The Rot Trump Has Wrought

Why are things so bad? Well, anyone with half a brain will tell you that Donald Trump is the reason. I watched with intense interest as various Republicans spoke at Trump’s second impeachment hearing. Each of them admitted that what happened at the Capitol was bad and shouldn’t have happened. Some maintained that Trump should be held accountable for his language, but impeaching him would divide the nation. Oh, really?

Let me see if I understand. Someone inciting a riot and causing insurrection against the Congress of the United States, which also caused death, is a minor crime? What is this accountability you speak of my fellow Americans? Did you take the time to read the Constitution? Impeachment is the only way to hold a president accountable for high crimes and misdemeanors. You represent your voters, not some party boss or a broke-dick president.

President 2017 – 2021

I once had an exceptionally good lawyer counsel me about language I placed in an employment agreement. It would have given me the power to extract a pound of flesh had my worker violated certain rules. He asked me, “Would you want that rule used against yourself in the future?” The light bulb above my head flickered to life, “Gee, I never thought about it that way.” If Congressional members made a law that every president and vice president must disclose their tax returns 90 days before an election, it could affect them one day. That’s why we don’t have it. The members often serve themselves more than their constituents.

If reasonable people, even those with deep conservative pedigrees like Wyoming’s Liz Cheney and Kentucky’s Mitch McConnell, believe that Trump betrayed the oath of his office by urging a mob to march to the Capitol and wreak havoc, then what is driving the other Republicans to stand with Trump?

The purge is coming, because when something bad happens in America we all get sober and react quickly. Look at what happened after 9-11. Laws were passed, rewritten or ignored to get the bad guys. While that was successful, what was the cost? According to a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report published in October 2007, the US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan cost taxpayers more than $2.4 trillion. Some experts believe that more than 507,000 people were killed in the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. Let’s never forget that the umbrella name of that operation was Operation Enduring Freedom, and it was a total failure.

Operation Accountability isn’t going too well either. When discussion turns to the insurrection, Republicans quickly jump to the Black Lives Matter movement with its public protests and police brutality. Okay, the looters and shooters in those incidents are just as guilty as the marauders who invaded Washington, D.C. last week, but why compare two tragic events that are vastly different? False equivalencies are a preposterous way to debate any subject. Yeah, it’s terrible that the Romans killed Jesus Christ, but think about what his followers did to the rule of law. Donald Trump presents a “clear and present danger” to the Republic.

Had the January 6th attack been led by a foreign entity, Congress would have voted that very day to begin moving toward a solution. So, what resolution do we have for last week’s travesty? We’ve made a good start by finding and arresting the insurrectionists. Now, if only we knew where the leader of this STOP THE STEAL movement was hiding out we could prevent these radical, right-wing lunatics from doing more harm. There are those who say that impeaching, removing and arresting Donald Trump would make things worse. Great, let’s make it worse! Let’s flush the cockroaches and rats from the woodwork so we can see their faces.

Co-Conspirator U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik

Think of it this way. Remember back in school when a classmate acted out and the teacher asked who did it? All the other classmates became complicit by remaining silent. Then the teacher imposed a draconian punishment on the entire class, hoping the guilty kid would admit to being guilty. The purge is now underway in America, but too many self-serving assholes won’t stand up against Trump.

How might the purge unfold over time? First, more effective gun control laws will be enacted. Next, our own government will use the NSA to spy on all of us and use the Patriot Act to take away a little more of our freedom and due process. Every American should be mightily pissed off at these insurrectionists and work to cure the disease, not the symptom. Those Senators and Representatives who backed the ridiculous STOP THE STEAL campaign should be impeached. Now. They are modern day counterparts of Benedict Arnold and Aaron Burr and must be held accountable for their fraud and its result.

