Election ’20: America’s day of reckoning
Nov. 3, 2020, will be the ultimate moral reckoning for America. By now, it should be obvious to everyone that the President of the United States is a white supremacist who cares more about supporting the interest of Vladimir Putin and protecting statues of dead American traitors, than of uniting our country behind a common purpose.
With every tweet and atrocity, Trump hopes Americans grow fearful of each other, retreating from real political discourse and embracing a bizarre but familiar strand of white racial grievance. Trump stands against unity because he believes it stands in his way of victory.
We’re not deceived by Trump’s pretenses to piety. Our nation has seen and triumphed over his kind before. Trump is the heir of all the defeated, hateful and dangerous ideologies of the 19th and 20th centuries.
By sacrificing unity to serve his twisted and bankrupt vision, by abandoning every American and moral value except the will to power, Trump and his Republican enablers follow in the path of fascism, racism and totalitarianism. And on Nov. 3, they will follow that path all the way to where it ends: to America’s unmarked grave of discarded lies.
