Some teens (high school students) protested at the Donald Trump rally in Columbus last week. Videos showed The Donald ordering them to be taken out (it happens to protesters, i have no beef with that except that he said they were so rude and i laugh… talk about the pot callin’ the kettle black!). i did take offense to the rally attendees who surrounded the teens – they shouted curse words, they said the kids “should be shot” , etc.
i don’t often comment on youtube videos, but i did then… politely. i also linked to another vantage point of the same incident – also a youtube video – when another poster asked about it.
Someone (with a screen name that combined one of Jesus’ disciples with a part of America where racism flourishes) replied to my post by saying…
“waw bat, shut up you faggot”
Okay… let’s let that sink in.
i was curious about the person behind the statement. i didn’t take it personally because, well, because it was ridiculous. i didn’t reply to it, because… well… why? Just sheer unadulterated stupidity. Still, i wondered what sort of person posts something like that? And then i went down the rabbit hole. Yikes. You think i’d learn. i clicked on the dude’s name to see what other sorts of videos he follows and comments he makes.
And then… further down that dark and musty hole i fell… ah… David Duke videos.
i sighed. i viewed one entire video (fifteen minutes of my life i’ll never get back) because i really wanted to know what good old Davie was up to these days. Well, for starters, he’s had plastic surgery (fairly well done, though, i must say) and some body building (way to keep up the meat-suit, Dave) and there is a gallant fight over his baldness (apparently he’s not okay with losing his hair… okay… his choice) but from his mouth spewed the same hate and hyperbole.
i sighed again.
i sighed a lot.
And then i took a mental health break… and so i leave the same here for you. Imagine…
