Found on FB - likely the best post ever on FB



I listened as they called my President a Muslim.
I listened as they called him and his family a pack of monkeys.
I listened as they said he wasn't born here.
I watched as they blocked every single path to progress that they could.
I saw the pictures of him as Hitler.
I watched them shut down the government and hurt the entire nation twice.
I watched them turn their backs on every opportunity to open worthwhile dialog.
I watched them say that they would not even listen to any choice for Supreme Court no matter who the nominee was.
I listened as they openly said that they will oppose him at every turn.
I watched as they did just that.
I listened.
I watched.
I paid attention.
Now, I'm being called on to be tolerant.
To move forward.
To denounce protesters.
To "Get over it."
To accept this...
I will not.
I will do my part to make sure this great American mistake becomes the embarrassing footnote of our history that it deserves to be.
I will do this as quickly as possible every chance I get.
I will do my part to limit the damage that this man can do to my country.
I will watch his every move and point out every single mistake and misdeed in a loud and proud voice.
I will let you know in a loud voice every time this man backs away from a promise he made to them.
Them. The people who voted for him.
The ones who sold their souls and prayed for him to win.
I will do this so that they never forget.
And they will hear me.
They will see it in my eyes when I look at them.
They will hear it in my voice when I talk to them.
They will know that I know who they are.
They will know that I know what they are.
Do not call for my tolerance. I've tolerated all I can.
Now it's their turn to tolerate ridicule.
Be aware, make no mistake about it, every single thing that goes wrong in our country from this day
forward is now Trump's fault just as much as they thought it was Obama's.
I find it unreasonable for them to expect from me what they were entirely unwilling to give."

28. You did? You sure were reading my mind!

I will NOT accept OR stand by/with/for this so-called "President."

I'll be referring to him, for the next four years (or less, if he's impeached and REMOVED) as The Donald, or donald trump, or simply trump. I will not be calling him "President." For me, he's not President Anything. He lost the popular vote - by a MASSIVE amount. Not just a few thousand votes. Not even for the oft-cited 80,000 votes. It's pushing THREE MILLION. That's not small potatoes. THAT is a landslide. THERE'S the landslide. Right there.

He is NOT president. And ironically, this same guy who tried to smear the DULY-ELECTED and HONESTLY-ELECTED and LEGITIMATELY-ELECTED President, Barack Obama, and render him illegitimate - is now actually WEARING that Constitutional apostasy that applies DIRECTLY and PERSONALLY, all over his face like egg-splatter. WITH egg-splatter, to boot! No. I take that back. The boot's in his MOUTH.

We have a Russian puppet - wrap your mind around that: a RUSSIAN PUPPET - elected by a MINORITY of voters, about to get the keys to the Oval Office. The leader of one of two superpowers long identified as our ADVERSARY, VLADIMIR PUTIN, chose our next Commander-in-Chief for us. Just stop and think about that one. What do you suppose that's gonna do? How do you think that one's gonna end?

And aside from that, we have a fucking PIRATE headed into the White House. He's already established a CLEAR track-record of proof that he went for this job because of the money he could make from it. It was/is the ultimate brand. You're LITERALLY golden, with that. You're at a whole other level, with that. You have NO peers anywhere and only 44 other equals on earth and in earthly history. The opportunism, greed, wheeling-'n'-dealing, and FLAGRANT and MASSIVE in-yer-face conflict-of-interest.

This is a two-pronged attack, forcryingoutloud. From outside, and long - Putin/Russia - and from inside, by (supposedly) one of our own - the greediest, most narcissistic, most think-skinned, sociopathic, petty, juvenile, vengeful pissant I think the modern world has seen in decades. On the biggest stage in the world.

And it's stunning to see the denial out there. The absolute pig-headed refusal to see. To be outraged, at least. But, shit, even just TO SEE! Nobody wants to admit they were wrong. And nobody ADAMANTLY wants to admit they've been had. NOBODY. That's a really hard one to swallow. When you think you were right and you wanted so badly to be right. That's a hard one to face, much less accept. They won't accept responsibility for anything. From human causes of climate change onward, straight on to this now.

Deny it as they will, that doesn't change the truth, or the facts. Whether we like it or not, we have a Russian puppet poised to take over the White House next month. Elected by a minority of voters. Hand-picked by the sneaky and devious head of our sneakiest and most devious international superpower adversary. In other words, if you really wanna be brutally frank, elected by a minority of ONE.

God, or at least the Electoral College, help us!

11. I don't like how it somehow insinuates Trump:Democrats as Obama:Republicans

 

Republicans feared and hated Obama on sophistry, right-wing propaganda, and racism

None of that's justifiable. Hating Trump is justifiable. These aren't two sides of the same political coin. This is as if a piece of gum and a cigarette butt got stuck to one side of the coin.

around the time of their walkout.

29. Welcome to DU, Aimee in OKC!

Yes indeed. The guy who lied - who tried to smear and de-legitimize President Obama will HIMSELF be de-legitimized. Only in his case, it won't be a lie. It'll be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

The contrast will be stark.

I forget where I read where some creative nitpicker determined, upon research, that trump lies once every three minutes, on average.
