OMB tells federal agencies to prepare for shutdown… #TrumpShutdown #GOPTaxScam #ShitholeGOP
The #GOPShutdown on the heels of the #GOPTaxScam reminds me of drug addicts who blow their entire check on a binge on the 1st of the month, then don’t have any money left to pay their rent or bills.
That awkward moment when you got elected on promises to shut the Black POTUS’ government down and drown it in a bathtub, but now that it’s finally your turn to govern, you can’t because you’re drowning. #TrumpShutdown
Maybe y’all wouldn’t be struggling so damn hard to keep the government open if you hadn’t just looted the treasury to give tax cuts to mega rich people who don’t fucking need them, @GOP. Did you ever stop to think about that, or nah?! 🤷🏾‍♀️
Also the MSM is full of shit per usual, because I distinctly remember them sensationalizing the Teahadists who wanted nothing more than to defund every government agency they could name in 2009-10. Stop feigning shock that the idiots you aided/abetted are really doing this shit.

The MSM won’t tell you this, but today’s @GOP is too racist and ignorant to run the government properly. They can’t govern a nation that isn’t Whites only, and will destroy it from the inside out before they’ll ever share it with folk they hate.
Never forget that Trump and the @GOP exploited the bigotry, jingoism and xenophobia of the Republican base to gin up support for their anti-immigrant, White Nationalist and austere agenda.
The @GOP fears no major consequences or backlash from their diehard supporters for shutting the government down, b/c they’ve convinced them that doing so is the antidote to integration, inclusion, and equality for 50 yrs.
It matters not that the vast majority of folk receiving government assistance are White Americans, @GOP voters have been brainwashed to believe that they’re only sticking it to people of color by starving and stealing from the treasury.
I’ve said it before and I’m gonna keep saying it over and over again, racism is the enemy of functional government and until we stop sending the racist GOP to DC, none of this bullshit will change.
Understand that the ~30% of America that still approves of Donald Trump knew good and damn well he was a crook, they just didn’t mind because they foolishly thought he’d only steal from people of color. They elected him to Make America White Again.
The Republican base elected Trump and the GOP for the sole purpose of denying non-White people citizenship and the right to vote. They’ve been taught to believe their economic woes have been caused by diversity and will be solved by apartheid. They can’t be convinced otherwise.
Rather than tell the truth about the racist motivations underneath the “economic anxiety” of the White working class, the American MSM peddled the GOP’s Southern Strategy propaganda and willfully paved the way for this corrupt/dysfunctional government, and the #TrumpShutdown.
They exalted the ideology of racist, sexist, ignorant White Americans who were too hateful to appreciate President Obama’s economic recovery, and sold our country to the highest bidder for the sake of ratings and ad revenue. They built this shit.
They couldn’t be bothered to listen to or amplify the voices of Black and Latina women who warned the world that Trump would rob us blind and rip our families apart for sport. They spent all their time getting high on Hillary’s emails and broadcasting the GOP’s Klan rallies.
Maybe if the American press and cable news outlets weren’t so preoccupied with propagandizing their predominantly White audience, we wouldn’t so routinely be suffering the consequences of their miseducation. That’s how you know this shit is intentional.
We are experiencing this tragic moment in American history because rapid demographic change is underway and multiculturalism is wrestling power away from White male supremacy’s hands. Anyone who tells you otherwise is lying and wishful thinking.
He showed us who he was and what he would do. The GOP and its voters believed him wholeheartedly and are getting exactly what they voted for, it’s way too late for them to backtrack now. #TrumpShutdown

I don’t begrudge their secrecy either, but how exactly are the ~60% of White men who vote GOP ever going to evolve away from misogyny if not even the women in their lives feel safe enough to speak their minds? This is the American Taliban.
No one is explicitly addressing the narcissism and sociopathy of *mainstream* White American male culture from within its ranks. It’s literally shooting up the public square, desecrating the US government, waging endless war abroad/at home and killing the planet with IMPUNITY.
It’s already painfully clear they won’t listen to the marginalized groups they’re oppressing, but the fact that there’s literally been no appreciable impact of White on White peer pressure on the WM majority for so long in this country should be cause for much greater concern.

How are they possible Democratic voters if a) they don’t know or care what the party stands for b) they can’t be bothered to listen to or be intersectional with the marginalized groups that ARE the Democratic base c) they can’t tolerate confrontation of White male supremacy? 🤷🏾‍♀️
Listen Bros, I understand that you haven’t had a party to proudly call your own since GWB irreparably destroyed the GOP in the 2000s. I’ve documented it at length. None of this means you get to commandeer a coalition you don’t even actually support.
Rather than work internally to change the GOP or establish a viable 3rd party for Bros who are aware enough to be embarrassed by the GOP, they seek to meet their ends on the backs of the women, POC and LGBTQ who anchor the Democratic Party. HELL NO, Bro.

Respectfully, what you also aren’t getting is that the White privileged psyche of MAGAts, Klansmen, Nazis and other GOP isn’t unique to them or completely absent from the folk on the Left who routinely thwart Democratic objectives out of spite for women and POC. Slash that.
@philip_md1 I don’t make exceptions for racist/misogynist fuckery on the left. If these people want to actually join the Democratic Party, they need to listen for once in their lives and learn how to be RELIABLE allies to the base of the party. If not, they can GTFOH.
@philip_md1 You really need to take the time to read MLK’s Letter from Birmingham jail because if you still don’t see how White “moderates” are equally responsible for this disaster, you’re aiding and abetting it.

LOL if I’m honest I’d say I’m struggling to even figure out which one you’re referencing because aren’t they all?! 🤷🏾‍♀️🤪 Either way you’re guaranteed to find it on a) my wakelet page (link in bio) or b) my Moments tab #onhere.
@noralove It’s gonna irk me until I figure it out though 😂 is it this one?

Seriously though, where is Mark Judge? WTAF?!
I thought it was so disingenuous how Kavanaugh cited Mark Judge’s substance addiction as a reason why he shouldn’t be brought into this as if their mutual relationship with beer isn’t at the heart of this controversy.
Not only that but it’s also highly plausible that the sheer stress of keeping his and Kavanaugh’s dirty secrets concealed over the last few months triggered a relapse or exacerbation of Judge’s addiction.

I love how people keep declaring a constitutional crisis every day as if we haven’t already been in one perpetually since 1/20/17. 🙃
Who would’ve guessed that the illegitimately installed sociopath would behave like an illegitimately installed sociopath every fucking chance he gets?! Who would’ve guessed that his Republican enablers would actually use the rubber stamp they nominated?
Every Congressional Republican who’s up for re-election in November should be VOTED OUT simply on the grounds that they’ve aided and abetted Trump’s illegitimate and illegal occupation of the White House for going on 2 years. Mueller shouldn’t have to be doing their job for them.
