candidate for president

Black voters in Alabama were characterized as unmotivated by nearly every media establishment. And yet they made tonight a reality in overwhelming numbers.

They beat a man who proclaimed slavery equated to a better America and who Steve Bannon proudly endorsed.

They came out in droves for a civil rights activist who faught against the KKK.

They were a loud voice against the all too normalized culture that exists around pedophilia and disgusting and sinful perversion.

They took a giant step in the right direction for gay rights and equality.

I know to the outside world this was supposed to be a slam dunk, but this is a region of the country who made candidate and President Trump a reality. A Democrat hasn’t won the deep South in 25 years.

Christ. Selma, Alabama. They made history yet again. Please let this be a sign of things to come. Please.

 FIC RECS 2 (I made another list)


Hi, that title was deceptive. This is actually about how promoting the above message is civilly irresponsible.

Originally posted by glendonfrancis

Pictured: a successful business woman, fantastic speechgiver, cultural leader, and, so far as anyone can tell, a kind and intelligent human being. She is the American Dream story made real, and so inspiring that it seems fair to wonder if she is really just a human like the rest of us.

She is not a viable political candidate for President. Please, please, please, do not pass around those messages. Even when you are joking, you are doing something dangerous for our democracy.

Oprah Winfrey is a brilliant, inspiring, and moral person so far as I can tell. But American culture cannot survive confusing the boundaries between celebrity and politics.

A large part of the problem with President Trump is not his morals, intelligence, and (lack of) politics- it is his ignorance, inexperience, and disinterest in law and politics and many complicated institutions and histories.

Maybe, if Oprah threw her hat in for a (comparatively) smaller game like becoming a governor, representative, or senator, she would gain the knowledge and skills necessary to be a good president. It is possible, if implausible, that she would be prepared by 2028 after only two terms working in government. She absolutely will not have that experience in 2020. Do not jump on this bandwagon of normalizing the confusion of celebrity and the political.

A cult of personality was a large part of what elected President Trump. That problem has plagued other countries, and we can look to them for examples about how terribly that can play out, no matter how good a person is- or is perceived to be.

Literally in the year 2018, right now, there is a country being led by a woman who was given a Nobel Peace Prize and supported to power on a basis of personality and celebrity rather than administrative, legal, or military accomplishments. Her government is participating in genocide. Right now. In 2018. It certainly looks as though she is at best indifferent to this, possibly supportive in ways that that the global blindly overlooked- but she possibly would not be able to take effective action against it anyway. She doesn’t know how to lead. 

If you don’t know who I am talking about offhand, that is a sign that you don’t know very much about recent history and current events. That’s not a moral or intellectual failing- but it is a sign that you should seriously consider learning more before jumping on a political bandwagon that is drastically outside norms.

Turning a figure of admiration, in this case a martyr, into a political leader, is dangerous. American left- I know I’m being a buzzkill, and that Oprah is by no means a direct comparison for Trump. But this campaign of enthusiasm is a dangerous and irresponsible mirror of what the right did in 2015. We saw that mistake play out. The problem is not those specific people- it is confusing the boundaries between civil, monetary, and political interests.

A lot of the problems in American politics, as the left sees things, is money as politics. Sometimes wealthy people support democratic interests that we support, but that does not make the blurring of the distinction any less wrong. The terrible decision to call money ‘speech’ is a weapon that can cut both ways, just as electing a celebrity who we like could work for us for 4 years but ultimately degrades our democracy.

This is another line that we should not cross. We desperately need to pivot to normality, not counter by propping up our kind of celebrity. Don’t do this.
Donald Trump to be first president to speak at anti-LGBTQ hate group's event
Donald Trump is to address the annual conference of an anti-LGBT group which has been classified as a hate group.

Donald Trump is adding another terrible “first” to his list today. The president is speaking at the Values Voter Summit in D.C., the annual conference held by the extremely anti-LGBTQ hate group Family Research Council. 

He’s the first sitting president ever to address the conference. He spoke there last year as a candidate, but now that he’s president, there’s even more weight added to his presence there. 

The Family Research Council opposes and actively lobbies against equal rights for LGBT persons. The conservative Christian group campaigns against same-sex marriage, same-sex civil unions, LGBT adoption, abortion, embryonic stem-cell research, pornography and divorce. 

Every year the conference sparks controversy for its choice of speakers and in 2010 the Southern Poverty Law Centre, a legal advocacy organisation which specialise in civil rights, went so far as to classify the Family Research Council as an anti-gay hate group.

Richard Cohen, the president of the Southern Poverty Law Centre, condemned President Trump’s decision to address the event.

“By appearing at the Values Voter Summit, President Trump is lending the legitimacy of his office to a hate group that relentlessly demonizes LGBT people and works to deny them of their equal rights,“ he told The Independent.

Hate is not a family value. This is despicable. He is despicable. 

3453241342  asked:

Instead of blamecalling people for not voting for Clinton please figure out why this happened

Oh, okay. Let me give it a try! I’ll keep it nice and simple for you, account-that-is-totally-real-and-sincere!

See, after the primaries, we have two candidates to choose for president. There will be other candidates running, of course, but one of these two will be the president.

This past election, we had a clear choice between a qualified but flawed woman, and a completely unqualified conman. 

Oh, but here’s where it gets sticky! A substantial number of voters didn’t get their way in the primaries, so rather than vote against putting a dangerously unqualified conman into the White House, they had their little temper tantrums. 

So I can figure out precisely why this happened. A bunch of goddamn emotional toddlers didn’t care that so much was at stake in this past presidential election, and now they get to stand around being smug and self-righteous while the adults in the room try to minimize the damage that they helped cause.

They spent a whole year trying to erase her and act like she didnt exist. Now theyre writing her bio as a candidate for president of the federation who treated her so poorly. 

So Lena…could you say her name…address the woman you really owe this apology to? Do you even know her name or remember it? So this apology was not that you believed Aurora, but that you PUBLICLY stated your opinion on this case because you personally knew the accused. You’re sorry you TIMED IT BADLY, not that you said it.

You don’t believe her, you made your mind up on the matter. You heard her, you examined it from your prespective, then decided it was not true. You never said you believed her, you’re preaching to other women about what we should be doing while never doing so yourself.

You’re not naive! You are just so high off all the power you have gained under feminism that has allowed you to be excuse for racism, sexism, and fucking sexual assualt that you thought you could say whatever. Our past candidate for president allowed you to be a part of the fucking campaign even with your background because you are so well protected now. People came to excuse every nasty thing you’ve ever done because you pretend to be some champion for women.

You’re a villain. You have manipulated and fooled many women into believing you give a shit and are fighting for the greater good. The only thing you’re fighting for is adding an extra digit to your bank balance. Your fight for women is nothing more than a self serving lie that you have managed to wrap up in a pretty package.

We aren’t your sisters.

We aren’t your friends.

We’re you’re customers.

When you made this apology it wasn’t because you saw all the women who naively looked up to you seeing thier hero betray them. What you saw was money walking out the door.
