I'll admit I was having a jolly good time laughing at them and saying serves you right, then I came across this.
And I wasn't laughing anymore. The realization that I had been laughing at people like this man, well I'm ashamed of it. These are peoples lives. I voted for someone (not hillary and never trump) who I think actually gives a damn about other human beings. That doesn't make me any better than trump, who mocks disabled reporters
We shouldn't mock the Coal Miners who are going to die because they'll lose insurance as black lung is a pre-existing condition. We shouldn't mock people like Bob up there. If we do that, WE ARE JUST AS BAD AS TRUMP.
These are people with hopes, dreams, families, fears, and a soul. The fact that I was mocking them and calling them dumbasses and saying serves you right, is shameful.
I try to remember Hanlons Razor in times of trouble
These people aren't bad people. These are people who were tricked into voting against the interests of the lower and middle classes. That doesn't make them evil, it doesn't mean they deserve what is happening. These people made a mistake, we've all made mistakes. The fact that theirs effected us all doesn't mean its still not a mistake. The pain they are going through deserves the sympathy we'd give anyone else. If we are going to get through this, we can't alienate and cheer at the pain of innocents. That's not what we stand for yet its what I was doing and for that I am deeply ashamed.
Its still perfectly okay to laugh at the idiot below though
