All the Trump voters, including but not limited to, evangelists

Who voted for Trump because their pastors told them to, bear some responsibility for putting him in power.

Of course there was plenty of racism before Trump, but him being in a position of power helps to embolden some people To perform such atrocious acts.

1. Apparently, the one about not lying has been repealed from the 10 Commandments.

5. I am 50ish and the entirety of christianity has changed in this country dramatically

In my childhood, it was personal responsibility, being kind to others and living a good life.

Today, it is liberal bad/conservative good, and victimhood.

8. Same here, at 71.

The key elements I recall are humility, tolerance, charity and doing no harm to others.

Although no longer a church-goer, I keep wondering when the all new Bible was published.

I must have missed that announcement......

9. Have you actually read the Bible?

They didn't have to publish any "new and improved" edition. The bad stuff was always in there.

11. That was a pun. I was raised neck-deep in Biblical teachings.

Even had to memorize the names of all the books as a kid.......

2. They are proud

You underestimate the depravity of the average trump supporter. Today, they are happy and proud because yesterday their President threatened violence and today on the other side of the world his devotees carried out on that threat.

This is a great and proud day for Trump supporters. I'll be surprised if they can contain their gloating.

4. The rich corporate, trust funders are building a monster to deflect the masses from their theft.

Trump is building a following all over the world. He is nothing short of a monster. He is a very dangerous man. Even if removed from office, his hate, racism and deadly demands for white supremacy can morph into even more atrocities.

The uber rich 1% created him specifically to do this. Now, everyone is fighting off mass racism and deadly hate instead of getting rid of capitalism, corruption and oligarchs. It is all due to the fact that we allow the uber rich to get and keep the wealth equivalent of a small country. Without that wealth, they couldn't do this. Without the wealth Trump's father was able to pass on to his crazy son, we wouldn't be fighting the hate of WWII all over again.

The uber rich capitalist kings created Hitler AND now they created Trump.

10. And, they cleverly stay invisible.

They don't care how they divide and distract us so long as we're not focusing on their evil.

Trump, much of the GOP and Faux News yappers are just puppets.......

Well paid puppets, I might add......

13. Trump "emboldened" the Nazis

Trump "emboldened" the Nazis

America fought a war against the Nazis and supposedly won.

Yet here they are marching to "take back America".

When did the Nazis have America?

" Michael Von Kotch, a Pennsylvania resident who called himself a Nazi, said the rally made him "proud to be white."

He said that he's long held white supremacist views and that Trump's election has "emboldened" him and the members of his own Nazi group. "
