Liberal myths about Donald Trump
- The claim by prominent Democrats, media elites, RINOS, and liberals in general that Donald Trump could not possibly be elected to be president of the United States.
- The claim by liberals that Donald Trump is a fascist. In reality, Trump's agenda includes cutting back several areas of government. Trump says he plans on going directly to the American public via Twitter after he is elected president. There are no indications that Trump will have a state controlled media. Trump has some hostility to the media, which was colluding with the Democratic Party, especially Hillary Clinton, during the 2016 election.
- The claim that Donald Trump is a misogynist. The Washington Post reported, "Today, according to Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, there are more women than men holding executive positions in the Trump Organization, heading such departments as human resources, golf and hotel management, and global licensing, even though women make up just 43 percent of the overall workforce." Among two of the first picks to fill positions in the Trump administration were Gov. Nikki Haley of South Carolina as his choice to become ambassador to the United Nations and Betsy DeVos to serve as education secretary. Trump Tower was also constructed by a woman named Barbara Res who was also the first woman to construct a skyscraper.
- The claim that Donald Trump was unqualified to be president. He has executive experience and is a politically astute real estate developer in New York City and other geographic areas. Dwight Eisenhower, William Taft, Zachary Taylor and George Washington were never elected to a government office before becoming President of the United States. Barack Obama called Hillary Clinton the most qualified person ever to run for president while leaving out her major foreign policy failures and other shortcomings as Secretary of State.
- The myth that American liberals are terrified of Donald Trump. Michael Moore compared Trump's election to Kristallnacht, but no Trump supporters engaged in widespread acts of oppression or violence on the day of his election. No prominent liberals have fled the United States after Trump's elections, nor has there been a large flight of liberals from the United States after Trump's election. No prominent liberals who claimed they would move out of the country if Trump was elected have indicated that they were leaving the country.
- The liberal myth that Donald Trump is a virulent racist. One of the first acts of president-elect Trump was to pick the Indian-American Nikki Haley to become ambassador to the United Nations. In addition, Trump made several minority-appointments, including Ben Carson as HUD Secretary.
- Liberal denialism associated with the fact that Donald Trump was elected to be president of the United States. Twitter hashtags and protest cries of "Not my president" despite widespread liberal complaints that Donald Trump would not accept the results of the election. Liberal schemes of getting electors of the electoral college to switch their votes).
- Liberals claim that Trump colluded with Russia.
The liberal belief that an individual can claim to support the U.S. military, just not the mission and still be considered a 'Patriot'. In fact, the exact opposite is the truth. A liberal's patriotism, party-specific position, cannot support the troops if they are an impediment to their political left-wing strategy. The main reason for this has to due with passionate, partisan hatred for George W. Bush or any other conservative as commander in chief, the President of the United States of America. Liberals claim to support the military, claim not to support the mission, and refuse to support the Commander. The extremist left discounts the counter effect of troop morale. Understanding the true liberal mindset when it comes to supporting our U.S. troops, observe the often tried protest march. Though frustration boils over, actions lead from protest to outright sabotage or anarchism. Liberal credibility fails and lack of concern for the support of America shows. The left-wing cares so much for America's military they condone and actually prop up politicians that abuse troops with reckless accusations, negative media coverage and ego trips. Liberal protesters look the other way as war memorials are vandalized. Liberals protest America's severely injured soldiers at the Walter Reed Medical Center. Liberal protesters harass, damage or block military recruitment centers from operating business-as-usual. This leftwing position, the myth is successful in feeding media driven discontent and mediocrity shame. If the news is bad, a liberal is spoon fed. If the news is good, the spoon-fed liberal is oblivious. e.g. "a complete suspension of disbelief".
Patriotism, to your brother, who volunteers and risks the ultimate sacrifice out of love, will never be diminished. True patriots will always be in our gratitude and held in the highest light.
