“a shocking pattern of illegality”

Image may contain: one or more people and text

Just the facts…the man is a criminal, through and through. And those still supporting him can no longer claim ignorance. They choose to support a lying, racist, xenophobe, whose only aim is to enrich himself while destroying everything good about our country.

There is a growing shame to being a Trump supporter that carries a stench that will not be easily erased. History will remember.

“just following the law…”

Defending actions that are obviously and inherently evil is not easy. The excuse of obeying the law does not fly. And blaming your actions on others also doesn’t work. Just ask all the Nazis who were tried for war crimes at Nuremburg at the end of World War II.

Every person in this corrupt administration who supports and defends the splitting up of asylum seeking families is guilty of evil. Creating internment camps for toddlers and infants is not defensible, period.

Call it crimes against humanity or anything else you want, But history will show that the actions taken on our border with Mexico will rank as another ugly, dark and evil episode in the history of the United States.

US Concentration Camps…for children

Somebody has to stop Trump! Not just trump! The entire administration!

This is a new low, even for an administration I thought could get no lower. Our nation has always had a policy of granting refuge to those seeking protection and asylum. Not any more; not under Trump.

Now we rip children from parents. We separate families asking for protection. We add to their trauma and their misery. Now we incarcerate them in concentration camps.

This is what Trump and his supporters call “Making America Great Again.”

 

what we truly need

And it still needs to be said in 2016.

These words by Bobby Kennedy we true when he spoke them in 1968.  Today, over 50 years later, they still resonate. Truth is a light that shines down through history undimmed by corrupt leaders espousing hatred and racism. What we really need in our country are true leaders willing to work for justice rather than enriching themselves and toeing the party line.

Resistance Alert

PAY ATTENTION, tRUMP/REPUBLICANS ARE TRYING TO SHUT THE MUELLER INVESTIGATION DOWN! WE MUST NOT LET THAT HAPPEN!! WE WANT THE **TRUTH!!** STAY WOKE & RESIST!!

I marched in opposition to the Second Gulf War, both in Washington, DC and New York. I spoke out to any who would listen about the grossly immoral actions our nation were taking. I made my voice heard.

Now, I will continue to speak out against those in power who are tearing apart our country and ripping up the very fabric of American society. I see #BLOTUS creating a dangerous personality cult that is far to similar to what Hitler did in Germany in the 1930s. We are already at the place where those in power can enrich themselves while ignoring the needs of the poor and middle classes.

History shows us where this road leads, It isn’t pretty, and it isn’t a place I want us to go.

Trump’s greed and his message of hate must be resisted at every opportunity. I will again take to the streets if the Trump-Russia investigation is derailed by any means. The right to peaceful protest needs to be used while it is still a right.

history’s simple test

Yup.

Donald Trump’s actions, and the attitudes behind them, are not normal for a leader of the free world. We all know that.

To remain silent in the face of such blatant lying, constant bullying, and morally disgusting racism is the same class of cowardice that allowed Adolf Hitler to come into power. The issue is not about party politics. It is far larger and far more consequential.

The issue is about basic human decency. The issue is about moral integrity. Are we going to allow such radical hate to continue destroying what our nation has always represented, or are we going to stand up and speak out in resistance to the clear destruction of our values?

As Mr. Rather states, history will judge us. The test is not difficult, but it requires us to act now. I have already answered. I will not be silent and I will not be complicit. I will resist. What about you?
