THE SHAME YOU & DONALD TRUMP HAVE BROUGHT ON AMERICA
By Patricia Moloney Dugas
“She’s a Liar – a criminal!” “She is a Horrible, Horrible Human Being” August 6, 2016. “She’s the Devil!”
Because Trump is losing now: his vitriol becomes increasingly more destructive, even libelous. The more he loses, the more poisonous he becomes. The real Trump emerges. He is wounded and has no connection with reality – only outrageous lies and exaggerations of his alone ability to restore America. He has decimated the spineless Republican Party who stand by and watch.
This is the man you want to suddenly turn global and presidential, take over America, and become the leader of the Free World? He has repeatedly threatened our NATO family, the European Union, slam the door on all Islamists, Mexicans, refugees, to build walls, break fair trade and other global agreements… – does this please you?
He must be removed now before he destroys what is left of our nation’s integrity. This consummate bully is punching his way through his critics and opponents, or anyone disagreeing with him: “Liars! Cheaters! Rigged! Devils!
Can’t you see whats happening? Politics as usual? No! It’s the ravings of a delusional narcissist the disgraceful media has turned into its own toy clown. Because you accept him as ‘normal’ you make America look foolish. The shame he has already brought on America tells the rest of the Free World watching with despair, that we approve of his antics. He’s on his own joy ride, to hell with the consequences. To hell with the need more than ever, for a noble American world leader.
Only my opinion? Washington (CNN) “50 prominent Republican foreign policy and national security experts — many veterans of George W. Bush’s administration — have signed a letter denouncing Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy and pledging not to vote for him. The letter, first reported by The New York Times Monday, warns: “We are convinced that in the Oval Office, he would be the most reckless President in American history.”
Charles Krauthammer Washington Post columnist: “This is beyond narcissism. I used to think Trump was an 11-year-old, an undeveloped schoolyard bully. I was off by about 10 years. His needs are more primitive, an infantile hunger for approval and praise, a craving that can never be satisfied. He lives in a cocoon of solipsism where the world outside himself has value — indeed exists — only insofar as it sustains and inflates him.”
Shame on all of you: (1) the biased, unprincipled media who created and nurtured this charlatan; (2) all the TV commentators who lie to us boldface and defend him, (3) all you citizens who chose deliberately to bask in his contempt for everything American, and (4) the Republican Party who don’t have the guts to trash Trump, apologize, and bring us a truly viable candidate to carry the GOP banner. Shame on all of you.
What you fail to acknowledge: America is not Broken. What you are too blinded to realize is that the rest of the world is in serious financial and social decline while America has come through the 2008 near-disaster because of president Obama, who had to work with a hostile, impotent, Republican Congress. What is broken in America is the hordes of restless, impatient, disheartened citizens who want to lash out and overthrow everything. Wake up and look outside yourself, look outside your party, and look outside at the rest of the world. Turn back and study carefully, honestly – think responsibly.
To the Republican Party: Because you have reluctantly stood behind this perilous bombast, the Republican Party has failed to dismiss Trump and then to rally around one of their other candidates to go up against the much maligned Hillary Clinton, deemed undesirable by this same damaging media. The GOP would have a real chance to regain their integrity, and maybe the White House. Right now, the party is wretched and cowardly. We are at a dangerous crossroads.
To all of you choosing, following, and blindly defending this narcissist on his own private joy ride, do you also choose to believe his misogynistic vitriol against Hillary Clinton? Is anyone as bad, as mental, as criminal, as dangerous as his absurd portrayal of her? Shame on him for abusing her and shame on you for preferring to believe his preposterous accusations. Stop the hating.
When Trump loses: he will claim ‘everyone’ loves and wants him, but it’s a system rigged by Washington politicians, a trashed country, a rigged election — and you will believe him! He will shake off the dust; go back to his tower, leaving American integrity in shambles. You too will blame anything except the bombast himself – and your own self.
I ask you to wake up and apologize for your careless, selfish, misguided devotion. This is not a political issue, it is a moral one. The world is waiting for a noble American leader and you are standing in the way.
Wake up America!
