Protest Donald Trump Every Step Of The Way
I do not take this tone often. I do not take this position of urging for protests often.
But I have never witnessed in my lifetime the level of nationalistic bombast, xenophobia, race-baiting, or religious intolerance coming from a presidential candidate. What is now taking place in this country is jarring to my sensibilities and decades of reading and learning. The words and actions of the leading contender for the Republican nomination is a danger to this nation, and the world community who depends on our leadership.
Therefore there is no other way to frame my thoughts than to be most plain in how I feel.
Donald Trump and the Brown Shirts were shut down tonight in Chicago as protestors prevented the bile and hate from taking the stage. People in Germany in the 1930’s needed to have fought harder to stop Hitler. History proves why that needed to have happened. It is that serious in America now, and we know it.
Americans can stop Trump. We must stop Trump.
Tonight Trump was stopped from holding his rally. These protests need to keep growing.
About six weeks ago I wrote the following words to a friend and sadly what I pondered in part is coming true.
I really ponder the idea of what Trump might do next—in terms of asking his followers to start following Muslims or those they think are ‘aliens’ or keeping tabs on this or that—there is I suggest another turn in Trump’s campaign once the delegates start rolling to him to allow for more press attention and another means to galvanize his followers to him as we head to convention time. If nothing else we have learned to think outside the box when it comes to how Trump uses the electoral process to his advantage. I suggest that his attitude to those who take exception to his positions at rallies is the start of something that might be broader and deeper as he heads further to November.
