Make America White again is a liberal lie

I've gotten tired of a post I've seen several times now.  Now, bear in mind, I don't like President-Elect Trump.  I didn't vote for him.  And, this is pure, fabricated horse crap.  The post is Day 1 in Trump's America, and it features an obvious hoax as its big, shocking picture.

That certainly is shocking.  Even more shocking is that anybody believes it was done by Trump supporters.  That slogan actually comes from a much earlier fabrication which Snopes (which leans politically left) has already exposed:  Fake America Great Again

Liberals have been using this slogan to say all Trump supporters are horrible, white males, like this Muslim immigrant woman.

The really important part is that this slogan originated with the left, who have then propagated it.  And suddenly, shockingly, it has appeared on a college campus on a night when anti-Trump protesters were out in force and behaving badly.

Liberals, who have preached tolerance and love for so long couldn't possibly have written such a thing, could they?

Woops.  Guess they could.  Would sweet, innocent-looking Laci have written such a thing?  Yep, I confirmed it in her twitter feed.  As of today, she hasn't bothered to take it down even though she's rapidly becoming poster child for the intolerant, hypocritical left.

There are countries where only one party is allowed to win. China and Iran are examples. Only one ideology is permitted there. In a republic, or representative democracy if you prefer, we accept the outcome of elections even if we don't like them. Otherwise, we're saying it's okay to take freedom away from half of our fellow Americans. Complaining is fine. I do that, too. Protesting the outcome of a free and fair election, property destruction and divisive hoaxes aren't.  If you have to fabricate your evidence, your movement isn't worth the participation trophies it's built on.

As President Obama so clearly put it, "You don't like a particular policy or a particular president? Then argue for your position. Go out there and win an election. Push to change it. But don't break it. Don't break what our predecessors spent over two centuries building. That's not being faithful to what this country's about."

The kicker is that it's not even that bad.  The media has demonized Trump, but among the reasons I didn't want him to be the Republican nominee are the ones explained on the same site that posted the hoax picture.  Skip the "I told you so" portion:

While you weren’t paying attention, Trump is actually a former Democrat. If you study his actual values he has far more in common with traditional moderate or liberal values than he does a traditional conservative. In fact, Trump may even be more liberal than Hillary Clinton on several issues.

The media prevented any kind of discussion on values, and instead focused on rhetoric and propaganda. So most Americans who immediately defaulted to what the media and Clinton campaign told them never took the time to actually get to know Donald Trump. They just watched the jokes on SNL, and corporate media blindly without considering other sources. While I’m still unsure about Trump myself, we at least know politically he’s actually a New York Democrat in Republican clothing (this is why the Republican establishment rejected him).

Seriously, liberals.  The man is one of you.  Go home.  Realize that the other half of America felt the same as you do now when Obama won.  You can't win every election, but if you ask nicely I'm sure someone will give you a trophy for trying really hard.
