Trump's America

              Trump’s America is a scary place. Innocent people are being called out and threatened all because of what religion they belong to or what race they are or the colour of their skin.

               Innocent men and women being killed and tormented all for the way they live their lives. Parents telling their daughters to take off the hijabs and to not wear them to protect them from the harassment. People throughout America are being harassed and because of this harassment they are forced to try and hide their religion.

               Just an example of what Trump’s America looks like, here is something that happened recently in New York.  In an article posted two weeks ago, it speaks about a subway car that was covered in Nazi symbolism. A resident of New York, Gregory Locke said he boarded the subway in Manhattan to see that every window and advertisement had a swastika drawn on them.

               Everyone on the subway car was uncomfortable and unsure of what to do, that is until one passenger got up and said “Hand sanitizer gets rid of Sharpie, we need Alcohol”.  Everyone on the subway car that night came together and within minutes the hateful graffiti was gone.

               One of the passengers said “I guess this is what Trump’s America looks like”.  This is sad, when you think about it a lot of the things that were said during the election by Donald Trump in one way or another been compared to somethings Adolf Hitler had said back in Nazi Germany. For Example:

 

Adolf Hitler                                                                                        

Ø  Used racism to rise to power                                                                     

Ø  Proposed mass deportations

Ø  Promised to make Germany great again

Ø  Anti-Jew Fascist

Ø  Blamed Jews for Germany’s problems

Ø  Thought Jews should wear special ID’s

 

             Donald Trump

Ø  Used racism to rise to power

Ø  Proposes mass deportations

Ø  Promises to make America great again

Ø  Anti-Muslim Fascist

Ø  Blames Immigrants for America’s problems

Ø  Thinks Muslims should wear special ID’s

 

     Trump’s America might look like this now, but if people, like those on the subway car come together and fight back against the hate and the harassment, then maybe things will get better.
