Well, I tried to avoid the news, but we awoke at 3:30am, unable to sleep. Finally checked things at 5pm.
I'm angry, terrified, sad, disgusted, and ashamed.
This country is supposed to be better than this, but we're not. Clearly, we're not. We've elected a TV celebrity on the basis that he says the sexist, racist, homophobic things that so many people here want to say, but feel persecuted because they get criticized for it. Fuck those people.
And, yes, there's plenty of blame. We can blame the DNC for fighting against Sanders (who I don't think would have fared much better). We can blame Sanders for staying in as long as he did. We can blame third party voters. We can blame the media.
But the bottom line is that a majority of the American people want a sexist, racist, homophobic asshole for President. They revel in it.
I personally plan on calling them out at every opportunity.
Seriously, I'm terrified, and I'm a straight white cis male. I can't imagine how marginalized people feel right now. This is, literally, how Nazi Germany started. Literally. No exaggeration. No Godwin. Literally.
I've said it before, but it's true. White people are the problem with this country.
Nauseated. I forgot to add "nauseated."
