I Know Some Of You Love Him, But, Remember, This Will Be A [t]Rump Presidency

Rose Hamid is a Muslim woman; in America, in 2015, in South Carolina, at a rally for Donald [t]Rump, that’s a bad thing to be.

Hamid was kicked out of a Donald Trump rally last Friday night — removed by security — for no apparent reason. She says she came to the rally to show “Trump supporters … what a Muslim looks like.” She stood silently, wearing a t-shirt that read:
“I Come In Peace.”
About halfway through the rally some people in the crowd “turned pretty ugly” toward the woman, shouting “epithets” and they were allowed to stay why she was escorted out by security. And, while she was being removed for no reason, Donald [t]Rump, knowing where he was and to whom he was speaking said this:
“There is hatred against us that is unbelievable. It’s their hatred, it’s not our hatred.
She came in peace; she stood in silence; that’s hatred to [t]Rump and any of you, all of you, who believe that this is America.

It is not. And if you think this is right, to simply stand in silence, wearing a shirt for Peace, and to be removed from Donald [t]Rump's presence, please get this one thing through your thick, illiterate, hate-filled, xenophobic heads:

One day you will piss off Donald [t]Rump and he will have you removed.

Bet on it.

Muslims are terrorists; Donald [t]Rump and his Hate Speech are the terrorists.

So, this is where I am with Trump. I both despise him and all he stands for, and am grateful. Why grateful? Because his open and honest racism has ripped the festering band-aide from the bigotry we Americans have been busy denying since the '60s. Maybe now that racism is again in the news cycles, we can finally work through this issue and come to a meaningful peace and acceptance between the races.

I am imagining the uproar on Fox and so on had someone wearing a t-shirt reading "I am a Christian" stood up in silence at a political rally and was rushed out of the room to jeers and boos.

I agree that this campaign is exposing many of America's dirty little secrets to the world at large. What the world sees is not only (t)Rump making outlandish statements; they see thousands of Americans cheering him on. And that is what disturbs them and what will continue to spread hatred among our enemies and confusion among our friends.

Trump is scary enough, but what is scarier are the actions of the Trump audience.

A scene from the movie "Cabaret" which made an impression on me, comes to mind. A boy begins singing a beautiful, serene pastoral. Slowly, the audience begins joining him in song, with peaceful expressions. With each verse, the song become louder and more strident and the words take on a new meaning and the faces and actions of the audience get uglier and uglier.

Is this where we are headed? Are we not supposed to learn from history?

I wish he'd go back under his rock and just worry about his businesses and chasing younger women, and finding a better rug. If he gets in that is gonna be one elitist, pompous first family.....and it scares the shit out of me. He'd be a terrible representative of the US.

WHY can we NOT imprison this domestic terrorist for treason against the american people?

His supporters are mad-dog rabid...and nothing is going to change them now that they have been unleashed. It doesn't matter what outrageous thing he says...he speaks for them in their feeble minds. The more he lies, the more they lap it up. Just look at the woman in the photo above...the woman in the lower right. The epitome of hate in that face.

She's hardly an innocent victim. She knew what she was doing. She showed up at the rally hoping to create an incident and that's exactly what happened.

Nothing left to say but I will definitely be considering leaving the states if 'mob rule' wins the presidency!

It would be worth it to attend a [t]Rump rally with a huge group of people wearing T-shirts reading "SHALOM I come in peace" "God bless -- I come in peace" etc. and see what happens and who gets kicks out. Would he kick out a bunch of Christian ministers? And this is nothing like the lead-up to the Nazi years in Germany?

@Troy
She wore a shirt and attended a rally in silence. Yeah, she's the problem.

Helen Lashbrook said...

I wish I had her courage, very few people can prepare themselves to return calm for vilification

Troy Milton said...

Oh, come on @Bob! You're not that naïve. She didn't go to a Donald Trump rally to just stand there. This was done to get a reaction and get attention. Afterwards she was on CNN and every blog under the sun. That's what it was all about.
