I am tired of identity politics.
Women who get abortions are murderers; not human beings making a difficult decision who need the love and support of people around them.
Immigrants are rapists and criminals; not human beings trying to improve their lives and do the best they can for themselves and their families.
Queer people are vile sinners; not human beings who love and are loved in return.
Corporations are People.
Poor people are lazy freeloaders who made the decision to have less; not human beings who need care and support.
Black people are reverse racists who need to get over the fact they were once enslaved; not human beings suffering under systematic oppression.
All Police Officers are Inherently Good.
Survivors of Gun Violence are whiners who need to shut up; not human beings who should be listened to.
Educators are spoiled brats whose main form of compensation should be the privilege of teaching children; not human beings who are overworked, understaffed and who often can’t provide for their own children without a second job.
The Rich are Overtaxed.
I am so tired of identity politics.
I am so tired of politics that try to make me see the individual identities of human beings other than myself.
