What’s blowing my mind away right now is the ant-Trump campaigns going on all over the place, voicing their concerns about racism, etc. and yet not one of them seems to realize the only ones spreading hate and even further division is themselves.  Through fear and refusal to listen to literally anyone and everyone who resembles the voice of reason, they’re not only making matters worse overall, but for themselves also.

I come across all sorts of material from wanting to see the man fail, to wanting to see him dead.  How is this not spreading the very hate you’re accusing Trump and his supporters of?  At this point you’re proving to be no better than the very people you’re criticizing against.  How is this a liberal way of thinking?

Bottom line it isn’t.  It’s one-sided, which in reality is racist in it’s own right.  Racism isn’t always about someone’s skin color or cultural background.  Racism is more about refusing to accept something that is different to us, or doesn’t necessarily agree with us.  The biggest problem with racism is that it hates without reason and refuses to listen to reason at the same time.  Being in such a state has no logic to it and quite frankly, people who embrace this sort of behavior are nothing more than lost souls.  Their better judgement is clouded with some sort of self-righteous attitude that literally poisons them from the inside out.

Racism has always been an issue for mankind since day one.  The greatest evils we’ve ever known use racism as a means to divide and conquer as many people as they can because they know this is the only way they can keep mankind stupid, blind and weak.

So of those who wake up and learn to see clean through racism in every form it comes in, they don’t get bogged down by allowing hatred and ignorance prevent them from seeing all the truths for what they really are.  They see far more than those who continue to embrace racism.  Those who embrace racism keep themselves blind and thus miss one opportunity after another to break out of the chains of confinement they’ve kept themselves in.  In the end, instead of becoming better than what they are, they’re rushing down a suicidal road that’s so riddled with poison that in the end they end up swallowed into the pit of obscurity.  A lonely death is almost always the fate of such individuals as their poison becomes so toxic not only does it kill them, but those closest to them who don’t deserve it.

It’s okay to disagree about something and it’s okay to voice an opinion about it and even rally for change, but it’s never okay to speak ill of a person, nor is it okay to wish them harm.  It’s also not okay to judge against someone without due cause.  To date, all those protesting against Donald Trump has yet to come up with a cause reasonable enough to warrant genuine consideration.  In fact, the very tactics they use, plus the level of disrespect they display, speaks more about themselves rather than the target they’ve focused their aggression on.

History has demonstrated this over and over again and it will continue to do so as new chapters in mankind’s legacy continues to be written.

The Holy Bible has countless stories of how people became so hateful and so racist that they ultimately destroyed themselves.  It has proven for every one finger you point at whoever it is you hate, three other fingers are pointing at yourself.  To me all it says is the hatred you have towards whoever it is you think deserves it is amplified towards yourself.

At the beginning of the 2016 election, when I learned Donald Trump threw his hat into the ring I was actually delighted.  I saw an outsider willing to do something he seemed to feel he had no choice but to do.  Remember, this guy wanted nothing to do with politics.  He just wanted to be a businessman and enjoy the fruits of his labor.

Even when Donald Trump as a person seemed to come across as some low-life, womanizing clown, there was something about him that suggested there was much more to the man than what you saw on the surface.  The media has always been hard on Donald Trump, long before he even became a household name.  The corporations have always had issues with Donald Trump as well.

And sadly, at one point I figured he was perhaps nothing more than just another puppet and was stringing the people along and was putting a brilliant show to make it look like he was against “the establishment” so that they’d believe in him enough to vote for him.  I feared once he got into power that he’d do exactly what previous political leaders have done, which is fall back on their promises and make situations much worse.  It’s hard not to think this way because that’s all we’ve ever seen.  And not just in America.

But one thing I could not bring myself to do was hate him.  He doesn’t deserve that.  I don’t know him personally enough to go there, plus I’ve seen too much goodness come from this guy to give much thought to how politically incorrect he is.  This is not something I can say about any other public figure of similar magnitude, let alone any political leader that comes to mind.

The one thing I kept telling people once I realized Donald Trump was going to become America’s next president is give the guy a chance.  That’s the humane thing to do and the loving thing to do.  Doing so means you love your nation and your neighbors enough to hope and pray that it will all work out, even if you don’t agree with the final outcome of the election.  I did this even with Barack Obama before him, as well as the previous presidents before him I watched come and go.

I already knew Obama was a bad choice and it’d be a bad run, but still figured the guy deserved a chance to either prove or disprove what I thought about him.  Sadly, he proved my gut instinct about him to be correct and a part of me still feels bad that I placed an ounce of hope in him into thinking he wasn’t as horrible as he portrayed.  But in many ways I’m glad I did because it proved I refused to allow hatred overcome who I really am.

And this is what people need to do where (not just) Donald Trump is concerned.  You know, I wasn’t altogether keen on the guy either at times because of his marital track record.  However, you cannot shred a man apart for being human.  You can shred him apart for being inhuman, which is the one thing he never was despite the haters’ best attempts to make him appear that way.

I didn’t start tearing into Obama until I fully realized just how monsterous he was.  However, did I ever hate him?  Nope.  I disliked his actions and disliked the treachery that came with it, but directly hating the guy was something I chose not to bring myself to do.  And the same can be said about Hillary Clinton.  I don’t wish ill will against her, nor Obama, nor anybody whom I’ve come to regard as enemies of humanity.  None of them deserve this, but they do deserve love and understanding because that’s how you overcome the racism.  This is how you stop limiting yourself with a narrow point of view and elevate yourself to a level you probably didn’t think you could reach before.

Donald Trump deserves this also from those who don’t agree he’s the material needed to rescue America from what still looks like an inescapable, doomed fate.  Whether you agree with it or not, he is the official president of the United States and is now in charge of what’s deemed to be the most powerful nation in the world.  Whether or not you like the man or agree with his policies, you need to find a way to work with it.

I’ve already told you earlier in this blog post the best way to go about it.  Now it’s up to you to decide whether or not you want to go there.  My decision is easy.  Instead of hating and remaining in some clouded state of denial, I opt for loving, hoping and understanding.  Those are great tools to work with in order to do something constructive for the good of all instead of something destructive that is always guaranteed to backfire.
