The Real Haters Are on the Left [OPINION]
Deplorables. Unredeemables. Racists. Dumb. Hillbillies. White supremacists. Angry white men. Smelly Walmart shoppers. Nazis.
Those are just some of the names the left has deployed against those of us who support President Trump. Hateful names that come from the hearts of hateful people who cannot come to grips with the fact that they lost an election three years ago. Yet the narrative following the massacres in El Paso and Dayton is that Trump is responsible for the bloodshed because of his hateful speech.
Corrupt leftist FBI Agent Peter Strzok, who was involved in the Russia collusion hoax, is on record via email as slandering both Trump supporters and southerners, stating "Just went to a Southern Virginia Walmart. I could smell the Trump support." What exactly do Trump supporters smell like, Agent Strzok? Is it a coincidence that we've had two shootings at Walmart stores in the last week?
Antifa. The Ku Klux Klan. Black Lives Matter. The Proud Boys. MS13. Just some of the radical left groups founded by or supported by the Democrat party. All are responsible for deaths and violence in the U.S. At least two have advocated for killing police officers and ICE Agents.
Remember that woman who was trapped in a corner in California following a Trump rally while Antifa members shoved eggs in her face? Yeah, me too. How about the elderly woman who was dragged on Boston Common when Antifa thugs tried to tear her American flag from her hands?
Black Lives Matter not only hates Trump and his supporters but hates white police officers, too. I haven't forgotten their street marches during the Obama years that included chants such as "Pigs in a blanket, fry em like bacon" and "What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want em? Now!" Yeah, the good old Obama days.
I recall the Antifa riots at UCal Berkley and how masked leftists set the place on fire to prevent gay conservative Milo Yiannopoulos from speaking. Many other conservatives including African-American Candace Owens have been harassed in public and prevented from speaking by the tolerant left.
Remember the words of socialist Rep. Arryana Pressley: "We don’t need any more brown faces that don’t want to be a brown voice. We don’t need any more black faces that don’t want to be a black voice.”
In other words, toe the line or get out.
Not a day goes by when a Hollywood celeb doesn't call for Trump's assassination or attack his followers. Without a shred of evidence or specific allegation, members of the left-wing political elite constantly call for Trump's impeachment and removal from office. Loose screws like Rep. Maxine Waters say he should be jailed. Cher fantasizes about Trump being raped in jail and Madonna openly calls for the White House to be bombed.
The El Paso shooter stated in his manifesto that to blame Trump for his actions would be "fake news." The Dayton shooter was a Social Democrat and a supporter of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, according to his own words. But the left blames Trump anyway.
The source of most of the political hatred in this country seems to lead to the left and its supporters. Physical and verbal attacks on Trump supporters are commonplace. When was the last time you heard of thugs jumping out of a car to assault a Warren supporter or a Bernie supporter? Eh, yeah.
There is a lot of rage and anger in this country but the source of that anger is not Trump or his supporters. It comes from the left and the Democrat Party. Let's get it straight. Remember those women who would get naked and screech at the sky? Those were not Trump supporters.
Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer need to do a better job in keeping their goons in line.
