You Know What

[TRIGGER WARNING: MASS SHOOTINGS, POLICE BRUTALITY]

Fuck Republicans and also fuck Democrats, fuck all of congress right now.

The reason why I'm saying this today is because of the baseball game shooting. I was going easy on them yesterday because you know what? I actually did feel a little sorry for them. I have a bit of an overload of empathy and somehow my heart isn't completely shriveled up from being fucked over constantly by these assholes.

But watching video of them yesterday saying shit like "an attack on one of us is an attack on all of us" and talk about how they're all fucking friends outside of work, Democrats and Republicans, it just makes me sick. They really are sitting up there in DC blowing each other all day while the rest of us suffer. Because when Paul Ryan says "us" he means the elite. The rich. The few people rich enough and powerful enough to decide whether the rest of us live or die.

Where is "an attack on one of us is an attack on all of us" when yet another black man is gunned down by police for having A Thing in his hand or for walking toward them or anything else they can dream up? Then it's not "an attack on one of us is an attack on all of us," it's "he shouldn't have [insert placeholder for 'existed as black' here]."

Where is "an attack on one of us is an attack on all of us" when a white man walks into a Planned Parenthood and murders people with a gun? No moving, heartfelt speech from Paul Ryan then. Just a lot of silence.

Where is "an attack on one of us is an attack on all of us" when Trump attacks the poor by trying to take away our healthcare? Oh, doesn't matter to them in that case, because we're not "one of us," are we? The rest of us outside of their circle of fuck buddies can go ahead and fucking die.

But you know what? You're right, Paul. You should ALL be on fucking edge up there in your palaces. I hope you all know that it was an attack on all of you. All Republicans trying to make it so poor people die, and all Democrats breaking bread with those murderers because they only care about appearing to care about the rest of us. You should all be scared. Because the people won't tolerate your attacks on all of us forever.
