With a “guaran-damn-tee” that “some panties are gonna get in a wad,” a young, gay man is fighting back against the racism and intolerance of Trump supporters in hilarious fashion. Andrew Joseph Duffer delivered an uninterrupted rapid-fire indictment of the fellow residents of his small Texas town in deliciously comedic fashion in an epic five-minute video posted to social media this week.
“I come from a country bumpkin, podunk town in northeast Texas, population’s less than 5,000,” Duffer begins in a whimsical Southern drawl. “Here hypocrisy, racism, and homophobia run rampant.”
Duffer spends the next five minutes pacing about his house as he pulls back the curtain on what life is like for people of color, immigrants, and LGBTQ+ persons in his hometown.
“If you’re a Black person and you can act white and dress white, whatever the f**k that means, you’re considered a white Black person and you won’t experience racism in its full capacity,” Duffer quickly explains. “Don’t misunderstand me, you certainly will experience racism, it just won’t be as bad.”
From there, Duffer quickly pivots to the town folk’s hypocritical homophobia.
“Gay people, same for you,” he continues. “If your parents are popular enough, well-established enough, and you’ve been seen at the church at least once then you won’t be destined for the lake of fire. All these years I thought it was the blood of Christ that brought salvation but in this instance, it was my daddy’s ability to do the townspeople’s tax returns. Who would have thought.”
After giving tips to his neighbors on how to properly hang a Confederate flag — because he’d hate to see their racism off-center, — Duffer calls them out for their support of Trump while they turn a blind eye to his policies.
“You can’t sit there and tell your Black friends, your immigrant friends, your Muslim friends, your Hispanic friends, your LGBTQ friends that you love and support them but you’re supporting Trump, because we’ve got Mexicans in cages, we have got Black people getting killed in the street, we’ve got gays being stripped of their rights left and right. I mean every day I wake up Donald Trump is doing something to attack these people.”
The delivery may be hilarious, but Duffer’s description of Trump supporters in his small Texas hometown should raise concerns. As Duffer points out, “it’s not a difference of opinion, it’s a difference of morality.”
