Grievances: A Short Poem Pointed at an Orange

V vendetta mask 3D model - TurboSquid 1553631

The following represents the views and opinions of myself; any connection with individuals, living or orange; is purely non-coincidental and is, in fact taken directly from the list of grievances against a certain King at the time it was written….and apply now. As in, RIGHT NOW. Substitutions have been made to NOT protect the innocent but to point a finger at the fatuous and fascistic. THESE ARE ACTUAL WORDS (with a certain name added) FROM THIS COUNTRY’S DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE:

“The history of the present President of the United States is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

Trump has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

Trump has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

Trump has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

Trump has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

Trump has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

Trump has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

Trump has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

Trump has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.

Trump has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

Trump has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

Trump has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

Trump has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.

Trump has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

Trump: Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

Trump: For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

Trump: cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

Trump: imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

Trump: For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:

Trump: For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences

Trump: For abolishing the free System of Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these States:

Trump: For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

Trump: For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

Trump: He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

Trump: He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

Trump: He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

Trump: He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

Trump: He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

IF YOU LIVE IN AMERICA. VOTE LIKE YOUR LIFE DEPENDED ON IT.

IT DOES.

NEVER FASCISM!

REMEMBER, REMEMBER, THE 3RD OF NOVEMBER!

RISE UP!

  1. You forgot to mention Trump’s greatest achievement: the round up of the extreme left and their confinement to concentration camps in California. Afterwards Trump set off nuclear bombs along the San Andreas fault dumping the trouble some state into the ocean. 🙂
