If you can’t find humour in it, what are you going to do?
You’re not in much of a position to do anything about it until you get to vote later in the year so might as well make some dry humour. It’s all that gets me through these times.
Because news flash, your country isn’t the only one going to pot.
Mine is leaving the EU based on bullshit reasons and racism primarily, which will set everything back generations, is dismantling the best thing it ever created (free healthcare in the form of the NHS) and is using the hole created by lack of EU law to do many of the same deregulations as the US are doing now.
Also, don’t pretend all that stuff started with trump. It was under Obama that the North Dakota pipeline was being built, Obama trialled the Muslim ban for a short period of time, to name just 2 examples. This stuff has been happening for a while.
You talk about treason, whistleblowers weren’t treated all that well under the previous administration, were they?
Trump isn’t a horrible aberration in my opinion, he is just an ugly, open, obtuse caricature of what US (especially republican) policy has been before him.
This is what happens when you consume celebrity culture and 24hour cable news to such an extent where you worship any steaming pile of shit they spout, put the rich and celebrities on such a pedestal. And have a system (the electoral college) that is such a joke of a way to elect your leader, which exemplifies this corrupt culture where now anyone known to the public eye thinks they can run for president.
Maybe need to spend less time getting on at me for drying pointing out some of this superficial nonsense and more time bringing down the EC, gerrymanderinf, etc. And also to recognise wrong, even when it is your side that perpetrates it.
Now the second bit isn’t really addressed to you, but more in general again to members of #theresistance who are as we speak rehabilitating George Bush, bill Kristol, David frum, Henry Kissinger, Louise Mensch () etc’s images, lauding them as heroes in the fight against Trump.
So you’re right, it isn’t funny at all how fucked things look for you guys.
And it’s the same for us, so I shouldn’t really be preaching to you either when the UK is also so fucked. But apart from voting all I can do is make snarky funny comments so I feel I am entitled to that.
