In Donald Trump’s campaign for the most esteemed job in America, he threw civility, morality, honor, and professionalism out the door. He took democracy to the gutters by openly evangelizing racism, bigotry, misogyny, hatred and stoking the fear of foreigners and national decline. He went beyond all boundaries of decency expected of a presidential candidate in America by saying President Obama is “the most ignorant president in history,” while continually praising Vladimir Putin for his leadership in Russia.
And Trump’s minions came. They listened. They got fired up. They voted. They won. They are unrestrained.
Extreme racism and hate are already running rampant in America. The “white extremist” subset of Trump’s minions interpreted his election as sanction for unfettered racism and hate, including support for attacking and abusing all non-white people. Just watch the news and social media as stories of non-white people, including children, being bullied and threatened, women being confronted, and buildings being defaced with hate-speech are made public. And it only took one day.
To all those crossover voters that normally vote Democrat and those evangelical voters that swapped their morals and ethics to support this vile con-man, congratulations, you chose chaos over harmony and order.
