Where Are They? - And Response (2)

Saturday, June 17, 2017

Where are they? Where are the posts by those who almost daily blast President Trump calling him an illegitimate president and a traitor? Where are their posts denouncing this recent attack on a member of Congress? Where is their rejection of a "play" in Central Park depicting a character representing President Trump being stabbed to death in a parody of the death of Julius Caesar?

Where is the man obsessed by the Tea Party who boasts that he is "a real American" or the man "who fears for America" presumably because Trump won? Where are their denunciations of this bloody attack, the reprehensible rhetoric, the Portland anarchist riots, the stabbing parody or Kathy Griffin's deranged photo?

Do they not see the Left is just normalizing violence by people against government officials they don't like or even despise? I can't imagine their outrage if this hate was directed toward Mrs. Clinton. I remember their posts attacking unidentified Tea Party members for supposedly spitting or taunting. And they were quick to assign motives. But where are they now?

CNN posted some very nasty rants against "Mr Trump & Company" on this Bernie Sanders campaign worker's Facebook page and now CNN reports he had a hit list of Republicans. Actually it was a kill list. So when are the people who call Republicans and conservatives witless, racists and bigots going to see they might be contributing to an atmosphere of violence?

When one finally does get around to making a comment it will most likely be a lecture on the need for gun control or how disturbed this man was.

Thank you, Mr. Miller, for your post.  Hopefully they are in classes learning respect and how to become gracious in defeat.  They, along with main street media, have stooped to all time lows and doubtfully will they ever gain respect in their reporting or talk.  They are destroying this country from within and are doing more damage to their party then they can begin to realize.  If they continue on this same path I fear the day will come when the right decides they have had enough and take control of the situation just as these 63 million people put our great President Trump in office. 

For the most part the right is an extremely patient and non violent bunch.  However if you continue to back a dog up in the corner sooner or later he is going to come out fighting. 

Never was I a fan of Obama but he was our president and he garnered respect and support from the majority of the right for eight years.  I didn’t block streets in protest, hold a head depicting decapitation, staged a play killing him, etc., etc.  I didn’t like him but at least I had enough respect for our country to avoid violent protesting with hate filled passion. 

Time for the right to take control of their violent people and put them in place.  Then maybe they can gain my respect someday as a party of intelligent people with different views then mine.  I can respect them for their views even though I disagree and can do this with class, not violence.  I was raised a hard core Democrat in the 60’s and 70’s and we never acted like they do now.  Eventually I became independent and voted for those I liked the best because of their views.  Now I’m pretty much a solid Republican and support their agenda 99 percent. 

Keep on draining the swamp, President Trump.

Improvements On The Glass Bridge

The glass bridge has been an embarrassing situation almost since the day of installation. At least two or three and usually more sections of glass have continuously been cracked. This creates fear in pedestrians and causes most to want to use the middle metal section. In addition, it has not been maintained for cleanliness.  I observed that both the front section and ...
