Donald Trump is Jesus

Twist yourselves into knots over this.

I for one agree with most of what Jesus is supposed to have said about looking after the poor, hospitality for the stranger.

It's always a dilemma, are we doing enough to look out for the poor, for our veterans, for our grandparents? The answer is no for many of us.  So when catastrophe happens in places like Syria and people are in far more desperate state than most of us, we shouldn't help because we're not doing enough for our own people.

No one can say with a straight face,1 we should not reach out to help refugees. Are bombs dropping on your children?

The answer is to start looking after our neighbour. Sometimes it's uncomfortable, they're different than us. These are real people. We walk by the homeless veteran, we vote for tax cuts, we demand the drug abuser stop drugs before we offer help. We demand conversion.

Trump offers us a vision that will change none of this. Tax cuts for the 1%. We've been doing that since the 80's. The results have meant the government has no money. Education and health care are cut because we have no money.

We no longer care as a society for the fortunes of others. Workers incomes are slashed to keep companies more profitable. Employers feel no obligation to look out for the people that make them rich. Trump is that employer.

Trump is fanning the flames of hate. Fear the Muslims, the Mexicans. It's the last desperate hope of fools and con-men.

He has shown us the real him. His misogyny, his rascim, he denies things he's said and done even when it's recorded.

Trump is about only him. He is Jesus. If you don't like it, he'll sue.


Why Donald Trump scares me

Hate does a lot of harm. It kills. This could have been me, it could have been you.

A new election ad is out and it takes aim at the hate being generated by Donald Trump and his campaign. It's below.'

Judy Shepard, whose son Matthew was murdered in the horrific 1998 Laramie, Wyoming hate crime which brought anti-LGBT violence to the attention of the nation, speaks out against Donald Trump and the hateful rhetoric he uses to rally his supporters in a new video for Priorities USA.

Says Shepard,
“When I see the hate that Donald Trump brings to his campaign for president, it terrifies me. Words have an influence. Violence causes pain. Hate can rip us apart. I know what can happen as the result of hate, and Donald Trump should never be our president.”

We have to be afraid again...

You have to be afraid again. That's how it's become. Politicians and Conservative preachers are spreading the hate.

In elections, especially in this US election cycle the politics of division are being used to drive voters to the polls.

How does that work? In the US if you're a Republican you have a subset of supporters that make up a minority of the population. You want them to vote because if they do, your chances of winning go up.

In North Carolina, the plan to bring out these folks was the so called bathroom bill.  HB2 was passed which prevented transgender folks from using the bathroom that matched their identity. 

The bill was not required except to give conservative Christians a good reason to vote and ensure a Republican victory. 

When opposition  to the bill started to rise across the state and country, the Republicans made-up the threat of men pretending to be women going into the womens' washrooms to assault little girls.

It is ludicrous yet repeating it often enough their supporters start to vilify the LGBTQ communities. 

Things like this happen...


All of this happens because a political party will stop at nothing to win.  They don't care if it means they are providing open season on LGBTQ citizens. 

Federally the Trump campaign is doing the same. Blaming all the problems in the USA on Mexicans, using blatant misogyny, and attacking Muslims. 

Supporters of Trump show up at rallies wearing t-shirts saying 'stop the cunt', a pastor stating it's better to have a President who grabs pussy instead a President that has a pussy.

Hate, hate hate.

It's seems to have backfired federally in that many Christiansare speaking out, students at Liberty University have called out the school's president for supporting Trump. 

Conservative women are now speaking out against voting for Trump. 

Wedge issues can be very nasty. The Republicans have been using them with great success for years now. 

It may be they have gone too far this time. Let's hope so.
