Hola a todos. As of this writing (el 2 de septiembre de 2017/the 2nd of September 2017), it looks very likely to some people that the US is going to fight the Civil War all over again. It’s getting really ugly and nasty out there, particularly online. But can a nation of out-of-shape, meat-eating and junk-food-consuming overweight blimps — who couldn’t begin to walk one city block without taking a smoking break — fight a civil war? Doubtful. Not very effectively. And how would they possibly get away from their phones and their texting addiction to focus on a civil war? Are the nasty, vile and bullying comments one reads online constantly boot-licking The Orange Man really written by anonymous keyboard warrior cowards talking all “big and tough,” just like their messiah? I read that the demand for the confederate flag is way up, especially in Texas. People there are having to look out-of-state to get a confederate flag. Although gun sales dropped after Hillary lost the electoral college, but won the popular vote by over 3 million votes, that we know of.
As for the opposition to The Orange Man (and his stupid/ignorant and draconian policies determined to take this country back to 1940s-50s Germany) and the proudly-ignorant and partisan trash who continue to support him, there was a counter-protest to them in San Francisco on Sábado/Saturday, el 26 de agosto de 2017/the 26 of August 2017. The counter-protest — thousands took part in it; it was at least the size of a street fair — was in response to the far-right/white supremacist/pro-Nazi rally that had been scheduled for San Francisco’s Crissy Field. They cancelled their event due to safety concerns and moved it to Pacifica CA from what I read.
One of the protests on Sábado/Saturday in San Francisco was streamed live. The chat comments along side of the video were vile and unreadable. Nothing but hate for the protesters. Really despicable, hateful comments. They were the same tone and of the same level of ignorance and hate that one reads on the far-right/white supremacist/Nazi site Bre*tB**t.com. Mi amigo/My friend was on Bre*tB**t recently for a bit as an experiment. He wrote a few polite comments expressing his point of view. He was told to “go back to the country of Europe” — any Europeans who happen to read this will be surprised to know that Europe is a country — and “we don’t need no stinking education down here in the south.” No of course not. You don’t need any education, good heavens no, wouldn’t dream of it! No, just remain proudly-ignorant — just like your messiah — in your blind support of a corrupt billionaire who is playing you and other fools just like you. That comment about not needing education was supposedly written by a member of the Ku Klux Klan. The ultimate of stupidity can be found on that site where they absolutely adore and make any excuse for El Hombre Naranja — no different really than the Obamabots did and some still do for their messiah — and The Orange Man’s Cultists can’t stand it when one calls him The Orange Man. Well isn’t that too bad. Tough luck, because that’s all I call him and will continue to do so, should they ever show up here.
Because of how San Francisco has drastically changed — for the worse; The City is quite conservative — it’s rare to have protests here these days. The counter-protests on Sábado seemed to have started in at least two different places in The City. I’ll presume that most of the protesters were from Oakland as well as elsewhere in the Bay Area and that’s because Oakland is where the Old City/former San Francisco residents live today who were evicted/forced out of San Francisco. Who else would be protesting? Certainly not The Castro. Certainly not the lobotomised techies and conformist Millennials. No, I didn’t see a sea of all-black or black and gray Millennial clothing (their “uniform”) at the streamed protest. During the Obama regime, there were only a few protests in San Francisco that I’m aware of during his 8 years. Presumably the thinking being that one can’t protest one’s own messiah Obama and one’s virtually-dead Democratic Party. But I thought it curious that the protest that was at Civic Center walked to the Harvey Milk Plaza in The Castro because the conservative Castro can’t stand protests. For example, mi amigo/my friend and I were subjected to some hate and bullying in The Castro by some conservative gay guys for protesting during the years of the illegitimate Bush regime when we carried our protest signs down Castro Street. That was our first shocking clue and wake-up call that The Castro neighbourhood was changing and becoming conservative. And based on our experiences in The Castro since then, I thought it odd that the protesters went there. Why bother going to The Castro? The Castro has nothing to do with any of this these days, other than hating on the homeless. There is no activism of any kind in The conservative Castro today. So don’t waste your time there.
“Love Always Wins?”
