“We don’t look to be ruled!”

When it comes to political discourse I don’t tolerant dogma, smears,
or self-indulgent ideologues.

I want to hear ‘opinions’ that are supported by evidence I can find
beyond the fringes of Brietbart and The Militant

I have no respect for people who are too lazy to think for themselves.

I have no patience for people who repeat the talking points and character
assassinations on Fox News.

Your uninformed opinion is not equal to an informed opinion,
and opinions aren’t news.

If you have to lie to make your point you don’t have one.

If you have to cheat to win your game you’ve lost.

These basic norms of behavior are clear to most thinking
Americans.

I don’t engage with Trump supporters because I don’t
believe they exist.

As far as I’m concerned people posting as Trump supporters
are either paid Russian operatives or mindless AI programs.

I refuse believe that real Americans are so blindly stupid.

Rob Goldstein, 2017

On edit: This post uses hyperbole to make a point although if I have to
explain it, it didn’t work. I know that a minority of Americans support
Trump. These are the same people who believe that gay men are gay
because they have a clitoris in their throats.

Dear @realdonaldtrump,

 My name is Marwa, and I am a Muslim.

I heard you wanted us the start wearing ID badges, so I decided to choose one for myself.

I am not easily identifiable as a ‪

Muslim

just by looking at me, so my new badge will let me display proudly who I am.

I chose the peace sign because it represents my ‪

Islam.

The one that taught me to oppose ‪injustice and yearn for ‪unity.

The one that taught me that killing one innocent life is equivalent to killing humanity.

I heard you want to track us as well.

Great!

You can come with me on my Cancer Awareness walks at the local middle school, or you can follow me to work where it’s my job to create happiness.

You can also see how my local mosque makes PB&J sandwiches for the…
