A child grows up to be similar to its parents, both in behavior and in physical characteristics

Two Italian Americans were killed, in fact, clobbered to death by hooded Klansmen
Despite decades of vehement denials by Donald Trump that his father was never associated with the KKK, it seems that not only was Fred Trump an active participant in Klan activities, he was arrested after a 1927 Memorial Day Klan riot in Queens in which two Italian Americans were killed, in fact, clobbered to death by hooded Klansmen.
Donald Trump is not the only illiberal to hypocritically denounce the KKK, witness John Kasich
Under Kasich, racism has become one of Ohio's principal exports

After two terms of Kasich (K-sick) as Ohio's governor, Cincinnati one of the four principal cities of Ohio, has become the childhood poverty capital of the United States. While Kasich boasts of his ability to balance the budget. At least, now we know how he does it.
The 20 year old neoNazi who killed a young woman during a KKK riot in Charlottesville, Virginia, grew up in Kasich Ohio. It is perhaps a sign of our times that the press has not investigated the killers activities in his native Ohio. Moral authority, the core essential ingredient upon which the tenets of the American Republic rely, have been mortally wounded by the likes of Trump and Kasich, Ryan and McConnell.
The road back to one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all, will be a slow and painful process.
Kasich says that we cannot abandon the president of the United States, Donald Trump.
I beg to differ, those of sound mind and judgement will stand for justice and realize that Trump must be removed from office. Kasich is not of sound mind and judgement, by the above criteria.
Kasich is more interested in his chances to aspire to the presidency, than with standing for what this great nation does; life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We do not need to replace one bigot, with another one.
Kasich used the power of the governor's office to go after those who protested against his historic all-white Cabinet, calling them quota supporters and scoffing that “I don’t pay attention to my critics", neither does Donald Trump. However Kasich was unable to quell the opposition to his rather obvious white nationalist Cabinet and sought to correct what he called an oversight by adding two black directors to his administrative team. In other words, the establishment of an all white cabinet was true Kasich. The adding of to black administrators was Kasich's facing an uproar of disapproval to his white nationalist beliefs.
As widely reported in the press, in his first month as governor, Kasich set out to settle some old scores. He complained about a three-year-old ticket for passing too close to an emergency vehicle by questioning the intelligence of the officer who had pulled him over and ticketed him. And although, Kasich later apologized to the officer, a couple of months later he signed a bill that stripped most collective-bargaining rights from the police, fire as well as teachers unions.
Justifiably, Kasich and all the other social bigots in this country will be relegated to the ash pile of history. And, the idea that Pence is a worthy replacement, ignores his inability to acknowledge the extra-legal lynchings in Grant County, Indiana. And, the fact that he was willing to lie for the white supremacist son of a white supremacist, who may have been involved in murder personally during a KKK riot in Queens, New York City, and if not personally, he went to that riot with the idea of doing harm with his fellow Klan members to Roman Catholics. And, two Italian Roman Catholics died as a result of the Klan violence that ensued.
Kasich appeals to the same slice of the American electorate that Donald Trump does, and for the same reasons; racism, white nationalism and bigotry.
Ohio does not need to export anymore Kasich inspired racist murders.
