EVIL: Trump Lies & People Die
22 Sep 2020 – It’s been a horrific week. The US surpassed 200,000 deaths from the Corona virus, the highest national total in the world by far. The country mourns the passing of Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, while Trump and the Republican Senate rush to replace her with a conservative before the election. Trump made a McCarthyite call for “Patriotic Education” and attacked the late renowned historian Howard Zinn, author of A People’s History of the United States. If there is any book that all Americans need to read it is this book. Zinn said that “being honest about history of our country is the best way to combat propaganda.”
Trump is all about Propaganda! He’s been a liar and Conman his entire life!
It appears that Trump wants to use the cover of “Patriotic Education” to eliminate the racist history of the U.S. – t he truth about slavery, imperialism and genocide. (And the illegal US overthrow of Hawaii too.) It appears that Trump doesn’t want us, or our children, to know the truth. Trump’s vision for America is clearly one of white supremacy, ultra nationalism and authoritarianism.
Trump continues to make baseless claims that mail-in ballots are prone to fraud and tampering. He suggests he could sign a presidential executive order prohibiting Joe Biden from being president. On Sept. 21 Trump’s Justice Dept. declared Democratic cities such as New York City, Portland, and Seattle “anarchist jurisdictions.” Classic divide and conquer. What will follow is anyone’s guess. Will Trump refuse to leave office? Is overt fascism on the horizon? We have been warned….
