As the headline says, I have Republican friends, co-workers, neighbors and so on. I got added to one of their message lists, and they had quite the reaction when I celebrated Biden’s win. I don't personally know everyone on the list but they are all White and I am reasonably sure that each one has at least an undergraduate degree. Here are their reactions to me specifically:
Did you forget your white too?
Food Stamps are meant to be be for people who are down on their luck temporarily . . . they shouldn’t be a lifestyle.
We have black in us too,
That’s why I have rhythm.
And a big penis.
Che and Castro Socialism is here.
So people are supposed to be penalized for being financially successful?
[Replying to above]. Wait . . . I am suppose to be penalized for being white?
So let’s board up the city and prepare for anarchy. Cause a sanctuary city Where police are water bucketed And looting is tolerated is the America I want.
[Also a video that says “Training for the next BLM demonstration” that shows a black man running on a treadmill with Apple products under his arms]
For what it is worth, a couple of these posts were from adult women. All of them are relatively prosperous to wealthy, and would look quite normal at a PTA meeting. Oh, and these folks are from Blue State New York.
There is no hope with these Republicans. We simply have to out vote them, every time.
