America The Ugly

America's mask is off. Last night you saw the face of America, and it is a face of hatred. America is a monster that exults in ignorance and intolerance. Last night, you heard the monster that is America roar.

The roar disguises the monster's fear: fear of people who do not have the monster's white skin, people who do not share the monster's vision of God, fear of people who are female. The monster that is America fears women most of all. Because the monster that is America knows, in that deepest part of itself, that women are powerful. That women will destroy the monster's world if he gives them the chance.

This woman says: I have seen you, monster. I know you now. And I say to you, you shall not stop me. Last night you threw down the gauntlet. Today, I picked it up.
