We can’t save them

“Your use of the word ‘deplorable’ is akin to the N word for African Americans and thus shows your bigotry for half of America” – Will Marler

This was a comment I received about one of my post, “the word ‘deplorable’ is akin to the N word”. As most of us honor a great American, statesman and hero in Senator John McCain a few, or as the delusional Mr. Marler over estimates “half”, continue to support and defend an immoral, classless, piece of shit in Donald Trump.

Want to understand how far the 39% have fallen? Two recent polls conducted by YouGov and The Economist found that the overwhelming majority of Trump voters don’t think that using the N-word makes white people racist and less than half think the slur is offensive. A combination of the two polls found that only 18 percent of Trump voters believe using the racial epithet makes white people racist and just 42 percent find the term offensive. Over 70 percent of Trump supporters indicated that they would still cast their vote for a political candidate even if they had said the N-word.

These 39% have lost their way. Don’t believe me? How about these little nuggets of wisdom from Trump supporter Jacob Wohl; “You’ve got to be kidding me! Calling black kids victims of segregation is as stupid as calling Jewish kids victims of the Holocaust.” and how about this gem “Most KKK and White Supremacist groups are run and funded by the Deep State FBI.”

“We gather to mourn the passing of American greatness — the real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice, those that live lives of comfort and privilege while he suffered and served.” – Meghan McCain

We can’t save these people, their minds and their morals have rotted to their core. Like Trump, they are too far gone. Reality has simply passed them by. But here is the thing, we don’t need them. Let their brains decay with hate and racism. Let their mouths spew contempt and scorn for this great country. Let their lifeless, white souls die a slow, and agonizing death. And let’s all praise the day they get to face brown Jesus, middle eastern Jesus and answer the question “What did you do for the least of these? The brown ones? The gay ones? The Muslim ones? The poor ones? The black ones?” 

“We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries that have sown resentment and hatred and violence in all the corners of the globe. We weaken it when we hide behind walls, rather than tear them down; when we doubt the power of our ideals, rather than trust them to be the great force for change they have always been.”- Senator John McCain

  1. They will be in absolute SHOCK to face a Jesus that isn’t a white American.

  2. But guys, the picture on the church wall proves Jesus was a white, blue-eyed blond with long flowing straight hair. WTF? Could it be that every one of us is Jesus in disguise? Great verse from Matthew 25.

    A normal person, much less a moral president would have cancelled any public events this week so to be sensitive to the nations loss of a sitting senator. Instead the person in the white house went to a rally where he did not even offer sympathy to the McCain family for their loss. I recently met a woman who was proudly spouting her support for tRump. I asked her questions and she was so misinformed about everything he has done and said. She was adamant how tough a man he was because look how well he was taking all these unfair attacks on him, and he just shook them off. According to her tRump saved the country from the horrors done to it by Obama. I was stunned. I really got to the point where I did not know what to say. She had bought the fox line on tRump hook, line and even the sinker. Hugs

  5. They don’t understand that deplorable describes behavior, which can be modified. Referring to someone by an epithet that is about the color of their skin (which cannot be modified) and claiming it’s the same thing is the worst kind of false equivalency.

    Deplorables is not a strong enough adjective. Those who continue to support support Trump have no moral compass. We are on the path to oblivion.

    What worries me, is that I saw an item (either on the news, or in another program) that even ‘not-white-souls’ support Trump.
