Random thoughts about the monumental, glorious election of November 8, 2016:
Tremendous, YUGE actually, sense of relief about the results. No matter what a President Donald J. Trump does, he’s not Hillary Clinton. The “fundamental transformation of America” grinds to a halt–like a golem bashing itself mindlessly against a solid WALL of opposition.
The special snowflakes show no sign of getting over it, though. We who feared Obama (rightly so), as much as President-elect Donald Trump’s opponents fear him, didn’t whine and cry and scream and holler and protest in the streets when Obama won.
It’s amusing to recall how the media was set upon making Trump promise to accept and support the eventual nominee of his party. Then, after Trump won the nomination, the media challenged him to accept and support the eventual winner of the election. (So sure were they that Hillary would win, but they couldn’t muster enough fraudulent votes or as many illegal alien voters that they’d need to overcome Trump’s overwhelming support.)
Because Trump won, it’s obvious that the media ought to have, but of course didn’t, ask Hillary Clinton and her supporters the same question about respecting the results of the election and supporting the new president.
Similarly, the media are hounding Trump to disavow his alleged supporters’ alleged violence against or bullying of … fill in the blank: women, blacks, Hispanics, illegal aliens, Muslims. A few incidents across this yuge country, not yet investigated fully so facts unknown, and Trump is somehow answerable. What of the false allegations deliberately made to smear Trump and his supporters? Do the media call upon Hillary to answer for them?
The media haven’t asked Hillary Clinton to disavow the racist, violent, bigoted, sexist, hateful rhetoric of her followers, who currently are “protesting” by rioting, blocking traffic, burning, vandalizing, breaking windows and generally perpetrating mayhem because they won’t accept the results of the election.
Clinton’s supporters claim their First Amendment right to protest, yet they don’t accord the complicit media their First Amendment rights to freely cover and report what they see. Yet the media complies even as their rights are violated by violent Clinton supporters. Go figure.
In Portland, Oregon, after the media was threatened and news crews and reporters were repeatedly attacked by anti-Trump rioters, news station KGW-TV announced they would no longer send reporters to directly cover the protests. Instead, the station said their reporters would cover the protests “from a safe distance.”
In one example of the intimidating violence directed against the media, a KGW news crew was attacked by Hillary supporters wielding a baseball bat.
And yet, the meme, the narrative, is that Trump is in a “war” against the media. Of course, the media also don’t ask the current president, Obama, to do anything to stop this violence.
They don’t even report the violence, preferring instead to falsely claim that “most” of the protests are “peaceful.”
Note that the story quoted above includes the suggestion that this news station may not cover the violence or even show it for fear that it might incite more violence. That rationalization for not covering (and thus admitting to) the violence doesn’t explain the false claims that “most” protesters are “peaceful” when they are not.
“If it bleeds, it leads” applies only if the perpetrators are not any of the groups favored by the media. As Wikileaks shows: The media get their marching orders from the Obama White House. Obama pretends to call for unity, while George Soros funds and organizes these riots.
Nor do the media ask either Clinton or Obama to disavow their supporters who are calling for the assassination of President-elect Trump.
Nor do they ask Jack Dorsey how Twitter’s “community standards” can possibly allow for a hashtag labeled assassinate Trump.
The more peaceful losers have taken to wearing safety pins to illustrate their solidarity with those they falsely believe are no longer safe in our country because of Trump’s incipient presidency–safety pins to show that the aggrieved will find a “safe space” in the company of those wearing the pins. This is a start, they claim, towards bringing “unity” and “love” to our country. They still don’t get it.
It’s an egregious affront to the millions of people who voted for Trump to assume that they’re all racists, homophobes, sexists, xenophobes, and bigots. Consider this article, written by a Muslim woman who’s supposed to be writing about “home” and “family” issues. (One thing we’ve learned over the past 8 years is that progressives will insert politics and their own particular propaganda anywhere they can, and they will also assume that their opinions are normal and yours, if they differ, are abnormal if not outright wrong and evil.)
This is what parents have done in the darkest chapters of our country’s history. We raise our heads. We draw our allies closer. Wefind ways to survive and protect the ones we love.
And we also level with our children — no matter how much we want to shelter them from ugly truths.
It’s OK to tell them there are still millions of sexist and racist people. And that many of our fellow countrymen still promote those ugly ideas. We have to be able to acknowledge and recognize the depth of our country’s racism and sexism. It’s OK to admit that you misjudged the character of the country. …
All this because some 60 MILLION people chose not to vote for Hillary Clinton, the most corrupt individual ever to run for the presidency. All those millions must be sexist, racist and not included in the universe of normal “parents.”
Trump supporters should take to wearing diaper pins, to show what they think of these crybabies who can’t accept that their corrupt candidate lost the election.
Or maybe they should wear tiny violins. Hillary’s fans insist on being sore losers and whiners, so return the favor. Wear the world’s smallest violins. Make a statement.
Playing a sad song for you losers.
Get over it. Get over yourselves. Educate yourselves.
Take the time to listen to the people who voted for Trump. Listen and learn. Stop bullying and labeling. Stop being shallow.
Wearing a pin, shouting slogans. So easy. Hardly takes any effort at all.
So much harder: Trying to understand all of your fellow citizens instead of stereotyping them, placing them into little pigeon holes where you don’t actually have to deal with them. Insulting them! Hardly a way to foster unity and love. Guess what?
Trump supporters are your co-workers, your fellow students, your teachers, your auto mechanics, your store clerks, your nurses, your doctors … In fact, they’re EVERYWHERE.
Take a look and consider.
Trump supporters are not racists. They’re not sexists. They’re not homophobes. They’re not xenophobes. They’re not bigots. They’re simply people who believe in the rule of law and the Constitution and do NOT believe in the “fundamental transformation of America” into a communist/socialist state where wealth is redistributed and our sovereignty is sacrificed to rule by a global elite.
It’s time for Donald J. Trump, our 45th president, to
fundamentally restore the United States of America.
