My Roommate is a Trump Supporter Part 2

trump

So, the other week I made a post about my roommate being a Trump supporter and all the horrible and stupid shit he says.  Well, with the release of the Mueller Report, he’s gone balls to the wall, fucking batshit nuts.

Which is ridiculous. I’m a very liberal person. However, I fully understand that Trump will win in 2020 because Democrats can’t get their shit together and nobody in the country has the balls to hold the Republican party accountable for anything.

So, why he’s mad, I’m not sure…..

He’s literally guaranteed Trump until 2024 (vomits)

But what makes me so sad is that he’s dug himself into this little hole. He listens only to male country singers. He watches only Fox News. He reads only Alt-Right websites. He has no friends in New York and never leaves the apartment because he feels the people here are mean to him, and judge him for being a Trump supporter….

WHICH IS SO FUNNY TO ME, BECAUSE AS A GAY GUY WHO GREW UP IN OHIO, I WAS CONSTANTLY TOLD BY PEOPLE LIKE HIM THAT I SHOULD JUST LEAVE OHIO AND GO RUN AWAY TO SOME BIG LIBERAL CITY WHERE I WOULDN’T BOTHER “REAL AMERICANS” SO MUCH. 

SO TO MY ROOMMATE, I’D SAY THE SAME – YOU CAN’T BE IN NEW YORK…THE CITY WHERE ALL OF US FROM THE MIDWEST HAVE TO RUN AWAY TO BECAUSE OF PEOPLE LIKE YOU… AND THEN BE MAD THAT NONE OF US WANT YOU HERE. 

YOUR PEOPLE CONSTANTLY TOLD ME TO GET OUT MY ENTIRE LIFE.

SO NOW I SAY THE SAME. 

GO BACK TO KENTUCKY WHERE YOU BELONG. 

bye

 

What was really terrifying though was the “stand-up comedy” he blasted from the living room the other day.  I have stand-up in quotes because I saw no comedy here. There weren’t even jokes.  I swear to you people, this is verbatim what was said —–

Comedian: You know who I really hate? Bernie Sanders! 

(Audience claps)

Comedian: What a fucking piece of shit right? 

(Audience bursts out laughing and cheering)

Comedian: Someone really needs to walk up to that motherfucker and just punch him in the fucking face! 

(Audience laughing uproariously)

Comedian:  Seriously, like, he wants to steal our money???? If he ever tries to steal my money I’m going beat the shit out of him!

(Audience going completely fucking nuts)

Comedian: I think Bernie doesn’t get that we’re powerful. If he ever comes for us, we’re gonna’ take him down! 

(Audience going so crazy I’m surprised the theater didn’t collapse)

 

People… this shit was scary.

Republicans went nuts when Samantha Bee called Ivanka a feckless cunt, and yet they have no problem with someone saying they’re going to beat Bernie Sanders to death?

Ya’ll, we are fucked. These people are terrifying. Can we please get our act together for 2020?  Please?

My New Roommate is a Trump Supporter…

maga

 

So, I know a lot of you think I’m a republican now after I’ve written some posts about how the left is getting super obnoxious.  However, I’m not. I’m very, very liberal. I just hate that the left has started putting everyone into shallow boxes just like the right.

However, even though I’m not a republican, my new roommates is.

And it’s literally nauseating. 

maga1

 

It’s a beautiful day in Manhattan, and I went for a nice walk to soak up all the wonderful sun. However, when I arrived home I found my new roommate in the living room with whatever white trash friend he’s managed to make in this city.

And here is just a collection of fun things I got to hear in my own apartment..

“If my boss was super gay, I wouldn’t work for him….”  (does he not know I’m gay?)

“My friend knows this guy in Texas who told him that this girl had a baby and then killed it and called it abortion and got away with it because of liberals…” (How fast can my eyes roll?)

“If a man is in a coma, liberals say we should be able to kill him…but if I walked in with a gun and shot him, it would be considered murder… how fucked up is that?” 

“Sentient means consciousness”  (It doesn’t)

“The liberal media has totally brainwashed the left.” (This is from the guy who exclusively watches Fox News…)

Liberals are elitists who made it improbable for white people from middle America to work their way up the economic ladder… Like, I could never get into these elite schools now!”…. (2 minutes later) “Liberals are socialists who are trying to make everyone equal….even though I work harder than people who work at McDonalds!”  (Elitist socialists…WAY TO GO DUDE!)

