Yes folks, let’s hope Nancy leads the charge this wednesday to impeach/imprison The Donald by end of THIS week! Wouldn’t that just be the icing on the cake after the Biden win earlier.
It goes without saying that this single individual has put humanity backward by a hundred years what we fought hard for. Our civil liberties, equal rights and common decency among our fellow citizens, no matter what colour, race or religion you affiliated with.
Instead we got white supremacists and run of the mill ignoramuses who thought it was ok to come out of the woodwork and take potshots at any random non white looking individual, like yours truly. Yes, true story.
It was in the middle of this past summer, I was walking with my wife across a rather busy intersection of Roncey, Queen and King (aka the “five corners”) when passing this European looking man about my age, maybe a couple years senior (who for all I knew was in Canada for a lot fewer years than myself – based on his accent I’m probably right. Having received my Canadian Citizenship in 1973 I’ve earned my place).
Yells at me “Go back to China”!
Ya can you believe in this day and age that such nut jobs still exist? If my wife were not there (which I’m sure he leveraged for his own cowardliness) I don’t know what I would have done. I visualized grabbing him by the scruff of his neck, making him apologize in front of the crowd, and essentially grovel for his life on his knees, slap him a few times for gratification and humiliation. . . otherwise, I might have ragdolled him across the street.
But i didn’t.
I did nothing.
I stared in disbelief. . . (yelled some expletive at him) . . .
and walked away.
After all, I am a Sensei.
A Professor of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. A black belt. I have to set the bar and example to students. I need to practise what I preach. To just walk away. And that’s exactly what I did. I’m not happy with it. Oh no. Don’t get me wrong. I was upset for days, weeks. Months later I still think about it time to time. It’s January 2021, a full 1/2 year has gone by and I chose to bring it up. Why? Because Donald Trump has given these people the voice to speak their walnut sized brains.
The racism in this and other like minded western countries runs deep, whether we believe it or not. It’s often in plain sight and yet we still miss it. If you’re the target audience, well, you won’t.
Take for example, the case of the Huawei exec Meng Wanzhou. She is pictured smiling as she is illegally detained under false accusations led by none other than Donald Trump which under taped recordings has confessed to admitting improper detainment of a Chinese National for the express purpose of use as a geopolitical pawn. A pawn. This isn’t the China of 1940’s. Today’s China has more than enough arsenal to wipe out major US cities (and Canadian ones for that matter). So I’m left asking myself, why are they playing with fire? Why the unprovoked, provocation? Racism. Plain and simple. Why has Canada not done a single thing? Why have they not had the backbone to stand up for what’s right? I’m sadly disappointed.
Certain segments of the US, are sore losers, and yes they carry big sticks (with trillion dollar defence budgets unaccounted for no wonder they need an enemy). Like the bully in the playground he beats down the weak kids and steals their lunch money. The only problem is . . . this kid (among other nations) has grown up.
With that said, I bring you. . . the IMPEACHMENT episode. Enjoy.
