Dear Mr Trump, are you an intolerant bigot?

You've called women derogatory terms and even boasted about being able to sexually assault them. You've equated Mexicans to rapists and supported a growth in hate crime and intolerance towards the Hispanic community. You've furthered the ill informed phobia of innocent Muslims as well as suggesting a Hitler-esc identification system. You've made many divisive comments especially concerning immigrants and those from ethnic minorities despite the fact that you, as a non-native American, are descended from immigrants. You've even questioned the citizenship of your own president, Barack Obama.

All of these well-evidenced things seem to suggest that you are a bigot. These things seem to suggest that you are divisive. These things seem to suggest that you follow a moral code based not on facts, love and equality but on prejudice, hatred and uninformed hysteria.

So I was wondering, Mr Trump, are you an intolerant bigot?

If you're not an intolerant bigot then I must ask you why you do and say these things. Is it to win over right-wing Republican voters? Is it so that you can boast your ego and have a moment in the spotlight?

If that's the case then you are far worse than a bigot. If you are in fact lying about your opinions then you are a person who knows that bigotry is wrong, a person who knows that scapegoating minorities is wrong, a person who knows that sexism, racism, homophobia, xenophobia, islamophobia and other forms of prejudice and intolerance are morally wrong and factually incorrect. If that is the case then you are a person who knows all of this yet still encourages these vile opinions and attitudes. If that is the case then you are a man who exploits these ill-informed views for your own idiotic, fear mongering, f-ck'd up, selfish, deplorable, unequivocally divisive, egotistical, megalomaniacal, evidently immoral and factually void presidential campaign. If that is the case, Mr Trump, then f*ck you, you f*cking a**hole.

Just for the record I'm not necessarily calling you a bigot or a fear-monger, Mr Trump. I'm simply asking a question. I wouldn't dream of stating my opinion, mainly because I don't want to be sued and fascist bigots are fond of suing.

Feel free to slut-shame me at 3 a.m. on Twitter but I'm not a woman so you probably won't.

Peace and Love,

Sam.
