Not an alternate fact, I did vote for Donald Trump. I was a RINO and I voted for the worst candidate in the primary, the one I thought would lose against the flawed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. Heck, I had a hard time voting for her in the General Election. The rise of Bernie Sanders should have been a clue but Democrats are clueless. Even the worst candidate in the history of bad candidates couldn't be beaten by the Democratic choice.
I never imagined the breadth of Xenophobia in this country until Donald Trump won. It is not REALLY fear of Islamic Extremists. It is about all those reproducing Hispanics. I have many Hispanic friends who I love dearly, but I have to admit that I have been treated extremely rude by some Hispanics. Two examples out of many: I asked a man to lower his blasting radio on his boat. He yelled at me and made it louder. I was once standing in a hospital minding my own business, in my usual fog of "what am I doing here." A woman came over and started rattling off a long speech with lots of questions in Spanish. When she was finished, I said: "I don't speak Spanish." In perfect English she started yelling at me for not telling her sooner I didn't speak Spanish. She could have asked. Very seldom am I asked "Do you speak Spanish?" I am expected to speak Spanish. That kind of attitude does not foster friendship it seeds animosity. It is not to keep out bad Hispanic people that the Mexican wall is being built, it is to stop Hispanic people, good and bad. Let's get real on that.
To combat the Hispanic Xenophobia I was seeing, I started my abrazame campaign, hugging 100's of strangers, hoping it would catch on. It was a great experience for me. I realized how loving our Hispanic population is.
When we have demonstrations now, there is always a Cuban for Trump that shows up. That galls me to no end. Why should I stand up for Hispanic immigrants if many Cubans won't? When I went to Westchester during the election there were Trump supporters everywhere. Why do they hate their own kind? Why can't they want the same opportunities they had for their fellow man? Why do they want these Hispanics deported?
All of a sudden all our Cuban representatives to congress are mute on the change in Cuban policy. They used to yell to the rooftops, what happened? Cuban Senator Marco Rubio has gone on a crusade against Hispanics entering the country. The White Supremacist publication the Daily Stormer calls Marco Rubio a Scumbag and a Spic. Exactly what is he doing? Where is his motivation coming from? Not his soul. I feel like he has sold his soul to the devil.
Here is what I don't understand, I get an email every day from a Democrat telling me to ask Marco Rubio for something. That's a fools errand. He has never done a vote I ever agreed with. Do they think he will change now? He is not even playing to his base. He has jumped on the Xenophobic Trump Train and is not getting off until some other Republican stand up to the crazy president. If you want something from Marco Rubio write to Norman Braman.
Anyway, the United States is fucked.
