Peace. What a novel concept.
But it’s a concept that requires action, not idleness. Granted, sometimes that action resides in inaction, but it’s action nonetheless; the action of remaining silent.
And this is just what I’m gonna do! For the sake of peace during this holiday season, I won’t tell you how moronic I find it that Donald Trump is leading in the Republican Primaries by as much as 30 points over his opponents. I won’t tell you either that even though he seems like he’s successful, he’s actually a loser. As a matter of fact, HIS show should have been called “the Biggest Loser!”
Trump represents everything that is wrong with America and , if elected, will turn back the clock on just about 100 years of progress. Hard. Blood Shed. Painfully Earned. Progress.
I won’t tell you either how deporting refugees, making sure those who remain are visibly identifiable (insert Jewish star here) and enforcing a ban on Muslim immigrants will affect not only the United States, but all of North America and the world as a whole. Not to mention set a safe environment for white supremacists to proliferate. Hail Trump!
And I certainly don’t have to tell you that not one thing coming out of this man’s mouth makes sense. At the last debate, he said, when speaking of refugees, and I quote –because you just can’t make this stuff up!– “As far as other people into migration where they’re going, tens of thousands of people having cell phones with ISIS flags on them. I don’t think so, Wolf. They’re not coming to this country…” What the heck is he even talking about? Phones with flags? This is ten times worst than Bush and his “Nucular Profileration” gibberish! At least, with Bush, we got the gist of it! Trump’s discourse is nothing short of cryptic. And the only one who has the decryption key is, well, you guessed it, Trump himself.
But still, the GOP hails Trump! Even with idiotic comments claiming that he will build a “Great Wall”– although illegal immigration is at an all time low–or that he will shut down parts of the internet so ISIS can’t use it, he is acclaimed. Trump can do no wrong.
His followers are quite charming too! When (Black?) protesters are being escorted out of rallies where Trump speaks, people in the crowd yell, “Shoot him!” “Kick his ass,” and “Light the motherf—-r on fire!” Others simply adopt the “Sieg heil!”, an old Nazi salute. I’m telling you. You can’t make this stuff up.
But I digress. Back to keeping the peace.