Ohio’s Representative Jim Jordan stood in the Capital and bragged about how great Donald Trump has been for America. He failed to mention the 382,000 people who died from COVID because of the failed policies and actions of the 45th President. He failed to mention the unrest in this country during the last eleven months that was mostly ignored by Trump. He is but one of the pitchmen for an immoral criminal who lied his way to the top of the Grand Old Party. A list of those elected officials who have been complicit apologists and deniers will be published.

This rotten fat man must be removed from office. Those who decide to “let it be” in a futile attempt to “heal the nation” will not please moderate Republicans and will certainly push the other side further away. Justice isn’t served by promoting a lie, seating a commission, or saying it’s too late to do something about what happened. Americans need action to see resolution, understand the facts and feel safe. Our immediate needs are total transparency and a purge of those who have pushed frauds, forgeries and fabrications. If our government is to move forward with a respect of freedom, we must hold this President accountable for his actions. Failing that, what will happen next time?

My heart is true. Donald John Trump should be charged, arrested, tried and convicted, earning the punishment the letter of the law stipulates: “Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office.” Trump has been impeached for a second time. Hold the trial… now!

America Must Act, Trump Must Go

America, we have a problem. For all the rhetoric and endless number of tweets, the current government in our country is not equipped to deal with the violence of mass shootings. Regrettably, there is no preventative effort on the part of the President and his minions of “yes” men and women around him.

There have been too many events of “active shooters” and “mass shootings” for us to bury our heads in the sand. As of this writing, 2019 has seen more than 250 mass shootings, with a death toll of 281 human beings. If you want to keep track of these horrible events there’s a website. It changes weekly and sometimes daily. Here’s where one can use the word “sad” and feel the true meaning.

Some experts boil it down to our higher accessibility and ownership of guns. We have 120.5 firearms per one hundred people, and the USA ranks number one in gun ownership around the world. Most believe that mass shooters suffer from some form of mental illness. Certainly, premeditated murder is the result of a sickness.

Clear minds state that a failure of government background checks due to incomplete databases and staff shortages puts guns in the wrong hands. Organizations like the NRA can say the Second Amendment is more important that protecting the lives of America citizens, but the gun problem in this country has been promoted by their actions and policies.

Certain experts point to the gap between people’s expectations for themselves and their actual achievements in life. This is where we get to the hate crimes and the driving force of getting back at OTHERS who they perceive have gained more at their expense. It’s another kind of sickness, this driving force of revenge as motive.

Some of these perpetrators have a desire for fame and notoriety, they seek their fifteen minutes of fame. The mass media coverage of the shooters and the social media sites that glorify them often downplay the victims, handing a prize to the person of hate.

Then we have an evil “copycat phenomenon,” where the acts of one person are taken by another human as a green light for further deeds of hatred. The notion of “suggesting” may be happening with Donald Trump’s rallies and his fear mongering toward people of color, immigrants and those who disagree with him. Trump’s harangues become a trigger for sick minds, but he will never admit it because he doesn’t believe there is anything wrong with using a tactic of hatred to get reelected. He would rather win than solve problems.

When Donald John Trump was sworn in as President, he said, “This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.” But the “carnage” is not ending, it’s getting worse. Some defend Trump’s political lack of action, but most will agree his messaging to motivate the nation away from hate and violence is scarce and weak. When he said that “there were fine people on both sides” right after a white nationalist plowed a car into peaceful counter protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, injuring many and killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer, our 45th President gave a license for violence and killing to the KKK, white nationalists, white supremacists and Neo-Nazis. For them, “Might is right.” After the chants of “Jews will not replace us” die down, the country still has no moral leader. Mr. President, they’ve killed Muslims, Jews, children and immigrants while you sit back, neglecting your obligation to protect our country.

Trump can repetitively chant about MS-13 and ISIS, but hundreds of people are dead on our soil from domestic terrorism. These shooters didn’t come from Syria or Mexico, they came from the white suburbs of America. They are being poisoned by Nazi, KKK and white nationalists online and the manifestos of these hateful shooters spell out their dogma in clear language. They believe that Trump supports them.

