Zinnia Jones on the Danger of Trump’s Presidency : Our Strength (Life Versus the Void) - Video
I wish it hadn’t come to this, but Zinnia Jones has a right to be angry. I would also add that she should be upset with the Bernie Bros who insisted that they wouldn’t vote for Hillary, since she wasn’t Bernie. I was and still am a Bernie Sanders supporter, but I supported Hillary Clinton, becouse I realized, that although I would have prefered Sanders, it was far too dangerous to risk a Trump presidency.
Now the worst thing has happened, and people like Jones, and other marginalized minority groups in our society have it especially rough. Now I wish I had done more to support Hillary Clinton. Just look at the rise in hate crimes and general acts of bigotry since Trump won. Just look at the people who Trump has already appointed to key positions in his administration. Just look at the joy of white supremicists at the prospect of one of their own advising the president. Add to that, the Trump team’s talk of a Muslim registry, and the anti LGBT, pro theocracy agenda people in the GOP right now. Jones is correct, this a terrifying time for our country, not just for people like her, but for all decent, Americans. I really hope that any remotely reasonable and rational person who supported Trump, even for a moment, comes to see what a mistake that was very soon.
