Here’s the thing when it comes to Donald Trump’s recent racist behavior — we’ve known damn good and well, since way back in the 80s, that Donald Trump is a bigoted piece of human garbage, not worth so much as the day-old gum that sticks to the bottom of your shoe.
He’s trash, plain and simple. It’s no secret. It’s not something that’s talked about in hushed tones and hidden deep in a trashy magazine that no one ever reads or believes. It’s just fact.
And that fact alone is bad enough for an entire lifetime.
But what takes Trump’s racism and makes it all the worse is the platform and authority he now has to put action to that racism.
He’s no longer a reality TV washup. He’s no longer a shitty real estate mogul in New York, riding daddy’s coattails and bank account all the way to multiple bankruptcies.
The dude is literally the President of the United States now. And not only is he using his newest position of power to peddle his racism, but he’s also making a f*cking show out of it.
You could call George Floyd’s recent murder in the streets of Minneapolis at the hands of a white police officer the proverbial “straw that broke the camel’s back” for people of color and their allies all across this nation. Since his death, members of the Black Lives Matter movement have taken to the streets from West Coast to East, protesting the police brutality that took Floyd’s life.
All while Donald Trump has taken to Twitter, making it even more clear that he’s a racist piece of shit with far too much power at his fingertips.
And unsurprisingly so, all his little GOP minions are following suit.
As a response to the protests, Trump recently declared that ANTIFA will now be labeled as a terrorist group. And according to Republican Representative Matt Gaetz, that should be an open invitation to hunt them down to kill.
“Now that we clearly see Antifa as terrorists, can we hunt them down like we do those in the Middle East?” Gaetz wrote on Twitter this afternoon.

If that’s not a prime example of asking if we can now murder ANTIFA members, then I don’t know what is.
Twitter users seemed to agree with me:
Reprted his tweet. Another member of the @gop out here actively trying to get people killed.

You’re psychotic. It’s like you and Tom Cotton are competing for this year‘s Dick Cheney Award.

Holy shit- did you really just advocate for the extrajudicial killing of your fellow Americans?

To speak of “hunting down” after a Black American men was hunted down, held down, and had the life choked out of him is inflammatory and racist.

Republicans are now literally chomping at the bit to execute us all.
That’s America now. Trump’s America.
