Speaking of that 2016 Election; please note that if you advocated for Sec. Hillary Clinton, and/or donated to her, and/or voted for her, and you believe you did the best that you could, then you may now rest. Know that since you worked hard, the awful results aren’t your fault! Unfortunately, you now get to watch your worst nightmares unfold. You know, the ones you kept telling all of those hard heads would happen, if they didn’t roll up their sleeves.
As for those who got hung up on the Super predator Hillary bullsht, or that crime bill that Bernie-the-White-Savior voted for, or the boring Wall Street speeches read out loud by media whores for Wikileaks ; I feel ya! But if you chose to follow the “Bernie or Bust” folks like Cornell West, Nina what’s her face, Susan I’ve-got-a-movie-contract-so-I’ll-be-just-fine Sarandon, an’ the rest of that crew… YO, y’all got punked!
If your friends told you it didn’t matter who won, than you’ve got some dumb-ass friends, cause even Radical Angela Davis urged you to vote for Hillary! Angela, ya know, the real-life radical (not pretending cause it’s chic). She must have had an inkling that this was an important election; certainly more important than chasing Pokemon or talking sht on Facebook! However, If you still decided not to vote in order to send a “message” to the establishment; so sorry-the new establishment didn’t hear a damn thing you said; but they say “thank you”!
Perhaps you didn’t vote due to having better things to do, or you just weren’t excited enough to vote for the boring White lady cause she wasn’t Barack Obama. Well enjoy the upcoming world that you helped create! You know, the one where Barack Obama’s legacy will be systematically erased.
So now you’re mad as hell, and wondering if there will be a revolution? The answer is I tend to doubt it. But my question to you is, if there is one, will you be willing to die in it? Let me guess–you doubt it?
As a result of your inaction, many of your brothers and sisters will be going to private prisons, enriching the 1%, and possibly used as labor to build Trump’s Wall. That is, of course, if they aren’t killed first in some unexplained way. I’m sure that you are aware that many poor people, those you pretended to care about, will no longer have food stamps to feed their kids, or preventive healthcare to keep them from dying early. Young children will have their dignity assaulted and their safety placed in jeopardy. Many will never climb out of the circumstances they were born into through no fault of their own, because For them the American Dream IS DOA.
So my Peeps who didn’t do enough, did nothing, or actively worked to malign the old White Lady who was the only person who could save us from ourselves, listen to what you need to do now: Kiss and hug your beautiful kids and/or your adult loved ones, and right before you close your eyes at night, understand this; not only did you make a difference in affecting the lives of millions in the worse of ways, but you get to watch it all from your mighty righteous perch. Enjoy the fruits of your self-indulgence! You’ve earned it! By golly, you won! But, but, maybe you’ll vote in those boring 2018 midterm elections? Maybe you will, if in the next two years, you’re personally negatively affected… otherwise, I tend to doubt it.
