007 • A Rant on Humans (2 of 3) I feel like people are fucking bored on this planet. This country is fucked up. [As every country is, but America is a special territory.] And, I don’t wanna be here in a couple of years when you are going to start seeing some major and minor riots in this country – guaranteed. _________ I personally don’t believe that my purpose on this planet is to educate people about their biases, or their bigotry, or discrimination. Like, that is not why I’m fucking on this planet. I’m here to enjoy the little bit of life that is granted to each one of us, and to do a little bit of goodness before I’m dead. _________ At the end of the day, anyone who is a[n] [overt] bigot – [I’m] specifically [referring to] color-centric bigotry – you are not right up here. [points to head] No matter how much you think you are. You can be the nicest person on the planet – most bigots that I know personally in-and-out of my family are some of the nicest people, [with] some of the most beautiful smiles that you can think of. And then when they start spewing their bigotry, they become monsters. _________ So, I don’t really have a lot of patience for bigots and closet bigots anymore in my life. I’ve had a lot of patience for a little over two decades. And at the end of the day, from what I’ve known of the bigots that I’ve been friends with (and I use that term [friends] loosely), there was a lot of childhood issues. I’m not kidding. _________ That’s what struck me about the bigots and the closet bigots that I knew – serious childhood issues that were not taken care of. And somehow, they’re using that to formulate this irrational hatred because they’re bored; because they are hurt; because they are traumatized; because they are angry; because they think they’re the shit. I don’t know – so many reasons. And so, you know – it is what it is.
Samuel Oliver Bruno Has been in Sanctuary at CityWell church for a year. During that time he has been working through the immigration legal process. He was told this morning he had a biometrics appointment to be fingerprinted, but it was a setup. The moment he walked in they immediately arrested him. Not in reaction to anything, but they were waiting for him to show up to detain him. We blocked the car for two hours to try and stop the deportation. Unfortunately, the Morrisville Chief of Police, Patrice Andrews, made a conscious decision to cooperate with ICE, though it is not required. She helped ICE out and aided their agenda by working to arrest peaceful protestors. About a dozen or more protesters were arrested along with Samuels son. This is America. There is legitimate fear in Samuels deportation. His family in Mexico has received death threats. It is not safe for him to return. His wife is sick, this family needs their husband and father. Our country is failing to provide asylum and refuge to those who desperately need it. The “legal process” is a joke, it’s an actual scam. A racist, xenophobic, patriarchal, and systematized scam. Shame, shame, shame. #thisisamerica #fuckice #chingalamigra #abolishice #morrisvillepolicedepartment #morrisvillepolice
