Here is another post on bigotry for Tony (last comment here) and other big government Democrats.
What I want everyone to do is consider how he responded to a comment of mine. First he quoted me and then he responded.
“Consider yourself. You can easily and enthusiastically attack your own countrymen as the most horrible bigots. Why? It appears to be just because they do not belong to a particular political party (i.e., they don’t belong to the party of your choice).”
I thought we were over this. We are ALL bigots. It’s facing our bigotries that I was talking about. Pointing out that Trump’s appeal is to our worst bigotries is only dishonest if it is not true and I knew it were not true. I pointed to several Trumpisms that are blatantly bigoted. They are I fact the definition of bigotry. I can find you many more if you like. Tell me how what’s obvious is not true? (from here)
Think about the fact Tony said we are ALL bigots. As Democrat, Tony cannot deny that being a bigot is awful thing. If you read his comments, bigotry is in fact his biggest charge against Donald Trump. Is Trump a bigot? Sure he is. I just think Hillary Clinton is a worst bigot and that she belongs in jail. Just consider two examples.
- Anyone with half a brain and a Top Secret clearance knows it is illegal to keep classified information on a personal email server (Statement by FBI Director James B. Comey on the Investigation of Secretary Hillary Clinton’s Use of a Personal E-Mail System (www.fbi.gov)). So why didn’t Comey call for Hillary Clinton’s prosecution? If she can run a successful campaign to get the nomination of a major political party for President of the United States, where is a prosecutor going to find a jury that would convict her?
- She and President Barack Obama lied about why terrorists attacked our embassy in Benghazi, Libya (‘Let’s move on’: Hillary’s blithe response after devastating Congress report reveals she lied and lied again about what caused US Ambassador to die in Bengazi) (www.dailymail.co.uk)). Was that a crime? Maybe not, but people died, and she tried to hide evidence relevant to terrorist act.
Anyway, Hillary Clinton is an unsavory character. What about Trump? Is he is as wildly bigoted as Tony claims? I don’t think so. I have been to his web site. I don’t like everything I see, but I don’t see much evidence of blatant bigotry. However, since we are all bigoted, I guess Trump bigoted too.
Why the accusations of bigotry against Trump? Well, Trump is campaigning to be our president. So he has to talk a lot, and the partisan news media is bigoted too. Therefore, many in the news media would love Trump to suffer the death of a thousand sound bites reported out of context.
Here is a press conference that Trump gave yesterday.
Journalists like those to be found NPR picked up one remark 13 minutes and 15 seconds into the press conference.
- Trump Says He Was Being ‘Sarcastic’ In Asking Russia To ‘Find’ Clinton’s Emails (www.npr.org)
- Donald Trump’s Appeal to Russia Shocks Foreign Policy Experts (www.nytimes.com)
- Donald Trump Says He Was Being ‘Sarcastic’ About Wanting Russia to Find Hillary Clinton’s Deleted Emails (abcnews.go.com)
Since the press conference was quite interesting, it is worth listening to the whole thing, but don’t count on the news media to tell you that.
So what about the title of this post? What kind of government should we have? Well, given our tendency to make and believe outrageous accusations and nasty things about each other, we need a limited government. If we are ALL bigoted, who can we trust to run the government? No one. Therefore, we should not have anymore government than absolutely necessary.
What is among the worst abuses of government power? That is the power our government exercises to redistribute other people’s wealth. The abuse of such power begins in covetousness. That’s a sin.
Exodus 20:17 New King James Version (NKJV)
17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”
When we desire what rightfully belongs to another, we justify our taking with hatred.