It’s too late for the Donald to undo the damage that he has rendered. He has no creditability to speak to the nation and give us fatherly advice on guns. His sons own lots of guns and he doesn’t even care about the number of weapons out there, unless they were to be used against him. Should that ever happen, we would have gun restrictions within hours. That happened in the streets of San Francisco when the Black Panthers decided to poke a hole in the Second Amendment by carrying loaded rifles in the streets. Gun laws changed dramatically then.

There are some who will claim that blaming Trump for mass shootings is unfair. Okay, that might make you happy for a few minutes but what are we going to do about the problem? Congress waited until hundreds of thousands of citizens were murdered by opioids to act against the pharmaceutical industry and their middlemen who were getting rich by death. People who write the laws of the land have never taken up arms against arms.

What if a strong denouncement of hate and threat of reckoning with these hate groups by the President happened NOW? If it stopped just one person from loading a gun and killing our people, that would be something good. Trump has the power, but he doesn’t have a strong enough command of the English language to pull it off. His lame tweet after the Saturday shooting in El Paso says it all, “God be with you all!” On Sunday morning, after another shooting in Dayton, Ohio, Trump tweeted “God bless the people of El Paso Texas. God bless the people of Dayton, Ohio.” This is what we get from Trump. It’s obvious that he doesn’t know what to do or even what to say. He’s not the Pope, he’s the fucking President of the United States and if he doesn’t do something about the hate and violence in America, he is clearly not worthy of the presidency. He must go.

Impact of Trump on America

The book that tells it like it is…

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.

Trump’s Vacuous Reactions

Have you noticed that when Trump responds to various things, he sometimes seems passionate and focused, while at other times he offers a rather perfunctory reaction? If you assume that the 45th President of the United States has some thought process at work before he speaks, wouldn’t you also believe that he would try to be a respected leader with his words.

70% of everything Trump says is negative. He continually sounds more like a small-town politician rather than the leader of the free world. And because of his lack of precision when presenting his viewpoints, many people on the other side paint him with a justified brush of racism and xenophobia. They use his own words to reach their conclusions. Donald Trump is a horrible communicator. Consider the sheer volume of his statements and orders that must be explained by others in the administration. Of course, the common thread in the explanations from Trump supporters and, sadly, those in Congress is a tinge of anti-press putdown.

Hate speech and crimes in America are on the rise. In 2017, hate crimes were up by 17% (7,175 incidents): 1,679 of them were religious bias crimes, 58.1% were anti-Jewish and 18.9% were against the Islamic community. These stats are from the FBI. While some people are quick to assign blame to Trump, hatred seems to be a global trend that must be intelligently addressed. However, don’t look to Trump for leadership here; he’s not capable.

Our president is missing a gut feel for the realities of life in America. I have often believed he treats Putin well because he fears being poisoned by him. The reason he doesn’t take a strong stand against the White Nationalists, Neo-Nazis and the failing KKK is because he’s afraid they will turn against him politically. Some Neo-Nazis have already abandoned him because of his stance on Israel. Trump’s bailiwick is fear and hate, while his lack of understanding of real people could become his Waterloo.

Think of that hate cult known as the National Rifle Association. Trump fears the guys with the guns, and they manipulate his fear by motivating him to stand behind the 2nd Amendment in fake, patronizing ways. No matter what state Trump visits for his rallies, guns are not permitted in the building. Of course not. GUNS ARE DANGEROUS and there is no way the Secret Service could protect the president if people carried guns into a rally. Despite this, Trump pushes for guns in public places like schools and churches. You know, to shot back at the bad guys.

In his response to the gunfire in Poway, California, Trump gave his obligatory comments and then said that it “might be a hate crime,” before getting a report from authorities. Why would he do that? And then he tacked on, “that’s unbelievable.” Does he mean, that a hate crime is unbelievable, or that it’s unbelievable that in 2019 it’s happening again? As is typical of this moronic man, his sentence construct gets him in trouble and misguides us.

