“You lost boo hoo! Trump won fairly! Suck it up!” says Arelik.
“Trump won, get over it. You lost, stop acting like a whiny little bitch- it’s funny, but also embarrassing.” says Andrew Keith.
“Get over yourselves. Whether you like it or not Trump won. Move on and unite behind him.” Says Rosalyn Pearlman.
“Trump is already greatest president ever” says @TrumpIsKing.
Do we just need to get over it, suck it up and move on? Is it time for Americans to just forget about every issue that divides them, and unite behind Donald Trump?
Many people who supported Donald Trump in the 2016 election have screamed in protest against what they call “political correctness”. They’re upset when people criticize them for using words like “nigger”, “kike”, “bitch”, and “faggot”.
When it comes to substantive political dissent, however, these same people can’t stand to hear a difference of opinion. They think it’s funny to draw swastikas on books and shout out “sieg heil” at public meetings, but when one of their supporters expresses opposition to Donald Trump’s extremist policies, they become furious and demand that everyone fall in line behind their chosen Great Leader.
That’s not how things are supposed to work here in America. The USA was established as a democracy where dissent was valued, where differences of opinion were celebrated.
Donald Trump won the presidential election of 2016, barely, without a mandate, while losing the popular vote.
That does not make Donald Trump our king. We had a revolution against monarchy back in 1776.
The more we see of Donald Trump’s incompetence, ignorance, and cruelty, the more determined we become to resist.
No, we are not going to back down. No, we are not going to get over it.
Donald Trump lost the popular vote. Over half of Americans are opposed to his presidency.
Don’t like it? Tough. As long as we can speak out against Donald Trump, we will.
Get used to it.
