My girls and I were moved to tears today as we strolled the streets of New York near our hotel, which as I stated happens to be within spitting distances of Trump Tower. We did what tourists do, we had tea at Bergdorf and did some shopping. Not because we don’t care about what is happening in America, to innocent people, like Heather Heyer who went to protest Charlottesville White Supremacy march and lost her life by a DOMESTIC TERRORIST.
We cried because as we came out of our couple of hours inside the bubble where we ate a lovely lunch, we landed straight into a protest. People, brave ones standing up for the rights of their fellow Americans. Not like the cowards who took a pipe to innocent African American, Deandre Harris inside a car park yesterday. Or the asshole who drove his car into a group of protesters defending their own right to freedom of speech.
We watched them marched by us and we cried. We cried for their bravery, but we also cried because within the crowd of people marching there were far too many Americans who were of an age that have probably marched against the Vietnam war. Who probably marched during Martin Luther King’s attempt for racial unity. Who probably already fought one war against Nazis. And it broke our hearts that in 2017 they are once again marching for the rights of people who were already given their rights.
The thing that is most ironic to me is that most of these White Supremacists have no real knowledge of what being a Nazi was/is all about. I mean do they know that Hitler went back into all the families genealogy and if there was any trace of blood in them that wasn’t German they were up for grabs. Anybody who wasn’t pure blooded German was at risk of ending up in a concentration camp? I mean let’s do some Ancestry.com DNA swabs on these guys and see what blood courses through their veins. Are any of them pure anything, American? Are any of us pure anything anymore???
There is also the reality that these white guys are flat out cowards, and I’m sure if their President really does start world war 3, none of those white boys that were in Charlottesville will be first in line to defend the country they claim they’re attempting to protect. Furthermore, you don’t even have your facts straight about being patriots. America was an ally fighting AGAINST the Nazis. The actual US patriots that fought to defeat them are probably turning in their graves. You’re a bunch of dumb-ass children who need to sit down.
Also the President you stand so loyally behind has a Jewish son in law who is sitting in the White House, who has his ear. His daughter is also an advisor to him, she conformed to Judaism and is raising three Jewish children…where is your logic, your sense, your cause???
You are lost children who need to sit the fuck down. While the rest of us with good sense continue to build a world of inclusion, unity and as best we can fairness of all regardless of race, colour, religion or gender. The happy news is that every single American we’ve come in contact with since being here is on the side of this ideal of how not only America should be, but how the world should be. I believe we will win in the end. Love will win.
