An open letter to Donald Trump from God

Had string of dreams last night of something God had brought to earth and I was involved with a number of other people and it was written down and I was having trouble remembering and putting it all together and collaborating with the other people. I understood on waking that it had to do with an open letter to Donald Trump that came my way on June 6 and I posted on Facebook, and since I'm still confused how to present it, I'm publishing the letter and all reader comments. I knew when I read the letter that it was from God. The scribe is a black British man. June 6, 1944 was D Day, World War II, when the Allied Forces stationed in England landed at Normandy to begin driving the Nazis out of France. Brits spell some words slightly differently. For example, they spell realize, realise.
This is just the beginning, I promise you: an open letter to Donald Trump
Liam Rosenior,
Dear President Trump,
I realise this is an extremely busy time for you between games of golf and tweeting but I hope you may be boosted by a rare and welcome thank you letter from a black man at such an inconvenient moment in the history of the United States of America.
While all of those “animals” are rioting and looting in the streets over something as petty and unimportant as justice and equal human rights for black people and who, for some ridiculous reason, seem to be upset at police “doing their jobs” by applying a little too much physical pressure in apprehending yet another black citizen who subsequently died in their custody – I realised no one has thanked you for the wonderful work you are doing.
Keep it up!
I’m sure a man of your vast intellect may think my sentiment is tinged with a hint of sarcasm but I can assure you my gratitude is genuine, for you have unwittingly become the most influential US president in the history of that great country for all the wrong reasons.
Thank you for being so open and forthright in your evil attitude and lack of care towards the black population you preside over.
Thank you for not pandering to the “politically correct” and even pretending you have any empathy towards anyone who doesn’t look like you or share your outdated, disgraceful, disturbing views on society.
Thank you for showing us anyone can become president (even you!) and showing us the way forward by (unintentionally) inspiring us to instigate lasting change, not just a peaceful protest backed up by empty clicks of support on social media. This is just the beginning. I promise you.
Thank you for shining a spotlight to people around the world who have been sadly unaware of your country and the state it has been in for hundreds of years, and for outing the racist, hateful, bigoted and violent people who not only voted for you but have held the cultural key to an unjust, corrupt and fundamentally prejudiced society and system from the conception of the USA, built on the genocide of Native Americans and the slavery and incarceration of millions of black people.
Thank you for giving us a tangible, symbolic enemy (yourself and your Make America Great Again minions) against which people now have fuel to organise, strategise and mobilise a long-lasting movement and process to change our planet for good.
These problems have been here throughout my lifetime and generations before me, and as a black man my biggest pain, anguish and dejection has come not only by witnessing these atrocities committed repeatedly against my people, but actually the lack of shock and vivid desensitisation built up over the years while hearing (and sadly believing) that “things won’t change”.
Before you, we had presidents who turned a blind eye to this, who didn’t do nearly enough and were too busy working to fulfil the wishes of corrupt corporations who had lobbied them into power. The difference is they were media savvy and clever enough to say the right thing in public and show just enough fake sympathy in response to these human rights violations to pacify the growing numbers of people who inherently knew there had to be change.
Through your open hatred, indifference and disregard towards a people subjugated by physical, economic, mental and emotional abuse for more than 400 years you have unwittingly created a movement where increasing numbers of people from all creeds and colours around the world are discussing and debating the most constructive way to fight back together. We now understand we have to fight this injustice on a systemic level; protests are not enough.
You are the wolf in wolf’s clothing we’ve needed for years rather than your predecessors who posed as sheep.
You are the reason why my daughters – who are US citizens – ask me: “Why does the president hate black people?”
You are the catalyst for our future generations to impact lasting change not only to your corroding country but countries all over the world, including here in the UK.
You truly mirror the views and ideology of a group of people we must and will overcome.
For that Mr President, I sincerely thank you.
Liam Rosenior
  • Brenda Garcia Our country has gone crazy. I have never in my 57 years seen anything like this. I hope for change but there is a right way and there is a wrong way. But when people are destroying other people's property that is just wrong and not the right way.
    • Sloan Bashinsky I recall reading in American history that the British were really upset about the Boston Tea Party.
    • Brenda Garcia Sloan Bashinsky I don't know it probably was. There's a lot that was in history but it happened before I was born or I was to little to remember. LOL
    • Victor Clarke Peacefully Taking a Knee didnt work Either

    • Sloan Bashinsky The Boston Tea Party was a political protest that occurred on December 16, 1773, at Griffin’s Wharf in Boston, Massachusetts. American colonists, frustrated and angry at Britain for imposing “taxation without representation,” dumped 342 chests of tea imported by the British East India Company into the harbor. The event was the first major act of defiance to British rule over the colonists. It showed Great Britain that Americans wouldn’t take taxation and tyranny sitting down, and rallied American patriots across the 13 colonies to fight for independence.

