1. I'm a red-neck country girl. I grew up with the KKK & the Christian conservative party stomping on the rights of women & POC.
2. They think college is liberal hell, and anyone who carries a briefcase & don't work with their hands is a liberal elite.
3. They condemn people who wish to listen to classical music or take in a night at the museum.
4. Many don't want to change with the times and continue to vote against their own worth to keep things just like they were in the 1950s.
5. The jobs are drying up, the hospitals are leaving, most of the young generation moves away, yet, they still won't accept a new life.
6. When given a chance at a new life (education, new tech job, or help) they yell that it's the G-Damn liberals trying to change them.
7. Many of them are on welfare & food stamps, but scream bloody murder if they see a POC take a knee at the football game.
8. Many are so worn down from the old way of doing things, they can barely hold on to the farms,
9. but will scream & hollar when someone offers to teach them to grow hemp.
10. Many (not all) will try to bite their own nose off every day before they go take a class in organic farming or even a new way to farm.
11. The factory workers can't understand why more factories won't come to their town, but they refuse to go to the classes the owners need.
12. These are the same people who force 15 yr olds to marry their rapist, who deny POC jobs, who cheered with Heather was killed.
13. These are the people who would let a black family starve before sharing a table with them & then leaning on the Bible for redemption.
14. People who claim to know Jesus, but turn around and applaud when children and poor families are denied health care.
15. YOU want ME to reach out to these type of people? No, Sir. I will not.
WHY? -- I escaped these people with barely my own life.
16. There are thousands more of women just like me. There are millions of POC who are stuck living in this type of world.
17. They are stuck in a world w/ no one helping them & no one speaking for them. Yet, you want me to reach out to the people who hurt them?
18. Sir, The country kids who survived, like me, the red neck farm girls and boys who left, are all these people have to save them.
19. For the people who are sick, living in poverty, and the abused, we are the only voice they have, but you want us to talk to the abusers?
20. Sir, I don't know you. I've never met you. But you're out of your G-damn mind.
I know what the abusers want. More freedom to abuse.
21. So, I'm going to tell you like I tell every Republican politician, screw the right.
22. I've listened to their holier-than-thou shit my whole life. It's their turn to listen to me. / end
