HARD TO FOLLOW HYPOCRISY FOR JUSTICE: THOUGH I DISAGREE, HARD TO FULLY FIGHT TRUMP

“Do you not like, nor hate him either?”


Since the election back in November of 2016 for President Donald J. Trump, people have been doing everything from debating to protesting. I myself have written a few posts on Trump as well. But what I have not done was write from the perspective of being on his side. Most people would say, “How could you be on his side?” And they would be right to an extent. There are things he says and done that delve into petty. But when I see the types of people coming after Trump, it puts you in a strange position. You have so many awful people, or people who never question the awful behavior in their own environment question Trump.

What do I mean by strange position? This is what I mean. When I hear people make statements regarding Trump, then turn around and behave that same way, it really hurts their argument. It’s hard to go along with someone who is behaving like the man they rail against the most. So, who would I be referring to as it pertains to people who fight the hardest? I am referring to athletes, entertainers, politicians, business executives, and newscasters. People who have just as much, if not more influence than Trump exemplify their own poor behavior.

Who would fall into the category of what I am talking about. On of the groups is the fashion industry. Trump’s daughter Tiffany attended a fashion show awhile back. Patrons refused to sit next to her amidst her father’s comments about women. Understandably so, until you delve deeper into the fashion industry. When you see how they have had such a negative impact on young women. Everything from telling young women who are already underweight they need to lose more, to being forced to create more diversity with it’s advertising. And still, the attempt is made to further hold on to such principles in their industry.

So when you hear people who themselves are so immoral and unethical, it’s hard to only point the finger at Trump. Or better yet when NBA player Lebron James states there is no room for the type of locker room talk that Trump was engaging in. Then you say to yourself, “Really, now athletes have become the moral compass for how women should be treated. An over 90% divorce rate, mainly due to infidelity. Domestic abuse cases, murder, attempted murder, rapes, and now they are all of a sudden the voice for the women’s cause. It really makes it hard to hear these types of individuals plead their case. And still, there is another group of people that go hard and that is the entertainers.

Entertainers have been poking fun and protesting themselves against Donald Trump. But every award season actors and actresses take to the stage demanding higher pay for women and expressing a lack of diversity as it pertains to minorities. It is hard attack someone at a restaurant for poisoning another patron’s food, when your own meal is being poisoned at the dinner table and you eat it like it taste delicious. And yet, you never hear about them out a studio executive for their practices. All you hear is, “the industry” is a certain way. But the industry is made up of people, who are the people. If we attack the president, I also want to know the names of these bosses as well.

And that’s my problem, why I may disagree, but it’s hard for me to fully follow the pack. There is just way too many hypocrites fighting the president. Too many wanna be righteous people who are not really being righteous. They talk about togetherness and are some of the main people pushing against their own agenda. Mass media has this narrative they push as well, but won’t admit it because it boost ratings. See, in the end, everyone want to act like a martyr, until the one you stand by does that thing that has you protesting. We will find every reason to denounce the opposition, but fight for the wrong on our own side. So it forces me, to now stand behind those I wouldn’t normally stand behind because of the dishonesty. And the more we are dishonest the more Trump types will come into power.

THE DONALD: WHY HE’S RELEVANT!

“The things we hate most about him.”

Make America Great Again! This is the exclamation that has been the premise for the 2016 election run for Republican and Presidential hopeful Donald J. Trump. He, over the past year, has what some call made some pretty inflammatory comments. But, if the comments from Donald are so inflammatory, then why has he not slowed down? He is not only still in the race, but has gotten stronger. What is it about Donald Trump that resonates with so many people? Well let’s start off by the comments that have people so upset.

In the beginning, Donald Trump was this fresh, new look into the Republican party. He is a television personality and business executive, not a politician. All the others were career politicians, with the exception of Ben Carson who is a physician. Initially, his comments excited people overall because he was seen as entertaining. But once he ventured into the social, that’s when everything changed. Trump’s comments regarding the Hispanic community as well as Muslims is what got the ball bouncing for the tension. But conversely, Trump gained an even larger fan base.

Well what was it? What has caused people to be on the side of Trump? Well, in my opinion, it’s the same reason why his opponents dislike him. For starters you have society push back against Trump. The communities that he has spoken of the most have protested him since the beginning. Mainly the Hispanic community regarding illegal immigration and his issue with radical Islam. Then he stated he felt more law enforcement is needed in already divided inner cities of Black communities. Now, all the celebrities are coming out as well.

But what is the biggest fear regarding Trump. It can’t be the fear he’s going to harm a lot of people. There is so many steps you have to go through to get anything accomplished in our government, that the odds of him doing what everyone fears is slim. No, our fear lies in the fact that Trump actually is a representation of us. Now you might go us, with everything he has said. But he truly is all of us. So where is the proof of it. I came to this conclusion the more public figures came out.

First with the Hollywood crowd that labeled Trump as a racist. Well hold the phone. Aren’t these celebs in an industry where a movie has a hard time receiving the budget because of the ethnic group in the film. So how can you point the finger at this guy and not address the individuals over here. They judged Trump for his misogynistic comments toward women, but these same people will tell a woman she’s not qualified for a movie role because of her age. It’s like they talk the ultra liberal agenda, but don’t live by it. Speaking of women, even professional athletes have stepped forward. Oddly enough, these same athletes have over 90% divorce rates in their leagues due to infidelity. Or the fact that  these men can’t wait to settle into their hotels whenever on the road, so they can enjoy the local strip clubs. Or our musicians who put together lyrics expressing their own sexual conquest of women.

So why has society become this dishonest. Like I said before, he is actually us. We disagree with what Trump says, but it is not foreign to the ear. Meaning, had he have said Muslims need to be enslaved or placed in concentration camps, there would be more outrage. Why, well this view is foreign to us in America because we don’t live that way anymore. Until it is foreign to the ear what he says, then he or guys like him will always have relevance. You see, Donald Trump is one big mirror. So every time he speaks there is an aspect I see of him in everyone. Instead of saying we all do say these things, and work to fix them, we act as if they don’t exist or never heard of them.

And that is why his presidential run is so strong. News journalists ask questions regarding something that Trump has said or done and get the PC reply. And the reply is so obvious that it’s a lie, his following gets stronger. He is karma for dishonest people. If America was honest with itself, he wouldn’t be around. But for some reason, you can’t get people to see themselves. So he is not what the country does not need, he is a true representation of what America really stands for under the surface. So when he says things I go, oh, ok. There is no real reaction because the outrage is not consistent throughout society.

In the end, even though I am not a Trump supporter, I get the lure. People are frustrated with not only the employment market, but the social landscape of America. People are irritated at how we refuse to not be honest. But most of all, people are mad because they want to be honest, but anything will get you labeled in today’s society. My view is that as long as people talk in soundbites and tip toe around responses there will always be a Trump. He is necessary; whether you like him or not, his presidential run is necessary.
