America: Filled with Haters. By Geniusofdespair

I really can't understand why people hate people that look different.  I do admit I sort of hate Kim Kardashian. I secretly want her to age badly. I know why I hate her, I always wanted to be pretty and have a great body. I am actually jealous of her because she has it and I don't.

But then there is the Whites hating Blacks, and the Whites hating Hispanics, and the Whites hating Jews and the Whites hating Gays...that I really don't get. Maybe because I personally don't hate any groups.

I don't think Whites hate Hispanics because they are jealous but I theorize it is because they will dilute the White race in the United States by their numbers.  Even though Donald Trump markets the Hispanics coming in as dangerous, talking about Hispanic gangs all the time, no one is really afraid of Hispanics.  He also calls them job thieves. They aren't taking the jobs that White Americans want. It is all a diversion that is more palatable than, we don't want you taking over our Nation with your numbers and inter-marrying with our lily white kids.

Donald Trump knows how to tap into fear and hate (besides knowing how to lie).

I was leaving Monty's with an unknown woman also leaving. About 7 people came towards us on those electric scooters. I said "Oh No" thinking, now the zany scooters will be traveling in packs. I was sort of amused as some of the people didn't seem steady on the scooters. The woman next to me said "Darwin." I thought, how odd. What did she mean by that? Then I realized all the people on the scooters were Black and she was referring to them negatively when they were just having fun. It upset me. I was concerned about the Scooter Craze and she was concerned with who was on the Scooters.

So, where am I going with this? I guess I am thinking that Donald Trump is making hatred towards others more acceptable. Instead of accepting the differences; whether people have a disability, a different color or a non-Norwegian look (i.e. they are Hispanic) Trump is making an issue out of it all. Even Democrats, I am so tired of his blaming Democrats for every crack in the sidewalk.  He governs Democrats as well as Republicans. He is treating North Koreans better than two thirds of United States' citizens. They are not some enemy, Donald, they just disagree with you and resent being lied to. It is okay for his two wives to emigrate into the United States and bring their families, but it is not okay for Jose or Maria to bring in their families. Too much hate. Too many lies.

In 1966 in South Africa, Robert Kennedy said:

Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.  and:
Hand in hand with freedom of speech goes the power to be heard, to share in the decisions of government which shape men's lives. Everything that makes man's life worthwhile-family, work, education, a place to rear one's children and a place to rest one's head -all this depends on decisions of government; all can be swept away by a government which does not heed the demands of its people. Therefore, the essential humanity of men can be protected and preserved only where government must answer-not just to the wealthy, not just to those of a particular religion, or a particular race, but to all its people.
 And the last word with John Oliver, regarding the Donald-Kim Summit and Trump's lies about it, and his sucking up:

Hate is a very strong word sometimes confused with jealousy or fear. You don't have to like someone to not hate them, they are just in middle, sort of a no-mans land. Trump lacks the essential leadership qualities needed to encourage self-thinking individuals to support him in just about anything he does. I do not hate him nor wish bad things on him but I don't like him either. I hope we have seen the light and correct this mistake by a landslide vote. I have said it before, maybe we needed Trump to show us how bad it can get when we become complacent.

Unfortunately, Trump using fear, hatred, and no sense of decency has a base of followers that blindly follow his lead. The constitution is not being followed by Trump, his minions, both chambers of congress. This has put our country in a crisis that hopefully will be defused by the majority of the voting citizens in the next election. If not, we are a country acting like and headed for the title of banana republic.

How exactly could JFK have been speaking in South Africa in 1966?

Feel it all slipping away? It's like he was never even here.

It is a fashionable, trendy thing to hate again thanks to Trump. It started with hating Muslims, and politicians banked on it and then doubled down until the sheeple started spewing all sort of hatred on the streets, at places of work, at dinner tables and with friends. A Jewish friend of mine started rubbing in my face every time I saw her that there will be a Muslim Holocaust soon and I responded that is fine because I am not a Muslim and she snapped it doesn't matter because I am Middle Eastern and no one would know the difference, soon after she stopped talking to me.

JFK was killed 11/22/63, how the hell was he making speeches in S. Africa?

Sorry wrong Kennedy, I made the correction it was his brother Robert.

And On the Darwin comment, my husband took it as I did. It was not about the vehicles. So go fuck yourself.

If you aspire to look like Kim Kardashian, you must be really ugly. I bet your husband probably wishes he wasn't married to an orangutan with down syndrome.

I needed to read the JFK speech again. It was refreshing. Unfortunately, we have a president who creates disaster after disaster. We don't have time nor can we afford all of these awful mistakes. We need all these immigrants to help fuel this economy. Without them we are going to have major economic problems. Look at the tariff situation with China. Who owns most of the paper for our enormous deficit? You guess it, China. What do you think would happen if they called in the debt? Understanding our position in the world is critical to our survival.

G.o.D, Given the choice of having a community of Kim Kardashians and a community of people like you, I'd choose you every time. This country's worship of celebrity over substance is what has gotten us into this nightmare. Your continued fighting the good fight makes you beautiful to me.

Ah, thank you. Usually I get nasty comments. Nice to get a good one.
