I guess there are two realities in this country right now, ours and Donald Trump’s. In our reality, Biden won the election and is presently sitting on his thumbs waiting for the federal government to allow him access to information related to National Security and COVID 19. Donald Trump’s reality is that the evil democrats have stolen the election, pulling off a coup attempt and the fake news is conspiring to have him overthrown. It’s more like a Hollywood movie script than reality. Is he so wacked that we should fear he might do something really stupid, like launch a nuclear strike against China or Iran? Or is he going to embarrass us by standing up at the inaugural podium to be sworn in while Biden looks foolish in the eyes of the world?
As we have learned from the media and from some people that share Trump’s views, the election was stolen and massive fraud came about from secret elements of the Democratic Party. One such individual who I believe has in his mind the complete destruction of the Democratic Party, and just the Republican Party alone to control the government, sees this scenario as a coup attempt against his beloved President.
For this person who I subscribed to only because my conservative brother in-law follows him. His opinions, like Trump are about America first, America is or should be a Christian country, nationalism versus globalism and of course Republican, conservative values versus Democratic, liberal values.
I’m not an extremist on either side of the political spectrum and for the longest time I dealt with this person only because he is a fellow writer. Last month he complained on his blog about his followers not following him anymore; his numbers were way down. A time ago my best friend and my brother in-law suggested I try to avoid writing on all things political because most of my followers are conservative and I turn them off with my ideas. So, I being the generous writer I am suggested to this fellow writer to curtail his conservative opinions; maybe that is the issue he is facing at this time.
He read my suggestion and of course was more than mildly insulted that I should dare call his opinions archaic and out of touch with the mainstream. So I guess, after seeing for myself how forty percent of the people have reacted to Trumps expositions that he is the victim of fraud and other crimes and misdemeanors from a political party bent on his demise, I shouldn’t be surprised that these extremists exist and see the reality the way they do.
I hope he finally sees the reality the same way the rest of us see it.
Here’s looking at you.
