“Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses.” (Proverbs 10:12/ESV)
Trump claims his rallies are “love fests” and yet participants are best known for their hatred…for Muslims, China, Mexico, Illegal immigrants, Blacks, and all who would dare to oppose them!
When Birgit Peterson made a Heil Hitler salute for the cameras at this weekend’s cancelled Chicago Trump rally she said it was to call attention to accusations that her candidate is Hitleresque. Don’t forget that Hitler’s world wide power grab nearly succeeded after he incited, misdirected, and then abused the anger of the German people. Of course even he could not be blamed for all of the resultant destruction. His loyal followers were equally culpable.
When Donald Trump inspires his audiences to express hatred for China’s trade practices, Mexico’s refusal to control their half of our mutual border, and the Islamic religion, he is responsible for the destructive result. Last weekend that result was a very dangerous near riot, massive pepper spraying of crowds, bloodied protestors, and twenty five thousand bummed out Trump fans.
Despite all of Trump’s Primary wins I am not the slightest bit worried that he will become our nation’s President. I believe this because I know that 65% of Republican voters and 100% of the Democrats will never vote for him. I did not vote for him last Tuesday in my State’s Primary election, and I will not vote for him in November.
I am hopeful that Ted Cruz may still beat Donald Trump before July. If not, I will be OK with Hillary or Bernie for President…and that is a lot of hatred!
