Hatred in our Ranks: Why Lie About It?

Stream of consciousness ahead!

I hope that all my readers can benefit from this post, but it is primarily geared towards conservatives and Trump supporters. Let’s open our eyes and be honest here.

The left has its fair share of extremists, clowns, bigots, and violent and destructive folks. But I’m focusing on conservatives here because they are the latest people to piss on my Facebook. And they have been pissing furiously.

The conservative Republican platform, even in its mainstream form, enables and panders to bigotry. The hard right Tea Party form even more so. Get real. And please don’t tell me you don’t see it (how could you not?) Or that you’re not like that. Whether you yourself are like that or not…you tolerate it.

I’m an immigration reformist and supporter of English as the official language of the US. I bring this up because these issues were motivators for a lot of Trump voters to show up at the polls. Once upon a time, I would have been one of them.

So what’s the big deal? I only want economic security, rule of law, and for everyone to be able to talk to each other. I want to control our budget and defend against security threats. What’s so bad about that?

Nothing. And that’s exactly the problem.

Over the years, I’ve become a big believer in the idea that, if the shoe fits, wear it. If it doesn’t, give it back to the sender and be done with it. I’ve been accused of generalizing and not realizing that “not all xyzs are like that.” I’ve told people that “we’re not all like that.” It’s a discussion that goes exactly nowhere. Because it’s not about people and never was. It’s about groups, ideas, culture, and power. More importantly, it’s about how these forces are used and abused to maintain a status quo that benefits the few. The ideas and culture themselves are neutral but how they are marshalled in politics and relations is what is destructive. Yet we use the face value neutrality to avoid facing the consequences of our ideas.

I’ve learned that if I’m really “not one of those people,” I should prove it in my conduct, instead of whining about it when I’m called on it. Anyone who knows me knows what I’m about and I don’t fear people’s accusations. Most people don’t seem to agree. When they show their prejudice in public and someone calls them on it…they complain that they’re not like that and to stop generalizing.

Yet what do we spend 99.99% of our time doing? Promoting our ideas without critical examinaion, believing whatever news sources cater to our beliefs, and painting outrselves as victims of “the other.” When we are held to account, we cry “Not all of us! We’re individual!” When we perceive that we are victimized, it’s a huge cultural force that must be resisted by us brave warriors. I’m sick of it.

How can we deny racism in our ranks when, in the 1920s, the KKK had a membership of 4 million over the issue of…immigration? When white supremacist groups use immigration as a recruiting tool to this day? When people have no problem leaving comments in public, mainstream online forums referring to Muslims as goat fuckers and relishing the graphic torture and murder of Muslims? When people commit hate crimes as a result of reading conservative nationalistic rhetoric? When even seemingly mainstream conservatives are openly supported by radicalists such as David Duke and no one says anything? When people criticize their opponents not with facts, logic, or common courtesy, but with the most vile, racialized, sexist, prejudiced invective imaginable, with a few references to key issues such as abortion or taxation as an afterthought? When people boast publicly about how great it would be to beat up protestors, shoot Communists, put sodomites in jail, deport legal American citizens, or prevent them from voting, if they don’t share conservative views? Don’t tell me they are joking either, because these comments are constant. It’s not an addendum to mainstream commentary…it IS mainstream commentary. And nothing about the context or the way these comments are written is remotely suggestive of a joke.

How can you not see that? How can you not see how people find that threatening? More importantly, how can you claim that you’re not prejudiced and yet dismiss the very real implications and consequences of your ideas, blame the victims, accuse them of faking, or minimize the jumbo kracken in the room by saying that it’s just a few extremists?

Here’s a hint: A man, a known con man and overall depraved dirt bag in just about every way imaginable, won the highest office in the most powerful country on Earth campaigning on these very sentiments and pandering to these very “extremists.” When you reach that milestone…you’re not extremist. You’re mainstream. A man like Trump could never get this far if his ideas and followers were truly as extremist as you say.

But please, don’t say anything about that unless you’re called on it. You totally ignore this message unless someone accuses you of being a bigot…then it’s damage control. We’re not all like that. You’re attacking me. I thought liberals were tolerant? Look at all the Black Lives Matter people beating up Trump supporters! Yeah, a few dozen, maybe a few hundred, hate crimes were inspired by my candidate but two or three were revealed to be fakes so…so there!

