This is Who We Are

We lock children in cages and shoot tear gas at families desperately seeking refuge. That is who we are.

We are violent.

The number one arms dealer in the entire world in fact. War profiteering is kind of our thing.

Millions and millions of children starving to death in Yemen, damn, wish we could help but instead of food, all we can do is provide their oppressors with the weapons that keep the children dying.

We are genocide enablers. Which shouldn’t surprise you.

Our country was founded on genocide. I don’t know why we pretend it wasn’t.

We are violent.

We allow our police to shoot unarmed people of color without real repercussions. Twelve year old boys – it was their fault they were murdered, they shouldn’t have been black.

Mass shootings have become one of the main things that make America, America. All around the world they know us by our mass shootings.

We are violent.

It is our God-given right to own machines specifically designed to kill as many people as possible, in as short of time as possible. It’s in our constitution. Well, it is if you completely misinterpret it anyway. Regardless, it is our greatest amendment.

Freedom of speech, who needs it?

All men are created equal, please, the founding fathers didn’t even mean that crap.

The right to bear arms is all we need here in America.

We are a fearful people. It is what keeps us strong.

This is just the tip of who we are.

One nation under capitalism, with bigotry, and xenophobia for all.
