THE ROY MOORE DELIMMA

Yesterday, November 9, 2017, the Washington Post ran a story where a woman claims that Alabama Senate candidate, Roy Moore, a Republican, initiated a sexual encounter with her when she was fourteen and he was thirty-two. The woman’s name is Leigh Corfman. Three other women interviewed by the Washington Post in recent weeks say that candidate Moore pursued them when they were between the ages of sixteen and eighteen, but none of these women say that Moore forced them into any sort of relationship or sexual contact.

The senatorial candidate has denied the allegations and alleges this is a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the left-leaning Washington Post.

As soon as I read this, I knew the candidate’s haters were going to come out of the woodwork. Even though Alabama is a Republican/conservative stronghold, liberals do live here and yes, they are liars, hypocrites, haters, and bigots in the same manner as Democrats throughout the nation.

Let’s assume first that Judge Moore did commit this heinous act. Everyone except a few “fringe” believe that the candidate should step down. Someone with this type of character and past does not belong in the United States Senate, or any public service capacity for that matter.

I’m a Christian which means I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who suffered and died, taking on my sins and the sins of the world, and was resurrected from the dead, and now sits at the right hand of God the Father, Almighty. According to one of my Bible Study teachers, it doesn’t mean that I don’t sin, but it means that I hopefully sin less.

As a committed conservative and yes, Republican, I’ve often thought about what I would do if faced with the choice of choosing to vote for a candidate who shared my political views, but who was severely lacking in character, or choosing one who was diametrically opposite to me regarding current political issues. Judge Moore’s opponent, Doug Jones, is a liberal Democrat who aligns with the DNC on all issues, including abortion and believes that a woman has the right to kill her unborn baby right up until the time of birth. Once the baby has traveled through the birth canal, he’s an advocate for that baby’s life, but not before.  His values are not my values, and I believe having him in the Senate could jeopardize the Trump presidency and subvert the path we’re currently on for making America great again.

The election of Doug Jones will narrow the Republican Senate majority. Then Senate has already killed the repeal and replace of Obamacare and threatens to kill much needed tax reform. These huge pieces of legislation have direct effects on every man, woman, and child in this country. Without these reforms many, many Americans will be damaged extensively. Having Doug Jones in the Senate spell disaster for the American people.

I don’t’ know. I can’t possibly solve this issue myself. At times like this, I need the Bible, I need Jesus, I need direction that can only come from God. “Seek ye first the Kingdom of heaven.” God is in control, and God will give you direction if you sincerely ask for that direction and have it in your heart to follow his direction. I need God and so do you.

Having said the above with all sincerity, I’m now flipping to the facts. Judge Roy Moore has been accused of having inappropriate behavior with a fourteen-year-old girl in 1979. He denies the allegations. It’s the Judge’s word against that of the Washington Post and the alleged victim. Will we know the truth before election day, December 12? Probably not, since there’s so little time left.

In the United States of American you are innocent until proven guilty, unless you are a conservative and one who disagrees with the ideology of liberalism. If the left thinks you’re guilty, you’re guilty. Even if the left thinks you’re not guilty, but wants you to be guilty, you are still guilty.

The left has rushed to judgement many times, and has been wrong most of those times. Treyvon Martin, “hands up, don’t shoot,” Michael Brown, the Duke Lacrosse team members, the Cambridge police, Freddie Gray, Richard Jewel, etc. all serve as examples of the left being wrong. In their rush to judgement, the left has ruined the lives of many. If the allegations against Judge Moore and true, then he deserves to live the rest of his life out as a miserable old man who hopefully will  repent and get his heart in the right place. If the allegations are not true, he deserves a shot at becoming a Senator from Alabama and continuing his career of public service.

The Democrats, though, are going to do their best to disparage Judge Roy Moore and ruin his life, even if he is exonerated. Do the Democrats care if they ruin someone’s life, even if ruining a life is unjustified? Of course not. They’re all about hate and the ruining of lives, especially those who do not toe their leftist line.

In addition to the accusation against Judge Moore, not, at present provable, the timing of the Washington Post article is questionable. Roy Moore has been in the public light many times before his current run for the Senate. Why have these allegations not come out sooner? Ms. Corfman claims that she was scared to come out with her story until now? Until now, just before a very big Senate race that could play a large role in shaping the future of the United States?  Until now, when this country is more ideologically divided than ever, and a sitting president is the target of more hate and vitriol than any of us have ever witnessed in our lifetimes, she decides to tell her story?

