– Or is it the Republicans they truly hate?

To use this segment in a Radio broadcast or Podcast, send TIM a request.

This is part of an on-going series I have been writing regarding how Democrats think and the tactics they are using going into the 2018 midterm elections.

True, the November elections primarily address Congressional races, but the Democrats have put President Trump in their cross-hairs as the focal point for the election. Basically, they want to use election day as a referendum of his policies and decisions. If the Democrats regain control of either chamber of Congress, they believe they will have a chance in the 2020 presidential election.

Their approach is simple but inflammatory, linking all GOP congressmen to the president thereby implying the candidate is evil simply because he/she happens to be in the president’s party. This tactic has caused some Republicans to campaign in fear, believing their association with the president is a liability. Instead, they should portray it as an asset and stand behind the president, particularly in terms of the country’s expanding economy.

Not surprising, the Democrats portray the president as an evil, insensitive ogre, which explains why they claim he is a racist, even though there is no evidence to show he is. It is simply politics at its most distasteful. For example, just a few years ago, Rev. Jesse Jackson applauded Trump’s business programs for making life better for the black community. He also thanked Mr. Trump for meeting with him when Jackson ran for president years ago. Today, Rev. Jackson regularly blasts the president accusing him of being a racist.

Today, the Democrats malign the president every chance they get, even going so far as to suggest his impeachment. This adversarial relationship began from the outset of his presidency. It wasn’t so much about Mr. Trump winning the election as it was to their shock and disbelief their candidate lost. By doing so, the “resistance” movement was born to try and thwart every action by the president, be it in Congress or on the streets.

Do the Democrat elders truly hate President Trump, the person? Aside from losing to him in 2016, the answer is No. To prove it, let’s suppose for a moment the president changed his persona to satisfy the Left; that he stopped Tweeting, acted more “presidential,” befriended the press, and began to adopt some of the positions of the Democrats. Even if he did all this, thereby blending into the Washington establishment, the Democrats would still be calling for his head. The point is, they hate the president, not because of who he is, but the party he belongs to. If any of the other 16 Republicans had won the nomination and election, his or her head would be on the chopping block. The biggest difference between President Trump and the other Republican candidates though is the president is willing to fight back, which irks the Democrats and media.

I find it rather amusing when the Democrats lament, “Why can’t he be more like Bush?” (meaning more presidential). This is laughable as the Left maligned President Bush as an idiot, and too incompetent to perform his job. So much so, you may recall Mr. Bush went into seclusion throughout the years of the Obama Administration.

Also consider how much Vice President Mike Pence is portrayed as evil and incompetent by the Democrats and the media, just because he was the running mate of the president. It is simple “guilt by association.” He has been ridiculed for his faith and the fact he has been loyal to President Trump. Members of the Trump family are also portrayed as ogres by the Left.

No, the Democrats do not truly hate President Trump. They may be green with envy for the successes he has had, but deep down they do not hate him personally; it’s all an act. The reality is they hate all Republicans and consider them a threat to their socialist agenda.

As I’ve maintained all along, the Democrats are desperate and will go to any length to win in November, regardless if it is legal or not. As long as the Republicans keep improving the economy and security, they will likely win in the Fall. My only concern for the hatred spawned by party elders is that their followers take it seriously and pose a dangerous threat to all Republicans, not just the president.

Just remember, using hate as a political weapon is what carried Adolph Hitler and the Nazis to power, as well as Benito Mussolini and the Italian Fascists, and hopefully we will all remember what happened after that.

Keep the Faith!

    “I suspect MOST democrats (and independents) disrespect Trump, think that he’s rude, crude, and amoral, but recognize that he’s the president and they just have to tolerate it. And I suspect that there are a number that truly hate him and others out there who would prefer to have just about anyone else in the office but him – much like the conservatives did with Obama. Now, to be fair, I don’t think I saw the conservative side being quite so vulgar and crude when referring to Obama during his tenure as the liberals have been talking about Trump. I know they kept harping on issues that really had little to do with governing and more to do with PERSONAL matters. Whether I like him or not is immaterial, it’s simply not in the interests of the United States to be disrespectful of the President.

    Now, here’s the problem: I’m seeing a lot of ads here in Colorado, and I live in a bastion of liberalism (Boulder – better known as the “People’s Republic of Boulder” – although that technically refers to the city of Boulder, and I live in the unincorporated county – but the attitudes bleed over into the county a bit). These ads are mostly democrats (there are a few republican ads, but hardly any of the ads will tell you without doubt which party the person belongs to. If you’re diligent, you can dig around and find something that will tell you. But, more importantly when I hear ANY candidate saying that their “program” if elected is to “stop Trump” – that’s when I know that (a) they are democrats, and (b) I’m not ever going to vote for them because if all they have as a platform is to “stop Trump” then that simply means they aren’t running for office to SERVE the PEOPLE. There are so many things that need to be addressed, and neither side has figured a way to politely disagree with the other – they have to resort to vulgarities, hateful descriptors, and absolutely incorrect words to describe a person’s philosophies. But, to focus your entire political platform on “stopping Trump” says you don’t have any concrete or viable plans or proposals for consideration.

    It’s sad that it’s come to this, but it comes from both sides believing that the “all or nothing” approach is the only way to truly run an effective government, and neither side has the total answer. They haven’t realized that they need to cooperate to make things better all around. If it was me, I would forbid ANY advertisement that indicates which party a person belongs to – they should have to SAY CLEARLY what they propose to do in office, and then the people would vote according to the platform, not the party. But, the parties will never buy into that idea, because it takes their “identity” away.”

    “Tim- Good article. The Dems go especially nuts when a Republican president is effective. I remember how much they demonized Reagan (and even his wife). I’ve always thought that Trump enrages them even more because he fights back, unlike Bush, who would not stick up for himself (or for the people who voted for him).”

    You mentioned Hitler’s use of hate. Most socialist leaders operate this way — Certainly Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, Stalin, Castro, and many many others. It seems the Democrat party is simply becoming a socialist party

    “The Dems truly hate Trump – the more he accomplishes the more they hate him – my sister is one of them.”
