Why The Wheels Have Fallen Off Our Cultural Bandwagon

Good Day World!

I really think more people ought to wake and bake before going out into public these days. 

It seems like everyone is ready to pick up their torches and pitchforks and to storm the norms in our society. 

Americans either see a blue sky, or a red one. Everything in between is smothered in the two divergent ideologies. 

We're entrenched in a war between liberals and conservatives seeking to smother moderates and convert them to their political agenda. No compromise. Only wins, or losses.

During the 20th century Americans still believed in diversity, proudly invoking the Statue of Liberty and these famous words..

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be free..." 

In the 21st century we have a president who would sexually harass the Statue of Liberty (if he could) saying...

"I don't even wait. And when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the pussy..."

Despite this shocking insight into who Trump really was, he was elected president. That's when the first wheel of the cultural bandwagon went flat.

The second wheel went flat when Trump tried to ban Muslims throughout the world from entering the US as immigrants.

The third wheel fell off after Trump stood up for Nazis, KKK members, and other hate groups in Charlottesville.

The fourth wheel went flat when the Trump administration separated immigrant families at the southern border as a draconian way of discouraging asylum seekers.

The results of Trump's influence on our society is shocking...

* The FBI's most recent data on hate crimes in 2017 show that they rose 12 percent over 2016 levels in 38 of the largest cities.

* There were 1,038 hate crimes in the nations largest cities - the highest in more than a decade.
