Unrepentant Deplorable

I used to think I was just a regular gal. But 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 homophobe. I am non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working class and an ally of big business. I am a follower of Jesus Christ as LORD and Savior, which now labels me as an infidel and a bigot. I believe in the 2nd amendment, which now makes me a member of the vast gun lobby. I am older than 55 and retired, which makes me a useless old woman. I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me, which makes me 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. Please help me come to the terms with the new me……because I am just not sure who I am anymore! I would like to thank everyone who has stuck with me through these abrupt, new found changes in my life and my thinking. I just cannot imagine or begin to understand what’s happened to me so quickly! Funny, it’s all just taken place over the last 7-8 years. And as if all this wasn’t enough to deal with……..I’m now afraid to go into either public bathroom!
