When America Was “Great”… by Paul Street + Indigenous Peoples’ History is More Complicated Than a Holiday Myth – Dandelion Salad

November 29, 2021

Another excellent essay by Paul Street on the Dandelion Salad blog.

Trump and his followers wearing the trademark “MAGA” insignia haven’t so much as a clue concerning what would actually constitute greatness when referring to the land of the free and the home of the brave. This issue shows where Trump’s rhetoric makes a mockery of the phrase “Make American Great Again”.

Donald Trump has a twisted vision of what it would mean to make America great to begin with.  He merely spouted the platitudes he thought would earn him the votes he would need to win the Presidency – with neither the knowledge of what our society would become nor the inclination to act in such a manner as to achieve it. In any case, few people would say that America is any closer to greatness than it was before he took office.

The Former President’s claim that only he can fix what is broken is preposterous. Any progress towards a more humane, egalitarian, non-discriminatory society that restores rather than destroys the planet and the people living on it will be made despite, rather than because of, the efforts and actions of Donald Trump and what he has made of the GOP.
