Letter to the Editor: ‘Love Trumps Hate’ irony

Composite image, St. George News

OPINION – Such irony:  Remember all the “Love Trumps Hate” election posters from the progressives?  The campaign slogan implies liberals are about love whereas Trump is about hate.  It’s ironic that the progressives have so much hate toward all things Trump and his supporters.  Yes, deep hate.  It’s the glue holding Democrats together right now.  Hell hath no fury like a progressive scorned (or defeated).

More irony:  Remember the “Woman’s March”?  They marched in support of strong, accomplished women. Right? Well, Betsy DeVos is a strong, accomplished woman. Ivanka Trump is a strong, accomplished woman. Oh, the caveat is a woman has to embrace liberal ideology to qualify with the feminists. Right? Just being bright, educated and successful is not enough.

More irony:  Diversity is the magic buzzword of liberals. Progressives embrace diversity. Right? Doesn’t diversity imply differing views, skin colors, ethnicity, cultural values, et cetera? Oh, I forgot, differing views doesn’t count. The left doesn’t really want diversity of ideas. They want conformity to the ideology of democratic socialism and they’ll take all comers willing to vote Democrat but they will not tolerate diversity of political opinion. Selective diversity?

More irony: Progressives think Trump is such an idiot that he will self-destruct. Right? Then why are they working so hard to obstruct, disparage and boycott Trump’s right to govern? Are they worried that Trump will succeed and make America great again? That would hurt.

More irony: Progressives support Islamic refugees and Muslim religious rights. Right? Does it matter that Islamic sharia law is degrading to women? Female genital mutilation is disgusting. Islamic jihad is murder. Are liberals okay with these Muslim practices? Or is religious tolerance just another label and divide thing?  Label Republicans as intolerant anti Muslims. Say it loud enough and it will be true. It’s ironic that Left Wing religious tolerance doesn’t seem to extend to white American Christians.

Another irony: Progressives support the poor working man. Right? Wealthy people are not to be trusted unless their name is George Soros, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, Warren Buffet, Beyonce or Oprah. Billionaire is okay if you are liberal.

So, in summary: Liberals don’t seem to be about love, diversity, feminism, religious tolerance or the working man. Liberals are more about a passion for political power, getting their way or else. It’s amazing what emotions political irrelevance can provoke. Desperate times call for desperate actions like violent protests and obstruct and oppose tactics. Right? All this drama exposes the left as self serving at best and hypocritical at worst. Right?

    You’re attempting intellectual honesty with a group that is immune to its effects. If you want to understand liberals, look no further than what they accuse others of. For instance, they scornfully point and call us “science deniers” because we have a problem with a bajillion dollar taxing scheme that empowers a handful of people and companies (*cough* al gore *cough*) without having ANY effect on the environment according to their own numbers, then turn around and literally deny science (*cough* XX and XY chromosomes *cough*) by proudly proclaiming that gender is subjective and fluid. Flat Earther’s, indeed. They accuse conservatives of hate and intolerance while being completely hateful and intolerant. They hold up signs proclaiming their hatred of fascism while physically and verbally abusing people who have a different viewpoint (this literally happened a few weeks ago at Berkley). The disconnect is staggering.

    The progressives seek to destroy our culture, and replace it with…what exactly?
    The progs can’t or won’t say, but we can certainly get a glimpse of what’s to come if they succeed. Has “diversity” of the progressive kind made Europe a stronger and a better place to live? I think that hundreds of victims of Islam in Paris, Nice, Brussels, London, etc., might have an interesting answer to that.
    If “diversity” is so good, why not encourage it in the Muslim world? Let’s build churches in Mecca! How about that?
    Why not more diversity in Nigeria? Perhaps Mexico should diversify its demographics by taking in hundreds of thousands of “refugees” from the Middle East and Africa, and not funneling them northward? The same narrow-minded progs who worry about cultural contamination by missionaries of an isolated tribe in the Amazonian forest have no problem turning vast swathes of our cities into “no go” zones ruled by the practitioners of Sharia.
    Hypocrisy runs rampant in the liberal prog population.

    As a liberal and a believer in socialist principles I can tell you the left has gone bats**t insane and I have no idea what their end goal is or what sort of vision they have for the country and the world. One this for sure the modern left (neo-liberalism) has a deep hatred for anyone ethnically european or white. They also love love love billionaire and trillionaire elitists and globalists. The neo-liberal mass media is a cesspool of self-serving lies and filth–I love seeing Trump expose them for the vile creatures that they are.

    And the leftists can’t understand that their ‘religion of diversity’ doesn’t work very well in reality, at least the way they envision it. This is why separate countries exist in the first place, and they want open borders and unlimited mass migrations into the US and Europe. This might be a boon for the 3rd world–to be able to just “move on in” and start sucking down our country’s limited resources, but how does this benefit American citizens at all? How do massive influxes of 3rd-worlders help those of us who have to compete with them in the workforce? And yes I’d love to help 3rd-worlders to live a better life, but not at the cost of turning our own country into a dump, which is what happens when you let so many of them in. Americans already not finding good employment now have to compete in a job market saturated with desperate 3rd-worlders willing to work for poverty wages, and then driving down wages overall. The leftists cry “racism”, but what it really comes down to is simple economics. It really has nothing to do with race at all.

    Lots of Bulls-Eyes by Craig. Time for the left to walk their talk. Too many are spewing hatred and destruction, a temper-tantrum because their candidate lost. Time to suck it up and grow up.
