Heil Donald

black_c_screen
I have never been so absolutely ASHAMED to be a citizen of the United States as I am now.
We have elected a bullshit artist, a con man, an unashamed and unrepentant liar, a racist and a bigot who brings out the worst in people to the highest office of the land.  A man who joyfully mocks people with disabilities and disparages combat veterans and their families.  A man who is going on trial shortly for both racketeering and fraud AND child rape.  A man who gleefully proclaims his manner of abusing women.  A man who claims to be good at business but has filed for bankruptcy four times and refuses to release his tax returns to show us how much he is really worth.  A man who claims to want to help others but throughout his life has only shown an interest in helping himself.  A man who was endorsed by the Ku Klux Klan.  A man whose rhetoric and tone are alarmingly similar to that which Adolf Hitler used to get elected.
It is a victory of the uneducated over the educated, of intolerance over tolerance, of authoritarianism over the right to due process under the law, of fear over hope. This man has made open hatred and bigotry something that is now acceptable and practiced by many, and his election will likely embolden them even more.
This may ultimately bring about the collapse of the Republican party from within, but how much of our nation – and the world – will it take down with it?
Heil Donald. The Dark Age has begun.

    and with all his “qualities” the US pople voted him as a president.
    that’s quite alarming about the “mind state” of the voters and the situation inside US.
    I can feel with you my friend, but I’m more worried about the people… not about him.

    You’ve said it all. What a sad regression for our supposedly civilized society.

    Half the country views being a woman as worse. The short fast slide into hate filled darkness has already started on social media. On a plus note, I received some photos of Brooke Lynne in the mail and Figures of Grace is in my RSS feed.

    Amen! Preach!

    I’m beyond disgusted and ashamed.
