The bullshit that has occurred in the past two days goes way beyond a matter of religion.
It goes way beyond the matter of “keeping America safe”, “making America great again”, or “making America safe again”.
What has occurred in the past two days is something that has disheartened myself and millions of others, not just in America but around the world.
Our fellow human beings have been hurt. They have been humiliated, bullied, interrogated, detained for hours, sent back to war-torn places they were escaping from. You name it. Our fellow human beings have seen it all in the past forty-eight-plus hours.
Why has it come to this? Because some ASSHOLE who calls himself “president” didn’t have the decency to think through what may happen to his fellow human beings if he just suddenly signed a document on Friday afternoon and called it a day. He didn’t have the decency because he doesn’t give a shit about his fellow human beings. He’s made it quite clear in the nine days he’s been “in office” that it’s all about himself. And maybe his “administration”, whom he will probably toss under the bus eventually.
I would love ASSHOLE to use what little brains he has and put himself into the place of the human beings he hurt with his “ban”. I would love him to experience the fear of being a woman arriving at JFK to visit her surgeon husband only to be told that she cannot enter the United States. I wonder how he’d feel being the eighty-something-year-old gentleman in a wheelchair who was interrogated for hours. Or if he had been someone waiting for a loved one to arrive, only to learn that they had been told to return to where they came from. I would love for him to consider all of that. But I know he never would because that’s not how sociopathic narcissists think.
As I always say, everything happens for a reason. At this moment the “reason” is to bring fellow human beings together in solidarity against hate and discrimination. There are more of us than there are of them.
Karma and We The People will catch up with ASSHOLE. He may not know the Constitution, The Geneva Convention or the United States Refugee Act but that’s no excuse for violating them. It is, however, great grounds for impeachment.
