As the decks are being cleared to announce the GOP presidential nomination of Donald Trump for the November election, a movement that opposes Trump is silently building up under the “Dump Trump” campaign.
The organizers – who have preferred to stay behind the curtain – of #StopHateDumpTrump online campaign believe that Trump is a grave threat to democracy, freedom, human rights, equality, and the welfare of America and its people.
“We have witnessed Trump inciting hatred against Muslims, immigrants, women, the disabled. We have seen him evidencing dangerous tendencies that threaten the bedrock of democracy: unleashing a lynch mob mentality against protestors, calling for the expulsion of Muslims from the country, bullying, and fear-mongering,” proclaims the dedicated ‘Dump Trump’ website.
The website, which is urging people to add their signatures, has already collected more than 66,000 signatures against Trump.
The website also has reproduced Trump’s hate quotes, such as:
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending people that have lots of problems. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.”
“That’s one of the nice things. I mean, part of the beauty of me is that i’m very rich. That’s a huge advantage over the other candidates.”
“80% of all the shootings in new york city are blacks — if you add hispanics, that figure goes to 98%, 1% white.”
“…Laziness is a trait in blacks.”
Re: ISIS: “…I would just bomb those suckers, and that’s right, i’d blow up the pipes, i’d blow up the refineries, i’d blow up every single inch, there would be nothing left.”
With the help of a demo video, the ‘Dump Trump’ website suggests Trump to recycle his garbage (utterances) to say something better.
