I am still in shock. For the longest time I thought Trump was going to win, and then for the last two weeks or so leading up to the election I really thought Hillary was going to win, I'm not a real supporter of Hillary, but obviously I prefer her over Trump. I though Donald had sealed his fate when P gate happened. Sorry, I have always hated the p word. But even staunch republicans were denouncing Trump after that. To be honest, I'm not even mad at Trump. I mean, he's a dick, always has and always will be. But he has always shown us who he is. He has been tweeting misogynistic thoughts on women for years. Way before the election. I am however disgusted and deeply saddened that I live in a country that voted him in. What got him voted in was the wall, and banning Muslims.
For anyone who has been reading my blog since the beginning might remember the dark days of me living in Erie PA. I was shocked by the racism. I had been living in the liberal bubble of Seattle, and I didn't even know there were still so many people with so much hate and ignorance in their hearts. I was so appalled. I came to the scary conclusion that obviously the ignorant citizens of Erie were not alone, obviously there were other cities with like minded people. Shudder.
But I still thought that this type of hideous thinking was the minority. I am heartbroken that I was wrong. Donald Trump didn't win on Tuesday. Hate and ignorance won. Trump would not have had the impact he had if he wouldn't have talked of the wall, and banning Muslims. And the p grabbing and kissing without permission is just icing on the cake. Because men that think along the lines of Trump have no respect for women either. We're just here to be pretty. Trust me, I've served food and drinks to those kind of men my whole adult life.
I am sad today for the earth and the animals. Donald Trumps sons go trophy hunting. Trophy hunting. Killing innocent animals for no reason other than to feel like a man. And I was watching someone from Scotland talk of Trump, and he was telling a story of Trump fighting against their government because they wanted to be more efficient and earth friendly and install wind turbines, and he fought them in court because he was worried it would hurt the view from on of his golf courses or resorts or something. Like this guy doesn't give a shit about the environment. He doesn't even believe in climate change.
I feel physically ill and emotionally drained. The bullies won. Ignorance won. And again, I'm not talking about Trump. I'm talking about the people who voted him in.
I'm sorry this post is such a downer. I'm not in the positive let's fight hate with love head space yet. I'm more of the let's protest in the street.
I feel sad, scared, and very angry.
