Trump followers demand own truth
It has been my contention in expressing my opinions that as a society, we must uphold the standards of right and wrong. If we lose track of this obligation to exonerate the innocent and punish the guilty, then it is not the evil doers who have lost their moral compass, but society itself.
Take in case the recent impeachment of Donald Trump where the U.S. Office of Government Accountability announced Trump indeed broke the law by withholding congressionally approved aid to Ukraine. The Republicans who like to present themselves as the party of “law and order” decided Trump has been proven guilty but they didn’t care and gave him a get out of jail pass. Yes, evil is in the hearts of those that don’t care.
There was more guilt and law-breaking in that case than there ever was in men and women seeking asylum at the southern border and having to endure the Trump administration’s widely condemned policy of “zero tolerance” that had their children ripped away from them and put in cages.
How ironic that Trump followers want the truth, but only as they see it. Can America still be a great country when people’s minds are being manipulated by Trump’s fancy lies and the Republican’s failure to do what is just?
