‘Friendship Ender Email’
I just got a forwarded email from a wealthy, healthy & successful Maga ‘friend’.
I’ve decided not to respond to him. I honestly can’t unless I’m ready to end our friendship, because I doubt he’ll like what I have to say.
Instead I’ll use it as insight into a twisted Maga mind and the people who share his opinions.
Be warned, it’s as dark, nasty & greedy as trump himself.
The slightly abridged email from Maga starts off like this...
“Try to forward...we, the 'somewhat olders' are the ones dealing with this.. It is more than obvious.”
The only thing obvious about this email is that some people embrace their own privilege while casually dismissing how it doesn’t apply to the rest of us.
Robert A. Hall, 73
“Except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce and a six-month period when I was between jobs, but job-hunting every day, I've worked, hard, since I was 18.”
A lot of us have, Robert. It’s dismissive af to assume otherwise.
“Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and haven't called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am.”
“Given the economy, there's no retirement in sight, and I'm tired. Very tired.”
Aren’t we fucking all, Robert? Guess who’s currently responsible for our economy?
“I'm tired of being told that I have to "spread the wealth" to people who don't have my work ethic.”
What about all those who don’t have the same privileges you do? They’re tired too.
How many days have you worked in a field for minimum wage?
“I'm tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.”
We get it. You hate lazy people, not on your dime, etc. but whatever happened to the Golden Rule?
“I'm tired of being told that Islam is a "Religion of Peace," when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family "honor"
Just wait til ya hear about all those rapey Catholic priests, Bob.
Honestly, it goes on for another few paragraphs of lies about the Muslim community, blaming the actions of a few on an entire religion.
So does that make him Rapey Robert then? Yes, it does.
I’ll spare you the rest of that and pick up with his next rant.
“I'm tired of being told that, out of "tolerance for other cultures," we must let Saudi Arabia use our oil money to fund mosques and madrassa Islamic schools to preach hate...”
Then you’ll hate to learn we funded SA to fight ISIL. Who will you hate most?
“I'm tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate.”
Tell that to your grandkids when they’re fighting the World Water Wars or dying from hunger and disease, ya douche.
“I'm tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses while they tried to fight it off?”
This logic is particularly disgusting given the epidemic loss of life due, in large part, to government sanctioned big pharma and intentional lack of oversight in poor neighborhoods.
Let me guess, Robert’s a conservative Christian...
“I'm tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of both parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we All know they think their only mistake was getting caught.
I'm tired of people with a sense Of entitlement, rich or poor.”
Well then STFU, my privileged friend!
I hope you don’t live to see the suffering your stupidity will cause them. They’ll hate you.
“There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on!
“I'm 73 and I'm tired.”
Guess what?!? We’re Americans and we’re sick and tired of ignorant, complaining bigots like you, Robert!
