A New Revolution?
What a Trump Presidency Will Look Like
Plain and simple, the people are tired of Donald Trump. The whole country witnessed the frustrations of the people take place in Chicago a few days ago. Thousands of protesters crashed the rally, forcing Trump to cancel his appearance. The country saw people come together to stand up against a man who has spewed hateful rhetoric throughout his campaign and encouraged physical harm to anyone who questioned his authority.
Political analysts, politicians, and journalists called the protesters thugs, troublemakers, people who violated Trump’s freedom of speech. Ben Carson even claimed the protesters were in the wrong for violating the first amendment.
“The problem is that there are those who are being taught that if someone disagrees with you, you have the right to interfere with their First Amendment rights, their ability to express themselves, their freedom of speech”-Ben Carson
For a world famous neurosurgeon, Carson lacks common sense. Everyone is entitled to the freedom of speech, the protesters were exercising their right to assemble and protest. Carson is contradicting himself, during the Chicago rally, Trump supporters were the ones attacking protesters. It’s on record that people who have spoken against Trump have been assaulted at his rallies. There is video proof of Trump blatantly telling his supporters to knock down anyone who challenges his ideals.
Are you starting to see the trend here? People that have made statements like Carson are hypocrites. So how are protesters the thugs? Just because they disagree with Trump and acted within their rights as Americans makes them wrong for speaking out? How Trump’s supporters “right” when they are the ones assaulting individuals exercising his or her freedom of speech?
We have seen this trend happen around the world throughout history. People standing up against tyrants, oppressive governments, and unjust laws. The United States wouldn’t be like it is today without the men and women that stood up against British rule back in the 1700s. Segregation does not exist today because men like Martin Luther King took the initiative to challenge authority. These are periods in American history when people had enough, they protested and fought back. Like the protest in Chicago, the people had enough, protested and fought back.
A Trump presidency will set forth a new revolution of people fighting against tyranny. It is a scary thought that the United States may be torn apart because of one’s man fascist campaign. Wake up America, vote for a leader, not a tyrant.
