Weir Only Human
When I look at the political war going on in our country I wonder what exactly do Democrats stand for? From 2009, through 2016, we had a Democrat President who traveled the world (on our dime) to criticize the country that had just elected him. Under Obama’s “leadership” the economy tanked, race relations worsened, a tyrannical healthcare plan was forced on us, foreign countries were growing stronger, assisted by bizarre deals made with our money, and the illegal invasion from our southern border was not merely tolerated, but encouraged. Although I didn’t vote for the first black President, when he was elected I felt he would build a bridge toward greater amity among racial groups.
Instead, he seemed determined to “get even” with the white majority for what he perceived as past grievances. I suppose it totally eluded him that he wouldn’t have had a chance if millions of whites had not voted for him. What didn’t elude him was that political correctness was so potent in our system that his color would make him practically impervious to attempts toward limiting his power. Anyone who disagreed with him could be branded a racist, a term that has more stopping power than a .44 magnum. The media, loath to take sides against a black Chief Executive and constantly looking for ways to roil the fires of racial division, were complicit each time Obama took sides against the police when blacks were part of the equation.
The only positive result of Obama’s election is that it paved the way for Donald Trump’s election. When the decent citizens of this country saw the racial turmoil, the loss of jobs, the empowerment of our country’s enemies and the utter contempt for Middle-America, they wondered if our country had finally been defeated from within. Just about the time they were ready to lock and load in anticipation of a Hillary Clinton presidency that would finish the job started by her Marxist predecessor, Donald Trump was descending from that escalator in his New York hotel. He spoke bluntly about the decline of our nation and of his intention to make it great again. He referred to the corruption in Washington, referring to it as a swamp in need of draining.
Trump went on to become the most indefatigable campaigner of all time, going straight to the forgotten people in “flyover country.” Democrats and their liberal media accomplices poked fun at the huge attendance at Trump rallies, often dismissing them as unsophisticated rubes wearing overalls and carrying pitchforks. Then, Hillary made her worst mistake of all; she called them “deplorables!” That summed up the left’s antipathy for those who don’t live in the inner cities; those who’d rather dig ditches than accept welfare; those who love this country and are not ashamed to fly our flag; those who obey the law and support the Constitution; and those who proudly proclaim their religious heritage and raise their families accordingly.
When the Donald shocked the world by beating the woman who felt it was “her turn” to be President, the left came unglued! Now, Democrats have the dubious distinction of being against all those attempts to make America great again. Hence, when the POTUS says we need to build a wall to stop the southern invasion, which is providing transportation for illegals from as far away as El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, Democrats call it racism. When Trump takes the lead in a massive tax cut that is already stimulating the economy and providing millions of new jobs, Democrats call it “crumbs,” even though black and Hispanic unemployment is at record lows.
When the POTUS gets tough with North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-un, forcing him to stop nuclear testing and meet for a summit, Dems say he’s falling for a con job. When Trump calls MS-13 gang members “animals” because of their savage methods of murder, Nancy Pelosi feels a sweet sense of compassion for the machete-wielding monsters. As of this writing, Ms. Pelosi has not shown enough compassion to invite some of those tattoo-covered troglodytes to her palatial home for dinner. Meanwhile, Hollywood hedonists are among Trump’s most vicious antagonists, undoubtedly because they are part of and fully support that putrid swamp which will always despise anyone who threatens to use a disinfectant.
It should be obvious that our country is growing stronger and richer because President Trump has stimulated a revival of patriotism that was almost invalidated by those who added the term to their “everything is racist” lexicon. It seems to me that the only con job is that which is being perpetrated by leftwing Democrats and their fake news media accomplices against an electorate that is fed up with their lack of objectivity in favor of their radical political activism.
