Trump's separation of families shows he's the real divider


Sunday, July 8, 2018

It’s the Democrats who are dividing America with hate? Really?

We sat there while white supremacists and Christian conservatives elected a vile human being whose stock in trade was insulting and denigrating his opponents. We sat there while his appointees dismantled the EPA. We sat there when his appointees dismantled the Affordable Care Act. We sat there when his appointees dismantled any science information on climate control. We sat there when his appointees took down information on women’s health care. We sat there when his attorney general started to turn this country into a police state.

We also sat there when his appointees opened up public lands to exploitation. We sit there while he tries to destroy freedom of the press and insults our intelligence agencies.

But when you deliberately hurt children, that’s it! No more Mr. Nice Guy. How dare you separate families. This country is guilty of cruel and inhumane treatment. We are better than that.

If you are upset that government appointees are being confronted, put on your big-boy pants and deal with it. People earn respect and civility. We will not allow you to make this country a fascist state. Evil triumphs when good men do nothing.

The president and attorney general have awakened a sleeping giant. The good people of this nation are not sitting now. They are standing up for what is right and just.
