Where is President Obama and other national leaders when we need them? Where is someone to refute the neo-Nazi lies of President Donald Trump, who no longer has to brag that he can shoot someone on Fifth Avenue, because his followers and those who believe his lies of Jewish conspiracies and immigrant invasions are carrying out the mass shootings and violence for him; with the Pittsburgh Tree of Life Synagogue shooter and Florida bomber the latest examples?
Any national leader’s voice will do, as this is happening because Donald Trump has been inciting his followers to avoid impeachment from a Democratic-elected congress in the upcoming November election.
Are there not even voices from his own Republican Party who will stand up to his relentless incitements of age-old fears?
It will take a clarion call from a moral national leader to refute the lies that there is an “invasion” of several thousand Central Americans seeking asylum from their own country’s violence, and who are about to overwhelm 325 million American citizens. There is no invasion of immigrants, as even a Fox News host has said.
The number of mass shootings around the country in 2018 continues to climb. According to data from the Gun Violence Archive, a total of 293 mass shooting incidents have occurred as of October 27.
Saturday’s mass shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, with ‘multiple casualties’ and multiple officers injured, marks the 294th mass shooting. In 2017, the U.S. saw a total of 346 mass shootings.
Where are our national leaders, including past presidents, who still believe in the rule of law and want to stop this President’s call to violence, a man who will do and say anything to stay in power?
