A note to the critics of my recent comments on the hateful and irrational commentary the Democrats and their supporters engaged in toward President Trump. In fact, this negativity started back during the election process. Remember the Democrats labeling the supporters of Mr. Trump as “deplorables”?
Mr. Trump has also contributed to this negativity with his own brand of commentary, both in speeches and on Twitter. Basically, we have two opposing political entities behaving rhetorically like each other.
Unlike the Democrats however, Mr. Trump has gone beyond the rhetoric and has offered policies and programs he thinks will resolve many of the outstanding issues our country faces.
It is refreshing to hear the Democrats admit recently that their negativity, their lack of a plausible agenda, and an ineffective candidate inspired few to vote for them at all levels of government in the last election. With their new campaign slogan, they may be turning away from their negativity.
As for my criticism of Leonard Pitts Jr., Mr. Pitts received the Pulitzer Prize in 2004, 13 years ago. That is a long time to live off that achievement and still expect protection against criticism for engaging in hate speech when he compared President Trump to Hitler.
