It’s dark outside right now because the sun isn’t shining on this part of our planet. Tomorrow, as the earth spins, the sun will return, and most of you reading this will be doing so in a new, cold, scary reality where Donald Trump has just been elected president of America.
I am not happy about this, or even remotely able to wrap my head around what this will mean. The meltdowns and visceral reactions on Twitter have been something to see. One person I follow stated simply FUCKING WHITE PEOPLE.
I know that leading up to tonight I’ve had borderline panic attacks from the tremendous anticipation building and building that this would be the outcome of our “election” and Donald Trump would win.
That reality appears to be happening, and there are lots of people beginning their journey on the initial stages of grief over these “shocking” results.
If that journey includes scapegoating Trump supporters for the economic crisis that was going to happen regardless of who was elected, then you are playing into the oligarchs hands by going to war against the wrong people.
Don’t go to war against the wrong people, America. Even though that’s what we’ve been doing for decades.
