What is your vote saying?
If your daughter/sister/mother was sexually assaulted, would you vote their molester/rapist into the white house?
If your race was being heavily discriminated against, would you vote someone into office who contributed to the problem?
If your right to love, marry, and start a family was at risk, would your vote go to someone who does not support your lifestyle?
If your family was being ripped apart, deported unfairly, or kept in detention centers, would you vote for the man trying to eject you and your loved ones?
What makes all these things worth it for you? Money? Taxes? The right to bear arms?
I honestly want to know why anything would take priority for your vote over human rights.
Maybe it’s easy for you to justify, because you aren’t personally affected. But that’s incredibly selfish, and you are voting for hate.
Nothing like the above should be worth your vote when huge groups of people are suffering in so many ways.
Think about what your vote says. If you vote for Trump, here is what you’re saying:
You’re okay with women being sexually harassed. You’re okay with black people being racially profiled and harmed unfairly. You’re okay with LGBTQ+ rights being taken away. You’re okay with Mexicans and other non-white races being deported unjustly. You’re okay with injustice and collusion in your government. You’re okay with bullying and immature name calling representing our country. You’re okay with hate existing in America.
Think about your female, black, queer, trans, and immigrant friends and loved ones. Would they be proud of you?
This isn’t about your political party. It’s simply about human rights and equality.
Please think long and hard about where your vote is going this year. Think about what your vote is truly saying. Think about what side of history you want to be on.
Thanks for reading.
