“…I Love Him…And Will Vote For Him Again…” On Wednesday, November 14, 2018…I heard Alice Stewart, CNN Political Commentator…speak these words about Donald Trump on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon. First…
Let me tell you a little bit about Alice Stewart. O.k… By no means is this woman…anybody’s flunky…anybody’s dummy. NO! Alice Stewart, a Republican, was the Deputy Secretary of Public Affairs for the State for Arkansas; the National Press Secretary for Representative Michele Bachmann’s 2012 Presidential campaign; the National Press Secretary for Governor Mike Huckabee’s 2016 Presidential campaign (Donald Trump’s White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, is the daughter of Mike Huckabee); and the Communications Director for the 2016 Presidential Campaign for Senator Ted Cruz. She is also an Emmy award winning journalist. O.k… (above photo -courtesy CNN)
For me… What stood out about what Stewart said…was that SHE WILL vote for Donald Trump, again. Yes! She will vote for him again, DESPITE…all the evil Donald Trump has said & done…for all to see. O.k…
On Friday, November 16, 2018…Alice Stewart was on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon, again…and so was CNN Political Analyst & USA Today Columnist, Kirsten Powers.
Don Lemon said to Kirsten Powers: “There’s been a lot of talk about why white women support President Trump despite of or perhaps because of his policies and his tone. What’s your take on this?”
Kirsten Powers responds: “Well, I think there’s a lot of different ways that we have to look at this. I think one of the first things is that people will say that they support him for reasons other than his racist language which we don’t have time to go through, but there’s all sorts of things starting from the launch of his campaign all the way up until the latest campaign. (above photo -c0urtesy CNN)
The way he demonized …uhhh people trying to come to our country on the caravan, and they’ll say, well, I’m not racist, I just voted for him because I didn’t like Hillary Clinton. And I just want to say that that’s not — that doesn’t make you not racist. It actually makes you racist. If you support somebody who does racist things, that makes you racist. So, I just want to establish that.
As for why white women do it, I think we have to recognize that white men are doing it as well, but I think sometimes we would hope that we would get better behavior from white women because white women are themselves oppressed and that they would therefore be able to align themselves with other oppressed people.
But I think we have to remember that the white patriarchal system actually benefits white women in a lot of the ways and they’re attached to white men who are benefiting from the system that was created by them, for them, and their fathers and their husbands and their brothers are benefiting from the system and so they are also benefiting.”
Alice Stewart responded:
“I think when we are talking about the political arena, voters…women and men, identify themselves as either Republican, Democratic…Independent or whatever their political party. And, I strongly disagree with the characterization that women are oppressed and by nature of that oppression they should naturally vote for another group of people that are oppressed. I think that’s just not that’s how politics work. I think as a Republican or a Democrat or whatever your political leaning is…you should vote for people that represent those policies. I’m a Republican. I support this President. I voted for this President. I did so because of his policies. I do not agree with his tone and tenor. Don, I’ve been on your show dozens and dozens of times…discounting his behavior, his tone, his tactics…the things he says about women…his denigrating women and I don’t tolerate that. His policies are what I stand for.”
Don Lemon interjects: “But, isn’t that part of the policies. Is that not part of his policies.”
Alice Stewart responds: “No, they’re not Don. The two…they’re separate. Look, I worked really hard for a candidate that had the character…the fitting of this office. Unfortunately, he didn’t win the will of the Republican party to become the nominee. And, I supported Donald Trump’s policies over Hilary Clinton’s. And, let me just say this. Kristen is a dear friend of mine. But, I resent the fact that she says that I’m racist because Donald Trump says racist things. I support this President because of his policies. And, the things that he says that are disparaging and disgusting which I’ve said many times, those don’t represent me.”
Kirsten Powers responds: “But, Alice, you don’t have to support him. You could not vote. That’s the thing. I could say there’s a Democrat who says everything that I agree with but they say mysoginist or racist things. I would not vote for them. And, I just want to step back for a second and say… Look, we spend a lot of time talking about Republican woman. There’s a problem with White women. It doesn’t matter whether their Democrats or Republicans or nothing. There is a problem with racism.
Everybody…every White person benefits from an inherently racist system that is structurally racist. So, we’re all part of the problem so I’m not trying to point my finger at you or at another person. But, I think we have to recognize that there is institutional racism in this country and by saying that I’m going to support somebody who you just said…says racist things and does racist things…is a problem.”
