above: image from website inviting Americans to move to Cape Breton if Trump wins…I altered it slightly after viewing his ‘Prince of darkness’ speech at the RNC last night.
It was interesting watching Trump spew out his version of the awful spot America finds herself in last night at the RNC. Interesting because now we have a situation where if Trump wins the November election millions of Americans will flood across the still wall-less border to get away…..if he loses it means more of the dangerous, murderous, hateful, uncaring, broken state that exists now……meaning millions of Americans will flood across the still wall-less border to get away.
In the fifties, a guy named Woody Guthrie wrote a song about his damned landlord, Fred Trump (the same Fred Trump that his son Donald told us was sucha wonderful man at the RNC). The song has been reworked (story link) by Tom Morello, Ryan Harvey, and Ani DiFranco.
With lyrics like these you have to ask “just who exactly is the enemy Mr. Trump?”:
Old Man Trump knows
Just how much
he stirred up
In the bloodpot of human hearts
When he drawed
That color line
Here at his
Eighteen hundred family project
While the rich (that includes you too Donald) get richer, too many people are broke and broken….too many systems are broke…Roll up yer sleeves.
