Cancer Causing Windmills Wasn’t the Worst Part of the Rally

Donald J. Trump, the President of the United States of Northern America cited windmills cause cancer. He trailed off as if to gesticulate, “I don’t even believe that.” I find it downright reprehensible that he even formed those words. That’s not what should upset you. No, no, no, no. What should upset you are the thousands of people in attendance that didn’t utter a gesture of disagreement. Those people didn’t murmur, look confused, or face-palm knowing the person heading choices made on behalf of the billionaires, said something so stupid, that even a caveman would scoff at it.

These people vote. This means, that the people who listened to message that windmills cause cancer, use a ballot to nudge into power, people, bills, laws, and more that govern how many people will die from deregulation. They vote for wealthy people to get wealthier and the poor to suffer more. They vote in favor of religion having 100% control over government and social issues. These people, who don’t care what Trump or any republican says, will believe and 100% tout the spoken words as facts, so long as they can hate the LGBTQ people of the country — along with all minorities.

There is only one thing we need to help fight against this level of stupidity, and that is personal dignity. Dignity above hatred of “the other”. Dignity against misinformation. Dignity against the willful ignorant that are too afraid to leave their bubbles to know just how bad it really is. Dignity against those with no empathy, and damn sure against those with no sympathy for those outside their bubble. It is time to shame the hatred, and remove the veil of protection placed over it. Bring it into the light of the social public square for true scrutiny and see once and for all, if being stupid, blind, and deaf to the woes of the people is righteous.

A catch-all topic based channel without restraint. I’m about shedding light through the fog using compare & contrast, mixed with reasoning, and personal views.
