Let me say it right here — if you voted for Trump, I do think you are a racist. I do think you’re homophobic. I do think you’re a misogynist. Racism, and homophobia, and misogyny are all a spectrum, and you’re on it. You might not be a ‘cheering while a black man gets lynched’ racist, but boy, did you just sell them the rope and look the other way.

From Friendly Atheist:

One of the biggest takeaways from the election for me was that there were so many more people than I expected who might normally promote respect, civility, religious freedom, equality, and civil rights… but when push came to shove, they weren’t turned off enough by a candidate who doesn’t give a damn about any of those things. They had a choice and they went with the racist, sexist, ignorant bigot.

Ben Carson: Hillary can’t be president because Lucifer

Listen to the whole speech, if you can. It’s full of nonsense and Ben Carson doesn’t seem to know how to keep his eyes open. At 4:08 Carson begins speaking about Saul Alinsky and how he likes Lucifer. Hillary Clinton wrote about Alinsky. Therefore, Clinton isn’t qualified to be president. It makes sense to Carson.
