Election 2016

Rioting Only Makes Trump Stronger

esquire.comA long time back, I was interviewing a guy who’d been a serious member of the Black Panthers—the real Black Panthers, not the two guys with berets outside the polling station in Philadelphia who scared Bill O’Reilly white. We were talking about the riots that broke out in Los Angeles in the wake of the acquittal of the police officers who’d beaten Rodney King. The guy shook his head, sadly, and said,

“We had a saying in the Panthers. ‘Spontaneity is the art of fools.'”

With that in mind, I would like to humbly suggest that those people who gather to protest the appearances of He, Trump kindly stop being such predictable tools for those really dark forces that are gathering around the presumptive Republican nominee.
