If You Don't Vote Democrat This November, Then Fuck You

I'm not a "supporter." I actually think everything about this election cycle is disgusting. Sad. Uninspiring. I've been mostly apathetic. From white feminism to #bernieorbust to the HRC to Bernie Bros I'm actually so fed up that I don't read or watch any news related to our candidates any more. I left Trump out above because that white devil man doesn't need any more acknowledgment from me. But curiously y'all are about to hand him the election? And for what? Because you're salty that your candidate isn't going to compete for the presidency? Bernie put up a good fight, a really, really good fight. And god damn he has some amazing ideas that would totally revolutionize American culture, economics and our society in general, but he's not going to be the president of the United States. Deal with it. Right now, the only two people that have any chance at that are Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. DONALD FUCKING TRUMP. This isn't a fucking joke. This is REAL. And y'all have the audacity to sit back and say "I won't vote" or "I'll vote for Trump" or "I'll vote for ___________ so & so who isn't going to become president but it's cute you voted for them one time because of your principles." It's bullshit. And to be frank, how fucking dare you.

Forty-nine people were killed at a gay club called Pulse in Orlando, Florida this weekend. FORTY-NINE. A singer who was on "The Voice" was killed less than 24 hours before that by a crazed white man with a gun. Black and brown people are executed by police with guns on a regular basis, so much so that it's barely news anymore. But you're willing to let a white supremacist, misogynist scam artist who supports the idea of bringing MORE guns into elementary schools (among other places) to become the president of the United States because your candidate didn't make it to the finals? HOW FUCKING DARE YOU.

WE ARE DYING. I'm sorry that an aging crotchety white man didn't fulfill all of your hopeful revolutionary Obama-redux fantasies. I truly am. I actually want someone like Bernie Sanders to be the president. I want our entire social, governmental and economic structures to change drastically. I'm just as disgusted as you by Hillary Clinton's ties to big business and corporate greed. But I'm also living in reality. I can have hopeful visions for the future and accept the present. Maybe that's because I'm a person of color who watches in horror almost every day of the week when I see new videos of other people of color harassed, mistreated, degraded, brutalized and murdered by the authoritative systems of our white supremacist nation. Have you ever experienced this reality?

THIS IS IT. It's either going to be Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump who's sworn into office this November. How many people will suffer a multitude of hardships under a Trump presidency? How many people will continue to live in danger? How much worse will it get under a president who advocates violence against those who don't agree with you or are different than you? You'll be fine because you have enough money to keep you safe? What about me? I don't have all that money. You didn't know anyone who got shot last night? That sort of thing would never happen to you? I'm scrolling through my Facebook wall seeing desperate plea after plea and prayer after prayer hoping that friends and loved ones are still alive. But you can't vote democrat if it's not your candidate because of your "morals." HOW FUCKING DARE YOU.

Honestly I don't give a fuck how you feel about any candidate. It's absolutely irrelevant to me. If you are a person with a soul, who wants to see any further good develop from mankind in the next four years, you will do whatever you can to stop Donald Trump from becoming the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. Even if that means voting for a white female career politician who's played the game just as dirty as every man who's come before her, including our current president. Don't y'all wish we could just vote him in another four years? Maybe you wouldn't if you took a look at his donor list. But would you risk letting Trump win if Obama was the Democratic nominee? Would his shadiness matter then like Hillary's does so deeply to you? This country absolutely needs a revolution. But at this moment in time, you're literally choosing between the somewhat unlikely possibility of progressive change or an orange reality tv star who won't renounce support from white supremacists. And somehow you expect me to accept that your conscience or morals matter at all? FUCK YOU.

WE ARE DYING. Please don't hand our lives over to this white devil madman. You might survive this. We might not. Do whatever you can to help us. Help me. Please don't let Donald Trump become the president of the United States. I don't want our blood to be on your hands.
