Liberal Woman Attends Trump Rally, Realizes Trump Supporters are NOT ‘Racists’

A progressive woman who attended a Trump rally was shocked to find that she had been misled by claims all Trump fans are racists.

A self-professed progressive woman who attended a Trump political rally was shocked to find that she had been misled by leftists who claim all Trump fans are racists.

After attending a Trump rally in New Hampshire, writer and liberal activist Karlyn Borysenko wrote an article about her experience where she had to profess shock that Trump fans are nice folks who just have different political ideas instead of wild-eyed racists who hate every non-white male on the planet.

In her Medium.com article, Borysenko noted that she was goaded to attend the rally because of her experiences with the online knitting hobby community which recently exploded with hate-filled liberals deleting and ex-communicating knitting hobbyists who happen to be Trump voters.

Yes, you read that right. The knitting community — yes, the thing where you make baby booties and scarves out of yarn, THAT knitting — recently became a hotbed of hate when leftist knitters went on a crusade to force all non-liberals out of the hobby’s biggest online knitting websites.

It was a huge controversy last year and the hate spewing from people she would normally side with set Borysenko aback a bit. She said she found herself unable to see the connection between politics and knitting which would prompt purges of Trump supporters.

The hate liberals spewed on the knitting sites shocked her for how unhealthy and mentally they were. Indeed, the unnecessary venom and vitriol against people who did not really know each other caused her to rethink her own animosity towards Trump voters.

The woman admitted that she started out as “one of those”:

You see, I was one of those Democrats who considered anyone who voted for Trump a racist. I thought they were horrible (yes, even deplorable) and worked very hard to eliminate their voices from my spaces by unfriending or blocking people who spoke about their support of him, however minor their comments. I watched a lot of MSNBC, was convinced that everything he had done was horrible, that he hated anyone who wasn’t a straight white man, and that he had no redeeming qualities.

But the hate she saw made her rethink her own feelings:

But when I witnessed the amount of hate coming from the left in this small, niche knitting community, I started to question everything. I started making a proactive effort to break my echo chamber by listening to voices I thought I would disagree with. I wanted to understand their perspective, believing it would confirm that they were filled with hate for anyone who wasn’t like them.

So, she began actually talking to people on the opposite side of the political divide and found things were not what she thought they were:

That turned out not to be the case. The more voices outside the left that I listened to, the more I realized that these were not bad people. They were not racists, Nazis, or white supremacists. We had differences of opinions on social and economic issues, but a difference of opinion does not make your opponent inherently evil. And they could justify their opinions using arguments, rather than the shouting and ranting I saw coming from my side of the aisle.

Imagine that.

And once she got to the Trump rally, she was absolutely bowled over with the optimism she found:

Once we got inside, the atmosphere was jubilant. It was more like attending a rock concert than a political rally. People were genuinely enjoying themselves. Some were even dancing to music being played over the loudspeakers. It was so different than any other political event I had ever attended. Even the energy around Barack Obama in 2008 didn’t feel like this.

On the other hand, she has been to rallies for the Democrat candidates, too, and their atmosphere pales in comparison:

I had attended an event with all the Democratic contenders just two days prior in exactly the same arena, and the contrast was stark. First, Trump completely filled the arena all the way up to the top. Even with every major Democratic candidate in attendance the other night, and the campaigns giving away free tickets, the Democrats did not do that. With Trump, every single person was unified around a singular goal. With the Democrats, the audience booed over candidates they didn’t like and got into literal shouting matches with each other. With Trump, there was a genuinely optimistic view of the future. With the Democrats, it was doom and gloom. With Trump, there was a genuine feeling of pride of being an American. With the Democrats, they emphasized that the country was a racist place from top to bottom.

Sounds about right, doesn’t it?

It all led the writer to conclude that the Democrats are doomed:

I think the Democrats have an ass-kicking coming to them in November, and I think most of them will be utterly shocked when it happens, because they’re existing in an echo chamber that is not reflective of the broader reality. I hope it’s a wake-up call that causes them to take a long look in the mirror and really ask themselves how they got here. Maybe then they’ll start listening. I tend to doubt it, but I can hope.

Actually, let’s hope Democrats don’t realize all this until November 9th.

“Amazon’s attempt to smear Chris Smalls, one of their own warehouse workers, as ‘not smart or articulate’ is a racist & classist PR campaign. If execs are as concerned abt worker health & safety as they claim, then they should provide the full paid sick leave ALL workers deserve.”

Nancy Pelosi Claims She Knew About Coronavirus Threat, Defends Prioritizing Impeachment

Published

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi claims that she knew about the coronavirus threat early on and defends prioritizing impeachment at that time.

Thursday on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and President Donald Trump’s attempt to blame impeachment for any delays in the response to the coronavirus pandemic is meant to distract from the president not wanting face “reality.”

Andrea Mitchell: “Do you think it’s fair for Mitch McConnell to suggest that impeachment slowed down the federal response?”

Nancy Pelosi: “That’s just sad. They can’t handle their jobs, I guess, because what are they saying? We ignored it? It was self-evident. Most people knew about it and certainly those of responsibility.”

Pelosi added: “So I say of that, either you can’t handle your job, but don’t blame impeachment on that. Just blame it on the fact that you didn’t want to face the reality. That denial and that delay cost lives.”

Watch Los Angeles Mayor Urge Citizens To Rat Out Businesses Violating “Safer At Home” Order

Published

on

During an announcement on Tuesday, the Mayor let people know that he would be very grateful for the help of concerned citizens willing to drop a dime on noncompliant businesses and that he planned to “reward” them for their snitching. “Snitches get rewards.”

