I read a story today that I haven’t seen covered in any news outlet. An 8-year-old girl ran to her mother recently terrified of something she saw on the news:
Sofia had been watching the news with her grandmother, when she heard about Donald Trump’s call to deport refugees and ban Muslims from entering America.
“She ran to me with a look of absolute fear on her face,” Melissa told Upworthy.
Sofia, who is 8 years old, was convinced that Trump wanted to kick her and her family, who are Muslim — and American citizens — out of the country.
Sofia’s mom was understandably upset, and posted her frustration on her Facebook page a few days ago.
The Twitter hashtag #IWillProtectYou was created just for this, and many veterans, including myself, have made the pledge to Sofia – and every child – that they would be protected.
Because no child should be scared that it’s government will imprison, discriminate against them, or deprive hem of their rights, no matter what God they worship – or don’t.
Because every child deserves a childhood free from fear that some megalomaniacal, narcissistic dick weasel, who bought himself a country, will boot them from their home.
Because no child should fear government force.
Because we – as service members – swore an oath to protect this nation and her Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic, and that includes the aforementioned megalomaniacal, narcissistic dick weasels who want to turn this nation into a fascist shithole.
Because we – as service members – understand the true meaning of honor.
Because we – as service members – protect the innocent. It’s what we do.
Because we – as service members – will not stand idly by and allow those smaller and weaker than us to be abused by those in power.
Because we – as service members – are sheepdogs.
And because I truly believe that those of us who made the commitment to serve will not obey the orders of a sad, bigoted, narcissist, who doesn’t give a rat’s flying fuck about America, and who is obviously compensating for his inadequate genitalia by buying himself a country – even if the meathead contingency in this country is somehow stupid enough to place this leftist turd in sheep’s clothing in the White House.
And I hope my fellow vets will as well.
