Not Greenville, but not surprising
Monday, July 22, 2019
The Trump-instigated chant (“Send Her Back”) didn't surprise me, but I am not one who believes this is Greenville's culture. Greenville citizens have always been cordial to me, even the ones who hate my guts.
Trump was proud of himself as he fired up his brain-dead fans and approved the chant as he moved his head side to side, chin high with his typical Mussolini dictator style. From experience, I think Trump positions some of his cronies in the crowd at his events to start the chants and it's easy for the gullible to follow. He lies as usual, claiming he disapproved and tried to stop it. For those who seek truth, look at the tape.
Trump learned from the many years of Bible thumpers' tactics to create straw people, attaching their lies to them and burning them just like he has done to these four young congresswomen. Then this Murphy person running for Congress, who had campaign ads praising all Trump's policies (which indicates what type of leader Murphy would be) opened his mouth. According to the Reflector, Murphy said the chant was an unfortunate choice of words, then he out-and-out lies, saying the Congress members used anti-American rhetoric. (Everyone knows the rhetoric is against Trump's evil separation of children/parents and his other evil policies, not against America.)
I think Trump is happy with all these distractions. It keeps people from focusing on his other deeds. Maybe he would rather be called a racist than a rapist.
I am not surprised at how low America (I predicted it) has come in many ways because years ago it was easy to see (if one wanted to) the Bible thumpers were going to drive America to the bottom, but it really is a shock, watching it in real life.