    • Brenda Garcia Sloan Bashinsky before I was born. Did they burn down buildings. And take things that did not belong to then. Or destroy other properties. It's okay to protest for change that's okay but to do harm and destroy other people's properties that is not okay that is wrong. Do no harm!!!!
    • Sloan Bashinsky Have you forgotten how many real Americans white fake Americans killed and stole land from? Have you forgotten the war fought to free Negro slaves from rich white plantation owners, and the lives lost and property damage on both sides?
    • Diane Zell Brenda Garcia you missed the 60s. What does it take to wake up!! Crazy!! We are tired of police brutality.
    • Brenda Garcia Diane Zell I don't give a shit and don't call me crazy. That does not give you the right to go around taking things from other people and destroying there property. It's not there fault. I was born in the 60's. Don't go around calling someone crazy because they can show you crazy.
    • Brenda Garcia First do no harm. That means physically and mentally.
    • Brenda Garcia Diane Zell Every one has an opinion you got yours and I've got mine. And opinions are like butt holes everyone's got one.
    • Sloan Bashinsky Actually, Brenda, I think it's worse than crazy to go around taking things from other people and destroying their property. I think it's the work of the Devil, because people know better than to do it, and they do it anyway. I wish now that I had not mentioned the Boston Tea Party and what was done to the Native Americans and then to African slaves. For those were not riots, at least not in the traditional sense. The Boston Tea Party was a political statement, no lives were at risk, only a lot of tea got dumped in Boston harbor. What was done to Native Americans and Africans in America was the work of the Devil. It heartens me to see so many Americans now "taking a knee" by peaceful public protests. That was Dr. Martin Luther King's way. I hope the peaceful protesters will express their rage and dismay at the ballot box in November, and I hope the rioters, looters and burners will get their bells rung. Karma has her own ways of doing business.
    • Victor Clarke If only the Scales of Justice were true measure .....But they’re not ......Politics and Religion control them Does Race, Money,and Military ....

    • Sloan Bashinsky Victor Clarke Looks to me that justice is pursuing the Minneapolis cops and cops who got out of line with Floyd protesters. We both watched Key West Police Department and the city mayor and commissioners circle the wagons and deny city police did not murder by smothering to death a white man on a city beach, whom the cops had wrongly profiled as homeless by living in his vehicle, which you well know is a vicious crime in that city. Brenda has spent some time in Key West. She has been homeless there, spent nights at the city's homeless shelter. She has seen and experienced things you and I know very well.

      In the Big Scheme, Lady Karma does have her say. Meanwhile, it looks to me this is yet another chance for America to draw a line in the sand against bad cops and their police benevolent unions and local officials who protect them, and this is a time take knees regardless of what President Trump or anybody else thinks about it. And, it's time to VOTE. What kind of creature would call out to George Floyd in heaven and hopes he he is happy with how the demonstrations in his name toned down and how well the American economy is doing? What about how Floyd's children feel about him being in heaven because of 4 really bad cops.

      I published the other day at my blog, and on Facebook, that if Trump invoked his supreme authority over everything (according to him) and had Homeland Security seize those 4 Minneapolis cops and put them in Guantanamo and they had to watch the New York times documentary video of Floyd being murdered by those cops every day for the rest of their lives, that would get law enforcement's undivided attention.

    • Sloan Bashinsky Brenda and Victor know I have a homeless amiga in Key West who has lots of creams and occasional visions, some of which i report at my blog. She told me this morning that she dreamed last night of President Trump holding up a Bible and his hand burned into the Bible. Then, she dreamed of Joe Biden holding up a newspaper before a smallish crowd in an auditorium and making his acceptance speech- he had won the election. She said that dream reminded her of President Truman holding up a newspaper saying he had lost, but the next day it turned out he had won. I said Trump thought he lost in 2016, but it turned out he won.
    • Victor Clarke Trump calling on George Floyd to look down
      The sign of a desperate imbecile trying to save his own useless ass appealing to “The better angels” of society to re-elect him
    • Iris Lewis Brenda Garcia there's no wrong way in the fight for change so desperately needed. Anger is expressed in many degrees! Change is desperately needed in the American Judicial system the wrong way is within the system not the protest for murder in your face to STOP.
    • Brenda Garcia SloanBashinsky. Yes she does I know there needs to be a change in the system for all people. I also know that the Native American and African American people got the wrong end of the deal. I'm the only white women that lives on this road. Our Government has to change the way that they treat people. But it is in God's hands. I believe that is the reason that all the things are happening. With the weather and everything else. I don't think God is very happy with the way people are acting with one another. Have a great day Sloan.
    • Sloan Bashinsky Brenda Garcia You had to drag God into this? That's not fair :-). Nobody can control God.
    • Brenda Garcia Sloan Bashinsky , I did because you said karma. Vengeance is God's. I do not like giving comments and now I know why just a bunch of bs.
    • Sloan Bashinsky Was teasing, Brenda, of course God has a hand in this, but seeing just how is a bit of a struggle. I told someone yesterday, that the pandemic and Floyd murder have brought out the very worse in America, have shown what it is made of, or not. And, there have been some places where the light shines through, and Trump has been trumped by something a bit bigger and willful than himself - finally. He can't fire and replace fate, karma, God.
  • Jim Tanner Wilmington, NC and Tulsa, OK, are two good examples of white mobs destroying black communities, murdering dozens in the process.
  • Jerry Reves Sloan, bravo for sharing this.
    • Sloan Bashinsky Thanks is owed to Liam Roesnior who looks to me is much closer to God than Trump and his supporters will remotely imagine in this lifetime.
