AN OPEN LETTER TO DONALD TRUMP

Standard

Candidate Trump,

I guess your mother never played Connect-the-Dots games with you. Do you not understand that the number of hate crimes in the United States has increased since you began spewing your vile racist rhetoric?

Do you not understand that there is a direct link to increased numbers of innocent people being killed and the do-nothing Republican Congress that has somehow been mesmerized into supporting you?

Do you not get that semiautomatic rifles are not used for self-defense, but for offense? For offense against human beings who have mothers and fathers and children and sisters and brothers and who have never done anything to deserve being shot to death?

Do you not get that the majority of these acts are perpetrated by AMERICAN CITIZENS with LEGALLY PURCHASED RIFLES?

Do you not get that there are murderers out there who cannot board an airplane because they’re on the no-fly list but who can purchase a rifle whenever and wherever they want?

Do you not understand that, despite the fringe element that votes for you, this country does not need you and does not want you?

Are you completely lacking in the human qualities of empathy and compassion? Are you completely lacking in the ability to learn from experience? Are you completely lacking in the knowledge of right and wrong, good and evil?

You must be. How else could you continue to say the things you say? To disgorge your idiotic rationalizations.

You are destroying this country, perhaps irreparably. How will we clean up the mess you make day after day?

To misquote the beautiful Lin-Manuel Miranda, who is a much better person than I am, “SHUT UP IS SHUT UP IS SHUT UP IS SHUT UP!”

    Congratulations on a great Rant. 🙂

    One question: You wrote “You are destroying is country perhaps irreparably. How will we clean up the mess you make day after day?” at the bottom. Did you mean “you are destroying this country …”?

    One observation: On NPR News this morning a woman (I think from Washington Post so we know for sure why she wasn’t at a Trump rally) – said that she went to a gun shop and in six minutes walked out with an assault rifle. She then went to police Dept. to turn the gun in and endured six hours of interrogation and forms to relinquish the gun even though she had all the requisite receipts and permits in hand. Is that IRONIC or just another case of beauracy working against us?

    Tanks for your posts. I really enjoy them.

  2. Oh, thanks for the heads-up, Joel. I’ll edit it. I did the danger spell and grammar check and all it did was underline “Do you not understand” over and over.

    That is very ironic. I think you’re right about a case of bureaucracy working against us. Meanwhle, I’ve heard today that stocks in guns are spiking since Sunday.
