"...On this Continent,
a new nation, conceived in Liberty,
and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are...testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure."

1st President in U.S. History to Openly and Publicly Hail, Celebrate, and Promote White Supremacy
It's a New Era in Time.   Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States, became the first U.S. President in American history to openly, publicly, and unapologetically promote WHITE SUPREMACY while sitting as Head of State.
and then he played golf


Mr. Trump, who is prolific in using the expansive network of the [information highway] as a tool for reaching millions of Americans (as well as a global audience), to influence and dominate social discourse, and exert sway over the very thing viewed as reality, published a startling video from his Twitter account on Sunday, June 28, 2020, hailing and screaming out "WHITE SUPREMACY!".

With the video instantly broadcast to millions, Mr. Trump offered praise to those featured, describing them as "great people". Soon after sharing his praise, Mr. Trump --- the President quietly removed the video. And in the absence of a sober and public apology to the nation (which was never expected, as one must have a certain amount of deliberateness of intent to simply post a video), the President's staff offered a "public excuse" --- he didn't hear that part --- the part that we can't unhear.

In the days following, Mr. Trump was quoted as saying, "Black Lives Matter" is a [symbol to hate] [symbol of hate].

The President appears to be "On Game" and history informs us of the direction in which he is steering the course of the America people. It is very disheartening to know that this President stands in mockery of our quest to achieve parity and full human rights, by cruelly portraying our rally cry, "Black Lives Matter", as being something evil --- before the entire world. What sort of hocus-pocus, sorcery, and mind-control trickery is this? Why does he insist that our stand be against a blockade of murderous hatred, rather than a reasoned people and nation?

With the power of the presidency, Mr. Trump is using his opportunity to stoke racial hatred and race wars, using internet media platforms to dogwhistle calls-to-action, hoping to invoke the presence and roll-out of armed citizens standing in opposition and threat to other Americans.

Human beings are designed to make choices, and as shown by the many examples in the Bible, some things are difficult to process as truth, no matter what's said, who says, or how often. RIP Joshua.
