Rod Serling would introduce an episode of the “Twilight Zone” with the phrase, “Imagine, if you will ...”
Imagine, if you will, this introduction: “A new president; a man of color. During his first few months in office, he alienates our allies and heads of state; removes our country from major European alliances, thus beginning the destruction of our nation from within …” The scene opens with an image of crowds storming the White House with torches and pitch forks. How dare this newcomer presume to turn everything upside down before establishing a solid government?
Fast forward to present reality. We have a white president whose goal seems to be the deconstruction our democracy. Where is the outrage? If only this were fiction and not a visit to the twilight zone.
