I cannot believe how angry I have gotten over the last election. It’s never been like this in any election in memory.
I have been throwing everyone I know who supported Trump or the Republican Party completely out of my life. That’s with some necessary exceptions. Those few, along with a few more or less progressive Trumpsters who have been kind and friendly to me, are still with me. But for the rest of them, I’m just done with you. I don’t think I want to know any Never Trumpers either. They seem like they are just as bad as Trump. Show me what the Never Trumpers want and who their heroes are.
I’ve never done this before.
Thing is, here in California, almost every White person you meet is a conservative. Even the liberals are conservative. What I mean is that they are all economic conservatives. There’s no such thing as a White Californian who is not an economic conservative. They don’t exist.
And the ones who would not be categorized that way are basically Democrats who are down with Hillary Clintonian neoliberalism + neoconservatism. They hate working class Whites, are all very into money (and some are ludicrously flagrant in their conspicuous consumption), hate public transit, say, “But that would be bad for the economy!,” support free trade and love all the trade deals, love mass immigration (with a few exceptions), support US imperialist foreign policy to the hilt – in other words, they are lousy DNC corporate Democrats. They suck.
People keep saying this state is so liberal, but the White people sure aren’t. I don’t know about the Blacks and the Hispanics. Most Hispanics are too stupid to have a political opinion on anything, and they are so irresponsible that most of them don’t even vote. Blacks are good and vote straight Democratic, and they actually know quite a bit about politics.
People in the rest of the country keep saying we are crazy liberal out here, but someone needs to show me where these liberals are so I can go meet some of them. The average liberal Democrat that I knew would be a guy making $75,000/year showing me the new $100 ballpoint pen (waste of money) he bought. Then he would turn around and describe a meal at a $100/plate restaurant where they hardly even give you any food to eat in those tiny servings (complete waste of money). I hope they offer seconds! He defended this meal because as he told me, the dish was small, but it was “absolutely perfect,” as if God himself had made it. So it’s worth a hundred bucks. Bull.
There’s your “California liberal.” See what I mean, they suck.
Anyway, if you live here, are White and live around Whites all the time, the only people you ever meet are conservative Republicans.
Doesn’t matter what they do for work, how they dress, how they live their lives (get as imaginative as you want here), they are all conservative Republicans.
Yeah, that includes bisexual, smoking, heavy drinking dressed in black, lace and leather punk goth rocker decked out in all the latest punk fashion at the crazy punk rock show? She loves Ronald Reagan.
That major cocaine dealer in San Francisco who has three houses in the City, one where he lives, one where he keeps his stuff and another for who knows what – he votes straight Republican on his ticket and so do most of his coke-snorting drug underworld friends.
Most of the early punk rock bands out of Orange County where I lived were made up of conservative Republicans, believe it or not. Most supported Ronald Reagan in 1980. That’s what it’s like to be White in California. You either have conservative Republicans, rightwing Democrats, or corporate DNC Democrats as friends, or you don’t have any friends. And I like to have friends. Well, I used to like to have friends anyway. When I was younger, I had all sorts of friends. I had phone books with 100 names in them. I was that kind of guy, and in a very weird way, I still am. So anyway, living in California from 1978-2016, I am finally sick and tired of having conservative friends. I am done with them. Enough is enough. This last time was the killer. No more. This next four years is going to be an absolute nightmare.
I am deleting almost every pro-Trump person on my Facebook with a few exceptions. I am thinking of giving political quizzes to any new women I date. It’s going to be this way for the rest of my life. You have no idea how serious I am about this.
Conservatives have never helped me in any way, shape or form as far back as I can remember. The never did one single good thing for me. Instead they have been beating the crap out of me for 35 years now, and I am tired of getting beat up.
I’m done with conservatives. I’ve been hating them my whole life, and it’s time to say goodbye. And it was not nice having you over.
