Words of a True Human being.
I met Isabel Cárdenas at a Church in Los Angeles less than a week ago. At first glance I could only notice her petite stature. But I, along with everyone else in the room, was awe-struck by her resolve for creating a better society for all of mankind. She is a National Co-Initiator and Steering Committee Member of RefuseFascism.org on top of being a Salvadoran-American Activist since 1960.
People like me are star struck by true human beings like Isabel. She amplifies Humanity by the simple actions she takes in the name of it. She asked me to post a piece of her written work, which states loudly and clearly her perspective on the current administration. And I happily agreed. So without further a due, here are the written words of Isabel Cárdenas.
On November 9, 2016 I imagined that just as I, millions of U.S. Citizens were stunned upon learning that Donald Trump was the President-Elect! Again, I thought angrily, our popular votes had been disrespected. How was it possible that a candidate — who during his campaign had been repudiated worldwide due to his fascist and racist behavior — plus having past sexual harassment charges — was now being imposed upon the U.S. citizens by the damned college electoral votes? It had been obvious that Trump was and still is following the same agenda as that of Adolf Hitler in Nazi Germany during the nineteen-thirties. In his campaign Donald Trump used manipulation, division, racism and worst of all, encouraged white supremacists to increase their hatred for other ethnic groups.
Trump says I am going to Make America Great Again meaning Make America White Again. Trump, his billionaire racist regime and white supremacists forget that because the Native Americans had no immigration laws, their ancestors were admitted into this land of ours as undocumented immigrants. They also forget that America is a Continent divided into two parts; North and South. Trump has a gall saying Make America Great Again when it is well known that the origins of the United States of America are built on the extermination of thousands of Native North Americans and the Slavery of our Black brothers and sisters’ ancestors for hundreds of years.
I thank God that the United States eventually became a country of nationals from around the world. It is such a pleasure hearing different languages around us and getting to know different cultures. If one were to compare the U.S. population to the various flowers that grow around the world, one would find it boring if these were just white and would greatly appreciate the difference it makes when a vase is full of flowers from the various range of colors that are seen in our gardens.
In less than 100 days, Donald Trump and the Billionaire racists with whom he has surrounded himself in the White House have proven that they are not the Government that we, in the old school days, were taught to be a Government by the People and for the people. This Regime is Illegitimate. It rests fundamentally on its fascist character. This is a regime pledged to demonizing all people of Muslim faith, reducing women to subservient appendages of men, repressing and crushing Black and Brown youth, tearing apart millions and millions of immigrant families, forcibly silencing all opposition even from within the ruling class — and brutally crushing any resistance from the masses… and being ready to go to — and perhaps over — the brink of nuclear war and environmental destruction.
Trump ordered that 59 Tomahawk Cruise Missiles be dropped against Syria. This action proves that what we can expect from this regime are incredibly greater levels of horror for ALL of humanity. This Regime may drive this country into a World War III due to its design on world domination and the use of nuclear weapons to get there. It is crucial that \all citizens who really love humanity join the various demonstrations that will be taking place this month of April and on May 1st. Find out the exact dates in your town/city and state. This Regime is Fascist, Racist and Illegitimate! We need to fill the streets with tens of millions of citizens demanding the following:
NO! NO! NO! IN THE NAME OF HUMANITY WE REFUSE TO ACCEPT A FASCIST U.S.A! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! DRIVE OUT THE TRUMP-PENCE REGIME!
¡NO! ¡NO! ¡NO! ¡EN NOMBRE DE LA HUMANIDAD RECHAZAMOS A UN ESTADOS UNIDOS FASCISTA! ¡BASTA YA! ¡SAQUEMOS AL RÉGIMEN DE TRUMP Y PENCE!
