I would like to thank my friends who are having a peaceful press conference and protest and rally Saturday morning in response to Trump. The only thing that I would like to differ on with them is their using politicians to speak at the event who are there to promote their own agenda which is essentially promoting Hillary Clinton and getting themselves re-elected. As you all know I am a strong supporter of Sanders as well but…
Our protest to be held in the heat directly across from the Arizona State Fairgrounds at between 12:00pm and 5:00pm at 19thave and McDowell in Phoenix, Az June 18th, 2016 will be about human rights period. This is not about Congressional and city politicians trying to get themselves re-elected or about promoting Hillary … This is protest about LOVE and HUMAN RIGHTS and…NOT ABOUT HILLARY OR ANY OTHER POLITICIANS !
The other thing is the fact that apparently the Democratic party leadership of Arizona is quietly telling everybody not to protest at the Trump Rally on Saturday because it won’t be safe well… While I can understand where their coming from … It’s really tiring to see this repeated over and over by these so called progressive politicians who won’t even come to any of our human rights protests because they feel it is beneath them!
Please, we extend a loving invitation to all human beings who want to come out and show the national and world media that Arizona is not just made up all of bigots and xenophobes/ Neo-Fascists. So, if you are a congressional or city politician we welcome you to our peaceful love rally event to be held for all the world to see … Just make sure to leave your political promotional agenda back in the political arena. This is about human rights and is therefore not about politics.
Here is my response to possible government plants and pro-Trump elements and those who say stay away and hide from the Trump protest:
“History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.”- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Thank you to those who sincerely believe we should not protest Trump….But… while I respect your opinion… I do believe that you are unfortunately incorrect. But that is understandable. The Ol’ “We can’t give oxygen to the fire” cliche is only true when that applies unfortunately in this case we are the “Metaphorical fire fighters”
who by spreading the water of metaphorical love to fight the metaphorical fire of hate are trying to halt the burning down of civilization. If Trump were a nobody then we might agree but … Trump is not a nobody he is demagogue on the rise and… The old adage that “power flows into a vacuum” is so true in this case. Our community of love and humanity will be represented to not only the nation but the world on Saturday and … the power of one idea to that of another: “Love and Humanity or Ignorance and Hate.” People need to see that people in Arizona stand for Love and Humanity because … whether we like it or not: Love and Hate compete eternally… Martin Luther King was right when he said: “He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.”
