The economy has improved by leaps and bounds and the stock market is booming. Retirement accounts are much larger than they were eighteen months ago. Employment rates for Blacks and Latinos are the lowest ever. Allies are friendly with us, and enemies are scared. Even “Rocket Man” in North Korea wants to talk! Despite all these incredibly wonderful events, Donald Trump continues to get bashed daily by leftists in the media, in children’s cartoons, and every way possible. Everything is Trump’s fault – or so they think.
Common sense says that Americans should be loving Trump and praising him for all the improvements that are happening, but they are not. Why is there so much hatred for Trump?
Lloyd Marcus, The Unhyphenated American, wondered the same thing, so he decided to ask some conservatives and prominent people in the Republican Party. He includes many of the replies in his article entitled “Why Trump Is So Hated by Leftists.” I do not know who Victoria Jackson is – or any of the other responders, but I like these statements because I believe them to be the truth.
I think Trump is hated by the left because his ideology, his words and actions, are the exact opposite of the left’s ideology. He is not a “globalist,” but loves America, our homeland; he knows that we can’t continue being the world’s number-one giver if we are not safe and successful ourselves. He knows that capitalism, not communism, will feed the poor; capitalism makes everyone richer, while communism makes everyone equally poor. He knows that free enterprise and less government regulation will provide jobs and boost our economy, not socialist handouts and overregulation.
He knows that less unemployment and getting out of debt will save our nation much more than wasting time and money on things like the scientifically unproven climate change hoax and its hidden goal of controlling the masses. He believes in individual freedom and responsibility, not government control. He’s not a secularist (new word for atheist, according to Julia Sweeney’s TED talk), but a defender of religious liberty, including Christianity. He is protective of Americans and not protective of our enemies, some of whom sneak into our midst through unenforced immigration law.
He thinks all lives matter, not just black lives; he respects the police, firefighters, and military instead of fanning the Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals flames of violent civil unrest and class and racial warfare. He is not a saint, and he doesn’t pretend to be. He believes in free speech, not political correctness. The left is confused; leftists don’t know how to respond to a politician who speaks from the heart, not from talking points. The left hates Trump because the Tea Party loves him.
I think that Jackson’s comments fairly well cover the reasons why leftists hate Trump. However, I will share a few other comments: “Donald Trump is the Real Deal…. the president is his own man” (Joe Miller). “He fights” (Larry Pratt). “Trump is hated not only by the left, but by the RINOs for the exact same reason: they can’t control him. They can’t intimidate or shame him…” (Nina May).
I believe that leftists and RINOs hate Donald Trump because they were convinced that they would be able to carry on with their planned destruction of America with Hillary Clinton in the White House. Trump was not supposed to be able to win the election, and they were positive that he would not. However, he did win, and their plans were thwarted. They act like spoiled children who have gotten everything that they ever wanted and are suddenly told “no.” Their excuses, tantrums, and hate show that they are immature in their thinking.
Conservatives stood up to the Obama administration and did their best to slow down his fundamental transformation of America. However, I did not see any riots in the streets or the venomous hatred that is spewed daily at Trump. Leftist college students cannot even listen to a conservative speaker without rioting, and they need their “safe spaces” where they will feel safe from anything that will offend them.
It is obviously time for the leftists and their supporters to grow up and become adults. We need them to come to the table for honest conversations and discussions that will move this country forward. Their unwillingness to do so seems to say that they are not interested in moving the nation anywhere but backward.
Meanwhile, Trump is moving his agenda forward to Make America Great Again. He does not appear to even hear the crying of the leftists, while he goes forward in making life better for all Americans and fulfilling the oath he took as President of the United States.
