Ivanka Trump had her clothing line and life’s work, through no fault of her own, removed from department stores like Macy’s and Nordstrom’s for no other reason than bearing her father’s name. Snoop Dog released a video portraying an assassination of the President, while his nephew lil “Bow Wow” tweeted his desire to “Pimp Out” Melania – the First Lady, mind you – without one retail chain removing their CD’s or images. Even worse, not a single mainstream news outlet, celebrity activist or “feminist” group condemned their despicable, misogynistic behavior or demanded a march of solidarity! This is why America is so irrevocably broken and in the midst of a final countdown to self-destruct along political, racial and socio-economic lines. Right and wrong, public outrage, is no longer a matter of simple ethics, basic decency, but rather a social construct increasingly dependent upon political preference born from juvenile spite. And yet “We the People” wonder why so many crimes by illegal immigrants go unpunished or hyper-partisan judges invent or ignore the law – a Chief Executive’s legal right to restrict immigration from volatile nations like his unopposed predecessors – based solely on their obstinate personal beliefs. If a country singer pretended to murder Obama as a form of artistic expression and voiced a smug desire to turn Michelle into a corner prostitute, nearly every retail outlet or concert venue would reject their business amidst mass protests…and rightfully so.
When paranoid rhetoric makes it perfectly acceptable to riot, destroy private property and assault innocent bystanders on the street over the democratic election of a President maliciously demonized by the press, but holding peaceful rallies in support of the Constitution and your native country is discriminatory, insensitive and a form of racial supremacy – despite embracing fellow concerned citizens from all walks of life – the delineation between logic and triggered lunacy is a chalk outline of an offensive smoking gun. Regardless of your sensitivities and homicidal aspirations, your creed, color or undeclared gender should be equally irrelevant in the crosshairs of consequence. Until objectivity and common sense once again rule the day to restore accountability as a universal concept and human necessity, if only to remedy our most egregious contradictions and moral failings, America is nothing more than a Banana Republic plagued by petulant children throwing tantrums until their political victims are someday as disposable as their soiled diapers.