So, Alice Stewart acknowledges that Donald Trump says racist things. She acknowledges that he says disparaging and disgusting things. So…
Let’s just reflect…only for a moment…on who is Donald Trump…
Good…Evil…Somewhere in Between???
I don’t even get into debates with people anymore about whether Trump…IS…OR…IS NOT…EVIL. God cannot lie & I was shown, by God, a long time ago…that Donald Trump is an evil ass somebody. Through & through. And…
Jesus says to us… “16 You will know them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles? 17 In the same way, every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus you will know them by their fruits.” (Matthew 7:17-20)
Donald Trump’s actions…have shown me clearly that he is a bad tree with the following characteristics: Narcissistic…Selfish…Greedy…Arrogant…Racist…Elitist…Sexist…Hate-filled…Envious…Divisive… A Liar
In other words…UNGODLY!!! Donald Trump is purely “flesh” driven. Not an iota of that being is, “spiritually” driven. Meaning??? Meaning… Donald Trump acts nothing like Jesus. Trump is completely the OPPOSITE of God.
God says to us… “16 Live by the Spirit, I say, and do not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For what the flesh desires is opposed to the Spirit, and what the Spirit desires is opposed to the flesh; for these are opposed to each other, to prevent you from doing what you want. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not subject to the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are obvious: fornication, impurity, licentiousness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, anger, quarrels, dissensions, factions, 21 envy,[e]drunkenness, carousing, and things like these. I am warning you, as I warned you before: those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” (Galatians 5:16-21)
Even though Alice Stewart acknowledges that Trump says racist, disparaging and disgusting things, the fact that he says these things and does evil things…isn’t enough to STOP her from supporting him. Alice Stewart justifies her support for Trump under the guise of… “Oh, I don’t support his racist, disparaging, disgusting talk. I just support his policies that I agree with.”
Well…GOT DAMN! You can’t have it both ways! You cannot straddle the fence!
If you CHOOSE to support Donald Trump…you get the WHOLE package. Meaning??? Meaning… When you CHOOSE to support Donald Trump…you are supporting and upholding ALL of who Donald Trump is. Why???
Because you NOW KNOW who he is. You KNOW what he is about. He has clearly shown his hand.
Donald Trump is…a RACIST. Donald Trump is…a SEXIST. Donald Trump is…a PATHOLOGICAL LIAR. Donald Trump is…GREEDY. Donald Trump…DOESN’T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT THE SUFFERING OF OTHERS. Donald Trump is…SELFISH. Donald Trump is…a CON ARTIST. Donald Trump…LOVES CHAOS & CONFUSION. Donald Trump is…DIVISIVE. Donald Trump is…HITLERESQUE.
Donald Trump is…UNGODLY.
When you support Donald Trump being in power…you ARE supporting all the decisions he is allowed to make under that umbrella of power. So, you tell me… What type of decisions do you anticipate a RACIST…a SEXIST…a PATHOLOGICAL LIAR…a GREEDY man…a SELFISH man…a CON ARTIST…a DIVISIVE man…a HITLERESQUE man…an UNGODLY man…making??? I’ll tell you…
He will make decisions that are consistent with his character. Most, will cause UNGODLY outcomes for the multitude. His decisions will do more harm than good. And, any thread of good that may happen to come out of any of those decisions…will be purely incidental.
Donald Trump…is an evil man…who works to support the Devil. And, the Devil is all about DESTROYING any goodness of God. So, Donald Trump, consistent with his devilish heart…WILL work to…DESTROY! DESTROY! DESTROY!
As Jesus says… As I told you above… You CANNOT get GOOD…from a BAD GOT DAMN TREE!!!
So, when you support Donald Trump…as Alice Stewart does…you are supporting a BAD TREE…who will produce BAD THINGS.
You cannot carve out a piece or aspect of Donald Trump…that you find acceptable…and throw away the aspects of him…that you find not to be palatable. You are complicit in upholding Trump’s bad acts…as well as what you see as the good acts. So, you are also responsible for any outcomes that result from any of Trump’s actions…that he engages in with racist motives…selfish motives…sexist motives…divisive motives, hate-filled motives, etc…
So, when Donald Trump cages up Hispanic children because of their brown skin…Trump supporters evidence to the world that they are o.k. with his racist actions…because THEY STILL support him…even after he does such a thing. When Donald Trump calls White racists who shout… “Jews will not replace us”…good people…Trump supporters evidence to the world they are o.k. with his racist actions…because THEY STILL support him…even after he does such a thing. O.k…
The bottom line is this…
If you ARE NOT a racist…you do not support a person who is a racist. It’s just like the White folk who supported Eugene “Bull” Conner (Birmingham, Alabama, Public Safety Commissioner) even after they saw him sic dogs on and use water hoses on Black folk…who were peacefully marching for equal treatment…during the 60’s. They supported Bull Conner because their hearts were filled with the same racist notions as Bull Conner.
