WHINY SNIVELING DEMOCRATS

Leading up to the presidential election held last week (November 8), all Americans were led to believe by the media, both main stream and alternative, that Hillary Clinton was a “shoe-in” to win the 2016 presidential election. Electoral college maps were displayed illustrating Clinton’s easy path to an electoral college victory and Donald Trump’s not so easy path to an electoral college victory.

As someone who wasn’t crazy about Donald Trump and supported other Republican candidates during the nomination process, I was fearful. This country couldn’t take four more years of ultra-left wing rule, and if we four more such years, the United States of America would be totally unrecognizable.

On the morning of the election, I predicted that Donald Trump would win the popular vote and Hillary Clinton would take the electoral college, thus winning the presidency. After all, the crowds at Trump/Pence rallies were much larger than those at Clinton/Kaine rallies. The states of Illinois, New York, and California are responsible for a vast number of electoral college votes. While most of the counties in these states tend to vote Republican, the highly-populated areas of Chicago, New York City, San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Francisco produce enough votes to turn these states blue.

Fast-forward to election night when the election results began to dribble in. It was announced that Trump had to win the states of Florida, Ohio, and North Carolina or he was finished. Losing one of those states would insure a Clinton win. But even if Trump did win those states, I would need to flip at least one traditionally blue state to win. Multiple scenarios were illustrated where each candidate could win 269 electoral votes. Then the tie would have to be broken by a vote in the House of Representatives. Given that the House had a Republican majority, Trump would win.

But it didn’t come to that because Trump was victorious in all three states that were a must for him. Trump was also ahead in the traditionally blue states of Pennsylvania and Michigan with Minnesota going back and forth. Even at this juncture, I didn’t have much hope, even though the talking heads were giving Trump a good chance to win. I didn’t think he would be able to flip a traditionally blue state. But well into the wee hours of the morning, the AP called Pennsylvania for Trump, soon the networks followed suit. Donald Trump had won the presidency.

On TV, the network would show a jubilant Trump headquarters and a woeful Clinton headquarters. On social media, I compared the Clinton supporters to football fans of the University of Georgia in 2008. Alabama, in its second year under head coach, Nick Saban, went to Athens to take on the Georgia Bulldogs who were highly ranked. The Georgia fans were so sure they would be able to mop the floor with Alabama. They even declared the day a “black out” day and all fans were asked to wear black with the team wearing black on black uniforms. Well, guess what happened? Alabama jumped to an early lead in the first half and fended off a second half Georgia rally to win the game in convincing fashion. The TV cameras would show the Georgia fans, and I swear, I have never seen such a pitiful looking group of folks in my life. Clinton supporters reminded me of the Georgia fans.

Once the election results settled in, liberals, who were so smug and nasty to those who didn’t support Obama, had become whiny sniveling Democrats. College students who had, most likely, not been taught American history properly, were too devastated to go to class, much less take tests. So, they asked the heads of their respective institutions of higher learning to allow them to recuperate from such a trauma. And the heads of these institutions gave it to them.

As opposed to retreating to their safe spaces, some whiny sniveling Democrats took to the streets to protest the election results. They were upset that certain vote tallies were showing that Hillary Clinton received more of the popular vote than did Donald Trump. In my observations, it was going back and forth. Thus, the whiny sniveling Democrats were saying that Hillary should be president and would be if not for an obsolete arcane system that had been in place for generations. (I’ll have more on the electoral college in a futures post.) Whiny sniveling Democrats, I have news for you. We are a nation of laws, even Obama has said that once or twice.

In his acceptance speech, President Elect, Donald Trump, called for unity and indicated that he would be a president to all the people. He further indicated that he was aware that while many didn’t support him, he would be their president. Subsequently, social media, particularly Facebook, exploded with all these memes calling for unity. Some Republicans were expressing empathy with whiny sniveling Democrats, because they knew how devastating it was for them to lose.

I didn’t call for unity, nor did I express empathy with the whiny sniveling Democrats. Instead, I pointed out how those same whiny sniveling Democrats treated Republicans four and eight years ago. They told us that we lost and to get over it. They also told us that they didn’t care what we thought, they were going to do what they wanted to do.

