I’ve seen this expression on signs and all over social media. Various people, upset at the election of Donald Trump, have taken to stating that he is not their President. I may touch on the obvious fallacy in this statement, but that is not my purpose in writing this morning. This Monday after the Inauguration my purpose is to discuss the distinct differences between the right and the left.
First, the most obvious. I do not think that in my entire lifetime there has ever been a riot started by or participated in by White Republicans. If someone out there can document one, I will stand corrected. But it is my belief that at no point in time have white Republicans decided that the method by which they should express their dissatisfaction assaulting police officers, and destroying property.
Second, I am fairly certain that no right wing organization has banned or punished members for holding different views. Meanwhile Hollywood, the media, and various left leaning organizations are disparaging, threatening, and boycotting people like Steve Harvey for engaging with Donald Trump or performing at the inauguration.
Trump and Republicans are routinely criticized for dividing the nation by race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. But it is clearly the left that practices identity politics. Take for example the “Women’s March”. Self described feminists who hold a pro-life position were specifically told they were not welcome to participate. As if believing in the preservation of life strips one of their identity as a woman.
In reality, since it is the left that pushes the notion that there is no such thing as gender to begin with, and that a person is whatever they identify as, it strikes me as odd that they would even have a “Women’s March”.
The simple, demonstrable, inarguable fact is that it is the Democrats and their supporters who practice intolerance, bigotry, and racism.
The actual definition of tolerance is putting up with things you don’t like. Republicans do that every day. We are by and large, and as a matter of policy, generally content to let people live their lives. And we genuinely believe in, and practice, freedom of speech. The left does not.
As a member of the left you are not free to speak your mind, or deviate in any way from the party line. If you do you will be shouted down, ostracized, and in some instances physically assaulted. These things simply do not happen at right wing events, rallies, protests, etc. As an example, it has now been documented that the violence at Trump rallies during the campaign was instigated, and orchestrated, by organized left wing groups.
The simple fact is that the left is actually guilty of all the things they claim the right is guilty of. This can be proven through their own statements in writing and on video.
It is my hope that our new President will transcend all of the pettiness and BS, and actually move forward in a manner that will benefit all of us. In fact, I am certain that whatever he does will be intended to benefit all of us. Why? Because Republicans see people as Americans, it is Democrats that see people as hyphenated Americans.
Bottom line snowflake…he is YOUR President, and he will be for at least the next 4 years. So put your clothes back on, put the signs away, stop littering, rioting, and making fools of yourself in public…and let’s get about the business that should be at the top of EVERY American’s priority list.
Making America Great Again!