I didn’t SAY that I hated Jews. I just don’t believe those Jews who say Trump supporters burned a swastika on their lawn. I didn’t SAY I hated Muslims. I just support someone that hates Muslims, wants them banned from the US. I don’t hate the poor or blame them for their situation …I just don’t care enough about them to give them fair wages or job protections…and if they hate it, they need to take responsibility and go to school. But I’m not blaming them, okay?

I’m sick of it. And I’m not letting you get away with it. I can’t make you see reason, I can’t make you have empathy, I can’t make you do or be anything…but I can make myself accountable for fighting lies with truth. I can make it a point to challenge prejudice and cowardice and apathy when I see it. And mark my words that as long as I am alive and you have contact with me, I will show you what kind of person you are every day for the rest of your life.

Sexism, Healthism, Paganism: A Review of Ellen Dugan’s Practical Protection Magick

Disclosure: I am not Wiccan, in case that was unclear to anyone. I read literature from all faith traditions for academic, theological, self-help, or entertainment purposes. So that may cloud my judgment on this, but know that I’m talking from a place of knowledge and respect for other traditions. 

It started when a relative got me a book by Ellen Dugan, well-known neo-pagan author, also known as the garden witch. I read it and really enjoyed it. I learned she had a book on protection magic, a topic I happen to love, and I decided to buy a copy of her book Practical Protection Magic. 

Overall, I was happy with the purchase. There are many reasons to read this book and learn from it…correspondences, spells, discerning psychic abilities, easy to read, humorous, etc. And that’s not exhaustive. Please don’t take this review as an admonition against reading the book for yourself. 

However, the more I read about Wicca, neo-paganism, and New Age philosophy, the more I start to see the same patterns of prejudice that exist in all faith communities. Today, I want to focus on healthism and sexism in pagan literature and use this book as an illustration of negative things I’m seeing. 

The good news is that the sexism and healthism are concentrated in one chapter. The bad news is that it makes that one chapter nearly unbearable to read.

It’s Chapter Five on the element of fire. The central premise of the book is that you can use the four natural elements to increase the power of your magic and promote healing and protection. And ED chose to associate fire with…physical fitness.

Oh, boy. 

ED isn’t the first person to invoke health in discussions of spirituality, and she certainly won’t be the last, especially whereas New Age philosophers tend to believe that like attracts like and in the mind-body connection. But when it’s concentrated in one place in a tone that couldn’t be more condescending if it tried, it deserves its own review, just for this one chapter.

The first rule of healthism is that if you’re too fat or not physically fit enough, it’s your fault. Furthermore, the first rule of pagan healthism is that lazy, fat people equal wimpy witches. And ED wastes no time reminding us. She tells us that we should lay off the sugar and junk food, walk more, eat more veggies, drink more water, insert healthist trope here. No! Way! So! Original! And it gets better. Being unfit makes your aura dull and hence your spells aren’t as powerful. (What’s worse, that ED believes that shit or that she was able to make money peddling it to thousands of other people that believe that shit? I mean, talk about wooooo!)

I accept that there is a mind-body connection, and that like can, indeed, attract like. I understand that all belief systems have an element of woo. But a so-called healthy lifestyle boosting your aura and magic and draining negativity doesn’t just push the boundaries of plausibility, but obliterates them.

But that’s okay, because ED can prove that she’s right. Now that she has made a complete! Lifestyle! Change!  She feels better, and now her magic is so much better. Of course, there’s no chance of self-fulfilling prophecy or confirmation bias. It must be all that law of attraction stuff. 

She tells a story that was obviously intended to be funny, but was instead tacky and insulting and gave me the impression she laughs at her own jokes. After six months of transformation, she sees a skinny woman eating junk food (apparently she is still skinny despite eating like the proverbial fat kid…the irony…) She talks about a sensation that is all too familiar to chronic dieters…craving. She joked about how she has to remind herself that she is sane! And she will! Not! Kill someone to eat her chocolate. Ah, yes, fat, dieting, menstrual or menopausal women eating chocolate and killing people to get their hands on it. Hurr hurr!

