So a tiny fraction of neo-Confederate losers have directed the awesome power of their pork-rind-dust encrusted keyboards towards the White House citizen’s petition function as a way to express their great sadness at the ass kicking America gave them on Election Day. These simpletons have started petitions asking permission for their State to leave the Union. Once a petition reaches 25,000 signatures, the White House will issue a response (I expect some politely worded dismissive snark, but an amusing gif might be more appropriate).
In response, other citizens are using the tool to mock the impotent keyboard commandos of wingnutopia with petitions like:
Peacefully grant the City of Atlanta leave to withdraw from the State of Georgia and remain part of the United States
Peacefully grant the city of Austin Texas to withdraw from the state of Texas & remain part of the United States
Deport Everyone That Signed A Petition To Withdraw Their State From The United States Of America
Strip the Citizenship from Everyone who Signed a Petition to Secede and Exile Them
Somehow, I think there will be more of this stuff as neo-Confederates use social media to throw their pitiful public tantrums and others use it to make fun of them.
Still, like all social media tools, the White House petition tools offers the opportunity for moments of brilliance, like this:

These kind of things come down quickly as they are just too snarky, but I was glad I got to see it.
How about an open thread…
