Hey Hey Hey
CNN, whose coverage has been excellent and beautiful, have called Pennsylvania for Biden and while we reel in shock at Trump’s growth of vote and his expansion of support with black males, hispanics and the uneducated, while we look at the deadlock in the Senate and the Republican gains in the House, while we try to calculate the damage Trump’s Presidency has caused – at least, right now we can gleefully declare a resounding scream of joy that this fucking orange tumour of a human being has been fired by the people of America!
Thank you America!
His hatred, his spite, his bewildering malice, his obscene revenge fantasies – it’s fucking over!
His making black people, Muslim people, women, children fearful for their day to day existence was an abomination of power and a dark moment when America could have plunged into a Crypto-fascist state.
His disgraceful Tax cuts for corporations, his rolling back of climate change legislation, his horrific Pandemic incompetence – all of it goes with him into the trash bin of history.
His Qanon conspiracy theories, his anti science, his gleeful ignorance.
It. Is. All. Fucking. Over!
It feels like we have all been in a collective abusive relationship with this narcissistic freak.
This is a moment of genuine global relief, that Trump’s malevolence has not been rewarded and celebrated by the majority, but has been repudiated by people of good conscience.
Let’s be clear – this spontaneous explosion of euphoric joy that is erupting on the streets of America right now is because we are seeing the beginning of the end of Trump – no one is celebrating Biden with his tepid nothingness policies that will do little to heal the damage caused – but criticism of Democratic incrementalism is far less important right now than the demise of the Trump nightmare.
We have closed a bleak chapter brothers and sisters and I am so much more emotionally relieved than I realised. We all carried a toxic wound while he was in power, it feels like all the pus is being squeezed from our souls by him losing.
It is so difficult to pin point one moment that managed to sum up his hostile venom, but the revelation that over 500 children separated at the border couldn’t find their parents managed to represent Trump’s animosity best.
I don’t blame his supporters, I understand they have been failed by the two party system, they have been failed by neoliberalism, they have been failed by an America that rewards the corporates first, they are lost, they are frightened and they are easily led. For them we must extend the hand of fellowship and basic human decency.
But for the vile creature who twisted their resentment and hijacked their pain, fuck him.
The only thing you can say that is positive about Trump is that he didn’t start any American war. That’s it.
Trump needs to go now, and let the rest of the planet heal.
PS – We would all like to apologise in advance for the country Biden starts bombing after his inauguration in January.
