LINCHPINS & LYNCHINGS

Trump Offends to Please

Sometimes I meet a person who seems a little out of touch, most often due to a lack of understanding or knowledge of history. This frustrates me because if we fail to agree on facts there’s no way to have a serious discussion.

One of the conspiracy notions that I find most offensive is this bizarre belief that the World War II holocaust didn’t happen. My father was there. He saw the horror and I saw his pictures of the camps. The linchpins of most conspiracy groups simply ignore facts and spout insane reasons for their theories, and they continue to distort history.

According to the Tuskegee Institute, 4,743 people were lynched between 1882 and 1968 in the United States, including 3,446 African Americans and 1,297 whites. More than 73 percent of lynchings in the post-Civil War period occurred in the Southern states.The idea of comparing anything to lynching is an unwarranted, highly offensive act. When President Trump feels that his back is against the wall, he strikes back with a comment meant to take the attention off a problem and put himself back on the front page. He’s a headline-seeking thug, not a moral president and leader.

Comparing what is happening in the impeachment process to a “lynching” demonstrates that Trump has an amazing talent to offend those who have or will suffer in their lives. Can Trump be so out of touch that he doesn’t consider the impact of a Tweet on one group of voters and citizens? Why would African Americans ever take him seriously, much less vote for him?

Equally horrible was Lindsey Graham’s defense of the offence. He told reporters on Capitol Hill that the investigation into Trump is “a lynching in every sense.” Graham added, “I think it’s pretty well accurate—this is a shame, this is a joke. This is a lynching in every sense. This is un-American.” I had to tweet back to Senator Graham that impeachment is in the US Constitution, but lynching is not. Graham described impeachment as un-American, yet he directly participated in Bill Clinton’s impeachment. That was my motivation when I called Lindsey a “POLITICAL WHORE!” Lindsey Graham is so patronizing and hypocritical that it’s unbelievable South Carolina keeps reelecting him.

Some people ask why Trump seems to talk like a white supremacist, but they can find the answer in these three words, “Because he is.” Patriots of this country are trying to understand why the Donald would have pulled troops from Northern Syria and left our allies, the Kurds, to be slaughtered. When Trump lashes out at minorities, immigrants and anyone who disagrees with him, he shows his severe mental impairment. He’s involved in a major coverup and not fit to be President.

It’s high time we see his tax returns. We need to understand his wealth, whether he has paid taxes, whether he is financially beholding to foreign banks or countries and whether he committed crimes with money. How could any court say his finances should be private? He’s the President of the United States And we need to know these things… now.

The lynching of black Americans wasn’t solely about hangings. Many atrocities were committed during those heinous murders. There was no judge and jury; these slaughters were carried out by malicious mobs justifying their actions on the belief they were superior and had a right to kill anyone they hated, thus the term “hate crime.”

No one wants to mutilate and string Trump up on a tree. They just want to restore some law and order to our government. Donald J. Trump is not a good person and he’s a terrible President. Some may want him “locked up” after all is said and done, but just getting him the fuck out of the White House would be the best thing that ever happened to America.

Trump doesn’t know history. He calls every investigation into him a “witch hunt.” He obviously doesn’t comprehend that the cliché has a true meaning. Fourteen women and five men were executed by hanging during the Salem Witch Hunt trials. When he verbalizes that he feels like he is undergoing a “lynching” with all the impeachment talk, he should remember that thousands of people were lynched in this country. This blathering buffoon has no empathy for people or respect for American history.

Perhaps Congress will wake up and do their duty. Without impeachment, Donald Trump will simply continue to waste time, money and lives to bolster his fragile ego. What a waste and disgrace.

Read About The Country We Love

The book that tells it like it is…

Gold, God, Guns & Goofballs shows how we’ve wasted our GOLD on bad wars and corruption. While GOD is there for many people as a spiritual enrichment and the provider of glowing feelings, the truth is just praying and believing will not change our major arc. We don’t determine who gets a GUN. We aren’t sure if we have paramilitary groups ready to storm the White House or a White Castle. There is no control of weapons. The GOOFBALLS with the power constantly try to manipulate us into spending more money on bombs and tanks and wars. When all of our institutions are infected with neglect and fall in disrepair, we will only have ourselves to blame. This book is not an antidote for the left or right, it’s an accelerant to move the middle off their collective asses to go do something positive for America.
