Call Me Irresponsible…

8 Feb

Or you can call me a liberal or you can call me Democrat or you can call me disagreeable or you can call me opinionated or you can call me independent…but you doesn’t hasta call me a traitor!

When asking what it was like to give the State of the union address and having one side of the Congressional aisle not applaud him, President Trump said that the Democrats were, “like death. Un-American. Somebody said treasonous,” he continued. “Can we call that treason? Why not?” he asked the crowd.

And of course the crowd (of Republicans) went wild! What’s the matter with our President and his minions? Wasn’t just calling us all sons of bitches good enough for them? So what?…they had to get personal?

Really? If I don’t agree with the President of the United States and don’t applaud his every word and I am an American citizen then I must be a traitor? Un-American? Really? If I’m not a registered Republican in a two party system then I am being treasonous? Synonymous with being a conspirator, spy, traitor, turncoat, rebel, Judas, Benedict Arnold? Really?

What happened to the America that once was the home of the free and the land of the brave? You remember that America don’t you? The one we used to sing about? Where we were free to believe what we believe and brave enough to stand up for our beliefs?

You remember that country don’t you? The Country where Republicans, like those pictured above, once were allowed to sit on their hands for 8 years when our last POTUS gave his 8 State of the Union Addresses from 2009 to 2016?

Not only didn’t they ever applaud their President but sometimes they shouted from the gallery “liar!” And even had their speaker publicly declare that they would never, ever, ever even work with him. (And they didn’t… for 8 years!) They said that our President wasn’t even an American and pretended that they were searching for his birth records (not) and even declared that they were uncovering evidence that he was here to destroy our country (weren’t, didn’t) and yet… they weren’t being treasonous then…were they?

So how about we just call our President and his Republican sycophants… hypocrites or charlatans or phonies or fakers or frauds or dissemblers or two faced con artists…but we doesn’t hasta call them traitors… now do we?
