Hey for all of the people (mostly young straight cis white men) just barely getting upset about Jeff Sessions and the Trump Admin due to their coming crackdown on legal marijuana - I just want to make something clear to you. I know you like to laugh at SJWs, and you don’t understand so-called leftist “buzzwords,” and you like to make the same fucking tired transphobic jokes for no reason - but let me just say, this is literally the perfect opportunity to talk to y’all about a little something called INTERSECTIONALITY.
What exactly did you think was the end game here for Republicans? Did you think that their states rights rhetoric was actually genuine? Did you think that triggering the libs was worth this? Because this crackdown on marijuana was obvious to anyone that works in any kind of activist work whatsoever. Do you know why? It’s because literally all of these issues are related. Marijuana legalization cuts down on mass incarceration, which is directly tied to racism and the Black Lives Matter movement, as well as queer liberation movements dedicated to the same things. The Republican party has always been and always will be more racist then they are actually concerned with upholding state’s rights. Everyone who has actually been oppressed by the state knows this. That is intersectionality. Now you at least understand one “buzzword.”
So now that the state is actually coming after something you enjoy and like, please try and fucking understand for once that you cannot have your cake and eat it too. You just can’t. You can’t be a transphobic or racist asshole and then be shocked when the state comes after your goose. Because every issue related to freedom and liberation is directly tied to every other issue related to freedom and liberation.
There can be no liberation until all of us are free. Fucking get your head out of your ass and join us, or you will just continue to be fucked over. I promise.
