A Racist America

Ladies and gentlemen, it will be interesting to see what excuses we can come up with to cover up the fact that our current president has openly proclaimed he is a racist and a sexist. In another one of his twitter rants, he told 4 members of congress that they should “go back” to the countries they came from(3 of the 4 were born in America). I ask you, when will it be enough? Are we a nation so overcome by hatred and deceit that we’re willing to overlook the fact that “Make America Great Again” really means “Make America White Again”?

Now that Trump has begun his roundup of undocumented people, is he now setting his sights for anyone of color who defies him? When the man that is supposed to be the leader of all its citizens chooses to only represent a few then yes, friends and family, this man has now revealed to the world his true nature and ‘White Supremacy’ is its name.

Donald J. Trump‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump FollowingFollowing @realDonaldTrump When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!”

I am not condoning the actions of these four congresswomen and I agree that these women are a bunch of radical loony tunes that probably would not be content no matter the circumstance. But they were elected by their peers to represent them in congress. Theirs is the voice of the constituents the serve. If not, it is up to those voices to condemn them or have them removed.

Radicals…isn’t that what the world once thought about another group and their opinions in the 1770’s?

Am I comparing these women to the likes of George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Samuel Adams, Thomas Jefferson or James Madison…no? But I am comparing their rights to free speech as citizens of the United States of America to what many brave men risked their very lives to win for us.

It is not up to the president to censure anyone’s opinion, no matter how loudly or vulgar it is presented. For anyone who can still stand and give excuses for his behavior, well… there is a word for that too.

  1. I know nothing about the congresswomen but surely ‘I am not condoning the actions of these four congresswomen and I agree that these women are a bunch of radical loony tunes that probably would not be content no matter the circumstance. But they were elected by their peers to represent them in congress. Theirs is the voice of the constituents the serve. If not, it is up to those voices to condemn them or have them removed.’ this paragraph describes the state of the country in relation to the president.

  2. It’s a very worrying time for you folk. Trump seems to espouse freedom of expression as long as it’s reflecting his own. The truly troubling aspect so many people apparently think he is right. It will be interesting to see what comes of it all in the next election phase you are going into, though I suspect he will continue to lie as he always has and bend people’s opinions in one way or another.

  3. I really shouldn’t … but down here if our PM behaved as he is behaving he’d be out in minutes, firstly he’d face racial vilification laws, secondly, lying as he does would be considered a serious breach of conduct and would also be deemed in contempt of parliament – which is extremely serious and would end his leadership. What I don’t get, is that your laws seem impotent in dealing with this area of leadership.