Thankfully, she has a new addiction…cutesy pink workout clothes with slogans like Strong. Beautiful. Me! Because that’s what makes women want to work out…being sexy, apparently. Then she repeats platitudes that are all too familiar to fat acceptance advocates, because we said them first before they were repurposed by diet culture. Such as the idea that being strong or beautiful isn’t about big muscles or the size of a garment, but about confidence. This, of course, after spending a chapter’s worth of keystrokes equating fat and “unfit” with being weak and unhealthy, being a lousy practitioner, and complaining about how she looks in pictures. Or about how women who want to have fun should do belly dancing because it’s good for your midsection. Yeah, okay. How dumb do you think I am?

Like all stereotypical fat ladies, she eats for comfort but now that she has addressed the root of her issues (hysteria?) she doesn’t eat emotionally anymore (because women are so emotional!) Clearly, every fat person has exactly this problem and that’s why they’re fat. 

Another trope I saw, right at the beginning, is the most subtle but just as damaging and offensive. She “joked” that she started losing weight when she saw pictures of herself after an event and had to ask what was wrong with her camera. In other words, fatties are delusional and don’t know they’re fat. Where have we heard that? Every joke about fat women ever? So-called studies that shit fit over the alleged fat masses who don’t know they’re obese? I would think so. 

There is also a section on body language that, while not healthist, is covertly sexist. It’s the kind of advice you get when going on job interviews for corporate America…especially if you’re female. Smile! Shoulders back! Eye contact! Walk with confidence/grace! No crossing your arms! The idea that body language can be a legitimate expression of emotion, personality, or a cultural trait, especially with regard to eye contact and other “direct” body language is not considered. And I honestly doubt that changing your body language makes a meaningful difference in the spiritual realm or in the eyes of those that really mean you harm. In fact, it may make you more visible and hence a target. An insecure or otherwise resentful person might not like your confidence and target you for that reason. Maybe you’re actually being overconfident and inviting blowback. Why not? It’s just as plausible as the idea that standing up straight and smiling will deflect the supernatural powers of evil. Maybe, if women are feeling targeted, they *should* be defensive. They *shouldn’t* smile. They shouldn’t saunter like they closed a deal in the boardroom or like they were a case study in “How to Win Friends and Influence People.” Maybe they should cut the crap and be supported in doing so. I have a feeling she wouldn’t be giving this advice if she were a man writing explicitly for men. But what do I know?

There you have it. My pet peeve of the week. Read, but exercise caution. Fat hatred and healthism are pervasive and they need to be exposed and challenged if we are going to make progress. 

The Anti-Healthist Guide to Hitting the Gym

Yes, that’s right. Anti-healthist people go to gyms. I’m one of them. I also do physical activities outside the gym that I like. 

Should you? 

Maybe. This multi-step series should help you decide. 

First question is to determine: Is it okay to go to a place like that? 

Hold the phone…did I really just ask that? Believe it or not, yes, I did.

Lots of articles stress all the different ways to motivate us to go to the gym or a morning jog: listen to music, walk the dog, bring a friend, set up a routine, add your suggestion here. All good ideas except…they don’t start at the right place.

What people don’t understand is that if you’re fat, disabled, unathletic, anti-healthist, or just don’t fit the gym rat stereotype…there is a more fundamental attitude at work. A lot of us feel, subconsciously,that we don’t belong there and have no right to be there. We feel like we’re in the way, or that we’re bothering staff when we ask for assistance. We feel like we’re being judged. We feel like it won’t do any good, that we’ve been “too fat” or “physically unfit” our whole lives and that will never change. We’re afraid we just won’t be able to do the tasks, use the machines, follow the instructions or follow through with our work out time. We may be afraid we will get injured or something along those lines. If you are very fat, or disabled in some way, concerns about injury or not being able to use equipment may be a very real accessibility obstacle. Some of us, particularly the anti-healthist set, may have a defiant, comtrarian attitude straight out of an 80s high school cult classic. We’re not the vain, stick thin bimbos or the meat headed jocks. We don’t need no stinkin’ gym time! 

Those attitudes are more common than people realize and they are more hindering than people know. That’s why I start with challenging these attitudes. 

First step within a step: Remember that gyms are a public place and a service provided to paying customers. It’s not an elite country club. You pay the fee? You have a right to be there.

