Anyone still questioning whether Donald Trump is a full-blown racist need only read his three tweets from Sunday. He has irrevocably, and without shame, branded himself in front of America’s citizenry, as a racist.
From this point forward no matter what he accomplishes he will be inextricably tied to a wholly xenophobic, hateful and inhumane conduct reserved for some of the worst individuals our country has seen.
Referring to four female congresswomen of color who Trump wants out of America, he wrote, “You can’t leave fast enough.” “The Congresswomen,” he wrote, “who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world…” should leave.
All four congresswomen are U.S. citizens, 3 of whom were born in America, while the other was a refugee and has been a citizen for almost 20 years. Trump expanded on his thoughts, «Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done.»
It’s hard to know from where exactly Trump came, but personally I think he needs to go back to his padded cell. If he believes this insanity is going to win him Independents and swing voters, then he’s an even dumber genius than I thought. It’s one thing to promote a policy; it’s another to allow the completely abandoned space inside of one’s head to take over.
Racism is the ultimate cowardice because it attempts to mask the fear of others with the comfort of ignorance. At 73 years of age, Trump has successfully solidified the isolation in his mind because he’s never been brave enough to actually confront it. It is a grotesque sickness. The American people are the cure.
