A White Woman’s Referendum
According to Michelle Bachmann, gay activists, members of the Black Lives Matter and Islamists are plotting together to overthrow the American government.
Let me quote her properly from Pink News:
“The answer is simple, Black Lives Matters, the gay agenda, as well as Islamic supremacism, all seek domination over American freedoms.
“They cannot reach their aims separately, but they can realize the fall of individual liberties if they work together. Once liberties fall, the groups break with each other in a race to impose their particular views on the American populace.
“Causing liberties to fall is a long-term project, and they will use whatever allies they can get to realize that phase of their goals.”
Hmmm. Gays, Muslims and Black Lives Matter are destroying America, huh? Sigh.
“Requesting permission to tear into this bullshit.”
“Permission granted: Release the hounds!”
The rantings of fearful whites who are experiencing, possibly for the first time, the spectre of economic disenfranchisement, having to compete for jobs just like everyone else without the benefits of nepotism, cronyism or utilizing the ‘good old boys’ network, must be taking its toll on the middle class that used to exist in this country before…
The middle class which benefited from economic redlining, property ownership, the best education in the world and a nation after World War II that didn’t have to do any reconstruction on American soil allowing this nation to move ahead of any nation that did. (Everyone else…)
Meanwhile, minority soldiers who fought for the freedom of others overseas were still denied rights here at home. Seems fair in the scheme of things, after all, this was White America circa 1950. A nation for white people, by white people and everyone else needed to remember their place.
Wait just a goddamn minute. Why are any of you listening to Michelle Bachmann? Easily one of the most barely-literate excuses for a politician since her sister in word-saladry, Sarah Palin, became governor of Alaska.
Between the two of them, they have made every perspective I had on the qualities one needed to be a politician, moot. There had never been a worse time to be a white woman in America, listening to the two of them abuse the English language, when they weren’t abusing their family members or the people stupid enough (yes, I said it) to vote for them in the first place.
I never thought I could replace these two women in my Halls of Absolutely the Most Useless Lifeforms Alive category until Betsy DeVos and KellyAnn Conway came onto the scene in the Trump Dynasty.
DeVos has been nominated for a positions she has stood opposed to, her entire silver-spooned, golden-toilet seated and pampered life: the destruction of the public school system she was cruelly tortured in growing up, forced to learn useless facts which would prevent her from having a career in Blackwater…before realizing the horror of her career choice and became a schoolteacher for wayward orphans, reaching the role of superintendent of public schools for the state of Michigan.
Her rise to the role of Secretary of Education was the natural progression for someone who overcame the horrors of the public school systems, overcame the difficulties in improving schools for the state of Michigan and was prepared to bring her views to the United States of America, creating an education system not found in the 1950s but preparing us for an education system for 2050…
Oh wait. Wrong biography.
DeVos never went to a public school, never saw the inside of a public library, never became a schoolteacher. She has been in private schools her entire life, in fact her career has been created for her by the privileged life she has led, including having a seat on the board of Blackwater.
She has, using her family’s enormous wealth, fought against public education for most of her fabulously rich and spiritually-wretched life. Oh I know her biography said she gave to philanthropic endeavors, but one of them would return children to the ranks of the working poor because she feels they need the ethical and moral framework that can only be provided by child labor.
Somehow this has made her the perfect candidate to undermine the currently failing education system and replace it with the means for her to grow even richer privatizing education or at least so says Our Great Orange Rind, leader of the Republic of Trumplandia.
Meanwhile, the Mouth of the South (since she is always talking out of Trump’s ass) has continued to look into the camera with her cadaverous face and remind us how we should look into Trump’s heart of darkness and expect to find the chewy center of Humanity he is showing to minorities, Muslims, Mexicans, people of color in general, gays, women, military families, federal workers, people vulnerable to the effects of climate change, and anyone America will be bombing back to the Stone Age next week before offering to repair their countries at twice what its worth.
Doesn’t that sound like a protection racket? “Nice country you have here. Be a shame if anything happen to it. Anything Yuge!” Left is right, up is down, in is out, peace is war and facts aren’t facts anymore.