Second step: This is not gym class where you wait to be picked last and are forced to play games you suck at and have the rest of the team resent you. This also isn’t physical fitness testing where government entities are demanding that you do the impossible, overcome your genetic limitations and ace a bogus exam. When you’re at the gym, there are no standards but your own and you can spend as much time as you want doing what you want. You can spend an hour and a half doing yoga or 15 minutes walking on a treadmill. It’s your time and there are no grades. And unlike school, you don’t need to ask permission to take a break, use the bathroom, listen to music, or watch TV. Lots of gyms have TVs. Turn on closed caption, put on your earbuds, and work. Even if you have to take breaks every five minutes. At least you’re there and you’re doing it. Plus, as you get better at this routine…you may find you don’t need as many breaks. But you’ll never get to that milestone if you don’t persist, breaks and all. 

Step three: Don’t worry about the people. The staff will be relieved to talk to someone and make their shift go by faster doing something other than staring at the clock. As for other patrons…most people in general aren’t thinking about you as much as you might think. They’re wrapped up in their own thing, and even if they wanted to spoil for a fight, they don’t want to get kicked out. So take comfort in that. And take comfort in two other things: they might have a battle (say, exercise addiction) that you don’t know about. They might secretly be inspired by you. They might be really entertained by that shirt that says, “I hate running” or “Exercise? I thought you said extra fries!” Or perhaps “Bacon is a vegetable.” If they really are haters, the best revenge anyway is to force your fat and/or skinny unfit ass in their space. Mark your territory as this is a public place and…wait for it…it’s yours as much as it is theirs! 

Most people aren’t haters though. And you’re not obligated to hang out with them, even if they are.

And yes, feel free to have extra fries…before or after the workout. I don’t care. Because the anti-healthist fitness motto is this: Health isn’t a destination but a mode of travel…and in the end, all roads lead to your healthy, fit Rome destination, even if this healthy, fit Rome place has lots of neighborhoods that all look different from each other. Just make sure you’re on one of those roads. 

See you at the gym! Extra fries to follow! 

What happens when you oppress the poor libfems…

In my last post, I gave a brief portrait of what trolling looks like when it comes my way, and how the rules of civility tend to punish activists in favor of trolls. I want to revisit last night’s Facebook incident because it’s still going on. This Facebook page is a well-known radical feminist forum, supposedly, and guess what? I have had dozens of comments dogpiling me, insulting me, putting words in my mouth and basically telling me to shut up.

My offense? Being too aggressive with people of privilege and not being sufficiently inclusive of men. That’s right. Our radfem hub has been infiltrated by libfems. As I mentioned in my last post, my comment is the most liked. Even now, I keep getting likes. So the message is being heard. Unfortunately, only one of my supporters defended me in the comments. The rest were intimidated into silence and watched as I was pilloried.

This was the man -hating, exclusionary, aggressive, jealous, woman shaming comment that started all this:

“With all respect to Emma Watson, I’m not interested in being lectured on feminism by a woman of tremendous economic privilege who makes a large chunk of her fortune catering to the male gaze. If she has found a cause she cares about and manages to do good, that’s commendable. But playing a somewhat feminist fantasy character as a teenager does not make you an expert on feminism and I don’t need feminism explained to me. Thank you.”
Shame on me, obviously. Why, it just might be worse than the SCUM Manifesto. 

Puhleeze.

After this comment, I was told I was trashing Emma’s success, that I was jealous of Emma, that I was a lesbian with hip dysplasia (still can’t figure that one out), was told I was woman-hating, asked for my lady card, and had words put in my mouth and straw men erected against me. One example is that I was being bizarre and illogical for accusing the Harry Potter franchise for catering to the male gaze, which is not what I said at all. I was even told that I was holding women’s rights back, that I need to get a grip and realize that men can be feminists too. My attackers then proceed to read off a list of their personal Nigels that prove how awesome men are. I was even told to stop with the aggression.

That’s right. Feminist was told by other feminists to stop being so angry! Of course! Never heard that before! So original! So effective! Why, that’s how all social justice movements get ahead, by being nice all the time! Tell that to the suffragettes, I think they might have appreciated knowing that if they had just been nicer, they might have avoided all that force feeding and jail and stuff. 

Now that I have tried, and failed, to have an intelligent discussion on Facebook, I want to add a few words I didn’t dare say in that Facebook post. 

I resent celebrity activism, especially celebrity feminism. I resent the cult of the celebrity in our culture. I feel that rather than ooh and ahh over a handful of rich and famous people with spare time and a Twitter account, ordinary people took action on their own behalf. I resent the fact that women like Hillary Clinton with her character, her qualifications, her record of public service are ignored, insulted, slandered, and threatened, and so irrationally hated that millions of people voted for the next Hitler to avoid having her as a leader. Meanwhile women like  Emma Watson, with no such qualifications, are given the limelight and are well received in large part because they are young, conventionally attractive and happen to be famous. I doubt Emma Watson would have received her current distinction otherwise. Even if she had the qualifications, which she doesn’t, it’s unlikely she would have been noticed if she were,say, a middle age butch lesbian. 

