“The Fox News Decision Desk has called Pennsylvania for Donald Trump. This means that Donald Trump will be the forty-fifth President of the United States.”
Those were the words of Fox News Anchor, Bret Baier, in the wee hours of the morning on November 9, 2016 telling Fox News viewers of the Trump win.
As a reserved person, I didn’t jump up and down, I didn’t scream. Instead, I smiled and prayed a short prayer to God, thanking him for putting Donald Trump as the next leader of our country. God is in control and he puts kings in power and he strips kings of power. Those are the words that were used in Biblical times, but of course today, the leaders of the many countries on the planet have different names for their leaders. Here in the United States, we call our leader, President.
I continued to listen to the commentary and flipped to different channels, laughing to myself at the commentators of CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, and CBS. They were all so solemn, wondering how a Trump win could possibly have taken place.
In my mind, I was thinking about all the things that worried me when Obama and the Democrats had hold of this nation. I worried about being able to own firearms, I worried about how the Obama administration had treated Israel, I worried about the Iran nuclear deal, and how the Iranians were violating the stipulations and pursuing nuclear weapons. I also worried what a continuation of the Obama administration would have on businesses, our job creators. In the liberal quest to inflict pain upon those who sign our paychecks, would more people lose their jobs and would the prices of their goods and services increase. The Middle East is in ruins and ISIS has vowed to destroy the United States of America with Obama and the Democrats not seeming to care. During the eight years of Obama, I worried about my own personal situation. My health insurance premiums had sky-rocketed to the point that they were within a few dollars of my house payment. If we were to go to a single-payer healthcare system where the government had total control over our bodies, would I be able to get the health care I needed or would they give me pills and let me die. Maybe that wouldn’t be so bad. If a continuation of the Obama administration implemented major distribution of wealth programs, would I even had money to live? As a small business owner who is trying to “make it,” would I also be subjected to the many punishments a Hillary Clinton administration would certainly inflict on private businesses. As a result of not having to worry about the items I mentioned above, a burden was lifted off of me.
As I continued watching the election results, I remembered something Rush Limbaugh said a long time ago. Rush said that liberals are at their craziest when they are out of power. And as of the election results, they are certainly out of power.
Liberals/Democrats/progressives, or whatever they want to call themselves, accuse conservatives of being haters, racists, misogynists, xenophobes, homophobes, etc. If you disagreed with Obama’s policies, you were a hater, a racist, and many other things. If you were against illegal immigration, you were a xenophobe and a racist, if you believed that marriage should be between one man and one woman, you were a homophobe.
I’ve expressed in writing many times that it’s the liberals/Democrats/progressives who are the real haters, the real racists, the real bigots, etc. And if you ever want to enrage a liberal, just turn it around on them. They can’t take it.
We all know about the riots, the whining, the threats, etc. made by liberals after the Trump win. We’ve experienced nothing but hatred from the “tolerant” left. I’ve been on many liberal threads and I can tell you that these people are crazy, they’re delusional, and they’re demented. Some of the posts I’ve read are scary beyond the pale.
Yes, there was expressions of concern and maybe even some comments and statements that weren’t in the best of taste when Obama was elected in 2008 and then re-elected in 2012. But nothing any conservatives could say during the Obama years can compare with the vitriolic hate that the left has expressed, not only for Donald Trump, but for conservatives, white people, straight people, and Christians. Even white liberals are going after their white conservative counterparts. There was not one liberal friend or acquaintance of mine who would denounce the “Rape Melania” sign that was displayed by protestors outside of Trump Tower in New York after I denounced an improper comment that was made by a conservative.
Monday and Tuesday of this week, I spend several hours monitoring some liberal threads. In one, I chose to comment. Because of that comment, I was called the usual and was attacked because of my skin color (my skin color is white and so was the person who attacked me because of it), my sexual orientation, my religious beliefs, my views on the issues, and of all things, where I live and have lived all my life. Talk about tolerance!
On another thread, President Elect Trump was called unspeakable names and what was said about God took my breath away. It was horrible.
Folks, we’re going to have to get used to this. We’re going to have to brush it off and continue to push policies that will make America great again. Because I am a political writer, I have to explore these areas and I have to see this stuff, even though at times, it does upset me. Disagreements on the issues are expected and welcomed by most of us. Yes, let’s have a discussion on Obamacare. Let’s discuss the fine points of the Iran nuclear agreement. Let’s have a discussion on the pros and cons of gun control and our foreign policy. This is what we Americans are all about, This is what made this country great.
What we have become, though, is not good. The left refuses to discuss pertinent issues while focusing on how horrible America and conservatives are. All they want to talk about is racism, misogyny, homophobia, xenophobia, bigotry, etc. Maybe if we were able to discuss the issues I cited in the previous paragraph on an adult level, racism, misogyny, homophobia, xenophobia, and bigotry would greatly diminish. But as long as we have the left doing little else but hurling those accusations at anyone who dares not tow their line, we’re facing an uphill battle in making this country great again. Uphill battle or not, I believe that we can do it.
Liberals are doing everything they can to disrupt what has always been a peaceful transition of power after presidential elections. They’re currently in the process of recounting votes in certain states where they were certain Hillary Clinton would take. They’ve also promised to protest at Trump’s inauguration. They’re going to make life in American as miserable as possible for every man, woman, and child in this country. White folks will be vehemently attacked, conservatives will be vehemently attacked, heterosexuals will be vehemently attacked, Christians will be vehemently attacked, gun owners will be attacked. If you’re a white deplorable uneducated redneck, you’re going to be attacked. It’s going to be a rough ride.
