The Fringe Has Hijacked the Country from Middle America

You did this to us

Congratulations, you idiots on the alt-left and alt-right. You, the fringe, have hijacked the country from the people in middle America.

To the DudeBros on the left who are thankful that you’ve helped the populace to “wake up” to corruption in the establishment so we are more motivated to vote – uh, thanks – but it will be hard to snooze amid the sound of mass deportations in the streets and neighborhoods of America, all to rid ourselves of Mexican restaurants, roofers, and landscapers. I probably won’t be dozing while we put boots on the ground in Syria, or when Russia invades the Baltics, or when Putin deploys a tactical nuke. I won’t be sleeping through the collapse of the global economy after all the banking regulations are scrapped. Thanks, you really got our attention by pointing out that we don’t have the transcript to the Goldman Sachs speech. You sure showed us!

Gloom and doom, you say? Well, how do you destroy the New World Order and the established power structures without risking instability, uncertainty, and fear? Aren’t those the things that typically cause horrible things to occur? Do you not realize that incremental change could be also called “stabilized change”? That people without governing experience (like Russian plant Jill Stein) probably cannot govern well? That allowing a right-wing demagogue into the Presidency might be a catalyst for the end of our democracy rather than a strategy to mobilize the left?​ That demonizing America for all the “bad things” she has done and comparing our government to those of dictators and despots around the world is the fucking opposite of patriotic?

You have shit on America and have gambled with the lives of your fellow citizens because America isn’t perfect. You ensured our loss in the General Election and if everything goes to hell, you are responsible.

As for those on the far-right: You do not represent the whole of America either. Your policies consistently fly in the face of what the majority of people actually want, except for lowering taxes, stopping gun control, and abolishing the Individual Mandate, all of which can have disastrous consequences when you actually think them through and consult some experts. But who needs experts when you have become purposely ignorant to facts and purposely unsympathetic to the poor, all in the pursuit of Tea Party purity? And yeah, you did win all the local, state, and national offices under Obama, but you achieved it through lies, obstructionism, and dirty tricks.

Therefore, you are despicable scumbags and I will never seek to understand you. I will only seek to make you lose elections and I will mock you until the day I die, because you are not simply stupid. You are purposely stupid.

So thanks, members of the alt-left and alt-right. You stole our country by handing the Executive branch to a would-be dictator who cares nothing about regular people, who might not just spill the apple cart of America but drive it off the edge of a cliff. You helped elect a man who is working on behalf of Vladimir Putin, whose goal is to destabilize the West and inspire autocratic governments across the globe. And you did it out of spite.

Meanwhile, the rest of us in the middle were starting to enjoy the low unemployment, booming stock market and lack of a major ground war.

Thanks.
