American, I love you, but if you’re not careful, somebody is going to get hurt.
We are a nation divided at this moment in history, and we should absolutely know better. United we stand, right? The United States. Right?
Instead we’ve allowed the politicians and their surrogates in the mainstream media tear us in half, cleaving us like cattle for cash and clout. If this sort of thing continues, there’s nowhere to end up put in fisticuffs or worse.
The public shaming portion of this march to chaos has now begun.
Several residents had the signs placed on their lawns or gates in the small island community, often where Trump signs or flags had already been displayed.
Local NBC affiliate KNSD reported:
Police in Coronado were called out after some residents woke up to find out that signs reading “Racism Lives Here” were installed in their yards.
The red, white and blue signs are well-made and are close in appearance to some Trump/Pence signs, with the phrase “Racism Lives Here” replacing the candidates’ names and the updated 2020 campaign slogan “Keep America Great” switched to 2016’s more-familiar “Make America Great Again.”
Pictures were soon circulating on social media.

The act may go unpunished, however.
Local police say that the yard sign’s placement may be “unwanted”, but that no discernible crime had been committed.
As for the damage to the psyche of the country; let’s hope that we can at least nip that in the bud.
