Fire them All

16 Feb

These are the bodies of two letters I just wrote to my senators and representative:

 

The second in charge of the EPA (formerly the Environmental Protection Agency, now the Environmental Persecution Agenda) has a history of lobbying for, not against, the coal industry. Um, dystopia much?! How is it that Dump gets away with invariably hiring monsters who are the extreme opposite of people who are qualified for the job? They all need to be fired. Dump’s undermining of the United States by hiring these people is further proof that he has no respect for our country and doesn’t belong in the White House but in prison.

This hater of planet Earth, Andrew Wheeler, is a bully who’s on the side of corporate polluters, not someone who should be working for the EPA.

The foxes are watching the hen house.

Andrew Wheeler clearly needs to be fired.

Jeff Sessions doesn’t give the hair on a donkey’s chin for justice and should therefore be fired from his position of Attorney General. There’s nothing “general” about what he represents. He doesn’t even hide the fact that he’s a white supremacist! Sure, this is common since the disastrous November 2016 election, but he’s in the position of Attorney General of the country formerly known as the United States. He’s overtly xenophobic, racist, misogynistic, homophobic, and transphobic. The ACLU and over 2,000 lawyers have filed bar complaints in Alabama against this bigot, who has the power to do a great deal of harm to people who don’t have his privileges. Do your part in not allowing bigots like Jeff Sessions be normalized, and do what you can to get him fired.

Defending Immigrants and Refugees

3 Feb

Here are my latest letters to my senators and representatives:

Dear Senator,

Absolutely do not give in to that overtly racist sexual predator neo-Nazi and the racist Klan of Repugnantcans in control of the government. You must not let him do away with DACA. Hundreds of thousands of good people who don’t remember their country of birth and who have settled down in the USA (like our ancestors) are counting on you to go with your conscience. DACA and Dreamers are more important than the egos of Repugnantcans/ white nationalists who so casually and cruelly ruin the lives of people who never harmed them.

 

Dear Senator,

Office of Refugee Resettlement Director Scott Lloyd needs to be fired and replaced with someone who actually cares about refugees. I’m sure he’s a reincarnation of one of Hitler’s Nazi officers, perhaps one who supervised Dachau or Auschwitz. Lloyd takes his extreme anti-abortion stance out on immigrant women, attempting to prevent them from having the healthcare they need. He’s even touting a nonconsensual treatment that is supposed to reverse abortion, further proving that he thinks women should be baby-making machines. No woman, immigrant or otherwise, should be at the mercy of this overt misogynist. He would prefer that women die than that they have safe reproductive health care. His determination to prevent women from controlling their own bodies is sadistic and unconstitutional.

DACA

6 Sep

I seem to be posted a lot of political stuff lately. Here is the body of another letter to my senators and representative:

Ending DACA is a disastrous plan on so many levels. DACA beneficiaries contribute to this country as doctors and lawyers and college students, among other roles. They have lived in the United States, with their families, for most of their lives, and this is their home. I’ve been reading some of their stories online, and it makes no sense to willfully tear them from their lives.

By deporting them, Donald Dump and Jeff Sessions are telling the world that they are xenophobic and racist. Oh, yeah, Dump has already done that, in part by showing that he’s a Nazi sympathizer.

By deporting DACA beneficiaries, the US will lose $400 billion of its GDP. While Donald Dump and Jeff Sessions are obviously heartless monsters, Dump, at least, is a greedy and crass businessman who cares about the economy, if nothing else. Apparently his racism and xenophobia outrank even his obsession with making money. Oh, yeah, he doesn’t actually care about this nation’s economy, just his own bank accounts. The US economy doesn’t matter to him, as long as he and other billionaires remain insanely wealthy and get tax cuts.

This sociopath is gleefully ruining the lives of all DACA beneficiaries, and this gross injustice must be stopped.

Beware of Social Media

15 Jun

I need to take a break from Instagram, probably for about a week. It used to be about cat photos. But now I’m “following” (such a stalker-like word) so many feminist accounts, that it’s about arrogant and willfully ignorant trolls commenting that there is no wage gap, that there are only two genders, and that Muslims are a bunch of terrorists. No, no matter how smugly you pontificate, your delusions and lies aren’t going to come true.

The part about Muslims is especially baffling since the fiasco of an election. Um, the majority of terrorists in the United States are white supremacists who were born in this country. Dump has emboldened them: they’re out of the woodwork and terrorizing this country, even invading elementary schools and killing children of color. Every time the topic of white supremacists comes up, I imagine a force field around my property. I’m only twenty-five percent Ashkenazi (European Jew), and I don’t seriously think many of these bigots would take one look at me and instantly know I’m Jewish—after all, different ethnicities have dark brown hair and dark brown eyes—but it’s terrifying, not only for my family and me but for the whole country. That is not what the country formerly known as the United States should be like. Of course, I realize: it’s Dumplandia now.

Lately I’ve been keeping up on daily news, largely thanks to notifications from The Guardian’s app. And I’ve been reading political/sociological/activist nonfiction, such as this book next to me, Wolf Whistle Politics, edited by Diane Wachtel. It will be good for me to take a little break, for a few days, from bombardments of Dumplandia and read Buddhist books, instead.

Because One Letter isn’t Enough

I also wrote the following to my senators and representative:

White supremacists have been emboldened since the fiasco of an election. They vandalize Jewish cemeteries, leave nooses in Jewish and African American places of culture, invade schools, run over children, and spread hate.

And don’t excuse their behavior because you think they’re mentally ill; this is deliberate and organized hate crime.

Even if they had mental health problems, there’s no excuse for abuse and bigotry and violence. In the U. S., someone who’s psychotic goes on mass shootings. In India, someone who’s psychotic goes on a housecleaning binge. Dumplandia is a violent country. The murderous bigot at the Hollywood Transit Center is a white supremacist, regardless of mental health.

The government—local, state, federal—needs to take these terrorists seriously and lock them up. Please declare a state of emergency. Apathy is collusion.

White Supremacists

Here’s a letter I wrote to my senators and representative:

I’m sure you’re aware that Donald Dump has emboldened aggressive and dangerous bigots across the country. Here in the Pacific Northwest, they have been particularly toxic of late, and not just the one who harassed two teenagers and slit the throats of their defenders. In addition, the KKK has been targeting elementary schools in Oregon and Washington. They threaten schools—including in Portland—and post hateful fliers. They run down children of color with their trucks and killed a Native boy. Reportedly Kung Elementary had to cancel their end of year carnival because of threats.

These terrorists are a threat even to children. They must be stopped. Please declare a state of emergency.
