Heartbroken.

I am disgusted and disappointed in my fellow Americans today.

I find it appalling that Trump has not said more than his few statements about the issue in Charlottesville. [That you know are not coming from him. They are coming from his writers and advisors. When he’s truly moved or upset he goes to Twitter. I haven’t seen a damn thing from him so far about these racists harming fellow Americans. These domestic terrorists. “So sad.”] He speaks so forcefully about everything else but is silent when domestic terrorism occurs. He speaks so forcefully about immigrants who are supposed racists. He is so forceful about “Making America Great Again”. If that’s the case, President Trump, I am asking you to please do that. Make a stand against racism. Make America truly great. Do your job as our president; apologize and vow to help keep our fellow Americans safe no matter their color, race, religion, sexual preference, or background. Make it known that these were white nationalists and they are to blame for this horrific crime!

I am heartbroken.
There are people that are/were Trump defenders that are not saying a damn thing right now. They are staying silent while their fellow Americans are in critical condition and dead.  Where are you right now? Why aren’t you crying out in vain for these men and women who are hurt? Is it because they are possibly liberal, black, brown, Asian, or just disagree with you? Why aren’t you screaming for these racist groups to be stopped? If you truly wanted America to be great again we would be working together to stop this sort of thing from happening.
Honestly, any Trump supporter that is not angry tonight, I am disgusted with you. A 32-year-old woman is dead tonight because of racism. A 32-year-old woman is dead tonight because she wanted to make sure her fellow Americans were safe, felt protected and heard. An American is dead because of racism. If you are not angry about this then I truly believe you need to reevaluate your views, life, and values.
Unfortunately, when it comes to members of the KKK, the white nationalists, the white supremacists, etc. who are supporting Trump, he is silent about them. When members of the KKK, the white nationalists, the white supremacists, etc. were supporting Reagen he made it very clear that he separated himself from that group of people. Politics aside, Reagen made a stand and made the American people know he was not in support of the KKK, the white nationalists, the white supremacists, etc. or their views. He was a politician through and through but he knew where to draw the line and knew when something was so obviously wrong. Where is Trump? Why isn’t he standing up against these white supremacists? I understand you don’t bite the hand that feeds you, however, when do you draw the line? Stand up and speak out! Call these hate groups out!
We need to hold President Trump accountable for these types of things. He himself held Obama accountable for issues that happened within the US. Republicans held Obama accountable for issues that happened during his presidency. Democrats held Obama accountable for issues that happened during his presidency. The world held Obama accountable for issues that happened during his presidency. We need to hold Trump accountable for the men and women that are dead and injured because of today’s rally. We need to hold Trump accountable for the hate groups that killed our fellow American’s today.
Where are Trump’s comments about the two police officers that were killed today? Where are the Trump supporters who were screaming “Blue Lives Matter”? Why are you okay with acts of outright hate? Why are you okay with your president being silent on the issue? Why are you okay with being silent?
My heart and love go out to the three families of those who were lost today as well as the 19 other families who have injured family members. I will pray for you and your loved ones. I will stand with you. I will cry for you and with you. I will do whatever I can to help you get justice.
Trump, as an American I am asking you to do your job and call out these radical white supremacists. Call you these radical white nationalists. Call our these hateful groups. Condemn white nationalists, white supremacists, neo nazis, etc.
I’m sorry for rambling. I am just upset and angry over what is happening in our country today and the men and women that are supporting these radical racists.
P.S. Kudos to the Governor of Virginia and Mayor of Charlottesville for standing up and telling these racists they are garbage and trash. They are not American, need to stop, go home, and they are not welcome in their state/city. I second their views, they are not welcome in our country!

  1. Yes. This is happening in my state. Charlottesville is a college town. The KKK basically marched through the campus. Fuck.
    I’m moving my daughter to college tomorrow. Not UVA, though it could have been and it might as well be.
    I am supposed to be editing blog posts about silly toddler stuff but I cannot stop reading the news. And also I don’t want to read the news anymore.
    It’s disgusting.

    1. Oh my god, Darlene. I’m so sorry, I know this must hit so close to home because you live in that state and you’re moving your daughter to college. What a terrifying time in our country. 😦 My thoughts will be with you, your family, and your daughter as we navigate through this mess.

      1. Thanks. She’s about 100 miles from Charlottesville but it could happen anywhere. Sadly.
        My heart is with the victims. And the families of the victims. And the families of the freshmen starting at UVA next week. And with all of America because WTF.
