We recently had a US president who wanted to retain his power by denying people's votes, saying voting results are fake unless he was a winner. He sent his private army to force representatives to overturn the election result in which he lost. He was a man who tried to become a dictator in a democratic nation.

This time a year ago he used the racist militia scum as his SS to infiltrate the George Floyd protests and stir up racial strife. And they were abducting bystanders - black and white, into unmarked cars to terrorize citizens in Portland and other West Coast cities. America had become as violent and under oppression as many other nations. And don't forget Trump's personality cult. He had plans to have all schools indoctrinate American children with the crap ideology and phony history about him being the 'Greatest'. Fortunately Joe abolished that executive order the first week he was in the WH.

Interesting how Cuban protesters are waving American flags, while American athletes and others are turning their backs to the American flag.

Trump advanced civil rights in the US and now libs who think they know what is best for others are doing their best to set back those advances.
