When Universities Created Safe Spaces . . . They Created The Conditions To Muzzle Freedom Of Expression.
After Watching What we Have all been Able to Bear Witness to for a Generation or More, because even the Most Accomplished Perpetrators of Evil, Ignorance & Fraud Can’t Bury their Filth Forever, the Word Democracy has Become so Perverted by the People we Entrust with our Freedoms (Liberals & Conservatives) . . . that the Accepted Meaning of the Word is Anathema to How “American Democracy” used to be Perceived. Canada No Less.
From My Earliest Perception Of Socio/Political Cognition, there was Always a Niggling Thought in the Back of my Mind, Not Quite a Fear, but Nonetheless a very Bothersome Thought that was just Under the Surface, That One Day – Our Freedoms will be the Weapon in the Arsenal of Tyrants . . . Used To Take Our Freedoms Away.
That Thought Is Now A Fear . . . And That Fear Is Coming To Fruition.
I Like People Of Strong Character, who are Doers . . . Who are Not Afraid to Say What they Mean & Mean What they Say. Even if that Person is Somewhat of a Braggart & Embellisher . . . Hence I Like Donald Trump.
Donald Trump Is Not Afraid To Strike A Blow & He’s Not Afraid To Take One Either.
And Any Man Or Woman Who Has Fallen & Not Gotten-Up – Deserves To Lie Where He Or She Had Fallen.
I Met A Man The Other Day . . . From Quebec (Montreal South Shore), who Like Anne & Myself has Journeyed Across Canada to British Columbia with his RV, to Escape the Winter Snow, who Generally Spends his Winter on the West Coast of Florida, who also, like More than a Million other Canadians, Couldn’t Cross the US Border from Canada because of the China Virus.
He was Happy to Find a Fellow Easterner, Especially a Former Montrealer on the West Coast of British Columbia, because we Might be the Only Two “Quebecers” (Being A Former Quebecer) in this Park of About 150-RVS, Especially Someone Who Can Speak French.
In Our Case . . . I Speak Better French than he Speaks English, which should Have been a Bonus for me, because if things had Worked-Out Differently, it would Have given me the Opportunity to Use a Language that is too Easily Forgotten if Not Used.
During Our Meet & Greet . . . I Mentioned that it was Too Bad that our Government Wouldn’t Open the Border, Especially to RV’ers, since we Already Travel Quarantined in our “Homes On Wheels”, with No Need for the Use of Public Bathrooms, Kitchens, Dining Rooms & Most other Facilities.
His Response Was Succinct . . . As Long as that Maniac is in the White House, I Don’t Really want to Go Back to the United States.
My Response Was . . . Why Is President Trump A Maniac?
His Response Was The Usual Bromide . . . Which You’d Expect from the LEFT, that Trump is a Liar, a Cheat, a Womanizer, a Man who has Gone Bankrupt Numerous Times, who was a Russian Spy & Impeached in Congress, who is Effectively Broke, but whose Children are Making Billions of Dollars off Trump’s Presidency . . . And Trump Is Bad For Canada.
To That – My Response Was . . . I Like President Trump, and Whether you Like him or Not, President Trump is Not the President of Canada, he is the President of the United States of America, Whose First & Only Obligation is to Serve the Best Interests of the American People.
It’s Up To Our Prime Minister To Do For Canada – What President Trump Is Doing For The American People.
And for a Man who is Broke & Who has Gone Bankrupt Numerous Times, Isn’t it Strange to Perceive how Donald Trump the Businessman Employed & Paid Thousands of People throughout the United States of America & Around the World to Work for him, As His Sons & Daughter Still do?
And Before The Quebecer Could Say Another Word – I Added . . . And Isn’t it Strange how a Man Without Money could Travel in his Own Luxurious Jumbo-Jet all Over the World, when People Without Money could Barely Maintain a Car Payment?
And To Add Good Measure – I Reminded Him . . . When Justin Trudeau, Canada’s Prime Minister was the Leader of the Opposition, Trudeau Sold Himself to the Highest Bidder for him to Make Paid Appearances & Speeches.
And Even Though It Wasn’t Illegal – It Was Certainly Unethical.
And while Prime Minister Trudeau is Knee-Deep in Charitable Fraud (WE) & Graft (SNC Lavalin) for Himself & Members of his Family, Including Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars for his Mother . . . Please Explain to Me How & Why the “Broke” Man you Love to Hate so Much in the White House . . . Donates His Entire $450,000 Presidential Salary To Charity?
At the End of our Conversion, which Didn’t End in Acrimony, the Quebecer Wished me Well & Asked if we could Get Together Again in the Future, to which I Smiled & Said Certainly . . . I Lied.
I Imagine the Quebecer was a Decent Guy, who Like so Many Other “Decent” People was a Victim of his Education, Upbringing & the Media. But While the Man from Quebec was a Victim of Ignorance, which was Perhaps an Excuse . . .
. . . It Nonetheless Still Makes Me A Victim Of Him.
That’s A Major Part Of The Problem – We as a Society have Become so Dumbed-Down by all the People we Trust & Trusted to Inform & Educate us . . . That We Can’t Possibly Know What We Don’t Know. And Have to Rely Upon People Who Lie, Cheat . . . And Have Reason For All Of Us – Not To Know.
Stifling Freedom Of Information Is Akin To The Strangulation Of An Entire Nation – It Should Be A Crime.
If President Trump was to Lose this Election, it would Not be Because President Trump Didn’t Deserve to Win. It would be Because Ignorance would have Triumphed Over Knowledge, And Ignorance Will Rule The Future.
People Have Become So Void Of Critical Thinking, That The Merit Of Freedom Of Speech Has Become Unimportant.
