A good friend of mine shared a great article titled: An Open Letter to My Friends Who Support Donald Trump.
I decided to add my own 2¢ comment in (what I considered) reasonable support of the author’s sentiments.
It is stunning that some people refuse to heed the mistakes of the very recent past and those that want to take everyone back there.
The Japanese Internment camps were wrong. Segregation was wrong. Slavery was wrong. We fought wars amongst ourselves to rise above racism and hatred. In WWII more than 60 million people died worldwide. Why? Because of twisted people who were whipping up the population into a frenzy and making ridiculous statements, killing innocent people simply because of their race or religion. The United States lost more than 400,000 lives fighting in that war.
Suddenly, without warning, a wild Trump supporter appears.
I try to avoid lengthy replies on other people’s timelines, however this random encounter appeared to be a decent exercise and my friend gave me the ‘green light’ to reply directly to the Trump supporter. Yay! 😀
I know that nothing I type will have any effect on a person with the critical thinking ability of an A.M. talk radio parrot and the end result is one hundred percent what I expected.
