The Pledge of Allegiance in Trumpland

Given the national controversy over the #Takeaknee movement and “the Donald’s” reaction to it, this seems like a good time to remind all Americans what the Pledge of Allegiance might look like in an idealized version of Trumpland.

History Is Not There To Be Liked: On Historical Memory, Real and Fake – Foreign Policy Research Institute

NOTE: This is a shared article from the Foreign Policy Research Institute. I am not the author.

 

My grandmother had an excellent memory. We would sit at her kitchen table in Montreal, in the home my mother grew up in, and she would describe her childhood in Poland 70 years earlier. She lived in Gorzków, 50 miles from the Ukraine border, and her father owned a lumberyard in Krasnobród. He traveled there each week by horse and buggy, passing the goyische cemetery on his way. Non-Jews lived on the outskirts of Gorzków; Jewish families lived around the main square. It was a bustling place, my grandmother recalled. “It was a city!” she said.

Dearest Donald: With A Friend Like Me, Who Needs Enemies?

Anyone that doubts that “the Donald” could have been so easily manipulated by the Russians should check out this email.  I have not been shy in expressing my disdain for Mr. Trump and everything that he represents.  If he is going to invite me into his inner circle, who would he exclude?*

*Other than the obvious:  women that don’t like being groped, people that are not white, people that were not born in the United States, people that were born in the United States but don’t look, think, or act the way that Führer Trump thinks people born in the United States should look, think, and act, people that don’t pretend to be good Christians, people that take the central message of Jesus too seriously, people that don’t speak English, people that prefer real facts over “alternative” facts, and anybody that criticizes Führer Trump for any reason.
