The simplest and most sincere speech did not come from a politician but from the father of a slain Muslim US Army Captain. In his speech, Khizr Khan accused Donald Trump of smearing the character of religious minorities. He implored Trump to look at the graves of all the brave patriots who died defending America: “You will see all faiths, genders, and ethnicities.” Khan’s son, Capt. Humayun Khan, was killed in action in Iraq in 2004. Khan hit Trump hard with these words: “You have sacrificed nothing and no-one.”
The White Hole Star is apolitical, however, we felt this succinct, heartfelt speech from an ordinary member of the public speaks for itself and merits airing.