The myth liberals give says we need to restore America's image in the world. Again, this mostly has to do with liberals' negative view of President Bush. Liberals want the two linked even though the myth is false. They blame Bush and Iraq for the bad USA image but the truth is that the credibility of the American left is a worse image than America's image abroad. The main need for liberals to propagate this myth is the fact that socialist governments of Europe oppose the policy of Iraq. This further fuels liberals' political agenda to remove Republicans from power. Liberals love Europeans and cite their false socialist utopia at every chance. European opposition automatically reinforces their belief that America's image is damaged. As of 2008, most of the European leaders that opposed Iraq are no longer in positions of power. The result, European conservatives were elected who publicly aligned themselves with America.
Those liberals that use the myth and regularly bash the USA are often called the "Blame America First" crowd. Though they never seem to mention that America gives more in donations, in total dollars, than any other country on Earth. A sure way to change America's image in the world is to show the world we respect life. The repeal of Roe Vs. Wade would be a start.
Bad Successful Companies
In the attempt to point fingers and lay blame, the liberals produce the myth that profits made by successful companies are bad for America. Only a select group of companies are targeted for public shame. This is a false myth because successful corporations actually create jobs and tax revenue. Retirement funds and municipal bonds rely heavily on the profits from these companies. Also, the reason these companies flourish is because the capitalist system rewards their hard work. The liberals will try to create sympathy, that they care for the average American, they are the ones going after wrongdoers to make it right.
Liberals have demonized such companies as RJ Reynolds, Walmart, Halliburton and Blackwater. Their latest target is Exxon Mobil for their enormous profits and futures market oil speculators. Most of their accusations are absurd. Liberals in Congress don't blink an eye when it comes time to spend all that tax revenue generated. Liberals in Congress have been called on their hypocrisy for owning stocks in those companies. Which in turn, they divest their portfolios like nothing was ever wrong. For years, for decades, these companies have lobbied members of Congress, they have worked together for their common goals. In return, hefty campaign donations are their reward. Then for opportune reasons, liberals will publicly ridicule and verbally attack these bad, greedy capitalists. Corporate heads are brought before congress for a sideshow grilling to explain their actions. The Windfall Tax is just another example of the sham created by this liberal myth. Those companies make enough money, they should now be forced to give some back. They are threatened with nationalization  and further government regulation, a socialist scheme. As the price of gas fell, Congress just pretended like nothing ever happened, Big Oil off the hook.
The Economy From The Previous 8 Years
In an attempt to spread Bush hatred without mentioning his name, it is common for liberals to lie and say "we're in this economic mess because of the policies over the previous eight years." This is a myth, perpetuated by the corrupt in order to link bad economics with Conservatism and Bush policy. These liberals are the very same individuals that would not recognize George W. Bush's economic successes when the economy was creating jobs. Bush, McCain, Alan Greenspan are all on record as trying to fix the corrupt lending policies and government mismanagement for the past eight years. All the while Democrats were lining their pockets with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac donations. Democrats are overwhelmingly responsible if they should point fingers. Democrats Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, John Kerry, Charles Schumer and even Barack Obama are as much, if not directly, indirectly responsible for the failed economics of this country over the past eight-years. The same people who got us into this mess are now responsible for getting us out of financial meltdown. Blame can go all around on this one, both Republicans and Democrats. This was the result of many bad decisions over a long period of time. Then out of nowhere, financial calamity that nobody saw coming, except congressmen and women who were privy to bank collapses. They made good money while the rest of America suffered.
|“||The truth of the matter; Bush-era 4.5% unemployment, Obama-era will it go higher than 10%?||”|
In an attempt by liberals to claim the U.S. committed war crimes after 9/11, Congress held an investigation into Enhanced interrogation by the CIA. The report would absolve the role of Congress, who were advised along the way, and label waterboarding as torture in violation of the Geneva convention. Liberals, backed by comments of Senator John McCain, would argue that we put Japanese to death for waterboarding. It's a ridiculous notion that waterboarding was reason enough to justify execution. Japanese soldiers would beat U.S. servicemen to death, forced labor to death, starved to death. Many lost limbs to sword wielding commanders. Many U.S. serviceman and civilian contractors were executed without trial. Also, they were waterboarded. If GITMO detainees had it as bad as liberals claim, they wouldn't seek to stay. To equate enhanced interrogation with torture is a liberal myth.
