    Am just catching up with your blog and found this. This really summarizes it, doesn’t it? I think that we are part of the problem only insofar as while we have been concerning ourselves with social justice for minorities, we have forgotten the non-minorities left behind by the global economy. But I take no responsibility for the bringing of the white supremacists into the mainstream, for the hatred that has been fomented, for the violence that has been loosed, for the shortsightedness that would destroy our economy, our marginalized, and our world. I am trying to be hopeful, but I fear that this administration is going to be absolutely catastrophic in the hands of “the malignant and the fools”. I am emotionally distancing myself from people I know who voted for this when they knew better because they believed to the very core of their being the 30 years of lies that have been fomented about Hillary Clinton. As a friend of mine remarked “this must be the first time in history that the KKK, the KGB, and the FBI have been working to elect the same candidate.” There is no possibility of having “meaningful discourse” with people who espouse hate, fear, and destruction of the environment, to weigh in on Mary Helen’s post. For them I have only absolute disgust and scorn and I will fight them tooth and nail. As another friend of mine posted the week after the election “I have sent contributions to Planned Parenthood, the NAACP, and will continue to support financially every other group that is mobilized to fight these people, because wearing a safety pin doesn’t cut it.” I hate to answer viciousness with viciousness, but I am not a “turn the other cheek” person.

    So discouraging but I wish I could learn how to have any meaningful
    discourse with the people who espouse hate, fear and destruction of
    our environment. How can we come together when we can’t agree about
    issues that are so fundamental? Means I must be part of the problem as well and that is disconcerting. Thanks for your post.
