Is Trump the Silver Shirts' Leader
Will Donald Trump be the leader the right wing GOP has been waiting for to lead toady’s version of the America’s Silver Shirts? Silver shirts was based on Nazi Germany’s Brown Shirts. Trump has already gotten the support of the White Supremacists and the Ku Klux Klan and all the closeted angry racists of the GOP party. Remember, people laughed at Adolph Hitler and Benito Mussolini and said the two would never come to power. We all know the horror and terror they wreaked upon the world. If the U.S. doesn’t wake up this country could very well see the same thing happen here. The Silver Shirts were America’s answer to the Brown Shirts, same kind of ideology, same kind of entitlement over others and same kind of twisted propaganda that unsuspecting people fell for. There could be small revolutions fighting against terrorism—in all its forms, ethnic-type of discrimination, or even the young, disenchanted low-wage college people who have huge debts but low-wage jobs. The young who bought into the “American Dream” and did what they should have done to get ahead not realizing the oligarchies stacked the deck against them. And the young people who are victims of “poverty draft,” those who go into the military believing it is the only realistic option for getting a higher education, receive veteran benefits and better their lives, but the GOP refuses to pass any legislation to repay these government personnel for their service. Remember, most of these service members will come back trained in warfare so we here better have something for them to continue bettering their lives, like being in a union that will continue their upward mobility. If not, they will either end up on the streets or blindly following Trump and his Silver Shirt-types. The blame will ultimately be on the voters. This election could be the most important one in the last 60 or 70 years. Trump vs Sanders, one’s policies could last five to six years and one, like Sanders, could last for 100 years and save the country or even the world, like President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s. GOP supporters love their Medicare and Social Security, but they are so ignorant that they don’t realize these programs were not only passed by a Democratic president, but are considered socialist programs. The Affordable Care Act is a way to control or prevent insurance companies from gouging people, it is not Obamacare giving away free stuff. These people also think Trump is a good businessman. He is not. He inherited his wealth, but has failed to really build upon what his father gave him. Trump’s rhetoric on immigrants is ignorance at its most hateful. Everyone one of us is an immigrant to this country and our foreparents were greeted by the first Americans. It took all of us, immigrants and native born, to build this country to its greatest achievements, but its decline lies at the feet of the greedy GOP and the likes of people like Trump. All one has to do is look at history to make the right decision on who to support and who to vote for. I think our unions are slowly making the right decisions on these choices.
