Met my first true tRumpers tonight and as usual, they came at me with their vitriol about how clean water, clean air, pollution is all bullshit. Said trump may go down, but we will win in the end. The ignorance is staggering with these people, but tonight I didn't feel it was ignorance as much as bravado. We are going to take over this country and fuck you damn liberals! Of course I didn't engage them because it would have fed right into their narrative and given them great pleasure. This whole thing is really a game to them. I see it in the glee they get from being confrontational, as if we're in control now and we will screw who we want when we want! They are either totally brainwashed, or they have pure hatred for anything that represents the average American. You can actually feel the sense of superiority that they feel about themselves.
I can imagine Germany in the 30's, just in the look on their faces. Rather disgusting that this is going on in our country, but then again, that is humanity at it's finest!
I will never fully understand thinking like that and I would normally just brush it aside, but these are serious times. We must defeat this ignorance or whatever you wish to call it and regain some sanity in this country! Trump has unleashed the demons from hell and they are not going to go back in their holes willingly. If and when trump goes down, expect a tremendous upheaval among his followers. Sort of like Jim Jones and Guiana, but these people won't kill themselves, they will kill others. That's how deranged they are. I can't fully explain it, but that's about as close as I can get!
Other than that, I had a great time with sane friends who are cheering me on. I also met a friend from last year who knows a poly-sci major at Bates College that wants to manage a campaign, and free at that! Knows a lot about political campaigns and wants to help me with the financial end and much more. So I will sit down with them in a couple weeks and see if we can come together on a decent campaign.
This is getting better by the day. I may not have to worry about getting signatures, my website is getting more hits and I'm ready to roll.
With that, I will say goodnight Irene, goodnight!
