I think it is important to keep perspective and context. And not fall into what is easy to fall into. That which we know as hate.
That being said I really cannot say anything negative about what Kathy did. She honestly she portrayed was the accumulation of frustration and irritation of a thousand cuts inflicted by President Trump.
This is a man who has inflicted harm – in no particular order – upon:
- our environment
- our rights
- our nation
- our animals
- our children
- our elderly
- our poor
- our compromised
- our society
- our lives
- our press
- …continue the list here. What do you think he has destroyed is destroying?
essentially in the sort period of time Trump has been president he has inflicted harm across all. Except for one group. The ridiculously wealthy. This is a person who has spent more time over a misspelled word than when people are harmed in his implicit name. More time spent over a misspelled word than acknowledging the heroes in Portland. More time spent over a misspelled word than making a statement versus making a STATEMENT against hate. Essentially President Trump has done nothing but destroy. We have in place a good and valuable system to manage and remove destroyers. Now is the time. Kathy Griffin’s expression simply showed at a boil the feelings of all those who are being harmed. They have no voice for they are not millionaires nor billionaires. It is time to Remove Trump.
I am thankful for all Artists in this world and that is what she is. An Artist. Artist’s have freedom to express themselves in America without any rebute. It is no stretch to say that an Artist’s job is to challenge and confront the norms, expand the known, and stretch the imagination.
