This is not a fun post. Those are for another day.
Despite all the bad news we have seen in the last few days, I'm desperately trying to focus on things I like but finding it difficult.
I am so tired of waking up every morning wondering what setback will come upon us due to the government currently in office. But, what I saw over the weekend and Tuesday is disgusting and unacceptable. The horrible hate crime behavior of the Ku Klux Klan, Neo -Nazi's and white supremacists on Friday and Saturday in Charlottesville exceeds all other disasters this year except the threat of nuclear war. But then the Trump defensive comments on Tuesday were unbelievable and made the situation even worse.
Are you kidding me? I can't believe I must write these concerns! Either one! Are we back in the 60's? Did we not learn from our past mistakes? Nuclear war? Racism getting worse? Violent hate groups attacking Americans?
First we have the threat of nuclear war hanging over our head because of child like/ bullyish behavior by the White House. This is on top of many of our rights being threatened by this government in just 7 months in office. Now, we have racist hate groups rallying against our own citizens with Trump's support.
Our Congress and other leaders need to stand up against this group of people who are running this disasterous show in the White House and do their own job of representing us citizens. This is not how America believes or behaves.
Silence on our part condones the bad behavior.
