This one's from South Philadelphia. Another was seen by Annmarie Handley in Chicago.

Ron asked the other day how our personal lives would be made measurably worse by Trump's election. I knew his would be but I really didn't think mine would be in the short run. I may have spoken too soon.

And now it begins...

There are two sides of the Trump movement. One is right and the other is wrong. I'll post about this shortly.

No more Trump until 2020.

@FM, I don't think this is anti-That Man. There have been an awful lot of white supremacists tweeting and posting about harassing and bullying women, Muslims, Hispanics, immigrants etc with the goal of seeing if they can get them to kill themselves. I also saw fire up the ovens, LOL.

It's sickening. It has to stop. Be stopped.

It's happening down here, too. Students at Stephen F. Austin 'putting the muslims on notice' and tweeting: 'we're not putting up with anyone's PC bullshit anymore'. Emboldening the racist half-wits. Sickening. 

A couple of the clients I saw yesterday are school teachers at Austin ISD-- a population which is around 60% Hispanic-- and the Mexican kids were inconsolable, crying, "He's going to deport my grandma"...

I have no more words.

@FM;  "I did not see this election as a loss of morality and vision."

You don't see it because you can't or choose not to see it.  That's perhaps because to do so would require you to abandon the bubble of security you've created for yourself.

Your denial is palpable and approaching hypocrissy.

Trump’s candidacy was a disastrous tavesty. His presidency is a clear and present danger to those of us who were/are the targets of his insults or the butt of his jokes.

Now you have the brazen effrontery and unmitigated gall to suggest to Koshersalaami that his very legitimate rreaction/response to what he perceives as not just an insult , but a threat as well, is somehow misplaced, misguided, or unwarranted. 

You obviously were not paying attention to Trump's language or demeanor during his so called campaign rallies where he encouraged and incited  violence to the point where he might easily have been indicted for some kind of criminal malfeasance. 

Now you expect him to do as Obama would.  

Here's a flash for you:

THAT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN!  NOT NOW, NOT EVER AS LONG AS TRUMP IS PRESIDENT.

That's an awfully high horse you're riding blindly. Be carefu,l or you'll get knocked of it by a low hanging branch named Donald Trump.

Where have you been and what are you drinking? 

It has become clear to me the you are so insulated and so isolated that his presidency won't matter to you one way or the other.

So please take that pseudo diplomatic, semi intelligent, and faux patient "let's wait and see" bullshit and feed it to those whose lives won't be affected one whit by hearing the "N" word spit at them, Or seeing a "Trumptika" painted on a wall near their home.

Does it matter whether it was put there by a Trump supporter or Trump sympathizer?

I'll wager that it was NOT put there by the Black Panthers or BLM.

And PLEASE, cease and desist from that "we don't know for sure" crap,. People have been indicted , prosecuted, and executed on less evidence of causation.

And remember, as I have said, and will continue to say, the America you live in is not the same America that I must go out and face and navigate every day.

Trump’s  election just made it worse for me AND  Koshersalaami as well.

Ron,

This election was about two things. One was frustration with the status quo that ignores the very real plight of the White working class, the other is what I've seen referred to as Whitelash. FM acknowledges both.

I don't remember where I learned what, but you might be surprised by FM's ethnic background. She is not a bystander. 

 

FM,

I thought the same thing but given what neighborhoods these are in and what other graffiti surrounds them, these are definitely done by supporters. 

Comment by Ron Powell on November 11, 2016 at 9:56am

The price of anonymity....

She mentions both but I'mnot sure that she acknowledges racism as the underlying cause of Trump’s victory.

 

"...One was frustration with the status quo that ignores the very real plight of the White working class..."

Everton about Trump says 1% yet those who are screwed over by the disparity in wealth and income distribution seem to abandon theirpersonal economic and financial self interest in favor of an amoral,  racist pig.

You yourself have stated that when you take the pocketbook issues into account, race as a motivating force behind voting decisions, race seems to be the determinant...Why else would otherwise reasonable people vote against themselves?

Awesome how Ron feels comfortable dressing down Corporal Monkey at your post Kosher. I see this, the whole everything .. Trump himself, the redneck followers, the incendiary rhetoric and real actions, as a disaster, like I think we all do. We might be surprised where we come out of this though, in four years. Some say all things happen for a reason. We have many lessons yet to learn. Maybe, finally, the people will prevail and those exposed will get their collective comeuppance. I don't know. Nobody does. What I do know, and don't mind repeating, is that you and Ron and mamby pamby Jonathan Wolfman ... and many others across this land, stood behind a very flawed candidate in Hillary Clinton while wearing blinders to the thuggish injustice perpetrated by the DNC. Their single minded misguided purpose, to nominate Hillary Clinton, put fairness and justice aside, in a weird attempt to twist and hide the facts of what they were up to. Some people, you included, chose to wear those very same blinders. What we have now is the result, in part at least, of your collusion to conspire with those not so very nice people at the DNC. Now we have four years of this ^ to look forward to. Bernie would have, should have been, the president. [now go ahead and tell me he would have been beaten badly because he is Jewish .. this is your post, so you must]
