Throughout the 1930’s Adolf Hitler grew a base of Nazi followers, which emboldened his quest for the ultimate “white race”. He killed millions of Jews, Gypsies and Gays in order to purify the white race. This led to World War II, as countries around the world stood up to the spread of Nazism. Soldiers from all over the world fought the scourge of Nazism…and Mr.President, this included thousands of American soldiers who died for their country, while hoping to stop the spread of Nazism.
On Saturday, August 11th, nearly 80 years since America and countries around the world stopped the spread of Nazism, Neo-Nazis took over the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia, chanting Nazi slogans and wearing Nazi garb.
Rioting broke out on the streets, as citizens attempted to stand up to these ugly individuals. Saturday afternoon a Nazi sympathizer took a car and drove it into a group of people, killing one and injuring 19. While all this was happening, former leader of the KKK, David Duke, was cheering on the actions of these Nazi sympathizers and saying he was following the lead of Donald Trump.
Late Saturday afternoon President Trump spoke, saying very little about what was happening, and what was even more shameful was the fact that he did not call out the Neo-Nazis and White Supremacists. He had the gall, the nerve to say the blame for the rioting falls “on all sides”.
This has unleashed a firestorm from not only Democrats, but leading Republicans have spoken up about the evil of Nazism and White Supremacism. President Trump has had no problem criticizing media, politicians, businesses and pretty much anyone who opposes his point of view. Yet, Trump can’t bring himself to criticize Putin, Nazis, White Supremacists; a man whose daughter has converted to Orthodox Judaism and has Jewish grandchildren, marches to the dictates of Putin and Steve Bannon. Divide and conquer, pit whites against Blacks and Jews…bring about civil unrest…declare Marshall Law and you have a Dictator in Donald Trump.
As previously stated, in just eight months, Donald Trump has the world on the brink of Nuclear War, has Nazis freely walking the streets of AmeriKKKa and has American citizens living in fear of the future of their country.
Republicans, Democrats and citizens of the USA must stand up and speak out against the direction Trump is taking their country.
