Throughout the disgusting political campaign of 2016, the Trump slogan MAGA has been his and his supporters rallying cry. The worthless US media, in their limited and profit-driven wisdom, normalizes it as just a slogan. But what would you expect? MAGA is simply a euphemism for MAKE AMERICA WHITE AGAIN (MAWA) and for ultra ignorant, racist American voter that is what made Trump their candidate.
Trump received sixty-plus million votes or approximately twenty-five percent of the voting-eligible population. (Clinton received twenty-eight percent). It is safe to say that many of Trump's suckers are challenged in their knowledge of American history since anyone with a high school education would know that America was never white! In fact the western hemisphere was never white. The non-white indigenous peoples of the northern and southern hemisphere are the victims of Euro-trash invaders seeking to steal resources by committing genocide or enslaving the natives. Not a behavior to be particularly proud of but was a common occurrence six hundred years ago and continues to this day. (I refer you to two recent books: All the Real Indians Died Off by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz and They Came before Columbus by Ivan Van Sertima)
Of course Trump voters don't read they watch Faux News. The worthless media won't mention the real history because it might interfere with their profits as the CEO of CBS so elegantly stated in 2016. So when I hear the slogan, MAGA, I automatically equate it to MAWA and ask the question when was America ever great, especially, when you consider its four hundred year history past and present.
Wouldn't we be great if we recognized our past mistakes and worked diligently to correct them? Wouldn't we be great if we actually lived up to and followed the Constitution? Wouldn't we be great if we stopped the decades of racist imperialism in the over seventy non-white countries invaded over the last one hundred and fifty years? And wouldn't we be great if we had a society that did not accept forty million people living in poverty? I think that would make America great, what do you think?
