I have to admit. I am really getting over the anti-Trump sentiment going around at the moment. Don’t get me wrong, I believe he’s not the sharpest tool in the shed and also pretty sexist and derogatory of almost every type of person that is not like himself and also someone with some pretty whack policies. However, what I find most entertaining is the lashing out at people who are not on the same bandwagon.
It is interesting to see how so many people are ostracising others just because they don’t hate Trump as much as they do. In my humble and certainly not expert opinion, this makes you just as bad.
Trump lives to outcast members of society that do not fit into his very narrow-minded list of conditions that make a particular type of person valuable. Are we not being just as bad by severely putting down people whose values don’t align with ours?
The sentiments I hear I often find disgusting like when people say a Trump voter must be homophobic and sexist, derogatory and racist. You should be ashamed of yourselves. The extremely high number of people who voted for Trump are predominantly good people. They voted for someone who they felt could do a better job of what is most important to them. They are not bad people because they ignored his nasty remarks and chose to vote for someone who they believed will give them their jobs back and create a future for their children. A critic will say this won’t happen but these voters were opportunists and they were voting against what had not been working for them for eight years.
The above is comparable with saying that voting for Clinton (a continuation of the Obama administration) means that you justify the beheading of James Foley by the Islamic State. The government at that time chose not to pay the ransom or trade off hostages to save them. They even enforced their law so proudly that would not let the family raise the ransom either by telling them they will be prosecuted for funding terrorism. The $123 million ransom sounds impossible but I wouldn’t have discounted many Hollywood celebrities happily giving funds to attribute their legacy to the releasing of hostage held for two years (save the world and all that). Ironically, after these beheadings, the law was eased to allow families to discreetly pay ransoms in similar situations to those of James Foley’s. A bit late after he’d dead right?
You’re probably thinking “well, that’s just extreme to think that because I call myself a Democrat I support the brutal beheadings of hostages?” Well yourself, listen to your own rhetoric. I repeat, VOTING FOR TRUMP DOES NOT MAKE PEOPLE RACIST BIGOTS.
I have had enough of listening to the blatant put downs of good people who do their best to put forward their point of view as much as the others. Those who are the perpetrators, your behaviour is unacceptable.
And before you get too carried away, I’m not a racist, sexist, homophobic, islamophobic, democratiphobic, everyonewhoisnotmeaphobic bigot. I didn’t like any of them. In fact, I don’t even like the draconian system they still continue to operate in and the thing I find surprising is how either candidate even managed to get the microphone in the first place so place your focus on changing the system, not the people who were merely smart enough to make the most of it.
