I’m trying to think how to start this one off…
As an Australian, I have been astonished by the amount of “patriotic” Trump Supporters, who do not understand the very basics of their own country. Or sometimes, even their very own words.
The whole “Freedom of Religion” thing. The US already has that, under the 1A. I actually got into a sort-of conversation because someone said which Religion was the VP talking about? We all know he means Christianity, but a Trump supporters said “Well the Religion that the US was Founded on, Christianity”. Except, it was not. The Founding Fathers fought for separation for Church vs State, for a reason. Half the Founding Fathers did not follow a Religion. Some of them would be considered Atheists and Agnostics today. But then it got even stupider because then the supporter was all “Why are you bringing up people who are dead?” Because, you stupid person, you’re the one who said “Founded”. Guess what? Founding Fathers were the ones who Founded it. And they did not Found it on Christianity.
Then there was Brit Hume who was all “What Trump said was racist, but he’s not a racist and it was not xenophobic comments”…
He then decided to “prove his point” by saying to people to read an online thesaurus, which then continued to prove that Trumps comments were also xenophobic AND racist. So, that was a bit of “What…”? Then he brought how people were hating on him for his skin colour, which wasn’t even happening. Then a supporter agreed with him and then used Martin Luthers King Jr quote of “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” In support of Trump and Brit Hume.
I pointed to “Noah” an author apparently. That Noah, Brit Hume, Trump and all of their supporters needed to 100% believe, positively and absolutely, that we were judging them by their ‘content of their character’. Then asked Noah to explain to me how telling a group of American POC citizens to “go back to where they came from” is of good character? I also tagged Bernice King to let her know that Trump supporters who were supporting Trump comments were using her fathers words to support Trumps racism.
I want to say to these people that it’s just really obvious what they stand for. But I’m starting to believe that they really don’t understand, they are, in fact, just that dumb? And that they can’t back down now. I did see a couple of long time Trump supporters say what he said was not alright, but … that was only a couple,lol
