Owning Our Shit (Profanity)

Im about to piss yall off. I might even lose some friends because of this. If youre too much of a (grab em by the) pussy to handle it or tired of angry rants, maybe you should stop reading now because Im going in on all of us. Its been a week since the election and Ive had some time to weep, rage, drink a bottle of wine, gather my thoughts, eat lots of carbs, weep again and drink two more bottles of wine, but still I have not yet been able to come to peace with the worst thing that has happened to this country since they made a standalone movie for Catwoman. But maybe bitching to you, my friends, my fellow progressives, may help bring some solace and help us understand where we went wrong so we can come together and kumbaya or whatever.

Ive got one major thing to say to you. HILLARY CLINTON DID NOT FAIL US, WE FAILED HILLARY CLINTON. Now I know, I know, she won the popular vote by almost two million votes, and I know that a lot of you were a part of that so yay go ahead and pat yourselves on the back. You done? Okay. You say she was flawed? Yall motherfuckers didnt DESERVE the candidate you got, and every day I watched as progressives posted on Facebook about how much they hated corrupt Clinton, talked about how imperfect she was as a candidate, posted articles that were flat out lies, or wrote things like #ImWithHerIGuess. Your enthusiasm for the former First Lady, Senator of New York, Secretary of State and first ever possible female President was shameful when you compare it to the enthusiasm the other side had for their flawed (racist homophobic tax evading possible rapist who has to make his undocumented Mexican maids wash the orange out of his bedsheets every fucking morning) candidate. If you would have just swallowed your pride and given Hillary half of the love you gave Obama, then we might not have woken up on November 9th worrying about families being torn apart, marriage licenses being taken way, guns getting into the wrong hands and women having to stay pregnant after getting raped. Does that sound too harsh? Too bad! This reality show is now our reality and we need to accept it and own our shit. We stepped in it and now its going to take at least four years to clean it off.

1. Is there anyone or anything left that hasn't been blamed for the impressive failure??

 

I mean, other than HRC and Co., of course? NONE of this is their fault, as we must all certainly believe.

4. I guess you haven't looked in on the DU 2016 Postmortem forum, lately.

Trust me, there's no shortage of Hillary-trashing over there. Lots of Bernie supporters, pretending to offer constructive criticism....

2. Excellent rant ...

but I don't agree with it. Not 100%. There were many factors that led to the loss.

3. Has it occurred to you that Hillary did not actually lose.

I do not believe for one moment, that a candidate polling to win in every respectable poll in the country, lost to a hated bigot like trump. I hope the public will soon start demanding a serious look at the possibility that the election was rigged. I for one, think that is a real possibility.
