Social Justice Warrior Checks @RealDonaldTrump First Thing Every Day To Know What Cause To Champion
While some Christians have formed a habit of reading a chapter of Psalms or Proverbs each day to give their mind a direction, Chris Hanson has a different pattern. Chris is a social justice warrior who wakes up every day and opens up Twitter first thing.
“I immediately click on @RealDonald Trump to see what he said overnight,” declares Hanson. “That way before my feet hit the floor I know why I should be outraged that day. I suppose a lot of people go through the whole day without knowing what they should be angry about. But not me. I don’t leave it to chance. Usually “not my President” tweets out something racist, or something that is hurtful to the poor, or something that is against our environment. I usually have a good burn going even before I take a sip of my fair-trade organic white coffee bean avocado mocha frappe protein shake.”
Chris, like many of his friends sees the President’s Twitter account as a God-send. “I honestly don’t know how my parents and their ancestors knew what to protest. I guess that is why they had so many world wars. Now we have word wars. I remember one time Twitter user told me I went savage on Trump when he defended the use of native Americans for team mascots and logos. I think in some cases that ‘savage’ phrase could have racist connotations. Like if Trump used the word ‘savage’, or if my Republican family members used it… wow… that would be racist. But understanding it in cultural context, it was a real compliment to me because I totally scalped Trump in the comments.”
The social justice movement feels blessed right now because they have such an easy touch in President Trump to give them outrage. But some are looking into the future and wondering what they will care about after he leaves office.
