I used to think I was just a regular guy, but I was born white, which now, whether I like it or not, makes me a racist & responsible for slavery.
I am a fiscal & moral conservative, which by today’s standards, makes me a fascist because I support myself.
I went to high school, worked my way through college, got a degree and was regularly employed until retirement, but apparently I am here not because I earned it, but because of white priveledge.
I am heterosexual, which according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobe.
I am non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working class & ally of big business.
I am not a Muslim, which now labels me as an infidel.
I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which makes me a member of the vast NRA whacko gun lobby.
I am older than 65 & retired, making me a useless old man who doesn’t understand younger people.
I think & I reason with logic, so I doubt what main stream media tells me, which makes me a reactionary.
I am proud of my heritage & our inclusive American culture, making me a xenophobe.
I value my safety & that of my family, & I appreciate the police & the legal system, making me a right-wing, cop loving extremist.
I believe in hard work, fair play, & fair compensation according to each individual’s merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist.
I believe our system guarantees freedom and rewards of effort – not freedom of subsidies which must make me a borderline sociopath.
I believe in the defense & protection of America for & by all citizens, now making me a militant.
I am proud of our flag, what it stands for, and the many who died to let it fly so I stand & salute during our National Anthem, taking me back where I started – I must be a racist.
Please help me come to terms with the new me because I’m just not sure who I am anymore because i don’t score any intersectionality points!
I thank my friends for sticking with me through these abrupt, new found changes to my thinking!
I just can’t imagine or understand what’s happened to me so quickly!
Funny – it all took place over the last 8 to10 years!
If all this nonsense wasn’t enough to deal with, I don’t know which restroom to use, and I gotta go, really bad!