I noticed that Scott Penis, also known as The Holy and Indivisible Trinity (that hateful conservative politician who lies and calls himself a “moderate” to disguise his dangerous agenda) had to get his puss in on these protests and draw more attention to himself and his enormous ego. He tweeted: “The Castro stands for love and inclusion and against hate. Love Always Wins.” You know, I don’t know what person or group came up with the “Love Always Wins” cliché, but it’s absolutely bull shit. Oh it sounds good — it’s a nice saying for a greeting card or something; but that’s about the only use for it — because it is not true. Love does not always win. In fact, history has shown that much of the time love does not win in any permanent way. I’ll give a very recent example of that: Apparently omnipotent Scott Penis had not heard or he forgot that less than 24 hours before these protests, The Orange Man had pardoned that despicable piece of subhuman redneck trash in Arizona, and in this case adding to the “Hate (Always) Wins” pile. So in this instance “Hate (Always) Wins” permanently. I want to stay with that for a moment. For those wondering (as I was), should at some point — probably not in our lifetime at the rate things are going — a sane, rationale, reasonable and just/fair person were to become president of The Cesspool/the US/los Estados Unidos, can s/he overturn this pardon for this piece of anti-immigrant excrement in Arizona? The answer is: NO. A presidential pardon cannot be reversed or overturned by a future president or any branch of government. It is final. Even the basura that issued it cannot cancel the pardon. So I think it’s time to lay to rest that “Love Always Wins” cliché because it does not reflect the reality. Again, “Hate (Always) Wins” much of the time.
Scott Penis also wrote this drivel: “The Castro stands for love and inclusion and against hate.”
That’s a fucking lie. This guy says anything and apparently thinks no one will call his ass on it. He must sit around dreaming up this feel-good pabulum he mindlessly spews to unknowingly expose his hypocrisy, as well as to draw more attention to himself. He craves attention.
“The Castro stands for love and inclusion?” Only if one is of a certain income bracket, as well as a conservative (registered Democrat), a black/gray clothing conformist, as long as one welcomes the breeders and their babies and strollers and prefers living next to them over living next to (poor) Queers, as long as one is a phone-zombie, drives a big hearse-black SUV and is an owner of a home or a Luxury Designer Condo (Dahling) in The Castro and a strong supporter for the conservative merchants. Then yes, one will find “love and inclusion” in The Castro. But if one does not fit that description, “get out of my neighbourhood” is more likely what you’ll hear.
The Castro stands against hate? Oh man, that’s rich! The truth is: The Castro is very selective in the hate it stands against. The Castro didn’t stand against hate during the 8 years that Scott Penis was a hateful politician here. He was/is one of the most divisive politicians this City has seen and he was elected twice by the conservatives — who probably call themselves a “liberal” (HA!) or a “moderate” — he pretends to serve. He really serve conservative corporate interests and his own self-serving conservative agenda. It’s all about him and his enormous ego.
As for The Castro standing against hate, check in with the homeless about that. They will have reams of stories to tell about that phony “love and inclusion” bunk and the hate they were and have been subjected to in The Castro, especially under Scott Penis’s agenda.
Ask the few naked guys — if you can find them anywhere — what they think about The Castro standing for inclusion and against hate. They too will have reams of stories to tell about how they were subjected to hate in The Castro from local bullying conservative gay guys in particular. In fact, it’s because of hate, body image issues and fear of seeing the human body that we have a city-wide nudity ban — dreamed up and authored by Scott Penis — because of a few former naked guys occasionally in The Castro, and the deciding vote for the city-wide nudity ban was cast by a political opportunist pendejo who no longer even lives here. That’s often the way that works. Some of these political opportunist corporate parasites help ruin The City, then they leave.
Also, check in with the best sex store in The Castro, Rock Hard, and ask them about the hate they’ve been subjected to over the years from locals and being forced to sanitise their store window — by having to put white stickers over sex scenes on video covers — to accommodate the prudes in The Castro who can’t bare to see a penis, scrotum or ass shot, so they call the cops to complain about the store’s window. Someone may be asking, “Are you talking about a store in San Francisco’s Castro that has to do that? What has happened to San Francisco and The Castro?” Yes I am talking about San Francisco and The Castro, although one might think I am writing about a sex store in Topeka Kansas. But it’s not just Rock Hard. All the sex stores in The Castro are required to put white stickers over video cover sex scenes because of complaints from the local prudes. And in some instances, these are people who became a prude after they became a parent. They fled to San Francisco from conservative backwater small towns during the height of the Gay Mecca days, then after becoming a parent they’ve tried to turn The Castro into the conservative small town they moved here from decades ago. Why didn’t these hypocritical assholes just move back to where they came from?
