Kent [WA] police are looking for a gunman who allegedly walked onto a man’s driveway and shot him, saying “Go back to your own country.”And this, which illustrates the vast gulf in humanity between George W. Bush and Trumplethinskin:
The victim, a 39-year-old Sikh man, was working on his vehicle in his driveway in Kent’s East Hill neighborhood about 8 p.m. Friday when he was approached by an unknown man, Kent police said, after talking with the victim.
An altercation followed, with the victim saying the suspect made statements to the effect of “Go back to your own country.” The victim was shot in the arm.
The victim described the shooter as a 6-foot-tall white man with a stocky build. He was wearing a mask covering the lower half of his face, the victim said.
[Jasmit Singh, a leader of the Sikh community in Renton] said Puget Sound-area Sikh men in particular have reported a rise in verbal abuse and uncomfortable encounters recently, “a kind of prejudice, a kind of xenophobia that is nothing that we’ve seen in the recent past.”Because while George W. Bush had a number of traits that I regarded as being detestable, time has proven he had some humanity.
To Singh, the number of incidents targeting members of the religion, which has its roots in the Punjab region of South Asia, recalls the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks in 2001.
“But at that time, it felt like the [presidential] administration was actively working to allay those fears,” he said. “Now, it’s a very different dimension.”
Nobody will ever say that about Trump.
