WORDS ALWAYS HAVE CONSEQUENCES

Donald Trump’s appalling reaction to a hate crime committed in his name

Two Boston men were charged Wednesday, August 19, 2015,  in the beating of a homeless Mexican man. The victim was allegedly sleeping outside a subway station when brothers Scott and Steve Leader rummaged through his things, then started beating him around the face and neck and hitting him with a metal pole.

One witness heard the brothers laughing as they walked away.

Here’s what Donald Trump said when told about the alleged assault (according to the Boston Globe) at a Wednesday press conference in New Hampshire:

“I haven’t heard about that. It would be a shame, but I haven’t heard about that.” Then the crowd buzzed, and Trump added: “I will say that people who are following me are very passionate.

They love this country and they want this country to be great again.

They are passionate.

I will say that, and everybody here has reported it.”

“As it appears in … full read. full credit”

Public figures who make hate acceptable, who fan the flames of fear, do enormous damage, both to our public discourse and to the lives of those they target and those they convince that acting on that hatred is justified.

Donald Trump is the nadir of the right-wing hate-mongering machine.

~COMMENT FROM A FACEBOOK MEMBER~

I would just like to say I am so sick of Trump and his racist speech’s. Who is fact checking anything that he says? I listen to him and is this what we want for a President? There are other people in this race we hear nothing about because it is all about Trump.
Yes I will vote for another candidate but this is silly and I believe someone has to put the brakes on this.
Just wanted to vent.

I’ve been wrestling with the idea to stop promoting, reblogging or sharing information about this “man” who professes to be so great, awesome and fantastic. A man who is arrogant, bombastic, loud mouthed, crass, pompous and possesses a “yuuuge” ego.

The reason behind this thought is because I’m one of the many who give him free publicity and shine the spotlight on his senseless words.

Had to look this one up: BLOVIATE

To bloviate is to talk, but not just to chat.

To bloviate means to go on and on and on and on, usually in a pompous way.

However, there has to be some way to stop this.

He’s insulted Hispanics, war heroes, women, his fellow candidates, other cultures, journalists and so much more.

The only way that his can be done is by keeping an eye on him, his actions and comments.

If left unchecked and, god forbid, becomes president, he will bring an era of incredible ridicule, destruction, disenfranchisement ans so much more.

I have a very hard time realizing that this may be what America has become or even worse, what it’s always been and the mask is coming off! Trump is the epitome of the “Ugly American“.

At the end of the day …. “Bandaloops Crossings”!!


~~November 4, 2014~~

This performance art group is known for works that marry modern dance, rock climbing, culture, and celebration.

Under the artistic direction of Amelia Rudolph, the dancers, climbers and riggers of Project Bandaloop, based in Oakland, California, collaborate to create a blend of dance, sport, ritual, and environmental awareness.

Their work explores the boundaries of dance and performance and seeks to honor nature, community, and the human spirit through their art. Inspired by the possibilities of climbing and rappelling, Project Bandaloop’s choreography relies on aerial, vertical and horizontal movement to craft site-specific dances. The group’s work marries modern dance and rock climbing, culture and nature, mortality and celebration.

The challenge of performing in a wide variety of venues — ranging from urban towers and skyscrapers to fields filled with boulders and large granite cliffs — helps free both the dance and dance space from convention. Bandaloop has performed site-specific works at the New York Stock Exchange, San Francisco Airport, and Yosemite National Park, as well as at traditional theaters in San Francisco, Boston, Buenos Aires, Portugal, and Canada.

For its Kennedy Center debut, Bandaloop will perform the Washington, D.C. premiere of Crossing: Stories of Gravity and Transformation, a new work that integrates images and stories of crossing the Sierra Nevada range, one of the company’s site-specific installations.

~~”Crossing” by BANDALOOP~~

~~Published on Oct 13, 2014~~

BANDALOOP is returning to its mountain roots. We are re-staging “Crossing,” a wilderness performance in one of the Sierra Nevada’s most rugged, remote locations in the Yosemite high country.

Crossing” is historically significant within the cannon of American dance, challenging the boundaries of site-specific performance. Transporting the aesthetic of dancing remotely in fragile landscapes back to the urban, we will bring this work to large and diverse audiences both online and through live multi-media performance.

Amelia Rudolph originally created “Crossing” in 2001, performed over 18 days, across 78 miles and on a 1200 foot cliff. A literal crossing of the Sierra mountain range as performance, these dances were filmed and incorporated into an evening-length theater work performed in San Francisco, China and at the Kennedy Center.

The original work was featured on 20/20 and in the New York Times Magazine.