At that point I had to leave my apartment again, because I literally couldn’t handle it. I was 10 seconds away from losing my fucking mind.

And so, this is my new life.

Ladies and gentlemen, set your countdown clock, because it is only a matter of time before I lose my fucking shit.

Ready.

Set.

Go.

Why I hate East Coast Liberals

hipster

So, for starters I’m going to say, I’m liberal. I’m like, super, super beyond liberal. Having lived in countries like Canada, Australia and New Zealand, I’ve seen that a high minimum wage, universal healthcare, gun control, and strong social services for the underprivileged not only are possible, but they work. And they create strong, healthy, happy countries, with good stable economies. 

Don’t believe me? Here’s a few links for various studies.  Feel free to alert me when you’ve found America on any of these lists (But lets be real here, Republicans won’t believe anything besides Fox News anyways…so this is probably pointless)

CNBC

CNN

Telegraph

Global Peace Index

 

But anyways, I’m a stark raging liberal. However, I’m not a fucking idiot. And because I’m not an idiot, I have to let everyone know that I fucking hate East Coast Liberals. 

I’m at a cafe right now on the Upper West Side, and there are two obnoxious spoiled, privileged, Jewish liberals next to me saying the dumbest shit in the entire world. Here’s a small selection:

“Oh my God, you know who I love? Beto O’Rourke! He’s the next president.”

“I’m going to visit one of the refugee camps down south and interview LGBTQ migrants, because really, they’re a group that’s been ignored in the zeitgeist.”

“I’m taking a trip to Texas to visit southern synagogues because, like, life is different down in Texas, and I want to see what it’s like.  Do you know that there aren’t as many Jewish people down in Texas? Isn’t that strange?”

“You know it’s wrong when someone sees a white baby with a non-white mother pushing the stroller, and they assume it’s the baby’s nanny. It’s totally internalized racism!”

And the list goes on… in fact they’re still next to me. And I sort of want to kill them. Let’s unpack some of these quotes shall we? Examine where everything is going wrong with liberals these days.

 

Quote 1:

“Oh my God, you know who I love? Beto O’Rourke! He’s the next president.” 

hip

Ok, east coast liberals, listen up… up until this most recent election cycle, you had no fucking idea who Beto O’Rourke was. So can democrats please stop acting like he’s the Godsend you’ve all been waiting for? Besides, look at your track record with other democrats…you’ll just end up hating him anyways.

Don’t believe me?

Remember when you loved Hilary Clinton?  Do you love her now?  No. You all hate her.

Remember when you all loved Bill Clinton? Do you love him now?  No. You think he’s a sex offender.

Remember when you all loved Elizabeth Warren? Do you still love her now? No. You all hate her, and you actually turned on her quite quickly, considering that she’s actually a wonderful politician.

Remember when you all loved Nancy Pelosi? Yeah… ya’ll are turning on her pretty fast these days…

What’s the bottom line here? It’s this: Liberals demand across-the-board-perfection from their politicians (which is fucking hilarious considering that human perfection is impossible. And it’s a standard that none of you liberals even hold yourselves to). So, democrats will continue to burn down their own castle over dumb shit, and Trump will win again in 2020, because even though republicans are fucking selfish idiots, they at least have the power to agree in the name of winning elections.

 

Quote #2

“I’m going to visit one of the refugee camps down south and interview LGBTQ migrants, because really, they’re a group that’s been ignored in the zeitgeist.” 

hip1

Is it important to hear stories of diverse individuals?  Yes. But is it also SO INSANELY STUPID AND WRONG for some group of over-privileged Jews from Uptown Manhattan to go run down and “save” these poor lost puppies (Oh, I’m sorry…no they’re humans… it’s just that you treat them like lost puppies.) And you do all this simply because it will help your own social status.  You don’t just go hunt down LGBTQ migrants solely to use them for their oppression status if you’re actually a genuine person. Minorities are not a prop for you to use to increase your social standing you selfish fucking cunts. Stay in Manhattan and continue living off of daddy’s money. #Thanks.

 

Quote #3

“I’m taking a trip to Texas to visit southern synagogues because, like, life is different down in Texas, and I want to see what it’s like.  Do you know that there aren’t as many Jewish people down in Texas? Isn’t that strange?”

hip3

Again, democrats, you want to know why you’re going to lose the presidency again in 2020?  This is why. The fact that America is made up of 50 states, and you can only comprehend the lifestyles of people in about 5, maybe 10 at the very most, of those states, is why. Once again, these aren’t just props. Middle America isn’t just the setting to TV shows and novels. They’re actual states with actual people living there.

