The latest woman, I think, to come forward and accuse Trump of rape was E Jean Carroll. Apparently, this was a false accusation because Trump made it quite clear that the 'type' of women he prefers raping did not include the 'type' Carroll represents! Trump rips babies from their mothers' arms and places them in cages, he brags about grabbing women by their crotches against their will, he is a pathological liar. Trump self defines as a moral retard, a spiritually sub-human being. So, we must ask who and what are his supporters. With the election looming, political pundits of all stripes keep beating the drum which insists we do not disrespect Trump supporters, that this is itself bad practice, mean spirited and will cause these peculiar people so lacking in ability to make ethical decisions to dig in and vote unethically again. Surely, speaking the truth should preempt prudence and we should not pander to the unconscionable. These people are motivated by fear and hate, they do not embrace their fellow humans rather fear them. It seems some of Trump supporters find some of his behavior appalling as was the case of one woman interviewed who said taking babies from their mothers was terrible. Still, she supported Trump 100%. This makes it clear that the over riding value Trump provides his supporters is his promise to make America white again. This is more important to Trump supporters than rape or kidnapping and subsequent abuse and killing of children. Progressives absolutely must not darken or weaken their aspirations for humanity and the planet to appease Trump supporters. If we cede the decency inherent in the progressive perspective to appease Trump supporters and adjust our moral stand to appeal to them in order to win an election then what is the value of that win? If facing and embracing the light does not prevail so be it!

I am an ordinary citizen who for the first sixty years of his life was mostly disinterested in politics. Then George Bush and Dick Cheney intruded into my consciousness and I realized politics is important and determines who lives and who dies. (more...)
