Okay like, I know the “what TV character do you like on TV that you know would be a Trump supporter” is half-joke to some people but I’ve even seen fandom thinkers blow this one lately and the “Dean would love the confederate flag” meme isn’t only new, but it’s extremely out of touch with canon. This take has bothered me for YEARS because of it.
So let’s hotlist this:
Dean jumping to the conclusion Dick Cheney is a demon 3.04:
DEAN Well, except that, uh, demons are evil.
CASEY …and humans are such a lovable bunch. (beat) Dick Cheney.
DEAN He one of yours?
CASEY Not yet. Let’s just say he’s got a parking spot reserved for him downstairs.
5.07 Dean uses Obama’s campaign slogan to explain why the (fake) feds are actually on time:
DOCTOR It’s just that you’re a day early. First time in history I haven’t sat on my ass waiting for you people.
DEAN New administration. A change you can believe in.
8.06, Dean’s take on the Confederate Flag:
DEAN looks around at a Confederate flag on the wall.
DEAN What’s up with all the, uh, hillbilly hankies? These people know the Civil War’s over, right?
Dean’s response to Garth suggesting vigil for confederate soldier 8.06:
GARTH All right. All right. All right. Uh, I kind of feel like we should say something, all right? Don’t you? Just… a little…
DEAN Sure. We won.
10.12, Dean sarcastically “Thanks Obama”s a monster crying that it’s so hard to kidnap kids these days
[Unraveling garlic] Hmm, in the olden days, if a child went missing—ah, the young died all the time. Now, though, with all your AMBER Alerts and your milk cartons, a person fillets one rugrat, and people get so angry.
Yeah, I blame Obama.
This says nothing for Dean’s terminal love of shooting nazis, both real and in the game Charlie loaded with her “ragingly liberal politics”.
To take this to an extra level, Bobo Berens stated that Sam is a Warren and/or Harris fan, and that Dean doesn’t vote. Which would be easy to ascribe him as apolitical, until you review this like-trade in the comments:
Which really well enough makes sense. Dean has successfully snuck up on a president before AND broken out of federal prison; he personally stagged the corpo-political fascist monger Dick in the fucking neck. So while both of them, legally dead, Sam might go out of his way to lengthily groom a fake ID just to vote, can anyone tell me Dean Winchester’s answer wouldn’t be “but WHY? Just burn the reptilian motherfuckers down.”
I don’t know what put in people’s heads that guns=republican. A lot of dems own guns. There’s a distinct flavor of classism when people say “well SAM was college educated and Dean wasn’t so obviously SAM would be a democrat but Dean must be a republican” for that matter.
Does Dean use problematic dialogue sometimes? Sure. Welcome to people, which varies depending on how they were raised. If we’re gonna accuse every person who’s ever used problem dialogue of being a trump supporter than like 99% of the SPN fandom must be trump supporters, including Destiel lane, so miss me with that nonsense.
Dean also frequently cites famous liberal thinkers, even if not necessarily a specific political quote, among other things we could rant on about. And these are just things OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD. I’m sure there’s more.
But Dean’s language is frequently colored Blue. He bashes on Team Red and always has. He has literally never bashed on a democrat. Like, fucking ever. Like I dare you right now, all the way back to season 1, to find me one quote where Dean Winchester shits on a democrat or their platform. Because that doesn’t go both ways.
I am SO TIRED of people trying to problematize shit because it’s the trendy thing to do, even supposed thinkers like, when the canon has been perpetually EXTREMELY FUCKIN CLEAR. OK?
So anyway Dean is antifa and that’s facts thanks for coming to my ted talk.
Everyone’s talking about how kind and genuine the Misha and Michael livestream talk was and that is true and it is such a good cause but if I can sideline for a second their names kept changing and it was hilarious. I missed screencapping Mishaziraphale and Michaestiel but I did catch this…
Am I the only one who fucking loves those fics where the characters end up in like a empty room and end up watching their show/movie and they react to it based depending if the events have happened yet or not

Summary: Dean Winchester has been your best friend and neighbour for the last year. A year of finding comfort in random drop ins and casual conversations, but neither of you know the pasts that the other has. Not fully. Pasts that come back to haunt you, and ruin everything you want in life. Can you find what you’re seeking in a couple of favours and a good time between the sheets or is history doomed to repeat itself?
A/N: Sorry for the minor delay. I added on an extra 800 words during editing! Oops? I hope you enjoy this part! Feedback would be greatly appreciated!! Happy Reading!
“You sure you’re okay to drive, Sammy?” Dean asked as he positioned himself on his crutches. You stood by his side with what the doctors called a take home doggie bag with his medication for his knee. They said it was going to take about six weeks for it to heal completely. Sooner if he took it easy, which you were going to try and implement as much as possible.
“Yeah, I’ve got this,” he nodded with the keys in his hand.
