Some Trump Supporters Now Acting As Nutty as Trump- and Conservative- Haters (After four years of Liberals & Democrats Rioting, or Defending Rioting)
January 6, 2021: After having watched Republican Trump haters, leftists, and Democrats act like violent, unhinged lunatics ever since Trump took office, I don’t want to see any Trump haters, Democrats, and Leftists pointing to today’s nutty actions by Trump supporters to act morally superior: because they are not morally superior. Nobody, no group, comes out looking good at this point.
I have never been a liberal or a Democrat, and will never be a liberal or a Dem. I left the Republican Party a year or two before Trump ever even threw his hat into the GOP’s ring.
I remain conservative, but am currently a bit more moderate than I was a few years ago.
I’ve never been particularly for or against Trump.
I have been baffled by unrelenting hatred of the man by the left and by the “Never Trump” right – but I am also baffled by the extreme devotion to Trump as demonstrated today: apparently, some Trump supporters have (Link): started rioting during the electoral vote count (including video clips of Trump supporters sparring with police).
I do understand why some might find Trump appealing, in that he seems to listen to everyday people, and everyday people feel as though they and their needs have been ignored by both the establishment Republicans and establishment Democrats.
That much I fathom – but some of the MAGA (“Make America Great Again,” aka Trump supporters) crowd fighting with DC police today and apparently trying to storm the capitol building is inexcusable.
