Everyone Is an A-Hole

Everyone Is an A-Hole

Let me just take off my dainty white gloves and set down my teacup for a second to politely say that it seems like everyone in this country is a raging asshole. Either that, or they are criminally insane and should probably be taken down with a lithium blow dart. Cops raided a gay bar in Atlanta last week.

My mom says, and I agree with her, that all this over-the-top sexism and racism we’re bombarded with right now is just a bunch of hot air escaping from the flatulent dying bodies of a bunch of old fucked up white guys whose power to constantly fuck everyone over is waning. I’m paraphrasing, my mom doesn’t actually talk like that. But you get the idea.

I’m disgusted by just about everyone right now except for Jimmy Carter. Carter, I like. Carter keeps reminding us that racism still exists even though the White House is like, “No, no, all those teaparty signs saying ‘Send Obama back to Africa’ and crazy Congressmen thinking it’s OK to yell at the POTUS, well, that’s just jokes!” Of course the White House can’t talk about racism, people would freak out. But Jimmy Carter can say whatever he wants.

There’s a Jimmy Carter center in my neighborhood and I’m going to visit it this weekend just because I like him. Mr. Carter in case you read my blogs, call me. I’d like to make you dinner.

These are dark times, I’m telling you. Just ask Nancy Pelosi, she had a breakdown the other day. There’s so much bile being spewed everywhere right now, she said it reminded her of the late seventies in San Francisco where San Francisco Mayor George Moscone and openly gay San Francisco City Supervisor Harvey Milk were assassinated.

You know that 20% that thought Bush was great right up until the end? Well those nutbags are all hopped up on Glen Beck and running amok. And they are not all just creeps out on parole, lots of them are legislators, cops, Congressmen, Mayors, etc.

Cops raided a gay bar in Atlanta last week. Thirty cops stormed the bar, made 60 gay men lie face-down on the floor, screamed obscenities at them, said sweet things like “This was more fun than busting n***** on crack” and “This was fun, we should bust faggot bars more often.” They held them all for an hour, searched them, took their wallets and cell phones and when they couldn’t find anything illegal, arrested the bar owners and some go-go dancers for having the wrong kind of license.

It’s all related. Congressman Joe Wilson yelling “You lie” at the president and subsequently becoming a right-wing hero, the birthers, the tea party signs with egregious misspellings, cops raiding gay bars, these sound like disparate activities but it’s the lunatic fringe banding together. They just can’t believe a black man is president. That’s what it comes down to. But we do have a black president and to them that means the world is against them. Joe Redneck is afraid the blacks, the feminists and the faggots are coming for him.

I’d love to say we are, but sadly it’s going to take a lot more change to affect the balance of power in this country. And I hate to imagine the kind of violence that’s gonna go down when we actually do make some progress.
