Welp. The 2016 presidential election was an utter disaster. In large enough numbers in key states, Americans threw a tantrum and voted for machismo, racism, and kleptocracy. I think the situation now looks worse than it did two weeks ago. We've got an abusive president-elect with a history of self-dealing and other cons who indicates that the sleaze will continue unabated and he's advised by a pack of wingnuts, climate deniers, internet trolls, and neo-nazis. Surrogates of our president-elect are on news programs floating insane ideas like a national registry of Muslims and internment camps. I'm very concerned for the safety of my Black, Latino, LGBT, immigrant, female, Muslim, and Jewish friends and family in such an abnormal political climate. Don't tell me that this is normal, that nothing has really changed, or no one is more at risk today unless you're ready for an earful. If you're a Trump voter who insists that you're not a racist or bigot, I insist that you prove it by speaking out and standing up against atrocities when the time comes.
