When It Comes To Politics, Whose Voice Are You Listening To?
And for many, those voices are not telling you who Trump really is..
Here is one voice that many are embracing as it epitomizes their feelings…
You know, that most fickle of human traits that can be counted upon to deliver anything reasonable and objective…
I have no clue who the original writer is for this content — there is nothing but anger and no pleading for compassion.
That is the first red flag that should go up yet went unnoticed — which usually happens when reacting through emotions and not through objective reasoning…
The second thing I noticed is a principle that can not be avoided:
Without the proper context everything becomes skewed…
the writer provided absolutely no context,
Accusations, true or not, rarely have context as they are pushing an agenda via content.
To include context does require work, and a lot of it — and it is the responsibility of the accuser to provide the context to their accusations, if they care to learn that is.
That lack of context is hardly an excuse to take someone’s content and wave it as a flag as to why you yourself feel the same as the writer.
You have only agreed to an emotional equivalency and hardly, if at all, touched any equivalent objective reasoning.
You have also taken the low road…
The thing about content only — you can pull up whatever you want that fits the emotion, the agenda, the desired outcome.
Even graphs and data can be massaged to make it fit the bill desired. What can’t be massaged is discernment — and there isn’t none of that in the writer’s comments.
So here’s the high road, let’s take the content and move it into context shall we?…

Accusation: “… an adult who mocked a disable person while addressing a crowd and still support him.”
We all have a default impressions for various situations for those we mimic, apparently Trump has a default impression of everyone he mimics.
It was that default mimic he was using when talking about the report.
And Trump can still be seen using it, yet the focus remains on this one event.
There are many news agencies that have taken a good look at this — and it should be no surprise that the agencies with an agenda will not go into context.
They never do with any accusation…
Resources that provide context to the situation..
– – – – – – – – – –
Accusation: “… spout clear racism day after day and still backed him.”
First, ‘racism’ has become the card many are using lately, as if they were referees in a soccer or football match…
That card has also been replaced recently by ‘fake news’…
And again, stepping back, putting everything into context, the accusations fall flat as they are only content.
Racism has also fallen in the abyss of political correctness.
And political correctness only does what it does, it waters things down.
Truthfully, if the pen is mightier than the sword, and as political correctness only wants to dull the power of words, then eventually we have the sword is mightier than the pen.
As well as everyone standing around wondering how we ended up in such a situation in the first place…
Just need to look in the mirror for that one…
So he (or she) thinks Trump’s a racist?
One only has to ask Ben Carson, who grew up in a poor neighborhood, had a mother who could not read but helped him learn everything he could as a child, who had experienced racism later in his young life both in school as well as in college.
He has no problem sharing he experienced racism mostly from white liberals.
Which also means if Trump were racist, Dr. Ben Carson would not be accepting any position from the Trump administration.
Trump’s appointments also have several races involved — if Trump were as racist as this writer claims then take it up with those that have accepted the challenge of being in his cabinet.
And let us know how it works out for you… seriously!

