Stevens was reacting to Trump’s attack on the Muslim American parents who spoke at the DNC about their son, who died serving in Iraq.
Khizr Khan, the grieving father, spoke emotionally about the loss of his son. Sane people everywhere were moved to tears by his words, which included a forceful admonishment for the rabidly anti-Muslim Trump:
You have sacrificed nothing and no one.
Donald can’t tolerate criticism, as we know. His deep narcissistic wound triggers a disproportionate burst of rage whenever he perceives a slight.
So Donald lashed out at Mr. Khan, and then attacked Khan’s wife Ghazala for her silence onstage.
Mrs. Khan is a grieving mother who still falls apart when she talks about her son.
She shouldn’t have to defend her silence, but she did, in an interview on MSNBC, explaining:
I was very nervous because I cannot see my son’s picture, and I cannot even come in the room where his pictures are. And that’s why. I saw the picture [behind] my back, I couldn’t take it and I controlled myself at that time.
Today, in response to chickenhawk Trump’s attack and his ludicrous list of his own ‘sacrifices,’ Mr. Khan said:
That is typical of a person without a soul, without empathy…
Exactly! Donald Trump is just a despicable piece of shit, his politics aside. He is an embarrassment to mankind, for fuck sake.
No one needs to confront him with the famous words addressed to Joseph McCarthy “Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last?” because the answer is so obviously “No.”
I think it is normal and rational to squirm in agony when you watch the clip below. But I also think we must bear witness to the horrible, indefensible immorality of the Republican party for running this cunt for President. Shame on them all.
