It has been a while since we dropped in on Uncle Tim.
Traditionally, Uncle Tim has been known to get very excited by elections, and he recently had these thoughts to share on his Facebook page:
“Trump supporters are easily break-down-able into the following categories:
1. Blatant racists and white nationalists who have overwhelmingly pledged their fealty to him;
2. Conspiracy minded lunatics who have overdosed on Alex Jones videos and think Infowars is a legit news site rather than a place for mentally imbalanced people to meet;
3. People who are legitimately hurting and legitimately detest neoliberalism but somehow believe a rich guy is the one who will deliver them from that…mostly because they’re racists and thus never supported Bernie Sanders, who said all the same things about neoliberalism but wasn’t a bigot;
4. Pathetic Republicans who support the brand more than human decency and will vote for and flak for any Republican, no matter how objectionable, just because of the R next to their name…
And no matter which of these one falls into…they all deserve to be politically destroyed…immediately and forever….
I want them all to be miserable on 11/9. I want them to be crying, wailing, utterly prostrate with misery. I want their white supremacist fantasy to die that day and if they aren’t ready for that, too bad, I want it to hurt… I really hope that Trump’s supporters are miserable the day after the election, Sorry, I do…their feelings mean nothing compared to the lives that will be saved by defeating their savior. And if they can’t handle it and decide to declare civil war, I have no problem — and I mean NONE — with making sure they are done as a political force in this country. Interpret that however you wish.
Multiracial democracy is a more important goal than your white nationalist fever dream, We will win. You will lose…hopefully, very painfully.”
Sounds like a “zero sum game” to me.
