On July 4th, 2020, U.S. President Donald J. Trump made the false accusation that Anarchists, Marxists, Black Lives Matter Activists and others who fight for social justice causes and Racial Equality in Amerika are Clueless. I now speak directly to President Trump and his bigoted buddy Steven Miller.
When your hate speech motivated a white man to murder innocent worshippers at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. WE WERE NOT CLUELESS!!
When you ordered ICE and the Department of Homeland Security to hunt down undocumented workers like they were dogs, when you caged their children and destroyed our families: WE WERE NOT CLUELESS!
When you launched a Nation-wide hate campaign against the LGBTQ community and when our Transgender Sisters of Color were murdered in the streets. WE WERE NOT CLUELESS!
When you ordered U.S. soldiers to attack peaceful protesters so you could pontificate and pander to your base. WE WERE NOT CLUELESS!!
And when you continued to ignore the humanity of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, and Elijah McClain–when you lied about this deadly pandemic which is ravaging our people; WE CERTAINLY WERE NOT CLUELESS!
