Racism is so ingrained in the American culture of white privilege that when people protest against racism some of the Americans most privileged think they are protesting against America.
When a president is so insecure that he has to hide in bunkers and behind protective barriers, comforting the bone spurs that are suddenly acting up again, and trying to wage war against PEACEFUL American citizens, peaceably assembling to petition the government for a redress of grievances — a right enshrined by specific reference in the First Amendment — it is a failed presidency that is reduced to a legacy of violence against its own citizens, and on the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre when another tyrannical government waged war against its own citizens in PEACEABLE assembly.
In his inauguration, Trump promised to end “this American carnage” (of peace and prosperity he had inherited from Obama). Instead, he has replaced Obama’s peace and prosperity with a true American carnage and now even his own former top advisors have broken their silence and condemned Trump as the threat to the Constitution that he is.
