“Your use of the word ‘deplorable’ is akin to the N word for African Americans and thus shows your bigotry for half of America” – Will Marler
This was a comment I received about one of my post, “the word ‘deplorable’ is akin to the N word”. As most of us honor a great American, statesman and hero in Senator John McCain a few, or as the delusional Mr. Marler over estimates “half”, continue to support and defend an immoral, classless, piece of shit in Donald Trump.
Want to understand how far the 39% have fallen? Two recent polls conducted by YouGov and The Economist found that the overwhelming majority of Trump voters don’t think that using the N-word makes white people racist and less than half think the slur is offensive. A combination of the two polls found that only 18 percent of Trump voters believe using the racial epithet makes white people racist and just 42 percent find the term offensive. Over 70 percent of Trump supporters indicated that they would still cast their vote for a political candidate even if they had said the N-word.
These 39% have lost their way. Don’t believe me? How about these little nuggets of wisdom from Trump supporter Jacob Wohl; “You’ve got to be kidding me! Calling black kids victims of segregation is as stupid as calling Jewish kids victims of the Holocaust.” and how about this gem “Most KKK and White Supremacist groups are run and funded by the Deep State FBI.”
“We gather to mourn the passing of American greatness — the real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice, those that live lives of comfort and privilege while he suffered and served.” – Meghan McCain
We can’t save these people, their minds and their morals have rotted to their core. Like Trump, they are too far gone. Reality has simply passed them by. But here is the thing, we don’t need them. Let their brains decay with hate and racism. Let their mouths spew contempt and scorn for this great country. Let their lifeless, white souls die a slow, and agonizing death. And let’s all praise the day they get to face brown Jesus, middle eastern Jesus and answer the question “What did you do for the least of these? The brown ones? The gay ones? The Muslim ones? The poor ones? The black ones?”
“We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries that have sown resentment and hatred and violence in all the corners of the globe. We weaken it when we hide behind walls, rather than tear them down; when we doubt the power of our ideals, rather than trust them to be the great force for change they have always been.”- Senator John McCain
