An Open Letter To Trump Supporters

While reviewing a few Media Matters posts of Facebook, I ran across an open letter with is a must read. The open letter is admittedly (by the author) long, but we are at a point in of lives and our society when rational thought form a liberal perspective could save our nation.

Hey, if you feel it is too long, read it in parts. Read some and comeback and read more. Don't fail to join the highly informed in our quest to ward-off the potential Dark Ages of Donald Trump in the White House with a GOP majority in the US Congress. I personally do not feel the open letter is long. 

It is also worth noting the author of the open letter is a Viet Nam veteran.

"All Hail the Veteran!"

Patrick Heide
My open letter to Trump supporters. I know it is long but please read and take a second to think about it. The future of this country depends on it. 

So You Want Someone To ‘Tell It Like It Is’? OK, Here You Go. 

1. You join a lying machine and call Hillary crooked. But you support a man who refuses to release his tax returns. You support a greedy, self serving, manipulative proven tax cheat. You support a crooked narcissistic psychopath who is worried his tax returns would reveal evidence of financial ties to Russian oligarchs and other dictators of the world. Just like we now know Putin's puppets illegally paid millions to his crooked former campaign manager, maybe he has been getting paid too. A corrupt little man whose daughter vacations with Putin's girlfriend. Making Russia great again? A con man who funneled millions of campaign money to his own companies and used campaign money to pay his family handsomely. Using his own words, a disgusting and corrupt man who surrounds himself with a disgusting corrupt people. 

2. You say you love our veterans but support a man who believes POWs are not heroes because they were captured? A man who has shown he lacks emotional intelligence when he attacked families of a fallen war hero. A man whose company fired a veteran for being deployed to Afghanistan. A man who insults and derides our generals.

3. You think a soulless, heartless small man who mocked a disabled reporter will make a good president. A man whose first instinct after a tragedy is always self-aggrandizement, like after Orlando mass shooting & when Dwyane Wade's cousin Nykea Aldridge was killed. As 3,000 people were dying, this man bragged about how 9/11 attacks were good for him & bragged about how his building is now the tallest in Manhattan just hours after the attack. When the pound fell to a 30-year low following the vote to exit EU, he boasted about making money off British economic uncertainty. When the housing market collapsed in 2008 and millions of Americans lost their homes, he said “ I 'sort of hope' real estate market tanks.” Trump is always looking out for Trump. How do you believe a greedy, narcissistic man who fundamentally lacks empathy and compassion will be a good president? He is not even a good person.

4. You say you're patriotic & love this country but you support a man who has so little understanding of the basic parameters of our constitution's limits & has zero respect for it, except the part he uses to incite violence. A careless small man who asked Russia to spy on our former Secretary of State. A man who trash talks our NATO allies and our president but lavishly praises brutal dictators like Saddam Hussein, Kim Jong Un, Muammar Gaddafi, Vladimir Putin...etc

5. You support a small man who has been married three times and has admitted to infidelity in the past. A man who was accused of raping his wife & has a federal lawsuit accusing him of raping a 13-year-old girl during a party hosted by convicted pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein. A man who comments about his daughters breasts and body. Then you turn around and bring up Bill Clinton's history with women? I agree with you 100% Bill has a disgraceful history with women but no comparison to Trump who has said cringeworthy, disturbing things about women his whole life. May I remind you Bill is NOT running to be the next president. If you are saying oh, candidates spouses are fair game then you can't ignore that he is married to a woman whose naked pictures are all over the internet. 

6. You support a man whose business career is a very long list of bankruptcies, defaults and deceptions because he is good for our economy? A man who was born into wealth and built that wealth by scamming, stiffing and bullying ordinary working citizens of this great country. 

7. Yes, Hillary is not perfect, then again no one is. You call her dishonest but support a narcissistic pathological liar? Every time Trump opens his mouth every other word that comes out is a lie. Fact checkers have proven it over and over again. We are talking about a man who makes things up to spew hate and fear, like when he lied about seeing an Iran ransom video and a video of muslims celebrating in New Jersey on 9/11. The man is incapable of telling the truth and he is delusional.

8. You support a hypocritical man who hired undocumented immigrants for his real estate projects & exploited our visa program. He is a man capable of solving our immigration problem?

9. I agree 100% if she's elected Hillary and her whole family must distance themselves from the Clinton foundation. Let other people continue the great work the foundation is doing. With that said, you support a man whose foundation is found guilty of a pay-to-play scam and false claims of giving on its tax forms and then turn around and try to push fabricated scandals about the Clinton foundation. The IRS found the con man used funds from his charitable foundation to make a campaign donation to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi. Just after 4 days of the bribe payment Pam dropped Trump U case. He also held $150K fundraiser for Pam after she dropped a criminal case against his university. His foundation claimed on its tax return forms that it gave $10,000.00 to The Giving Back Fund, but the organization says that donation does not exist. A man who completely retooled his charity to spend other people’s money. A man with deep ties to global financiers, foreign politicians and criminals. 

10. You claim the con man whose line of clothing and accessories are made in Bangladesh, China, Honduras and other low-wage countries is the man to fix our labor laws? You claim the man who outsources everything is the answer to creating jobs here at home?

11. You claim the unfit, unstable Putin's little puppet whose campaign is fully embracing alt-right's anti-Muslim and anti-Immigrant ideologies with all their conspiracy theories is the one to unite the country?

