Hypocrisy Prevails

27 Oct

With the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett, we see how hypocrisy and sociopathy prevail in the United States. Trump and McConnell did not even wait 24 hours after the passing of iconic hero Ruth Bader Ginsberg to announce they would rush through the appointment of a new justice.

Well, 8 days before the election and the diagnostic, sociopathic GOP appointed Barrett to fill RBG’s seat. Another slap in the face of Democracy and such bitter hypocrisy. In 2016, eight months before the election, President Obama tried to appoint Merrick Garland as a Supreme Court Justice, only to be blocked by the King of Hypocrisy, Mitch McConnell. McConnell stated that, “he would consider any appointment null and void.”

The people of the United States should be outraged as we witness this hypocrisy and the implications now of a right wing activist Supreme Court– a court that is supposed to be a part of a system of checks and balances. Sadly, we can not differentiate between the Senate and the Supreme Court who do the bidding of the quintessential sociopath, Trump.

We now see the opportunity to turn back civil rights back by 100 years. As a queer man, I worry for myself and husband; I worry of all immigrants; I worry for all women; I worry for all of us who need health care; I worry for all people with targeted identities, as this is the last grasp for white supremacy to ensure that white, heterosexual, cisgender, able bodied, Christian men sustain power and create an apartheid nation.

VOTE! Vote McConnell out. Vote Graham out. Vote Collins out. VOTE!

    I worry too , and am fearful of the reactions of the white supremacy people, grasping for any semblance of status quo.
    Nice to see your writing Michael

    Hi Michael! I’ve been out of touch for a while and there is no excuse for that, while you have been waging to good fight so well…. Well, I post this on Nov. 18. WE DID IT! I know our victory over the racist, sexist, fascist Trump was not the total knock-out punch over the right wing we wanted. But we got the prime thug out of there! We can take stock of how we reversed the ethos of the 2016 election, and proved that hate is not a sure fire winning political proposition. And we have much more crucial work to do. Love has much more to win, but we have shown that it can!
