So everyone was shocked on Election Day but those of us who voted for Donald Trump. We heard his voice and saw his vision. But those who voted for Hillary cannot accept the reality and they have now for the past week protested, rioted, burned garbage cans, smashed windows – and cried.
Yes, cried – from President Barack Obama’s staff to students on Ivy League campuses who held “cry outs.” You heard it, “cry outs.” Professors suspended classes and exams because they and their students were so distraught that their candidate didn’t win.
They protested Trump like they protested President George W. Bush. Except this time it’s worse. There are thousands of liberals blocking traffic, carrying signs, showing their disgust. Some even threatening to assassinate President-Elect Trump.
Funny, nobody protested Obama. His supporters defined his Republican opponents – John McCain and Mitt Romney – and their supporters as racists. Yet the Republicans accepted the loss with dignity.
These liberals are even beating up Trump supporters. Yet the mainstream media is only focusing on the few Trump supporters who are bragging and yelling at people. They are ignoring those protesters who are calling Trump (and his supporters) racists, sexists, misogynists, homophobes – just like they ignored protesters who called Bush racist, Hitler, Nazi, murderer, etc.
But why shouldn’t they? It is well known that the mainstream media focused on trying to dig up dirt on Donald Trump so Hillary could win.
So the liberals can protest with impunity but when the Republican Tea Party organization protested ObamaCare, all they could do was call them racists. But Hillary took it to a new level. She called Trump supporters “a barrel of unredeemable degenerates” and of course, racists, sexists, misogynists and homophobes.
But the stench of the hypocrisy of the Democratic Party and Hillary campaign clouds the entire atmosphere with fungus so thick it will take years to remove the stink.
One South Florida Civil Rights Icon, Mr. T. Willard Fair, President and CEO of the Urban League of Greater Miami, said what disgusted him most was the audacity of the Clinton campaign to blast Donald Trump as being demeaning and disrespectful to women and then host a campaign rally featuring rapper Jay Z, who made millions demeaning and disrespecting women. All of Jay Z’s rap songs refer to women as bitches and “ho’s” and sexual objects.
But let’s not forget that President Obama invited Jay Z to the White House so many times they became new best friends while he, like Hillary, blasted Trump as being a sexist and misogynist.
Does anyone besides me and Mr. Fair think that is the height of hypocrisy? How do you blast one man and then herald another for doing, for saying the same things or worse? And the fact that one man was running to be POTUS and the other just made millions being a nasty entertainer is not a valid excuse.
Or maybe it’s because Jay Z demeaned black women and Trump demeaned white women. That makes Jay Z acceptable to Hillary and Obama and the rest of the country.
It’s funny to hear black folk who listen to Jay Z on a regular basis being offended by Donald Trump’s words.
So it’s OK to demean black women but not OK to demean white women. There’s no outcry even from the black church about Jay Z but black Christians are appalled at Donald Trumps’ words about white women.
Hypocrisy at its best but racist at its worse, particularly since the African-American vote is the backbone of the Democratic
Party. Ironically the very same Party that created the Ku Klux Klan to demonize black folk to keep them in line by intimidating, beating, lynching and murdering thousands of innocent black men, women and children is now depending on the black vote to stay in power.
More ironic is that after the Party has used the black vote, they give absolutely nothing back to that community – no jobs, no business opportunities – nothing but food stamps and welfare. Now that’s real racism.
So let’s see what President-Elect Trump has to offer. As President Obama said to
Republicans when he was elected, “Elections have consequences, I won and you lost”.
So Trump won! Hillary lost! Get over it.
