Wes Craven, created a horror classic with the 1984 film, A Nightmare on Elm Street. The film featured a creepy yet, catchy song about Freddy Krueger, the psychopath who haunts the lives and minds of Elm Street residents, filling them with fear, confusion, and anxiety.
Well, Americans are being stalked by a new psychopath, Donald the psychopathic President, who is haunting the lives and minds of folks across America. Freddy, like Donald wants people to be apathetic, to fall asleep at the wheel of awareness. Americans must resist being lulled into a damaging dream state where Donald preys on minds to contort. If Donald is indulged in his dream world, where he whines about “winning,” the withering of democracy will not cease. Donald, like Freddy is powerless in the real world, in the real world Donald is not immune to facts. In the real world Donald did not win the election, in the real world the votes of all people count. However, whether it’s Donald’s dream world, or the real world, two things ring true: Donald scares Republicans, and Donald doesn’t give a damn about people.
Donald, the psychopathic President, has folks singing a new cautionary hymn of horror:
One two, Donald’s coming for you
Three four, before 2024
Five six, the man’s got no sense
Seven eight, he’ll fill you with hate
Nine ten, never vote again.
All Americans must face the truth, Donald is a loser. And now that he’s lost the election, he’s after the minds and souls of Americans. The only way to keep Donald’s evil ass nightmare off our streets, is to arm ourselves with facts and kindness. Facts and kindness will destroy him. We must see dignity and light in each other, this is Donald’s kryptonite. The nightmare will not simply end with Donald’s psychopathic Presidency. Facts and kindness, along with every American exercising their right to vote, will bring about an end to this nightmare. Like Donald’s ego, democracy is fragile. Be aware, be very aware.
“Something like Nightmare On Elm Street, to me, was kind of an examination of levels of consciousness and the pain of facing the truth, and how easy it is to fall asleep, or want to fall asleep.” Wes Craven
