Never ending protests
Variations of the political left of today seem to see moral/ethical issues as being all relative without distinction of right and wrong. Political and cultural issues, on the other hand, are viewed clearly as “us vs them”, good vs bad - devoid of any doubt. I truly wish I could be as certain of anything as they seem to be certain of everything.
Many millennials of today are the children and grandchildren of those protesting in the 1960s-80s. They ridicule the military draft avoidance of President Trump yet their parents previously advocated exactly the same. They say we are abandoning the Kurds who fought with us in Syria while their parents cheered our abandonment of Vietnam in 1973. No one is above the law and Trump has put us in a “constitutional crisis” we are frantically told. That does not hold true however if you are in violation of immigration law; especially if you live in a sanctuary city.
The duplicity is endless and is both fascinating and entertaining to watch.
There is more to the anguish and fear of the Left’s obsession with Donald Trump than just his election. Everyone acknowledges his conduct is eccentric; but that is only an excuse. He has been given endless free rent in their heads — why? His election did prevent the extension of the Obama years, but perhaps more fundamentally this is about power-not Trump’s behavior.
Trump openly exposes their policies and beliefs as the emotion driven shallowness of thought and long term ill effects they represent. That is the real core issue. Revealing that the “Emperor has no clothes” is unforgivable and therefore he must be removed.
Future generations will protest — just like their parents did.