In addition to Ms. Corfman, two other women have stated that candidate Moore pursued them romantically when they were teenagers and Moore was thirty. These women, unlike Ms. Corfman indicated that no inappropriate touching was involved when they were on dates with the Judge. One of these women is Debbie Wesson Gibson who says she was seventeen when Moore romantically pursued her. Ms. Gibson is a Democrat and a supporter of Doug Jones. Her picture with former Vice President Joe Biden is currently making the social media rounds. This picture was taken a few weeks ago when the Vice President was in Birmingham stumping for Democrat candidate, Doug Jones. Now, allegations, a month before the election, are being circulated about Roy Moore. How did this come together, all wrapped up in a neat little package?

The story here is that Democrats are liars who have no remorse about lying to get what they want. If those lies are determined to be lies in the weeks and months ahead, who cares, as long as their desired results are achieved. Do they care if their prize was predicated on lies? Of course not, Democrats have no sense of decency. Do they care if their lies ruin the lives of others? They don’t.

Are we still living in the “land of the free and the home of the brave?”

LYING WITH A PURPOSE

Trial lawyers, while trying cases, often utilize a slick trick to sway a jury. An attorney for one side will ask the witness an improper question, knowing the opposing attorney will object and the objection will be sustained. Even though the witness was not allowed to answer the question, the jury heard the question and can’t possibly un-hear it.

Democrats, in a concerted effort to destroy the Donald Trump presidency constantly lie about the president, his administration, Republicans in general, and Trump supporters. They lie, they know they’re lying, and they don’t care that they’re lying.

Not all citizens are as politically astute as I am, and my readers are. They’re clueless when it comes to current events and politics, only getting what little knowledge they have from snippets of news they hear in passing. They may watch part of the evening network news before tuning in to their favorite sitcoms and dramas on TV after eating dinner. Then it’s off to bed. Rinse and repeat.

It’s these folks that liberals are targeting. The liberal media, including the networks, CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Boston Globe, etc. run a story that everyone knows is a lie. So, what, if it’s a lie. They want the folks I described above to hear it or read it and think,” Gee, this president is an awful person to say the things he says.” Two or three days later the truth come out that the president didn’t actually say that, or what he said was taken out of context. A retraction may be run correcting the record, or not.

The Democrats have achieved their goal. People like I described above heard the original story, but there’s a good chance they didn’t hear the truth.

Like I’ve been saying for years, Democrats don’t care about the truth. They tell lies and they know they are telling lies. It’s okay, though. They have each other’s’ backs. They have their own little lying clique. No one inside the clique is going to call them out or say the false story should not have been run.

Yes, conservatives and conservative media are going to call them out. Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, Tucker Carlson, all the way down to Nancy Graham are going to investigate and obtain the truth. But how many of the people I described above follow Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, Tucker Carlson, etc? Virtually none. And because Rush, Sean, Bill, Tucker, etc. are continuous targets for the left to direct their venomous hate, most of the above folks would rather be struck dead than spend even a few minutes listening the these talking heads. They have no interest in pursuing other angles, it’s time for “Dancing with the Stars.”

DEMOCRATS WHO CELEBRATE THE BIRTHDAY of MARTIN LUTHER KING ARE HYPOCRITES

With all this white privilege garbage being bantered around by the left and something new added to the definition of racism almost on an hourly basis, I was thinking about the words of Dr. Martin Luther King in his “I Have a Dream” speech.

While we’re five months away from celebrating Dr. King’s birthday, I can’t help but be saddened at how far away we have deviated from his dream.

In reviewing the text of his speech, I was searching for the following: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” “I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave-owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.”

In searching for the above, I also came across this: “We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protests to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again, we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force. The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to distrust all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny. They have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn our back.”

All my life, I have interpreted these words of Dr. King and the Civil Rights movement in its entirety to have as a goal a near color-blind society, where skin color is likened to hair color or eye color, used predominantly for identification purposes. Having said the above we can’t ignore the facts that the disease, sickle cell anemia strikes only blacks and melanoma/skin cancer strikes mostly whites.

