If you are a Christian, place the flag on the grave of a Jewish vet. If you are white, find the grave of an African American or Latino vet and place a flag there. The important part is that we honor our fellow Americans when we can, Sexton wrote on a Facebook page to promote the event. At the Democratic National Convention, Khizr Khan, thefatherof Humayun Khan, who died in 2004 in Iraq, spoke out against Trumps comments about banningMuslim immigrants.Khan questioned whetherTrump had read the Constitution and said the billionaire business man hadnt sacrificed for his country. http://eliwellshome.khmermerchant.com/2016/08/05/a-straightforward-breakdown-of-choosing-indispensable-factors-of-selection-interview/Trump countered by implying that Khans wife, Ghazala, wasnt allowed to speak due to her Muslim religion. He said he had made sacrifices and promoted his business skills during an interview with ABC News. Ghazala Khan wrote an opinion piece for the Washington Post saying she was silent because she becomes emotional talking about her son. The back-and-forth continued as Khizr Khan accused Trump of dodging the Vietnam War draft. For Sexton, the conflict speaks to the broader issue of anti-Muslim rhetoric. Ive become increasingly disturbed by the us vs. them rhetoric that increasingly comes from a certain candidate for high office.
