Pittsburgh to Trump; "You're Not Welcome".

Recommended Posts

In the wake of eleven innocent lives taken at the hands of a Neo Nazi White Supremacist Pittsburg has a message for Donald Trump ...

 

 

Stay Away From Pittsburgh: 'You Are Not Welcome'

 

“President Trump, you are not welcome in Pittsburgh until you fully denounce white nationalism,” the leaders of the local chapter of Bend the Arc wrote, adding:

 

“For the past three years, your words and your policies have emboldened a growing white nationalist movement. You yourself called the murderer evil, but yesterday’s violence is the direct culmination of your influence.”

I didn't read the article because I have better things to do but whomever made the above statement is an imbecile.

Over nearly a century, Rose Mallinger saw the best and worst of America. Until Saturday.

 

The gunman aimed at pews filled with grayed heads and timeworn faces — faces that had lived through so much of the past — and fired, killing 11 congregants.

None had seen more than 97-year-old Rose Mallinger, whose 61-year-old daughter (injured but expected to recover) brought her to worship every Shabbat. ...

In the ten days after Trump was elected, there were more than 900 hate crimes against Muslims, people of color and Jews, and the Anti-Defamation League reported a 57 percent rise in anti-Semitic incidents — everything from bomb threats to vandalism — in the U.S. in 2017, compared to the year before. In February 2017, after Trump’s inauguration, more than 100 gravestones were vandalized at Jewish cemeteries outside Philadelphia and St. Louis, Mo. In Charlottesville, Va., six months later, skinheads and neo-Nazis held torches and chanted, “Jews will not replace us.”

“We all need to learn the lessons of history and stand up in our own time and our own lives,” said a statement of solidarity with Pittsburgh from the Chicago History Museum. In her 97 years, Rose Mallinger’s life was that history. She lived through times when her country did well by all the flavors in its melting pot, and through times when it did not.

She survived them all, until she didn’t.

The fact that you can't or refuse to see the truth in that statement might make you the imbecile, or worse.

It's a sad day when folks can't set aside their political differences long enough to pay respect to the dead.

 

Or postpone a political rally long enough to show the victims families a little respect.