Trump dismisses major realities like global warming and climate change without a drop of common sense. He doesn’t relate to the pain that extreme weather is causing to Americas in every state. He’s disinterested in taking a strong stance against foreign meddling in our elections because he thinks it’s good for him. He obviously doesn’t care about people, only himself.

The Trump surrogates on TV keep referencing Donald’s frustration about how the investigation into Russian interference was conducted and his belief that it shouldn’t have started in the first place. It’s appalling when semi-literate Congressional leaders paint a picture that it’s more important protect the President fragile temperament than to fortify the electorate against fraud and deception. Who are these people?

In pitching his book, Mike Lee of Utah talked about how the problem is Congress, even though he is a member of Congress. He complains bitterly about those “unelected” career government people who have done such terrible things to Trump. That’s rich. Hey, Mike, you do realize we didn’t vote for Jared Kushner, or Ivanka, or Mick Mulvaney or Betsy Devos and the rest of the low-life ideologs who are ruining America right before our very eyes. They are political appointees who should be doing their damn jobs to protect the Constitution and to help America.

Kushner says that a “few ads” on Facebook was no big deal and claimed that the Mueller Investigation did more harm to democracy than Russian interference. You lost, little boy. Perhaps your ancestors from Belarus found living under Russian rule for so long wasn’t all that bad. Well, not all that bad after getting past the imprisonments and executions.

Hardly anyone talks about GUNS these days. They focus on HATE. The thousands of parents and families who have been torn to pieces by gun violence in America have never lost their focus. We will never get any effort to curtail the White Nationalists, Neo-Nazis or the KKK from Donald John Trump. He’s simply chicken-shit-scared of them. Trump will never make a grand speech or produce a plan to reduce the hate that is flaring up in America. He holds the blowtorch in his small little hand while insincerely protesting these “sad things.”

The vile and derogatory disparagement Trump spreads at his rallies, press conferences and online tweets has penetrated the mass mentality of our nation. His highly destructive attitude toward anyone who thinks differently than him is appalling and offers a back-stage pass to radical minds intending to harm.

Trump is an idiot when it comes to understanding the fragile intellects of those who follow him. He truly believes that most Americans are so stupid he can get away with anything. He dismisses the people who are trying to tell him what he is doing wrong as haters. By simply using the word, he is promoting hate. Since Trump demonstrates a belief that he’s above the law, a lunatic-coward wielding an AR-15 believes he can make a difference, too. Sadly, people die when such errant political rhetoric is acted out. Trump has blood on his hands, just like Pontius Pilate. Happy Passover.

Trump’s Inability to be Presidential

In today’s hyper partisan, social media fueled reality, every word, thought and prayer is overanalyzed by a mass media gone mad. And when something bad happens, anywhere in the world, people turn to their leaders for fatherly, or motherly, guidance to get them through the trauma.

Even if you are a Donald Trump supporter, you must admit that the man rarely says the right thing during a crisis. His inaction on situations he simply disagrees with may be a more critical problem, like grounding a fleet of questionable jets. Why did he wait so long? Was he weighing Boeing stock against peoples’ lives?

Trump’s inarticulate nature exposes his real lack of intelligence and leadership talent. After each of his controversial utterances, others run behind him to the TV cameras to explain away his confused meanings and, sometimes, outright lies. This is why he has never graduated to the presidential seat of decorum.

Donald Trump, like a trapped mouse in a house with a larger than life cat, is off his meds and tweeting so much he needs a time-out. The cat in this metaphor could very well be Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a woman even Steve Bannon admires for her methods against Trump. And just like the coy house cat, she will play with her prey before finally rendering it lifelessly limp at the doorstep of the American public.