Approximately 44 years after modern day civil rights legislation was passed, the United States of America elected its first black president, Barack Obama. I didn’t like Barack Obama, and I still don’t. He’s a Democrat and I don’t identify with Democrat party politics. I oppose the major expansion of government entitlement programs, including the government takeover of one-sixth of the nation’s economy (the health care industry). I oppose punishing and demonizing the wealthiest Americans just because they are rich, and don’t adhere to the Democrat theory that anybody who has money obtained it off the backs of those less fortunate. I believe that it is necessary to have a strong military to protect American citizens from the invasion of foreign regimes intent on destroying this country. I believe that it is necessary that Americans have the right to bear firearms in order to protect themselves from those who intend to harm. I could, of course, write more, but I’ll end it here.

But the fact that I, along with millions of others, didn’t like Barack Obama, doesn’t change the fact that in 2008, we elected a black president. This event should have signaled to the nation and the rest of the world that we’ve achieved a society in which skin color, with few exceptions, holds little more importance than hair color or eye color.

With blacks making up only 13% of the United States population, Barack Obama had to have some white votes to get elected.

After the 2008 election, and to some extent after the 2012 election, Obama supporters/Democrats demonstrated their hatred for those who didn’t march in lockstep with their policies regarding how this country should be governed. The typical Democrat rant went as follows: “You lost, get over it. We’re in charge now, we’re going to do what we’re going to do. We don’t care what you think.”

Instead of being proud that the nation’s first black president was a Democrat, and looking forward to the probability that their dreams of a socialist utopia would be closer to becoming a reality, Democrats/liberals/progressives displayed their fangs and claws in numerous attempts to “beat down” those on the other side of the political spectrum.

To be labeled a racist during this time was the worst thing that could happen to a person, something from which he or she would never survive. Thus, everyone took extreme measures to avoid having this label slapped on them.

Unlike former Democrat presidential candidate, Jesse Jackson, Barack Obama, during his campaign made it clear that the United States would no longer be a red country or a blue country. Instead it would be a purple country. He was going to be a president to all Americans. And that’s how it should be.

There was one little thing wrong with this. He didn’t mean it. From early on in his presidency, Obama flaunted his racism and disdain for those who weren’t in lockstep with what he wanted to accomplish as president. While most presidents, including previous president, George W. Bush, recognized that in America, we have the right to disagree with our leaders and the right to express those disagreements, Barack Obama vehemently resented all those who were against his governing philosophies.

The hate of Barack Obama toward his political opponents, gave license to the left wingers of this nation to continue the hate toward those who failed to toe their political line. Thus, anyone who didn’t go along with Obama and the Democrats was a racist. I witnessed the plight of many of my conservative friends attempting to explain to liberals that their differences with former President Barack Obama had nothing to do with his skin color, but where he stood on the issues facing this country. To these explanations, the left was deaf, dumb, and blind, continuing to hammer home that anyone who didn’t like or agree with Obama had to be a racist. Seeing that explaining to liberals about why I didn’t care for Obama was an exercise in futility, I simply referred them to this website and challenged them to find anywhere in any of my writings where I belittled Barack Obama because of the color of his skin. Of course, there are not any.

Even after visiting my blog and admitting there’s nothing in my writings where I’ve besmirched BHO with regard to his skin color, liberals will still accuse you of being a racist. They’ll say you’ve used certain “buzz” or “code” words that connect to racism. When a liberal does attempt to do this, I let him or her know that our conversation is now over. I don’t deal with “buzz words.” End of conversation.

Since the election of Donald Trump to the presidency and his subsequent inauguration, the left has been on a tear regarding not only racism, but sexism, homophobia, and xenophobia. And I understand that misogyny is the new term for sexism. White people are to acknowledge they are privileged because they are white and can’t possibly comment or have any opinions where race is concerned because they haven’t experienced the “black experience” or “the people of color” experience. It sounds like we’re on a collision course to punish white people, particularly white men and render whites powerless. Liberals seem to think that’s okay.

Tell a liberal that you don’t see things in terms of race and seek to judge people by the content of their character as opposed to the color of their skin and see what all things will get said to you. Here’s an example: “Nancy Graham do you feel better now telling us all you don’t see color? You’re a liar and that should make you feel kinda awful. Because you are awful.”

In recent months, we have witnessed a wave of accepted segregation from the left. According to the Washington Examiner, http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/black-lives-matter-group-bans-all-other-races-from-their-open-meeting/article/2619392, The Black Lives Matter organization based in Philadelphia created a public event on Facebook for a gathering they were hosting which they marketed as an “open meeting.” As many know, the supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement are very diverse. However, for the Philly chapter of BLM, their meetings and events are strictly “black spaces” according to their FB event announcement. When pressed via Twitter, the official account of BLM Philly explained that anyone is free to support the movement from a distance, however, their meetings are only for black people. They even cited Malcom X, the human’s rights activist who advocated for segregation.

