Iowa woman runs down teen because “she was Mexican”. State lawmaker accused of domestic terrorism uses Trump impeachment as defense. A man has been sentenced to 15 years after burning an LGBT flag hanging from a church. Texas woman calls American family ‘Illegal Dirty Mexicans’.
These are the new headlines in today’s America. This is an average week in the United States. What happened? Why the influx of hate in our country? Two questions that can easily be answered by one name; Donald Trump.
It’s not just a coincidence that this is all happening after Trump took office. The Trump administration has given a free pass for right-wing radicals and white, domestic terrorists to act out. Acting out is exactly what they are doing.
What pisses me off the most is that Trump supporters have their heads in the sand and continue to stand by their leader. They act as though none of this is happening. As a matter of fact, they not only refuse to believe it but they call it ‘fake news’ and leave it at that. Total, flat-out denial.
The hypocrisy of this so-called conservative base is disgusting. The republican party has totally destroyed their reputation. They’re not ‘right’. They’re not ‘conservative’. They’ve turned into bullies, thugs, racists and radicals. What gets me is they call themselves christians. Yet they standby watching these hateful acts and do nothing about it. Most encourage this and support what’s going on.
Just go to a Trump rally. It’s where the followers get recharged and motivated by their racist, hateful leader. He revs them up by insulting others while they cheer him on. He sends out subtle signals for them to act the same way. He gives the green light for insults, attacks and racism. They absorb it then act out.
So I ask the Christian right. I ask Trump supporters. At what point is this too much? When is it over the top? What kind of morals do you have? Do you approve what these radicals are doing? I’d love to hear some answers from Donny supporters. I GUARANTEE you, the only answers I will get is; “Well, so and so did this” and “so and so did that“. Answers like that proves my point that they support the racist, radical acts of their peers.
BTW, before you accuse the above stories of being ‘fake news’, here are the direct links:
