If there is one thing that many americans have realized by now is that Donald Trump, and those who support him, define certain words such as "FREEDOM" AND "RIGHTS," in a most unusual way. The reason? To give a voice to the IRRATIONAL, BIGOTED, RASCIST,etc., individuals and groups who needed an Outlet and Spokesperson who would lend "RESPECTABILITY" TO THEIR DOCTRINE OF HATE.
In the past, such attitudes were hidden beneath the Trappings of such concepts as "PATRIOTISM" and "RELIGIOUS FAITH." However, these Beliefs were losing their fight against SOCIAL CHANGE, with the gains made by Minority Groups during the 20th Century. Racial, Gender, and Same Sex Organizations fought lengthy battles to achieve Equality of Treatment and Opportunity, and with the aid of LIBERAL/PROGRESSIVE ALLIES, such Goals were coming to pass.
Unfortunately, THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF THE LAST FEW YEARS HAS, TIME AND AGAIN, REFUSED TO STAND UP TO THE FAR RIGHT WING OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, TO THE POINT OF IGNORING THINGS LIKE;
- THE UNCONSTITUTIONAL DENIAL OF A MANDATED HEARING FOR PRESIDENT OBAMAS CHOICE FOR THE VACANCY ON THE SUPREME COURT.
- THE POSSIBLY BOGUS, AND RIGGED ELECTION RESULTS THAT PUT TRUMP IN THE WHITE HOUSE.
(SEE MY ARTICLES ON THE SUBJECT.)
- DONALD TRUMP USING HIS TITLE TO PROMOTE FINANCIAL "GET RICH QUICK SCHEMES" ON THE INTERNET.
When the AMERICAN PEOPLE NEEDED THEM, THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY CHOSE TO DO NOTHING, AND NOW WERE PAYING FOR IT. It is very easy to SOUND ANGRY AND OFFENDED AFTER THE FACT, WHEN THE DAMAGE HAS BEEN DONE.
EXAMPLE: INSTEAD OF FILING SUIT AGAINST THE REPUBLICAN PARTY FOR VIOLATING CONSTITUTIONAL LAW BY REFUSING TO HOLD HEARINGS FOR BARACK OBAMAS CHOICE FOR THE SUPREME COURT, ( MERRICK GARLAND), THEY COMPLAINED AND DID NOTHING. THIS WEEKS "FILIBUSTER" WAS ALL BARK AND NO BITE, IT HAD NO CHANCE OF BEING SUCCESSFUL.
Events like this have allowed The type of AMERICAN CITIZEN DONALD TRUMP CATERS TO, the confidence to push for even more legislation to turn back the clock on...
