I get asked from time to time why I spend so much time “hating on Trump” and not more time on taking on socialism. This question usually comes from poorly educated Trump supporters who actually believe that this idiotic question is some kind of “gotcha question“. They’re wrong.
Unfortunately for delusional Trump supporters, hypocrisy is still bad. Trump supporters forget that the Bible commands us not to deal with a splinter in someone else’s eye when we haven’t dealt with the plank in our eye (Matthew 7:3), and Trump is an entire lumber yard.
How could I say to a socialist that it’s wrong for them to advocate for the government to interfere in markets, when Trump’s entire platform is literally using state power to interfere in markets? How is it that Trump supporters don’t see the hypocrisy in their own stupid arguments?
It’s obvious, and since Trump supporters dislike political correctness, let’s I’m just going to say it. It’s not that they don’t care. It’s that they’re stupid. They can’t see their own hypocrisy, because self reflection requires significant emotional and intellectual brain power that they simply lack.
It’s no accident that Trump’s strongest supporters are rural, working class, white, aging, and, above all, uneducated. It’s the reason that these same people who complained about ObamaCare’s unconstitutionality now support an equally unconstitutional “TrumpCare” program to replace it.
It’s why they have no problem supporting tariffs and pointless trade wars that demonstrate Donald Trump’s laughable understanding of economics, and anything more complicated than “China bad. America good.” just confuses (and angers) them. Simply put, stupid is as stupid does.
Their conspicuous and demonstrable stupidity does not free me from my obligation to stand for the truth. While their are stupid people on the right (“my side”) advocating for stupid and evil policy, I have a duty to challenge those stupid and evil policies, above and beyond fighting socialism.
People who think inflicting life long emotional trauma on children just because they were born on the wrong side of an imaginary line are not my allies. People who believe that banning people from their own country because they have a different religion are not on “my side“.
And while these kinds of people have political power in the United States, you can be damned certain I’m going to fight them.
