Letter: Donald Trump’s view of America is deplorable


Donald Trump’s disgusting (and revealing) self-acknowledged sexual remarks about women are well known.

But, as Jim Barber has suggested, let us ‘set that aside’. There is a much more insidious force to consider, which I call the Brietbart effect. Breitbart represents, as I have noted before, the worst elements of America on the internet; skinheads, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, white nationalists, and other ‘out of the woodwork’ groups.

Donald Trump fans the flames of their hate at his rallies by calling the media ‘scum’, the worst people on earth. His rallies feature vile language, tee-shirts and signs vilifying people with whom they disagree with words not fit for anyone’s ears or eyes.

A sign labeled ‘Media’ with a swastika scrawled on it was found at a media table at a recent rally. With Trump whining about a rigged election, a crooked media, mainstream GOPer’s after him, all kinds of conspiracies designed to bring him down, his supporters are threatening a revolution when he is defeated.

The Boston Globe has reported that some Trump supporters talk rebellion, assassination, and armed revolt at his rallies. Others vow to racially profile minority voters and intimidate them at polling places. Trump will be directly responsible for any violence as a result of his certain defeat in a few weeks.

It is not enough for Hillary Clinton to win, which she most certainly will. She must crush him to send a message that the great majority of US voters believe Trump is unfit to lead this Nation. Donald Trump’s view of America is not just wrong - it is deplorable.

There is one accomplishment we can credit Hillary with. She exposed the extent and depth of corruption in this Democratic Administration that was beyond anyone''s imagination. It shows a government in free fall that may not be redeemable. The US is not to big to fail.

Burks comments are all politically correct. That is more important! I have followed the events in Benghazi where 4 Americans were murdered, including a well respected Diplomat. In as much as Hillary had no excuse for not providing security for them it is politically correct to ignore the facts. What difference does it make anyway! I have also followed the atrocities in San Bernadino, Fort Hood Texas and Orlando but it is politically correct to forget them even thought 50 souls were gunned down by an Islamic terrorists screaming Allah Akbar during the shooting. Who cares anymore; it was a months ago. Life is cheap in the United States! Forget about it! France, Germany and Brussels also suffered horrific events. Why just the other day 84 men, women and 10 children were slaughtered in Seine. Better get used to it if Hillary is elected. This is the world Hillary will bring to this country is she allows thousands of economic migrants to flood the country guaranteeing they will vote Democratic forever. You can throw your vote out along with your freedom. Let's not kid ourselves. Hillary's election campaign is funded by foreign money that would take great pleasure substituting Sharia Law for our Christian Republic.
