It is not enough to silently disagree with the corruption and evil of the current president and his administration. That silence gives tacit approval to the overt racism being spewed. That silence is seen by the predator-in-chief as acquiescence to concentration camps and draconian immigration policies.
We cannot allow our silence to be seen as support. We cannot allow our silence to encourage this cancerous evil in the white house.
Stand up. Speak out. Take action. Resist the evil that you see. In the end it is a spiritual matter.
Our country has a violent gun death problem. We have a mass shooting problem that has reached epidemic proportions. But, it is completely wrong to blame video games.
The charts above show that out of the top ten countries where video games are bought (and played) the most, only the United States has the demonstrable issue with gun violence. And the reason for that is clear.
We have a culture of violence that allows and even encourages mass shootings. We have an inciter-in-chief that stirs up hatred and violence at every opportunity, spewing racist and xenophobic rants to rally his base. We have the Senate Majority leader who has been bought and paid for by the NRA and Moscow. He refuses to even allow discussion on gun control.
The problem is not video games. The problem is rotten leadership.
It goes without saying that most good people don’t have a dozens of sexual assault claims against them, or over 2,500 lawsuits, or even a single accusation of rape of a minor. But then, most good human beings are not self-avowed sexual predators or pathological liars, either.
You don’t have to wear robes to be complicit in Trump’s racism and xenophobia. You don’t have to chant or resort to the violence he routinely incites.You don’t have to parrot all his pathological lies.
All that is necessary to demonstrate your support is to quietly smile and say nothing…exactly like the Republicans in Congress do every single day.
