And the Trump Effect continues, this time with fatal consequences. It is comical that many claim President Obama was a divisive president. The hate Trump has generated I do not think has been seen since the 1960s. We better nip this cancer in the butt sooner rather than later.
The Trump Effect is in full swing
The results of the Trump Effect is starting to escalate. Now it has turned into murder. Ironically the killer likely murdered the wrong target.
The New York Daily reported the following.
James Saylor allegedly had already cracked off a shot from his .45-caliber handgun, the bullet ricocheting off the Red Rose's exterior, when Chad Merrill appeared at the driver's side window of his truck. "He was literally two feet from the vehicle," Hellam Township Police Chief Doug Pollock said of Merrill.
Saylor, 24, had been inside the Red Rose Restaurant and Lounge early Saturday morning, allegedly harassing a black patron, Jerrell Douglas. Merrill had come to Douglas' defense and the bar's owner eventually threw Saylor out. With Merrill, 25, at his window, Saylor shot him once in the chest, police say. He then hit the gas, smashed into a car in the parking lot along Lincoln Highway in Hellam Township, and drove off, Pollock said.
The police subsequently arrested Saylor at his parents' home. He lived in their basement. Witnesses said that Merrill likely went outside as a peacemaker but instead was fatally shot by Saylor.
The cancer of racism, now in a very open form, is sweeping western countries. What many fail to see is the complicity of the Plutocracy's involvement in all of this. Unfettered Capitalism as we know it is failing. It's extractive nature, and its promotion of wealth disparity and inequality has now hit enough of the majority population that they need scapegoats to ensure that most westerners are unable to see the system as the root of the problem lest the pitchforks come out. Many in power create the false narrative of an immigration problem that is materially hurting the 'natives' of these countries.
Until we get a deep understanding of the manipulation that is occurring throughout the western countries, we will fail to solve the problem. More must speak up and enlighten those unfettered capitalism has left behind them. Only when we defeat the real enemy will we fix the problems of poor and middle-class America.
