PUSHBACK: HOW THE SURGE AGAINST TRUMP COULD HURT THE 2020 ELECTION FOR A PARTY

White House

“2020 is quickly approaching.”


politics

Since the election run of President Donald Trump, there has been constant protest and contest infighting. But my question is, is this good for a party? Because we have not had a politician in the United States that people have pushed against this heavy in a very long time. So what are the Republicans to do?

We have been watching over the country smaller elections after Trump victory where the entire Republican party is being moved aside. So what will 2020 look like with so many people pushing against the leader of the country. It seems as if with these smaller elections, people are making other Republican candidates pay for how they feel about Trump.

So, with the political decisions, you have the emotions running deep. And people have taken this moment in time to vent their personal views. And it has permeated the environment in every discussion about the president. But is it always good to have all these emotions running throughout our society?

Because when emotions are behind all the decision making we lose all logic. And even during a logical moment, we still run with the emotion at times because the social construct of America forces us to choose sides. Meaning, there are people who like the president, but will say no comment or they don’t from fear of verbal, and sometimes physical attack.

a party in peril

Now we have the question left of what will happen to a party that is being seen as untrustworthy. Could it be that Trump has dismantled a party, or has he just unwound himself? Because like I Image result for republican losingsaid earlier, a lot of Republicans have been taking loses since Trump’s election. And on top of that, an entire young generation will be voting that didn’t get their chance to vote in 2017. Also with that generation is a group that voted Obama in 2008 and 2012. So you’re talking a massive push in 2020. You could see a run bigger than Obama’s. But whoever it is, could prove a real problem for Republicans if Trump runs again.

FRIENEMIES OF AMERICA: WHEN YOUR ALLIES MIGHT ALSO YOUR ENEMIES

Image result for GENTRIFICATION

“Ever get the feeling they hate as well?”


The United States have always been a place of constant conflict. No matter if it were related to ethnicity, religion, or gender. We have had these various social issues going back to when this land was under the control of Great Britain. But in today’s society the issues have been just as social, and directed at our new commander in chief. Since Donald J. Trump was elected president, there have been constant protest against him. The most recent controversy was last week when comedian Kath Griffin was pictured with a headless bloodied-face Trump. She has not only lost her CNN New Years Eve gig, but also a few sponsorships. But, pertaining to the people who dislike him, you ever get the feeling they are dishonest as well.

And when I say dishonest, I mean as it pertains to the same reasons they dislike the president. Trump is disliked for a number of reasons, but a few stick out the most: racial, gender, and religious. So are the people who hate him for these reasons, are themselves against the very groups that they accuse him of not liking. I pride myself on being a little more liberal than conservative, but I get the feeling the liberals are no different. I get the feeling that these liberals dislike Trump because they are afraid of their own disdain for groups poking through. What do I mean by their own held feelings about certain groups.

Well, for starters, the racial aspect of America. And when I say racial, I am obviously not pertaining to the human race, but more so how we use racial socially. You have these liberals that don’t like Trump, yet they are gentrifying Black and Latino areas, moving out groups. They are not built on keeping people and preserving culture. They remove the current culture, and adopt their own in the name of cool or trendy. Like changing the name of parts of Harlem to SOHA or Washington Heights NYC to Upper Manhattan. Yet these are the people with anti-Trump signs. They can’t see that they are the same as him, maybe even worse. They attack him for language, but their actions are far more detrimental.

What about the religious angle people on the left try to take. He is seen as xenophobic as it pertains to Muslims. But when I walk into the airport, even before Trump ran for president, people get uncomfortable with Muslims. And when I say uncomfortable, I mean the attire they sport. Mainly how the women are expected to dress. But the moment he comments on it, people get upset. But when I see the discomfort from people, it throw me off because he is supposed to be the xenophobic one. Not the liberals, they should embrace the diversity of people. Yet, there is something that is triggered when Muslim women and men are around wearing traditional garb. But what about the gender conversation?

In the United States, gender has always been a debate. But when Trump was caught in conversation regarding women, it became that much more controversial. It even prompted women in fashion to not sit next to his daughter Tiffany because of him. But then I started to think, don’t the fashion industry get criticized each year for campaigns that place unrealistic physical expectations on young women. Or the fact that they push against the use of women like Ashley Graham, a plus size model, on ad campaigns. That hypocrisy is something they have to be willing to shift as well. Can’t attack him, and continue to push into young women’s minds that they are not good enough because their bodies don’t look a certain way.

In the end, you are going to always have people who tell you not to do something, that they do themselves. We all use the excuse, “You’re held to a higher standard.” And that is true, but you’re also held maybe not to that equal standard level, but more so to that standard obligation. Meaning you shouldn’t be doing it, but he really shouldn’t be doing it. So on a scale of one to ten, he is a ten, but you’re still like a two or three. Don’t use someone else’s standard as a means to be rude yourself. If you feel he hates Muslims, don’t get uncomfortable around Muslims for that same reason. Attack is meant for things that he does that we don’t deem acceptable. Because a leader represents your country. Yet, if we are just as uncomfortable as Trump, he actually does represent the sentiment of the nation.

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

Image result for trump protesters

“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.
