2016 and 2017 has been an “Awakening” year in so many ways. I’ve went from anger to sadness to laughter when it comes to politics and Christianity. It has made me drop people I have known for years because I guess I guess I never knew them…funny how life works that way. You never stop learning new things about yourself and the people around you rather online or offline.
Let’s call a “Spade a Spade”
Mika Brzezinski on Morning Joe went on a long but truthful rant about the issue of sexual harassment and how former politics should own up to their past issues before going after current politics in regards to this matter.
From Anita Hill to Monica Lewinski to Paula Jones to Jennifer Flowers to countless of other women who were persecuted by local and national media, people not in the media…some of the women we may not have cared for but in the end they were taken advantage of by men of power and let’s be honest most of the time the women were blamed more than the men who commited the act. I can remember watching Phil Donahue interviewing then President candidate Bill Clinton about Paula Jones and the boos Mr. Donhue received when he asked question after question about his affairs. I will admit I got a little peeved at Phil with the questions and looking back I was wrong because Clinton was wrong.
Fast forward to today. We can condemn Trump (man I hate saying or typing this person’s name but I have to in regards to this piece) Weinstein, Cosby, (C.K.) Lewis, R. Kelly, and the names that are being named daily but let’s be honest if we this behavior would have been addressed 20 years ago maybe we wouldn’t have this fool in the White House now.
I can now watch the politican shows and not become angry because to be truthful this was a long time coming. Republicans can’t be surprised with Trump in office because close to eight years he has been spreading racism and the Republicans rode on his coat tails in regards his degrading and belittling of former President Obama. Besides Senator John McCain what other sitting Republican rebuke Trump lies? This monster was allowed to roam loose with not one GOP member going on Meet the Press or Face the Nation or any other politcal news show and condemn this fool actions and words and now they’re are ashamed of him. No White evangelical pastor or speaker spoke up against Trump and are now silent in regards to Roy Moore. I don’t hear James Dobson or Ralph Reed speaking against Moore.
That’s funny…and pathetic.
My party, Democrats are appauled of Trump and Moore behavior but years early did not condemn former President Clinton and his behavior toward women when he was in the White House. I know people will say this is “Apples and Oranges” but in the end wrong is wrong. There’s no way this “Man/Baby” should be the Commander in Chief at this time and no way a pedophile should be allowed to sent to Congress but here we are with filling our news story and people are so “shocked” and “disgusted”…why? And what’s the big fuss that Steve Bannon is now a “Mover and Shaker” in politics.
All of these events were 30 years in the making. Karma I don’t believe in…Sowing and Reaping I believe in because when you plant one apple seed the tree doesn’t produce ONE apple…it produces multiple apples. The same when you plant evil or allow certain behaviors to go on and on. The harvest it produces will be multitudes of heartache, despair, and grief for years to come. America ignored the crack epidemic because they felt it was an “Urban” problem and now Opiods has hit the “Heartland” like a ton of bricks. When are people going to realize, in the end we’re all on this same ship…Earth.
Oh well, get ready America, it’s about to become ‘Hella’ worse.
