Hillary Clinton’s Blame Game

Let’s rewind to 2015, when she announced she was running. What did she do after that?

  1. Avoided the press until July 2016.
  2. Gave paid speeches.
  3. Avoided the public (doing campaign stops) until mid-2016.
  4. Sent surrogates around to stump for her instead of doing it herself.

She basically said, “You have no choice but to vote for me because I deserve it.”

We heard about paid speeches to Hollywood elite. To bankers. To insurance company execs. We asked see the transcripts. She said, “Fuck You”, in her own “I don’t talk to the press” way. Bernie asked to see them. Oh hell no.

Her surrogates, which included pundits on every single mainstream media outlet (network TV and cable news, plus paper and online newspapers like the NYT, Washington Post, LA Times, Chicago Tribune) had a field day with Bernie Sanders, inventing condescending crap like “Bernie Bros” and calling his Democratic Socialist views “communist”.  The Washington Post ran *11* negative articles on Bernie Sanders in *one* day.  Their corporate bias was so severe it was ugly.

Not ONCE did they stump for her on the issues.  Not once did they talk about her platform.  Or question it.  All they did was dump on Sanders and the Republican party.

When she DID show up to speak, the press fell all over themselves to get to talk to her. She ignored them.

When Trump became the nominee, what did she do then?  Nothing.  It was the same game she played with Sanders: dump on Trump (in Trump’s case, it was his daily lies, insults, slander, and offensive sexist baiting) while blaming the Republicans in general for simply being Republicans (not explaining what they did and why their platform screws people over).

Meanwhile, never once did she talk about Why she was running.  What was the goal?  What did she want?  All we got was rhetoric about “I’m not Trump” and this idiotic “I’m With Her” slogan that meant nothing.

Michelle and Barack Obama stumped for her during the Fall of 2016. Why not earlier? Why not more fervently? Because by that time, they didn’t believe in her any more than we did.

I kept asking myself, “Where is she?  Why doesn’t she talk to the people she *expects* to vote for her?”

Her rich white privilege was stuffed down our throats while she simply sat back and waited for the primaries to be over and to appear like a queen (just as Don Sr appeared like a king) at the Democratic Convention.  Her speech, by that point, merely echoed the establishment talking points.

Not once did she talk to the people about the things that matter.  The erosion of the Middle Class thanks to Reagan’s tax cuts.  The stagnation of the minimum wage.  The second-leading cause of bankruptcy:  healthcare.  The war on education.

But it’s our fault she lost.  It’s Bernie’s.

Do You Object to Athletes Sitting During the Anthem?

Exactly WTF are YOU doing during the playing of the anthem?

1. At home, sitting on your ass.
2. In the stands, talking, scratching your balls.
3. At the game, buying beer.
4. Driving. Why don’t you pull over and stand outside your car with your hand over your heart?
5. Shopping. Eating. Shitting.

Doing anything but standing with your hand over your heart listening to a song written by a pro-slavery racist sonofabitch.  Why isn’t the anthem played in its entirety? Because you’ll quickly see that it’s a pro-war, pro-slavery song.

Why don’t y’all stop whatever you’re doing every single time the anthem is playing, in every single game, at whatever arena they’re playing at?

Take a moment and ask why the goddamn anthem is being played at a sporting event. THIS is what’s known as indoctrination.

It’s Not About Abortion

Republican Lawmaker(Texas): Jail Time For Abortions Would Make Women ‘More Personally Responsible’ For Sex

It takes two, asshole.

This isn’t about abortion.

Get this thru your heads, pro-lifers. This isn’t about abortion.

It’s about misogyny and the oppression of women.

“Abortion kills babies!”

Fuck you. It does not. It kills embryos that are not sentient life forms and late-term abortions are rare, and if they’re necessary, it’s about the life of the mother or the fetus has life-threatening defects that will cause suffering to it should it be “born” as a live human.

If you cared so much about the life of innocent children, you’d do something about

a) Child rape, which includes porn/trafficking/slavery/prostitution
b) Child abuse–meaning physical assaults and abandonment
c) Child murder
d) Child welfare
e) Child abduction
f) Child care
g) Child education

You’d make sure the government fully funded the Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

You’d make child rape/abuse/murder a crime punishable by life in prison without parole.

You’d hold people accountable for the arrest of children (under 17) who have clearly been the victims of law enforcement predators.

You’d make marriage under 18 illegal.  At present, grown men marry 12- & 13-year-olds and the primary excuse (blame) is religion.  It’s not.  It’s pedophilia.  This isn’t 400 BCE or even 1400 CE.  It’s time to stop condoning predation by pervs.

You wouldn’t differentiate the cultures. All children would be loved and protected, not just your precious white privileged.

You’d be against the death penalty.

You’d force the government to boycott any country that condones and perpetuates all forms of child endangerment.

But you don’t.

This isn’t about abortion or the killing of fetuses.

This is about the subjugation, control, and oppression of women.  Period.

FYI:  The government doesn’t pay for abortions via Planned Parenthood.  It’s against the law.  It’s called the goddamn Hyde Amendment.  Look it up, you ignorant shitheels.

L Ron Hubbard and Donald J Trump are Personality Twins

I was listening to this psychologist who determined that Hubbard was a malignant narcissist, which is partially defined as a person who aggressively attacks someone who criticizes them or tells them what to do.

