This Republican Party in name only is the party of ‘lawlessness and deceit.’ Moscow Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, Chuck Grassley, and the rest continue to ignore Trump’s many Constitutional violations and crimes against our nation’s people. They are more interested in their personal ambitions and the success of their party than the future of America and the American people.
From his first hate rally Trump encouraged his cult to feel anger and hatred for anyone who does not agree with his distorted view of my America. He also incites violence against his enemies. Now, because his only goal is to reopen American business, he is suggesting that his ignorant cult violate state laws. This IS a first in my lifetime. This from the man who stood before a few thousand ignorant men and women on January 20, 2017, and promised to “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic.” He lied, again.
No one else will, so I feel compelled to tell the absolute truth. In 1958 “The Ugly American,” written by Eugene Burdick and William Lederer, criticized America’s diplomatic corps under the leadership of Dwight D. Eisenhower. This novel describes the agency’s arrogance and attitude of superiority. This was also reflected in the actions of American tourism. The term, “ugly American,” is apropos to the actions by members of Trump’s cult who are breaking the law and protesting the “stay at home laws” in mostly blue states. Although the numbers are small, the mainstream media is offering endless coverage of their crimes, often defending their illegal and immoral actions. The media should be praising real Americans who are concerned not only for themselves and their loved ones, but also for every other person in our nation, and are doing the right thing.
These individuals are whiny, selfish, weak-minded, and care more about Trump than their country. The truth is they are being forced to stay in their homes, not in prison camps or sweat shops. Most of these protestors are playing with their electronic toys when they are at home, now they simply have even more time to waste.
They are not in danger of physical attacks from their own government as are the people of Africa, North Korea, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, or Venezuela. They have been asked to make a very small sacrifice and stay in their homes.
Trump is a spoiled, selfish, greedy man-child. His cult serves him because they are like-minded. Shame on these worthless pretend-Americans.
