David, this article is mostly cut and pasted from actual comments of friends and acquaintances. I decided to write it after a long exchange with a professional editor acquaintance whose main point was Monica Lewinsky was a slut who seduced former President Clinton. I have come to understand the phenomenon as similar to the comment the one lady made about feeling hesitant to publically support Hillary Clinton and describing those personal fears quite thoroughly and then saying she would drink champagne when Hillary Clinton was elected — since part of my article was about signs of economic deprivation and distress — it made her concern apropos to this article.
I missed the “libtard” comments. We’ve heard this for years along with “Feminazi.” Thousands of articles, films, TV shows and daily media caricature and mock right wing thought and issues. I don’t think I have good ability to do the exact same as 95% of others have done repeatedly for over a decade. Reuters just released a grotesquerie of Trump women akin to Ensor’s 19th century paintings of Dutch bourgeoisie.
I am not, nor have I ever been a “liberal”- I am progressive or “far left” i.e. How did they call Bernie? A doofus, I believe. Unrealistic, angry, gender biased, racist.
I am a writer and as Noam Chomsky recently described, shut out of mainstream media. I could easily publish imitative work conventionally and have.
But we have only a short time here and I choose to spend my time my way.
You can go here on Medium or any social media platform and collect statements of Trump supporters and assemble them just like this.
