I’m pissed off… so I am writing early this week. I’m copying this from a post I made on my Facebook page earlier tonight because I feel like this message could not wait until I usually write on Thursday night.
This country’s leader would do best to remember that “divided by our differences, everything is torn apart and tomorrow is contingent on the tolerance of every heart…” – Myles Kennedy
The press conference that I heard a replay of now on CNN broke my heart since it tries to portray a hate group as the victims here, rather than the people who were run over by a twisted individual who supported that hate group. A young woman died and 20 other people were hurt when a neo-nazi drove his car into a crowd of people. Let’s not forget who the REAL victims are. The dead remember who the real victims were on Saturday.
Let’s not forget that these hate groups that he claimed were “protesting silently” were (in reality) waving torches and shouting racist comments 12 hours earlier, and were walking the streets of this country with riot gear and AR-15s. Our streets remember when the safety of American families were put at risk by a hate group, whether permits were obtained or not…
This should NEVER BE ACCEPTABLE!!!
At times like these, the country looks for moral leadership, and quite frankly: we are not getting it. Instead, our leader lashed out at the CEOs who took the moral high ground today, and he called them “grandstanders” for that… but I think we all know who the real grandstander here is…
Our leaders are expected to represent American Values, and should be held to the highest moral standards. That is what sets us apart.
So far this year, I am embarrassed at how those values are not being represented… the highest moral standards have been replaced by angry Twitter tantrums that represent the worst parts of human nature.
This country was built on unity: People coming together from all walks of life… with 3 basic human rights…
Hate groups need to be called out for what they are, and the hatred, disrespect, and moral cowardice they represent.
A white supremacist robbed a 33 year old woman of her LIFE when he violently and intentionally ran her (and others) over with his car.
White supremacists want to restrict the LIBERTY of African Americans and people of Jewish faith.
The lack of a moral compass from our leader in this case is seriously effecting the HAPPINESS of our citizens who are watching this bullshit unfold before our eyes. NEVER in my life, did I think I would ever see the day where the leader of the FREE COUNTRY would make an angry statement like the one he made today, insinuating that a hate group were the victims here. No… NEVER!
I am tired of watching him tear our American Values down, and marginalize this country’s people. He says we need to “make America great again”?
I have said this before: America is at it’s BEST when the people of this country stand together in unity and solidarity. We have a remarkable capacity for taking a tragedy, and pushing past it TOGETHER. We have a remarkable capacity for good, and caring… and helping each other. That is what really makes us great.
Sorry for the long rant, and I hope everyone has a pleasant evening.
