Sorry Leftists, You Haven’t Destroyed Trump’s Popularity

Published

on

The left tried as hard as it could to destroy Donald Trump, realizing what a threat he was to their positions because he was so popular and aggressively pursued conservative positions. But even after defeating him in the presidential election, which a majority of Republicans believe was due to fraud, they have made little inroads into ruining his continuing leadership across the country. Despite the vast amounts of media spin — attempting to make it look like no one likes him, that his life is in disarray, he’s a has-been and crooked — it’s not working. 

 

Trump made one of his first handful of major appearances after resuming private life in Sarasota, Florida, on Saturday, and people lined up camping overnight in order to get in. A huge crowd of 20,000 attended. During his speech, Trump called the election “rigged and dishonest.” The left and its comrades in the MSM consistently label anyone as a conspiracy theorist and label their concerns as false who suggest there was significant election fraud. The left dredges up some radical fringe people who have come up with bizarre arguments about the election, and highlight them constantly as if they represent the rest of conservatives.

But it’s not working, because people see through the facade. There was so much election fraud that anyone who did their own research to find it, outside of reading MSM articles, cannot be swayed. The amount of deceit in the MSM over the fraud is causing people to dig their heels in and defend Trump even more. Only people who fail to look outside of the MSM and the top results from what shows up in a biased Google search can continue to blindly accept the propaganda. The number of credible people speaking up on the right, and even people not traditionally on the right who have done their own independent investigations into the election fraud, is huge.  

 

The left hoped by incessantly pointing out Trump’s flaws that the right would desert him. But his flaws were pretty normal, and nothing worse than many other presidents. Sure he likes to exaggerate small details, but it’s part of his personality and he does it regarding things that don’t matter, such as saying he’s everyone’s favorite president. You could point out flaws equally as bad in other presidents; many of them aren’t as widely known due to the lack of the internet and social media in bygone eras. 

 

The MAGA movement was genius and the left hates Trump for it. They don’t actually hate him because he said something crude about women once (many of their far left heroes have said far worse about women), they don’t hate him because the CFO of the Trump Organization may have messed up on taxes, and they don’t hate him because he’s egotistical. They hate him because he’s highly effective. The rest is a disguise to convince conservatives to desert him. Many conservatives have far worse flaws themselves, or have a relative who is a decent American who has those flaws, so they see through the hysteria. 

 

Conservatives love Trump precisely because he exposed those lies in the MSM unlike any previous president, even Ronald Reagan. He popularized the expression “fake news” which polls show worked, hurting the media’s credibility. His supporters aren’t swayed by the spin about him, instead it has the opposite effect, reinforcing their beliefs about the bias. 

 

Left-wing activist prosecutors have been trying to take Trump down, but their efforts are fizzling. After more than two years investigating Trump and his business, all that controversial Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. could come up with was indicting the CFO of the Trump Organization for failing to report fringe benefits he received on his taxes — nothing to do with Trump. Considering the vast resources of Vance’s office, and the fact a good prosecutor can get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich, it’s a sign this is going nowhere. The left will keep hysterically hyping it up, and Vance’s life will be miserable for awhile, but the left’s sick attempts to put Trump in prison are failing. Vance previously attempted to prosecute Trump’s associate Paul Manafort, but a judge threw out the charges. 

 

The left went into hysterics condemning the protest at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, trying to pin the actions of a few violent protesters on Trump, but most people have now heard the full story and seen through the intense spin. The left acted as if the day’s events were similar to an insurrection starting a civil war, but the actions of a handful of people were no more violent than many Antifa and Black Lives Matter protests. Consequently, those “mostly peaceful” protesters aren’t being sentenced to life in prison or the death penalty. The only person sentenced so far pleaded guilty to a single misdemeanor and didn’t even get any jail sentence.

 

Contrast this with the left’s stunning silence about the violence caused by Antifa and Black Lives Matter. Or their silence about BLM activist John Earle Sullivan, who prosecutors say told another individual that he joined the January 6 riot in order to instigate Trump supporters into violence. He was caught on video breaking a window at the Capitol in order to enter through it. During a speech outside the Capitol in 2020, Sullivan said he wanted to burn it down and rip Trump out of office. If Sullivan had not participated that day, urging people to riot so he could make thousands selling the videos to the MSM, would the violence have even happened? 

 

Even if Trump chooses not to run again for president in 2024, he is still a powerful influence in American politics. Republican politicians still covet his endorsement. He may be incredibly effective if he launches a social media platform to rival Facebook and Twitter, and goes further, venturing into traditional broadcast media and competing with other tech giants such as Google. Donald Trump Jr., who is brilliant, is more careful what he says than his father. It doesn’t matter if the left stops his father from running in 2024, Trump Jr. will be just as effective.

