"How did this happen?!" they cry.
You want to know how this happened? You want to know how America resorted to bigotry and racism? You want to know how we let a TV star with no experience get to the White House? You want to know why we couldn’t stop being stupid enough to listen to what you had to say?
I can explain.
Ten years ago I never had to tell somebody my wife was black and children were of mixed race to get them to stop assuming I was racist.
Ten years ago I didn’t have to tell somebody I’m bisexual to get them to stop assuming I was being homophobic.
Ten years ago I didn’t have to tell people I’ve read the Qu’ran to get them to stop assuming I was ignorant of Islam.
Fifteen years ago I had pride in my nation.
Twenty years ago I didn’t have to worry about the government spying on my because I sat next to someone suspicious on a plane.
Twenty years ago I didn’t have to worry about getting kidnapped for being an American in most other countries.
Twenty years ago 50 corporations made up 90% of the media market; today its 6.
Thirty years ago people weren’t being attacked by animals in the streets over who they voted for.
This is the country that brought the world electricity, the light bulb, that tamed the last frontiers in the world, that carved the faces of great men into mountains, that brought us powered flight, that broke the sound barrier, brought Europe peace after the most destructive war ever seen, tried to play nice but brought forth a fury never ****ing seen before when we were attacked, sent men to the ****ing Moon. But something happened.
We began intervening in other nations’ conflicts. We started trying to develop this network of power across the world. We started fighting wars for money. And when we were attacked harder than ever before, we pulled our punches and used it as an excuse to fight somebody that wasn’t even responsible.
We voted for change and change never came. We voted for the young charismatic man, and he sold us a bridge. He was given near complete power to bring change and what he brought us was a hamfisted attempt at health-care reform that he didn’t understand and we didn’t want. He promises change from the needless wars and brings us anonymous murder from above on an unprecedented scale. And because he happened to be President when gays got the right to marry, we are supposed to think of him positively?
Let me ask you, when was the last time you heard a song written with this much national pride?
We are tired of being led down the path of shame. We are tired of fighting other people’s wars. We are tired to the globalist network of power. We are tired of the oligarchy. We are tired of being undisputably the single most powerful nation to ever exist on this Earth and yet not being able to win the wars that corporations, industries, and oligarchs get us into because our leaders want to pretend war is an opportunity to be culturally sensitive and play nice.
But when we try to voice these concerns and desires we are called racist because the person we disagree with is black. We are called sexist because the person we disagree with is a woman. We are called homophobic for saying there are bigger priorities for the President than deciding who uses what bathroom. We are called Islamohobic for expecting our ultra-powerful military and police might to be able to provide us security. We are called rednecks, and fools, and morons, all because we disagree.
And we are told we should not disagree, because the “experts” say so? Like Nate Silver, who has been wrong about everything since 2012? Who was wrong about the results of the 2014 Midterms, the Brexit vote, the Primaries, the World Series, and the General election? I’m only an amateur analyst and I outperformed him.
We should just believe CNN who has been proven to feed information to political parties? Who orders their focus groups on how to respond? Who cuts the audio from anyone that strays from the narrative they sell?
The pollsters, who were so incredibly wrong about 2012, Brexit, and 2016?
Why should we believe the “experts” who get paid more and more for being right when they can’t get anything right?
Then a man we’ve known for decades shows up and decides to speak up for us - and you call him racist, sexist, homophobic, Islamaphobic, arachnaphobic and whatever else. But he speaks to us and for us. And you try to shut him up. You cast him as a reality TV star with no knowledge, while peddling Hollywood stars with no knowledge, as if Donald Trump has not been a household name for four ****ing decades?
Then all the people we’ve been sick of, the Bush family, the Clinton family, the Obama Administration, the elite of the world and the market and media all of these people we have been trying to get to change team up against this man. And you think we can’t see through that?
You lied about polls and when we saw through it you called us paranoid. You lied about crime committed and called us paranoid. You lied about the medical status of a public figure, for ****’s sake, and called us paranoid. Yet time after time when we were right, you just said “A broken clock is right twice a day!”
**** you. This happened because we are so goddamn sick of you. We are so goddamn sick of not being heard. We are tired of being brushed off when we speak, so we don’t speak often. The Silent Majority.
Michael Moore of all ****ing people, was the only one of you globalist shits to ever actually GET IT. You don’t ****ing get it. Michael Moore, of aaaaaall people said words that brought me to tears because of how accurate he was.
The media didn’t want him.
The GOP establishment didn’t want him.
The pollsters didn’t want him.
The globalists didn’t want him.
The NeoCons didn’t want him.
The Socialists didn’t want him.
The global power brokers didn’t want him.
But the people who are tired of fighting these wars our military isn’t allowed to win, tired of being robbed, tired of being taxed to poverty, tired of being insulted, tired of being slandered, tired of being lied to, tired of our livelihoods being given away, tired of being brushed off - yeah, US, we wanted him.
He isn't any of the things you try to tell us he is. We saw through it and you still lie even in defeat.
At the worst, he will be a message, louder and stronger than we have ever been.
And, at best, he will take us back to the Moon, up to the stars, build unrivaled monuments that will last centuries, bring back our jobs and our pride.
This man literally took on the world for us.
And I bet even if you read this, you still don’t get it.
