Washington Post reporter Aaron Blake published the Trump/Pence campaign’s latest “FOR PATRIOTS ONLY” email. In it, the campaign says it is assembling a “Trump Army.” It is unconcerned with subtlety, directly extending Trump’s own calls for, as he put it, “Second Amendment” responses to Americans protesting police violence. The “President,” you see, is raising a brownshirt army:
“The President wants YOU and every other member of our exclusive Trump Army to have something to identify yourselves with, and to let everyone know that YOU are the President’s first line of defense when it comes to fighting off the Liberal MOB.”
These are the first two paragraphs in an article published in the ‘Daily Kos, written by “Hunter.”
I believe that this is important and I hope to spread this very upsetting plan by his fascist supporters. As Trump begins to reveal his fascist and racist beliefs more and more, real Americans must be informed about what we who attempt to inform our nation’s people of the truth every day are learning. It is also important that every eligible voter makes a promise to his or herself that voting in the upcoming election is mandatory if our country is to prevail.
Trump would repeal the the first amendment if he could find a way. He is following Adolf Hitler’s playbook exactly. He began with his Fuhrer’s most important tactic: “Tell a lie often enough and the people will believe it.”
Trump has encouraged violence against his critics for five years. He has had support from some of our nation’s most vociferous traitors. Two of these men who hate my America are Pastor Rick Wiles, and Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton.
Wiles has received White House Press Credentials from Trump at least twice. Claiming to be a Christian Evangelical leader is a lie in itself. Not once in the New Testament did Jesus Christ encourage his followers to take violent action against the men who chose to be His enemies.
Wiles has suggested that liberal ‘activists, Jews, and gays should be rounded up, tortured, and sent to Guantanamo Bay.
Multiple times Cotton has attempted to undermine actions by the President: not Trump, he’s white, but when President Obama acted in his capacity as our nation’s leader, the traitor from Arkansas made attempts to destroy a real president’s efforts for the American people.
Our army is much bigger than Trump’s will ever be. This is our nation; it does not belong to Trump and his white supremacist cult. All I can say is “Vote on November 3rd!”