Trump’s supporters…support Trump at this present time…because their hearts hold many of the same racist, sexist, elitist & devilish notions that his does. Most of these supporters don’t want others to notice…acknowledge…& call them out for their own hate-filled hearts. You see how Alice Stewart responded to Kirsten Powers…when Kirsten told her she was “racist.” Remember, Stewart said… “But, I resent the fact that she says that I’m racist because Donald Trump says racist things.”
I respond to Stewart… “You can save your sorry ass indignation for those who don’t know truth. For those who can’t see through what type of person you really are. Your hood has been pulled back…& your true face is seen. It’s people like you…who stand by & watch devils like Trump…lead lambs to the slaughter…all the while trying to keep the blood of innocents…from dripping on your hands. Well…guess what??? It’s too got damn late. Your hands are bloody…too. You are just as responsible as Trump…for the dirt that he does…because you uphold him…you support him…DESPITE…knowing that his RUTHLESS heart is INCLINED to engage in such despicable…hate-filled actions.”
Guess what else???
God says…those who do evil…as Donald Trump does…hate God…and will not come to Him. Not, my words, but those of Jesus.
Jesus, puts it like this…
17 “Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. 18 Those who believe in him are not condemned; but those who do not believe are condemned already, because they have not believed in the name of the only Son of God. 19 And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. 20 For all who do evil hate the light and do not come to the light, so that their deeds may not be exposed. 21 But those who do what is true come to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that their deeds have been done in God.” (John 3: 17-21)
So, if you only have the choice of either serving God or the Devil…& those who do evil…will not come to God, then, WHO are they serving??? The DEVIL! The one & only.
How does God see the person who upholds & supports Donald Trump…who hates God???He sees those people as evil…also. God sees them as evil because…they are upholding and supporting someone who does evil.
Remember, He did not give those Angels, who followed the Devil…any slack. He is sending them to Hell…just like He’s sending the Devil to Hell.
And it makes no difference that we are talking about humans…following a human devil. HELL NO! Donald Trump will lead them right into Hell…if they don’t wake up.
It was those Germans, who supported Adolf Hitler…which allowed that devil to get power & stay in power. Now… Do you think that God gives any slack to the millions in Germany who supported & backed Adolf Hitler’s evil ass??? How could He??? He is God & He changes not. He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
Those who supported Hitler, by choice, will suffer the same fate as Hitler…in the eyes of God. They were complicit in Hitler’s evil doings. They upheld Hitler…to the detriment & death of millions. And, that shit will not go unpunished.
Gods is telling those who support Donald Trump…the following:
“14 Do not enter the path of the wicked,
and do not walk in the way of evildoers.
15 Avoid it; do not go on it;
turn away from it and pass on.
16 For they cannot sleep unless they have done wrong;
they are robbed of sleep unless they have made someone stumble.
17 For they eat the bread of wickedness
and drink the wine of violence.
18 But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn,
which shines brighter and brighter until full day.
19 The way of the wicked is like deep darkness;
they do not know what they stumble over.
20 My child, be attentive to my words;
incline your ear to my sayings.
21 Do not let them escape from your sight;
keep them within your heart.
22 For they are life to those who find them,
and healing to all their flesh.
23 Keep your heart with all vigilance,
for from it flow the springs of life.
24 Put away from you crooked speech,
and put devious talk far from you.
25 Let your eyes look directly forward,
and your gaze be straight before you.
26 Keep straight the path of your feet,
and all your ways will be sure.
27 Do not swerve to the right or to the left;
turn your foot away from evil.” (Proverbs 4:14-27)
So, to all who have joyously jumped on the Trump train…& have settled in…comfortably, I ask you this… Are you willing to “ride or die”…the Trump train…straight through the gates of Hell??? Because from where I’m sitting…that’s exactly where your evil…enabling ass…is going to end up…too.
Just a thought… Just a thought…
