A brilliant article.
Thank you, @BlackWomxnFor! Black trans and cis women, gender-nonconforming, and nonbinary people are the backbone of our democracy and I don’t take this endorsement lightly. I’m committed to fighting alongside you for the big, structural change our country needs.
And you are telling me she’s not an idiot? If this were Hillary, I’d know she’s laughing at the fools who like this kind of thing because she’d say anything to get power. I liked that about her. But this tool might actually believe that “non-binary people are the backbone of our democracy,” whatever that means.
And what’s the point of swapping a known idiot for a less known but just as stupid one?
I’d absolutely vote for Hillary over any of the doofuses that the Democrats are running right now. Or, ideally, for Bernie like he was his whole life until fame turned him into a joke.
And here’s Soviet-style totalitarianism in Canada. Again, this is not about the girl’s beliefs or the practice she opposes. There were obviously no rainbow poppies in the USSR. Back there it would be about the red young pioneer kerchief. Or, more likely, if we are talking about a 17-year-old, girl a pair of earrings she refused to take off. But the self-righteousness of her hounders and the language they choose would be identical.
Of course, I also think that the practice of sticking rainbows on anything because it’s fashionable to virtue-signal is idiotic and does absolutely nothing for gay rights. Zero gay people were helped (or, I’m guessing, asked for) by this girl’s persecution. But that’s not even the point in this story, though.
I know I sound like a broken record with this kind of thing but I really, truly recognize something sinister being created around us and I don’t know how to convince people to take it seriously. The “it can’t happen here” mentality is too strong.
