This post isn’t about all the lies, distortions and lies by omission President Trump has subjected us to, this is just about his speech on Aug 22, 2017.
For the record, the important thing is facts. You can find that media has shown all of his statements (They are at time, plenty of times guilty of lies by omission, distortions etc but ion this case they aren’t) and you can easily see Trump is lying by leaving out the most important part of his statements. Taking something out of context from a speech is wrong but looking at part of it that says something important is not wrong.
He is not fit for office. My saying that has nothing to do with party politics or the man himself, it has to do with our country and the world. He is NOT fit for the office of President.
He’s unfit for office and dangerous. Of course Pence is next in line and he’s dangerous but Trump is unhinged and let’s not forget he’s Commander in Chief. He can start wars folks, he can (and is) escalating war.
He can offend and distance allies, trade partners and make our world a whole lot less stable.
He is unfit and Congress must do their job and remove him from office and then they’d better do what they can to keep Pence from destroying us and the rest of us need to get as many Green Party and other non corporate peace, rights and sustainability parties and candidates in office from school board on up.
Also there is this to watch
Here is an article on the escalation in Afghanistan which we have to look at since he is Commander in Chief and his fitness for office is seriously in questioned
And a petition to Congress
And how you can contact your reps
One thing we must look at is the nazis and kkk are not just speaking, the very nature of their groups and the history of those groups shows that flying their flags, chanting their slogans and aligning with the groups clearly shows they are threatening whole groups of people, threats are not speech.
We fought WWII against the nazis. They caused millions and millions of deaths (over 80 million when you count up all lives lost during the war and the after effects such as starvation, lack of water, lack of heat and shelter and medical help)
The world rose up against them. They LOST and have no business marching through our streets.
The kkk are vile and also dangerous and threatening, they target blacks (and others but mainly blacks) and have shown and state clearly that taking lives is what they believe in.
That is not free speech, it’s a threat by them.
Get vocal folks. STAY PEACEFUL! VIOLENCE WILL CAUSE MORE HARM THAN GOOD, EVEN IF YOU MORALLY DO NOT OBJECT TO VIOLENCE IT IS THE WORST THING YOU COULD DO BECAUSE IT EXCUSES MARTIAL LAW AND ONCE THEY PUT THAT IN FORCE WE ARE TOAST.
