Be careful what you wish for, I mean, Republicans had been sowing the seeds of racism, homophobia, paranoia, and fear for decades. Today, Donald Trump is just exploiting those same weaknesses and then some, i.e. Islamophobia, and Hispanophobia. C’mon, where was all this rage when Republicans were (and still) restricting women’s rights, or restricting millions of Americans the right to vote, or legislating on the side of Billionaires, or vilifying poor Americans, or the other insidious rhetoric or behavior aimed at Americans right here in America. Ok, I get it, anti-muslim rhetoric was the straw that broke the camel’s back, but I don’t get why the focus is only on Donald Trump. Republicans had shut down our Government because they kowtowed to extremists and we think Donald Trump is the only threat to our society. Conservatism beget Birtherism and now Birtherism beget Trumpism. For decades, Republicans and yes some Democrats had callously disregarded the lives of millions of Americans, because they kowtowed to the NRA. Listen, I know, we can’t go back and change history, but WTF, Trump speaks for the Republican Party. You and I know that Gerrymandering, Citizens United, and Voter Suppression are as odious as Trump’s anti-muslim rhetoric? Today, Republicans defend their strategy to exclude millions of Americans from participating in our elections, yet, they’re quick to say anti-muslim rhetoric isn’t conservatism. Republicans initiated anti-muslim rhetoric, they need to look in the mirror when they’re condemning Donald Trump. It’s obvious that Republicans are reaping what they’d sown.
