So I’ve had something stuck in my craw for some time now. It is this: I want to show my support for Trump on my personal social media accounts, but I can’t. I can’t because of the work that I do (social work) and because if I did, I know the response I’d get, which is a whole heap of unfounded charges of racism against Trump (no evidence) and against me (an absolute lie).
And honestly, I just don’t want to engage with the thoughtless idiots on the other side. It doesn’t matter if they know who I’m voting for or if I know who they are voting for because it’s a secret ballot. So there’s no reason or incentive for me to engage the opposition on FB et al. In fact, it gives THEM all the power to do so because they get to spout more of their senseless bullshit and call Trump (and me by extension) racist one more time.
As I’ve said many times, fuck that shit. #GoTrump.
So here’s what I’m going to do from now until November: I’m going to randomly post pictures of lions to my personal feeds to show support of Trump, no comment necessary. Maybe just a random #GoT or @forever every now again, just to keep ’em guessing or confused.
Now that’s just me, and what I’m going to do. But…To paraphrase a famous singer…
You know, if one person, just one person does it they may think he’s really sick and they won’t take him. And if two people, two people do it, in tandem, they may think they’re both faggots and they won’t take either of them. And three people do it, three, can you imagine, three people posting a picture of a lion and then not talking about why. They may think it’s an organization. And can you, can you imagine fifty people a day, I said fifty people a day waking up and posting a picture of a lion and not talking about it…. And friends they may thinks it’s a movement. But they won’t know what the movement means…until November 8, 2016.
Can you imagine? Well, you can have one of these here lion pictures I gave you. Or you could find your own and we could stockpile ’em in this very thread for future use.
Show me your lions!!!!
This is an open thread.
