  •  It's a scenario that is being repeated (17+ / 0-)

    in households across this country.  It makes me sad for you.  I live it daily.  The rightwingers I live with are my sister and her extremist drunken non-working boyfriend (who is 50 years old).  She has become as hateful as him - and it's shocking, really.  

    I fell on hard times recently and she took me in (though I pay her rent and buy my own food with a part time job I found a week after I moved in).  I guess that's reason enough for them to treat me like crap.  I've never seen anything like it - have never been treated so poorly.  It's stunning how deeply these folks can hate.  there is a light at the end of the tunnel for me - just have to hold out a little longer or until they kick me to the curb.  

    Your story will make me sad, for sure, but maybe writing it out will help you.  There's no rhyme or reason to how deeply these folks can hate, like a malignancy eating them up from the inside out, but sometimes just sharing those bad experiences helps to heal.

      I'd say get out as soon as you can, but you are probably already looking for ways to do so.  When you do go, let them know that you appreciated being given a place to stay and regroup, but that you cannot fathom living any longer with people so possessed by hatred.  They will of course erupt on you, because that is what they have been taught to do by their rightwing media of choice.

      Also, I'm wondering if people of this community can offer assistance to others in the form of a room to rent for an agreed upon term.  Wouldn't you rather live with a Kossack than the hatemongers?!!!
