President Trump has been telling us this for years. Is Trump right?There are Americans who are a disgrace. He is one of them,
but, sadly. others are as well.Those who disparage reporters, judges, elected officials, women, gays, minorities, educators, the military, the media, the courts, foreigners, Democrats and Republicans.Those who cage kids. Those who lie and perpetuate the lies of others that diminish America’s values and institutions.Those who suppress the right to vote rather than expand it and do so
for all of the wrong reasons.Those who advance ideologies of hate and racial bias. United States Paul Gosar from Arizona, a Congressman who took an oath to uphold the Constitution, was keynote speaker at the America First Political Action Conference, a white supremacy organization, at which “the conference organizer, …called the Jan. 6 riots “awesome” and demanded elected leaders like Gosar enact protections for the country’s “white demographic core.”Those who become violent, who assault and even kill Asian Americans, blaming them for our pandemic or who murder gays because they aren’t “normal”, or who storm the Capitol to “stop the steal” harming Capitol police, killing one, injuring dozens and threatening to harm our elected representatives.Those who are defined by our FBI as domestic terrorists.Those who no longer root for the underdog, but instead root to “lock her up.” “Knock the crap out of him.” “Hang Mike Pence.”Those Americans ARE a disgrace. Most Americans say this is not who we are but it IS who we are unless we condemn and rebuke and ostracize such actions, words, and behavior. We said “NO” to Donald Trump. We must say “NO MORE” to those who disgrace America.
