Double standards, Ignorance and Racism: On full display in post U.S. Presidential Election

Updated on April 7, 2017

I took an interest in Politics at a young age. The Goldwater-Johnson race fascinated me and I've been paying attention ever since.

I've mentioned it multiple times...

I was an active member of the Tea Party.

I've explained multiple times, the reasons why!

I've defended those reasons and I've corrected falsehoods multiple times!

Whether I ever got through to the naysayers....I cannot say!

Let us go back in time....

My initial introduction to the Barack Obama Presidency was a Pledge which read:

Sign this to Serve Barack Obama.

(How do you interpret those words?)

I interpreted them this way:

I wasn't to question The Pledge, I was to sign The Pledge, without question.

I questioned the Pledge and sent back a response which read, "I do not Serve man, I Serve God". "The President of the United States, (whomever he or she may be) is in place to Serve us, the American People. The Government is in place to Serve us, the American People. It is not the other way around"

As a result, of rejecting The Pledge and submitting my response as to the reasons why I rejected it, (to be crystal clear here, I did not reject the man as my President, I rejected the Pledge) I was labeled racist, a meanie, unAmerican and so on and as a result...a slew of people, rejected me!

I know who I am, I know what I believe in.

There is no gray area.

There is no waking up one day believing one thing, waking up the next, believing another.

I am not one person with one group and another person with another group.

I am who I am.

I will not follow you if I believe you are headed the wrong way, but I will point it out to you.

It is a shame that a group of people turned their backs on me, due to ignorance and a lack of understanding of the U.S. Constitution and how things are designed to work in America.

It is a shame that they do not understand that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights were written to Protect them and All of the People, including me!

It is a shame that somewhere along the way, they were taught (?) that they are to Serve the man or the woman currently holding the Title, President of the United States.

While I was receiving and rejecting Pledge Forms, Hollywood celebrities were starring in television commercials, hands over hearts, Pledging to Serve and be Servants to... Barack Obama!

Fa Fa Fast Forward to Today...

Apparently, these groups of rejecters and celebrities were taught (?) that they are to Serve and be Servants to... the man or the woman holding the Title President (or President-Elect) of the United States, but only when.....those men or women are Democrats!

If it is a Republican or a Conservative President, (or President-Elect) then forget Respect for the Office. Forget Honoring the Election results. Forget about Peace and Harmony and I love you, and you love me... and blah, blah, blah and so on.

Most importantly, forget about all that Serving and Pledge crap, that only applied to the last President...the Democrat...the first black President of the United States!

While we are 'Forgetting' and for Harmony's sake...let's ignore all the interviews and all of the testimony of Tea Party members, (fellow citizens fighting for you) targeted and accused of bogus things at rallies, targeted and accused by the IRS, tied up in red tape, because they dared to speak out against an overreaching, out of control government that forgot their place.

While we are busy ignoring, let us also make sure that it is Recorded and entered into the Archives that The Tea Party was nothing more than a misguided group of troublemakers....yes it is true that the Tea Party was targeted by the IRS and yes it did come out that they were infiltrated by ugly people with ugly signs with truly ugly intentions and yes it turned out they were simply attempting to stand up for the People, but let's not include any of that into the Archives...let us instead go with the headlines of that time, under the direction of {you got it} the overreaching, out of control government that forgot their place.

Fa Fa Fast Forward again...

Hollywood celebrities starring in television commercials, accusing President-Elect Donald Trump of every awful thing under the sun.

Their hands are no longer over their hearts, now they are busy giving the middle finger to America, to President-Elect Trump and to all that supported him and/or voted for him (you just don't see that part)

No proof, no evidence and a swearing in has yet to occur, but there they are, on the television...Again.

Trump has not yet had an opportunity to prove himself or to show us the type of President he will be, but there they are...Again.

Different day, different view, different Prez, different attitude...a slew of celebrities, attempting to cause a reaction...Again!

Today, in my News Feed...a video of a white, [special needs] young man held captive, humiliated and abused by four black teenagers, all while they yell every awful thing under the sun, (truly deplorable) all while condemning Donald Trump and all white people.

It is beyond sad and beyond disgusting.

All of the ugliness which these kids have been feasting upon, for possibly all of their entire short festering, on display for all the world to see.

This is where we are?

I guess it is more Acceptable and easier to live with, made up fake News which points fingers at and then accuses and then destroys the good name of a particular Group of People, than it is to Accept the Evident, on full display, right in our faces, in our News Feed today.....Reality!

      Apparently the Secret Service thought so too.

      Just read in my News Feed, "the Secret Service is well aware of the comment, but the U.S Attorney's office will decide if there will be an Investigation."

      To quote a much less provocative Character...Scooby Doo..."Ruh Roh"

      Sure sounded like a threat to me.

      ROFL "left the peroxide on her head too long-too often. It's affected her brain.' hmm, I wonder if that's the same explanation for all ditsy blondes? (I didn't say all blondes were ditsy so blondes, don't go "Leslie" on me).

      Anyone having trouble losing weight? You're not alone, check out my status post on the feed.

      LOL, ab......The "Material Girl" has obviously left the peroxide on her head too long-too often. It's affected her brain. She has proven to me once and for all that celebrities TRULY do believe they may say & do anything at any time, anywhere because they're untouchables. The girl stood on a stage w/ microphone, ranting, screaming profanities & confessing she wants to "blow up the White House." LOL...Way to go Madonna, you DITZ! I hope she doesn't mind being tailed by the CIA for the next few years! HA! Since it is Madonna after all, she'll just take each of them to bed. Problem solved.

      Whoa...Meryl was a pussycat compared to some of the vile being spewed yesterday during the Women's March/anti-President Trump demonstrations, etc., by Madonna, Ashley Judd and others.

      You all do not speak for me or for most of the women that I know.

      If I ever held an ounce of Respect for any of you, that is no longer the case!

      Oh Meryl Streep, really? You're a great Actor, I've enjoyed you in many great movies! Can you and Hollywood stop trying to analyze and fix all of us out here in the 'Real World' and just stick with Acting, please.

      Thank you!
