The Clear Difference

The heckler at the Bernie Sanders rally at the University of Massachusetts on January second wore a Trump shirt, and held a sign that said “Obama is as Christian as Bruce Jenner is a woman.”

Bernie noted, “Here’s a Trump supporter worried about Mr. Trump’s money… I say to Mr. Trump and his supporters that the billionaires of this country will not continue to own this nation.”

The crowd responded by chanting, “Bernie, Bernie!” as the man was escorted peacefully out of the facility.

What happens when someone protests a Trump Rally?

Trump supporters say “Shoot him!” “Kick his ass,” and “Light the motherfucker on fire!”

There’s your clear difference between two groups of Americans.

One group represents our better nature. They value democracy and government of, by, and for the people.

Then there are the far Right, neo-fascist, Republican con-servatves wanting a belligerent bigoted billionaire to lead our nation.

Thankfully polls show Bernie winning a contest between the two. No matter who wins the nominations, the election will still essentially be between these two factions.

Sadly, if Bernie isn't nominated, our choice will be between two corporatist pawns of Wall Street and the Military Industrial/State Security Complex.

In other words, same old, same old.


This recent incident at a Vermont rally shows us what a thug Trump really is. And no matter what the Right says, he has a big fat "R" attached to his name. He is one of them to the core.

While hecklers are removed from all rallies, Trump reveals his true character in this act of a cruel bully.

“I thought I heard a little voice over there. Get him outta there! Don’t give him his coat. Keep his coat. Confiscate his coat. You know it’s about ten degrees below zero outside. No, you can keep his coat. Tell him we’ll send it to him in a couple of weeks.”

Since Nixon, American fascism has the letter, "R" all over it.
