First, ac­cept re­al­ity

The Washington Times Daily - - EDITORIAL -

Hil­lary Clin­ton and the main­stream me­dia have both failed to ac­cept the re­al­ity of Pres­i­dent Trump’s elec­tion win. Mrs. Clin­ton blamed James Comey, Wik­iLeaks, Rus­sia, The New York Times, Net­flix and more for her loss. Why the con­tin­ued re­sis­tance to Mr. Trump?

Blow­ing out of pro­por­tion ev­ery move, tweet or com­ment made by the pres­i­dent in or­der to make him look bad is a gi­ant neg­a­tive that doesn’t make a pos­i­tive. The me­dia know bet­ter — un­less, of course, they want civil war, mar­tial law and loss of free­dom.

Do we re­ally want the cookie to crum­ble? The me­dia and the po­lit­i­cal left would do best to ac­cept re­al­ity and work from there. Rather than get half the coun­try killed over is­sues on which we don’t agree, let’s learn from the ter­ror­ist atroc­i­ties in the United King­dom, Europe and the United States since Sept. 11, 2001. Ev­ery­one knows most Mus­lims aren’t ter­ror­ists, but why can’t we see that al­most all ter­ror­ists are Mus­lims?

This won’t go away with ‘kind talk’ in Ger­many. Preven­tion is bet­ter than a cure. God gave the Mid­dle East for Abra­ham’s seed (Ishmael and Is­rael).