And remember, Evergreen College, that liberal bastion in Washington state? The students sponsored a “Day of Absence & Day of Presence demonstration for which white students, faculty, and staff were asked to leave campus for one day. Biology professor, Bret Weinstein was berated by dozens of students outside his classroom on the day of the event for refusing to participate in the event.

It seems that liberals are poised to steer the American culture toward a culture that supports segregation and judging people by the color of their skin. It’s perfectly okay to call someone a racist, or for that matter, a misogynist, a xenophobe, homophobe, etc. with no concrete proof. We’re liberals, we’re superior, we make up definitions to suit our needs of the moment, and if we say you’re something, then you are. The end.

Dr. King said in “I Have a Dream,” “We must not allow our creative protests to degenerate into physical violence.” Well, so much for that. According to liberals, it is okay to riot, destroy property, injure, or even assassinate or murder when something happens that we don’t like.

“The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to distrust all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny. They have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom.” Again, so much for Dr. King’s dream. We’re now told that all white people, especially white males are evil. Even those who stand with us in our efforts to destroy property, injure, maim, and even kill, are not to be allowed in our inner circles. They must realize their evilness and submit to whatever punishments we wish to inflict upon them.

“We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead.” This instruction from Dr. Martin Luther King is obviously out the window with the left advocating separation of the races and the banning of whites from anything and everything involving “people of color.”

And yet, in five months when Martin Luther King’s birthday rolls around, we’ll be treated to a sickening display of liberal leaders, including Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Sheila Jackson Lee, Maxine Waters, Corey Booker, Keith Ellison, etc. singing the praises of Dr. King. I have a couple of close friends who are black and liberal. They will certainly attend the many local celebrations held in the Birmingham area.

The folks I mentioned above, including my friends are hypocrites, yes hypocrites. If you support what’s currently taking place in this nation with respect to race, you’re a hypocrite. You’re no better than George Wallace in his early years as governor of Alabama. You’re no better than Birmingham Police Commissioner, Bull Conner, of firehose and police dog fame. In fact, you exist on the same plane as the Ku Klux Klan. How can you even celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday when you’re an advocate of today’s racial politics?

Wait! I know! You’re liberals, you have no scruples, no sense of fairness, no sense of wrong and right. It’s whatever suits your needs of the moment and gives you a euphoric complex of superiority. And anyone who dares to disagree with you…well, we know about that.

LIBERAL HATE TAKES PRECEDENCE

On April 17, 2017, liberal New York Times columnist, Alan Rappeport, wrote an article entitled,Trump’s Unreleased Taxes Threaten Yet Another Campaign Promise. The following is a critique of portions of that article where I illustrate how liberals are so consumed with hatred for Donald Trump, his family, his administration, and his supporters that their hate takes precedence over everything else in their universe.

Mr. Rappeport writes that President Trump’s promise to enact a sweeping overhaul of the tax code is in serious jeopardy nearly 100 days into his tenure, and his refusal to release his tax returns is emerging as a central hurdle to another faltering campaign promise.

The president’s press secretary, Sean Spicer, has indicated that Mr. Trump has no intentions of releasing his tax returns to the public. While I am certainly aware that it has been custom and practice for presidents to make their tax returns available to the public, it is not a constitutional requirement that presidents or presidential candidates do so. This is something that liberals cannot seem to comprehend. Moreover, since they cannot seem to distinguish between an actual requirement and something that is done out of courtesy, I have my doubts that any liberal is capable of reviewing a tax return and understanding it.

Because the president is not releasing his tax returns, Democrats are uniting around a pledge not to cooperate on any rewriting of the tax code unless they know specifically how that revision would benefit the president and his family.
Senate Minority Leader, Chucky Schumer, has pointed out that the president has significant conflicts of interest on issues such as taxation of the real estate industry and the elimination of the estate tax. It’s in his own self-interest, says Schumer.

According to Rappeport, more than 100,000 of Trump’s critics took to the streets over the weekend before the deadline to file tax returns and pay taxes, demanding that the president’s tax returns be released. The protesters say that tax legislation could be a plot by Donald Trump to get even richer.

