“Can I ask you something?” he snapped. “What do you think of Donald Trump?”
I could say many negative things, but others have that covered. I could say many positive things, but others have that covered. What I question is the question. The presumption that I OWE it anybody to address ONE man instead of what I have been addressing, namely entire systems of deep corruption. Hating One Very Bad Man The Only State Sanctioned Bad Man is central to the narrative in Orwell’s 1984. His name was Emanuel Goldstein. Remember? The enslaved people of Oceania were ushered into halls to scream, roar, and throw tomatoes at the screen featuring his image, during “Two Minutes Hate.”
That is what many of us have been reduced to. It’s a national sport. Hating Trump so much that many of our media pollinate openly statements about killing him, assassinating him.
Absolutely extraordinary in our lifetimes, that this would happen.
You must go inside and ask yourself: Is this what I want to be?
One day we will re-examine everything he SAID, next to everything Hillary and Obama DID. And then we will have a new discussion.
For now, here is my official statement on Donald Trump:
I do not accept Donald Trump as my anti-Christ.