If you think about it, compare the two men, it’s like they share the same soul.

Hated and evaded the press.

Hated the government.

Considered the IRS the enemy.

Hated exercise.

Had libertarian ideas but was more extreme in individuality.

Vehemently racist.

He evaded taxes.

Had everyone investigated.

Made shit up and turned it into a philosophy that he sold to people.

He was Trump’s spiritual daddy.

Terrorists Are Also Abusers of Women

Jane Harkness (I love that last name–Torchwood and Dr. Who fans will know what I mean) makes a qualified case about terrorism: The men who do it, by and large, are also abusers of women.

It seems to me that the majority of resources intended for the prevention of terrorism should be to stop misogyny and the victimization of women. This deduction is on par with the serial killer triad, which is: Pyromania(fascination with setting fire to things or people), enuresis(inability to control urination during sleep), and cruelty to animals.

If there’s a child over the age of 10 who has been found to participate in all three of these indicators, that child needs to be hospitalized at a critical care facility for the insane. I’m *not* kidding.  However, former FBI profilers like John Douglas suggest that after the age of 12, a future serial killer is born because it is at that age that most children have personality affectations that are difficult to eradicate.  There are several past serial killers who committed murder before the age of 14.

To ignore this triad of symptoms is to be a (usually unknowing, but that’s the point) participant in future crimes.  Our society breeds these people.  It is We who have to put a stop to it and in the meantime, take care of the damaged (and I don’t mean killing them).  Some blame should be on those who created this aberrant human being, but it’s a case-by-case decision because so many families have been abusive for many generations.

It is also likely that many of these children have or will become political and religious terrorists and the abuse of women will be at the top of the list of criminal deeds.  While many won’t have abused their own female family members, it should be noted that most serial killers murder women exclusively.

Taking this into account, the same qualifiers can be a warning for current and future terrorists, except that the qualifier is the abuse of women. Combine that criminal behavior with an extremist philosophy and you have a potential terrorist (IMO, they have already acquired the terrorist moniker since they’ve committed terror on women). It doesn’t matter what skin color they have, what their religion (if any) is, and it doesn’t matter what class they belong to.  They all need to be stopped.

Your Personal Racism Meter

I think the best way to view your “racism” meter is to imagine a scenario.
It really doesn’t matter if you’re a woman or a man, but honestly, the threat meter ratchets up if you’re a woman b/c we live in a dangerously sexist society, never mind a racist one.

You’re walking down a sidewalk and you see a group of men. Young, old, take your pick, but they’re usually young and mid-range. (20s-30s and who the hell is afraid of a bunch of beginner teens)

They’re coming toward you. They’re joking, talking, whatever.

They spy you. If you’re a woman, you’re automatically on alert and feel threatened because society in general is blind where women’s fears are concerned. Honestly, we should go on the offensive and start belittling and catcalling, etc. and see how the hell they like it.

If you’re a man, you’re not threatened unless you belong to a minority that is daily threatened. Gay men, for example.

Now, if they’re white, how do you feel?

Black?

Personally, I’ve changed my outlook over the years. I used to feel threatened by black men because I was brainwashed by society in general to think this way. Now, I feel threatened when I see a group of white men congregating or coming toward me or even driving by. The racist ones think they’re being threatened by having this view put upon them, but the dumbfucks don’t understand that they’re the ones who rule and any condemnation toward their attitude makes them feel threatened and they literally can’t see how ironic that is, never mind seriously sick.

I’m a white woman (57) and I have a few prejudices against me–female, short, fat, poor, older. I have Native blood (1/8th, if my alcoholic dad could be trusted on his failing knowledge, and as a poor person, I can’t go get a DNA test just for shits and giggles) so I’m well aware of the racist history there.

I use this scenario as a test on my personal racism. I can say that I’m damn glad I’ve changed over the years, but it still pisses me off that I thought that shit to begin with.

Using Race When You Mean Skin Color or Culture

(repeating a facebook post)

Using Race When You Mean Skin Color or Culture

~

Dear … People:

When you say someone’s of a different race, you’re unknowingly (most of you) perpetuating a racist meme.

Those of us who aren’t prejudiced, bigoted, asshole racists have gotten into the habit of calling different cultures “races”.

What we all have to understand is that we’re all part of the human *race* and to refer to someone who’s Black, Asian, Indian, Mexican, Arab, Iraqi, etc. as a different race is actually a racist slur intended to dehumanize non-Caucasians.

I know you’re not doing it on purpose.  I think, however, that it’s high time we all acknowledge what we’ve been doing and to put a stop to it.  As for me, I’m not a member of the White race.  I’m a member of a race abbreviated as human being (homo sapien) with a mostly Caucasian background.

We should all be more vigilant, especially given the current climate of “last gasp” racist dicks who are so lost and afraid of a uniting of cultures that they’ve come out of the woodwork–mostly as a result of two electoral events:

  1.  The election of Barack Obama.  Twice.
  2.  The election of Donald Trump.  It will be only once.

We’re 8 months into a hate-filled, hate-condoned presidency.  Please.  Let’s put down the phones and bills and remotes and pay attention to what’s happening and what we can do about it.
