if i can't escape my fate, then i will make myself a story

so the representative for my district just uh, voted in favor of keeping the confederate flag legal. i'm disgusted.
i've been on this soap box before, and i'll gladly get on it again. i don't care what end of the political spectrum you're on. if you're doing anything with the confederate flag beyond disrespecting it in some fashion, you're a whole traitor. you are flying a treasonous flag that stands for EVERYTHING america is not. you are supporting the killing of american citizens. you are supporting years of unfathomable oppression and violence towards poc. you need to stop and reevaluate your life choices or get out of this country. real americans don't stand for hatred.
honestly, if you support anything related to the confederate states of america, unfollow me now. i'd prefer to not have your support. please and thanks.
robert e lee is not your role model; he is a criminal who should be buried in a pauper's grave, if buried at all.
so you pompous, homophobic and racist fascist jon, my joke of a representative, i can't wait to vote you out of office in 2022. go stick your head back in the sand and keep calling the rest of us sheep. at least i can tolerate other human beings. this piece is for you!
i've been fairly quiet on the current events in america, beyond liking pieces that i agree with (speaking of which, contrarian and anha have both been working hard to spread information and links that can make a difference in the BLM movement; i strongly advise you to check them out!). i've been doing things in my community and on a personal level, but for the most part, my thoughts are not organized enough to share in writing. regardless, let it be known where i stand now:
black lives matter.
