An Observation Concerning… Trump, Liberals, and the In Between (me).

“The newspaper says to get bent, Man I’d like to say that to the President.”
-Wheatus, “Hump’em ‘n Dump’em”

I’m a registered independent – and as the aggravating whining continues, it validates my decision to not select a party over a decade ago. I’m not a fan of Donald Trump as a person, but I do believe he hasn’t had enough time to prove himself as a president so I don’t want to label him a failure yet.

I’m an equal opportunist concerning politics: I dislike everyone. We’re currently in the middle of a feud that has more to do with the power and competition of overseers and their supporters than a unified nation. I saw two articles this week that irked me a bit. This is why I have a blog: so I can complain to absolutely no one in particular. First, someone was kicked off a plane (big surprise; it’s like a thing now), but was sporting a Make America Great Again hat. Instead of supporting the elderly gentleman’s unruly behavior like everyone always does in these dumb situations, people were shouting, “Lock him up!” So, Trump supporters should be detained just because, but belligerent sex- and drug-trafficking doctors should win law suits? Second, I was appalled when I saw that Notre Dame Students booed Vice President Mike Pence before his commencement speech at graduation. It’s one thing to dislike and blame everything on President Trump, but insulting the Vice President – who will become president if Trump is impeached by the way – proves one thing: it’s not about Trump, but the Republican Party. This proves three other things: Liberals want a democratic dictatorship which contradicts itself, are actually more closed-minded than conservatives which is strange to think, and are insufferably sensitive while disrespecting the entire government unless they get what they want.

In addition, I recently heard a 20-something friend of mine joke by saying, “… not in Trump’s Nazi book-burning country.” I thought about that statement and realized how incredibly insensitive and offensive it was, and they are a liberal person. I’m not saying it was offensive to Trump, but I’m saying that it’s offensive to people of Jewish faith. To compare what is happening in America now to the Nazi regime is completely and utterly stupid.

Jewish Person: “The Holocaust was awful.”
Liberal: “I know exactly how you feel. Trump is president. I don’t think there has ever been a more racist person.”
Jewish Person: “Hitler tried to exterminate my race from the planet. He is responsible for the death of six million Jewish people.”
Liberal: “You just don’t get it. We’re basically going through the same thing.”
Jewish Person: “Huh?”

Pathetic. My father used to live in Germany as a child and one thing he mentioned to me that I will always remember was that when passing by old camp locations there was a certain smell that still lingered years after the Holocaust, a scent of decay. It is despicable and disgraceful to even joke about that.

Maybe we should start thinking more about who we consider to be deplorable and uneducated.

P.S. Please take note that I’m NOT specifically referring to Democrats as Liberals. You’re smart; I’m sure you figured that out.
