President Trump would have made a lot more headway last weekend if he hadn’t said “there are good people on both sides” last weekend, though nothing would have ever been good enough for the Left and MSM. No, Mr. President. No there is not. In fact, I would go so far as to say there are NO good people on either side. They’re all idiots.
Sure, you could argue that SOME might have been there just to protest the white supremacists, but what good would it do? Taking an angry group of malcontents down to confront another group of angry malcontents is never a recipie for anything but disaster. Being there was an act of stupidity. From here on out I’ll have no sympathy for anyone who gets hurt or killed at these things. Doesn’t mean I think they deserve it, just that it was easily foreseeable and they chose not to avoid it.
What good does protesting do anyway? Does it ever change minds anymore? It was effective in the ’60s, but the fact is, most of just sit back and laugh. Women’s March? Nothing but vile hilarity at the idea these people wanted to be taken seriously. Wearing costumes and hats will do nothing but garner ridicule from intelligent people.
The multitude of Antifa protests? Just children creating mayhem, hiding their faces so their upper-middle class or rich parents won’t see them and cut them off. Notice they never pull this crap somewhere like Texas? Because they know the ordinary citizens wouldn’t tolerate it, even if the liberal mayors of the major cities did.
The white supremacists? I know the radical left would love you to believe there are more of them than there are, but they are a tiny microcosm of the white population. Far smaller than say, the Islamic “extremists” that plague the Muslim culture, yet never fail to gain excuses from the radical left. Most of us have moved on from that way of thinking 30 years ago. It’s being drummed up for people to create chaos. It has been for years.
Black Lives Matter? Same. Sure, there are good folks in there, but when you associate with the likes of DRay etc, you lose credibility. They’re using you for their own purposes. Again, most of us no matter what our politics see you as a human being, not a black or white or anything else human being.
All of you, your protests don’t mean anything to any of us. We’re just trying to go to work, pay our bills, raise our families, and if you’re divorced and single like me, occasionally attempt to fine a decent woman. Pro tip ladies: guys like me, stable, with a good career and caring, aren’t interested in your radical views to change the country we love. If you’re protesting because you don’t like men, maybe they aren’t the problem, maybe YOU are.
So here’s my suggestion protesters: Find Jesus. Get a hobby. Get a job. Join a book club. Start building models. Take a chill pill prescribed by your physician, or shoot, smoke some weed. Chill. Out. Find some meaning in your lives other than being offended in perpetuity.
I think if you gained some perspective, you’d realize that, unless it’s the government encroaching on your business or freedoms, or taxing you into submission, you really don’t have anything to complain about. Most of the things you complain about that CAN be solved would be BETTER solved by you going out and working on them, not throwing a public hissy fit. For example, instead of protesting poverty why not volunteer for Habitat for Humanity or something? DO something. Don’t just whine about it.
As for protesting things like statues? Personally, I don’t care. But if walking by some metal or stone offends you, seriously, re-evaluate your life. You’re clearly not bothering with anything of value. Go do something of VALUE. At the moment you’re just useful idiots anyway.
Now that I’ve spoken to the 95%, I say to the 5% who actually understand the ins and outs of these protests: You’re cowards. You can’t get Socialism in this country at the ballot box so you want to take it by force. You keep stirring up anarchy for your nefarious purposes, and you’re going to lose. I’ve written previously as to why you’d fail here where you’ve succeeded elsewhere: the 2nd Amendment. You know that, which is why you’ve tried so hard for so many years to take it, but you’ve now realized we’re not giving it up without a LITERAL fight, and so you go ahead with your anarchy anyway. That’s not going to go as well for you as you think.
People have every right to peacefully assemble, but I have every right to make fun of you for it. We all do. And we will. The more you go protest when it’s over idiotic imagined slights, or for things you could be fixing yourself, the less interested we’ll be in your particular cause. All of you, stop being idiots.
