Trump is guilty of being Trump and not just that – he is a republican president. That’s all you need in order to get hate mail left-right-and-centre.
As a Trump fan I decided to actually take the time to read open letters of complaint to the current president of the United States of America. Writing public hate mail to the president seems to be the favourite pastime of any major publication. The best one so far being the Rolling Stone front cover featuring a smug looking Justin Trudeau with the headline: “Why can’t he be our President?”
The media and celebrity crusade is an ongoing never-ending effort that will only come to an end when Trump leaves office or be temporarily shut down if Trump rescues America from a potential nuclear holocaust or any other apocalyptic crisis.
So how did I end up reading this?
Well it all started when I came across a Guardian column called “This Week in Patriarchy,” any column with such a title will of course catch my attention as this is precisely the kind of battle cry that 3rd wave feminists repeat over and over and over and over and over and over. This is so descriptive of the current political orthodoxy that I just had to screenshot it:
My curiosity then led me to an article authored by the same woman, but this time for Marie Claire. Which Kind Of Trump Woman Are You? According to Valenti there is only one kind of “Trump Woman” : A fool.
I then came across another entry over at Marie Claire where she writes:
“The idea of universal female disdain for this president is a nice fantasy, but if we’re going to effectively fight back against Trump, we can’t afford to empathize with his enablers.”
We can’t afford to empathise with his enablers. Hmm … charming. She also writes:
“But conservative women aren’t unwitting pawns, and Melania and Ivanka don’t deserve an ounce of sympathy nor the benefit of the doubt.”
Now an interesting detail to note is that this smiling and charming looking Valenti woman, who doesn’t exactly seem that friendly when one looks at what she actually writes … has released another entry over at The Guardian where she laments that Facebook are not doing enough to stomp out hate-speech.
Hang on a second. Hate speech? So this Valenti woman can engage in that practise as much as she wants, but FB better get their act together and start hunting down those … ehm … other people guilty of the type of hate speech that Valenti does not approve of?
Just take a look at how funny this actually is. Here I’ve pasted in Valenti’s FB-has-to-combat-hate-speech-entry with her own hateful entry in Marie Claire underneath it:
Here we go again:
While reading about Rumsfeld I couldn’t help but notice certain suggested articles and had to see what these were all about….
Here we see the common narrative of “the president is being lazy.” Bush was accused of this; he was only playing golf apparently. Obama was guilty of this; he was never really working. Now Trump joins the club of ” presidents who just sat on their ass – according to their critics.” At this point there is simply no way that anyone can buy into this cheesy accusation and lame attempt at character assassination. Only young punks in their teens who don’t know any better will actually look at this and go: “wow!” Also note this disdain for New Jersey. That’s not very inclusive now is it? I thought that conservatives and “rednecks” and backwards “hillbillies” were supposed to be the narrow-minded, excluding ones. But here you got this Trump hater who funny enough is being rude towards the people of New Jersey. Hmm … what about the rights and the grievances of the people of Somerset County? Trump’s Holiday.
A quiet White House Is The Most Frightening Yet … because a leaking White House would be so much better:
“The most important tool for the millions of Americans who seek to hold President Trump accountable for his actions is information. The only way being governed by this White House gets scarier is if that pipeline disappears altogether.”
I have to admit that Jay Willis is a very entertaining writer in contrast to Valenti who is a hate-preacher regardless of what she might be thinking herself. The best one on this short list is from the very well-respected journalist Glenn Greenwald writing a serious article in The Intercept: A very good article, regardless of your political affiliation.
I came across his article while I was searching for a quote from Ret. General Tommy Franks.
I became a fan of Greenwald when he reported on our increased 1984-reality some years ago. I might not agree with everything he writes/stands for, but the above article that I linked to is excellent.
