one of the hardest things this past year

You know how people say, if you have a time machine, the first thing you should do is go back in time and kill Hitler?(*)

One of the hardest things this past year (2016, 2017) has been the realization that so many people in my country, if given the chance, would probably go back in time to make sure that Hitler won.

They’d go back in time to make sure that the Confederacy won the civil war, that slavery didn’t end.

They’d go back to take away women’s right to vote, along with all women’s other rights as well.

That’s the kind of people I find being loud and proud in the U.S. today.  smdh

 

(* why Hitler?  because he slaughtered Europeans and white folk?  why isn’t the first impulse to go back and prevent the genocide of the First Nations?  why not prevent the transatlantic slave trade?  colonial imperialism?  apartheid?  the Spanish Inquisition?  why not assassinate King Leopold II of Belgium?  Ivar Lovaas?  Stalin?  etc.)
