With the closest people in my life undocumented immigrants and LGBTQ+, the effects of the election result will be all-too real. Sux.

Sad Day
Taken together, most of my friends and the people closest to me are undocumented immigrants, LGBTQ, and people of color. So it's a particularly despondent day here.
Trump's ascendancy to the presidency and the Republican control of -- well, just about everything in D.C. -- means day-to-day liberties enjoyed under the Obama administration are now wholly threatened. If you're a PoC, LGBTQ, undocumented, Muslim, or a woman, last night's negative consequences are real -- and severe. The alt-right is now much more emboldened, so it makes it a scary time to actually walk the streets of a country where we're supposed to feel some level of safety.
Blegh.

Welp
Big "Sieg Heil Trump" with swastika painted overnight on campus building of my university town's campus. And I'm in a blue state. This sucks majorly.

Re: knowing better
I would like to see him throw the Vatican mob out of the country myself, since they are the ones violating our borders and bringing in illegal aliens.
Fascist nonsense. The reason undocumented immigrants are in the U.S. is because of the U.S.'s violence and oppression against Latin America beginning in the 19th century and continuing onto the Cold War and the current "War on Drugs."
You've always shown your true colors, Faith, so we've always known that you're not an actual Christian in the Jesus Christ sense -- but here you are, confirming it once again.

Re: Info Vatican illegal immigration
You and the Left haven't proved any lies at all. You are aiding and abetting an illegal movement.
I don't give a damn about immoral laws. Ever heard of Jim Crow laws? Of slavery? Of the criminality of Judaism under the Nazi regime? Maybe once the U.S. stops its genocide, its oppression, and its violence we can talk about legality like it's the main concern here.

Re: Why someone might vote for Trump.
Well, to be fair, the people who voted for Trump -- they aren't the best and brightest citizens America has to offer. They're ignorant bigots. They're homophobes and racists. They're misogynistic reactionaries.
And some, I assume, are good people.
