I am so sick of the "Silent Majority" phrase

For one, they arenít silent....they are the loudest and most obnoxious people in this country, and like messing up their cars with dumb bumper stickers....Second, they arenít the majority which has been proven with losing the popular vote in 6 of the last 7 POTUS elections....and also being outvoted in House and Senate elections (but due to gerrymandering in the House, and small states in the Senate they stay in power)

1. I always called them "The Tyranny of the Minority."

or the "angry minority." Like you said the "silent majority" no longer exists in this country.

4. They are not nearly a majority

and most of their beliefs are so heinous and abhorrent, they only dared speak them in their stale dark basements and backrooms. Trump gave them courage to emerge into the daylight and the world is naturally and rightly horrified. They will be driven back into their hate-filled holes, as they have throughout history.

5. When the press sees the Blue Wave, we will no longer be called "silent"

They will have to find a new name for middle America.

6. The phrase was worn when Spiro Agnew used it

It has so long past its expiration date, it no longer smells bad

7. We're the majority. That silent majority shit was almost 40 years ago.

Things have changed dramatically and WE'RE the majority now, being run roughshod over due to unqualified skeevy people getting into office and staying there thanks to Teabagger gerrymanders after the 2010 election.

Thank goodness we're seeing the end of that shitty era and the beginning of something that I think will be really good.
