Make America Forget Again.
It’s understandable. The people of the United States wanted to express with a tremendous roar, that enough is enough. They are sick and tired of the same old politicians doing the same old shit. So, what did they do? They took the pin out of the grenade and lobbed it in, hoping this will finally shake things up.
To any reasonable observer, Dickhead Trump ran a despicable campaign based on lies, bigotry, racism, hate and misogyny. Then, he won.
I won’t make this a rant about how this happened or how angry I am. It’s over and the people of America (and the rest of the world) need to move on.
However, moving on is different to forgetting. Politico recently reported that the Huffington Post will no longer add the editors note to articles about Trump, the ones about him being a piece of shit. Effectively giving him a clean slate. However they did say that “If he governs in a racist, misogynistic way, we reserve the right to add it back on.”. Whether other publications decide to do the same thing is yet to be revealed, but to me, this is completely unacceptable.
A clean slate is given to people who have accepted responsibility for their actions, people that have been held accountable for what they’ve done and then redeemed themselves. Winning the election doesn’t change the things that small-handed-orange mother fucker said, it doesn’t make them true and it doesn’t justify them. Giving him a clean slate implies that all is forgiven and now we’re starting fresh.
This is the same scum bag that said that he can do anything to women and they would let him because he’s a celebrity, that banning all Muslims from entering the United States is a good solution (a statement that his since been removed from his website), that he will build a wall to stop Mexicans and make them pay for it and so many other awful things.
Please America, don’t forget what he’s done, don’t forget that he has brought out the worst in people and given them a platform to spew their vile hatred and ignorance for the whole world to see.
He may be the next president of the United States of America, but he is still a despicable and hateful cunt. If we forget this and simply give him a clean slate as the president, he gets to get away with it and that would be the biggest tragedy of all.
