A woman that I have known for quite a few years asked me on Facebook yesterday why I have become so political recently. Before I get into how I responded to her, let me just say that I have been reasonably political my entire life. As someone who leans more to the right, I learned during the eight years of Obama’s presidency not to say much. Why you might ask?
What exactly did we learn during Obama’s presidency?
We learned that although the left says that they are proponents of free speech, nothing could be further from the truth. No matter how logical, well thought out and factually correct an argument is, the quickest way to combat it is to immediately call that person a racist, sexist, homophobe, misogynist and islamophobe. This way they never have to counter that well thought out argument with facts.
We also learned that the idea that democrats are the “tolerant” party is a myth. I have never seen a group that was more intolerant of other people’s views in my entire life. Just try to disagree with someone on the left and you’ll see what I mean.
We learned that by combining the previous two paragraphs you have the modern day American left.
So why then have I just now started being more vocal? Here’s why. When Trump became the party’s candidate for President, it seemed like the previous eight years had never ended. As I said to my friend, if you disagreed with Obama and his policies, you were a racist. It wasn’t possible to actually just be able to disagree with them, you just hated minorities. Now Trump comes along and if you support him, you are a racist.
What??? Wait a second. I was a racist because I didn’t like Obama and now I’m a racist because I support Trump? Hmmm…You sensing a predictable sickening pattern here?
Add to this the inability of the left to accept the fact that he is our President, and you have a recipe for disaster. The childish and often times absolutely crazy behavior displayed by the left since the election is legendary. The screaming at the sky, harassing politicians and private citizens for supporting a politician is insane.
So from now on I refuse to sit by and let the left get away with what they believe is their right. The days of bullying, harassing and violence are over. I will not sit idly by and accept the usual tactics from the left. It’s about time the right in this country respond and counter the lies and hypocrisy that the left has been spewing for way too many years.
When did it become a crime in this country to hold an opposing view? When did it become a crime in this country to think that it was ok to call people names because they don’t agree with you?
Since Kavanaugh was nominated the left has become more unhinged than right after the election. They over played their hand this time and it could come back to haunt them.
And that’s why I will not remain silent anymore.
As always, if you are offended by this or don’t like what I have written, I don’t care.
