Unscathed by vile slander, you have won the hearts of millions. You are radiant in the patriotic glory of your alliance with with our country’s darkest forces, you are massing support in the polls, and you hope to take the presidency, the crown jewel of American politics.
But what filth your wretched attacks have cast on your name. You have spoken calumny against the President as a birther, falsely accused Mexican immigrants of hideous crimes, attacked freedom of the press, and encouraged hatred and violence against our Moslem brothers and sisters. Your words are a supreme insult to all truth and justice. And now the image of America is sullied by this filth, and history shall record that it was under your guidance that these crimes against society was committed.
As they have dared, so shall I dare. Dare to tell the truth, as I have pledged to tell it, in full, since the normal channels of justice are failing to make you see reason and justice. My duty is to speak out; I do not wish to be an accomplice in this travesty. My nights would otherwise be haunted by the specter of the innocent, suffering tortures for a crimes they did not commit.
I accuse you of being diabolical creator of these miscarriages of justice – and others to come. I accuse you of poisoning our discourse with bile. I accuse you of complicity in crimes committed by your supporters in your name. I accuse you of slandering the President and undermining our most sacred constitutional rights.
I have but one passion: to enlighten those who have been kept in the dark, in the name of humanity which has suffered so much and is entitled to happiness. My fiery protest is simply the cry of my very soul. I dare you and your vicious, naive and ignorant supporters to slander me.
I am waiting.