But the world keeps turning and bad events get churned into our awareness. When a neo-Nazi white nationalist decided to massacre a group of praying people, New Zealand’s Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, spoke to her nation. Yes, we heard and felt her pain, but we also experienced her resolve to do something about the gun laws in her country. She clearly stated an action of resolve.

When Donald Trump was asked about whether he thought white nationalism is a spreading problem in the world, he replied, “I don’t really. I think it’s a small group of people that have very, very serious problems, I guess. If you look what happened in New Zealand, perhaps that’s the case. I don’t know enough about it yet … But it’s certainly a terrible thing.”

Rather than overanalyze that response, I’d like to point out something systemic in the way Trump talks and tweets. He has a strange inability to comprehend the gravity of his words and actions. It’s as if he doesn’t realize that he’s President of the United States. And there is another disturbing tell in the Donald’s attempts.

When more than 130 people were killed in Paris in November of 2015, Trump chanted a mantra that the cure for mass shootings is guns for people on the other side so they can shot back at the bad guys. But when a white nationalist or Neo-Nazi uses a gun or car to kill people, Trump becomes a deer in the headlights. Without an empathy gene, he simply cannot show any.

Trump’s dismissive response to the threat of White Nationalism sounded like he was trying to protect those from that ilk who support him. Maybe, in his hazy way of thinking, they would protect him should something bad happen to his presidency. Those aren’t my thoughts; they are his words.

Michael Kennedy is a lawyer who represents Trump’s ex-wife. He claims Ivana Trump said that from time to time her husband would read a book of Hitler’s collected speeches, My New Order, which he kept in a cabinet by his bed. Now I would be crazy to promote or disseminate a conspiracy theory and must ask why Ivana Trump would lie about this? It makes sense, given everything Trump says and does.

In 1990, Donald Trump was interviewed by Playboy magazine. Heed the seeds of white nationalism in his words, “I’m a strong believer in genes, that my kids can be brought up without adversity and respond well if they have the genes.” He amplified that thought during an interview with Oprah Winfrey saying that people can be successful if they have the right genes. He uses his uncle’s professorship and his father’s success in business to prove his “good genes” self-evaluation.

In his manifesto, the New Zealand terrorist who killed 50 human beings asks himself, “Are you a supporter of Donald Trump?” and then answers, “As a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose? Sure. As a policy maker and leader? Dear god no.” And if you have the stomach to read his vomit, you will see that his justification for the killing of Muslims is this dogma that says replacement of non-Europeans is the duty of the white nationalist. He clearly believes people having white genes are better than those with brown genes, because their blood is not clean. He even uses an inept warning to his “special” race that they “may find their very own genes being bred out of existence.”

The Prime Minister of New Zealand received his diatribe minutes before the massacre took place. This was a political act of terror intended to create a civil war in America. And Donald J. Trump never used the word “terrorist,” why?

The media rightfully attacked our idiot-in-chief and his response sounded much like his comments after Charlottesville. He tweeted more than 50 times, his fingers complaining and farting. He called out Fox News for suspending Tucker Carlson and Jeanne Pirro, demanding that his state TV reinstate them. And in a kind of demonic trance, he once again disrespected John McCain. Trump’s tweets are psychological tics, a disorder he cannot control.

If he was a convicted murderer, Trump’s tweets could be used to demonstrate insanity. But he’s a “stable genius” who with every tweet disproves his whole “successful gene” theory. He’s the bastard son of Iago, the most devastating of Shakespeare’s characters. He destroys several people’s lives in the play Othello, including two deaths through the manipulation of everyone around him. Yes, read it, Donald Trump is Iago. The worst lesson from the play is that even though Othello attacks Iago, the villain is still alive at the end of the play. Remember, impeachment isn’t death, it’s justice. And what America and the world needs right now, is justice.

