Donald Trump not Welcome in Pittsburgh
Jewish Leaders Prefer Love, Tolerance and Peace Over, Hate
I have no words for this past weekends act of violence.
A group of Jewish leaders told President Trump that he is no longer welcome in Pittsburgh until he denounces white nationalism following the shooting at a synagogue there over the weekend.
To attack a Jewish Community makes both my heart and soul just, sick.
We could all sit here and blame Trump, we could. He is after all the biggest speaker of hate and intolerance that I have ever seen.
But we should also blame the mainstream media and ourselves.
In the meantime, Trump who planned to visit Pittsburgh, has been dis invited by Jewish leaders until he denounces his belief in the pipe dream of white nationalism.
Hate after all begets hate.
The very definition of white nationalism:
“White nationalism is a type of nationalism or pan-nationalism which espouses the belief that white people are a race and seeks to develop and maintain a white national identity.”
Now a week ago Trump attempted to play his belief in white nationalism up as not really knowing the very definition of it.
On that, I call bullshit. You can google it, and I heard Trump does have an iPhone, he could ask Siri to define it.
Anti Semitism is vile and hate filled, but that is also what White Nationalists believe in.
White Nationalists, don’t like Jews any more than blacks, gays, trans, lesbians etc., anyone but whites.
Additionally, I do support the Washington Post’s headline yesterday with regards to the hate crimes being committed as being driven by Trump and his political rhetoric.
However, I do feel rather strongly that the mainstream media also plays a big part in the hate crimes of today’s world.
Forget Russian meddling, I said this over a year ago, our issues, what allowed Russia to meddle is very much alive already here at home.
It is playing out right in front of us if anyone would care to look.
We the people are just as much responsible for the hateful divide here in America as our president is and the media, the media is also to blame in fact, more so than anyone.
If we want change, the we need to be that change.
We must rise above the press and our hateful president.
Both by default are equally hateful.
By default they are both responsible for the hate crimes being committed within the US today.
Not one more than the other.
