I won’t always be writing about the: Cheeto-In-Cheif, but I did want to post this film because this is what the core of Trump’s America consists of. Don’t kid yourself, this is no small faction. This is the core and Kelly Ann Conway’s double talk on TV, her “alternative facts” and Dan Spicer’s outright LIES as they are commonly referred to are nothing more than smoke and mirrors. This is no small faction because these individuals are everywhere. I do mean everywhere, emboldened by a white supremacist sympathizing malignant narcissist that was elected President.
Donald Trump hammered home in his inaugural address outside the Capitol building Friday the promise he had sewn onto so many red ballcaps: that he would Make America Great Again. In the same spot the following day, Women’s March on Washington protesters with far less nostalgia for America’s past – women who lived through the Civil Rights movement, who came of age in an era when abortion was criminalized, who have vivid memories of a time when gay men and women were regularly victimized – have gathered to say, We are not going back. I’m […]

I am completely disappointed in the United States, In it’s citizens who are soo going to realize they’ve fucked themselves over, in Obama who consistently took it up the arse to appease Republicans who worked so arduously and succeeded in erasing his legacy. Even Björk understands the notion of white supremacy. She Gets It by a I’ve enjoyed her music for 20 years, and though she is often parodied, her way of thinking is similar to my own. It’s is Pensive, Reflective and Polychronic. Even Back Then She Got it. Related articles Former […]
As I watch Republican incumbent after incumbent win hold of their seat, the idea that this election was about “change” is garbage. This was about hate. Nothing more and nothing less. There is NO WAY you get this result because something is about “change”. The only reason “white” America stands so squarely against every other group is to retain supremacy. Change my ass. But as I previously wrote, there were Black and Brown people who voted for Trump. There were somke in the LGBTQRIS.T.U.P.I.Ds who voted for him also. You can lump those people in […]
