Trump is the Grinch who stole America

Racism is the lowest, most crudely primitive form of collectivism. –Ayn Rand

With his s***hole comments and preference for white people immigrating from Europe, Donald Trump has demonstrated beyond any doubt that he is a racist. Trump is one of those “I am not a racist” racists. (These and other recent comments and tweets are further proof that Trump has some kind of mental disorder.)

All those who are defending and making excuses for Trump’s racist comments are themselves closet racists. They see themselves in Trump and therefore have to defend and make excuses for him (and themselves).

Racism equals bullyism.

Most racists, like Trump, don’t think they are, but let their white sisters or daughters date a black man and they will soon reveal themselves for what they are.

Recently I found at our library a fantastic documentary film based on James Baldwin’s unfinished book “I Am Not Your Negro”. Trump and all other racists should be made to watch this film everyday for the rest of their lives.

Trump is the Grinch who stole America and in the process has made us the laughing stock of the world.
