Genocide Watch is an organization that exists, according to its website, to "Predict, prevent, stop, and punish genocide and other forms of mass murder." Its purpose is to "build an international movement to prevent and stop genocide."

One of the pages on its website titled "10 Stages of Genocide," for which the organization's President Gregory H. Stanton, George Mason University Research Professor in Genocide Studies and Prevention, School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution, delineates the steps governments responsible for mass exterminations have traditionally followed.

These steps are not sequential and may occur simultaneously.

They are also preventable.

How many do we recognize playing out in Donald Trump's America today?

The first stage is classification.

According to Genocide Watch:

"All cultures have categories to distinguish people into 'us and them' by ethnicity, race, religion, or nationality: German and Jew, Hutu and Tutsi. Bipolar societies that lack mixed categories, such as Rwanda and Burundi, are the most likely to have genocide."

Donald Trump built his campaign, and now his presidency, on those "rapists," "murderers," and "animals" "invading" our country from the Southern border.

He accused Haitian immigrants residing here under temporary protected status as having AIDS.

He claimed 40,000 Nigerians would never "go back to their huts" after coming here.

He accused Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador the countries he called "shitholes" of "arranging" the migrant caravans of "illegals" coming to get us.

It's also no secret what he thinks of the media, which he smears with the label "fake news" and "enemy of the people" should it deign to report anything negative about what his administration is up to.

Trump refers to his political opponents as "globalists" who "want the globe to do well, frankly, not caring about our country."

Those "globalists," according to Trump, support "caravans" of "unknown Middle Easterners" en route from Central America to wreak havoc on American sovereignty.

When it comes to elections, says Trump, the "globalists" depend on millions of non-American "illegals" showing up in droves to vote.

Quote, "How many do we recognize playing out in Donald Trump's America today?" Unquote. I didn't need to read this article, to work out it was a Trump bashing article. One question arose in my mind, and that was : Why are these events being laid at the feet of Trump by the author, when these events have been ongoing by successive U.S. Presidents since 1968 ??????????????? Where is the finger pointing for the previous Presidents that all played their part in this outcome we are all looking at today ? To lay the blame at the feet of Trump is simply not playing fair. But then, since when is playing fair something the U.S. does ??????????

Sure, Trump has his issues, but he is NOT accountable for the issues coming to a head these days, that were set in motion long before he even came on the scene.

So I'm asking the author of this article, Why are you placing at Trumps feet, issues he is clearly, not accountable for ???????? I'm a Vietnam Vet, and I saw, at first hand the Genocide played out by American Forces that their Government's instructions upon the Vietnamese people's, a genocide still playing out today and future generations. Pray tell, where is the JUSTICE and ACCOUNTABILITY against the people who ARE accountable for that GENOCIDE ??????????? When you have meted out genuine justice against these CRIMINALS, come back then and talk about Trumps alleged crimes, but until the past has been cleaned up, there's no point in trying to clean up today without that recognition.