Ask the poor and homeless Queers — whom gay elitist Scott Penis despises — about the “love and inclusion” they’ve felt as they’ve been hated on in The Castro and the draconian and hateful laws that Scott Penis authored directed at them.
As is often the case, the words Scott Penis tweeted — to give himself the publicity that he craves — were hollow, feel-good, bull shit. That’s his trademark. There’s no shortage of hate to be found in The Castro. It’s why I and mis amigos/my friends don’t feel comfortable in The Castro anymore. And Scott Penis helped ruin it. I usually leave The Castro feeling annoyed — and as if I need to write another article about the hate — because of some type of hate, snarls or nasty looks I get even though I consistently mind my own business and try to keep a very low profile because I know how hateful The Castro can be. The Castro is nothing like it was and, again, Scott Penis helped ruin it, el pendejo, along with the conservative merchants. Their “boy” has been Scott Penis. You should have seen the merchants’ behaviour toward him in his first term. They acted as if he were “God” himself, The Holy and Indivisible Trinity. That’s why I call him that, because I observed the behaviour of the locals toward him. They stopped short of genuflecting to him on the sidewalks while he was glued to his phone. I saw local conservative daddy-types with their red necks say to him, “How are you doing, my boy?” My boy? As if they were on some daddy/son sexual fantasy with him, and I don’t doubt that’s why some people voted for him. He could do no wrong in their conservative minds. Although I did see one angry daddy-type on one occasion confront his “boy” Scott Penis over why the gay bars were allowed to post their event signs on the utility poles. The daddy looked like he was literally about to have a stroke over it (his face got blood red). Nothing else going on his pathetic life, I guess, than concern about signs on poles. I couldn’t hear what Scott Penis said to him. But throughout his busy-bodied, self-righteous, self-serving political “career,” hateful conservative Scott Penis has campaigned on hate repeatedly. So his blinding hypocrisy is noted. The Basura. But 782 hypocrites/suckers without critical thinking skills “loved” what he tweeted. And 354 other hypocrites re-tweeted it.
Unfortunately, Scott Penis seems to still be living here even though his current job is in Sacramento. What does he do, commute? I’ve had the misfortune of seeing his face at least twice on days that he should have been at work in the state capital. One wonders: Is his new job not exactly what he expected? Is he not the center of attention there as he was here? When he was in office here, one got the impression he was the only person on The Board and more important than el alcalde/the mayor. Do they not worship him nearly as much in Sacramento as they did here? Is his big head not massaged as much there as it was constantly here? Does he not like the Queer boys there as much? Are they not as conservative as the ones here?
In the big scheme of things, the protests I mentioned earlier don’t do much. They’re just a “flash in the pan.” I’m not criticising them but I would like to point out their hypocrisy because there was no shortage of things to protest during the Obama regime years. Where were these protesters then? In the moment, these protests show resistance to the far-right and The Orange Man’s fascistic regime. They show that the Old City that has been evicted out of San Francisco is still around and aware, which is good, assuming they were the majority of the protesters. These protests are therapeutic for the protesters of course to vent their feelings. And perhaps a few of the lobotomised and conformists of the new conservative San Francisco — some of the wealthy and elitist techie trash/Millennials — were there, wearing something other than their black and gray uniform. But were they able to get off their phones long enough to fully take part? I suspect most people don’t pay any attention to these protests other than to hate on them as was shown in the comments I mentioned earlier. When I was reading local corporate sites reporting on San Francisco protests in the past, those comments too were unreadable and referred to the protesters in nothing but pejorative terms with some far-right commenters threatening them with violence such as running their car through the crowd, as we saw happen in Charlottesville in the US state of Virginia. But with the sheeple’s short attention span, ask people in a week and they probably won’t even remember there was a protest.—el barrio rosa
*** About Charlottesville: Having lived in the District of Columbia and the Washington Metropolitan Area, I went to Charlottesville on many occasions. It’s a very pretty small city and the University of Virginia and its Medical Centre are there which makes Charlottesville a more progressive city because of the national and international students studying there at the University. Depending upon the route one takes to get there, Charlottesville is about a 2.5-3 hour drive south of the District. I was telling mi amigo/my friend: It’s interesting. Just a month ago, most people had never heard of Charlottesville other than residents of the District, Maryland and Virginia. Now, everyone (probably world-wide) knows where Charlottesville is.
