This election shows us how badly the country is divided but Donald Trump did not divide it



The following is an excerpt from an article published on the Flopping Aces website on January 21st.  Read the whole thing at the link provided.

As liberals continue to mourn the loss of Hillary Clinton, it seems almost cruel to invade their various "safe spaces" for the purpose of reminding them just exactly who it was that put Donald Trump in the White House.

Yeah. Almost! Ed.

The difference between 2009 and 2017 is stark. This country is divided like it has not been in a long time. People feel free to do stupid things. People feel free to act like idiots. They feel free to destroy the property of others. They feel free to disrupt the lives of others. They’ve become a**holes. What was it about the last eight years that led to this? From Brendan O’Neil on Facebook:

“TRUMP?! HOW DID THIS HAPPEN??”
It happened because you banned super-size sodas. And smoking in parks. And offensive ideas on campus. Because you branded people who oppose gay marriage ‘homophobic’, and people unsure about immigration ‘racist’. Because you treated owning a gun and never having eaten quinoa as signifiers of fascism. Because you thought correcting people’s attitudes was more important than finding them jobs. Because you turned ‘white man’ from a description into an insult. Because you used slurs like ‘denier’ and ‘dangerous’ against anyone who doesn’t share your eco-pieties. Because you treated dissent as hate speech and criticism of Obama as extremism. Because you talked more about gender-neutral toilets than about home repossessions. Because you beatified Caitlyn Jenner. Because you policed people’s language, rubbished their parenting skills, took the piss out of their beliefs. Because you cried when someone mocked the Koran but laughed when they mocked the Bible. Because you said criticising Islam is Islamophobia. Because you kept telling people, “You can’t think that, you can’t say that, you can’t do that”. Because you turned politics from something done by and for people to something done to them, for their own good. Because you treated people like shit. And people don’t like being treated like shit. Trump happened because of you.

By the way, which democrat denounced the violence taking place in DC and around the country? No one.

Which President called for peace during the transition? I must have missed it.

This country is divided, but Donald Trump did not divide this country. He is inheriting a badly divided one- he is inheriting the obama legacy.
