We, operating as active members of a functioning resistance. We will remember where we were when all of this was going down. What we’re really, really going to remember is going to be the silence and appeasement of people we may have once considered “friends.”
The stuff that is going to stick with us forever is going to be our memories of people we always thought were goodly, moral people who we will always remember making excuses for their president being a Russian spy.
A lying hypocrite.
An ignorant vulgarian.
A draft-dodging coward in his wife’s combat boots.
People we once respected letting us and their forever family lineage down. By becoming that person, they earned a place in the toilet of Trump’s sub-basement flat in Hell. And, all of us have earned a very real post traumatic stress disorder that we will have to deal with the rest of our lives.
Forgive these people? If only it were that easy. Their disgusting allegiance with Donald Trump emotionally and psychologically assaulted us. It is absolutely selfish for any of them. I think their guilt is weighing on them. At least when they’re answering pollster questioning.
