From an article yet to be published – Too much has been coopted by the conservatives of this country, too many inherently American values have been forcibly taken by the conservative wing of our political body in order to be used to push their partisan agenda that first and foremost benefits the elites, and secondly preys on the good nature of American citizens in order to convince them that the they have the truest claim to the identity of that of a true American. They talk of American values, and our cherished constitution – yet they trample them through voter suppression, gerrymandering, and their obstructionist hardliner ways. They speak of family values, and morals yet the man they so callously back has been accused of numerous violations of any definition of moral goodness, a man who has professed heresies that are antithesis to their supposed Christian values.
The rights co-opting of our values, traditions and institutions MUST END.
- None for this evening.
