Making America Great Again

President Donald Trump is a real American. If the rest of us were more like him, then our nation would finally attain a state of grace. America would indeed be great again.

So, what’s holding us back? If we could do just one thing to set things right, what would we do? Just ask President Trump. He’ll give you a simple, four-word answer: “Make America white again.”

It’s easy to see that President Donald Trump is a real American. He depends on his gut to tell him right from wrong. And since he’s always right, he never needs to apologize.

He knows who among us are real Americans. If you’re white – and not a progressive – then you’ll probably pass the test. It follows that we have to be very careful which immigrants we let into our growingly great country.

Moslems, Africans, and Mexicans – with the exception of perhaps a few good ones – are unwelcome because they’ll never become good Americans. But more Norwegian immigrants would be welcomed with open arms. Who is whiter than a Scandinavian?

It feels good to see everything in black and white – so to speak. White is right! By extension, people of color wrong for America.

When anyone persistently disagrees with our president, then that person is, by definition, a bad American. To remove this threat to our national purity, we must ask these dissenters to go back where they came from, especially if they happen to be women of color – and even if they were born here.

It is comforting to have a leader who is never wrong. Even when he is blatantly lying, he just doubles down. Alternate facts are created to support his argument. After all, our peerless leader, by definition, cannot be wrong.

What about his legions of followers? Are they as despicable as he is?

Many of them are. Or more charitably, they truly agree with him. But others observe, “Look, he’s just Trump being Trump.”

Eight and a half decades ago, another political leader set out to make his country great again through racial purification. As George Santayana said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
