I don’t normally use profane language, but I think it’s appropriate in this case. The whole world has gone batshit crazy since the election was called last night. I was smart enough to deactivate my Facebook account before it turned any uglier. I’ve already heard how awful it has gotten as the day has progressed.
Yes, I am a Trump supporter. I have never burned a cross in front of anyone’s yard. I have never beaten anyone for being a homosexual. I have never sneered anyone wearing a burka.
Yet today, I am being told I’m a bigot, homophobe, and generally a horrible person (pssst… I’m really a pretty good guy).
I get the pre-election head-butting. But when the dust has settled, we are supposed to shake hands and congratulate the other side.
When did it become ok to treat each other so terribly just because your chosen candidate lost? This is worse than the Alabama-Auburn matchup each November.
I’m praying for you, America. Praying hard.