Of course there is nothing wrong with Emma genuinely caring, wanting to educate herself, and use her clout to do good. But real, lasting change doesn’t happen as a result of a few high-profile figures. Name one movement that won their battles by employing a handful of movie stars. It doesn’t happen that way. It happens when groups of committed, ordinary people stand up to power or, if they have it, give up their power by, for example, going to jail, taking real risks. 

Also, if you are going to employ a figurehead for a cause, putting someone like Emma Watson is an insult, however well intentioned she may be. The message being sent is that women’s issues aren’t serious enough to warrant a qualified candidate to represent them. A popular 20-something actress will do, especially if she’s cute. I happen to believe that women deserve an advocate that actually a) bears some resemblance to them and how they live, which EW doesn’t and B) has real qualifications for a UN position or any high profile position that affects public policy and people’s lives. 

By the way, that was another attack I was subjected to, that I had no right to criticize Emma’s economic privilege because she worked hard for her success. (Oh, yes, how tired, abused, and downtrodden a life it must be to be paid millions of dollars to play dress up. Yeah, no.) But I digress. 

Lastly, I expect people advocating for me, or for the common good, in public to be accountable, take criticism, and make a reasonable effort to live by their principles. It’s dandy for EW to criticize the sexualization of young girls and to tell her own story of being objectified in this way. But it rings hollow from someone who makes big bucks posing for fashion magazines and who, generally, goes out of her way to perform constructed femininity in her everyday life. Her choice? Yes. A choice that I am obligated to take seriously? Nope.

I have decided not to read any more comments on that Facebook post, not to reply to anything, or spend any more time on that page. With that, I give you my closing thoughts, my last comment on that page:

“She works as a model. She fits conventional ideas of what feminine is. That’s catering to the male gaze. Also, I commended Emma Watson in my comment for trying. And that seems to get ignored. As for aggression…sorry, social movements don’t make progress by, again, going out of our way to not alienate or not be aggressive. What people don’t realize is that to those who are truly opposed to us, the only stance that’s non-alienating and non-aggressive enough to be considered is acquiescence. If not acquiescing in my totally level-headed comments constitutes “aggression,” then so be it. Don’t like it? Don’t read my comments. I’m not in the business of watering down feminist discussion to meaninglessness to make people feel good. Furthermore, I feel that women spend too much time defending their proverbial Nigels than actually serving women. As for my comments about Harry Potter, I didn’t say the Harry Potter franchise catered to the male gaze, nor did I trash her success. I was making the point that being a strong female character in a youth series doesn’t make you an expert on feminism. Tell me what substantive experience Emma Watson has in work or in life that helps women at large? None that I can see other than fame and a profession that places style over substance. I think it would behoove you all to learn to read and to have the integrity to respond to what I actually said instead of putting words in my mouth.”
Waiting to be banned in three…two…one…

Fake Allies: Time to Play Dirty!

I just want to put my head in my hands.

I value civility. I value extending the olive branch and hearing different ideas. But I also value being blunt, being effective, setting boundaries, breaking out of the echo chamber. Well, guess what? I’m just about out of olive branches. I’m about ready to play dirty or not at all.

The first time I tried playing dirty in defense of someone else happened a few years ago. This person banned me because I was building straw men and attacking the people who were spamming her page, attacking her and her supporters. 

This woman, I suppose, doesn’t know what “straw man” means. It’s not a catch-all term for a personal attack. It’s the act of misrepresenting a person’s position to knock it down more easily. And pretty much by definition, it’s almost impossible to build a straw man when the building blocks being used are things that were, you know, ACTUALLY SAID…and not just said, but yelled, cursed, insulted and threatened. By people who had absolutely no business being on that page anyway. But somehow, my pointing that out constituted an attack and a straw man and I was banned. 

It’s happened to me a lot over the years. I’ve been banned from Catholic pages for stating inconvenient facts.

I’ve been relentlessly attacked on Amazon for writing a negative review of Kick Ass from a feminist perspective. As is typical of internet trolls, I was accused of being ugly, fat, and jealous of Hit Girl. 

