Daily Random Shit for 2016-03-24My Post:This is NOT greatness in action. I know of only one conservative friend on FB who has spoken out against trump. I challenge all of you who have always believed in the GOP, the country needs to hear you disown this brand of hatred. This guy is not helping your party or where you believe the country should. The world thinks that we’re idiots because of this guy and he’s your party’s leading candidate. I challenge you to speak out against the hatred. We don’t need our own American Hitler.

Today I went to the Donald Trump rally here in Tucson out of sheer curiosity with three of my friends. The four of us went as neither supporters nor protestors, but merely bystanders. It was one of the scariest and most uncomfortable things we have ever experienced. I saw things that will be forever burned in my memory.
Multitudes of people were thrown out while Trump supporters yelled and booed at them, some with racial slurs, saying “fuck you”, “go back to Africa”, “go back to Mexico”, “get a fucking job”, the list goes on and giving them the middle finger. There were fights! Peaceful protesters were punched in the face! Every race was attacked by Jan Brewer, Joe Arpaio, and Trump himself. I was right in the middle of the freak show.
And on top of that, it was far from accessible for the disabled. Bernie’s rally in Tucson last night had an ENTIRE section reserved for the disabled and two ASL interpreters were provided. But Trump’s rally? Nothing. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Zero. Very telling.
My friends and I became so uncomfortable that we left a little early. We were mocked by people as we walked up the stairs through the crowd to leave (“goodbye!”, “go back to your mommy and daddy’s house”, etc). We all are white and did not have a sign or anything to indicate that we weren’t Trump’s supporters but I think the disgusted look on our faces gave us away.
I have never seen so much hate and ignorance in one room. It was just horrifying.
I am utterly scared shitless of America’s and our future.
Please, please, do not vote for this disgusting, vile human being (if you call that scum a human being).
[EDITED TO ADD: Ever since I posted about my simple yet honest experience at the Trump rally here in Tucson, I have received numerous hate messages from his supporters. I have already gotten a death threat. I have been called stupid, loser, idiot, and a liar (even though there are countless photos and videos that substantiate what I wrote). I have been accused of being paid to do this (lol, what?) and of being a Muslim (how is that an insult?). I’ve had to block numerous harassers already.
I debated taking down the post, then I thought… that’s exactly what they want me to do so I won’t.
All the name-calling just shows how intelligent (or the lack thereof) and ignorant some of the conservatives are. It also shows that they’re unable to effectively communicate as civilized adults. I guess with no logic and education, they have nothing else to turn to.
Trump has created a very toxic atmosphere with an entire army of over-entitled, angry, violent bigots. He needs to be stopped.]
Rick Krenz: I support Ted Cruz. I honestly believe that the United States is at a Constitutional crossroads. Trump says a lot of things which get his myrmidons fired up. (Don’t worry, they won’t know that I insulted them). A Trump Presidency would be a crazy, scary isolationist circus. Cruz wants a return to a Constitutional role of the Federal government. He wants Liberty and Freedom and Opportunity for all citizens. Trump scares me. Oh, and his wife takes a LOT of nude photos. Just sayin…
Joe Bustillos: Thanks Rick, you’re the one conservative friend who’s taken a stand again trump. I’m waiting for the others…
Rick Krenz: You may be waiting for some time. Trump struck a cord with some on the right with his non-PC discussions. But, if you take a good close look, he very rarely exceeds 35% in any caucus or Primary. His negative numbers are THROUGH THE ROOF with every demographic. Hence, my myrmidons statement. Have a Blessed Easter weekend! We are going to get another foot of snow! Gotta love life in the Rockies!
Joe Bustillos: You have to wonder how many of these Sunday Cowboys really have the “cajones” to defend this country (versus taking over undefended bird sanctuaries). Their man never served.
Enjoy the snow. We’re beginning our rainy season here in Central Florida (which will build up to hurricane season, ending in November … ). Sunshine state, my ass! That said, I love that this country has every possible climate and people who love where they’re from or where they’ve freely chosen to be.
Rick Krenz: Absolutely, Joe. Enjoy your liquid sunshine and I’ll enjoy mine frozen.
