Today is election day, and people are waiting in line to elect local and national leaders. Trump and Biden have been pleading their cases to voters for months, and today is the culmination of all that effort.
Trump has shown himself to be a misogynistic, racist, homophobic, and xenophobic individual. He claims that women love him (and vice versa), yet he jokes about grabbing them by the pussy (sexual assault/rape jokes are NOT FUNNY). He also said he would date his own daughter Ivanka if they weren't father/daughter (do you really want an incestuous president? I sure as hell don't! That's nasty AF!), and he says the most disparaging things to women who question his motives. He doesn't condemn any violence against women, as we have seen with Governor Whitmer of Michigan. His followers orchestrated the attempted kidnapping, and all Trump did was mock her. He has disparaged Kamala Harris' name by purposely saying it wrong. He says that she isn't fit to be a President. He has insulted AOC billions of times, and he has made racist remarks about Elizabeth Warren's Native American ancestry.
If you really think about it, he slings the most mud at strong, free thinking women!
If Trump is re-elected, the next 4 years could be the darkest 4 years of our country. In 2016, Trump had A LOT on his table that he wanted to accomplish. He couldn't do anything because the Supreme Court wasn't Republican majority. With Ruth Bader Ginsburg's sudden passing, Trump wasted no time nominating the most ultra-conservative right-winger he could find: Amy Coney Barrett. Now she sits at the highest seat of the Supreme Court, and Republicans are the majority. Trump is free to put forth anything that he wants, and this country will be flushed into the shitter. He proved this yesterday when he signed an executive order for all schools to teach "Patriotic Education." In other words, you will learn Christian white history only. Trump wants to put God and the Bible in our public schools. There are THOUSANDS of religions in this country and throughout the world. I shouldn't be surprised by any of this. Just this morning, a couple of his supporters DEFILED a Jewish Cemetery by spray-painting Trump's name on gravestones. In 2016, he wanted to make abortion illegal nationwide, and punish women who get them.
Just this year, Trump told a bunch of "suburban women" that he would put their husbands back to work. In Trump's mind, women don't work. Women are barefoot, pregnant, in the kitchen, cleaning the house, and being raped nightly by their caveman husbands/slave owners.
Years ago, I read "The Women's Room," by the late, great Marilyn French. She was a radical feminist who did so much good for the second wave of feminism. In "The Women's Room," there is a quote that has stayed with me since I saw it: "Whatever they may be in public life, whatever their relationships with men, in their relationships with women, all men are rapists, and that's all they are. They rape us with their eyes, their laws, and their codes."
Donald Trump leads men with his rapey code of ethics. He puts the fear of God in women in order for them to submit to his will. He wants to indoctrinate our children with racist, homophobic, xenophobic, and patriarchal curriculums (Hitler did the same thing in Germany).
Folks, we cannot let Trump win this election. Get out there and vote. Women cannot be sent to the dark ages, and our kids deserve a well-rounded education where they can be free-thinkers. We cannot be defiled by Trump and his inhumane agenda for four more years. Vote him out! Our lives, liberties, and freedoms depend on it.
