How Liberals Became Blinded By Trump Hatred

October 21, 2020 |

Today’s Must-Read article is from the New Neo blog, where the anonymous female blogger (a former Democrat-turned-conservative surrounded by liberals in NYC) examines how liberals have become so blinded by groundless Trump hatred that they can no longer see dangerous realities, such as the rising anti-Semitism in their own party.

In particular, she cites a column in the Jewish magazine Tablet by Bari Weiss, whom you’d think might understand where the real danger is, since she was driven out of the New York Times for daring to express non-leftist groupthink-approved thoughts. She recognizes the dangers of the fascistic, anti-Semitic radical left, and that Biden will allow it to gain more power, but she can’t even bring herself to consider the possibility of doing the only thing to stop it: voting for Trump. She describes him in purple prose as an “obscenity” who has “normalized bigotry and cruelty in ways that have crippled American society.” As the blogger notes, she offers no specifics as to how he’s allegedly done that.

She then quotes Weiss describing the attributes of the classic liberal that she fears are being lost in the Democratic Party: “…the belief that everyone is equal because everyone is created in the image of God. The belief in the sacredness of the individual over the group or the tribe. The belief that the rule of law—and equality under that law—is the foundation of a free society. The belief that due process and the presumption of innocence are good and that mob violence is bad. The belief that pluralism is a source of our strength; that tolerance is a reason for pride; and that liberty of thought, faith, and speech are the bedrocks of democracy…”

As the blogger points out, those things aren’t under assault in the Democratic Party; they’ve been dead there for years. What Weiss is describing is a conservative Trump voter, but her visceral hatred for “Orange Man Bad” has blinded her to seeing it.

It’s well worth reading and sharing the whole piece. But if your Trump-hating relatives refuse to read it, you can get the basic idea across by coming to dinner in one of those T-shirts that has Trump’s picture on it with the caption, “In reality, they’re not after me, they’re after you. I’m just in the way.”

    It hurts me to see these people cannot see the danger in putting Biden/Harriss in the White House! The unrest in our Country comes directly from Obama/Biden!! God help our Country to overcome this hatred!

    to Sharon Faulkner get your facts in order before you speak. Jew hating was alive and
    well in the US. The Jews were bashing bund meetings with baseball bats and guns. They were
    sending money to relatives in Europe to get them out. The Jewish underground in Europe had no help from their neighbors. In the summer of 1942, FDR refused to let the SS Drottningholm dock,
    refusing their pleas for asylum he sent thousands of Jews back to Germany and certain death.
    So much for the Statue of Liberty. FDR was just another Jew hating sc>m [email protected]

    You need to put your head together with Josh Hawley and talk about what I've been telling you. The google gods have not been able to silence you, it would have raised too many eyebrows, so they put a group of employees on your site to harangue the people and silence us, they have now ganged up on Hawleys posts. I've been begging you to clear this up and turn it over to Nunes, Jordan whoever will look at it. Something did happen because 3 of the top trolls are gone, but more came in. Under different names. They are there monday-friday when they clock in. They also exhibit facebook powers that the average user doesn't have. Please have them checked out, pretty sure they work for a big IT company.

    Mike
    American Jews did nothing to help European Jews during the Holocaust and in fact the biggest Paper they owned tried to bury it -- and they supported Roosevelt who for all practical purposes was the Fourth Member of the Axis.
