“Enough”

***WARNING: EXTREMELY POLITICAL POST; NOT SUITED FOR THOSE TOO SENSITIVE AND NOT OPEN TO OPPOSING VIEWPOINTS***

 

For years, our country has been living under the ideology that cops are bad, whites are racist, we can reverse the direction of the climate, all illegal immigrants are innocent people, islamophobia is unprecedented, and there’s more than one gender. Now I have a question for all of you who support this way of thinking: how do any of these preachings make any sense to a normal human being? Let’s go through each one by one, shall we?

“Cops are bad.” Of course there are a few bad apples, but that’s true of any profession. I bet you won’t be calling them racist pigs when your friend gets shot and needs help catching the criminal, or when you need help shooting down a burglar in your home since you don’t believe in guns.

“Whites are racist.” Again, some may still be, but as a whole, whites are as accepting of blacks as they are with any other nationality. And even if they are racist, so what? Does that mean you can’t go on with your life? Since when do the opinions of others matter so much that you simply can’t do anything anymore because someone’s way of thinking hurt your feelings? Also, it’s such a scam to prey on the feelings of those typically victimized to racism because there’s no factual basis for that statement.

“We can reverse the direction of climate change.” I’m all for recycling and taking care of our planet, but if anyone thinks that more governmental regulation can change the direction of climate is in serious denial. Especially since the politicians they worship all fly jets and live in mansions that require fossil fuels to keep them running, but that’s none of my business.

“All illegal immigrants are innocent people.” I understand that these people want a better life for their families, but I’m sorry, that’s not our problem. We have enough homeless and starving people in our own country, so why welcome more? Would Mexico or Canada ever have sanctuary cities for our poor people? Of course not, so why are we the exception? Obviously the answer is because these liberal politicians want to remain in power, so they figure if they come across as the magnanimous governor who cares about the poor, again, they’re in serious denial.

“Islamophobia is unprecedented.” Again, I know not all Muslims are bad and some are peaceful, but if you take a look at all of the major bombings and murders we’ve had under President Obama, there certainly is precedence that supports the majority of Americans thesis of their discontent with the ideology of Islam.

“There’s more than one gender.” Sorry to burst your bubble, but God created all people with either XX or XY chromasomes, so there’s no blending or fluidity of genders. We’re all born either boys or girls, and that’s that.

 

Im certainly hoping this is a really bad phase we’re going through. I hope that in ten years we’ll look back on this time and can’t believe how ignorant some Americans were. A lot of it is still rampant since nothing changes over night, but I really wish these people would give our new president a chance. If four years goes by and you’re still not happy with him, then elect a new guy, but threatening his life doesn’t help anybody.

I’m generally happy with the direction of our country since we were smart enough to elect President Trump and slowly come back to where we were, but there has to come a point where we start looking at ourselves and say, “Enough.”

Is “The Dream” still alive?

With Martin Luther King Jr. being celebrated today with his revolutionary words, actions, and timeless ideas, one has to ponder how applicable his dream is today. Obviously, we’ve come a long way from his time (no more segregation of schools, bathrooms or drinking fountains), but in some ways we’ve digressed to a time before he started his movement. It’s sad to say, but the black/white hatred returned with our first African-American president.

Before I continue, yes, I’m white, and no, I don’t know what it’s like being a black middle-class American, but that doesn’t mean I can’t speak the truth simply because my skin pigmentation isn’t dark enough to be permissible to do so. It’s sad that I  have to even express this view before I go on, but, sadly, this is today’s America.

The liberal way of thinking in 2017 is exactly what MLK fought against, and sadly, they’ve turned his dream into a nightmare. No, it does not make me a racist to say that our first black president brought us back to square one in terms of race relations. At one of the funerals of our unfortunately many police shootings last year, George W. Bush spoke very appeasing words that assured us that we must remain united. What did Barrack Hussein Obama say? “You guys know racism still exists in America, right?” If MLK was there to view his speech, he probably would’ve grabbed his microphone and took Obama back to school. Not only that, Obama always seemed to be up in arms about any shooting/brutality against a black person (regardless if it was deserved) but cat caught his tongue when it was vice versa. The job of the president is to not judge his citizens by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character, which clearly wasn’t in the memos for Obama.

The liberal mentality unfortunately does just that: judges by the color of the skin and pushes aside content of character. “Oh, you’re white? You can’t say things like that, you’ll be considered racist.” “You’re African-American? Okay you’re allowed to feel that way because we’re told that the darker the skin color, the more rights you have to your opinion.” So, while we all express our gratitude to the man that opened America’s eyes to the way we were treating her black citizens, let us not forget that many of us think/act the very same way he opposed and fought against. Let us come together as one United States of America and strive to exemplify his dream.