Accusation: “… advocate for war crimes and still thought he should be given the reigns of government.”
Advocate for war crimes…
And Obama and Hillary are not advocates of war crimes?
Obama and Hillary permitted the funding of ISIS / ISIL for more than 4 years now which has been verified by more than several ISIS leaders.
If the voices you are listening to disagree or not even talking about it, then challenge them, not Trump.
He’s wanting to stop the genocide of Christians in the Middle East as well as Asia and Africa — while liberal leaders are permitting their sovereignty to be dismantled from within by not vetting any immigrant that arrives to their country.
Every country that is a friend of the U.S. have welcomed Trump with warm praises and open arms — every country that is a foe has not…
Is discernment that lacking that this is not that obvious?
– – – – – – – – – –
Accusation: “… equate a woman’s worth to where she landed on a scale or 1 to 10 and still got on board.”
All from a private recording from 11 years ago that was also illegally gained.
How often do other politicians apologize for their past errors in judgement?
How often do you?
Trump apologized within hours after hearing the audio.
Some will say he should have apologized right away since he loves social media that well — let’s turn the tables: would you before having a moment with your wife?
Trump admitted it was inappropriate, Melania admitted it was not the man she married, and no one has come forward with any other such ‘atrocities’ to back up the vulgarity is still with Trump.
If anything, there are hundreds of stories of his compassion and generosity…
But why focus on those?
Don’t fit the agenda?
Or is your own lack of compassion really that bad?
Let’s not forget he hired the first female construction manger to oversee the building one of his towers as well as hired a very successful female campaign manager — or is that none of your business?
And since we are on the topic of woman’s worth, shall we dig into Bill Clinton’s record with more than several women having a legitimate suit against him while Hillary did not do much of anything save threaten each?
In case you missed one of the debates, 6 such women were sitting right behind Bill Clinton — his facial expression as he arrival to his assigned seats the seats could only be seen on C-Span as the MSM focused elsewhere (and probably deliberately so, based upon their favoritism for the Clintons).
That also put him in violation of 6 retraining orders that were gained by all 6 women….
But let’s not bring that up now, shall we?
Oh, Trump’s accusers?
They all withdrew from lack of evidence to insufficient evident — all of them…
They never made it to discovery never mind trial.
– – – – – – – – –
Accusation: “… stood silently while he labeled Mexicans as criminals and Muslims as terrorists.”
OK, Two topics here…
Mexicans as Criminals
First, the writer left out the rapist claims that are still circulating, mute point but details are important yes?
Have any of you talked with the families that live along the border states?
I have family within 100 miles of the border — and they never had to lock everything up before 2008.
They will not go outside at night and have had their lights shot out more than several times.
This is not an isolated situation — they are all pissed off right now and for good reason: The government that is supposed to protect them has abandoned them.
Also, wasn’t the first foreign leader to meet with Trump from Mexico?
And this was before the elections — the fact that Hillary was never invited seems to go over every Trump accusers head…
And didn’t that meeting last nearly 2-1/2 times longer than it should as well as having both Trump and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto?
Now the Trump speech that started all this?
Thought you’d never ask…
“When do we beat Mexico at the border? They’re laughing at us, at our stupidity. And now they are beating us economically. They are not our friend, believe me. But they’re killing us economically.
“The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems.
“Thank you. It’s true, and these are the best and the finest. When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.
“But I speak to border guards and they tell us what we’re getting. And it only makes common sense. It only makes common sense. They’re sending us not the right people.
“It’s coming from more than Mexico. It’s coming from all over South and Latin America, and it’s coming probably— probably— from the Middle East. But we don’t know. Because we have no protection and we have no competence, we don’t know what’s happening. And it’s got to stop and it’s got to stop fast.”
The MSM and the person that started the claim that Trump said ALL Mexicans are criminals and rapists are ignoring that last paragraph — they are coming in from around the world through Mexico.
President Nieto agrees it is a problem not only for the U.S. but Mexico as well.
And the person that started this false claim?
Virginia Senator Tim Kaine — you know, the VP running mate for Hillary….
No agenda there….
Senator Kain claimed that “As a candidate, [Donald Trump] started his campaign where he called Mexicans rapists and criminals.”
The MSM just took that one sentence and ran with it, ignoring anything in Trump’s speech quoted above.
Again, content without the proper context provides nothing but a skewed perspective…
– – – – – – – – –
Accusation: “You sided with a bully when it should have mattered most…”
Everyone that knows Trump knows him for his compassion — heck even Senator Harry Reid who lambasted Trump for nearly a year finally admitted Trump is not as bad as Reid thought he would be and has accepted the Trump election…
Not too many get into Reid’s good graces once he has formed an opinion of you – Trump did…
– – – – – – – – –
Muslims are terrorists…
Only a fool would think that ALL Muslims are terrorists, so there is, as a result, a ‘peaceful majority’ (Japan, Germany, Russia, heck even the U.S. a had a Peaceful Majority in the `30’s and `40’s).
But there is a problem that is being overlooked for the sake of being politically correct.
There are 1.2 Billion Muslims in the world, of which by their the intel from many intelligence agencies globally, 15 to 25% of Muslims are terrorists.
That number comes to: 180,000,000 to 300,000,000 Muslim terrorists — that’s bigger than most countries — and these guys are not only well armed but could not care less who dies, even their own family.
They are committed and fully focused upon the destruction of all Western civilization (No? Take a history lesson on the Middle East as it was in the 70’s and 80’s and compare it to now — the people didn’t elect their government, it was decided by those who were looking out for the greater good of the people – sound familiar?).
So why should we be concerned about the radicals?
Who is doing all the terrorism, killing, beheadings, massacres – the Peaceful Majority or the radicals?
So what about the 80% or so ‘Peaceful Majority’…???
OK, please let me know when the ‘Peaceful Majority’ made a difference in the following history…
Germany – most were peaceful yet the Nazi’s drove the agenda, resulting in 60 million deaths (of the 14 million in the concentration camps, 6 million were Jews)…
Russia – most were peaceful yet 20 to 50 million Russians were killed during the rise of Stalin (the total has never been officially established)
China – most were peaceful yet 70 million were killed under he rise of Mao Zedong (Mao Tse-tung)
Japan – prior to WWII, most were peaceful yet the Japanese military killed 12 million across Southeast Asia
United States – 2.3 million Muslim Arabs were living legally within our country and most were peaceful — yet only 19 radicals brought the country to its knees while killing nearly 3000 people
In ALL the above cases –
The Peaceful Majority were irrelevant
to the agenda the radicals wanted to carry out.
If you take the time to go through original source documents you will also discover that in ALL the above cases, the radicals used political correctness to their advantage.
Political correctness does not favor liberty, does not favor freedom — it does favor those that want to destroy both.

Accusation: “… it is the fact that he doesn’t disgust you that will stick with me long after the election.”
Sorry buddy, can’t help you with your baggage, I — and everyone else for that matter — have enough of our own…
You deal with it, the rest of us are moving ahead, with or without you.

Our First Amendment permits free speech — which also means we are as free as we want to be as wise and discerning as we want, as well as stupider than any ignoramus. Intelligence and wisdom are not part of our First Amendment.
However, character is — and that element is being ignored for the sake of political correctness.
Which means discernment and wisdom are as well.
Knowledge is power and is a great thing, but if that knowledge is only content, and that knowledge lacks context, then are we not just making ourselves stupider than any ignoramus?
The first thing most learn when they are stretching themselves for character is that the finger pointers are usually spouting a reflection of themselves.
In doing so, they have made themselves unavailable to learn – one cannot learn much of anything in such a state.
So many will rely on the most fickle of human traits to justify their position, then call objective reasoning faulty as well as idiotic, yes?
The only thing that post is seeking is a like-minded party — and such have failed to learn that you just cannot in any fashion, form, or shape, sharpen a knife on a damn sponge…
