This morning on my phone news, I read of a woman who lost her brother and sister-in-law to the hateful shooting in El Paso.

It truly never occured to me that anyone who lost someone to one of these hateful trajedies, would actually back and welcome Trump today. 

 


To that woman, you have got to be kidding me. If she saw him robbing the Poor Box. she would probably rub her eyes and say to herself, "I can't believe my lying eyes."

I can understand her anger. I also understand when we are faced with horrific and murderous occurences, there is a tendency to find a villian to blame and a hero to save. I don't know if I could look upon someone as a hero when it's been their words and their actions that were the catalyst for the crime. 

 

I make no secret of my dislike for trump & company. He's simply not capable of being anything more than a spoiled ill-behaved child.

I just read her Facebook page (Vibora Anchando - Deborah). She posted the story on her Home Page.

She focused on two politicians who didn't want Trump to visit El Paso. She was angry about that and specifically at those two politicians. She refused to mention the two politicians by name. I guess we can assume they were both Democrats.

The way she posted it on Facebook, she avoided using the word Democrats.

She's angry at the two because she was looking forward to hearing what the president would say.

Would this be similar to the Stockholm syndrome? Falling in love with your captors. Or following jim jones to Guyana for the kool aid festival. Or cheering for someone who just robbed or sexually assaulted you?

Count me as perplexed, this behavior is just bizarre!

Trump has done more to inflict pain and suffering on non-white people than any American President, so OF COURSE loyal Republicans, who gave up their morals when they followed Nixon into the Southern Strategy over 50 years ago, will cheer when Bonespur's hateful rhetoric causes the death of 31 people in the name of racial clensing.

Her race was not mentioned, or at least I did not see that it was.
