In order for white people to keep manifesting their imagined destiny, they need to make sure white people remain the ruling class. If that means they have to change America into a monarchy, then some of them are more than ready to do just that.

Recently, I was scrolling on my Twitter timeline, trying to alleviate some of the never-ending boredom of having nothing to do during my breaks from working, and I came across a series of screenshots on the latest conspiracy theories popping out of the Trumpers. …

It doesn’t matter how educated you are, how savvy, or tough, or kind you are, or how many times you’ve helped others out of their own abusive situations.
