My Changing America

I was born White, which now, whether I like it or not, makes me a RACIST.
I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today’s standards, makes me a fascist.
I am heterosexual, which according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobic.
I am a Christian, which now labels me as an infidel.
I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which now makes me a member of the ‘vast gun lobby’.
I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me, which must make me a reactionary.
I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, which makes me a xenophobe.
I value my safety and that of my family and I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a ‘right-wing extremist’.
I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual’s merits, which today makes me an anti-Socialist.
I believe in the defense and protection of the homeland for and by all citizens, which now makes me a militant.
Recently, a sick old woman called me and my friends “a basket of deplorable s”.
I need to thank all my friends for sticking with me through these abrupt, new found challenges in my life and my thinking!
I just can’t imagine or understand what’s happened to me so quickly! Funny . . . it’s all just taken place over the previous 8 years!
And if all this crap wasn’t enough to deal with, I’m now afraid to go into either restroom!
