Happy 1st of mutha fucking September!
Okay, so I have to tell you about my little bit of activism in this age of division, and racism and bullshit.
Now, I am not one to get super involved in politics and fighting for the greater good of mankind. Why? Because I tend to be more pro-planet, than pro-human. I look at this world from an out in space viewpoint, and there’s a part of me that wishes that a gigantic fireball would come ripping from the sky and obliterate our world. Wipe our miserable asses right out, crispy critters everywhere. Terrible to say, but hey- humans are inherently selfish and arrogant. Yes, there are a lot of good people in the world, but I feel that there are just as many assholes.
Having said that, it really hurts my heart to see all the shit that is happening in this country, and albeit, around the world. I can’t stand seeing the orange cheeto devil on the television screen and hear all the hate and division he sows. Fuck, the man can’t get out a coherent sentence otherwise, but when he’s defending alt-right jackasses, suddenly the words come?? And his stupid idiot followers, a large majority of whom are poor, white trash Americans whom he DOESN’T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT, eat it up like ice cream. His administration will never forward an agenda that will help out their demographic, yet still they rally behind him like he’s God.
I work with a chic whom is your typical Trumper. I’ll leave out the details. I have tried, I have TRIED to look beyond her beliefs and be friends with her but I have reached a point where I need to walk away. I thought of it as my civic duty to try to understand the other side, but I do understand it, and there’s nothing there but racist, bullshit beliefs pulled from the prez’s Twitter account (which is just an amazing tweet deck of SHIT, btw).
When the BLM protests were really getting going, she was walking around the office saying how the protesters needed to go get jobs. That found me in the manager’s office, and then there was an email that went around warning people to not talk politics in the office.
Last week, she texted me a picture of a new Trump face mask she got. I ignored it and hoped she wouldn’t try to wear it in the office. Welp.
By the way, she likes to do that- bait me? Try to get a reaction out of me? She knows I am not a Trumper, and I’m sure she thinks I’m just a liberal snowflake, offended by everything. We have never had a full blown discussion about it, as I’m sure that would totally be the end of our tentative friendship, but she knows. Every once in a while she’ll send me some trump whatever, and I ignore it, trying to be the bigger person, which she never is.
But the mask. Nope. No way in hell I’m letting that slide. Again, I marched to the manager’s office, and complained, and she apparently received an email telling her not to wear the mask again as it’s inappropriate.
Today, she’s angrily slamming down papers and huffing and puffing, and honestly guys- I’m living for it. I trolled her FB page and she threw up an angry post about how our managers are a bunch of hypocrites.
I mean, I can’t with this girl, guys. I’m curious how she would have reacted if I had shown up with a Make Trump Cry! mask. I’m pretttyyyy sure she would be complaining about that. Like, how does she not understand that if there’s no talking about politics, then a politically motivated, jackass mask like that is not going to fly?? Nice try, but how are you going to get mad about that??
So I’m just going to keep getting in her way. She can go ahead and wear her stupid fucking mask outside of work, and I hope she gets her ass kicked someday. Ok, not really. What I really hope for, which will never happen, is for her to wake up and realize how much the Prez doesn’t give a shit about her. He doesn’t give a shit about her poor country ass or anyone else except those at the top who can help line his fat (in both senses of the word) pockets.
In closing, I just want to say that I recognize that there are people on both sides of the aisle that are causing trouble instead of helping fix our division. It’s not just tRumpers, but the liberals throw stones as well. This is why I am pro-planet. Humans just suck a lot of the time, no matter what their political beliefs are. If this wasn’t such a crucially important election, I would write in Mother Earth on my ballot. But it’s too important for that.
So this is my little corner of the world that I will keep fighting for and to keep this little bitch in her place.
