Well said, Dave. I'm sick of it too. You can't throw any sand toward a Jewish person simply because of this created environment of being considered an anti-semite or a holocaust denier. But anything towards Arabs is perfectly acceptable. It sickens me.
This must be what it always looks like within a society based on supremacy or a supreme race. If you're not for 'em you're aginst 'em, and it;s easy to see where I fit in their machine. It's unsettling for sure. The "punishment" for being in opposition to the power structure varies in intensity, but lets face it, we are deep within a fascist regime. It's already happened, so we've got our work cut out for us.
It seems the idea that we're more egalitarian and less "barbaric" than we were thousands of years ago is an illusion. It's the same shite in a more "modern" package - and it STINKS just as bad maybe worse because we humans should be beyond all this crap by now.
It's my nature to be an optimist, but my logic tells me it's not going to be easy to turn this around. RP winning would certainly help, but I suspect the powers that be will do everything to stop this from happening. I am hopeful but not naive. This whole mess is just sick and it's not something I'm willing to settle for. And I sure as heck won't tolerate and pay for this evil crap with my taxes. No freaking way. It is
disgusting - beyond disgusting. How the heck can we stop the insanity? It's so thick and all encompassing - and people are so blinded by the lies. I just hope there's a way to reach people before things get even worse (Hillary comes to mind as worse).
