Buckle Up Buttercup.

Fifty million Americans voted for a belligerent, draft-dodging, sexual assaulting, race-baiting, tax-evading, fear monger.

The depth of my sorrow has no words.

How can anyone say their vote for Trump was not an affirmation of his hateful antics and politics of fear? Or that his election did not legitimize the racist, sexist, xenophobic and violent tendencies that represent the basest of human emotions and seem to proliferate among his staunchest supporters?

Asra Nomani says that left has to come to center and the right has to come to the center… And yet Trump is elected on a platform of hate and exclusion and extremism. Yeah. Way to encourage centrism.

(Psst. Right extremism inspires/invokes left extremism.)

You haven’t seen extremism from me.

Buckle up buttercup because shit’s about to get real.

  1. These posts have been the best to wake up to ❤ (and that's saying something at 6:30am!!) Thank you for writing them! I feel exactly the same — baffled, miserable, so so disappointed, but revved up and determined to make things better. We can do it! xx
