Speaker Paul Ryan was surprised to hear that there have been an uptick in post-election hate crimes and abuse. The rest of us are all too familiar with everything that's been going on now that a racist, misogynist, homophobic, Islamophobic, xenophobic bigot has been elected.
He's so unaware of this, so Samantha Bee has suggested we all show him what he's been missing and #TellPaulRyan.
Write to him with your personal stories. (If you're lucky enough not have experienced any of this firsthand, print out an explanation of someone else's story. There are enough to go around.) Just let him know about all the hateful, racist, sexist, threatening events that have happened to you and people you know...
Mail them to:
Office of the Speaker
H-232 The Capitol
Washington, DC 20515
You can also call his constituent hotline: 1-888-909-RYAN (7926)
Please don't be rude or disrespectful when you call. Just clearly let them know what has been happening to you and that you want Ryan - and the rest of the government - to take a stand against the hateful rhetoric that Donald Trump and Mike Pence has encouraged.
