Congratulations to the racists, the white supremacists, the Muslim-haters, the climate-change deniers, the homophobes, the misogynists, the pussy-grabbers and our very good friends in the coal industry: the world is yours again. You got your man. Your Christian Muslim-hating pussy-grabbing white-supremacist man.
And there we were trying to make men like that extinct. No longer on the endangered lists, bigots can flourish. No longer forced to apologise, acquiesce, or be penalised for your world view. Your ‘Me First’ approach has a mandate. (And by mandate I mean ‘approval’, not a man on a date with an other man. You are clearly not into that.)
Hooray, your hateful bigotry and prejudice are once again mainstream! I can hear the banjos calling. Your cops can continue shooting black men because, contrary to the slogan, your mantra is that black lives don’t matter. Rednecks can start calling black men niggers, gay people get to be reinstated as faggots and women, well women can go back to sucking cock and scrubbing floors. And not having any ideas about being in charge. Women are just pussy delivery.
My commiserations to liberal forward-thinking Americans who are now clinically depressed and suffering from profound anxiety and paranoia. And for good reason. The zombie apocalypse has happened. The living have locked their doors and gone inside to weep, but the flesh-eaters are outside. It’s only a matter of time.
That’s how hatred and fear and stupidity works. It’s never spread by evidence or intelligence. It’s contagion. Used to be word of mouth, but now we have an internet full of trolls who can only consume and deliver tweet-sized bites of conspiratorial, bullshit-based propaganda.
Sorry, baby boomers. As it turns out, the whole of the 1960s was for nought. We’ve turned the clock back. Everything won is lost. It’s official. With Donald Trump as president the new world order has become abundantly clear. Facts are out. Conspiracy and self-interest are in.
It’s been a long time since a presidential candidate who has been endorsed by the Ku Klux Klan actually won office.
Mr Trump got the White House and the white hood. Looks like the nostalgia trend for the ‘good old days’ isn’t just going to include grabbing our vaginas like they’re a shrimp cocktail at a smorgasbord; looks like lynchings are gunna be back in vogue too, along with poofter bashings, witch hunts and rape as a leisure activity.
Before you start bleating on about how great Donald Trump is, think about what it means to be endorsed by the KKK. These are white supremacists who believe all non-Caucasian people are inferior and have no place in the United States which, according to them, is home to white Christians. And if you were thinking of joining this progressive group of forward thinkers, just a reminder that all members of KKK must be 100 per cent white and Christian. Hmmm, to get their endorsement, you’d have to share their values. They’re even planning a Trump victory parade in North Carolina. So here it comes, an all-white Christian America? Didn’t Bing sing about this? ‘I’m dreaming of a white Christian.’ Holy shit, I can smell Armageddon from here.
So before I hear one more stupid conspiratorial bleat about Obama or Clinton, here are some actual verifiable facts about the maniac who’s now president. Things that were actually said. Trump has stated he is totally against abortion. He doesn’t support gay marriage. He said he would stop Muslims coming into America. He called Mexicans druggies and rapists and said he was going to build a wall. In his campaign he mocked a reporter with a disability and has shown continual indifference to people with disabilities. His disregard for women and his belief that as a boss that he can sexually harass women was evident in the pussy-grab leak.
He has been on repeated rape charges that are mysteriously ’dropped’. The most recent was the rape of a 13-year-old girl at convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s private parties. He’s clearly a charismatic sociopath. If you ever wondered how Hitler gained the trust of his people and then managed to murder six million Jews then strap yourself in, because the real-time re-enactment has just begun.
There was only one group Trump missed vilifying: dumb white people. We certainly have an over-supply. Expect the Pauline Hanson for PM campaign to start any time soon.
