Those of you who follow me know how I feel about social media, I have a functioning love hate relationship with it. I see how it emboldens people, myself included to share our opinions, thoughts, and lives, however some out there expect others to either fall in line with those thoughts, beliefs and ideals; or on the worst end of the spectrum some believe that they are “bigger, and louder” and therefore can sway others to STFU already. To stop thinking their own thoughts, to stop trying to make essential change in our world. I find the latter fascinating. I never really understood people who have the notion that their opinion is the only right opinion, or that somehow they, because of who they are are entitled to one while others are not.
This happened to Yannick last night. Granted, I get why some people, actually primarily women got their knickers in a knot. The bulk of the people throwing a fit being women I don’t understand, but I’ll get to that later in the post; women who back Trump. Like seriously what is that???
I do understand what people were upset about. Last night, YB posted a photo on his Instagram of the Orange Buffoon tossing paper towels at a group of Puerto Rican people. With his travel schedule, and shooting schedule he didn’t realize that this had been a thing. While he googled it, and read articles on it, his rage mounted. He, like so many of us could not believe that the unfortunate leader of the Free World, would behave in such a manner. He, was stunned, disappointed, and spurred to say something; especially after the girls showed him Eminem’s powerful rap. He called #45 a Douche. And this is the reason why I think many of you lost your minds. Name calling upset you. Which is interesting since your President name calls ALL THE TIME. LIKE ALL THE FUCKING TIME. In fact I don’t think there is a tweet that the man has made where he’s not belittling somebody in some way. Funny, how it’s okay for the man who is PRESIDENT, but not okay for an actor.
I mean I’m assuming that this is what upset, and spurred a few of you to “un-follow” or as a couple of you did, chastise him, and tell him that; “you should stick to what you’re good at, acting, and keep your opinions to yourself.”
Okay, that woman needs to sit down.
You have some nerve. I mean what is that you, who’s name now escapes me, which is really too bad, does for a living? Is it something where you also are meant to be a mute member of society. Also, saying that we have no rights to American politics. Are you fucking kidding me right now??? That ass, who sits in the Oval Office is trying to start a World War. Take that in. A WORLD WAR. The last time I checked I am a human being on planet earth, which means I have every right to my opinion, as does my husband about what the maniac, who somehow became the President does. Furthermore lady, who said we don’t have the right to insert ourselves into American politics; we hold Green Cards, we pay federal taxes, our youngest is an American who very well might marry an American, and therefore give us American grandchildren. We have all the rights in the world to not only have our opinions, but to express them. So why don’t you maybe keep your opinions of how YB should conduct himself to yourself. And if you can’t, if it really upsets you that much, then please un-follow. Go unite yourself with other like minded people. Because here’s some information for all Trump supporters who follow him or me, to take in.
We’re not for #45. For so many reasons; so many that it would put this post over 2000 words.
If we could vote, we never would have, not in a million years, have voted for him.
We don’t respect him simply because he holds the office of President. How we were raised is we give others respect until they prove that they’re no longer worthy of it, and for us that was when he was a reality TV host. Then all the allegations, and silencing of women who claimed sexual assault against him, taking way women’s rights, combined with his blatant abuse of middle class America, no thanks, the man isn’t for us. And the cool thing about life, democracy, and the real free world. Not respecting him, not liking him is our RIGHT; and just because you, for some unknown reason to God do; doesn’t mean we need to as well.
Because you see, we won’t be bullied by Trump supporters to think like you. We won’t be swayed by the threats of losing a few followers to change our minds. It is sad to me, and in fact my husband and I had words last night about how I thought he shouldn’t take down his post. But, I’m the mouthy one of the two of us, and I speak freely about what I see and think about the state of our world. Perhaps I do this because I don’t have as much to “lose” as Yannick feels he might; and I mean this strictly from a hiring position, not lose what people think about him personally. Because let’s be frank, most of you like him because of the roles he plays on TV, not because of the man he is. You don’t know the man he is. You really don’t. He could be a drunk. He could be abusive. He could have a sex addiction problem. You don’t really know him, you just think you do; and that’s fine. He’s doing a job, a job that you love to watch him do. But just because you love what he does, doesn’t mean you get to tell him how to live his life outside of his TV persona. That’s just insane. In fact, it’s an awful lot like how #45 behaves; bullying people into doing as he wishes them to do.
Which is why I’m disappointed that my husband removed the post. But that’s what I’m for. I’m here to tell you, those of you who threatened, who were offended, who thought you would tell him a thing or two are not the reason why he took it down. He took it down out of respect for his career, his future work and because deep down inside my husband is a good, kind man who doesn’t like to name call, unlike me. So here goes, for YB, and for everybody else who cannot stomach the fact that that Douche is still the President of America, please go follow somebody else.
And to the young women who stopped following Yannick for whatever reason after the post, I pray, and hope that you unfollowed because you’re religious and don’t like swearing, or something like that. I truly hope it had everything to do with a reason like that, rather than you support and back #45; because if it is the latter, after all we know about this man, I simply cannot begin to understand why you stand behind him. But here’s the thing, I know well enough about how life works to never ever attempt to change your mind about that. I happen to think your support of him is too bad, but hey, at the end of the day when this all shakes out; some of us will have been on the right side of history and others will not, and what the ramifications of the rabid supporters of his will be, only time will tell.
