I am intrigued by how a simple slogan such as “Make America Great Again” can trick people into just assuming that America is this Hell Hole which needs improving. Curiously, as we set to make America great again, it is pretty clear we are making it really bad in the process. The irony!
Because there is no doubt that racial tension, bigotry and hate has truly been exacerbated in the last year or so. After all, if a presidential candidate can be the ultimate A-Hole, why can’t I too be an A-Hole?
What makes this slogan even more intriguing is that some of the plans to make America Great Again have to do with keeping immigrants out of our country. Why is it that Immigrants are coming into our country in the first place? Seems to me that if this was such a Hell Hole, it would be us fleeing, not the immigrants rushing in.
But hey! There is tons and tons of pieces of paper, vinyl, stickers and all the plausible paraphernalia printed with the words “Make America Great Again”, so the only possible conclusion must be that America was once awesome but not anymore. Oh! Who could save us…
I mean, anybody could argue that the words “Make America Again” are just a lie and a ploy to make somebody else’s bank account GREAT, AGAIN! But where is the evidence for this claim? It hasn’t been written in paper, so it must not be true…
