This post is dedicated to preserving core American values by defeating Donald Trump in the 2016 Presidential election.
America was founded 240 years ago on the notion that all are created equal, endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights – the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Ours is largely a nation of immigrants and has been since the thirteen colonies were established. We have fought, since the first settlers, and to the present day, for religious freedom. Our immigrants contributing to America’s greatness are as diverse as the people of the world – coming from every inhabited continent and country, every race, national origin, and creed.
Donald Trump has never held public office, fought for this country, or engaged in substantial public service of any kind, and is thus the least-qualified person ever to aspire to the presidency as a major party candidate. His best known public policy positions, which he rode to the likely Republican nomination, scapegoat immigrants and religious minorities.
Trump has said that the children of undocumented immigrants should not be protected by the constitution (though most of his own kids were children of immigrants, Ivana Trump, who was Czech, and Melania Knauss, who was Slovenian).
Trump has said, “Day 1 of my presidency, they [illegal immigrants] are getting out and getting out fast.” He has said that all immigrants in the U.S. illegally (11 million, approximately) should be deported, but has in the past said that only some should be deported, and has no plan for conducting such an operation, which experts says is impossible. He has advocated building a wall along the entire Mexican border, which Pope Francis decreed as un-Christian. Trump responded by calling the Pope a pawn of the Mexican government.
Trump has also famously said that all Muslims should require special identification(like the Jews in Nazi Germany), and that Muslims should not be allowed to come to the United States at all (in violation of the First Amendment guaranteeing freedom of religion), and called Brussels a “hellhole” while it was recovering from terrorist threats, because of its Muslim minority. Trump calls for surveillance of mosques in the U.S.
We have never had a major party candidate like Trump in America, but other countries have, so we know that we must take Trump’s bigoted positions seriously. Read, for example:
An unqualified demagogue like Trump, who openly espouses racist views as a basis for seeking the high and honorable position of U.S. President, mocks America and its bedrock values, and must be taken seriously, and stopped.
It is of no consequence whether you or I are not Mexican or Muslim. A racist attack on one of us is an attack on all Americans. We recall the words of Martin Niemöller, who had the courage to speak out against Hitler as a Protestant pastor. He said:
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
It is time for all patriotic Americans to speak out against Donald Trump.
