I recently read “The Miserable People” by John Pavlovitz. He gave me a good insight into the people who support Trump, but it also concerned me because Pavlovitz exposed the aggression & anger of his followers.
Then I heard Trump speak on Friday night, July 3rd. The 4th has always meant a coming together for all of us to celebrate our freedoms, especially for political discourse and the freedom to express & discuss different opinions. For the first time in my life, I am frightened because of what he called me and many people like me – the enemy to our own country. What’s really concerning is his already angry followers were listening to his rage and fury.
As I listened, I thought of many other people who used the same words about their own countrymen; they were and are called despots and tyrannical. His words brings fear because of his encouragement to his followers. How many people in his cult will take his words literally and continue their wrath? How dangerous are they now?
When I first heard his words, I could not believe I had heard such vitriol spewing out to millions of Americans. I had to see his words to actually believe what he had said. I repeat some of Trump’s words here so they become real to all of you.
“In our schools, our newsrooms, even our corporate boardrooms, there is a new far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance. If you do not speak its language, perform its rituals, recite its mantras and follow its commandments, then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted, persecuted and punished.”…. “Make no mistake, this left-wing cultural revolution is designed to overthrow the American revolution.” …. “Our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values, and indoctrinate our children.”… “We will not be tyrannized. We will not be demeaned. We will not be intimidated by bad evil people. It will not happen.”
How can we allow a President to speak about his own people in this way? A President who only promotes division and hatred? A President who speaks so appalling about US citizens; treats his citizens as targets using words, COVID, and bullets.
How can we stop him? Who will stand up and remove him from office? How can we remove the hatred that’s coming from the top of our government? Everyone says vote. But, even if Biden wins, 6 months are left before the government changes hands. Much damage can be done in 6 months. And, what are his followers going to do when he’s required to leave the White House?
Am I seditious? Am I a danger to our country? Am I trying to overthrow our government? Maybe some people agree with the President and think so. But, to me, I’m saving our country. I’m trying to save our people from a very cruel & tyrannical President.
What can be done?
