Such a Great Country, Such Nasty Bigotry

“Such a great country that allows you to be here.”

That is racism and it is an implied threat. Think about the sheer audacity of Mr. Spicer to say that to my face with a smile, knowing that he that he is being recorded on video and the position of power he holds in our government.

“Such a great country that allows you to be here.”

I am still stunned by the boldness of having my citizenship threatened on camera.

“Such a great country that allows you to be here.”

It’s one thing to have a Twitter egg tell say you do not belong in America, it is quite another to have the Press Secretary to the President of the United States of America do so. I am still astounded. And while I am fearless, I wonder how this administration will use its power to silence ordinary people like me.

There are many ways you can get involved here are few ways to get started with your advocacy.

1) Put the Congressional Switchboard line in your phone book 202–224–3121. You can call the switchboard any time the Trump administration does something to curtail our rights. Be sure to speak to both your Senators and your Representative.
