I cannot believe what I’m about to say. I got into an “argument” with people yesterday about Rowling, lol
I came to a conclusion afterwards. I would actually trust Trump more, than Rowling or any of her cult.
Hear me out, lol
The whole Jan 6th thing, and the whole transphobe thing is really eye opening. When I hear about things from Jan 6th, it’s not surprising. When I hear about anti-trans things, it keeps shocking me, because it KEEPS getting worse. And it’s not just that it keeps getting worse, it’s that grown adults, who apparently don’t like Trump, don’t care, just like Trump. They keep making excuses for Rowling.
But the difference is, unlike Rowling. You know that’s what Trump’s like. You know, there’s no surprises. Like you can’t sit there and say that you didn’t see what Trump’s done, totally coming.
Yet, Rowling had said SO much crap, and that’s all it’s been, is crap. Like when you look back, she always shady. Yet, people put it down too, oh I/she didn’t mean it like that” And she would ALWAYS say “that’s not how I meant it”. She clearly did. How does ONE person get it wrong so many bloody times, and they don’t mean it “that way”.
Because I never really got into Harry Potter, I never really paid attention. It was actually a fellow reader, who made me pay attention. They give out great reviews and they call authors as they see it. Which is nice. She was the first person who talked about Rowling’s problematic history. It was more to do with her anti-Semitism, which is really iffy.
In “Harry Potter and the Philospher’s Stone” (2001) The Floor of the Wizarding Bank Gringotts is decorated with the Star of David, this is a reference to the fact that it’s run by a race of anti-Semitic caricatures.
The “woman” whose Tweet “accidentally” Rowling liked, I kid you not, that’s what she said. Wasn’t just horrifically transphobic, but she was also horrifically anti-Semitic. She routinely accused George Soros of funding the trans lobby. Like, again, this stuff keeps happening over and over.
You just KNOW if Trump did a SINGLE ONE of those things, that they would be all over him. You just KNOW it, because it IS wrong.
