Last night dozens of white supremacists held a rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. As you might expect, the event resulted in multiple scuffles, injuries and several arrests. America has not experienced this type of event since the 1960’s other than the occasional celebration by the KKK which allows them to wear their hooded robes and celebrate hatred. But this event in Virginia is another segment of the “Trump Effect.” These despicable and anti-American individuals have become empowered as one of their own defiles the White House. Don’t allow yourself to believe that these white terrorists have not previously existed; they have been hiding in the shadows. Trump has given them a false sense of courage and importance.
During last night’s rally, these vile individuals shouted slogans including “Jews will not replace us.”
When the scuffles ensued, University of Virginia President Teresa A. Sullivan spoke to the press. She said that she was “saddened and disrupted by the hateful behavior displayed by torch-bearing protesters.”
“I strongly condemn the unprovoked assault on members of our community, including University personnel who were attempting to maintain order. …The violence displayed on Grounds is intolerable and is entirely inconsistent with the University’s values,” she said in a statement.
During Trump’s disgusting “rallies,” he encouraged anger, hatred and violence. His ‘basket of deplorables’ continue to support his demands.
The “Trump Effect” has exposed the dark side of America. Millions of men and women continue to reject the diversity which makes our country unique. They can’t halt the fact that with every generation our country is less ‘white.’
I live in Northern Nevada; not the most liberal area of America. However, when my wife and I were shopping the other day, I pointed out to her a rather surprising number of couples and children who were ‘mixed race.’ They are America’s future.
Last year millennnials replaced baby boomers as the largest voting bloc in America. This is good news for the future of our nation. As old, white men, like myself, lose their earthly bonds, America will celebrate a decrease in white supremacy and bigotry in general.
Please re-post; thank you.
