WHEN ONE CRITIQUES THE US WITH VITRIOL PLEASE PAUSE AND THINK ON THE STORY BELOW. I AM GUILTY OF GREAT ANGER TOWARDS THE RIGHT WING EXTREMIST NATIONALISTS THAT SAW FIT TO PUT A MENTALLY SICK MAN TRUMP IN THE MOST POWERFUL POSITION ON EARTH. STILL I AM MINDFUL ESPECIALLY WHEN STORIES LIKE THE ONE LINKED BELOW SHOUT THAT HOWEVER MUCH WE CRITIQUE THIS NATION WE ARE LIGHT YEARS FREER AND MORE OBSERVANT OF THE RULE OF LAW THAN MANY OTHER NATIONS OF THIS EARTH. THE STORY BELOW IS BONE CHILLING ESPECIALLY WHEN WE KNOW MANY OF THOSE IN THE ALT RIGHT MOVEMENT OCCUPY A SPOT IN THE TRUMP WHITE HOUSE AND SHARE THE SAME VIEW AS THE CHECHENS. WE AGAIN MUST RESIST!
