Each week, LA Progressive’s editors pick what they regard as a particularly insightful comment from one of our readers, both to draw attention to one particular reader’s thoughts and to encourage more readers to weigh in with their opinions. This week’s pithy “Feedback Friday” response comes from Wes Barnard, who commented on the article by Harvey Wasserman, ““Immigrants & Muslims Are Trump’s Jews….”
I have always wondered what it must have been like in Nazi Germany or the implosion of the Roman Empire. Today, we have a ringside seat, witnessing the implosion of the United States of America. The American people are beginning to realize that if they do not act, this nation will become another Nazi Germany. Indeed, some feel it is already too late.
Nevertheless, I was delighted to see so many fair-minded White Americans get off their asses and actually go to the border and protest the insanity of this evil government. I just hope they do not go home and think they have won something. They have not. Trump is appeasing the uproar of the people, hoping they will go back to sleep, while he and his cronies “drain the Treasury”.
Societies rot and decline when their foundations are weak and this nation’s foundations were weak from the very beginning. This land was taken by force from the indigenous people, this nation was built on the backs of enslaved Black people and for the past 75 years or so, these thieves have been fighting to hold onto their ill gotten gains.
The manic effort to “Americanize” everyone is the surest indication this ‘house of cards’ is in free fall. I guess all I can add is: “Fasten your seat belts, we are in for a very bumpy ride.” The good people will survive, but the wicked will perish and not a moment too soon. Respect.
