Dear Trump Supporters
Dear Trump Supporters. I get it. You want immigration to be monitored. You want a wall. You want immigrants whom you feel are taking your jobs to be deported. I get it. After 9/11, and the events throughout Europe, you want your Commander in Chief to be wary of radical Islamic immigrants. I understand what you don’t want. I understand why Trump inspires you.
What should terrify you is the bully in Trump. The least presidential candidate that we’ve ever had, Trump has clearly advocated raw violence, even as he hypocritically urges his followers to “Go in peace.” He has a history of agitating his crowds: “Knock the crap out of him, will you?”…… “I’d like to punch him in the face, I’ll tell you.” And this from the crowd: "Shoot him!" "Kick his ass," and "Light the motherfucker on fire!" And, according to observers, a large middle aged man shouted, "Sieg heil!"
Yes, perhaps more shocking than anything else, he is encouraging a Nazi salute. He is displaying a Nazi salute. And I beg you not to equivocate on this. The pictures are not of people raising their hands high. The pictures are not of how you swear to tell the truth in a court of law. The pictures are of a Nazi salute, and there is no way in hell that Trump does not know that—and, by implication, condone everything represented by a Nazi salute. And if, in some alternate universe, Trump does not know that he is offering up a Nazi salute, and asking for one in return, then he is just too stupid to be president. And for the record, Trump is also a liar. He knows exactly who David Duke is.
