We need new swear words

I don’t want to “reach out” to the loser Trump voters. I don’t want to “become friends” again. I don’t want to try to “understand” their pain or sorrow or any of that sh*t. Honestly, f#ck that sh*t.

I’m tired of people talking to me like I’m the idiot when they don’t even have a high-school diploma & I have two college degrees & the only thing that kept me from getting more education was a lack of money. I would have started auditing classes this fall, since I turned sixty this year but COVID f#cked up those plans. I LOVE to learn. I read ALL the time. But some people think that’s a sign of … I don’t know what. Nerdism or something. Oh, I guess I’m just not one of the cool kids.

I love this Isaas Asimov quote. I meet people all the time who insist that their lack of knowledge, their ignorance, is “just as good”, in fact, better, than my education. I don’t pretend to know everything; I just know what I know & strive to know more. When I don’t know something, I admit it & look for the answer. But these people … every single one of them a Trump voter … insist that whatever the facts are, they’re false, “fake news”, they “don’t believe it”, even when you’re showing them the information (!!), that it’s a conspiracy, or that the Bible says something different, etc.

But even people who have education & voted for Trump … you should have known better. You’re even worse, honestly. You know who you are. I can almost forgive the dum-asses who didn’t know any better. Almost. Not quite.

No, I’m not reaching out to anyone. I don’t care who you are. You can be someone in my own family. In fact, I’m glad that the coronavirus has made family reunions impossible; there’s people in my family I do not want to see because I do not want to have to be nice to them about this issue. YOU VOTED FOR DONALD TRUMP. YOU PUT OUR COUNTRY THROUGH FOUR YEARS OF HELL. “F#CK YOU” IS TOO NICE.

We need new swear words.

HILLARY WAS RIGHT

These people are definitely deplorable.

What’s even more deplorable is that they were able to breach security at the Capital so easily & walk through the halls like tourists. You know as well as I do that if they were #BLM or a million women in pussy hats or anti-war protesters from my childhood, teargas & rubber bullets would have greeted them.

This is only the beginning. Trump may have “pledged” to the transition to Biden’s coming administration, but he hasn’t conceded & he is still insisting that the election was “stolen” from him, setting up a “lost cause” scenario, which gives his followers a reason to continue fighting. Which is also deplorable.

Hillary was right. Perhaps she should change her name to Cassandra.
