Cupcakes, snowflakes need to get over it
After reading the Rev. Charles Hoffacker’s diatribe in the Maryland Independent on Feb. 3, “Tyranny respects no one,” I feel that I must respond.
Rev. Hoffacker ended his letter with a statement of a German pastor as quoted by the National Holocaust Memorial.
I’ll begin my article with a quote I heard once and I don’t even know who came up with this quote. However, it has always stuck with me and I believe it applies very well in today’s political world: “Ignorance can be educated. Crazy can be medicated. There’s absolutely no cure for stupidity. The sad thing is they don’t even know they have this problem.”
Rev. Hoffacker begins his letter, “In the best American tradition, citizens are rising up against the injustice of Donald Trump. Thousands assemble at airports to protest unjustified actions. Millions march peacefully...”
Is he referring to the little cupcakes and snowflakes that always got a participation ribbon or trophy and always got their way in life while growing up? Which they never did.
The same ones that are now creating all the obstacles the normal public has to deal with while trying to get into or out of our airports around the countr y.
Or is he referring to the protesters that were on Inauguration Day destroying private businesses and burning a Muslim business- man’s limousine in our Nation’s Capital even before Donald Trump was sworn in or had even one action as president?
Or could he be referring to the idiots that destroyed private businesses and set fires to construction equipment at U.C. Berkley campus in California in protest of someone’s right to free speech? Or the knuckleheads at the New York college campus?
Has anyone even considered the economic cost to all these jurisdictions for lost productivity, tax revenue and police overtime? The politicians have all these policemen on overtime and will not even let them deal with the problem children in the way they need to be dealt with.
Rev. Hoffacker, Democratic talking heads, liberals and the mainstream media all like to bring up every chance they get to make some kind of political point that Donald Trump did not win the popular vote.
I could be wrong, but I don’t think so. When the Electoral College voted, Donald Trump got many more votes than whoever that was that came in second.
Our elections were set up as they are so that heavily populated states such as California, New York, as well as many more, which are populated with snowflakes, cupcakes and knuckleheads, don’t determine the outcome of important elections.
Right here is one perfect example. Rev. Hoffacker in his article referenced statements made by Gov. Jerry Brown of California. A person who has earned the nickname “Moonbeam” is the governor of California. Isn’t it amazing how the founding fathers could see so far into the future?
I, along with many more voters that grew up to adulthood without always getting a participation trophy, have lived through the last eight years agreeing with very little of what was being done to this country. We didn’t like where the country was headed nor did we like the fact that the person who came in second wanted to continue down the same path.
I’m old enough that I didn’t like the outcome of many previous elections. I have never protested, interfered with anyone’s free speech or movement through an airport, never set fire to anyone’s property, nor have I ever thought about throwing rocks at or shooting at police.
I dealt with the fact my choice lost; I then voted again in the next election. The last one was over.
Now everyone needs to get over the last election and the fact that the Democratic “sure winner” lost and move on with your lives. Otherwise in four years, about half the United States citizens and all the mainstream media are going to overwhelm our mental institutions.
We can be thankful because we all have good healthcare and our premiums have gone down $2,500. Does Obamacare cover mental conditions?
