Trump is a coward. But that doesn’t keep him from preaching his support for hatred and violence. His rallies were vile and repulsive, always containing elements of hate and support for physical harm. Sadly, he hasn’t changed and continues to prove that he is unfit to be our nation’s president.
Trump was on Long Island today, speaking to law enforcement officers. He has long spoken of his support for them as a group, and denies the validity of “Black Lives Matter.”
“When you see these towns and when you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you just see them thrown in, rough, and I said, ‘Please don’t be too nice,’” Trump said.
Sadly, when Trump is convicted of treason, he will be treated kindly and with respect. He wants to be sure that someone who commits a non-violent crime is treated as severely as a serial killer.
“Like when you guys put somebody in the car and you’re protecting their head, you know, the way you put their hand over, like, don’t hit their head and they’ve just killed somebody, don’t hit their head, I said, ‘You can take the hand away, OK?’” he added.
Sadly, the officers applauded.
Don’t be in denial. The American people are at war with their government and law enforcement. There is a complete lack of respect for minorities and immigrants in America. Our entire judicial system needs a complete overhaul. Law enforcement agencies are party to the hate crimes committed every day in America, and when they are encouraged by an immoral and anti-American president, the situation is aggravated to a level which can be called ‘martial law.’ Trump continues to adhere to the guidelines of Adolf Hitler in 1933 Germany.
When a member of the law enforcement community approaches an individual with the assumption that they are involved in criminal actions; when that is their primary assumption; innocent people are harmed and killed by the very men and women who have sworn to protect and serve them.
I was fortunate. I grew up in Los Angeles in the 1950’s and 60’s. I was white and never experienced unpleasant incidents with the police. When I was in high school, and became friends with young black men and Hispanics, I heard stories which at first seemed unbelievable. They were harassed frequently while simply walking or driving in mostly white neighborhoods.
The tragic events we have all witnessed today are the same situations experienced by my friends in the 1960’s, but in that decade we did not all have cameras readily available. Nothing has changed in law enforcement. The training remains the same and does not address America in the 21st century.
Trump has added more ‘fuel to the fire.’ This moronic and incompetent man has proven himself to be a white supremacist who hates our Constitution and would make America a fascist nation. Trump’s ultimate ambition is to take absolute control of our nation where he would be our last lawfully elected president.
America’s greatest claim is that we are the most diverse nation in the world. Trump is a minority; not the majority. He is an old, obese, bigoted white man who is completely opposed to my America. Let’s send him back to his golden tower and end the terror he has created in my country.
Please re-post; thank you.
