As of today, we must move forward with this fact:
The President of the United States is a racist, white-nationalist, bigot.
There can be no more doubt. He’s gone after Mexicans, Muslims and has now given aid and comfort to Nazis.
There is no pivot. There will never be a pivot. There was never going to be a pivot. He will not “become” more Presidential.
He’s simply not capable.
He is a disgrace to the Office and to the country.
His performance today was completely unhinged and demonstrated that he has absolutely no grasp on the history of this country. None. Nor does he have a grasp on basic facts. Listening today, I was literally sick to my stomach.
He has energized the white-nationalists, Nazis and the KKK. He has validated their behavior. They will be the first to tell you this and that alone should lead the President to stand up and say “No. Not you. Get out.” But not him. He stood with them today. He stands with them everyday.
His own daughter, son-in-law and his grandchildren fall into the category of people that those he has validated want eradicated from the face of the earth. His. Own. Family.
Republicans who coddled him and those who voted for him… you own this. 100% it’s on you. Republican leadership has already, time and again, demonstrated that they will not stand up to him because they need him to get tax breaks for their wealthy friends and to make sure that they consolidate their voting districts. If they do not act, now, swiftly, decisively, it will be the end of the Republican Party for generations, if not for ever.
As a country we have faced down evil time and again. Citizens of all races, religions, economic status have stood shoulder to shoulder in fox holes and said “No.” This time…again….now… the evil is in our house and it must be evicted.
These are not our principles. These are not our values. They must be shouted down and they must not be allowed to see the light of day ever again.
We’re headed into the darkest days of this nation’s history and it’s up to each and every one of us to stand up, say and do what is right, so that we can come out the other side and make this country the beacon of freedom, inclusion, hope, peace, and love that it can be.
God Bless The United States of America.
