ct2015 :  Sorry, I read it as an accusation/assumption.  That was my mistake.  I agree that there has been way too much nastiness, condescending behavior, etc, but I feel like that is a direct correlation to how a lot of our politicans (both sides) act.

i want everyone to do me a favor..

have you been sexually assaulted? harassed?

been bullied? teased?

raped? said no and it meant nothing to someone? 

told you aren’t as worthy as a woman as a man is?

hate that you may not have a say with your own body in regards to sexual reproduction?

have you been discriminated or disrespected due to your race or your weight? 

have you struggled with finances and been turned away for help? 

NOW. imagine the face of that person or people that did those things. imagine them in charge of your country, having a powerful say in all matters that touch on your daily life, commanding your military … 

How the fuck could anyone vote for that?

I don’t understand where the empathy has gone. I’m Hispanic but I was born here. Raised here. Proud to be from here but that doesn’t stop be from feeling heartbroken about the results. Do you know what illegal immigrant and a legal immigrant look like from the outside? The same. Does that mean I should be subject to people asking me my status because of the color of my skin? When our now President-Elect says that Mexico isn’t sending our finest, should I exhume my grandparents from their graves and tell them that giving up their successful careers to come build a better life here, starting from the bottom and working their way up, was a complete waste of time? Should I trivialize their sacrifice? Should I tell my dad who’s given up everything for his children, “Sorry, pops. You’re just not the best. Head back on to Mexico and leave America for the real Americans?” 

No. Because that would be ridiculous. Regardless of anything, there is no justification for stating or inciting rhetoric that is so hateful and angry. I don’t care what individual supports say. We’re adults, we can live with it. What I mind is when the person who is in charge, the person who is supposed to be our representative, speaks that way. 

For the past 8 years, I’ve heard near-constant complaining from the anti-Obama camp and you know what, it’s their right to do that. But to hear those same people ridicule Clinton supports for the same thing is almost too hypocritical to bear.
