We Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet
August 16, 2017
Finally out of the closet, the Donald took up the neo-Nazi cause in earnest yesterday. In a shameless display of bullshit equivalence and pandering Trump defended the fine people who demonstrate by torchlight while chanting anti-Semitic and racist slogans.
The fine people who physically attack those holding opposing viewpoints.
The fine people who murder with ISIS tactics.
The fine people who fly the swastika alongside the American flag.
Yeah, those fine people.
So, we now stand warned. Fighting back makes us as “just as bad”, but not fighting back makes us marginalized or dead. Some choice, hey? And to be sure, the Donald’s stamp of approval guarantees an up-tic in alt-right activity. Why not when Trump’s not just a neo-Nazi sympathizer, but an actual neo-Nazi?
We definitely ain’t seen nothing yet.
The social plague named Trump is moving fast. In a mere two-hundred-eighty-one days since the fake election the Donald has taken us from the audacity of hope to the litany of fear – feared by our friends, enemies and citizens alike.
The Republic stands on the brink – of what, remains to be seen.
May as well fight back,
