I'm not Romani, a Jehovah's Witness, a Muslim, nor Black, but I am Disabled, Jewish, and Queer.

And based on my understanding of history, on top of all the bs the English right wing extremists/UKIP&Co have been saying for years, the defunding of services for the Disabled accompanied by (mainly Tory) politicians talking like the Nazi purveyors of the T4 Plan, all the anti-Muslim and anti-Roma immigration talk over the past 18 months, this vote is just another indication of a trend.

And that trend terrifies me.

Several events of this year have made one porpoise want to retreat to the depths of the ocean.

This has been a scary year. I can't be the only one envisioning scenarios where people have to flee from the Republic of Gilead after a Trump victory. (And that's the second reference to A Handmaid's Tale I've made this week.)

I'm afraid too :(

I accidentally ended up on Donald Trump's mailing list a while back, and his email to supporters on the morning after the Brexit vote was...really really scary, because it was both clear that he had no idea what the consequences of Brexit are for Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales (he thought it was a positive thing for them, when people in those countries overwhelmingly voted not to leave the EU), and full of the kind of nationalist & colonialist rhetoric ("we need to declare our independence from corruption in Washington!") that basically translates to "the U.S. is for WASPs only, also a civil war would be cool."

I feel much the same as you. :(
