You got what you wanted. The Democrats you voted for won. Maybe you did even better than that and instead of an old school lefty you backed one of the insurgents or neo-socialist whack jobs that liberal America is so enamored with. The media told you that Tuesday’s election was a referendum on the Trump administration. You felt good when it was over, but even though his party lost the House and you can sniff impeachment in the air you’re still not satisfied. How can you revolt against Trump for all the terrible things he’s done?
Trump created a new firestorm over what he did or didn’t say about rocks and rifles and border troops. On one side our commander-in-chief is determined to prevent a flood of Latin American nationals from entering the country on their own terms. On the other we have Democrats who insist that the newest horde consists of people desperate for help who should enter on his party’s very liberal conditions. What happens when people get hurt and this turns ugly?
White males shouldn’t be dammed for working, paying taxes, creating jobs, and standing up for this country and against far left Democratic ideology, but that’s where Democrats have brought us. Now that we are the worst domestic enemies in America it’s only going to get worse.
Politicians frequently tell us what we believe and what we stand for. Often their remarks are preceded by something like “this is who we are” or “this is not who we are.” What they really mean is “this is how you should think.” The tragedy at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh yesterday gave us examples of each. A few stand out to unequivocally show what “this is not who we are” means.
Can we politely agree that political losers don’t have any reason to be civil? That includes minority House Democrats who signed a commitment yet play by their own unique set of civility rules that don’t place outright hostility and disrespect off limits, especially when they are directed at the president.
