A VIEW OF THE SOUTH FROM OUTSIDERS

Southerners are Trained to be the Helpers, an article posted yesterday on al.com, authored by Leslie Anne Tarabella highlights the outside media’s, particularly the left-wing media’s surprise at how people are helping people in southeast Texas and Louisiana during and in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

According to this article, Norah O’Donnell, a CBS correspondent, originally from Texas, was not surprised by the overwhelming kindness being shown by the Texas people and even those living outside the state of Texas who are rushing up to help anyway they can. However, back in New York City, anchors were marveling at the willingness and bravery of people showing up to help total strangers.

I don’t know whether to be happy or frustrated about this article. It’s no secret that folks outside the south have consistently looked down their noses at the south, although, they don’t hesitate to visit down here to enjoy our food, our weather, and our many tourist attractions.

Liberals, both those from outside the south and from inside the south (we do have liberals down here), have made the south their “whipping boy.” We go to church, listen to country music, watch sports, particularly football, own guns, and vote Republican. While we’re everything the left hates, the left doesn’t hesitate to hurl unfounded accusations at us and direct it’s hate toward us.

Are the likes of Rachel Maddow, Joe Scarborough, Mika Brezinski, Don Lemmon, etc. appalled at what’s going on in southeast Texas and Louisiana. I’m convinced they are. But, but, but, aren’t those people conservatives, Republicans, aren’t they against same-sex marriage? They disliked Obama and put Donald Trump in office. They’re evil people, but here we see them helping each other with factors such as skin color and socio-economic status not on the radar. How can this be?

Houston isn’t the first place where folks have come together in troubled times. Tornado outbreaks are common down south. After one occurs, “men with chainsaws” appear from all over waiting anxiously to get at those fallen limbs. In fact, once in a while, guys with chainsaws have had to be turned away because there were already enough volunteers to get the job done.

As I write this, away from the disaster site, churches, municipalities, and other philanthropic organizations are gathering supplies to send to the devastated areas to help. In the months to come, many trips will be made to southeast Texas where volunteers will continue to work tirelessly to make a difference in people’s lives.

To the liberal media and to liberals, in general, what are you so surprised about? This is normal, this is way we do things down here. Race, religion, skin color, nationality, education level, etc. are non-factors, not even thought about during times like this. And yet, you continue to berate folks like us, folks who voted for President Trump, folks you call racists, bigots, sexists, homophobes, xenophobes, haters, Islamophobic, etc.

Can I expect any of you elitists to change your minds about us after what you have witnessed in Texas? Of course not! You will continue spread your hate and vitriol toward anyone who does not agree with you politically, especially President Trump and his supporters.

How do you folks handle disasters? “Don’t tell us how you do it up north, cause we don’t care.” (From the song, Snowbird Season, written and performed by singer/songwriter, Brent Burns).

UNIMAGINABLE LIBERAL LUNACY

To my readers and followers, I’m writing this on the morning of May 17, 2017 after revelations by the liberal media that: (1) President Trump leaked classified information to the Russians, and (2) President Trump told former FB I Director James Comey that he hoped Comey could end the investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn soon.

I’ve written much about liberal lunacy, but never in my lifetime have I seen a crazier bunch of people and crazier actions that what I’ve witnessed from the Democrats/liberals/progressives or whatever they want to call themselves these days.

With respect to number two above, according to the New York Times, President Trump’s exact words were: “I hope you can let things go.” With respect to number one above, National Security Advisor, H.R. McMaster, who participated in the meeting, has said, “At no time were any intelligence sources or methods discussed, and no military operations were disclosed that were not already known publicly.”

Comey Memo Says Trump Asked Him to End Flynn Investigation

Trump revealed highly classified information to Russian foreign minister and ambassador

The purpose of this article is not to elaborate about the above and the unfounded allegations by the left that President Trump somehow colluded with the Russians to influence the 2016 presidential election. Instead, as a political conservative writer, the left has made my head spin with all their talk of obstruction of justice, national security breaches, and possible impeachment…unimaginable liberal lunacy.

Since late yesterday afternoon (May 16, 2017), I’ve heard the word “impeach” thrown out loosely by those in the media, including Fox News which normally is respectful of conservatives and the conservative point of view. This takes me back to the Clinton presidency when George Stephanopoulos, and ABC news anchor, on the ABC News’ Sunday morning show, “This Week,” uttered the “I” word. People, especially liberals that the former Clinton advisor would say such a word. Now we’re seeing it thrown around with reckless abandon within the last twenty-four hours.

While the left continuously attempted to damage Donald Trump and his family during the campaign for president, the American people have never witnessed anything like the constant bombardment of the Trump administration by the left through the acts of lying, hating, injuring, and property destruction…unimaginable liberal lunacy.

There were rumors going around and maybe some of them were verified, that Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell stated, not in a public forum, that he and certain Republicans were going to do everything in their power to derail the Obama presidency. The liberals “quaked and shaked” over this calling anyone who would not assimilate to the former president’s policies a racist. But no sooner had the main talking head of every major media outlet announced that Donald Trump had been elected president, the left immediately let everyone know (via the public forum) that they were going to fight tooth and nail against anything the new administration attempted to do. The word, “Resist,” was used from the moment Trump was declared President Elect. It was posted on banners everywhere the left protested. The libs even reminded the rest of us that it was patriotic to dissent and dissent was what they were going to do, never mind that dissent during the Obama administration was considered racist by the left. Even Hillary has gotten on the “Resist” bandwagon by extending the slogan to “Resist, Insist, and Persist.”

Since the inauguration of Donald Trump, and the bombardment from the left has ratcheted up several notches, I’ve told myself repeatedly to get used to it. It’s an established fact that liberals are hypocrites, and don’t care if they are labeled hypocrites. It’s becoming increasingly evident that they not only embellish, but they “out and out” lie, making up their lies out of nowhere. While I have maintained for years that liberals are the real haters, even though they have consistently accused conservatives of being haters. I think everyone is agreement, even the liberals, that they are all-consumed with hate for anyone who does not agree with them politically.

After observing the last four months, and especially the last few days, I have no other choice than to conclude that liberals are “genuine, certified loons.” The lunacy displayed by the left is unimaginable, and while I knew there would be difficulties created by the lunatic liberals in their fight against anything Donald Trump would attempt to do as President of the United States, I never envisioned what is taking place today and will surely continue to take place tomorrow, the next day, and the next.

Having said the above about liberals, I may have some decisions to make soon. Should I disassociate with anyone who is a Democrat/liberal/progressive? No liberal who I know personally or through social media has disavowed the lies, the selective hatred, the destruction of person property, nor the inflicting of bodily injury that have become common, condoned actions of the left. I have chosen to cease being friends with one person who has consistently used social media to spread lies about Donald Trump and his supporters, including those of us who didn’t support Obama. There are more out there. Will I chose to drop friends and associates? I don’t know, but it pains me to think about it. Liberals destroy everything they touch.
