Welcome to the New America

[TRIGGER WARNING: SEXUAL ASSAULT]

Same as the old America. You know, the one from the 50's.

Conn. Republican arrested for grabbing woman’s genitals — his lawyer says it was ‘a playful gesture’

But wait, it gets horrifyinger!

The incident, which took place in December 2016, began when the 57-year-old woman encountered von Keyserling in the hallway. The two had a brief political argument, in which von Keyserling remarked, “I love this new world, I no longer have to be politically correct.” 
When the woman tried to walk away, von Keyserling allegedly reached from behind to place his hand between her legs and pinched her in the groin. He said “it would be your word against mine and nobody will believe you,” the woman claimed.

I believe her.

This is what happens when you elect a man who runs on a platform of saying and doing whatever he wants, no matter how harmful, and specifically on how awesome it is to sexually assault women. It's not just locker room talk. This is what men like him and von Keyserling (what a name) really want. They want to lord their unearned power over the rest of us by assaulting and abusing us.

And for those of you who voted for Donald because you didn't think he was serious about the things he was saying or that it didn't matter, I have this for you:




This is the world I am and have been afraid of. One where men can sexually assault me at any time and face no consequences. Welcome to Donald's America! Kill me now!
