The title clarifies that as Shia LaBeouf is my second blog about people who inspire and share, that number places him in no different position to any other human that will or shall exist.
I envy the stage your life is currently playing on. It is an elevation that is above any of our human frailties to withstand for extended periods of time. I admire your idealism, and that your identity is much more complicated than what we see on the screen.
Your voice spreading virally around the globe is a phenomenon that at your age, in my life couldn’t have fathomed. The dichotomy of its defiance and love show what is in your heart and gives me hope that our struggle will not fail, falling to the side of the road in rocky soil where it’s seed will dry up.
Your voice continues the dialogue of a place that most of humanity has been affected by. Your voice speaks of what happens when no one speaks.
The holocaust came about not just from a single man that wrote of hatred, that spoke propaganda, that bullied opposition and spread fear. It was a voice that believed he had a destiny. That he and those like him were superior. The words had the power and the man abused the words for personal gain, personal glorification.
“He Will Not Divide US”! is today’s conversation about a man that in too many ways similar. A man that bullied the top politicians of one of America’s most powerful political parties into irrelevancy. A man who bear false witness against another man that he believed was inferior to him because of his race and religion. A man who manipulated media and usurped the power of the greatest nation on earth for his own glorified sense of self.
I am thankful for you, Shia LeBeouf, for your courage. For calling him out. You are affecting a mass conversation and message that I am dedicated to continue sharing in your movement until this man is removed from office. Until his power to tear apart the fabric of Americas Constitution and values is stopped.
