I Think Less Of You

This saying of “Think less of you.” has been around for a bit over a year, but it really does sum up my sadness and helps to tamp down the ager I feel towards others. I think it sums up my thoughts on our political opponents and current situation.

Text Version of Think Less of You

I am not mad at you that Clinton lost. I am unconcerned that we have different politics. And I don’t think less of you because you vote one way and I vote another.

No …

  • I think less of you because you watched an adult mock a disabled person in front of a crowd and still supported him.
  • I think less of you because you saw a man spouting clear racism and backed him.
  • I think less of you because you listened to him advocate for war crimes, and still thought he should run this country.
  • I think less of you because you watched him equate a woman’s worth to her appearance and got on board.

It isn’t your politics that I find repulsive. It is your personal willingness to support racism, sexism, and cruelty. You sided with a bully when it mattered and that is something I will never forget. So, no … you and I won’t be “coming together” to move forward or whatever.

Trump disgusts me, but it is the fact that he doesn’t disgust you that will stick with me long after this election.

Feel free to share this. #resist #persist

Donald Trump Sworn in as America's 45th President of the United States

Use this, and any other means at your disposal, as a form of non-violent protest. Now, more than ever, the citizens of this country need to stand up and shout out against evil, corruption, sexism, misogyny, sexual assault, bullying, anti-intellectualism and general lack of morality that is sweeping into acceptance with Donald Trump’s win. His swearing in is an all too real sign of the trouble that America, and the world, is in. 

Our world just got grabbed by an absolutely awful individual. He now has the power to actually ruin it instead of just being a stain on it. So fight to take it back. Anyway you can.

Post this image everywhere on social media. It is a small step. But we must keep telling the world and those in power that we are not ok with a president that was just sworn in even though he was caught on tape bragging about sexually assaulting women. 

We can’t continue down this path.