And if you want to live in your little bubbles in the big coastal cities and not even try to understand the rest of your own fucking country, then that’s fine. You can. You can be just as stupid and small minded as republicans are. THE PROBLEM HERE is that liberals are the ones who claim to be the educated party. The just party. The party of equality and diversity. But the fact that you see Texas as this strange new frontier with a lifestyle so bizarre that you can’t even fathom it…. that proves that you’re not the educated party filled with open-minded individuals. It shows you’re a bunch of fucking idiots who are no better than Republicans who look at New York and Los Angeles with complete blankness. So get off your high horse please.

 

Quote #4

“You know it’s wrong when someone sees a white baby with a non-white mother pushing the stroller, and they assume it’s the baby’s nanny. It’s totally internalized racism!” 

Gwen Stefani Is A Hot Mama in Harem Pants!

Another HUGE problem with liberals. Creating enemies out of everyone because you love stroking your own cocks at the very idea that you’re better than others.

Is it wrong that someone would assume a non-white mother could have a white baby? Sure. It’s ignorance, it’s a lack of knowledge of the world, it’s stupidity. It can be a lot of things. But by slapping the term RACIST on someone implies that there is a malicious intent on their part. It implies that they’re actively judging the mother BECAUSE OF HER SKIN COLOR.

But here’s another possibility: I used to work in a Pinkberry in Brentwood. The rich area of Los Angeles. Do you know how many hispanic nannies came in every single day with white woman’s babies? Sometimes, the rich white women would come in with the nanny! The mother would literally make the nanny push the pram! So, is it possible that someone is used to associating a non-white woman pushing a white baby in stroller as a nanny? YES ABSOLUTELY. But that isn’t racism. That isn’t the same as a person being like, “THAT WOMAN IS NON WHITE, SO SURELY SHE COULDN’T POSSIBLY BE A MOTHER! SHE MUST BE A NANNY!”

You’re confusing ignorance with hatred. And when you call ignorant people hateful people, then guess what, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO WIN THEM OVER. Its another great example of liberals shooting themselves in the foot and pushing others away, Purely because they’re so obsessed with feeling superior to others.

 

Ok, I need to get back to work now. I just had to rant otherwise my brain would have exploded.

AMERICA, YOU ARE JUST LIKE MY HIGH SCHOOL

high

In my last post, I was in a weird mood. I was pretty depressed.  In fact, the last two weeks I’ve been really down. The thoughts of depression and anxiety were nagging at me: You’ll never be a writer. You have no talent. You’ll always be alone. You are the problem, it’s always you. you, you, you! 

And then people were killed at Kroger.

And then a bunch of bombs were mailed to people all over America.

And then a synagogue was shot up.

    People, look. I don’t care what your political party is. The Trump administration is a disaster, and it’s ruining our country. The hateful rhetoric coming out of that man’s mouth (and those in his administration) is fueling the fires for the already hateful amongst us.

And to make matters worse, his followers are completely separated from reality and therefore are putty in his hands. As a Kathy Griffin fan, I felt compelled to write on Donald Trump’s Facebook page that he and his family spent an entire week destroying her; Calling her disgusting and evil. They did everything they could to ruin her career. She was put on a no-fly list, and had to take part in a federal investigation that accused her of actually plotting to assassinate Trump.

And yet, when bombs were sent out.

Actual Bombs…

cnn

The Trumps were oddly silent. A few comments here and there. Trump, you could tell, was forced to say it was wrong, and he said with the conviction of a wet mop. And then hours later he went back to blaming the media for all of this.

So, I felt like posting on his Facebook page, reminding him that he spent more time talking shit about Kathy Griffin than he did about 12 bombs being mailed out that could have taken multiple lives.

Yes. Ladies and Gentlemen, your President.   

I was immediately bombarded with tons of responses from Trump supporters informing me that the bombs were clearly a liberal conspiracy. Planted by Democrats to garner sympathy and persuade the “libtards” and “snowflakes” to hate Trump. 

First off, why? Wouldn’t Libtards already hate Trump? Where is the logic in this?

Apparently, to Trump supporters,  liberals are jealous of Trump. Trump does so many amazing and wonderful things that liberals are lost in jealousy and are determined to hate him no matter what.

But then, wait what?!?

bomb

It turns out that the bombs weren’t actually sent out by the Democratic party?

