Today I’m caring less about frugality than I am about American citizens who just elected a sexual aggressor who courts racists, mocks the disabled, insults minorities, wants LGBT people to lose their hard earned rights, and is proud in his goal to dismantle a health care system that has allowed millions to no longer worry about their pre-existing conditions.
I am numb, in shock, angry, close to tears and flabbergasted with the election result.
I normally steer very clear of writing about politics on the blog, as I want this space to be a welcoming space for all. But when the former leader of the Klu Klux Klan crows that “This is one of the most exciting nights of my life -> make no mistake about it, our people have played a HUGE role in electing Trump!” I simply can’t sit down to write another blog post about a garbage picked scarf.
Will I lose readers over this blog post? Probably. But that’s okay. I refuse to sit back and pretend this didn’t happen. I’m not going to watch baby hedgehog videos to tamp down my anger, and I’m sure as hell going to have my say.
So if you feel the need to no longer follow The Non-Consumer Advocate because you support Trump’s hateful values, I’m okay with that. I support the rights of our immigrant neighbors, beloved minorities, the LGBT community, the differently abled and I present zero apology for this stance.
Tomorrow I will probably blog about frugality and simple living, but today that seems like a hedgehog video.
