Just read a blog post on why Donald Trump uses the word “tremendous” so much. It wasn’t the answer that attracted me to his post but his understanding, analysis and rationale of Trump that fascinated me. Love him or hate him, Trump is a fascinating character. Most people don’t understand him. They just say he’s “crazy” but that’s too easy. Personally I think he’s a genius. I fully agree with Matthew McFadden’s analysis of his personality. Finally someone who understands him. Good on you. Here is the link at Island of Misfit Posts here.
When I was still a young university student, I thought of myself as a liberal. I was told I was a liberal. I even volunteered for a Liberal candidate in a federal election. Why? I thought of myself as open-minded. I still do. Education in secular liberal universities today have a way of brain-washing young and pliable minds into thinking that being liberal is good, and conservativism is bad.
As a national election drew closer and I was of voting age. I began to critically examine the various party platforms of all political parties. As a young person, I wanted to be a well-informed voter. I wanted to my vote according to my conscience. To my surprise, I began to realize that my political leanings were more in line with conservatism. Needless to say, I had stopped volunteering for liberal candidates and began volunteering for conservatives.
I began listening to conservative talk-shows. I found that I could relate with them on many issues. I found myself agreeing with much of what they were saying. They just sounded like common sense.
Oh, and the idea that visible minorities are supposed to be liberal? Lies, lies, and more lies. I didn’t buy it. Conservatism has nothing to do with what race, ethnicity or gender you are. Liberals love taking advantage of people by dividing society by race. In the end, this causes more division. Conservatism exists around the world. There are conservative political movements in Asia, Africa, and in all countries around the world.
I’m of Chinese-Canadian descent. My parents came from China over 60 years ago. I was told that if you’re Asian, you were supposed to vote for the Liberal Party or New Democrats and to vote Conservative meant you were a traitor to your culture and race. Liberals take race or culture for granted. It has gone on for too long.
For years, I thought I was the only Asian conservative. Good news. Things are changing. More conservatives today self-identify as East Asian, South Asian, Latino, or African-American. The tide has turned and it will continue on this track.
Today, over 25% or more of African Americans are supporting Trump. Clout Research put this figure even higher at 40-45% (read WND article here). This figure could continue to grow.
The election results from election day 2018 does not reflect this change in attitude. Anything related to Trump news does not reflect the change either. This change is an undercurrent and will rise up strong in the future.
The Blexit movement (Black exit from the Democratic Party) is slowly gaining ground. More Hispanic, Blacks and Asians are moving over to support the Republican Party.
Visible minorities, women and marginal groups are increasingly getting tired of hearing that the left has the only solution.
The younger generation, namely the Millennials, are also turning toward Republicans (read L.A. Times article). They are not buying into the leftist agenda. The Millenials of today are more conservative than Baby Boomers and Generation-X were at their age. They know there is something dishonest about CNN and friends and that their reporting is biased.
Liberals and Democrats have been holding onto political power based on the visible minority vote. They have been using fear-mongering techniques to get the vote. They divide society using race, culture, ethnicity, gender, income, sexual orientation, and etc. W?hen will they stop
They try to tell us ‘what’ to think. No one can tell us how to think. They tell minorities that we are oppressed and that they are going to fight for us. They tell us that the best way to fight is for us to side with them. It’s a lie and a facade. What they want is control. They will try to own us by buying us out by handing out candy. It is about control and winning.
When I was younger, I was fed a lie all throughout my university years. Today, the liberal agenda is taught in many classes throughout the humanities and social sciences. Classrooms are a training ground for indoctrination into a liberal agenda.
When we turn against the left, they get angry. They think they own us. Why do liberals and left hate Kanye West? They thought he was one of them. They can’t control him. He’s a self-declared conservative and he is vocal about it. He’s a big Donald Trump supporter.
If there are any liberal youth and young people out there who happen to be reading this post, I implore you to honestly do what I did. Examine the party policies of each party. Honestly ask yourself how your personal views align with the policies of each political party. Some of you might be surprised at what you discover.
The day after President Trump’s inauguration, Democratic organizers changed what they planned as a victory parade into a women’s demonstration to protest against Trump in many cities across America. It was also a protest against the what they “think” are Trump’s ideology of anti-women, anti-racial inequality, anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim, anti-this, and anti-that. The anti-Trump side dumped a lot of cooked-up baloney on Trump. And what surprises me is that they were surprised he won the election. Liberals were completely mesmerized by the results because they were not listening to Trump’s real message, but only at how he communicated.
What pro-Clinton liberals and the mainstream media refuse to acknowledge and accept the reasons why Trump won the election. They are still reliving the election and are bitter against conservative populism being more popular than progressive liberalism. But we can all agree on something: that Trump got elected for reasons other than his oratory skills, which is not the finest. The hard-to-swallow truth is that Trump effectively spoke to the “silent majority” who felt their voices had not been heard, which included religious conservatives (Protestants, Catholics and evangelicals). His message resonated with many other people within this silent majority including the working class, labor unions, classic Democrats and Republicans, educated professionals. Trump’s message touched people of all stripes, even people of all color: white, black, Hispanics, Asian, (including disenchanted white supremacists which was unintentional). Simply put, Trump had the right message, not Hillary Clinton. It was a masterful work of speaking to conservative populism in America.
