The Mindset Was Dark, Angry, And The Hatred Intensified With Time
The maleficent mindset festered in a self-imposed purgatory, until the people spoke and released it to do harm.
February 8, 2021
The mindset manifested itself in a vicious and contrived movement that has been building up over the past four years. Exactly when it began is open for discussion. Some might say during the descent on an escalator, while for others it was the fiery campaign across the nation by a rambunctious anti-establishmentarian real estate mogul and television celebrity hell-bent on changing conventional standards in Washington D.C. and post-modern America.
I believe we can pinpoint that exact moment in time when it finally sunk in, and the mindset erupted like a volcano. On Wednesday, November 09, 2016, at about 3:00 am Eastern Time, Donald Trump was declared the winner over Hillary Clinton for the presidency of the United States. There was a gasp that could be heard across the nation and the planet; for a moment the world may have stopped spinning on its axis. "How could this happen?" was the outcry. It was then the mindset, which was building, emerged from a dark place, and those who possessed it became enraged, filled with anger and hatred that their candidate lost to this outcast and buffoon.
Since then the anti-Trump, in all its bitterness and rancor, have been wallowing in a self-imposed purgatory, biding their time and waiting for an opportunity to strike and bring about an end to the nightmare. In that period, the Democrats, media, governmental agencies, Silicon Valley, and entertainment industry worked in unison, through devious and calculated efforts, to destroy the sitting president and his family; they showed no mercy in their relentless pursuit.
Democrats and their enablers were gifted with that opportunity and everything they’d hoped and waited and wished for, total and complete power of all branches of the government. It came in the form of a deadly virus, allowing their party access to a device that would change everything. They employed the pandemic and used its service to rewrite the rules of the vote. And finally, when their reckless and distorted dreams became reality in November of 2020, they rejoiced, partied, and planned their payback.
Not about policies and legislation for the good of the American people, no, the Democrats' first plan was to once again seek vengeance on the man they harbor such vitriol for, so deep is their bitterness and resentment that they did not have the capacity to see beyond their darkest desires. They cast aside their better angels, if in fact they ever had any, and opened up the gate and released the demon.
As fate would have it, and this may sound rather cynical, Democrats were given another gift. On January 06, 2021, outgoing President Trump spoke before an assembled crowd in Washington D.C. that numbered in the hundreds of thousands. He spoke of the election and what he believed was voter fraud, and he concluded his speech by entreating his supporters to march over to the Capitol and protest peacefully and patriotically. Regrettably, some could not contain their anger and impatience with the congress that was in session inside, so they struck out and breached the building, and the rest is history.
The Capitol incident caused great dismay and anger and was said to have threatened the very democracy of the nation. But for the Democrats' mindset, this was just another opportunity to wreak vengeance on their nemesis, Donald Trump, and for a second time, they imposed another impeachment on the former president for inciting an insurrection. On February 08, the House of Representatives will deliver the articles of impeachment to the Senate; let the circus begin, again.
The mindset, its plans and schemes against President Trump and his supporters, did not end with the impeachment. Their reckless and extreme agenda came to fruition, with this moment of truth. Newly elected Democratic President Joe Biden spoke at his inauguration on January 20. He asked the American people, a number of times during his speech, to come together and unite for the common good. He also included these words to emphasize his feelings for unity. I will use my “Whole soul, in bringing America together.”
Many saw this as a positive sign that perhaps we could move beyond all the rancor and bitterness and get on with the business of the nation and American people, especially dealing with the pandemic. I and many others believed otherwise, and sadly, it did in fact prove to be all a façade, surface speak, with no substance. What has followed since is further payback by the mindset.
Since taking office and within two weeks, with the stroke of a pen, President Biden has issued close to forty executive orders, many revoking those of his predecessor, and far more than the last three presidents combined. Some have said, in many cases, Mr. Biden did not know what he was signing. Most of these appear to be special favors to the far-left socialist wing of his party; and this from a candidate who during the campaign asserted that a president should legislate through “consensus,” or risk becoming a “dictator.”
Biden’s first order was in the form of a memorandum that sought to freeze anything President Trump signed in his final days in office. This was followed by executive orders, several of which are:
* Rejoining the Paris climate agreement
* Promote racial equity
* Discontinuing the ban on entry into the U.S. from Muslim countries
* Revise immigration enforcement policy, and discontinue construction of the border wall
* Admit illegal immigrants into the census
* Canceling the Keystone XL Pipeline
* Banning discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation
* Discontinuing funding for the border wall
These are but a few, and the Republicans and their constituents had no say in any of these orders, and there was no legislating. And unless the American people stand up and speak out, this radical leftist agenda, a manifestation of the mindset, will sweep over and across the nation like a tidal wave that will eventually consume us all in its miasmic furor.
