America – really? You elected a man who was the spokesperson and promoter of conspiracy theories as your president? Really? Come on – that can’t be real. Are you really that racist, America?
The last president spent eight years in office – an African American. He was elected – and re-elected. He was respected around the world. He wasn’t perfect, but he did a pretty good job. He had no scandals during his time in office. He had no affairs. He spent his time with his family. He raised two daughters and now into their teen years – some say, the most difficult time for parents. And still, after seeing all of that you elected who? A man who was the spokesperson in Chief for the Birther Movement? Who was on television and in countless videos speaking far and wide about Barack Obama not being an American. Who called your duly elected president a liar. A man who claimed that your American president was living a lie to his fellow Americans by claiming to be an American when he was actually born in Africa.
America, you laughed at this Donald Trump, the Conspiracy theorist in Chief – and then you elected him your next president? You made him the butt of many jokes and the late night comics had a field day.
America, is your need to identify as White that strong. You are, after all, the ones who set up “White” as a race. So I guess we should not be that surprised when you feel the need to protect this “White American” race. You didn’t realize when you set up this White race identity that it would not only be about slavery and identifying the other as “Colored”, “Black” and now “African American”, but would become your ingrained identity and keep you forever needing to be seen as “better than”. You went so far as setting up White Privilege to go along with that White American identity. Jealous of the English Colonialism with which they tried to rule the world?
Problem with that is colors always seemed to me to be more interesting, have more depth, be about something. “White” seemed so lacking in ….. something. And now I see what “White” lacks – Character? Ethics? Truth? And has a little “Evil” ingrained. We thought, at some point, that you would just become “American”.
Who is this man? Who is this conspiracy theorist who so portrayed your president for eight years – and longer – as an African who was fooling the American public by claiming to be an American when in fact he was not. And you – citizens of the United States – elected this man, this conspiracy theorist, your president. Donald Trump – president elect of the United States. Chief Conspiracy Theorist.
Your founding fathers must be proud because they slipped into the Constitution this Electoral College, which they hoped would insure that White Males (hopefully) Northern Europeans would always be president of these United States of America. You kept that Electoral College in your Constitution for hundreds of years as a bulwark against any serious kind of desegregation. Wow! What foresight you all had. But what a price you have paid. Isn’t that what stopped Al Gore? But then maybe you were right to do that because wasn’t that – no, couldn’t have been, must have been someone else – a look alike. His character wouldn’t let him. But then he claimed to have invented the internet, which dropped his character a rung or two, so maybe that was him running into that Tower.
And so the founders have reached into the 21st century with that desire to maintain slavery and have caused you Americans to elect a man who is:
- A conspiracy theorist. His biggest conspiracy and most successful one was spreading the lie that Barack Obama was born in Africa and he and his family were lying about who he really is. Will he have the support of and appoint other Conspiracy Theorists to his cabinet and other places in his government so his way of being “in charge” will continue on?
- A Casino Operator – a man who built and operated several casino’s. Even one in Las Vegas. Now, I was always told that Casino Operators could only exist if they were a part of the mafia or could only exist with the blessing and support of the mafia. Las Vegas – New Jersey – big mafia strongholds in the United States (so I have been told). So what does that make your new president and who will really be in control of your government. And you looked down on Cuba when it was overrun with mafioso from the United States. Now that Cuba has cleaned itself up, will the United States of America be the place where that happens?
- The owner of a Construction Company – which built hotels, apartment houses, etc. AND would not allow Blacks to rent or live in any of his buildings. I have seen the newspaper clippings and the cases against Mr. Donald Trump. Not only against him, but he comes by this legitimately because he inherited this racism from his father, who also built buildings in which he did not allow Blacks to live. Isn’t that a violation of your laws America? And yet you elected this man, who with his family, violated your laws blatantly and is still violating your laws and you now call him your president-elect?
- A man, who reportedly only values a woman for her body – isn’t that sexism? Doesn’t that also violate your laws, America. And still you elected him your president?
- A man, who it rumored, has violated all of the 10 Commandments. Maybe that is a slight exaggeration, but he has violated enough of them that those loud outspoken Evangelicals praising who we thought was God were really only singing their praises to god. So we really can’t dump on them since they are worshipping their idols and we do believe in freedom of religion. We were only fooled a little while by the names they called him. We were fighting them because we knew our God wasn’t HIM. We knew our Jesus was born male, not to glorify maleness, but to glorify God. It was offending God for us to be taking on such a fight to try to keep their god primary in front of everyone. This election has cleared our eyes. Idol worship is not for us and never has been. We wouldn’t be surprised if one day soon they don’t start calling their god, Donald Trump. They have already started to talk about their god sending Donald Trump to them. And how this is all their gods plan. But they don’t seem to understand retribution – payment for past sins – God’s wrath – evil. They seem to think that is a good thing sent by their god for their betterment. Well, actually, it probably is being sent by their god in the hopes it will produce their betterment, but the way their leaders are running into the Tower offering their congratulations, their services, their excitement about the “Don’s” coming success it is seriously doubtful that God’s message is getting through.
HOW THE MIGHTY HAVE FALLEN!
