Reclaiming “Civility”

Trump initiates an order that sends children—babies—into concentration camps. The nation has the nerve to be divided on this issue. And Republican bigwigs actually use the Bible to condone this inhumanity.

Trump has regular twitter rants and holds self-serving rallies where he routinely takes shots at whoever dares to disagree with him. The same people who blocked and criticized President Obama at every turn do nothing to stop Trump from becoming America’s first dictator. They’re even throwing him a parade—with our money.

Trump’s supporters and government cronies take great delight in making the country as miserable as possible, punishing us for embracing the Black President that they despised. No one stops them.

Social media documents footage of racists boldly spewing their hatred towards minorities in public, without apology. Oh, that’s just “Trump’s America”.

Congresswoman Maxine Waters encourages the rest of us to do one of the few things that we can do to hold them accountable for their blatant efforts to take away our freedom and destroy our country. And SHE is the one that they call “uncivil”.



The Trump Administration. The Republican Party. White nationalists. White evangelicals. None of them have been “civil” to Americans who don’t look and think like them. People like me have had enough of the double standard.

Anyone reading this who actually has a problem with what Ms. Maxine said, hear me. God is on the side of the oppressed, not the privileged oppressor. Stop holding us to a standard that you have never been willing nor able to maintain. Telling us to be “civil” translates as “shut up while we kill you”, and that’s not going to happen.

Evil triumphs when good people do nothing. Since none of you have consciences or moral compasses, the voices of the oppressed will follow you to your comfort zones. There will be no peace for the wicked until YOU start being civil and good triumphs once again in these yet-to-be-United States.
