I went to sleep last night before it was all over. I knew where it was headed, I just could not watch it get there. I think a part of me was hoping it was all a bad dream and I would wake up this morning to a very different reality.
The truth is, we did wake up this morning to a different reality. One were a reality TV star and a business man with zero political experience has become the leader of our country. He will represent us on the international stage. This is terrifying to me. You elected, and I say YOU because I did not vote for this man, a man who lashes out at criticism on Social Media. You elected a man who things countries like Iran and North Korean SHOULD have nuclear weapons. You elected a man who has repeatedly asked why we do not use our nuclear weapons. You elected a man who is short tempered and short sighted and handed him the US Military to do his bidding. You elected a man who wants to ban immigration. Well guess what, THIS FUCKING COUNTRY WAS BUILT ON IMMIGRATION.
His campaign slogan has been “Make America Great Again” HAHAHAHA here is what America can look like under President Trump
– Journalists threatened with law suits for writing anything negative about the President
– LGBTQ+, Women, POC, Latinos, Muslims, and anyone else who is not a white, male, Christian will now live in fear over their rights
– 22 Million Americans are at risk of losing health care coverage if the ACA is repealed by Republicans.
– Provisions such as free birth control, not being denied coverage for a pre-existing condition are all at risk if the ACA is repealed
HOW THE ACTUAL FUCK DOES ANY OF THAT MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
Hate, intolerance, fear won last night. But that is only one night. We have until January 20, 2017 to recover, regroup and reenergize. We are in for the fight of our lives.
To all the women in America I STAND WITH YOU
To the LGBTQ+ community I STAND WITH YOU
To the African American community I STAND WITH YOU
To all Muslim Americans I STAND WITH YOU
To all Latino Americans I STAND WITH YOU
To all those who immigrated to our country for a better life I STAND WITH YOU
To all those hoping to one day feel their war torn countries to provide a better life for their family in America I STAND WITH YOU
To Democrats that have to endure 4 years of intolerance from our nations leader I STAND WITH YOU
To Republicans who are unsure about what they just did to the country I STAND WITH YOU
To the Middle Class who just watched the light of hope for our economy burn out I STAND WITH YOU
I am scared for our future, I am scared for our economy, I am scared for the safety of every American citizen who identifies with a minority group. I am scared for our Allies around the world.
We will get through this, we have to. What other choice is there?
