The Department of Homeland Security now wants to compile a list of all journalists, bloggers, and “media influencers.” In particular, they’re keeping tabs on journalists, bloggers, and media influencers who oppose or criticize our Dear Leader Trump. The DHS was created to combat terrorism, not punish people for exercising their First Amendment rights. But in Trump’s America, journalists and bloggers who are critical of him are terrorists. So I guess that makes me a terrorist.
Soon they’ll come knocking at my door at 4 AM and issue me an armband identifying me as a “dissident” and then ship me off in the darkness to a Trumpian concentration camp. It’s not a matter of if but when — unless I can find a way to escape this country before that happens. Or unless democracy survives (which is definitely possible — I refuse to stop being optimistic, as hard as it is at times).
One thing’s for sure. I’m not going to shut up or let them win. I’ll spit in their faces as they cart me off. I’ve had enough of that sort of abusive crap all my life from other narcissists and sociopaths. I’d rather die than be their bitch.
Big Brother has arrived.