Joe Biden Bingo

Here is a tool which could help you to stay tuned on broadcasts featuring our acting president

Published

Even if you caught only snippets of Joe Biden’s recent press conference, you know that his mental decline continues unabated. It’s unlikely that even a handful of Americans watched the event in its entirety. Who would want to waste their time?

What’s occurring is a national travesty, and it is increasingly evident to larger portions of our population that Joe Biden is being abused as an elder, as he abuses others.

Throughout his 365 days in office, Biden has struggled to pronounce a word and then offers a non-sequitur to what he was originally saying. With regularity he tells stories that are simply false. He refers to his vice president as president. He insults vast segments of the population. He stumbles and stammers repeatedly. He checks his watch, fumbles with his mask, and snaps at people when he doesn’t like a question. And those are the least of his faux pas with audiences.

‘Anti-Racists’ are Racist: Do Not Apologize for Being White

‘Anti-racists’ claim that whites, by virtue of their skin color, are detrimental to society

Published

on

Ibram X. Kendri, the bigoted professor from Boston University and director of their Center for Antiracist Research, says that whiteness is a problem for all of society, indeed for the entire globe. Who knew?!

Kendri, who was included in Time’s 100 Most Influential People of 2020, seemingly knows a lot about white people. In fact, he professes to know about every white person in America if not all over the world.

Me? I’m one of those people who merely gets up every day, brushes his teeth, gets dressed, eats a decent breakfast, and goes to work. I had no inkling that in the U.S. and other western nations white people like me had been “socialized to feel that they are inherently superior because they are white.” How naive I have been all these years!

Now I discover that to be “less white” is a virtue! It requires one to be “less oppressive, less arrogant, less certain, less defensive, less ignorant,” and, more humble, more willing to listen, more willing to believe, and, get this, “to break with the apathy” that white people like me exhibit and “to break with white solidarity.”

Woke Institutions and Brainwashed Authors

White solidarity? Darn, nobody told me about this. Thank goodness it’s all become so clear thanks to enlightened (white) authors such as Robin DiAngelo, who wrote the thoroughly racist and condescending book White Fragility, and thanks to companies such as Coca-Cola which have the foresight to impose programs for its white employees, to be less white.

When there’s a challenge in front of me, I actually do strive to find the right answer, particularly something related to numbers. I will collaborate on occasion, but most of the time I prefer to figure out things for myself, aided by the “all-knowing” Internet.

Am I arrogant, oppressive,  defensive, or ignorant? No one has ever brought this up. Being white, however, I guess I can’t help it! I don’t seek to inhibit the success of others, but I’m now informed that by virtue of my skin color I am detrimental to society. Mea culpa!

The Anti-Racist Racists

With Coca-Cola and other organizations teaching white people to be less white, I’m wondering, will the sequel be how Asians can be less yellow and Indians can be less brown? In America, both groups seem to excel academically. Perhaps only domineering Caucasians, particularly 60+ white males like me, however, are the ones upsetting the apple cart all over society.

Was I given a free pass for the last 40 years? I mean, all the while nobody mentioned my whiteness as a social and cultural problem. My black friends from Little League, high school, various hiking groups, and other groups around town haven’t said squat. So, up ’til now, presumably, I was doing okay. Perhaps they’ve merely been nice to me while whispering behind my back.

Heeding the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I thought our common goal was to live in harmony and to reach a state of color blindness where people were judged by the content of their character and not by their skin color. Hmmm…  I guess that is no longer in play.

I’m wondering, what would MLK conclude about today? Would he speak up against the propensity of the Left to define everybody else by class, sex, or race? Would he be opposed to pitting young against old, rich against poor, black against white, rural against urban, male against female, and all the other phony dichotomies that the Left relentlessly promulgates each day?

Absurd From the Get-Go

Imagine the unending uproar if someone drew up a list of how hundreds of millions of black people all over the world could become “less black.” The  absurdity of regarding all white people, hundreds of millions of them, as having a general set of characteristics, let alone having those characteristics be detrimental to society, is the grand facade of the ages.

How long will “woke” organizations maintain this illusion? Have they been coerced to the point where they’re afraid to say, “This is ridiculous, and needs to stop now”? [Actually, they have been coerced.] Will decades pass before we see the end of this malarkey?

I do not apologize for being a white person, just as no person of color has to apologize for their ethnic background, skin color, race, or religion. If you’re a good citizen who respects the rights of others, that, my friend, is sufficient.

Morgan Freeman, who played God in the movie Bruce Almighty, wishes we would do away with Black History month and merely have history. Freeman also wants us to stop regarding individuals as black and white and simply let people be people. Amen to that.
