QUIRK-SILVA DENOUNCES POLITICIAN TRUMP USING HATE SPEECH FOR PERSONAL POLITICAL GAIN

FULLERTON, CA—In response to his visit to Orange County today, full-time classroom teacher and 65th Assembly District candidate Sharon Quirk-Silva today denounced presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for his past and continued hate speech targeting wide segments of society.

“Donald Trump represents the kind of huckster politician that has no place in a civil democracy,” said Quirk-Silva. “He is another in a long line of political bullies who pits one group against another for his own gain.

“Too many people in this country are hurting or feel like the system is rigged against them. “The truth is Trump is a billionaire political insider who is one of the people who rigged it against them.

“He finds exploiting the pain of others perfectly acceptable, and he’s hoping to use people’s anxiety and turn them against the usual scapegoats of society – immigrants, the politically powerless, and the vulnerable.

“As leaders we must speak out when people’s anxiety is used as a political weapon. As a community, as a society, we must reject Trump and the filth he spews on a daily basis.”

Quirk-Silva currently teaches 3rd grade and has spent 30 years teaching in the Fullerton School District. She is the former Mayor of Fullerton and served in the Assembly from 2012-2014.

The 65th Assembly District includes Buena Park, Cypress, Fullerton, La Palma, Stanton and most of West Anaheim.

    I have much stronger and enduring denunciation for those who pit one group against each other WITH THE FORCE OF LAW and by MISUSING OR IGNORING EXISTING LAW TO DO IT. Words can be counteracted with OPPOSING WORDS of intelligence in opposition, with the force of law only involving itself (if even) after reasoned and hopefully complete debate. Indiscriminate abuse of the force of law demeans both the abuser and law itself and slides the USA toward censorship, tyranny and other hallmarks of the totalitarian societies IT used to MOCK (and oppose) during the “Cold War” . Current practice seems to instead favor accenting the “Jerk” in “Knee-Jerk Reaction”.
