Trump Jails Babies
Several months ago I decided not to post any more of my political rants on this blog. This has been a hard decision for me, especially lately with Trump's decision to separate children from immigrants on our southern border seeking asylum. That's right, immigrants seeking asylum, not people illegally crossing our border. These people are presenting themselves at the border seeking asylum.
Now Trump has decided with his new policy, and don't believe his lies that this is "the Democrat's fault", of using children as pawns to build his fucking wall. That's right, the wall that he claimed "Mexico is going to pay for", another Trump Lie.
Trump's ONLY goal is to satisfy his base so he can appear at his "rallies", strut down the runway to the rapturous applause of "I can shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and not lose any supporters" audience.
Trump is holding these children as hostages. How can anyone be that soulless?
I can write thousands of words about the venality of Trump but I will keep this short.
This atrocity has to stop.
This is not who we are as Americans.
Trump is making American great again? Each day we sink deeper and deeper into becoming the pariah of the world.
This breaks my heart.
I never thought I would say this in my lifetime. I am actually ashamed to be an American today.
The one thing I and we always had in this country was that we were better morally than the rest of the world. Sure, of course there was and is the underbelly in this country of darkness of the American soul.
A black men dragged to death behind a pickup truck just because he was black. James Byrd.
A gay man tied up to a fence crucified style, tortured and left to die. Matthew Shepard.
That element will always be in our country. Fortunately it was almost always been held in check.
Now we have a person as president who actively seeks to divide us. And to shore up his base he appeals to the worst of us.
Last night on during a TV interview, Corey Lewandowski, a former Trump campaign chairman, mocked the Down Syndrome child of a woman who was arrested trying to cross our southern border for asylum.
This is where we are at now folks. Today I am ashamed to call myself American.
