Continuing Racism

That’s right, Jeff Sessions was originally turned down by Republicans for a federal judgeship for being too racist. I guess that doesn’t matter anymore.

Who else has Trump picked for his cabinet? In addition to racist Sessions, there is also Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (ret.) for national security advisor. Flynn is a bigot who said that Americans should fear all Muslims. And finally there is Trump’s pick to run the CIA, Rep. Michael Pompeo (R-KS). Pompeo was a member of the Republican congressional Benghazi investigation, and when his colleagues decided they didn’t have enough evidence to accuse Hillary Clinton of any crime, this was not good enough for him, so he wrote his own minority report accusing Clinton of a cover-up.

It isn’t looking good. Trump is picking people for his cabinet who are to the right of most Republicans. And if you thought Trump was being racist and bigoted just to win the election, think again.

    The change that some of the voters is here and its called nepotism and conflict of interest.Voters exchanged the bush, clinton families for the trump family. The ones who have declared bankrupty many times, used the tax laws for their own advantage and haven’t done a lick to help underpriviledged peope nor veterans.

    Sadly the specific minorities who will be targetted are probably going to be blacks and muslims both of whom appeared to have participated in some form of protest voting or who may have skipped voting altogether. There is such a thing as least of two “evils” and Trump clearly isn’t it. Even muslim citizens who may have thought they would be spared and voted or Trump or even Johnson may be targeted

    In the town I live, the Muslims are the doctors. Sure they’ll want to register, ha,ha. When my children were young and in sports, the Redneck fathers kept the muslim sons of the doctors sitting on the bench, not put in games. I stood with their mother because I was furious. Needless to say, both sons are now doctors helping others.
    I doubt any of the children of those Rednecks became doctors helping others.

    On another site, a few weeks ago, someone accused me of being a Muslim. She also accused me of other things as well, but the Muslim thing struck me as amusing. I’m still not sure how she came to that. probably because I simply disagreed with everything she said. Bless her little heart. When they were handing out brain cells she was in another line. But now my first thought was that I’m going to have to register as a Muslim when they come to door to door requesting my religious affiliation. That was the first thought that popped into my head when the list was first mentioned, and I see the same idea is being mentioned in other places, like Trevor Noah and others. I hate to give up my Satanist group but these are hard times with hard choices to be made. As-salāmu alaykum.

    Too funny Wildwood. Because I admired my Muslim friend’s long dresses, I now wear long dresses all summer. So cool in the heat. And because I am allergic to cigarette smoke, I have to wear a mask. To have the mask on, I have to wear a prairie hat to keep the mask from velcroing to my hair. Gentle teasing from those around me. Oh, and now I wear a safety pin to town.

    So, everyone is outraged by Trumps selections… why? He is appointing people that are reflections of his campaign rhetoric. Outrage now is a straight up joke.

    Just to clarify. My comment is directed towards his supporters and those that didn’t have the spine to speak against him during the campaign
