It’s been one year since Trump has taken office. On the anniversary of the inauguration, the US government has been shut down. It’s the only time in history where one party had both houses of congress and the presidency and still managed to shut down the government.
Everyday, Trump and his cronies tears at the democratic fabric of America. What has taken the country over 200 years and the backbone policies of why America has become a superpower and leader in the world, Trump and his cronies are ripping it to pieces.
Scandal after scandal, conservatives seem to care less and less. This supposed ‘value’ voters seems to now be ok with supporting a man who has 5 children with 3 wives (who he cheated on each with), with someone who has affairs and pays hush money to porn stars, and probably the worst, comparing Trump to Jesus. This is the person that the evangelicals looks up to and supports. Never has the Christian faith been in so much trouble.
The stress Trump has caused in this last year has been unwavering. Tweet after Tweet, chaos grows and spreads from his administration. Trump creates conflicts where there were none, Trump creates fear as to feed off the grief from his victims. The spread of his cancerous influence is not only affecting the US, but it’s had a rippling effect all over the world.
With his support of white supremacists, he has given life to a new era of horrors. White supremacists all around the world are embolden, no longer do they need to hide in the dark, they have their savior and they know they will have support from the top. In return, these white supremacist groups does his bidding to bring more fear and chaos around the world.
The world is bleak right now. There’s no sugar coating that fact. The scales are clearly tipped towards the darkness and it’s growing stronger.
It’d be easy to retreat and hide from all the madness that Trump has created. Ignorance does offer a degree of relief from reality, but the escape will only be temporary. Sooner or later, reality will kick in. Sooner or later, they will start coming for you too.
The world has seen this before. We have seen this level of darkness several times around the world. Every time this happens, the good and the brave did not hide, they did not take the easy road. They did not cower. It’s time once again to call on the good and brave once again to roar.
We are the protectors. It is us who will protect those that can’t. It is us who will fight back against the villainy. It is us who will drive the darkness back into the hole and tip the scale once again. It’s not going to be an easy road. There’s no time to waste and there’s much to do.
It’s up to all of us. Do something, however small, fight back. Fight.