Ezra Levin, a member of the Tax March executive committee, whatever that is, has questioned…”When they talk about tax reform, are they talking about cutting Donald Trump’s taxes by millions of dollars a year?”

Mr. Rappeport, in his article, states that lawmakers to want to pass an overhaul of the tax code that unwittingly enriches the commander and chief and his progeny.

This article informs me that Democrats will be against any sort of tax reform/tax cutting that would benefit the president and his family. It does not matter how much the new tax reform policies might help everyday Americans such as you and me, including middle-class Democrats. It’s obvious that in the eye of liberals, hate takes precedence over anything that might be good for this country or for individual Americans.

The above illustrates overwhelming, beyond the pale hate by liberals/Democrats/progressives or whatever they want to call themselves toward Donald Trump, his family, his administration, and his supporters. Rappeport indicates that Republicans are arguing that Democrats are putting politics ahead of an opportunity to fix a broken tax system. I think that Republicans should shout from the highest mountains that Democrats are so full of hate for anyone who does not toe their line that they are willing to deep-six the needs of the American people because of their deranged, sick hatred.

I want meaningful tax reform, particularly in the area of capital gains taxes. I would also like to see the corporate tax rate cut so that the nation’s businesses can expand and create more jobs. Again, liberals say that they will fight any tax reform measure that would benefit Donald Trump. Their hate takes precedence over everything else.

Well, I don’t care if Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Chucky Schumer, Bill and Hillary Clinton, the Kennedy’s, etc. benefit from tax reform, I just want to benefit from tax reform, and I want the American people, those who pay taxes, to benefit from tax reform.

Because of the seething hate that’s in their hearts for Donald Trump, his family, his administration, and his supporters, liberals will cut off their noses to spite their faces. Just when I think liberals cannot get any more dangerous, they do.

BACK TO RACISM

President Donald Trump was elected President of the United States five months ago. He was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States two and a half months ago. Yet, Democrats still can’t decide why their candidate, Hillary Roddam Clinton, wife of former president, beloved by all Democrats, Bill Clinton, lost.

During the presidential campaign, we heard all sorts of allegations of sexism, or the trendier term, misogyny, against those who did not support the Democrat nominee. Of course, for the eight previous years of Obama, we heard nothing but racism allegations against those who were not supportive of the 44th President of the United States. So, first it is racism for which the right is guilty, then enters candidate Clinton, and it is sexism for which the right is guilty.

I have said this before, and I will say it again. Does anybody focus on issues? It is evident that the Democrats are not focused on issues. Some of them do have enough smarts to know they cannot win on issues, but the rest of the Democrats are too ignorant to focus on the issues. So, there we go. I have called Democrats ignorant, and I am not taking it back. They are ignorant. Notice, I said ignorant, not stupid. If you do not know the difference, look it up in Webster’s.

An article came across my news feed from theintercept.com, a website with which I was not familiar, entitled: Top Democrats are Wrong: Trump Supporters were more Motivated by Racism than Economic Issues. Truth be known, I was not aware that Democrats were even entertaining the idea that their beloved Hillary Clinton lost the President election except for us racist, sexist Republicans.

According to the author of the article, Mehdi Hasan, Bernie Sanders, de facto leader of the Resistance stated, “Some people think that those who voted for Trump are racists, sexists, homophobes and deplorable folks.”

This statement was made at a rally in Boston, alongside socialist/communist Senator, Elizabeth Warren. Can’t believe that Fauxkahontas was silent on this one. Mr. Hasan does not agree with Senators Sanders and Fauxkahontas, I mean Warren. Hasan further indicates that, in the New York Times, three days after the November election, the Vermont Senator claimed that Trump voters were “expressing their fierce opposition to an economic and political system that puts wealthy and corporate interests over their own.”

Mr. Hasan feels that both Sanders and Fauxkahontas, I mean Warren, seem much keener to lay the blame at the feet of the dysfunctional Democratic Party and an ailing economy than at the feet of racist Republican voters. Hasan goes on to state that their deflection is not surprising, nor is their coddling of those who happily embraced an openly xenophobic candidate.

In his article, Hasan says that “He gets it,” and agrees that it is hard to accept that millions of their fellow citizens harbor what political scientists have identified as “racial resentment.” (I have not heard that term before.) He further acknowledges that the reluctance to admit that bigotry, and tolerance of bigotry, is still widespread in society is understandable. Hasan then asks the question, why would senior members of the Democratic leadership want to alienate millions of voters by dismissing them as racist bigots?

