It’s become so ugly and contentious on Twitter I am almost ready to leave and not look back. I’m staying for 2 reasons;i can at least see my grand-daughter as she is growing up(that’s very important)and i can support our President.If those 2 things weren’t true i’d be deleting the account this minute.Honestly if it weren’t for Twitter i would have no idea what Alexa looks like or how she is doing. It’s amazing how she has turned out and grown up so much. Twitter inadvertently turned out to be a positive thing in that regard.
I hope it doesn’t sound like I’m stalking her. I was afraid that’s what it was coming to at first. I know what the deal is.On the other hand who would not want to see their own grand child? From her Twitter account *i found her instagram account with absolutely fantastic pictures and finally her you tube channel [with 1 video that made my day]. I now have a kind of mental image of who she is and what she’s like.She’s pretty special.
The one thing missing is that she doesn’t talk about her folks much. I’ve learned a few things though.
As for supporting our President i didn’t think it would be as ugly and contentious as it has been. Downright ugly. I believe it is an accurate reflection of the left and what the Trump supporters are up against.
The Texas massacre report should have been about the tragedy,the victims,the victims families and loved ones from the very beginning. All I read on Twitter was how it was the fault of Trump and his white supremacist,racist supporters. It was minutes from the time the shooting was reported until it was politicized. i highly doubt the people in Texas and Ohio care much about politics right now. All of us-left and right-Dem & Rep-Trump supporter & Never Trump,conservative,liberal and everyone in between could have come together with love,prayer and support for those folks.
What i read were tweets using a horrific event to push an agenda and attack the President. It’s shameful and disgusting no matter how they spin it.
A few facts:
1.the President has never and i do mean NEVER attacked legal immigrants.He does support a merit system and has asked Congress to work on it. Unfortunately,it’s not happening.They’re too busy trying to take down the Pres. His wife Melania is a legal immigrant. Why would he oppose LEGAL immigration?
2 when the caravans were heading for the United States in huge numbers he called it an invasion. It was an accurate description. It looked like an invasion to me.
4. Pres Trump backs our Law Enforcement Departments and officers.This doesn’t mean he believes they take the right course of action every time or there are no bad apples, but he knows what sacrifices the majority make to keep their communities safe.
5. Some of these countries are not sending their best. Some are rapists and murderers.Some are gang members. We know there’s human trafficking and drug running. I could delve into the whole issue far deeper than this but it would take a whole entry( probably 2 or 3) Suffice it to say our immigration system is broken and needs fixed Think the Democrats or Republicans seriously want to tackle it?
The Democrats are totally against it[real immigration reform]. They are simply advocating for open borders and the elimination of ICE.
They’ve supported sanctuary cities for years.
Most in the Republican party have let the Democrats,liberals and media bludgeon then into submission. There are SOME Republicans that let the Democrats have their way. They actually support illegal immigration too;for their own reasons.The Dems only want the votes.
The election of Donald Trump brought the issue of immigration to the forefront. He was accused of being racist,xenophobic,’mean’,heartless-a hater.When,of course, they weren’t accusing him of being a Russian Agent.
6.The Democrats and their media arm spent every day from the time Trump got elected to this very minute working to destroy the Trump presidency .When you have the media working on his destruction around the clock and putting it out as news you do have an audience that buys it.
7. i can understand propaganda in other countries and expect it there. They have no choice. Hardship,Prison or even execution are not attractive. You report as the state demands it. In the United States there is no such threat so they are WILLING participants.
What does all this have to do with the recent tragedies of El Paso and Dayton? Plenty.
The media and the Democrats use the narrative THEY have built about Pres Trump-not who he actually is-to convince people he is a racist,white supremacist, fascist bigot and that his supporters are no better. Don’t they grasp how incredibly wrong it is to do that?
NEWSFLASH: This isn’t about President Trump anyway.
The shame in all of this is that the blame falls squarely on the shooters and the media isn’t saying that.The shooters are responsible. The suffering people of these communities need our love,prayers and support. They don’t care about politics. They haven’t had a chance to even mourn their losses as individuals or a community and the event is being exploited. i can hardly stand to go on Twitter after reading some of the comments today.
It’s hard to take.
The Democrats i might be able to understand-the media has no excuse. It’s shameful.
*someday i’ll explain how i did it. SOMEDAY.