Garcetti said that since the stay at home order was put in place, the city has been told about construction sites that have not been following the guidelines set out in that order…

Garcetti also used the Tuesday briefing to encourage people in the community to report businesses that continue to violate the order.

“If any non-essential businesses continue to operate in violation of the stay at home order, we’re going to act to enforce the safer at home order and ensure their compliance,” he said…

You know the old expression about snitches, well, in this case, snitches get rewards,” Garcetti said. “We want to thank you for turning folks in and making sure we are all safe.”

This is how the tyranny works… ‘snitch’ on your neighbors, ‘snitch’ on your family members, and we will reward you! Sound familiar?

Twitter jumps:

Mayor Garcetti is literally trying to bring about civil unrest. Pitting neighbor against neighbor. How long do you think it will take for some victim of his plan to retaliate against a suspected rat?

NY Gov. Cuomo Releases Violent Sex Offenders Due to Coronavirus

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has released eight high level sex offenders to “save” them from catching the coronavirus in jail.

Published

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has released eight high level sex offenders to “save” them from catching the coronavirus in jail.

Despite the severity of their crimes, Cuomo insisted that he released only “non-serious” criminals.

“We’re releasing people who are in jails because they violated parole for non-serious reasons,” Cuomo said on Friday, according to the New York Post.

Cuomo ordered New York’s Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS) to release 400 inmates in New York City and 700 across the rest of the state.

But far from mere victims of circumstance, three of none sex offenders hat Cuomo released were labeled “Level 3” violators that have a “high risk of re-offense.”

Not only did Cuomo release these dangerous rapists, but he paid for them to stay at a Holiday Inn Express!

“All three of the level 3 sex offenders staying at the Holiday Inn Express have been convicted for the rape of minors,” WIVB reported.

Cuomo’s excuse for releasing more dangerous criminals back into the populace also makes no sense whatsoever.

The gov. claimed he was trying to protect these criminals from getting the coronavirus in jail. However, there is no evidence whatever that any of New York’s jails are infected with the virus. That according to Patrick Phelan, the Chief of Police in Greece, New York.

Clearly, Cuomo is simply using the virus as an excuse to keep releasing dangerous criminals back into the public.

VOTER SUPPRESSION: VA Dem Governor Orders Everyone to Stay at Home Until One Day AFTER GOP Primary

The Gov. of Virginia has told everyone to stay home because of the coronavirus with an order that will lapse one day AFTER the GOP primary

Published

on

The controversial Democrat Governor of Virginia has told everyone to stay home because of the coronavirus with an order that will conveniently lapse one day AFTER the Republican primary, and the state’s GOP is furious.

This is just the sort of anti-American, undemocratic garbage that Democrats pull, isn’t it?

And Democrats claim that it is the GOP that are always trying to suppress the vote and disenfranchise people, isn’t it? YEt her

The state GOP is none too happy about Gov. Ralph Northam’s political dirty tricks.

“The Republican Party of VA issued a statement asking @GovernorVA Ralph Northam to explain why he chose June 10th as expiration for stay-at-home order given June 9th Repub primaries. They say it is “convenient” but (barely) stop short of calling it voter suppression.”

You’ll recall Gov. Ralph KKK Northam as the governor who was caught wearing a KKK hood in a college photo.

Northam took a wave of criticism early in 2019 after a photo showing him wearing a Klan hood in college went viral.

In February of last year, an avalanche of information that depicted Northam as a long-time racist came out, including that his college nickname was “Coonman.” But the photo that appeared on a page of the governor’s med school yearbook was the most damning. It depicts a student in blackface standing next to a student dressed in the white robe and pointy hood of the Ku Klux Klan.

On a Friday evening, Northam apologized for the photo and even confirmed that he was one of the two figures in the photo — though he refused to say if he was the student in blackface or the one in the KKK hood.

Still, many think he is the one in the Klan hood.

GOP Congressman’s Bill Rescinds Kennedy Center’s $25 Million After it Fired its Employees Despite Bailout

a GOP congressman has introduced a bill to rescind the bailout cash Democrats gave the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Published

on

Last week we reported that the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts laid off its employees only hours after the Democrats gave them a $25 million bailout. Now a GOP congressman has introduced a bill to rescind that bailout cash.

Rep. Ryan Steil (R-WI) says the $25 million Democrats gave to the center is “inappropriate funding” out of the coronavirus package.

“Families and workers are struggling to pay rent, pay their mortgage, and buy groceries,” Steil said in a statement reported by Kenosha News. “Americans need relief and assistance now which is why I supported the CARES Act. However, some in Washington felt it was important to spend $25 million of taxpayer dollars on the Kennedy Center when there are obviously bigger needs right now.”

“This is frivolous spending in the midst of a national emergency,” Steil added.

The Wisconsin rep. was outraged by the bailout in the first place. He told The Daily Caller that he was against the pork going to the Kennedy Center as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

“So, we were negotiating this bill,” the congressman said. “[House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) holds up getting relief to Americans to try to get this and other things in the bill. And so the day that the House passed this bill, I drove from Janesville, Wisconsin, to Washington, D.C., to be there.”

“I spoke on the bill, spoke about how I thought the funding for the Kennedy Center was inappropriate,” Steil addded. “And then before I left Washington, D.C., to drive back home, the day we passed the bill, I dropped this bill into the hopper and introduced it to start day one. The moment after we passed a bill to begin the work of improving it and getting out of the bill, inappropriate funding.”

He concluded saying, “A handful of days later, after this passes and you find out that the Kennedy Center is laying people off. That’s almost the icing on the cake.”

So far, 15 Republicans have signed on the co-sponsor the bill.
