Dear protesters on the streets of London,

You say that Donald Trump has no right to be in your country because sexists, homophobes and fundamentalists have no place in Britain. Fair enough!

But you do realize that Trump is just one of thousands of people who have entered the United Kingdom in recent years, who harbor questionable views on humanity, right? Besides, Trump is someone who’s definitely returning to where he came from.

The fundamentalists who hate gays, women and Jews are already among you! They are your neighbors, old and new, and above all, they’re not American presidents.

All gays, women and Jews persecuted and attacked in your country by haters are backed by an ideology and guess what, that ideology is not based on the Constitution of the United States of America.

In your country pussies are not only grabbed, but are also mutilated. Gays are persecuted in your country. Women are forced into prisons made of cloth. Children are abused. That all happens in the context of a supposed honor, an „honor“ which doesn’t derive itself from the writings of Alexander Hamilton but from phrophets, to be precise one prophet. That „honor“ provides cages for children. And even kills them!

So please save some of your energy and use it to demonstrate against the dangerous hatred already in your neighborhoods that’s there to stay. The orange clown is leaving again and in a few years he’ll be departing the world stage. Yes, I don’t like him either and I’m glad when he’s not in the White House anymore, but nevertheless there’s a hatred that’s already taken root in your country.

There are many reasons to demonstrate against Trump, that’s clear, as clear as the fact that there’s no danger when demonstrating against Trump. On the contrary, you are celebrated by the majority. Furthermore, you shouldn’t forget that you can demonstrate because you are in a free society, and in Europe we are free also because the USA fought for this freedom and still defends it today.

However, there are people and ideologies that oppress and kill people, and spread fear and terror, even in Europe. To demonstrate against that is really dangerours. I have friends living with death threats because they dare to speak, love and laugh. These death threats where not articulted in the mother tongue of Trump.

Do you dare to fight for them? Do you dare to demonstrate against the guys who persecute my friends? Some of them are muslims, muslims who dared to question their religion.

Many Jews, homosexuals and women have been persecuted and murdered in Europe in recent years. The hatred that encourages such violence also carries MAGA hats, but the first A in those hats does not stand for America but for a so-called god.

Als Autor verfasse ich Theaterstücke, Glossen und Artikel.
