How Donald Trump Is Becoming the New Whipping Boy for Society’s Problems

Written by Candace Hardin on March 15, 2016

This weekend was the scene of much violence and impassioned rhetoric involving the presidential campaigns.

The Trump rally in Chicago was canceled due to the possibility of, and later, real incidents of violence.

In another part of the country, two young men were assaulted by an alleged Trump supporter, simply because they were “brown.”

One was a Muslim and one was Hispanic, both are students attending Wichita State University in Kansas.

The said attacker had berated an African American male first, then turned his attention to the two young “brown” men as they exited a convenience store. According to the victims, he turned violent, and beat the Hispanic male while yelling out Trump’s name.

The young Muslim man later complains that he was asked on another occasion if he had a “Muslim” card, so we can tell if he is good or bad.

The CAIR board in Kansas calls for Trump to renounce this hate crime.

The new consensus is that Trump is to blame because he called for a halt to Syrian refugees as there was no sure way to vet them for safety.

Trump is a supposed madman for suggesting the exact same thing that Jimmy Carter did during the Iranian Hostage Crisis where he stopped Iranians from coming into the USA.

No one should be hurt for who they are or where they came from, but, if CAIR wants to find someone to point a finger at for poor relations between Muslims and people in the USA, they should take it all the way back to 9/11/2001, then again to 9/11/2012, then to the couple who killed all those people in San Bernardino, CA, and we mustn’t forget the Boston Marathon bombers , to name a few.

A protester who tried to rush Trump onstage has had a great deal of experience in anti-American unrest.

He was involved in flag burnings of both the American flag and the Confederate flag. He has been involved in anti-racism rallies as well.

Americans have the right to peacefully assemble, to protest, to exercise their First Amendment Rights, unless you disagree with left leaning ideas or are Donald Trump.
Even Cruz and Rubio jumped on the “no rights for you” bandwagon. They seem to feel that Trump has no right to his opinion or to have public gatherings. They blame his words and opinions for inciting the masses.

Instead of trying to bolster their position by stepping on Trump’s neck, they should have defended his Constitutional Rights. They are supposed to be Senators, publicly elected defenders of the Constitution. This would have been a good time to show their understanding of that which they swore to defend.

Is it possible that those who are afraid of Trump are organizing this type of violence? Trump will most likely shut down a great many of the takers in government and the people’s gravy train of filling their pockets or receiving their dole. That frightens the devil out of those in government who have enjoyed the buffet on the taxpayer’s dime.

Or is it possible that we now have an adult populace that throws two year old temper tantrums when they don’t get their way or are thwarted in their desires?

If jobs come back with Trump’s leadership, what will be the excuse to sit home, procreate and live off the government? Imagine these 20-somethings-on-the-dole’s chagrin when their hands are called into the work rolls.

As it has been said, “those who do not work, shall not eat.” Trump, as president, would definitely schedule a rude awakening in their freebie world.
If Trump is to be the new whipping boy for the woes of the world, perhaps the left, the current administration and the media can give George W. a rest for a while.

It is sickening to see a day in the USA when peaceful assembly turns to riot because of different ideology. Whatever happened to agree to disagree?

Everyone needs to grow up and realize that just because their mother calls them son, that the world does not revolve around them!