It’s Easy to Be a Critic

Donald Trump is trying to win an intellectual war outside of the White House, while the real war is raging in his brain. As I have written on these pages in the past, the political spectrum is like a giant clock, where the moderate middle sits at 12 o’clock and the radical left and the radical right faceoff at 6 o’clock.

What the Donald doesn’t understand is that he is creating an opposite force by revving up the Alt-Right. He has been eating a diet of analysis from the false prophets over at Fox News about “his base.” Trump creates his self-worth based on what he owns, not what he thinks. He is so deeply sucked into the rapture of cult of personality that he no longer sees his role as being President of America. Instead, he has become the leader of a gang, his base, the owner of the base.

Long before Trump decided to be president, there was a force out there with an agenda, disruption by anarchy. The history of this broad definition of people who protested, organized and acted out against the established norm can be traced back to ancient Greece and Rome. Teddy Roosevelt became President because of the actions of one anarchist. Look it up.

The situation today is a far greater problem for this so-called President because he truly doesn’t know what to do. His instincts, and guidance from Jeff Sessions, will probably lead to action precisely opposite of sound reasoning. This could hasten a culture war between factions and only muddy the political waters in Congress.

The comments Donald J. Trump made after the Charlottesville tragedy were a failed attempt to be intellectual and accurate. His communication skills were simply not up to the task. He created a strong Alt-Right with his comments and nurtured a favored nation status for hate groups, such as the KKK, Neo-Nazis and White Nationalists. Worse, he didn’t realize that he’s stirring the far-left anarchist pot, as well.

One might make a joke that the KKK has taken off their silly robes and masks, while the left has created ISIS-like costumes and masks to cover their identities. I suppose they truly believe in this deep state theory and fear that if they are seen, they will be captured and persecuted by the power lords in the government. And they will be.

Inside the Trump bunker, Homeland Security and the FBI have decided that these people are “domestic terrorists,” spreading the fear that anti-fascist groups and neo-Nazis are bracing for an all-out war. In fact, they have launched an investigation into the left but don’t take the far-right all that seriously. Both Homeland and Justice clearly believe there is something less dangerous about people who hate Jews, blacks and immigrants than those who want to break windows in buildings where rich people in power are making the real money in America.

By acknowledging and, in a sense, promoting the “alt-left,” Trump has once again exposed himself as Sean Hannity’s puppet, more than Putin’s plaything. Whatever Sean vomits on his Fox News show, Trump adds to presidential platform within 24-hours. We can only hope that when Fox finally fires Hannity, they will hire someone smarter for that time slot who our great Orange Leader will mimic.

With his “…on many sides” mistake, Trump has set up his critics. He tried to be the President of all protesters, but he created an equality scenario that proposes anyone who protests is automatically wrong. He was trying to point out that there were anarchists at the rally in Charlottesville, but failed to understand what made him president in the first place; people hear only some of the words.

I have a suggestion which some might find draconian, but could be practical. Let’s pass a rule for protesters requiring them to wear the uniform of the group they support. You know, like armies wear uniforms. Now, I can hear my libertarian friends screaming and yelling, “That’s just another government over-reach!”

The national guard were fooled by a group of Alt-Right para-military-types who were decked out in full camo with weapons similar to army issue. The guardsmen even asked their commander, “Are they with us?” That is extremely dangerous.

So, yeah, the Neo-Nazis should be in brown shirts with arm bands. I am sure they have seen pictures of that look. And the KKK, sorry boys, but let’s get the white robes back; we need to know who you are. In addition to carrying flags, uniforms will more precisely indicate who’s who. The irony clicking out of my keyboard right now is hurting my head.

Trump has a problem with the far-right, he has a problem with the far-left and he is disliked by 61% of regular citizens in this great country. We all know he wants to be loved, but when he gives too much love to the other kids the normal members of the family become resentful.

Trump Goes Dark and Dim

As the moon moves in front of the sun, the president is feeling the heat of his own party. Many loyal red-blooded Americans can’t understand why Trump will not condemn Neo-Nazis, White Nationalists and the KKK. He seems to have the same problem with Russia. Is Trump really a typical American?

