That’s right: you didn’t think.

My dad had a saying, back in the day. If my brother or I messed something up, and we tried to explain it to him by saying, “Well, I didn’t think it would (fill in the blank),” he would reply, “That’s right: you didn’t think!”

It should be obvious to everyone now that the right wing doesn’t think things through.

When you treat black athletes kneeling as “disrespectful” to America, but do or say nothing about confederate flags and Nazi flags being waved alongside the US flag…

When you yell “All Lives Matter!”, but shrug and run away when refugee children need help…

When you treat Muslims and immigrants as some sort of super-danger, but do nothing when white non-Muslim native-born men are slaughtering innocent people in churches, movie theaters, and schools…

When the same evangelicals who supported the disastrous Iraq War “because it’s the End Times” are now celebrating the current government regime…

When you demand “respect,” but vote for the most disrespectful President in American history…

Did you think people weren’t going to notice the inconsistencies, contradictions, and hypocrisy? Did you think people were going to be OK with the disparity and double standards? Did you think we should just show you “civility,” after you have rejected it for so long?

That’s right: you didn’t think.
