Truth. Most of you reading this know it already. Those who most need to see this, to fundamentally understand it for what it is, probably won’t. And even if they did, they would likely dismiss this as liberal bullshit, or some such.
Mexicans are not pouring across our border as though the dam is broken. Not by any stretch of the imagination. Illegal immigrants are not everywhere, and taking your jobs! This is simply a great big lie.
Refugees are not hiding secret ISIS operatives. They are fleeing from destruction, murder and worse at the hands of ISIS and their ilk, they are not the problem.
Islam is not so different from Christianity. The extremists are a very, very small percentage of what makes up Islamic practitioners, and are in no way representative of the religion. Lumping them all together is a completely false equivalency.
There is no war on Christianity. I repeat, there is NO war on Christianity. What there has been is a broader understanding that we are NOT, nor have we ever been, a Christian nation. That is why saying “Happy Holidays” rather than “Merry Christmas” has become prevalent – we are acknowledging there are others with different sensibilities out there.
Climate Change is a real, scientifically proven issue. If we do nothing to arrest it or otherwise impact it, the planet will become increasingly toxic to us, and we will find it harder and harder to survive. This is not some liberal lie to increase unnecessary regulations, it is the truth about how we have artificially effected the planet since the industrial revolution.
Non-straight people are no threat to anyone. Sexual orientation and gender identification do not make a person good or bad. These identifiers are harmful to none, and anyone who identifies as queer, gay, bi, transgendered or what-have-you should not be subject to discrimination on the basis of that. Period.
President Trump is dangerous to the world order. He will not make America great again, he will make us a third rate power. He will make us a laughing-stock, a has-been, an also-ran. We are in danger of losing our sovereignty over his outright lies and disregard for protocol, tact, and civility.
America is NOT a White nation. We never were, we never will be. We are a melting pot of diversity, or at least that’s what we should be. We have every race, creed, color, religion, and so on represented in our national identity. And remember, with the exception of the Native American tribes, we are ALL immigrants here.
Civility, kindness, compassion, understanding…what happened? When did it become ok to be an asshole? When did we let go of loving our neighbors, looking out for our brothers and sisters, and trying to help one another? This is not what we should ever be about. We should be trying to help each other be better people, not divide ourselves so that a small group of people can maintain a choke hold on power.
Consider that. All of this is the truth.
