We have spent the past few decades gravitating towards a level of sensitivity and political correctness that has surpassed and suppressed our baser selves and previous insensitive and brass generations. Sadly, we are coming to the end of an era, a proverbial backlash as the pendulum swings towards the opposite end of the spectrum. Whether he said it or not, his s***h*** comment was repeated over and over again on cable news stations all week long. One interview I saw had a former international relations expert who not only used that language but racial slurs including the n-word more than once! The news anchor he was talking to, who happened to be black, did not bat an eye! I almost choked… he was making a point rather than calling someone that name, but it was still shocking.
Those baser selves, the Make America Great clan have a leader, and sadly they have joined together with decent people who were hoodwinked into thinking he would make our country better. Okay, I will give you that the economy is booming and many people have been promised more money in their bank accounts… but is that what is most important to us as a people? Money?
Have we lost our moral compass, our ideals, the meaning of America, our sense of justice?
The outrage is constant, but when a certain level of anger or outrage is maintained, it becomes normal and we no longer are shocked.
The more our president, OUR PRESIDENT, uses the kind of language we don’t accept from our own children and spouts the ideals we are ashamed to call our own, the more his base (those baser Americans) feels empowered to spew their hatred in their own small communities across our country.
I hope you are planning on marching next Saturday to show that those of us who still believe that we WERE moving in the right direction before this deplorable man came to power does not represent who we are as a nation.
