Hillary Hater

"America is not ready to give a woman that much power"

On November 9th, 2016; the day after the recent Presidential election in the U.S. 
I posted a Facebook post that said  

"Hillary's biggest fault is that she is a woman"


I was deeply saddened by America's decision to elect Donald Trump and it's clear to me now that whatever progress has been made by Barack Obama in his 8 years in the chair; will be flushed down the toilet by a new Republican guard and that everyone will suffer.

It's a splintered political party recreated in turmoil, greed, back-stabbing chaos and moronic malevolence - that fundamentally has no interest in "making America great again", but more-so segregating and dividing the nation (the world).  Now his electorate eagerly anticipates action on all his promises, like children whose parents promised them ice-cream after Sunday school ... particularly the big six: The Wall, Lock Up Hillary, Deport the Illegals, Seal off America to Muslims, Repeal Obamacare, and force companies to Bring Back Those Jobs from Overseas (Trump's signature clothing line is made in China - ah what does that tell you)?  Let the games begin!  Beyond all this, it is also clear to me that sexism was a very real part of the outcome and that yes, Hillary lost for one BIG reason, the biggest of them all ...

Because she is a woman.

The Facebook post brought about mostly agreement (by about 9 women and 3 men who 'liked' my post) but it also brought about a severe reaction - specifically amongst certain men who vehemently disagreed with my position with a myriad of real facts about what's real  here. 

I posted it knowing that there would be disagreement (even welcoming it); points of view that could bring about insight into human nature and why?  I wasn't expecting the anger though.


It became very obvious to me as the thread unfolded and they piously pounded their vapid assertions; that they (like millions of others) righteously HATE Hillary Clinton and were clearly enjoying her demise - callously orchestrated by Donald Trump (who they say they didn't like either BUT quietly favoured him regardless).  Realizing I was tapping into a bigger picture.

For me, her loss has really very little to do with her many improprieties - her lies, manipulation and questionable ethics.  Her flagrant disregard for communication protocols or even her own malignant agenda - that yes, were even unacceptable to me (even though he is guilty of all of the above X 10 - irrelevant/doesn't matter)!  "Stick to the point", one guy "friend" sternly told me (like I'm being redirected to stay focused).  Well, this IS my point!  It's called hypocrisy.   

No it became painfully evident, that just by throwing the gender card out there, that there was/is a hidden agenda at play which boils down to this: People, even FB friends (men and women) in North America (by and large), hate Hillary Clinton because she is a woman ...

Who wants way more than she deserves


You see, there are certain women who look right and others who don't.  My theory is that if you're going to be an influential woman in America; particularly one who wants to be in a position of power, you still need to look and act a certain way or else you simply won't be taken seriously.  Hillary didn't fit, not pretty anymore (if ever), that forced/calculated smile, those ugly fucking pant-suits (hiding her fat ass) and that harsh/scratchy voice - ok, those disgusting glasses she wears.  What's up with her (old woman) hair?  Yuk  ... not a chance.  

Ok, I'm thinking - like totally ... a professional make-over?  Is long overdue.

Now Melania?  Ok, now we're talkin'!  Even women themselves, after having seen what he can do/say unapologetically; relentlessly criticizing them because they're fat or ugly or speak up when they should just shut up?  Doesn't matter. Tens of millions of them still want Donald in the oval office over Hillary - why?  Because he fits their idea of what a person looks like - who has that kind of power and control in America and I mean OMG!  She is a princess!

What I learned from this is that Trump tapped into America's unexposed underbelly - and its (his) underlying hatred of women - especially those who think they can just step up and be President of the United States and that ultimately?  "Nasty" women get what they deserve.  For me, this election revealed what had been submerged/suppressed - now clearly visible.

Misogynists are just fine by Americans
Women in POWER are not

and most American women
are ok with that 

Don't get me wrong
misinterpret me

Maybe President Trump is a good thing
because it allows us to see 
what's really going on
so we can

fix it

H  I  L  L  A  R  Y    H  A  T  E  R

For now and most importantly
it is collectively decided
that Hillary is not qualified for the job
but Donald is

Something we need to respect
and so in closing

For all you Hillary haters out there
who stand by all your logical conclusions

Having meticulously categorized all your complaints
in nice neat little boxes (with your jabbering justifications)
that can be passed down and around to all those
who share your convictions?

