Stevie Wonder should be banished. Before we say why, here is some context.
The ultimate sign of respect for our country is a peaceful protest standing up to the political leaders, establishment, and those who would impose their will upon us. Donald Trump, for example, would suppress free speech rights for a blind nationalistic position.
Free speech is a linchpin of our society, and Donald Trump would have it suppressed through blind nationalism, in disregard for the constitution that gives us our freedoms.
“President Trump early Sunday ramped up his criticism of NFL players who refuse to stand for the national anthem, calling for them to be fired or suspended and slamming the league.
‘If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast,’ he tweeted. ‘Fire or suspend!’”

This kind of action, from a man who occupies the White House, demonstrates a lack of regard for the foundations of our society. Donald Trump is more interested in suppressing any opposition than he is in standing up for the free speech protections guaranteed to all of us.
Donald Trump clearly is demonstrating that if you oppose his views, you will be punished. This form of retribution is more indicative of a man would be a dictator than the man who would be president.
We wonder if Trump will call for Stevie Wonder to have his citizenship revoked for this:
“Tonight, I'm taking a knee for America; but not just one knee, I'm taking both knees," he said on stage Saturday before his performance at the Global Citizens Festival.
‘Both knees in prayer for our planet, our future, our leaders of the world and our globe. Amen ...’
During the event, Wonder also spoke about interrupting hate, bigotry and condemning sexism.” As reported by CNN.
Trump should banishWonder for his poignant expression of his free speech rights. How dare he stand up for free expression contrary to Trump’s view of our nation. Wonder opposes Trump, and Trump’s dangerous views, so Wonder should be banished.
After all, isn’t that any good dictator would do?
Thank god for all of those who are now standing up to Trump’s nonsense, it is through the exercise of free speech that we may just be able to save our country from the likes of Donald Trump.
If Trump is successful in undermining our free speech rights, he just may become the dictator he wants to be…