The debate about confederate memorabilia around these lands was started by those who want to clear the air. When a young boy looks up at a big statue of a soldier, he automatically thinks that person must have been a hero. The meaning of the word confederate is a person who works with others, especially in something secret or illegal. A confederate is an accomplice, while a hero is a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. You know, like a war hero.

The statues exist to celebrate the values behind the war by the KKK in the 1920s, not something that would have been appropriate right after the Civil War. Imagine if someone suggested we put up statues for Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. They were convicted spies. The people we are protecting under the guise of history and culture were traitors to the United States of America.

The only reason all those “great” Confederate leaders weren’t executed is because the people who signed the peace treaty wanted to heal America. Let’s put it in perspective. If ten of our current generals commanded a division of US forces to attack America, those officers would be charged with treason. If convicted, they would be executed. Surely, we wouldn’t build a statue to honor the guy who killed our soldiers at Fort Hood. No, of course not. Ironically, Fort Hood was named after Confederate General John Bell Hood.

After the civil war ended in 1865, the clear and calm minds in the US government decided to get beyond, as it’s called in the south, “our recent unpleasantness” rather than pouring salt in the wound. Today, we are tearing off the bandage. For what? It might not seem important to President Trump, but 620,000 people died in our Civil War, so it’s a little more than an argument over moonshine.

We aren’t going to spend tons of money today to remove the carvings from Stone Mountain in Georgia and Mount Rushmore is not going to be altered, but no one can defend Robert E. Lee by carrying a Nazi flag. That makes no sense. When you carry a Nazi flag, you are saying you believe that Jews should be killed. Really? Where is our great orange leader’s defense of the First Amendment? Oh, he probably hasn’t read that lately, if ever.

The Alt-right can carry the “stars and bars” (Confederate flag) and parade around claiming that they are defending white people from the diversification of America, but that would make them foolish, or as Steve Bannon declared, “A collection of clowns.”

I may sound a little “Yankee” here, but when I see the stars and bars flag on a truck, I think, “There goes another redneck.” And what makes a redneck bad? Nothing really, but behind the flag is, at least, a small symbol of racism. It instills fear in some African-Americans and presents a distorted view of the war between the states. The U.S. flag doesn’t instill fear, it instills pride. Big difference.

Abraham Lincoln freed more than three million people from the chains of slavery. Trump cannot change history. The Civil War was fought over SLAVERY. You cannot purify the southern cause of the war by leaving the statues up.

We rightfully celebrate Lincoln, but we should also remember he was assassinated by someone who thought the same way as many of those people marching in our streets to protect those statues today. Is that Donald Trump and the Alt-right want to be associated with? An assassin?

The radical right might be saying, hey, I don’t want to kill anyone, I just want this beautiful statue to remain in my park because I want to protect my “history and culture.” But what you are truly saying is you want to celebrate Southern trader soldiers to protect “white” peoples culture.

Yes, it was more than “recent unpleasantness.” This bigotry elected Donald Trump and we see it at work as he attempts to exploit the terrible events in Charlottesville, Virginia to his advantage. Hopefully my grandchildren won’t have to march in the streets to get Donald Trump statues torn down. We don’t see that many Richard Nixon statues, do we?

Not all people who live in the southern states carry ethnic hate, but Donald Trump fails to understand that his language carries weight and hurts people’s feelings. He has no soul or empathy with matters of political correctness or human suffering. He has just equated himself with the KKK and Neo-Nazis, does he realize that?

If you treated people with respect, you would see that your confederate flag-waving is a little wink-wink for the White Nationalists. If you want to protect your heritage and culture, erect a statue of a large pig on a spit with a bowl of grits and leave racist politics out of it. And if you are making grits, would you please add cheese? I prefer a little color in mine.
