When I woke up this morning, I’d hoped the nightmare would be over; but to my dismay it’s just fucking beginning.
And now that the initial shock has worn off, I’m starting to really feel my ugly, angry, antisocial destructive feels.
But rather than breaking everything within striking distance, or rioting in the streets (always bad for anyone who doesn’t want a criminal record, but especially for someone of color) I’ve elected to start a post for explicitly for venting, via the posting of enraged gifs/memes.
Maybe it will be like some of my lesser threads, with few respondents, or maybe it will be descended upon by the small but relentless trickle of trolls that live for discord chaos and negativity.
Or maybe it will actually be cathartic; who knows?
First off, thank you. Second, tis time to renew the old passport. Third, dafuq just happened in a country I was assured had enough latin@ vote to prevent nuclear war? My son knows, but I still don’t know what to tell him.
Yes rage, but preferably directed rage. Anger is a powerful and dangerous force that has the power to awake the emotions and feelings of a nation, something which our country seems to dearly need need right now… then again randomly smashing shit does have a certain appeal in my current mind set.
Trump supporters have effectively adopted a campaign platform of doing whatever makes liberals angry. Left-wing rage is like a giant neon sign in the desert telling them they are on the right path. Given last night’s erection, I have no doubt that they will only be further emboldened.
This is not new. This has been their guiding star since 1992.
I’ve been reading a lot today, and come to the conclusion the real meaning of this election is Black lives don’t matter. Footnote: Latino, Muslim, but it’s the uppity Blacks who made the most noise. It didn’t begin with the election; it began with the end of the Voting Rights Act. It will be a long long time before it is restored.
