Anyone who lived through the 1960s is quite familiar with the power of words to destroy. Within a ten year period, President John Kennedy was murdered, Malcolm X was killed, Martin Luther King was murdered, and two months later Robert Kennedy was murdered. Perhaps, perhaps, Donald Trump is oblivious to the danger of his words, I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. But, his nonstop shouting hate and anger toward Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton could easily be interpreted by some of the nut cases attending his rallies to blast away.
Yuval Rabin, son of former Israel Prime Minister, Yitzhak Rabin warned Americans of the danger of shouting hate. His father was killed by an Israel hater who was urged on to hate by people like Benjamin Netanyahu. ‘Trumps’s words are an incitement to the type of political violence that touched me personally.” Netanyahu continued to claim Rabin was a “traitor” for seeking peace with Palestinians. One day, someone transformed those words into action. Will the same occur in America?
