The Lastest of the Bully’s Threats

Trump has shown a real ability to be the head of a class of third or fourth grade bullies. He is childish in his values, yet quite accomplished in using intimidation to get his way. His followers have long since learned that he encourages violence — and will even pay their legal costs for them if they are taken to court for their violence, surely one of the most immoral positions we’ve ever seen in a presidential campaign.

Now he is gearing up his followers for the next round. He says that if he is somehow denied the nomination, “I think you’d have riots. I think you’d have riots. I’m representing many, many millions of people.” From the lips of a bully to the ears of blind followers, those are words of encouragement. Trump is a vicious, ruthless man with not a moral fiber in his body or soul. He is willing to tear America apart to get his own way.

That is why he is a Republican. He has watched these last several years as the Republican Party has consistently put their own political interests above the good of the American people and knows, therefore, the the good of America is not high on the Republican list of priorities.

It is true that Republican leaders are opposed to Trump but that is not because they disagree with him. It is only because they know they cannot control him. Tyrants, such as Trump obviously wishes to be, are absolutely self-centered and look out for the good of no one. They cannot be respectful of the views and concerns of others because they are totally consumed with themselves.

It is difficult to imagine anyone more anti-American than Donald Trump. The “greatness” he promises for America is mere subservience to his own will. If you’ve not yet studied Adolf Hitler and Germany in the 30s, do so quickly. You’ll recognize easily how very much like Hitler is Trump. And it will scare you.

The Republicans are on the verge of nominating a man who is truly evil, one who is bringing out the worst in America.
