This weekend has been something to behold – as the man inhabiting the White House signs executive orders discriminating against Muslim people, protests are going on around the country, and his idiot daughter posts this:
I always thought she was smarter than that – guess I was wrong. How inconsiderate and rude – people are stranded and wrongfully detained, but you are wearing a fancy dress and going out. How friggin’ shallow can you possibly be? So disappointing.
What isn’t disappointing, though, is stuff like this:
Diversity is our strength, Prime Minister Trudeau tweeted…and once upon a time, I believe that the United States embraced that idea as well. In fact, I feel confident in saying that diversity was still a positive as recently as about ten days ago…but look at the mess we are in now. Those of us living in the United States these days should be worried – who knows where this crazy, diabolical man will attempt to wield his power next. It’s frightening.
Instead of talking about him and his shitty behavior, let’s celebrate the lawyers around the country who showed up at airports and helped those that have been unlawfully detained – talk about real life heroes! 🙂
Beautiful, right? And this was just the coverage from Chicago – this scene was played out all across the United States, as people rallied to help those being persecuted. The ACLU stepped in (thank God), and challenged this executive order, resulting in legal action which helped (and released) many of those being detained – but sadly, this situation isn’t over…it’s just getting started. I love hearing that the ACLU has received more money in donations this weekend than it did in all of 2016 – and, please, if you have the money to donate, be like Nike and JUST DO IT. The work that these people are doing is more important now than ever before – and every donation counts (especially when celebrities are matching your donations). I am still in shock that this person was voted in to office in this country, but I am hopeful that the epic shit show that is he will be the wake up call that people in this country who voted for him must need. He is not making this country great again – all he is doing is causing division after division….there is no unity. We need to stand up for what is right, we need to speak for all – not just those with piles of money, and we need to be better people. It’s for the good of all of us.
