know your place

I am in flat despair

I could accept that in 2016, Donald Trump appealed to those who were sick and tired of the way things were going.  He came out of nowhere and we really didn’t know what kind of administration he would run.  I didn’t like the man and refused to support him but I could understand the populist appeal.  In the past four years, he showed us what kind of leader he was and like so many others, I thought having displayed his real colors, he would be repudiated because Americans weren’t like that.

I was wrong. 
John Pavlovitz puts it quite succinctly: />

Over 68 million people agree with Trump and want him to continue doing what he is doing:

The “coalition of restoration” is stronger than I ever dreamed it could be.  These people want me, want every kind of minority, to go back to an era when you were expected to  “know your place”, and that place is subservient,  subservient to white males, especially ones with money who make sure Wall Street is doing well.  And it isn’t just the boomers either, I could understand that to a point since we all grew up in that kind of society.   Anyone who believes in transformation and the future is dismissed as an “elitist” and a “libtard” to be derided as “woke” and taken down a peg or two until they know their place.

Tomorrow or next week, perhaps I will hope again and take up the cudgels in defense of what I believe

 But today?  I cannot function.  I am in shock that the America I thought I lived in, that I raised a family in, doesn’t actually exist….
