What a nation of cowards we are becoming! With xenophobia rising rapidly — thinks in large part to Trump’s using it as a campaign ploy — we are becoming so fearful that we are intimidated simply by hearing Arabic. Land of the free and home of the brave. . .Ha!
An Iraqi student from Cal Berkeley, speaking on the phone with a relative, was escorted off a Southwest Airlines plane before departure. His offense? He was speaking Arabic.
I am ashamed of what is happening in America and deeply angered by those “conservatives” who are not conserving but destroying traditional American values. Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be free. . .but make sure they learn English first.
There has always been a dark side to human nature and to human institutions and even whole nations. But the so-called “conservatives” are devoted to cultivating that dark side for their own gain. Trump and Cruz and others like them are becoming increasingly despicable, morally corrupt, spiritually monstrous.
