Trumpland

Trump’s flag burning tweet is straight out of Fidel Castro’s revolution playbook

As the media once again gets set aflame by our future Troll-in-Chief, our news feeds are lit up by every possible variation of condemnation regarding Donald Trump‘s latest call for fascism, and rightly so.

Trump’s disturbing post-election Twitter binge took a notably dark turn Tuesday morning, when he called for people who burn the flag as a form of protest to either spend a year in jail and lose their citizenship.

Aside from the obvious constitutional violations this proposes, it also exudes a blatant hypocrisy in light of the rhetoric emanating from the Trump camp and his supporters in the wake of Fidel Castro‘s recent death. In one of the Facebook comment threads I’ve been following on the subject, a friend of mine pointed out that Trump’s statement somewhat mirrors one of the numerous human rights violations that are existent in Cuban law.

As Human Rights Watch’s website points out in their section “Impediments to Human Rights in Cuban Law,” Cubans who express themselves by desecrating the Cuban flag face similar consequences as to the one Trump proposed:

Cuba also punishes someone who “insults or with other acts shows disrespect to the Flag, the [National] Anthem, or the National Seal,” (escudo) with three months to one year of imprisonment.

Plain and simple, Trump’s call for U.S. citizens to be thrown in jail for disobeying his nationalistic orthodoxy is classic authoritarianism.

    Excellent degree in creative writing from a highly regarded university, but nevertheless have no significant credits yet. How should I go about getting published in a reliable magazine or web site the first time? Is self-publishing the way to go? I possess short stories that are done, yet I am not sure where you can send all of them. I know I need an agent, yet trying to get one particular without ever being released just isn’t likely to happen. Any kind of suggestions?.

Now, I am absolutely confused since my uncle tells me, that both of them are the same hosting site for those who blog with Google using blogger/blogspot! Can somebody with authentic knowledge please help me resolve my doubt? Please take my question seriously and “I earnestly request” Y!