…wow, big shock (cough).

And of course, the responses on my Facebook post went dead silent.

So I probed a little further, and responded asking anyone if they cared to share with me how they felt now that they learned it wasn’t a liberal conspiracy.

more silence.

But within a few hours, Trump supporters were once again vocal around the country, hailing Trump and saying all of this was the fault of someone else, anyone else. Lost in delusion.

And that’s America. This is our country. The place we have to live. The place that has gone completely insane. 

And I think this is where a lot of my recent depression and anxiety is coming from. Part of me honestly feels like there’s no hope for this country, or for a future life here. I hate Republicans for how insane their greed has made them. I hate Democrats for not standing up to them more. I hate that it feels like the bullies are somehow on top. We have coyotes running the henhouse, and we all know that can’t be good. 

And that’s when it hit me: THIS IS LIKE HIGH SCHOOL. 

This is why I’m stuck constantly looking back at life in Ohio…because this country is running like a giant recreation of my high school experience. The bad are rewarded and get to live happily in their delusions. Nobody holds them accountable.

In high school, it was just accepted that because I was gay, I was bad. It was my fault, I was the problem, I brought this all upon my self.

And now, it’s just generally accepted that Trump and Republicans are in power, will say insane things, and then we just let them. Even as a synagogue is shot up, bombs sent, a car runs over a protester in Virginia, people are stabbed to death in Portland by a racist, and a black church is set on fire an has the words VOTE TRUMP written on it.

Listen bitches, I’ve been here before.

cunts

 

I’ve dealt with these shitty little twats my whole life. Growing up in the Rust Belt has given me firsthand experience in what the rest of America is now experiencing. And this one thing that I need to remember, and that I want to share with all of you as well:

They didn’t take me down back then, so they’re not going to take me down now.

 

I waited tables all throughout high school in my crappy Ohio town so I’d be able to escape and go someplace better. I worked and worked and worked and managed to move to LA for college. I’ve been able to live and work in Australia, New Zealand, and China. I’ve overcome fucking agoraphobia.

I aint gonna let some uneducated greedy racist white trash piece of shit make me feel like this country doesn’t belong to me.

Oh honey….hellz to da No you aint!

honey

 

Today, I’m re-vowing the same things I did when I was fifteen. Back when I was in my bedroom, friendless, watching the movies that inspired me to go see the world:

“I will not let these people take me down. I will not let them make me feel bad. I will not let them force me to give up. I will not give them what they want. 

I’m going to live my fucking life and be successful and happy because I’m fucking allowed to.”

Eye to the Sky.

The Internet Has Gotten Meaner

So, question for everyone out there… is anyone else noticing that Americans are just fucking insane these days? I started this blog in what, 2013 or something? And never did I have a problem with crazy people harassing me.  In fact, I used to have a rule where I would allow and like any comment on my blog, even if it was saying I was full of shit. Because I believe that it’s important to hear multiple opinions.

But ever since we entered the Trump era, things have changed. They’ve gotten progressively worse actually. Now, it’s become a regular occasion to log-on and have multiple comments telling me that I’m a shitty person.

 

I just got back from China where I had an internship all summer. In China they have the “Great Firewall” so I haven’t been able to check WordPress until today. Logging on and looking at the comments and stuff from the past few months, there were multiple insane,  enraged, hateful comments.  And for what?  If anyone has read this blog, it’s me talking about depression, anxiety and how I’m an outcast.  What about that is enough to send people into a spiral of rage?   I’m reminded of the Dixie Chicks song Not Read To Make Nice where she says,

“And how in the world
Can the words that I said
Send somebody so over the edge
That they’d write me a letter
Saying that I better
Shut up and sing
Or my life will be over?”

 

And granted, I have written an Anti-Trump post:

Being INFJ During The Trump Era

and yes, a majority of the hatred is aimed at this post. Where I’m told daily that I’m not a patriot, or a Christian, or a good person, or intelligent, and so on.

But still…. people… my blog has like 300 followers. I’m really not worth targeting with giant 20-paragraph long comments that have no plot or coherent message. Can’t you go find something better to do with yourselves?  For example, perhaps you could go learn to be the good Christians you claim to be? I don’t know… just an idea.  

