This Shook Me Up And It Should You

A series of tweets have been caught during the first day in Trump’s America. This is what’s going to happen all over the U.S. If YOU didn’t ask for it, maybe your neighbour did. The anger is on the side of Trumpists, while fear is present for the minorities. I can tell you that exactly the same type of reactions were perpetrated by white Arians 80 years ago in Germany. This is so disgusting.

Emboldened and feeling sanctioned by Trump’s language and demagogue ways, white people now think any crime committed against minorities are Ok and exempt from prosecution. The next step are supreme court judges who think that is quite OK and let the perpetrators go, while the victims are chased down the street.
My worries about America have just begun. I implore you to put a stop to it before it is too late.

As I'm stopped at a gas station this morning, a group of guys yell over: "Time to get out of this country, Apu!" Day 1.

I have a scarf on. Passed by someone on the platform today and he says, "Your time's up, girlie."

Not even 24 hours yet. My friend's sister, who is Muslim, had a knife pulled on her by a Trump supporter while on the bus by UIUC campus.

Someone on the streets of LA just yelled at one of my girl's Latina coworkers to "go back where you came from." #TrumpsAmerica

Principal in Pennsylvania admits white students were chanting: Cotton Picker, You're a Nigger, Heil Hitler.

Would that be enough to convince you that America is on the wrong track?

  1. People need to learn to accept what they will not be able to change. Our Country voted for a man who will stand up and fix the crap so many of us have had to deal with for so long. My grandparents came to America the legal way, they became citizens the legal way. What is wrong with following the law of America??? Why must people be law breakers? So many people are fed up with people using the racist cards to bully their way in America that they elected a President who is not going to be bullied. America is not a FREE COUNTRY to come to, and be paid and supported to live there. It is a FREE COUNTRY to come to, to be free to get a job of your choice, to live in a state of your choice, to attend schools of choice, to bank at a bank of choice, to watch tv channels of choice, to have phones of choice.... and SOMEWHERE along the way, so many did not learn what the word FREE really means, and they have bullied their way in to America and pushed their ways onto a once, great County. NOW, its time we take back our once great Country, and make it great again. We hired Donald J Trump to do that. We EXPECT him to allow for the things that are meant to be FREE in this Country. We do not expect him nor will be tolerate him GIVING AWAY our Country to people who have NO RESPECT for our land and its laws. When American's travel to other Countries, Americans must obey and abide by the laws of the countries they go visit. Why is presumed when a person comes to America, that America should bow down to them, and change its laws and policies to please and accommodate them???? Why can't those people stay in their own country and bully their own government to change their country's laws and policy???? Think about that.

      Sure that's why we're going to let that pipeline go right through Indian land and the hell with them!Us fine white blue eyed, blonde haired, AmeriKKKans.Follow the Yellow Brick Road and the Grand Wizard behind the curtain !

    2. Sorry, the pipeline does not go through Indian lands. The protesters were from outside ND. Have you heard of George Soros who is funding protests throughout our country? How offensive to be labeled as AmeriKKKans. Our voices were heard just as voices were heard in other elections. Our country continues to reject a dynesty. Our country is large and complex. Social experiments were tried and tested in some of our states and they failed--CA being one of them. You will survive as long as you are part of the solution and not the problem.

    3. There were SOME protesters from out of state. The majority were native Americans. The KKK connection should not amaze anyone as the KKK ENDORSED TRUMP. The NEONAZI party did too. Guess, you are not proud of THAT. And with TRUMP you might get what you reject: A dynasty. The social experiments you refere to was just that EXPERIMENTS, when it would have been easy to look around and copy a working system from another country f.e.x Norway. Same goes for health insurance.. Yes, universal health works in many countries around the But with continuing republican obstruction it's not gonna happen. No American has ever told me why it would not work in America. Is your country too special or is there something wrong with the minds of the people? Bernie Sanders was on the right track, but was overlooked by the establishment.

    4. Yah "Mein Fuhrer" the dynasty is being assembled,Newt Gingrich,Rudy Gulliani,Sarah Palin,Ben Carson,and rounding out the team all the Trump children.I'd rather not survive!

    5. Norway is a small country--5.21 million population vs 321 million population for the US so it's easier to develop a Universal Health care system in smaller countries who are, by the way, protected. We have to maintain our own Defense system. I differ about the protesters--the majority were from out-of-state. ND is my home state.

    6. Australia is a big country and so is Canada...they have Universal Health. Britain has had it for the longest time. No excuse.

  2. Most crimes in the US are still committed by American Citizens. If I were an illegal in any country I would want to stay low and under the radar. And that is precisely what illegals do in America. Committing a crime is not on their wish list. I do not endorse illegals being in the US, but your assumption that they stand for the crimes committed is plainly wrong. And btw. what the hell has this to do with people being harassed on the street, just because they look to be from another country. Have you ever thought about that milions upon millions of your fellow coloured or Asian citizens have been born in the US? Or do you actually still think Obama was born in Kenya?

    1. You know what MIddle Class... for years, Trump the con artist, perpetuated the lie about Obama's birth, questioning his legitimacy to be president. As it turns out Obama was moral, ethical and qualified. So, according to you no one should question Trump's qualifications and legitimacy to be president?! Coming in Trump has proven to be immoral, unethical and a con man. Reason enough to question his qualifications.

      Delete
    2. Nope. Obama's birth legitimacy was perpetuated by the Clinton team when Hillary ran the first time and as admitted by members of her campaign team.

    3. You better look up the word perpetuated.

  3. Maybe Middle Class should move down a notch to Lower Class and walk a mile in a poor black mans shoes or try providing for his Mexican family on wages earned picking his fruit or cleaning his urinals!

    1. You know, some people even think that empathy is socialism. As a society we should show and practice social responsibility. There is no country where all people are rich. But most civilized countries have given a mandate to their government to provide a social security-net so people who qualify, can LIVE in some decent way. And as I have pointed out earlier, it also makes a lot of economic sense to reduce poverty so more people can participate in the market economy. But we can talk ourselves blue, the several decade-long indoctrination has lodged in the brains of so many folks. Our only hope is the younger generation.
