I Am So Angry!
In the last few days of social distancing, we watched the Hillary doc on Hulu and Bombshell, one of the few movies we missed in the theater this year.
Whether you like Hillary or not, she is an incredibly brilliant woman who has been treated completely differently because she is not a man. The long tail of her taking a seat at the table that had no women at is the reason so many women are now running for office. These women who are running or are already in office were pissed that their voices were not being heard. Hillary found her voice, her career, and her path in an obviously complicated marriage relationship but she always cared about the people of this country. I believe that. Someone always has to suffer for being the first to shake things up yet she paved the way for others and for that we can all be thankful.
Then we watched Bombshell. If any of it is even remotely true, and I did follow the story when it broke on the news, then it is even more abominable that we have allowed an Australian family to essentially manipulate the American public to their financial benefit.
Roger Ailes won’t be the first but he might be the last of an era of men who did anything they wanted because they sat in a seat of power just like Harvey, Batali, Halperin, and others. It is so time.
I can’t help wondering how the hell did we get to a dystopian society with Chauncey the Gardner running the country and a bunch of self-serving narcissists who only care about their pockets (just like Fox) with zero ability to manage itself out of a paper bag? These people push perception vs reality.
Simple answer. White entitled men who have been able to use their power to make everyone else around cow-tow to their whims. Why anyone would surround themselves with this is beyond me but right now I am pissed.
We are all freaked out and feeling anxiety and wonder but be safe, be smart and look at the data. And when it does die down, give it a few months, I hope we come together as a nation and take a deep look at ourselves and vote these losers out of office. It is time for major change and we should all be very very angry.
