But what if some of your followers like the current administration. Can you really hate them?
This will probably be the most personal I will ever get on this site… that’s the disclaimer.
Hate is a very strong word. However, if I have Trump supporters as followers I hope they choose to either educate themselves or go ahead and not associate with me. I am a latinx, bisexual woman, who grew up being raised by a strong latinx immigrant woman. She raised me and my brother, who has a developmental disability, completely on her own because my white, American father was among the laziest men I’ve ever had the misfortune of knowing.
Guess which of the two society favors more? My father. Despite the fact that he contributed nothing to society, my father has been coddled by society (trust me, my father should actually have been thrown in jail a few times) and by my rather wealthy grandparents. My mother has been discriminated against, and had racist words thrown in her face. She’s also had to rely on programs such as Medicaid, CHIP and social security for my brother and I. She had to go to food banks. While a lot of people would call her lazy for needing these “entitlements” and “handouts” my mother was actually out there working 3 jobs.
Donald Trump with his “bad hombres,” and Mexico sending rapists and drug dealers into this country, is a product of everything I see wrong with this country. Making immigrants seem like an enemy, when the vast majority of them are seeking out a better life for themselves or their families, is dangerous.
And that is just one of my issues with Trump.
I am someone who is an atheist, but truly believes in freedom of religion, meaning there should not be a Muslim ban.
I am someone who believes the US has broken enough treaties with Native Americans and we should absolutely not be building pipelines on their land (it’s actually all their land so…) and threatening their water, or threatening them with arrest.
I believe society and government are suppose to help protect the rights of those who do not necessarily have the ability to protect themselves. Minorities, the poor, LGBTQ community and people with disabilities, but Trump and his administration have made it clear that they do not care about this population at all, and actually intend to do more harm.
Trump and his goons want to make themselves and their pals richer at the expense of the American people. So I pity any person who is under the misguided understanding that Trump will actually help them and I… yeah I probably hate every Trump supporter who embraces Trump specifically for the hate or because they know they’ll get rich off him.
Thankfully, the bit that keeps me sane is the fact that I know there are a lot more of us who don’t support him then those that do.
