Hometown rally hurts and angers
Sunday, July 21, 2019
I’m a proud native of Pitt County, born at the old Pitt Memorial Hospital in 1967. Tonight, however, I’m angry that a town and community I love would be host to and party to such a disgusting and vile display of bigotry, racism and hatred peddled by the Liar-in-Chief.
He doesn’t care about this country. He doesn’t care about you or me. He cares only for himself. Trump’s points don’t come from a place of service or respect or love ... they come right off the stable floor. He has made it cool, I suppose, to be politically incorrect.
Well, that door swings both ways. So, I’m going to call it as I see it. He’s a racist. It’s that simple. He doesn’t care about solutions. He has none. Trump cares only about telling people which brown or black person to be scared of and what you can blame them for.
The draft-dodger-in-chief, whose family has not one ounce of service to any community in its past, has the nerve to call The Squad and anyone like them unpatriotic — all while we taxpayers fund his golf trips and his family’s profiting off their role in government.
Everything he stands for makes my blood boil. He sucks up to disgusting dictators and offends long-time allies. He defends the nation that butchered a journalist in blood-curdling fashion and people go to his disgusting spectacles and chant and spread his bigotry and lies.
Tonight was a fascist rally in my hometown. I love Greenville and Pitt County and sometimes people and places you love make you angry and hurt. That happened tonight. I hope, one of these days, the scales will fall from people’s eyes and we will see the truth of what this man is doing. Clearly, that time isn’t now.
