Pep Rally for Bullies 

The Republican National Convention is disgusting. The number of lies and misinformation put forth is just pitiful. It’s merely a pep rally for bullies. Donald Trump is a bully. He has made his fortune by destroying those opposed to him. He has no conscience. If Donald Trump wins we will be less than citizens and many of the rights we have fought for will be taken away. He proved that by picking Mike Pence an unabashed enemy of LGBT rights. There are so many things wrong with the Republican Party that it will be a disaster if they win.

I’m not perfectly happy with Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee. She is a Clinton after all. However, she is what we have. She is our hope against the tyranny that would ensue if Trump wins the Presidency. Trump speaks like a fascist. He is a fascist. At least you can’t say the same about Hillary. I’m honestly not sure what kind of President Hillary Clinton will make, but I know that with her we aren’t heading toward the disaster on a massive scale that we are with Trump. I honestly fear for the lives of Americans if Trump were to be elected. I don’t have the same fear with Hillary Clinton. I think she is a tough woman and would be an adequate and probably an admirable leader. She has to have learned from the mistakes of her husband.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe

    I think the following is a perfect summation of the GOP and its adherents:

    From the NY Times’s convention blog yesterday —

    ” ‘Making Porn Great Again’
    By Ernesto Londoño
    The Republican Party platform warns that pornography has become a “public health crisis.”

    But rank and file Republicans seem unlikely to take on the mammoth industry any time soon. According to xHamster, one of the leading aggregators of online porn, traffic from users in Cleveland spiked significantly this week as the Republican National Convention got underway. Viewership in the city shot up by 184 percent from its pre-convention average, surpassing traffic the site gets from people in large cities including New York, Miami and Los Angeles.

    “This increase is unprecedented,” said Mike Kulich, a spokesman for the web site. “They’re making porn great again.”

    This isn’t the first time xHamster has involved itself in Republican politics. After North Carolina passed a discriminatory law that banned transgender people from using public restrooms consistent with their gender identity, the web site banned users in that state from accessing the site for a day. After access was restored, North Carolina users were required to state in a pop-up box that they were opposed to the law before being allowed to access videos.

    Earlier this month, the site published a map with the top search terms in states that traditionally vote Republican. The prevailing one was “cuckold.”

    Mr. Kulich said the company is analyzing and publishing data from Republican states in an effort to “show the hypocrisy of what’s going on in this country.” He said people in the porn industry were not concerned about a government crackdown, but that if that were to happen, “you’d have to put a lot of people out of work and send those jobs overseas.”

    In its press release about the Cleveland traffic, xHamster noted that Donald Trump has become a leading search term because Trump porn parodies have become crowd pleasers. Others popular search terms in Cleveland this week: “teen, cuckold and granny.”

    Ernesto Londoño is a member of the editorial board.”
