It has become impossible for me to continue this discussion on social media, it just doesn’t seem right to have such vehement disagreements in a public forum, especially among sisters. And so I invite you here.
I’m continually struck by your regular accusations of every last Trump voter including your family to be guilty of the most horrendous things. We don’t love endless wars nor do we support genocidal maniacs. And since you’ve been gone 35+ years and I live in, I can assure you no one here in your family actively engages in polluting the planet. In fact we’re all really quite the opposite.
To be sure you would argue we are guilty by non-association, but regardless of how much you would like us to fight for your issues, everyone has things that are important to them. Every disagreement on the science of climate change doesn’t have to meltdown to a fight over who is more ignorant.
What people fail to consider with a myopic view, Left or Right, is that everyone is unique. They cannot and should not be lumped into one giant monolithic block. I’m guilty of it myself when I refer to the Left in collusion with Mainstream Media, and our peculiar great-Aunt the Democrat Party as the Borg. That is the Borg Collective, who is helplessly subservient to central mind control. You are guilty when you lump every Trump voter, even those who just voted for the lesser of two evils, into cultists.
Trump-haters as a side, should own the fact that rabid Trump supporters are a monster of the Left’s own making. A not-bigoted, non-racist, non-homophobic, non-misogynistic, non-xenophobic monster. They simply have come to the defense of their unfairly maligned President, who doesn’t always do a great job of defending himself. It’s hard to see the Left project so much of their own aberrant behavior onto a very unlikely man.
I believe there is either very strong spiritual deception or a massive media disinformation campaign occurring today. I don’t care if you call me a conspiracy theorist. But everything you just posted about Trump is everything the Right believes about various characters associated with the Democrat Party and the Left. Many Conservatives would believe your characterization is preposterous, and can only be attributed to the Left. I repost it here for review:
“Let’s not forget that besides fueling race wars, increased violence, and potentially internecine warfare, T remains at the heart of scandals involving sex, children, graft, corruption, collusion, nepotism, tanked economy, filling the swamp with co-rapists and co-classists, gutting clean water & air protections, legalizing known toxins, clear hypocrisy, golden toilets, bankrupt properties and those of the business owners contracted, golf @ over $1.3M, tax evasion, being a big player-mafioso wannabe, violating the Constitution, seeking an unprecedented third term before his 1st is out, pretending to be a deity, fucking the whole immigration system and the honor codes of a host of other institutions, not divesting of his foreign investments so as not to compromise his “leadership,” pulling out of any global agreements involving cooperation on the climate crisis, faking crises to justify strikes, wagging the dog, making decisions based on his limited 1.7GPA worldview, co-opting a whole cadre of MoscowMitches, raiding the treasury, making natives suffer again, causing trauma to children, laughing while you burn, and for being a first class asshole, if you’ll forgive this last, being the only insult among observations.”
Where we are getting the disinformation should be priority one for anyone who is genuinely seeking the truth.
You preach tolerance but treat as a villain anyone who doesn’t agree with you 100%. Ronald Reagan said those that you only agree with 80% of the time are not your 20% enemy. It saddens me you treat me and others like enemies. Granted, you have multiple disagreements with me that might easily exceed 80% but the good news is we don’t have to agree.
I’ve made no overt efforts to try and persuade you to see things my way, to insist there is no other way to properly obtain or process information except in the way that I do. I accept there are many views other than my own. Why do you find it so hard to extend the same courtesy to me? You always say Live and let live, but you’ve never accepted me for who I am.
That you would waste so much time and effort trying to be my “moral compass” is really the height of arrogance and narcissism. I am not permitted a dissenting opinion, and if I dare to have one, I am a super villain to you.
I don’t say this to insult you, I say it for perspective. Your facts and my facts don’t match up. Wouldn’t it be far better to make a change in your news sources for a time, perhaps listen to some Mark Levin instead of posing questions to me, virulently opposing my responses and melting down into a fight over who is more ignorant?
I just had a slew of tough days at work, but yesterday I nearly single-handedly packed up two 2-yard concrete mixers on hooklifts and sent them to Florida, and today was productive.. until your slew of angry hateful barbs nearly ruined my day. I admit one of my responses could have been Your timing is impeccable as always, Have a Happy Fucking Birthday and I hope your day sucks.
But I am a child of God and so are you, whether you know it or like it or not. He doesn’t want us to have destructive arguments and a piss poor relationship. I can only admonish you to humble yourself before Him. Then let Him guide your thoughts and give you wisdom about how to speak in a productive loving manner. And Have a Happy Birthday. I truly hope you have a great day.
