She Seems Nice

Let’s make this Trump voter internet famous:

This nation has a serious mental health crisis. I guarantee this woman drives an SUV without using turn signals.

    This was at the Michael’s a block from my apartment! It’s in Boystown/Lakeview in Chicago, which makes it even more insane. Everyone there is actually super nice and accommodating and they have a nice selection of frames.

    Also why do pundits never talk about the politics of white grievance/spite?

    It will serve as a reminder that there are consequences to this sort of behavior. It will encourage others to speak and behave more respectfully in the future. It will let more people know that the majority of Americans do not support racism and will not allow it to go unnoticed. If these people are proud of their words they can enjoy the video themselves.

    I’m seeing a LOT of this. They are so stuck and mired in their grievances and hate, they don’t even seem to realize that now they have to actually govern. “But Hillary…” is no longer a retort, yet that’s still their reflexive reply. All over twitter, armies of trumptrolls gloating “we won, get over it”…yeah, Cletus, we got that part…now how about the actual governing part?

    Flip flops and broken campaign promises? “But Hilla…” What about conflicts of interest with business, tax returns, foundation fraud, and stocking the cabinet with hard core wingnut freaks? “But Hillar…” Just fk these shitstain trailer-trash morons.

    @Served: Why do pundits not talk about white grievance/spite politics? They are too busy engaging in it in very respectable ways. The entire media consolidation rules, Fairness Doctrine, and cries of a biased liberal media strategy of the right was designed to make the media do the heavy lifting selling this to white America. See also David Brooks and his endless ramblings about how his culture is the very bestest (at least right up until it leads to Trump after which time he *finally* finds a way to show some discomfort with white supremacist politics.)

    53% of white women voted for Trump and 47% of white voters age 18-29 voted for Trump. Couldn’t find a race-age-gender breakdown but I’m sure there were a lot of young white women in that 47%.

    Have you ever seen a bigger of sore winners. Of course, their leader/daddy is on the twitters whining about how he would have won the popular vote too if all those “illlegal” voters votes weren’t included in the final tallies.

    Not only are they going to gloat for the next 4-years about how they won, they’re going to be insecure to the of lunacy that they didn’t win with 89% of the popular vote.

    This is what happens when the guy you supported and voted for has the mind and attitude of a petulant 10-year old.

    Sore winners each and every one of them. It’s not enough that they won, they want us to acknowledge that they are somehow better than us, they are the ‘real America’, who have risen up to take the country back. Democratic rule with all it’s multiculturalism is what has destroyed the country, and they have pulled us back from the brink. Now that their Shitgibbon has won, we should now agree that this is a great victory by a “great man”, anyone failing to do so is a sore loser. We must all become supportive of their champion, just as they were of Obama by constantly criticizing him to make him better. It’s reverse “thanks Obama”, blaming him for every failing was justified, criticizing the Shitgibbon for real failings and shortcomings is treasonous. These people are just as cracked and whinny as their champion.
    If you don’t like the service you are getting walk away, why do these dumbasses insist on patronizing places they insist hate them, I would not give them my money. Forcing people to “hate” you to take your money is stupid.

    Remember before the election when everyone assumed that Hilary would win, and they kept telling us not spike the football because 47% would have voted the other way, and we should be sensitive to their disappointment. Funny how these people are coming out of the woodwork to rub our faces in it, the ‘winner’ is calling our votes illegal, and the media seems to have no problem telling us to shut up and deal with it we lost. The poor WWC has been so ground down for so long that we should cut them some slack and understand their feelings.

    Interesting article in Vox today about the politics of white resentment and a historical corollary to the post-Reconstruction “Redeemers” movement in the late 19th century. As with all things in the U.S., it comes down to the states which still retain tremendous influence and power in your federalist system (part of which is why comparisons to European politics are incomplete).

    How can you discriminate against someone at a checkout counter of a chain store? It isn’t like the woman was refused service for being a white Trump voter. She wasn’t charged a different amount for her items. She wasn’t forced to use a segregated washroom or drinking fountain. She wasn’t forced to shop at a separate, but equal crafts store.

    Soprano2 says:

    That’s a certain type of entitled customer – the kind who believes it’s your job to sit there and take it as they rain down invective on you because they had a bad day, or for no reason at all. I found myself wondering if they had store security and why, if they did, hadn’t they already removed her. Most stores tell the help that they don’t have to put up with abusive behavior from the customers. She kept saying the clerk was screaming at her from across the store, but the only person I heard screaming at anyone was her.

    low-tech cyclist says:

    This woman was being an asshole, and being a Trump supporter seems to be just one way of showing off her asshole in public. (I’m sure economic anxiety wasn’t something she was feeling.)

    1) You can’t cure assholism. The asshole has to decide to change.

    2) There are too many assholes out there to waste my time trying to deter them one at a time, unless they’re actually in my space.

    3) I can do one civic deed a day if I’m lucky. That’s gonna involve calling a Congresscritter or two, not doing anything about this alleged human being.

    Nothing, probably.

    Racists don’t care about being racists, but they care a lot about the social opprobrium they think they get for being racist.
    Also, on principle, every single used ass-wipe like her makes shopping and customer service terrible for the majority who know how to behave in public, because then “customer service” becomes about placating the idiotic abusive nincompoops and almost nothing else. This is one reason you end up with robots answering your calls & checking out your groceries, because people are expensive and nobody wants to put up with spittle inflected invective. I think of it as standing up for people who have to work these these kinds of jobs.

    For every person who loses their job over such horrible behavior, it sends the message that they will be checked.

    And is it me or does this woman act, sound and look like the stereotype they paint on all young liberals?
