I am no fan of Donald Trump. I have made that more than clear. My favorite quip when accused of being some MAGA Trump fanatic is that I was actually ahead of the curve. I didn't like Trump for all those years that Democrats and Hollywood liberals loved the guy and couldn't wait to party with him and ask him for money. It didn't take him putting an 'R' in front of his name for him to become StatnHiterlTrump in my world.
Nonetheless, I admit the nation was better off going into the disaster of 2020 than it was in 2016. There came a time when I couldn't drive to the store for bread and not see a new car sticker on a vehicle. Wages went up. ISIS was no longer the new normal. Personal debt began to drop. And savings were beginning to rise.
And, to be honest, he nailed the opposition for what it is. In the great Charlottesville iconoclast protest, he said then that it has nothing to do with Robert E. Lee. It is the beginning of a Taliban style assault on our very heritage, history and heroes. It soon would be Lincoln and Washington and anyone linked to the past the Left would erase from the history books.
And so it is. NYC is pondering, beyond paying off African Americans for alone ever having had ancestors who suffered, going St. Stalin on a laundry list of statues dedicated to almost any white person from the past including, but not limited to, George Washington. Just as Trump said.
One reason I'm convinced people who otherwise couldn't abide Trump supported him, was because he stated the obvious when no other 'conservatives' would. The Left is an anti-American, anti-Western, and anti-Christian force dedicated to destroying almost everything we have taken for granted. And it does so by hook or by crook, through mendacity and lies, hypocrisy and utter corruption. Perhaps he wouldn't say it today. With Trump, you never know. But he got it right then, and every day proves Trump right in that matter if nothing else.
