Warning: This post contains adult language thanks in large part to a Trump supporter
I wasn’t going to write about this. Honestly I was just going to chalk it up to a sore loser but after this most recent encounter I thought I would share my experiences with you.
As I indicated in my previous post I was in Charleston, SC this weekend. On the back of my car I had two Hillary Clinton stickers, a “Love Trumps Hate” and a “Clinton – Kaine 2016”. Let me remind you that South Carolina is a solid red state, no wavering or waffling on this fact.
Sometime this past Saturday, in a parking deck on St. Phillips Street, someone peeled my Hillary stickers off my car and replaced them with a Tim Scott for Senate sticker. Honestly I was surprised but not mad. Better to have a two dollar sticker removed than a brick thrown through my window. Also, I understand that this is an emotional contest and after having lost the last two presidential elections and possibly a third come this November, the majority of citizens in my state are tired of losing.
So when I got home yesterday, I put two more Hillary stickers on my car and went on my merry way. Then I came home for lunch today. I was driving down the road, minding my own business when a red pickup truck following behind me got very close to my rear bumper and started beeping the horn. I wasn’t sure what was going on and looked in my rearview mirror. What I saw was a very angry man yelling and giving me the finger. Now, sometimes I drive too slow so I checked my speed and determined that wasn’t the issue. He aggressively stepped on the gas and pulled into the lane next to me. His window was down so I rolled my down also and heard “Fuck Hillary and Fuck you!” over and over while he waved a Trump button at me. I got to be honest, I was stunned and a little scared. This dumb redneck was angry, I mean, pull a gun on you angry. But we were coming up on a traffic light, still right beside of each other and rather than stopping and facing me like a man, this piece of shit blew through the red light.
Clinton has taken a lot of heat for saying “you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables” labeling them racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, and Islamaphobic. You know at first I thought this was a harsh statement but now I agree with her. I don’t understand all this anger, all this hate and I blame one person for it, I blame Trump.
Think about the platform Trump has run on from the very beginning, no facts, no plan, no reasoning, no rational, just fear, hate and anger. What he has stirred up isn’t healthy and creating unrest without a plan of action is irresponsible. He preys on the weakness, the fear, the vulnerabilities of people, people who are obviously not smart enough to see through the bullshit he spews. Trump is accountable to no one certainly not his basket of deplorables. He doesn’t give shit about me or you, hell he doesn’t give a shit about this country. His make “Make America Great Again” is just a slogan to sell hats and t-shirts. Hopefully he was smart enough to use American made hats but he doesn’t give a shit where they were made as long as he can buy them cheap. Here is what the deplorables will learn on November 9th, Donald Trump cares about one thing and one thing only……Donald Trump.
So to the dick-head who peeled the Hillary stickers off my car and to the redneck in the pickup truck yelling “Fuck you”, if you aren’t happy when you wake-up on November 9th and if you don’t believe you will ever be happy again feel free to leave this great country, I will help you pack.
