Moby opina sobre resultado de elecciones en EU

Por Angel Amézquita

“America, what the fuck is wrong with you”, dice Moby en esta carta abierta.

El DJ, cantante músico y productor Richard Melville Hall mejor conocido como Moby, siempre se mostró afín a los ideales de la candidata a la presidencia de los Estados Unidos, Hillary Clinton. Incluso realizó un par de canciones como parte de la campaña 30 Days, 30 Songs.

Pero hoy, desanimado y frustrado por la derrota de Clinton y el hombre al que llamo un “verdadero sociópata” convirtiéndose en el presidente electo, Moby compartió una carta abierta a través de Billboard condenando al pueblo norteamericano por todos sus errores como nación.

“Han ayudado a elegir a un hombre dos veces divorciado que alardea abiertamente sobre la infidelidad y cometer crímenes sexuales… que ha calumniado a los latinos y llamado violadores a los mexicanos…”, expresa Melville en esta declaración. “Le han negado la presidencia a una mujer erudita y experimentada cuyo único defecto es estar en una campaña de desprestigio de derecha por 30 años”. Aquí abajo puedes leer la carta completa.

“america,

 why are you so afraid of evidence?


you smoke cigarettes,naively believing they won’t kill you. you eat garbage, believing it won’t make you sick and obese.
 and now you’ve elected donald trump.


’christians’ and family-values voters have en masse helped elect a twice divorced man who openly brags about infidelity and committing sexual assault. 
30% of latinos have helped elect a man who has routinely maligned latinos and called mexicans ‘rapists’.
 45% of women have helped elect a man who brags about ‘grabbing women by the pussy’ and has called women ‘pigs’ & ‘slobs’.
 business-minded middle america has en masse helped elect a man who has led roughly half of his businesses to bankruptcy and lost
close to a billion dollars in 1995 alone.
 and blue collar middle america has en masse helped elect a trust-fund baby who has, over-time, inherited over $600,000,000.00 from his father.


and in the process you’ve denied the presidency to an experienced and erudite woman whose only shortcoming is being on the receiving end
of a 30 year right-wing smear campaign. 
as a life long progressive i’m supposed to be diplomatic and understanding, but america, what the fuck is wrong with you?
 but then i ask myself, very sadly, why am i surprised?
 this is the same america that eats at burger king and is baffled as to why it ends up obese and cancerous and dying
this is the same america who thinks that granting health care to 20,000,000 people is somehow treasonous.


and this is the america who has now elected a dim-witted, racist, misogynist.
 a dim-witted, racist, misogynist who has ruined businesses and has no policy proposals other than ‘build a wall’. 
i guess there will be some cold, bitter schadenfreude in spending the next 4 years watching middle america wake up to the fact
that donald trump is an incompetent con-man.


the rust belt jobs won’t come back. the wall won’t get built. and hillary won’t get locked up.


donald trump will be impeached, or end his presidency with single digit approval ratings.
and hopefully, somehow, america will finally wake up the fact that republicans are, simply, terrible. 
reagan and bush sr. and the republicans ruined the economy, bill clinton and the democrats fixed it. 
george w. bush and the republicans ruined the economy all over again, obama and the democrats fixed it. 
in some baffling, habitual masochism americans keep going back to what’s bad for them, whether it’s food or political parties.


and the climate will suffer.  the inner cities will suffer.  children will suffer.  animals will suffer.  gun deaths will continue to skyrocket.
 we will suffer. all because americans live in this delusional, upside down world wherein they’re unwilling to look at evidence.


but here are the facts: 
junk food makes you fat and kills you.
 cigarettes give you cancer.
and donald trump is a racist and a misogynist who has ruined countless businesses and will be the worst president our country has ever, ever seen.
