1. Some of us are reading this in places...

...where we canít watch a movie clip with audio. A text summary of what youíre trying to say would be helpful.

4. I am aware

Of this fear too.
I think a large part of thier persecution will be directed at Transgendered people. At least in the beginning.Simply because we transfolk and some non binary are more easy to pick out of a crowd sometimes. Especially women. The insecure rabid right-wing white males hate us for who we are. Fascism without rigid gender roles isn't fascism.

But If trump gets his civil war bullshit, or gets 4 more years to annilate our country we all will be in danger.

I fear for my transfreinds and myself and the whole GBLT community.

5. The startling thing is that one of Trump's biggest supporters and donors

is a billionaire gay man who is in a same sex marriage. It is mind boggling how a gay person can support a candidate whose majority supporters would burn him at the first chance they get, if the rest of society didnít stop them.

I believe that a person like Peter Thiel believes that he somehow is in a different category from the gay men and women that Trump has driven out of the military and would drive out of jobs if he could. The thing is, that fool wonít get to taste the reality of who he supports until everyone that vote to protect him are overcome, then there likely will be nothing left for him or of him, because the anti-LGBTQ people that he fights so hard to get elected would then be free to take everything that he has and very likely will kill him. I just donít understand why that idiot thinks that he can stay alive in a world ruled by groups like the Proud Boys, Patriotís Prayer and the Boogaloo Bois. He freely supports the people that hate him because we fight so hard for his rights.

7. Don't forget

The rabid fundamentalists and evangelicals.. they are cultie bible thumper zealots and pay attention to voices in thier heads,and they bow down to hate filled preachers.

They think God wants them to hate gblt people and they want us dead to please thier bloodthirsty old testament jesus.

They are deluded. A hateful delusion.

8. I really don't understand people like Thiel and the Log Cabin Republicans.

It is like they look at a snarling pit bull that has blood dripping from itís mouth and are sure that it wonít kill THEM.

I am a heterosexual, Black, business oriented progressive Democrat. The business and sexual orientation means fundamentalists and republicans would have many targets ahead of me if they assume total control. The progressive Democrat part means that I likely would get walked to the gallows somewhat well ahead of Ben Carson and Clarence Thomas (although in a dystopian world, white supremacists would insure that all of us met the gallows).

I believe what is happening is that Thiel and The LCRs know that a world where they get forced underground or wiped out wonít happen, their wealth and influence will insure a safe harbor for them. But less fortunate people wonít be remotely as lucky, and this is why the calculations of Thiel and others is go enraging to me.

9. It pissed me off too

It also makes me pissed when people flippantly say they'll escape Trump's evil empire by leaving the country. They have one thing I haven't got money and a job history to prove to said country they'll be productive ..

I have no hope of doing that. I am disabled ,poor.
Trans,and cannot drive.
There are millions in the same situation as I am.

No other country would want someone like me without money or profitable skills who can't work or even drive to work.It makes me feel like shit, that I have no right to escape abuse because of capitalism.

People have this I got mine regarding this emigration topic.
I,will be forced to stay here screwn by Trump's minions if he gets his way.


I have lots of different targets on my head according to what right-wing monsters think and believe and what kind of person they hate.

But since I have no way out of here I will fight the trumpists like hell.
Because my life truly depends on it. I may not last long after I lose everything because of diabeties,but I will make that time count.

And I vote and will vote a straight Dem ticket like I always have done. Biden must win. My future life really does depend on it.

Capitalism ruins everything .

11. Although I can leave and be ok as a college educated Engineer and a business owner,

I plan to stay right here and fight the Trumpist also. If they take over society, they will have to kill me to stop me from fighting them.
