Good news for those of you have been triggered by the results of the most recent election – the Commonwealth of Massachusetts will be providing you with a safe space:
Citing reports of harassment and intimidation of racial, ethnic and religious minorities in the days after the presidential election, Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey on Monday launched a hotline to allow people to report those types of incidents.
“In Massachusetts, we will protect people’s rights, fight discrimination and keep people safe,” Healey, the state’s top prosecutor, said in a statement. “There are reports from around the country following the election that people have been targeted and subjected to conduct that imperils safety and civil rights.”
The hotline for Massachusetts residents, staffed by attorneys and workers in Healey’s office, allows them “to report bias-motivated threats, harassment, and violence,” Healey said. According to Time.com, “states across the country have seen increased incidents of racist or anti-Semitic vandalism and violence, many of which have drawn directly on the rhetoric and proposals of President-elect Donald Trump.”
The Massachusetts attorney general’s hotline is 1-800-994-3228. Healey’s office also encouraged residents to contact them through social media or file a civil rights complaint. Healey’s office also urged immigrants to “come forward with their concerns without fear of reprisal based on immigration status,” in a release announcing the hotline.
Thank God. It’s about time we had a phone number to call in case of emergency. Because that didn’t exist already. And as a diehard Hillary supporter I have been subjected to racism, sexism, xenophobia, homophobia, and transphobia all over the Internet, which SHOULD be a safe space for me to share my opinions without being confronted with people who view the world differently. Ever since Trump got elected I have had my safe space violated more times than I can count. All of these things you’re seeing on the news are real. All of them. Not one of them is staged. And the only reason they’re doing it is because Donald Trump makes them feel empowered to do so.
Luckily we have GREAT leaders like Maura Healey who will be there for me to speak with on the other end of the hot line next time my safe space is violated. THIS is why I pay taxes. THIS is money well spent.
I’ll tell you another thing about Maura Healey too – she is VERY consistent. For the last few months she’s been endorsing and supporting Moses Dixon for State Representative in the 17th District. Sure, Moses was arrested for beating his girlfriend in 2012, charged with A&B, and had a restraining order taken out against him because the victim feared for her life. But that’s nothing compared to Trump-inspired hate speech. Plus, the victim ended up recanting, and as Maura Healey knows, victims of domestic violence NEVER recant and go back to their abuser. Ever.
Oh, and if you’re a Trump supporter who got beat up for voting for the winner, you can’t call the hotline. You’re not really a victim. You brought this on yourself for voting for the bigoted pussy grabber. If someone hurt themselves punching you in the face then you should actually be charged for making them do it. What option did they have?
Anyway, back to real Turtleboy. We wanted to see what it was like when you actually call this number. So we gave them a ring and the nice woman on the other end asked what we wanted to report. We told her that people were calling Turtleboy racist and sexist even though that stuff wasn’t true. She asked where these crimes were occurring and we told her Facebook. She told us that this was freedom of speech. Naturally then we asked her what constituted a hate crime. She said she’d go check and be right back. She then hung up on Turtleboy.
In other words, she has absolutely no idea what a hate crime is. I mean, I hated being called racist when I’m not, so…..what am I missing here? Oh yea, hate crimes only work one way. You can shit all over the anti-PC crowd because they’re the bad guys. But the PC patrol cannot have their feelings hurt. Ever. And whatever they report is the 1,000% truth. Murica.
We’ll call again and try to record it. You should do the same and send it to us. This could have hilarious consequences. Seriously, clog this line with bullshit calls, because it’s mere existence is a joke and we should be treating it like one.
P.S. This woman called me a deplorable:
Can I report her too?
