Divided States of America

People are telling us we need to get over the election and unite with each other. We all know the saying, united we stand divided we fall.

How does the new CEO in Chief expect to unite an African/American citizen with a Klansman? The Klansman would just as soon as put a rope around the black guy's neck and hang him than to embrace him.

C'mon, man. Not happening.

This election officially divided the nation; we are now The Divided States of America.

On the one side are citizens who approve of a multi-cultured, diverse nation; on the other side are the Confederate Flag wavers, those who want a nation only of white, European men (huh, I thought we were situated in North America, not Europe, but that is what they say.)

On the winning side we have the haters, the misinformed, the bigots, sexists, misogynists, homophobic, anti-Semitics, Klansmen ~ the underbelly of society.

On the losing side we have the lovers of liberty, the First Amendment, the 14th Amendment, logical or critical thinkers, the ones that know history does repeat itself, but never thought it could happen here. The haters of a two-party rigged system.

The winners are those who believe the earth is flat; who do not believe that ice bergs melting, warming ocean temperatures means climate change, just a hoax started by the Chinese; the religious fanatics who kill doctors, bomb clinics, insist WE ARE A CHRISTIAN COUNTRY as if shouting it online will convince those who know, that we are a country that allows for freedom to worship ~ any ole religion a body chooses or none at all.

Who knows, maybe homosexual men will unite with Pence, accept electroshock treatment to turn them into heterosexual men. I don't know. You tell me.

C'mon, man, get real.

You will never unite me in hate with the haters. Could be wrong, maybe the haters will suddenly drop their anger and learn to love the rest of humanity. I will not hold my breath on that one.

Peace.