Hillary Clinton and Obama and the Democrats for many decades have totally ignored conservative populism and they chose to ignore them to their peril this election. Despite the dishonest media’s gang-up on Trump in order to delegitimize his presidency even before he’s still barely getting started out the gate, Trump’s message is still getting out. Good thing for Twitter. Evangelicals were happy to see invited the Revs. Franklin Graham, Paula White, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, amongst others, invited to read scripture and pray at the Inauguration. Hillary Clinton would have never given conservative evangelicals the time of day–except for scorn. Trump has made religious conservatives (who had been treated like outsiders under Obama and Clinton) feel like insiders during this election. It will continue in his nominations to key positions (incl. Mike Pence, Ben Carson, Betsy DeVos, Scott Pruitt, Elaine Chao, Rick Perry, Ken Blackwell, etc.). This is why Liberal Democrats are attacking Trump and his Administration. It is a battle over ideology and message rather than fluff. Despite what the biased media may be reporting, Trump does have a real message, and it carries deep meaning to millions of God-fearing, God-loving Americans.
Trump does not talk like an insider politician and polish orator but yet, he won. How did this happen? He speaks using simple language, not as an educated scholar with a post-graduate degree. A person without a high school degree can totally understand his message–including immigrants who cannot speak perfect English like my parents. His style resonates with regular common people and this is what made his message so effective. I dare to liken Trump to young David to defeated Goliath. Yes, the Clinton-Democratic election machine was ready for a huge defeat over Trump but yet they lost. It was a big fall and hence, they had to turn the planned victory parade into a women’s protest in Washington, DC and other cities.
Obama chooses his words carefully and includes all people and speaks like a polish orator. He tries to please everyone by including the outsiders to make them feel heard and included. This is good and admirable, and it even makes an Asian dude like me feel included. This contrasts with the hard-hitting style of Trump who is fashioned like a bulldog; he bites hard and doesn’t let go of his opponent. Like a Doberman, Trump barked at the elitists and called-out their dishonesty, and it scared them, hence the strong reaction from people, including Republican insiders. Beholden to his opponents, Trump’s simple message hit the right points in people’s hearts and made outsiders feel like they were being heard and supported. Note that these outsiders are different from Obama’s outsiders. This was a key to why Trump was so successful in winning the election. It was Trump’s message that won their support–not his oratory speaking abilities.
To President Obama’s credit, Obama has a wonderful gift of speaking, and he stands in my books as one of the best orators. He knows how to inspire and include the listeners in his speeches (even Christians to an extent), and I think this was the reason why Obama got elected back in 2008. But whether he actually united people or not is another thing. Just as President Reagan was known as “the communicator”, I would opine that Obama’s oration skills is up there along with Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan. If this election were Obama vs Trump, it would make for an very interesting battle–two effective communicators in a war of words.
We wish outgoing President Obama and his family best wishes, happiness and security. We also wish incoming President Trump and his family prosperity, peace, happiness and God’s protection in the coming term. God bless you all, and may God bless America.
During this 2016 Presidential election, Donald Trump earned a reputation as a personality who is easy to hate because of his bombastic personality and tone of voice directed at his opponents. Most would dread to be his opponent, either in politics or in the business world because he eats his opponents alive. Some call the man an “equal opportunity offender.” True, he offends both friend and foe alike, even his fellow Republicans. Most of us would never think of uttering the words he openly flung at his opponents. Given that he is an “equal opportunity offender”–whatever that means, he would offend both men and women, both gay and straight, both racial minorities and the white majority, and all members of both political parties. Would that be consistent? Yes, probably. Does it make it alright? No. I think Trump has made enemies of all people for life. But does he care? Probably not.
However, I wish to say something in defense of the man. I understand the place Donald Trump comes from. I have known and experienced the likes of his personality. The man does come across as being crass, unsophisticated, and tough; but does it mean that it disqualifies him from being an effective leader? I definitely don’t think so. I know liberal elites will have a tough time swallowing the fact about who he is, and who the majority has elected to be their political leader. Deep inside, he is a blue-collar person who wounds his opponents using words and openly insults his opponents in order to win. It comes natural to his personality but that is who he is openly and behind closed doors. What you see is what you get. That was how he got to where he is in the business world. On the sympathetic end, I’d also like to say that I think he a well-meaning person. He loves his country, his family, and will do what it takes to complete his mandate, even if it means climbing all over his political opponents.
I also think the man has the potential to be one of the most effective presidents in the history of the United States. I will say more about this in my next post. Based on his history as a hard-driving businessman, he will not be the most well-liked, but he can be a very effective leader.
Both liberals must admit that he is an effective businessman. Given his business acumen and sharp sense of intuition, he will be very effective in leading his Administration in the White House. People who work under him might not have an easy time working with him because he will be direct and demand results. I would hate to sit across him in the boardroom because he would not be an easy man to work for. However, he knows what it takes to get the job done and he will get it does because he has done it before in the business world.
No, I do not condone Trump’s insults and use of strong words during the campaign. He used his instincts to do what he needed to do to win. Hillary Clinton also ran a very dirty campaign against Trump but he survived and came out the victor. This was truly amazing and it certainly shocked the majority of liberals who wished him the worst including recent death threats made by people on the left. This man has not even been sworn into office and he is already being criticized. I would say to his detractors to stop calling him down and just let him start governing. History will tell how good of a president he will be. I say we should all give the man a chance to show what he is made of.
