Hypocrisy Makes for a Great Group Activity!

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Decolonize the World,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

“Joined #WomensMarch last year. Not marching today.. because I realized these people are marching against 45, not against systemic racism, hypercapitalism, deliberate neglect of the poor, militarism or imperialism. And they wouldn’t be marching if Hillary won. So ¯\_(ツ)_/¯” – Crystal @alwaystheself

Steve K.: If true, it would be unconstitutional, violates the 1st amendment for one thing. Not voting is one way of protesting.

Rayn: Indeed!

These political parasites are nothing more than a legally-protected criminal caste!

() A state lawmaker from Manhattan wants to make it costly for New Yorkers not to vote.
