WHY SUCH HATRED FOR DONALD TRUMP?

(from here)

I am not especially smart or intuitive. So trying to figure out something as complicated as people is a greater challenge than I want.  Sometimes, however, my curiosity gets the better of me. Since politics fascinates me I want to know: why do they hate President Donald Trump?

Remember when then candidate Donald Trump said this (on July 27, 2016).

“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press,” Trump said during a news conference in Florida.
“They probably have them. I’d like to have them released,” he continued. “Now, if Russia or China or any other country has those e-mails, I mean, to be honest with you, I’d love to see them.” (from here)

That resulted in reports like the one below.

At the time I was laughing with Trump, and I was baffled by the news media’s reaction. They could not tell he was joking, that he was making fun of them? How childish can you get? Yet many in the big news media are adamantly determined to punish Trump, no matter what it takes.

What makes people so irrationally angry? I suppose it is not always the same thing, but some of the possibilities are obvious. Threaten a child and that child’s mother will annihilate you if she can. We are protective of what we care about. So I guess the real question is what we care about. What do we care about most?

What we care about most is our God. If what we care about most is not God, then we idolize whatever that might be.  When Trump starting making fun of the big news media, he attacked their egos, which I suppose those people have wrapped up in their jobs. So when Trump ridiculed the big news media, was it their god, their self worship, that he made laughable? Perhaps.

What about the Democratic Party? When Trump highlighted the party’s schemes to steal the nomination from Bernie Sanders — when he suggested Hillary Clinton belongs in jail — what god did Trump attack then? Why couldn’t these people see an obvious joke? Well, they didn’t. So we got interviews like this one.

Essentially, before the Democrats had evidence of anything, these erstwhile doves had become Putin/Trump hating hawks willing to accuse anyone who objected of carrying water for the Kremlin.

If evidence does not matter — if truth does not matter — then what is the god of the Democratic Party? What idols have these people sacrificed their integrity to? What do they endlessly seek to grow and to nurture? Is it the seat the their power, the almighty state? Perhaps.

Of course, when we ask questions about others, we should examine ourselves first. Are Christians protective of the God of Abraham? I suppose we are, but are we irrational about it? When we consider the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit — the Trinity — does God need our protection, or do we need His? Rationally, we know that the latter is true. Therefore, while some Christians may protect God irrationally, just as idol worshipers protect their gods (knowing in their hearts the fragility of their god), Christians have no logical reason to do so. What need does the Creator have of our protection? All we have to give Him is our love and obedience. All God demands is that we love Him above all else, that we demonstrate that love by loving our neighbors as we love our self, but I suppose that is easier in theory than it is in practice.

Do I seem harsh? Am I being terribly impolite? Is it appropriate to say that the news media and Democrats hate Trump irrationally? Is it true? Consider that the news media and the Democrats have effectively accused Donald Trump of treason, a capital offense. When the people involved are lying about such charges, wasting hundreds of billions of our tax dollars buying votes, plainly lying about the powers given to them by our Constitution, refusing to enforce our borders, and winking when the members of their own party break the law; don’t we need to ask such people what gods they are willing to sacrifice their neighbors for?

    1. Your pingback has almost nothing to do with this post. Your post is about complaints from people about Donald Trump’s supposed womanizing. Given the source of the complaints, those complaints are generally quite hypocritical. Given the readiness of Liberal Democrats to destroy men without due process when a sexual harassment complaint is made against them, I supposed I should have mentioned it anyway, but I did not bother.

      My post focuses on the charge that Trump supposedly colluded with the Russians. There is no evidence to support the charge, we Democrats got their special prosecutor anyway. That is not good, to say the least.

  1. People hate Trump for the same reasons they hate God, hate one another, hate their neighbor, hate themselves — It’s all explained in …. ◄ 2 Timothy 3 ►
    King James Bible
    Evil in the Last Days
    1This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 6For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. 9But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.

  2. Okay, I read the links.

    A picture is worth a thousand words, and by the look of things, German spending (as a percentage of GDP) on its own defense looks to be at about the lowest point in four decades.
    https://www.pgpf.org/chart-archive/0184_ally_defense_spending

    Having mentioned above that you want no doubt the US military will come to your defense in time of need…shouldn’t you do a little better toward your own defense?
    Do you want us to have the ability to help you out in time of need, or just a little puppet force to show we “did out part”?
    Assuming it’s the former 2 percent has been the goal for a long while…it’s not the 2024 projection you seem to believe it is.
    No, most NATO countries (as noted at the Riga summit) are not meeting that objective (there is no enforcement arm, we can only ask). But few are failing it quite so egregiously.
    I agree that Trump isn’t asking very nicely, but we’ve been asking nicely for a while now.
    It’s possible (probable from the sound of things) that you’re unaware of the shape your military is in.

    Here is a link to data from the NATO participation in the Balkan campaign

    Figure 3.2—In-Theater Aircraft Buildup is particularly telling. US forces conducted the majority of bombing missions and almost all of the night time missions (if memory serves, our allies weren’t trained in night bombing for the most part, and some of them had unions that forbid “off hours”)
    And things were better in 1999 than they are now. We had more aircraft. It’s same for our allies.

        1. I’m on the fence…I’ve mentioned before it is uniquely refreshing to not read words released only after begin scrubbed through the PR boiler room.

          Think this about sums it up (I’ve heard it elsewhere, can’t take the credit):
          Trump supporters take him seriously but not literally.
          Trump detractors take him literally, but not seriously.

          1. That’s pretty good! As funny as it is, I think that quote is correct. Most of the people I have heard who support Trump never expected him to accomplish as much as he has.