Abraham Lincoln didn’t bring you down! – he raised you up.
Martin Luther King, Jr. didn’t bring you down! – he raised you even higher.
but Donald Trump is bringing you wayyyyyyyy down.
And look at how your BIG MEN are falling all over themselves running in to kiss the ring. Their character – their ethics – their very souls are on display for all to see.
Wasn’t that Mitt Romney we saw running into Trump Tower and having dinner with the Almighty One?
And we though Mitt Romney was one of the good guys. When he saw what was happening with the election in his beloved country, he stood up and was counted as someone who said he was not going along with this travesty. He didn’t say “evil” but he might as well have because what he did say came down to the same thing. But what was he really doing? Did he read the tea leaves and saw that Hillary Clinton was going to win so he was not downing Donald Trump and taking an ethical stand, but positioning himself to be in line for some kind of substantial position in Hillary’s government?
Oh, Oh, Nooooooooo! Not him too! Oh my goodness – there goes Al Gore – into the Tower! Well, we always had our suspicions about him. He tried, but he just couldn’t pull off being such a good guy. And now, we see him totally uncovered.
Oh, help me to my seat and cover my eyes and ear, I don’t know how much more of this I can stand.
Oh – and when your new president goes traveling around the world with his ‘wife” – which one? The one who allowed all those pictures to be taken of herself in the various kinds of poses that a prostitute takes to advertise her wares. Now, be careful here, I am not calling her a prostitute, but I said clearly, the kind of pictures a prostitute takes – naked on a bear rug with high heels up in the air and handcuffed to the bed and etc. Some are calling her a soft porn model. We will just look at the pictures circling the world and shake our heads. Trump better get the Muslims and soon because when those pictures of his wife start circulating in religious Muslim circles – oh my!
And how does your president-elect handle his anti-semitism. Well, his daughter has put him in a trap because she went off and married an Orthodox Jew. Well, not only did she do that, but she became one herself. Now you know in Judaism, the children take on the identity of the mother, so if she hadn’t converted, her children would not be in danger of being Jews. But she went off and did the thing so now her husband and her children are Jews. So how did your President-elect handle that? Is that his anger at this marriage, all of you Americans, that turned him so viciously against Muslims? So badly so that he wants to eliminate all of them! Is this going to be another purge by the Norther Europeans. The last time they tried to get rid of the Jews. This time there is a Jew sitting in the halls of power so they are going to try to get rid of all the Muslims. Well, just as well. Eventually, somehow, they will rid the world of all those they various and sundry people they consider “minorities”.
Oh, America, my heart aches for you. Don’t you know you have to pay for your sins? Haven’t you seen enough of God’s retribution to know that your day is coming? Maybe this is it! Maybe this is the beginning of your having to pay for the slavery you brought on Africans. Or maybe this is the beginning of your retribution for what you have done to those who lived in the land before the Northern Europeans arrived. What are they called today? Indians? No, that is politically incorrect – Native Americans. What a name. Call them Native Americans and then invade and destroy the little bits and pieces of land they have left and make sure it will soon be covered with the results of the many oil spills that will happen,as those Northern Europeans make loads of money in the companies that are going to dig up their privately owned land drilling for what? Covering up what? Taking back what? Is this a new form of genocide – against those you have given the honorific title of Native American and made them think that this title was their idea?
Oh, America, I pray for you every day. There are so many good people in your country. What is going to happen to them. They seem to be allowing these few others to take over and destroy every dream they have ever had. Or maybe that is the problem – have they been so treated they don’t have anymore dreams?
My goodness, some of those good people are Northern Europeans. Then who are these who have so wrecked the land and continue to wreck the land? Who are those who let them? I understand Donald Trump owns stock in the company about to destroy the land of the native Americans to cause oil to pollute the water so they will have nothing to drink. And what about the rest of us – we won’t either.
You have allowed whoever these people are to destroy your country. To invade and change the dreams of your people. You started out in such a beautiful way. We really hoped you would succeed. But you have now been derailed and who knows if your country will ever be the same again.
Germany certainly didn’t expect to descend into a Nazi state. And today, it seems as though it is only the Germans who really recognize the danger you are in America. Have they learned from their mistakes?
So what now? As your country began to become diverse – that beautiful diverse place where all were supposed to be welcome – what is the quote “bring me your tired,….” That poem written by Emma Lazarus and cut into the stone with that gift from France to be a beacon to Exiles from all over the world
“Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
Oh, No! Is the writer of this poem – Emma – a woman? Is that why they turned against immigrants? Will that open the door to taking her poem off the Statue of Liberty? And a better, more American under Donald Trump type poem in its place?
Well, that is certainly no longer America. Will it ever be again? With Donald Trump and his friends – not likely. The United States of America used to travel the world telling others how they should change to be more like America. Walk hand in hand into the sunset with the Casino Operator and his Soft Porn Model wife – naahh, that doesn’t sound quite right.
And here you are America – flirting with becoming another Russia; another fascistic state with its super wealthy governing people and underlings in line for bread – you can ignore this if you dare, but stay on this road and that day is coming and sooner than you think.
I used to think America was the greatest nation on earth. Today, I realize you are the most foolish.
