Children Voice Their Fears About Trump

Oppressing people of color, womyn, Muslims and the LGBTQ+ community is one thing, but when Trump starts stoking fear into the minds of children, he has gone too far. Accredited journalists across the country have asked children to voice their concerns and fears about Trump, and the answers that came back to us were shocking. Almost all of the children were deeply fearful of Trump’s plans to implement a fascist, racist police state, especially children of color, gay and trans children. Below are some of the most notable responses:

Adam Landsdowne, Age 11

“As an African American, I want to know what Trump is doing for my people. Trump doesn’t care about black people. What is the future for people like me in Trump’s America?”

Maria Ramirez, Age 7

“Many of my family and friends are undocumented. Trump wants to send them back to Mexico. How can you do this to innocent people Trump!?”

Sydney Gonzales, Age 6

“I am trans, and Trump wants to take away my rights to use the bathroom. I’m scared about what Trump will do to trans children like me, and what it means for the LGBT community.”

Tina Jackson, Age 10

“Listen Trump! Just listen REAL carefully. If you think you’re going to get away with deporting people to Mexico and hurting people of color, you’re wrong. You’re just a stupid white male with no brains! We need a woman in the White House! Hillary is going to beat you next time and teach you a thing or two!”

The fact that Trump is not only oppressing adults, but also scaring children, should enrage any upstanding American. What kind of society have we become when we allow innocent children to bare the burden of Trump’s fascist policies? We need to come together as a society and declare that enough is enough. We can no longer condone the fascist path that our country is headed down, and it’s time to do something about it.

By definition, children are the future of this country, we need to remember this. The incredible sense they speak in the above quotes show that they are more than capable of steering this country in the right direction. This is why it is time to end voting discrimination that sees kids before 18 years old denied the vote. 18 years old! They are old enough to die for their country and yet not old enough to ensure an Orange fascist does not become president.

I say it is time to allow children the vote, without age restrictions. Anyone who disagrees with this is an authoritarian bigot!

I agree that voting for the youth would be fantastic.
Elmo would make a great president and Daniel Tiger a great vice president.
Elmo has already become politically active.
Besides a Red President is way better than an orange one.

Precocious, but now is the best time for them to listen to Ted Cruz speeches, and read the Drudge Report and ZeroHedge. These kids’ open minds are huge assets.The best and brightest always rebel against their parents’ claptrap and what they hear in school.

They sure do rebel against math, physics, chemistry, and other so-called “exact” sciences, which are simply thinly disguised modern examples of racism.

I am absolutely convinced that Tranies should be incentivised to emigrate to North Korea, in order to help our Asian brothers live through their next famine.

The kids can stay and be sent to re-education camps, heavy with math, physics, chemistry, and a dash of history. How not to caught up in death cults like so many Muslims can also be included.

What a credit to our public education system that these wonderful children are given the skills to articulate their fears and concerns in such a powerful way. It is also amazing that 6 yr old “Tina” has developed the self awareness to declare xir self as trans at such a young age. This is obviously a credit to xir fearless and dedicated teachers.

They are perfectly justified being afraid of Trump. Trumps brother in law, Francesco Schettino, captain of the sunken Italian cruise ship Costa Concordia, intentionally hurt children when abandoning ship. No women and children first on that ship. Deplorable. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9RiVd4fTfNE Oh, and Kaptain Krunch is a Putin Spy! They put listening devices in the cereal toys. FACT.
