NEW YORK, US, 30 November 2016
Trump won because his overt racism appealed to mainly rural whites who didn’t grow up with people of colour and hence had the natural human fear of the “other”. They hated seeing a black president for eight long years.
His campaign to ban Muslims in this country also appealed to minorities who are Christians, Sikhs, Hindus, and Jews because of their traditional enmity with Islamic forces. His bigotry appealed to them so much that they even turned a blind eye to his racism and sexism.
Democrats were sick and tired of Clinton emails, FBI and Clinton emails. So, many didn’t vote. Sure Clinton sucks but because you laughed at the idea of the “lesser of the two evils”, now deal with the worst of the two evils. Unlike Trump, Clinton is at least cosmopolitan in her outlook. Also she acknowledges the threat global warming or climate change poses to humans, animals, and nature.
Many also didn’t vote because they believed Clinton was sure to win anyway. It was this overconfidence that proved fatal.
The media also falsely portrayed a landslide victory for Clinton. Her supporters bought into it and the sense of urgency evaporated. Many of the Bernie supporters voted Trump because they felt Clinton cheated Bernie out of the race even though he was the obvious winner between the two.
Hispanics did not support their own — the Mexicans and their champion Clinton because they failed to see orange Hitler coming. Now they too will pay the price because they belong to the same brackets that Trump is against.
Finally, change is the only permanent reality in this world where everything is ironically subject to the law of impermanence. Every eight years people want a change in party in the government. That is primarily because the party fails to deliver its promises. The party in power for the most part fails to delivers its promises because the loser party in the congress opposes its every move to ensure its failure in the eyes of the voters. Also the need for change is forever set in stone in our DNA.
Had Bernie fought he would have won — that is if we go by the polls. He defeated both of them in every poll. But polls are conducted by mainly media and we can’t trust media anymore as it proved itself so wrong.
Well now what? Series of ugly things will happen. Mexico will be harassed on the wall bill. 12 million undocumented minorities will suffer. Trump with Putin will inflict even more suffering on the Middle East. Minorities including blacks who have lived here for 400 years will be stopped and frisked in cities across US. Tax cuts for the super rich and the corporations. No minimum wage raise for the poor and many more.
The big question now is, what substantial changes can voters expect from an orange hitler, seriously? Nothing but fear, anger, frustration, division, hate, racism, death and destruction not only in this country but around the world. His first target is Muslims of colour, then illegal immigrants of colour with criminal record, second target is illegal immigrants of colour with no criminal record, then legal immigrants of colour with green card, then immigrants of colour with citizenship, the slavs, then Jews, Italians and Irish.
With his victory, and with the likes of him that have infested the republican party, the entire human species is on the brink of extinction from
- his total disregard for nature and therefore the eventual destruction of it to boost his bank account,
- nuclear war
In eight years people will be so sick and tired of all of this that they will vote for a democrat minority, possibly Michelle or some young Asian Indian, hoping she or he could save US from a WWIII. The drama of hope and change goes on.
O yes his personal fortune will rise from $4 billion to $30 billion in eight years. It happened with Bloomberg whose net worth was $4 billion when he entered the NYC mayor’s office, and when he left after three terms he was worth $27 billion and now worth $43 billion. But that’s about it. It doesn’t help the common man/woman.
If America belongs to whites because they invaded, and occupied this country by exterminating 90% of the native Americans to whom America or US actually belongs, then it certainly belongs to immigrants of colour who simply come here to better their lives without shedding a single drop of blood of the native Americans or the “legal” alien whites. This country belongs to the whole world.
In the words of Thomas Paine, in a peroration for freedom 240 years ago:
“O ye that love mankind! Ye that dare oppose not only the tyranny but the tyrant, stand forth! Every spot of the old world is overrun with oppression. Europe regards her ‘freedom’ like a stranger, and England hath given her warning to depart. O receive the fugitive, and prepare in time an asylum for mankind.”
The impact of the Internet and social media, with all its bombardment of info in general and negative campaign in particular from second to second on the users cannot be underestimated. It makes them susceptible to intense emotions and impulsive reactions.
The result is Trump who is a pathological liar, ignorant, proud tax evader, egomaniac, bigot, sexist and overt racist is voted to be the 45th president. Deal with it.
Welcome to nazi America!
Hail to Trump!
Hail to the fuhrer!
