An 80-year-old conservative Texan who is far from being shy about his political views sent a list of labels being showered on average, white conservative Americans today…
It seems that lately life has been getting more complicated, and I want to thank those of you who are brave enough to still associate with me regardless of what I am or have become.
The following is a recap of my current identity:
I was born white, which makes me a racist.
I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which makes me a fascist.
I am heterosexual, which 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 Christian, which makes me an infidel.
I believe in and support the Second Amendment, which makes me a right-wing extremist.
I oppose Hillary Clinton for President, which makes me an oppressor of women.
I am older than 50, which makes me useless.
I think and I reason and doubt much of what the main stream media tells me, which makes me a reactionary.
I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, which makes me a xenophobe.
I value safety; therefore I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right-wing extremist.
I have much respect and love for Israel, which makes me a hater of Islam.
I denounce radical Islamic terrorism and believe refugees from Muslim countries should be properly vetted before being admitted to the United States, which makes me an Islamophobe.
I believe in legal, lawful immigration, which makes me a bigot.
I believe in hard work, fair pay, and compensation based on individual merit, which makes me anti-social.
I acquired a good education with no debt at graduation, which makes me some kind of odd underachiever.
I believe in the defense and protection of the homeland by all citizens, which makes me a militarist.
Please help me come to terms with this, because I‘m not sure who I am anymore?!
Oh…. and the newest problem – I’m not sure which bathroom I should use.
Our country is in great need of help.