12. You support a bottom feeder who put racial discrimination in housing at the heart of his real estate developments, started the birther movement, said "Obama would look perfect on food stamps, he has the right face for it,” and has shown he is prejudice with his actions & words over and over again. Then he pretends he cares about the black communities. He brings up Hillary's reference to a group of violent repeat criminals as "super-predators" in 1996? I don't agree with her choice of words all those years ago but she has apologized since. Something Trump refuses to do. 

Of course you can use all kind of deflection tactics & tell yourself whatever makes you feel better but the reality is if you are supporting a racist, misogynistic, xenophobic, bigoted, unfit, unqualified, disgusting con man, you really should admit to yourself you don't care what he says or does. You are using your hatred to cloud your judgement.

Your Trump Vote Is An Antithesis To American Values

An optic for the ages.  Black, supposed, ministers who publicly responded to Trumps failed attempt to have 100 black ministers' visit Trump Towers.  How does these "ministers' reconcile what follows?

Donald Trump's irrefutable support from white supremacists.

White Supremacists Heimbach frequents Trump rallies

If you think Heimbach is simply an overzealous Trump supporter, think again. He admits to Pat Buchanan as a major political influence.

Trump Supporters More Likely To View Blacks Negatively -- Reuters/Lpsos Poll

Supporters of U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump are more likely to describe African Americans as "criminal," "unintelligent," "lazy" and "violent" than voters who backed some Republican rivals in the primaries or who support Democratic contender Hillary Clinton, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll. Ahead of the Nov. 8 election to replace Barack Obama, the first black…

Trump Supporters; An Indication of Conservative America

As I listen to that familiar conservative "rebel yell' USA, USA, USA, I think of the reality of it all. The Daily Kos published a piece that embodies the essence of Trump supporters and their "USA, USA, USA."


The Daily Kos

The GOP: One party, under Trump, with bigotry and intolerance for all

Donald Trump has said so many repugnant things on the campaign trail that recounting them has practically become hackneyed. But new data from YouGuv and Public Policy Polling now confirms what we have known all along: many of his supporters eat it up precisely because they are more likely to be intolerant gay-hating racists than any other bloc of Republican voters. They are young and old, rich and poor, highly educated and less educated, born agains and born fine the first time—and they are united under Trump like no other candidate.
Lynn Vavreck brings us the illuminating data points
Slavery: We miss it!
Nearly 20 percent of Mr. Trump’s voters disagreed with the freeing of slaves in Southern states after the Civil War. Only 5 percent of Mr. Rubio’s voters share this view.
Deporting all undocumented immigrants immediately: Yipee!
Exit poll data from the South Carolina primary revealed that nearly half the Republicans who turned out on Saturday wanted undocumented immigrants to be deported immediately. Donald Trump won 47 percent of those voters.
Barring Muslims from the U.S.: Absolutely!

Voters were asked if they favored temporarily barring Muslims who are not citizens from entering the United States, something Mr. Trump advocates, and 74 percent said they did. He won 41 percent of that group.
Banning gays from the U.S.: Sign us up!
Data from Public Policy Polling show that a third of Mr. Trump’s backers in South Carolina support barring gays and lesbians from entering the country. This is nearly twice the support for this idea (17 percent) among Ted Cruz’s and Marco Rubio’s voters and nearly five times the support of John Kasich’s and Ben Carson’s supporters (7 percent).
Japanese internment: Sure, why not?
Similarly, YouGov data reveal that a third of Mr. Trump’s (and Mr. Cruz’s) backers believe that Japanese internment during World War II was a good idea, while roughly 10 percent of Mr. Rubio’s and Mr. Kasich’s supporters do. 
White supremacy: Yep, pretty much.
The P.P.P. poll asked voters if they thought whites were a superior race. Most Republican primary voters in South Carolina — 78 percent — disagreed with this idea (10 percent agreed and 11 percent weren’t sure). But among Mr. Trump’s supporters, only 69 percent disagreed. Mr. Carson’s voters were the most opposed to the notion (99 percent), followed by Mr. Kasich and Mr. Cruz’s supporters at 92 and 89 percent. Mr. Rubio’s backers were close to the average level of disagreement (76 percent).

Trump's The Serial Liar Demands An Apology From Hillary Clinton

Let's start this piece with a bit of "Trump mania." No, we do not find the carnival barker narcissist in any way entertaining, but we must devote our share of time and cyberspace to the growing cesspool of love reserved for our past which included the likes of Adolf Hitler, Mussolini, and much farther back in time: Nero.
The Daily Kos: Cartoon: Trumplandia
Watch “Trumplandia” on @Vimeo

As of this past Saturday night and the Democrat party Debate, Hillary Clinton has garnered attention for remarks related to Trump's rhetoric and its influence on the world stage. Clinton and ISIS equipped with Carnival Barker rhetoric. Clinton's remarks have been proven not accurate as to specificity, but I doubt it is possible ISIS leadership hasn't used Trump's bluster as fodder for sycophant recruits.  

Always the opportunist, Trump has, since the wee hours of Wednesday morning, has embarked on a policial strategy of forcing Clinton into a potential advertisement apology. Yes, he demands an apology based on the remarks. Trump has used the word "lies" so much over the past five months many ignore his consistent and over-the-top pathological condition that manifest in incessant lies and embellishment. 

Politifacts, who Trump calls a Liberal publication, has published a review of Trump's veracity; the word is wasted on Trump.  
PolitiFact has been documenting Trump’s statements on our Truth-O-Meter, where we’ve rated 76 percent of them Mostly False, False or Pants on Fire, out of 77 statements checked. No other politician has as many statements rated so far down on the dial.
In fact, the Tampa Bay times Fact-checking division has awarded Trump the "Lie of the Year" collar.
