MY TWO CENTS:
“If we don’t stop Trump, we deserve him.”
The great god Cher tweeted this right before the general election in 2016. And it’s hard for me to believe it, but here we go again. The pundits this morning are saying the Democrats came out swinging at the debate last night, but because they were all swinging at each other the actual winner was Trump himself. We MUST save our vitriol for the tyrant occupying the White House and STOP attacking those wanting to unseat him. Please, by all means, lift up the Democratic/Independent candidate you like best, sing their praises to the rooftops, but why Why WHY must we viciously tear down the ones we don’t like? WHY???
I know fellow queer activists doggedly shouting that they “loathe” Pete Buttigieg (there is a fantastic piece out there by Emily Colucci entitled “Yes, Pete Buttigieg Is Gay Enough: You’re Just Assholes”), I cannot tell you the amount of people I now see stating that they will “Vote Blue No Matter Who” EXCEPT for this one or that one, the exhausting endless mud-slinging discussion rounds of questioning electability, ageism declarations, fear of a misogynistic electorate, and to what end?
I do firmly believe we are all strongly united in our crusade to defeat Trump, I really do believe that. I just wish we would all ACT like it. Until then, we continue to eat our own. And soon, there will be nothing left. NOTHING. #FuckTrump#VoteBlue#VoteBlueNoMatterWho#TickTock#ITMFA#FuckBarr#FuckPompeo#GOP#GreedOverPeople#Resist#NeverForget#RiseUp#Revolt#POS#TraitorInChief#NotMyPresident#ShitShow#RepublicanHateKills#Cher

"Built in opposition to the institution of slavery, the Republican Party is now a reliable opponent of equality and a malignant force in American life—a cancer within a patient in denial about the nature and severity of her condition." ⠀
Osita Nwanevu argues in @newrepublic's latest edition that the Republican Party needs to be abolished. The March issue, available digitally and on newsstands today, also marks the launch of a print redesign. Click the link in our bio to read Osita's story and see our new look!⠀