Thus, I have no sympathy for whiny sniveling Democrats. They can deal with things just like we did four and eight years ago.

INSTEAD OF BEING TOO SERIOUS, CAN’T WE LAUGH?

A few days ago, a link to an article from some liberal feminist website appeared on my Facebook news feed. In the article a black woman was outlining the trials and tribulations of being black. She didn’t grown up in the ghetto living in a three room house with 6 siblings, all being raised by a single mother. Instead, she grew up in a middle class neighborhood with a Mom, Dad, and a swimming pool. She attended good secondary schools and received a scholarship to Harvard. Everything had fallen into place in her life, including marriage and career. Yet, she was griping about racism and white privilege.

It seems as though when someone would ask her where she was going to college and she answered, “Harvard,” folks would ask her, “Is that the one in Massachusetts?” She further observed that white people weren’t getting this type of treatment.

In addition to the above, she claimed that a high school algebra teacher indicated that she was the only “spook” in the class. She also described an incident where a black classmate was accepted to UCLA. A white student, who was rejected indicated that the black student must have gotten in unfairly because of affirmative action. If there was ever a good reason for repealing affirmative action policies, which are discriminatory to minorities, this is one.

I grew up in Cullman, Alabama and currently live in the greater Birmingham, Alabama area. I am somewhat skeptical about this woman’s claims because in this area, being the hotbed of racism, according to the mainstream media and the left, the stuff she’s claiming was said to her and about her just isn’t said where the person talked about can hear it. I’ve heard things said in private, but not to a person’s face. I can only remember a few times when I heard the word, “spook,” said while referring to blacks and that was a long time ago.

I realize some things can get annoying. I have a friend from up north who thinks all southerners eat grits three times a day, when in fact, I’m not a big grits eater at all. For me to enjoy them, they have to be “dressed up,” with items such as shrimp, cheese, smoked sausage, and other good stuff. If they’re on my breakfast plate, I’ll eat one or two bites, but that’s about it. If we’re in a restaurant and a grits entre is on the menu, she will ask me if I’m going to order than. One time at a breakfast buffet, she asked me, “Are you getting grits?” This annoys me, but like Jesus said in First Peter, you should accept what was said, forgive, and not retaliate. In fact, this is something that’s really laughable.

A few weeks ago, I was sitting in the waiting room of the Express Oil Change close to my home. I was in there with an elderly gentleman and another lady who looked to be in her twenties or early thirties. ESPN was on the tube, and they were talking about Alabama’s game with Southern Cal that was coming up the next day. The gentleman said to me and the other lady, I know y’all aren’t happy about football season starting because and that would be all we were going to hear about for the next 4-1/2 months. I replied to him, “Oh contraire. I’m an Alabama alum, a season ticket holder, and own and manage an Alabama sports information website. I gave him a business card and invited him to visit my site. He then asked me if this was a clothing site. I explained the site to him and even showed it to him on my phone. He was obviously surprised that a woman would be well-versed in football. It was a fun thing to see the surprised look on his face and I laughed about it. However, after telling a few of my women friends about this, they were shocked and considered the old gentleman a sexist.

Why not be glad and enjoy the surprised look on someone’s face when you don’t fit in the square hole, to which they think you belong. In fact, I get a lot of surprised looks from guys when I tell them about my website. Some left wing feminists probably think I should get my nose out of joint and act offended. Now why would I do that, I want everyone with whom I speak to visit my Alabama sports website, make it their homepage, and click on the ads.

By getting puffed up and wearing her feelings on her sleeve every time something with a racial connotation is said to her by folks who are surprised that she doesn’t fit the stereotype they had in their heads for blacks, she is masking incidents of true and hurtful racism, and they are out there, that should be dealt with and corrected.

This particular woman who wrote this article has a good life. She should enjoy it and enjoy to a certain extent surprising folks with her outstanding credentials. I did note that she is a native of Los Angeles. Well, maybe folks in in the liberal city of Los Angeles act in the manner she describes, but we don’t act like that here in Alabama. We also know where Harvard is. Guess in Los Angeles, they don’t.
