Media – Horror! Something bad has happened and it involves a Western Country! You must care.
Right – Fuck this! Let’s blame the minority we fear may take over and promote our right wing capitalist agenda ! We’ll use the working class cos they haven’t got a clue!
Lefties – Let’s all mourn. Here, take this flag to help you feel better about the state of the world
Minorities – Fuck universal mourning. Where was the flag when other groups were dying?
Media – Wait, come on people, can we not confuse the issues and mourn this because it sells?
Minorities – No! We fucking can’t. Besides, what did you do to deserve this. Karma Bitch.
Lefties – Erm ……shouldn’t your anger be towards the mainstream media?
Media – Hey! We’re just reporting the truth as we want you to hear it.
Minorities – Yes but they are too powerful for us to fight so we’ll piss on this instead
Lefties – OK but whilst we fight the right are gaining power?
Right – Oh Sweetie, we never LOST power. So disillusioned.
Lefties – But what about the hatred of ….
Right – We don’t care! It’s all about the money, Honey
Lefties – Could you stop with the diminutive names? It hurts my feelings and makes me feel disempowered.
Right – Sorry petal.
Minorities – We won! We showed them.
Lefties – you won? How?
Minorities – Something something something on facebook.
Lefties – how has that changed…
Minorities – Let’s go get snacks and go back to chatting about TV shows because apparently that’s all we care about.
Lefties – I’m just trying to help you because you clearly need help
Minorities – Check your privilege, Becky.
Lefties – Bob. My name is Bob. So it’s a no to the flag then? I just want you to feel what I’m feeling!
Minorities – You don’t understand what we go through EVERY day. You’ll be over this in a week.
Meanwhile Media and Right high five, give Facebook a big ole hug and get back to business.