What did I get from the above? Some Democrats may be willing to justify Hillary Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump because Democrats are out of touch with middle-class America. With respect to the issues, including the economy, foreign policy, immigration, energy, the environment, and health care, Democrats are diametrically opposite to mainstream America, also known as the fly-over country. However, that is a mighty big but, other Democrats are continuing to hurl accusations of racism, sexism, and whatever else they can throw at those who disagree with them.

I was one of the first pundits to label Democrats/ liberals/progressives or whatever they want to call themselves these days as the “tolerant left.” I am sarcastic. The left is anything but open-minded and tolerant. Later Bill O’Reilly also used that term. Maybe I should have had it copyrighted.

As I have indicated in many of my writings, liberals are the real racists, hypocrites, liars, and bigots. If some left-winger hurls the racism accusation at me, I know that I have won the debate, the argument, or whatever. Liberals change the definition or racism to whatever suits their needs of the moment. If they cannot justify the hurling of other accusations at someone with whom they do not agree, they will resort to racism.

Hasan cites American National Election data and a “plethora” of studies that have concluded that since the start of the 2016 presidential campaign that the race was about race. Philip Klinkner, a political scientist at Hamilton College, and an expert on race relations (that’s what the article said), grabbed headlines last summer when he revealed that the best way to identify a Trump supporter was to ask that person if Obama was a Muslim.  If the person said yes and the person was white, 89% of the time that person would have a higher opinion of Trump than Clinton. So, anyone who thinks Obama is a Muslim and has white skin, probably a racist.

Wow! That’s what I call scientific.

Hasan also indicated that other surveys and polls of Trump voters found “a strong relationship between anti-black attitudes and support for Trump,” with rump supporters being more likely to describe African Americans as criminal, unintelligent, lazy, and violent. Also, Trump voters were most likely to believe that people of color are taking white jobs, and a majority of them rate blacks as less evolved than whites.

My regular readers know that I am from the state of Alabama and currently live in the Birmingham area. Yes, Birmingham, Alabama. I do not hear or observe any of the attitudes or statements that Mr. Hasan makes in the above paragraphs in this, the second half of the second decade of the twenty-first century. These attitudes may have been common in the late sixties/early to mid-seventies. But not now. Alternatively yet, maybe folks up north have these attitudes, but not here in the south.

Because Trump managed to win white votes regardless of age, gender, income, or education, racial identity and attitudes displaced class as the central battleground of American politics as Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders have espoused.

Hasan does cover the question, “how can racial resentment have motivated Trump supporters when so many of them voted for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012?” Klinkner covers that by stating that in 2016, Clinton, unlike Obama, faced a Republican candidate who pushed the buttons of race and nativism in open and explicit ways that John McCain and Mitt Romney were unwilling or unable to do. Did he? I followed the campaign closely, and it did not appear to me that Donald Trump was “pushing buttons of race and nativism in open and explicit ways.” The comments made about Mexicans who crossed the border illegally being criminals and rapists did not appear racist to me, nor did it to most conservatives. Liberals, of course, went ballistic, but what else is new?

So, based on the above notions, which are abstract at best, Mr. Hasan, concludes: “It isn’t the economy. It’s the racism, stupid.” But wait…is Mrs. Clinton not a white woman? Yes, Mrs. Clinton is indeed a white woman, who campaigned on continuing the policies of Barack Obama. So, if the voters, who overwhelmingly voted for Barack Obama were pleased with the direction in which the country was heading, but just did not like Obama because of the color of his skin, they should be ecstatic that someone white was running and was promising to continue Obama-style governance.

Mr. Hasan’s reasoning is substantially flawed. Plus, these studies, which he sites sound bogus to me. Remember, though, Mr. Hasan is a liberal, and liberals do not have to be correct. They just have to say something over and over again until the fact that what they are saying is a lie no longer matters. It is now the truth. Liberals no longer have to be consistent. Being hypocritical is accepted in liberal land.

Are liberals ever going to stop hurling false accusations and those who do not agree with them? We all know the answer to that one. Are we ever going to get liberals to change? Of course not! Then why bother? Because we must continue to stand up for what is right. Standing down and letting the left continue to spout forth their lies and hypocrisies, allows them to win in the end.