 

Anyways, I guess my point is this:  my post never calls anyone out by name (Except Trump one time…but fuck that guy) so it really isn’t hurting anyone, is it? In fact, my blog doesn’t really go against anyone in general, so I’m really confused by the recent wave of online anger that been brewing the past year or two.   Let’s all try to regain our humanity a little bit? You’re more than welcome to disagree with me and tell me why you disagree. And I’ll like your comment, respond to it, and post it too!  But when the best thing you can tell me is that I’m a stupid fake who is evil…. and then can’t even provide me with examples… then there’s a problem.

Oh, and before I go….

America, It’s Time To Leave Kathy Griffin Alone

kat

Dear America,

You have bought right into the relentless, manipulative, and hateful zeitgeist of present-day America.  And I’m sorry to tell all of you, but it pisses me the fuck off that you’re that stupid.

 

So what is this image that has shocked, horrified, and nauseated America?  It’s been called vile, disgusting, and many say it has apparently “crossed the line”.    So here it is:

kat1

Yes people, that’s right.  A cheap Halloween mask and corn syrup.  This is apparently what has horrified all of you?

 

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?

 

Are you people 10 years old?   If these kinds of cheap theatrics terrify you then how do you sit through any PG-13 movie these days without hopping on twitter to talk about how realistic and vile it was?

Now I know what you’re all saying: some kind of “blah blah blah but it’s about our President…” or “It was a call to assassinate Trump” or whatever cheap excuse you people have.

But we all know that isn’t true.  You saw that it was trending in the media to bash Kathy Griffin, so you all did it so your feed could trend too.   Donald Trump is the one always bitching about a “witch hunt” and congrats America, he started one and you all bought into it.  You focused your hatred of the world into one woman for no reason other than some mild form of mass hysteria.

And where is everyone now?  Hmmmm?  All you people who were so concerned that this image was a call to violence…suddenly, now that Kathy Griffin has held a press conference stating that she is getting detailed, in-depth death threats…  Suddenly Twitter has gone silent.  It seems America doesn’t seem so outraged by violence 3 days later.

And furthermore America, 2 main point here:

kat3

First.  Art is art.  Free speech is free speech.  And artists are artists.   What this was by Trump wasn’t a sudden ideological stance on violence and gore.  He was pissed that it was an image of him.  And then a message was sent to the world through him and conservative media:  Don’t fuck with Trump or we will tear you to shreds

And somehow the liberal media jumped on the bandwagon as well.  CNN, Anderson Cooper, Huffington Post, New York Post, Chelsea Clinton.  Everyone seemingly JUST HAD TO MAKE THEIR VOICE HEARD that they condoned violence…and they all used Kathy Griffin as the punching bag to convey this message, which obviously only made the Trump team oh-too-happy.

Silencing people who make offensive art against our current administration will not make this country better or more peaceful.  What it will do however, is spread a message not dissent against the way things are.   We are teaching people to be silent and not stand up against an administration that NEEDS TO BE STOOD UP TO.

 

Secondly, let’s talk about Trump and conservatives.

kat5

Does anyone remember when a black church in the south was set on fire and the words “VOTE TRUMP” was spray painted on it?   Were all of you just at work that day? Were you all too busy to tweet up a storm about that?  I mean if were going to talk about a vile and disgusting act…

 

Or how about the 2 FUCKING MURDERS THAT HAPPENED IN PORTLAND LAST WEEK?

Kathy Griffin was a more worthy target to bash?  Are you people insane?

kat6.jpg

 

 

Or how about the hate crime where a man ran his truck over someone and killed him because of his race?  This news story went largely under the radar because it happened so soon after the Portland murders

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/young-father-killed-truck-driver-hate-crime-article-1.3206515

 

Or how about the stabbing in Maryland that happened recently?

kat9

The white man on the right, who belonged to a white supremacist group on facebook somehow believes he was superior to the man on the left because of his race.   WHERE WERE YOU TWITTER TROLLS THEN?

 

Point is, the Kathy Griffin scandal blew up because conservatives are crazy and are DESPERATE to believe that they are oppressed by liberals.  They are angry and uneducated and suffer from a severe case of cognitive dissonance.  If Trump and Fox News says there is literally anything to be outraged about, conservatives will devote their time to being outraged to it.  They are the most desperate of sheep.

 

And on that note… are any of you paying attention to the Trump administration?  Are you watching as they are removing funding for the sciences, national parks, healthcare, education, women’s rights…well civil rights off all kinds, and the insane level of hate he inspires in our country?    If you all want to take a moral high ground and be raging about something realize where the anger should go…

 

Get your head in the game people,
