It’s done. As absurd as it sounds, Trump is the president-elect. Right wing radicals joined forces with otherwise descent people, who closed their eyes, held their nose and put a tick beside the name of a man backed by the Ku Klux Klan, an organization responsible for the deaths and lynchings of tens of thousands of black american men, women and children.
Trump isn’t the first leader head of state in North America, I believe Canada’s Prime Minister, Stephen Harper took the title on that one. But he at least had the descent to keep it quiet and to make vague statements backing away from his Northern Foundation past. Trump’s hate connections are loud, proud and unapologetic. Is this better? Is it better to know exactly who your enemy is? Probably.
But it doesn’t make it any less scary.
From, bro- nazi groups holding a parade to honour Trump, to the shouting of Heil Trump, Heil Victory, to Trump gathering all the media to chastise them for their coverage of him. Or his insistence that anyone who utters a whiff of descent in his direction apologize for it. Do you know what that sounds like? Do you get where I am going?
The threat to create a Muslim registry is real. The deportation of millions of people is real. The ‘solution’ to ensure ‘law and order’ in black communities is real. Don’t look away, don’t bury your head in the sand and don’t think this doesn’t affect you. This will affect the entire world in one way or another. This is it just an American issue, this is a world crisis. What is the world going to do?
