United We Stand

Have not seen those words ~ united we stand ~ in comments on various article or among sanctimonious Facebook memes.

If I see, however, one more person telling us we have to unite, I will spit nails.

What do they want me to do?

Join the Ku Klux Klan, don white hooded robes and terrorize persons of color?

Join a Neo-Nazi group and start spray painting swastika's on Synagogues?

Raise my right hand in a salute proclaiming Hail Trump with the White Nationalists?

Nope, nope, nope, not happening. If however citizens want to unite to declare the Klan, and the Nazi's terrorist groups, outlaw them, arrest members, lock them up, okay, I will unite behind that cause.

I am also not uniting behind a president who wants to override First Amendment rights by making laws that abridge freedoms ~ speech, press, to worship, of peaceful assembly. He is already violating those rights and it will get worse unless Congress stops him.

During his campaign he tweeted numerous lies; he has spoken numerous lies; continues to do so ~ he wants to end government transparency by barring reporters and others from letting citizens know exactly what he and his cronies are doing.

You want to unite behind that kind of government that is your choice. Me? Nope, not happening.