It happened to me a few years back when I wrote about my anti-healthist beliefs. I was told that I was morally deficit, disgusting, that I was going to die of these awful diseases and that I deserved it.

It happened with Trump’s election. The same people who responded to Obama’s election by hanging black dummies and setting them on fire, who responded to prominent Jewish activists by Photoshopping images of them in ovens, who responded to the prospect of a HRC presidency by building a model of Hillary Clinton’s head on a pike…now they want us to move on, unify, grow up, heal, and stop being so mean and calling them bigots. 

And it happened to me tonight, again on Facebook, on a so-called women’s rights page. I had the nerve to criticize Emma Watson’s celebrity feminism. One woman responded by asking me for my lady card, telling me what I was enabling misogyny and that my comment was woman-hating nonsense. And that I was jealous, a consequence of poor breeding and a lesbian with hip dysplasia.

Nothing was done about this.

How much do you want to bet that of this happens again and I defend myself, I will be banned?

How long will it take for people to learn that being civil in the minds of these people is about shutting up, smiling, and allowing the hostile takeover of our spaces? When will we defend ourselves and our allies as jealously as we defend trolls and interlopers? 

Only time will tell. I’m just not sure there is enough time in all of eternity for these people to get a clue. 

Update: In spite of being trolled, my comment is by far the most “liked” on that comment thread…and the likes are climbing still. 

Immigrants, I’m Sorry…

I’m sorry. 

I didn’t vote for the monster that is our president-elect, but I considered it in the beginning. I quickly decided against that choice.  

Why did I want to vote Trump? I was inspired by Brexit. I was inspired by the rhetoric of people such as Nigel Farage. I don’t like th EU. I support isolationism and national sovereignty. I believe that illegal immigration, and unchecked legal immigration, are real and serious problems. I don’t like the dishonest rhetoric surrounding immigration. I feel that in addition to hurting Americans, our current system endangers immigrants and really only benefits big  business and big politics, who are all too eager to exploit immigrants and native/naturalized Americans.I really just want our borders and immigration laws to mean something and to be applied equitably.

This isn’t a side issue for me either, it’s something about which I am deeply passionate. I used to have no problem with any kind of immigration and a few years ago, I had a shift in perspective. I know all sides all too well.
So why not Trump, champion of “real,” working class Americans and rural folk like me?

Because Trump wasn’t a vote for sensible, legal, bipartisan reform, something that would respect civil and human rights. It was a vote for rank white nationalism, anti-Semitism, every kind of bigotry imaginable, blind hatred and controllable rage.

I am the child of immigrants. I have immigrant friends. I’ve spent my whole life believing in, and promoting, pacifism, cultural exchange, and service to vulnerable populations, including refugees, asylees and political prisoners. Trunp and his supporters don’t stand for any of those qualities and indeed demean and oppose them. 

You will never convince me that there is no room for amnesty. You will never convince me that inhumane amd indefinite detention of immigrants, including women, children, and elderly, is necessary or morally acceptable. You will never convince me that our problems are totally or even primarily the fault of immigrants. The very thought is laughable.

The least prejudiced and dangerous of these people think there should be a quota for members of certain ethnicities and religions (think Muslim registries) or to ban these populations entirely, a proposition that is entirely unAmerican.

It gets worse.

Trump openly promotes torture, warfare, and classic law-n-order police statism. How could I ever, with any conscience, with any integrity, hand over some of society’s most vulnerable people over to a monster? 

Let it be known I will not stand by as people are harassed, endangered or have their rights stripped away. I will stand with you and I will protect you. I will speak truth to would-be exploiters of principles like mine and to those who just won’t see reason. Even if it costs me relationships. 

We were made for these times. Show the world, and your maker, what you are made of. 

Immigration reform still matters very much to me. But it’s far from being my most important concern right now.

And nothing on Earth, in Heaven, or Hell could convince me to elect Trump. The devil can bargain all he wants, you could never put a price on my soul. America’s soul.

My Opinion of Your “Theories” on How We Lost

This summarizes my thoughts on the crap theories as to why we lost…when it’s really very simple. Saw in on Forensic Files, it cracked me up, and if you change some of the words and make it about the election…it’s perfect.

All the commentators blaming Hillary, the DNC, everyone but the voters…they really didn’t theorize shit.
