A bit late posting this, but I actually wrote it on July 1st. Text first, followed by image version for formatting.
Rant for the 4th of July
The Press is the enemy. Fake News is the enemy. Fact checkers are the enemy. Hollywood barely ranks behind teachers as the enemy. Queers are the enemy. (Bisexual myself, I suppose I'm half an enemy.) North Korea's the enemy--no, wait, make that Syria--okay, now North Korea andSyria and Iran and Yemen and other far-off nations like Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico are the enemy. The Nobel committee is the enemy. The enemy of my president is my enemy, which makes sand traps my enemy. Bloody-handed Hillary's the enemy, still walking free. Obama's the enemy, still pulling strings. Our government is the enemy from whom only our government can save us. Islam is the enemy. Secular humanism is the enemy. The teachings of Jesus are the enemy. Brown-skinned children in families fleeing want and danger are the enemy, and so are people who call a cage a cage. Enemies, enemies, endlessly enemies, a swarming infestation of those who lust for our destruction. They're rabid beasts, don't forget. Compassion is collusion. Mercy abets murder. Empathy's a traitor. The only thing we have to trust is fear itself.