It's your anger - that gives you away

axis of evil

we awoke one morning in September
and the world lurched on it's axis

George W Bush

a x i s  o f  e v i l 


there are monsters out there
who will fuck you up

my name is Aaron Driver and this is my story
you've probably read about me recently
headline news even

taking a trip out to the edge of our flat earth
reporting back - I didn't make it

I blew up the interior of a taxi cab 
in Strathroy Ontario - made a bit of a mess
at the time, I was sitting in the back seat - the driver's ok
I'm not - because I'm dead
repeatedly shot by the RCMP who just appeared
almost like they had been watching me the whole time

they say I may have been killed in the blast
so many lies, so little truth
no it was the 19 rounds
from their Ruger GP100's 
that did me in

probably because I was a few fries short
of a happy meal - well and
I had just blown up the inside
of a taxi cab - so

whatever - none of that matters now

radicalized?  a terror threat?
well, maybe I was, maybe I wasn't
you'll never know now
because they took me down



my Mom died when I was 7
and Dad checked out shortly after
ok, he was around physically
but somewhere else 
in his head

Mom was my lifeline - the only person
who really knew me - torn
beyond comprehension

she was the only person who loved me
thinking ... I don't want to be here anymore 

I was alone and didn't know what to do
so I hid inside myself for 3 years, by myself
it was fucked up but I adapted
going to school but having no idea why
Winnipeg was a shithole in 2006
still is

kids at school knew I lost her
but kept their distance anyway
I found a friend who lived down the street
like me ... lonely

I got weed from Mad Brad
we got high a lot - skipping classes
the bullshit they were teaching us
was so retarded

Dad caught me smoking a joint 
out in the garage one freezing night
and kicked me out of the house - I was 14
it was February so I drifted into the city
stood around for hours - no clue what to do
some chick told me about Regina House
a half-way shelter a few blocks away

I stayed there for a while
Kraft mac & cheese - straight up
nothing stupid added - I liked that
they had a PS2 - ya old
but better than nothing

I liked the idea of blowing shit up
and sending everyone to hell
then there's the internet 

I read all about world affairs, politics and conflict
how to build small explosives and watched porn late
it would be nice to have someone to side with tho
eenie meenie

years passed and everything just got worse
Dad remarried and just wanted to erase me
from his memory 

I needed a team to play for
Islamic State seemed as good 
as any good ole American ball club
like the Florida Gators or Mississippi State Bulldogs
only I didn't need all that padding
the protective helmet 

or red, white and blue cheerleaders 
 pom pom push up tits bouncing
chanting in the wings 

nope, I can do this solo
needing spiritual guidance from far away
exposed to the elements 
no backup support systems


there's ice on the inside window
staring out into yet another cold Canadian winter
lost kids like me inside gathered around the TV
the news is on but they're not watching

just planning their night out
about where they're going to score
and which park to hunker into
before returning trashed
to crash in their beds
at Regina House

their sanctuary 

television news spewing more crap 
something about weapons of mass destruction
WMD's - right, I need some LSD
George W is talking on an aircraft carrier
that he flew in on - piloting his own jet yet
right, ok - he's even wearing a Blue Angel flight suit
like he is just back from being over there
and there is a giant banner saying
"Mission Accomplished"

thinking - what mission - what accomplishment
am I the only one asking?

who is this idiot?
ok, my definition of psychopath and yours?
very different - channel changes

Family Feud with Richard Dawson is on
"yay - it's the feud dude" one of them remarks
stepping in and changing it back
"asshole" from the group - all leaving
why am I obsessed with this shit? 
standing here watching this and no one cares?   
people shouting praise for George W
and how he's 'taking care of business'
Saddam shot in a bunker
by American Special Forces
finally - freedom
2004 - 2016 even worse

thinking - ya there's terrorism - I get that
but what about the terrorism that we live in
and think nothing of
every day

 born and bred in the USA
waiting and watching - for the perfect moment

to strike


waiting for the order to arrive
from our Commander In Chief
alpha delta charlie 4 - in position sir

target confirmed and locked - awaiting instruction
permission to fire! permission to fire!
thinking I'm in good company
only they get to do it

and for a cause that is righteous and pure?
total bullshit 

why them and not me?
what does radicalization mean anyway?
good Christian Americans and evil 'radicals'
I can't tell one from the other anymore
no seriously, where's the good and where's the evil?

someone please tell me because
I can't see it

and who is anyone, who thinks they really know?

 my conclusion?  they don't
they only think they know


a x i s  o f  e v i l

well folks, here's the nuts and bolts of it
we're going to make America great again
oh yes - and I can promise you this

those who think we're wrong
are about to get one rude awakening

because we're watching
every move you make, who you talk to
and who you join forces with

them or us - us and them
let's just say, that you're being monitored
what you need to understand is this
we're the good guys and them?
they are the bad guys

yes, you're being groomed
for a whole new future

 and the sooner you get that 
into your simple mind?

the better
