In response o this article: “Trump and Brexit: why it’s again NOT the economy, stupid” http://blogs.lse.ac.uk/politicsandpolicy/trump-and-brexit-why-its-again-not-the-economy-stupid/
So what does today mean… this election has sanctified the KKK, neo nazi’s, and the alternative right that it is okay to be openly a racists, to demean and degrade those who do not qualify to be “white” and to suppress and lower the citizenship status of those one considers to be inferior. Those are the cold harsh fact, deny as you want but that is reality and one we must face that fact if we are to overcome hate.
This election has shown the ugly side of America: those whose hatred was fueled by lies created by teens overseas to make money to a foreign power manipulating the electoral system to gain political control. Fear mongering dominated: the fear that white America would be overrun and overthrown by those who do not match that idea outward appearance.
Before I go into a massive soapbox rant, the only time I will comment on this sordid affair, there is one silver lining. We now see how much hatred exists in that underbelly US, how far people will fall and what they would sell to enforce that hate.
For those who study this sort of issues, there is now a clear need the other 50 percent of the nation to address the deep divide and to find a way out of what the next four years may ensue. We need critical thinking to be instilled in all schools, programs that tout real history and values not shameful pseudo and lies, we need to elevate education not demean it, and we need to actually practice the values of righteousness in tolerance, respect of ALL mankind regardless of color, religions, etc. and we need to instill the value of love.
We have so far to go in 2016 to bring equality to all and stop this senseless hate/fear mongering, it is a shock but maybe one our nation needed to see so we do not fall further into this hate abyss… mark my words this time next year we shall hears screams from those who followed blindly surprised at has happened and looking for a way out …
