Our country, and the values it has always represented to the rest of the world, is being systematically destroyed from within. The current administration is the most corrupt in our nation’s history, and is led by an self-acknowledged sexual predator who is far friendlier with Vladimir Putin than our own military and intelligence services.
We stand by silently at our own peril. We are watching as our nation is being ripped apart without acting. The time to speak out is now.
A follow-up to yesterday’s post, this powerfully direct statement by Eugene Robinson is a plea for all of us to stand up to the intentional destruction of common decency that the election of the #BLOTUS represents. The open misogyny, ugliness, and vindictive behavior of those in power should never be normalized.
No person, especially the President of the United States, deserves respect when basic human decency seems to be a foreign concept to them. Leadership requires far more than wealth and power.
When children act inappropriately we are quick to teach them how to behave properly. Isn’t it time we do the same with the leader of the free world?
