The dark side of free­dom

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

Be­ing care­ful not to gen­er­al­ize all lib­er­als, I think their so­cial­ist mem­bers are an­grily pro­ject­ing onto con­ser­va­tives the ha­tred that they are man­i­fest­ing them­selves. Have you re­cently de­bated with a racist, big­oted, mean, ar­ro­gant, anti-demo­cratic, Aryan, Putin-lov­ing Wik­ileaker? I cer­tainly have not, and I’m will­ing to bet the ma­jor­ity of Amer­i­cans have not ei­ther.

Have you ever been an­gry and blamed a prob­lem on ev­ery­one and every­thing other than your­self, just to find out to your cha­grin that it re­ally was your fault? You then ei­ther try to save face, make up for it, or you be­come a hate­ful scorner. Most peo­ple, es­pe­cially chil­dren, have to be shown why their own ac­tions led di­rectly to the prob­lem they are hav­ing, and of the con­se­quences to be had if they don’t change some­thing. When con­fi­dent adults used to get­ting their way and com­fort­ably hav­ing done so for some pe­riod of time, all of a sud­den are com­pletely and em­bar­rass­ingly re­pu­di­ated and re­moved from their pre­ciously-held sta­tus quo, you get Novem­ber and De­cem­ber 2016 in Amer­ica. And, these adults are care­less about the con­se­quences.

When all of the fear, angst and anger from the left­ist so­cial­ists and their un­learned fans came to a boil­ing point, we got more riots, race wars, flag burn­ings, soft me­dia coup at­tempts and a move­ment to re­move Amer­ica’s elec­toral col­lege.

On the other hand, there is next to zero amount of fear on the in­formed right about Pres­i­dent-Elect Trump’s up­com­ing ad­min­is­tra­tion. By “in­sult­ing” his way to the top, as he is charged, Trump merely en­cap­su­lated and gave voice to the opin­ions of the un­heard mil­lions of suf­fer­ing, frus­trated and for­got­ten Amer­i­cans who for a long time hated the sleazy, elit­ist, blindly-ar­ro­gant, to­tal­i­tar­ian, spoiled ego­tists of main­stream news or­ga­ni­za­tions and ca­reer politi­cians.

These ar­ro­gant left­ist knowit-alls are like chil­dren sit­ting in the mar­ket­place cry­ing that they piped to us, but we didn’t dance, and that they have mourned to­ward us, but we have not wept. These peo­ple re­ally suck at lead­er­ship, at moral­ity, at fair­ness, at fix­ing in­ner cities, at re­duc­ing Amer­ica’s debt, op­er­at­ing the Depart­ment of Veter­ans Af­fairs, the CIA, the Depart­ment of Jus­tice, and es­pe­cially bad at tak­ing polls and sur­veys.

They got Trumped and they can­not stand it, nor ac­cept this loss with hu­mil­ity. They got used to un­chal­lenged power, and gave them­selves over to it. Is not this hu­man voice one rea­son that Amer­ica was formed as a con­sti­tu­tional repub­lic? Farid Jalil, Hugh­esville
