My Outrage

Recently I’ve see and hear the phrase, “If you’re not outraged then you’re not paying attention.” I’ve seen the outrage and even rage of many “minority” people who are very upset about what is happening in the US today. I feel their outrage and agree with much that they have to say.

After the terrible violence and hate in Charlottesville, I was in shock. I had thoughts and feelings but no actual words to express how I felt. It has taken a week for me to actually get to the point of being able to express my feelings. Throughout the week, listening to and reading the tweets of 45 and his insanity. I myself, a white male, cannot call him “president.” He is not my president. I didn’t vote for him and I have absolutely no respect for him. There have been several presidents within my lifetime and some I didn’t agree with all their policies but I still respected them. I would never say what I am about to say in my outrage to any previous president on my lifetime, Fuck you, Trump.

To see the hate and division in the US now brings to mind that we are probably playing right into the hands of Putin, and a possible hidden agenda of 45 and his, possibly not insanity but intentionally dividing the country out of his loyalty to Putin. Putin is probably enjoying the sight and sounds of the US being torn apart.

As for where I stand and what outrages me.

I am outraged by feelings of hate toward any being, whether human or not. Yet, I heard myself say something contradictory to this statement. I heard myself say that I “hate” the white supremacists, nationalists, Nazis, racists, sexists. Okay, these are most of the words that everyone says is appropriate to describing these people. “Fuck you white plague bastards who think they are better than everyone else.” That sounds more like me.

I am outraged when I hear that women are treated without respect and their healthcare is determined by others, usually white men. For some reason I get crazy outraged when I hear of people calling breastfeeding in public lewd and obscene. Fuck you, people and your supposed “moral values.” It’s fucking natural you assholes.

I am outraged that racism still exists. I am so tired of humans dividing themselves by the color of their skin. I hate that I have to say things like, “I know some great black people.” or, “I know some great Latin people.” I won’t say it because they are people to me and I care about them as I would care about any other people who are worthy of my caring about them. I don’t care about the fucking white plague that ingests the world seeking complete domination over all other people that they declare as inferior.

As time goes I still have difficulty with declaring myself a human. Humans can do such beautiful things but they are also the most destructive being on the face to this planet. It is so strange to me that the only things that can stop the destructive humans are other humans. I feel such outrage at humans who think they are superior to nature and the Earth and all the beautiful beings upon this planet.

This is the beginning of my outrage, which may increase if I see more humans doing terrible things to other humans and all beings on this planet. I can no longer sit passively because this only causes me to feel helpless. It is time for me to stand up and say FUCK YOU!!!!, to what outrages me.

I might hate many of the people who are seeking greater division of the US and the world but I will not succumb to violence but, I won’t scold those who do come to violence while standing up against the white plague who think they are superior to other beings.

  1. Trump or USA don’t seem to comprehend fully that they are at a position where the world sees what that do as good revolution always so if there is hate in the USA there will be ripple effect in my country too

    1. I can understand what you say about how the US affects other countries. If I could advise other countries I would say they shouldn’t look to the US for guidance as long as the US has the current leadership. We in the US are going through a very trying time. Many people really don’t know what the future of the US is but they hope for the best. I would suggest that other countries find their own way rather than look to the US, it is very crazy here. I personally am ashamed of the US and, even though I was born here, I don’t necessarily claim being of the country. I personally have never looked to the US for guidance. I just observe the insanity and wonder why I am here.

      1. What you say is so true. When I hear from people from other countries, my first thought is to apologize. Then I remember that I didn’t vote for monster Trump so I have nothing to apologize for. I wish the US was such a terrible empire. It is such a beautiful country if we were to take away the government and the economic ideology. The mountains are beautiful. The lakes are beautiful. Even the deserts are beautiful. Sadly they all become ugly as wealthy companies come in and tear it all apart in the name of profit. It’s like loving a beautiful painting yet having to watch others paint ugly graffiti all over the painting until it the painting is no longer and all that can be seen is ugly graffiti.
