It was indeed a historic night. We had a lot of firsts happen. I am so happy to report to my overseas, and out of state readership, my home state of Kansas was included in the mix An open Lesbian Native American named Sharice Davids was elected as my Representative in Kansas’s 3rd District beating the incumbent a Republican. Way to go Sharice, and thanks to my fellow residents of Kansas’s 3rd District. WE DID IT !!!

There were so many firsts elected that I don’t have the space to give them their due so that I will address two more.

Jared Polis on November 6th was elected Governor of the state of Colorado. Jared Made history as the first openly Gay man in the history of the United States to be elected Governor. Presently he is serving in Congress as the Representative of Colorado’s 2nd district. WAY TO GO JARED!!!

Ilhan Omar is a Somali-American politician who on November 6th was the first Somali-American to be elected to the United States Congress. But this was not the only office Ilhan had held. In 2016, she was elected to Minnesota’s House of Representatives which made her the first Somali-American to hold office. Illhan joins Rashida Tlaib another Muslim woman elected to Congress that night. Fake ass concerns have been stirring about Ilhan and Rashida will be sworn into their newly elected positions in January using the Quoran instead of the Bible. And?

You have evil ass vindictive lying ass hookers in office now who was sworn in on the Bible. The Bible did not mean anything to them. The Bible did not protect us from their lying, racist, bigoted asses. It was a prop used to give the impression that these hookers had a modicum of morals and decency. Cognitive Dissonance. All I have to say to Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib is YAAASSS QUEENS !!!

To the Progressive candidates who lost their elections, we are proud of you as well. It is not an easy thing to put yourselves out there. Keep fighting. Don’t give up. Your name is out there. When the going gets tough, the tough get going. HUGS TO YOU !!!

I want to give a huge shout-out and thanks to two of my heroes, Spiritual Studd, and MT Baby, co-hosts of the LGBTQ+ Kansas City podcast “Just My Opinion.” If you have Facebook, they have a “Just My Opinion” homepage. You can also go to the homepage on Facebook. There is a link to “Just My Opinion” there also.

Their latest episode of “Just My Opinion” circa November 2nd, 2018 titled “Cognitive Dissonance” really spoke to me and inspired me for this Chuck’s Chat article.

Cognitive Dissonance – The state of having inconsistent thoughts, beliefs, or attitudes especially relating behavioral decisions and attitude changes.

Good times. These are the good times. I know some of you are reading this and thinking to your selves, “Trick are you high?’ Let me explain why I say this.

For ions, racists and bigots have played “nut city” when it comes to dealing with racism and bigotry. They always professed that marginalized peoples were crazy and that we were paranoid or trying to play the victim. We needed to pick ourselves up from our bootstraps, work hard instead of wanting handouts, and we will succeed like them. Well, when Barack Obama was elected and re-elected President of the United States, then we were told not to be proud and hold our heads high. He was not truly Black, but he was mixed. If you are a regular reader of my articles, I just laugh and said: “The first time President Obama did something racists won’t like, he will be a full-fledged nigger in their eyes.” Well, we all know how that scenario turned out. Racist Conservatives lost their minds because of the fact Barack Obama was smarter than they were. He proved to the world that these ratchet racists in this country had no intention of having a non-White be President of this country. All men are not equal in their eyes, and Barack proved that their myth of meritocracy aka Horatio Alger Syndrome was full of crap.

Racists and bigoted Conservatives lost their minds Millions upon millions of these “I don’t see color” fibbers used any means necessary to elect an unqualified tangerine colored Buffon as the leader of this country in 2016. Ever since Trump has been in the White House, Most of today’s Republicans have taken cognitive dissonance to the extreme. Their enablers are just as bad. Most of today’s Republicans are not stupid. They are evil, selfish and greedy. A lot of poor and middle class financial Conservative Whites want to blame people of color for their financial woes and lack of employment. That immigrants are stealing their jobs. They refuse to believe that CEOs of this country are replacing them with Mr. Roboto (automation) and sending their jobs overseas. It is so much easier to blame people of color and not themselves for voting against their own interests. Most poor and middle economic class Whites refuse to believe that they have a lot more in common with poor and middle economic class people of color. Trump and most Republican leaders see you as the “new niggers on the block.” You refuse to acknowledge you are being played. You think your white skin privilege will save you.

Progressive Whites have shown in these midterm elections that America’s strength is our diversity. Today’s Republican Party have sold their souls to Trump. People are waking up. The chickens are coming home to roost. Instant karma will get them. Good times. These are the good times.
