Weir Only Human
The withering attacks on our President would have defeated an average man long ago. Imagine waking up for the past 500 days to a constant drumbeat of lies and distortions of your policies from the mainstream media, leftwing activists and radical Democrats. How courageous do you have to be to continue doing what you know is good for the country, while every story out of the liberal media begins with a negative title, setting the stage for the reader to have a jaundiced opinion of your actions? We’re living in an era in which the media is conspiring to destroy the duly elected choice of America’s voters.
That is not what the Founding Fathers intended when they established a free press. Journalists were given the responsibility to report to the people when government became repressive. Instead, they have arrogated to themselves the right to repress the facts by determining what should be reported to the people, based on their own political philosophy. The journalist’s code used to be; keep the people informed of the facts and let them form their own opinions. Sadly, it’s become, distort the facts and give them your opinions. Every story coming out of a liberal publication is less about objectivity and more about editorial opinion.
Those publications have no need of an editorial section because their opinions crowd every story concerning President Trump. Such a constant bombardment of the public’s psyche can lead to hatred for the man who promised to drain the swamp of the corruption that has become synonymous with government. It soon became obvious that the leftwing media was a major denizen of that swamp. Thus, in order for the cabal of corruption to survive, Trump had to be turned into a hated figure. That gave license to every Hollywood pervert to refer to the President in vile and abusive terms, knowing they’d get favorable publicity from the complicit press as well as kudos from the glitterati at the next cocaine soiree in Tinseltown.
They weren’t concerned about Trump supporters because, after all, didn’t their leader say those people are deplorable? Robert DiNiro, knowing he’d be admired by his equally perverse horde of Beverley Hills reprobates, used four-letter obscenities against Trump on a live public broadcast as cameras panned the crowd of cheering attendees. We can only wonder how many susceptible people watching that repugnant display of hatred for our President might decide that killing him would make them a hero. Is that the ultimate aim of the left? A sign of incipient violence is already rearing its vicious fangs when Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is harassed while eating at a DC restaurant and then again later at her home.
A few days later, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders is asked to leave a DC restaurant because the owner doesn’t agree with Trump’s policies. Instead of outrage from the press and Democrats, all of whom have been pontificating for generations about the lack of tolerance in the country, we’ve heard no defense for Nielsen or Sanders. Even the so-called feminists, whose collective knees would jerk uncontrollably if any liberal woman was so treated, have suddenly developed a case of political laryngitis. Additionally, such 24/7 indoctrination of hatred for anything connected to Trump has resulted in numerous assaults on those having the temerity to wear a “MAGA” shirt or hat in public.
So, I ask the question; how long before such hatred drives some demented loser to plot the assassination of our President? How farfetched is that question when we have Peter Fonda calling for Barron Trump to be kidnapped and turned over to pedophiles? His subsequent apology is insincere because he already got the support he expected from the Trump-derangement crowd. By the way, has anyone heard any condemnation of those threats from Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer? Not hardly! That’s because there’s not a profile in courage to be found in the swamp. Is the left monitoring the response of the Secret Service to determine what actions they take toward such threatening comments?
All of the foregoing may be precursors to an actual assassination attempt. Is there some sick individual, with nothing to lose, thinking about achieving immortality by rubbing out the man who’s been demonized by some of the most powerful forces in the country? If the President continues to fulfill his campaign promises, will the left decide the only way to stop him is to eliminate him? If, God forbid, such a tragedy occurred, where would it leave us as a country? During an era of unprecedented threats to our republic, both national and international, there’s never been a stronger, more determined champion of the USA. If that becomes a motive for his murder, America is over.
