I am scared.
As a Canadian on a work visa in US, I am scared that the next time I leave they might not let me back in. My lovely wife @sundilu is an American from NM and we know so many lovely people here, but this climate is so stressful and as I express my ways to #resist here and on SM, I'm worried a border guard will see my efforts and reject me.
And I'm a middle aged white guy with a decent education - am HORRIFIED for ALL of the people less privileged than I.
Hugs and love to you all!
@McGoo This comment is pretty clearly islamophobic in nature, *and* engaging someone who didn't ask your opinion. Such behaviour is not tolerated here.
@Gargron your comment is clearly ignorant in nature. islamophobia is a phobia and my concerns are quite rational. As opposed to phobias which do not have logic behind them. If you require the actual verses of the quran I can look into it for you. Given you coding here I am sure you have used google before however. Not engaging people that don't ask for comments would kill social media in a heart beat. I guess that's why you're not twitter yet.
@daniellynds @sundilu Such an awful feeling; I can only imagine. I am guessing the terribleness is restricted to non-Canadians; Canadians probably seem innocuous to the regime. Which is all the worse for non-Canadians.
Which is not to say you shouldn't be scared. God, who knows what the hell this regime might do.
I'm an American living in Canada and right now I am crushed by the weight of what my country is doing. And also fighting back.
Especially with news that they may search people's SM accounts and the like.
But yeah, I am privileged, white, and educated. Not too much to fear.
Either way, I will do what I can to help #resist though :)
I marvel at the extent to which my circle of friends has come to go both ways across the United States/Canada border. It oscillates between being comforting and frightening.
Dan, I bear your fears with you.
