3. Racism, Xenophobia, Fascism: American Politics.
This week, the U.S. reached a new low when we allowed a frontrunner for the Republican party in the race for the Presidency to make public his idea that the nation should temporarily bar all Muslims from entrance to the States regardless of circumstance. Babbling nonsense is nothing new for Donny J., but this time even his right-wing cohorts were like, “Yo, that’s dumb.” If nothing else, it’s nice to hear that most commentators are able to hear this man’s statement for what it is: Islamophobia, xenophobia, fascism, and plain old racism. He really managed to pack a whole lot of nutrients in that garbage smoothie of his. Can somebody get this guy a free boost (out of country)??? P.S., on our Facebook page, we asked y’all of you thought this was a feminist issue; most of you said yes, a few of you were rather tentative. If you think more about it, we’d love to hear your thoughts.
