Recent news headlines revealed an elderly Trump supporter was attacked by chair wielding, Clinton supporting liberal. Another Trump supporter was recently attacked at an airport “peaceful protest” by more liberal leftists. “Peaceful” protests at Berkeley with a young female Trump supporter sprayed in the face with mace . . . for speaking out.
Literal media silence.
I know hate. I do not care how the news wants to phrase it, this is hate. Unfortunately, cases like these are happening all over the country.
I have told my conservative friends and family:
DON’T WEAR A TRUMP HAT
DON’T POST A TRUMP SIGN IN YOUR YARD
NO TRUMP BUMPER STICKERS ON THE CARS.
I do not want anyone of us to be a target by the “tolerant” left.
See, I know irrational hatred from my fellow humans.
For 20 years I was married to a black man, I know hate when I see it. Liberals do it, conservatives do it. White people think I am “one of you” and black people attacked me, my children, my then husband as a “half-breeds, turncoat, wanna be” the list goes on.
I know the secret codes, the looks, how you really think before you find out who I really am . . . If I let you.
I live in a different world from the rest of you. Unlike politics or sexual orientation, I could not hide my spouse or children to avoid persecution. We lived in a smaller world than most, where my children and I have precious few people we trust.
Recent political attacks have brought back so many unpleasant memories. I spent years not showing pictures of my children or spouse to others at a job or social event. I have been fearful of losing my job over it.
I have lost a job over it.
Is all this in my imagination? I think not.
Mainstream commercials depicting LGBT couples by major companies were hailed by many. Yet a few years earlier these same people lost their minds over a commercial of an interracial married couple eating cereal.
Now, I see that same level of hate directed not just at inter-racial couples, but at people who openly support President Trump. A democratically elected president. Mull that idea over for a minute.
Is this America?
Hate comes in all colors, all religions, and most definitely from people who sanctimoniously wear safety pins while smashing others over the head with chairs or spraying them in the face with mace.
Liberals bemoan the loss of the American dream due to a temporary ban on high-risk immigrants or when a conservative is invited to speak at a university.
I wonder where the American dream went when we started literally attacking others for political beliefs.
Just exactly who are the “Nazi’s” here?
My dad once told me people will always find a reason to hate. He was right.
Liberals are eerily silent when others are physically attacked for political beliefs. I know these people, these are the same people who attacked my family for being inter-racial. They over-compensate in public, while secretly hiding their hate filled hearts behind a smile and political correctness. There should be no tolerance for hatred, of any kind, but to spend that kind of energy hating others for a political belief is especially egregious. Particularly is a society considered a republic.
To those who condone politically motivated hatred, I know hate, I know you, and it is only a matter of time before everyone else sees the real “you” too.
Politically motivated physical attacks, with the media legitimizing these acts, THIS, my friends is fascism.