Thanks to Kellyanne Conway, we must be prepared to accept anything his royal Orangeness has to offer, because it must be true. It must be right. He has his own media company now, the Voice of America (no seriously, look it up)…
For Kellyanne, it is a simple as: HE SAID SO. LOOK INTO HIS HEART…
Kellyanne Conway, the incoming White House counsel to President-elect Donald Trump, declared on Monday morning that the media should cover what’s in her boss’s “heart” rather than what he actually says.
While discussing Meryl Streep’s criticism of how Trump ridiculed a disabled reporter during his presidential campaign, Conway told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that “that is not what he did.” After Cuomo pointed out that there is video showing Trump specifically mimicking the mannerisms of someone afflicted with arthrogryposis — the neurological condition of reporter Serge Kovaleski, who was the target of Trump’s jab — Conway asked why Cuomo refused to give Trump the benefit of the doubt.
“Because he’s making a disgusting gesture on video about Serge,” Cuomo replied.
“Why don’t you believe him? Why isn’t it taken at face value?” Conway replied. “You can’t give him the benefit of the doubt on this and he’s telling you what was in his heart? You want to go with what’s come out of his mouth rather than what’s in his heart.” — Salon; January 9, 2017
So, let’s make sure that we listen to Michelle Bachman, Sarah Palin, Betsy DeVos and Kellyanne Conway when they tell us what the problem is with America.
It is most certain to be the minority groups struggling to be left alone to love who they wish without governmental interference. It is surely the minorities who would like to not find themselves targeted by the police in every encounter.
They would like to know they could be stopped by the police and be able to make it home, alive. It would be great to be able to tell our kids “When you have a problem, a policeman is always a great place to go and ask for help. Because Black Lives Matter, right?
And for the citizens of this nation who sweat and serve, those faceless minorities we all take for granted, who do the work no one wants to do, and do it well, with pride in their efforts, who have for generations been the backbone of this once-great nation, they would like some goddamn respect. They aren’t asking you to love them. They are asking you to acknowledge them as people.
As individuals worthy of respect. As citizens promised an opportunity by the same ideals White people, like Michelle Bachmann, seem to believe belong exclusively to them. Military families, Muslim families, Mexican families who have been here serving this nation don’t deserve to be registered like cattle, don’t deserve to be shipped out of the country because they are citizens just like any other White person who lives in this country today.
And don’t get me started on the treatment of the Native Americans today. There should never be a president in office who does not regularly visit the Native Americans and beg their fucking forgiveness for the atrocities committed against their nation. Regularly. Ask what can be done to help them do better. Provide them with the best of resources as recompense for a crime that can’t be forgiven and most certainly shouldn’t be forgotten.
But that too, is the American way.
What you cannot earn, you steal. What you cannot steal, you take. What you cannot take, you fight for and betray. When betrayal isn’t good enough to buy silence, you kill your enemy until only you remain, telling your version of the truth.
Michelle Bachmann and white women like her should know. They betrayed women and minorities in this nation by voting against their own interests. Their own freedoms, their own reproductive rights, their own ability to earn a comparable wage — all out of fear. To protect their illusions. To protect their whiteness; their perceived future prosperity in a nation becoming ever more diverse. They voted against their own best interests in a future which might have looked better upon women in general if they had just stood up.
Carrying water for an administration that plans to drown you as a witch seems like an oxymoron doesn’t it? Or should I just say moronic and let you use your oxy in peace, Mrs. Bachmann?
As to your assertion that the gay agenda, the Muslims or Black Lives Matter is destroying the nation, you might want to see someone about your Cranial-Anal Inversion Therapy. You seem to be relapsing.
Our latest Atrocity in Action:
Trump's order already blocks green card, visa holders at airports
Within hours of President Trump's executive order limiting immigration from Muslim countries, green card and visa…
Gaslighting 101: Everyone who lives in America who wants to keep America somewhere near the ideals it stands for needs to recognize this insidious practice, in full effect at the White House. Read up and protect yourself.
