On Thursday, July 21, 2016, in Cleveland, Ohio, in the Quicken Loans Arena, an extremely significant event occurred. However, almost no one noticed it.
The event was not mentioned by most of the main stream media and it has been expunged from some of their records. Perhaps it was removed because it was anti-thematic, or perhaps it was so bold and upsetting that it was akin to Martin Luther’s Reformation.
Wearing pink (the sound of the ocean) in a sea of red (Republican colours), at 55 seconds into her speech, Ivanka Trump spoke these words:
“… Like many of my fellow millennials I do not consider myself categorically Republican or Democrat. More than party affiliation I vote based on what I believe is right for my family, and for my country. …”
If Ivanka had been anyone other than the daughter of the nominee for President, she would have been booed or run off the stage for saying these words. When she started her speech, the crowd cheered every phrase, but when she said that she was neither Republican nor Democrat, the crowd went silent.
Ivanka Trump’s words were some of the boldest spoken in any major political arena, and yet while the rest of her speech was scrutinized, these words were ignored. Why? Because they are the “writing on the wall”, the shot across the bow, the zeitgeist movement that neither political party wants to acknowledge, the millennial event that everyone knows is here … and it declares that for future generations, partisan politics is over.
