The Hypocrisy of Our Nation

I saw this on Facebook last night, and I had to share. Unfortunately, I do not know the original author so I cannot give credit. Yet, it was so powerful and truthful that it had to go beyond my Facebook Page. I hope that you will share this message as well. If I find the author, I will be sure to come back and update this post. 

Let’s talk about hypocrisy. 

If you voted for Trump because of Hillary’s email “problem” but are not upset that the Trump administration is using a private email server and unsecured phones, you are a hypocrite. 

If you believe Jesus was a persecuted refugee fleeing Herod, but support the ban on Syrian refugees, you are a hypocrite. 

If you believe life begins at conception, but support defunding the countries number one source of prenatal care, planned parenthood, you are a hypocrite. 

If you believe the mainstream media lies but believe Trump when he spouts verifiable lies, you are a hypocrite. 

If you dismiss the AP, Reuters or NPR as biased media but accept everything Fox news says, you are a hypocrite. 

If you think all life is sacred, but do not support reasonable gun control, you are a hypocrite. 

If you think children are the future, but support reducing funds for SNAP, you are a hypocrite. 

If you believe in education, but dismiss evolution or climate change as hoaxes, you are a hypocrite. 

If you believe in the sovereignty of the United States, but support forced incursions on Native American lands, you are a hypocrite. 

If you believe that we need to drain the swamp of Washington but support Trump’s cabinet picks, you are a hypocrite. 

If you believe in the Constitution, but support indiscriminate detainment and torture, you are a hypocrite. 

If you believe our troops lives have worth, but support Trump’s claims to foreign countries natural resources, you are a hypocrite. 

If you believe that unborn black babies lives matter, but black lives don’t matter, you are a hypocrite. 

If you believe that we deserve life, liberty and happiness, but support taking away healthcare from millions of Americans, you are a hypocrite. 

If you believe that the practice of your religion is more important than the practice of no religion or a different religion, you are a hypocrite. 

If you believe in equal rights under the law, but don’t support marriage equality and non discrimination for LGBTQ Americans, you are a hypocrite. 

If you are glad that California or New York do not decide national policy for you, but insist on forcing your red state policies on others, you are a hypocrite. 

If you believe in the first amendment, but call people who peacefully protest the President as hooligans, you are a hypocrite. 

If you are an American but think dissent is disrespectful, you are a hypocrite. 

If you think that anything that has happened over the last week is normal or acceptable, then you have not been paying attention.

For a country that was founded and built by immigrants and refugees, I cannot believe where we stand now. What is this country coming to?

Tears of Trump Supporters

GOPocalypse recently published an article about Trump supporters who were upset about changes to the ACA, such as the pre-existing conditions clause, and its journey to repeal. I realize GOPocalypse is not a neutral publication, but I had to share some of the tweets.

@realDonaldTrump So back to a choice between rent & insurance again now that I know I have serious health issues? Voted for you, now worried

@realDonaldTrump I voted for you. I have Crohn’s and private insurance. I’m 61. I must have pre existing conditions in my insurance plan.

This is a perfect example of why you need to understand what candidates stand for when they are running for office. These “former” Trump supporters are boohooing because the steps to repeal ACA has already begun. Maybe they were ignorant (as in unaware) to know that ACA and Obamacare are the same thing. Maybe they didn’t believe him because he’s a liar and flip-flopper. Who knows? But now they will be sitting on the sidelines praying for good health and asking God, Allah, Buddha, or just family and friends to help them pay obscene medical bills and prescriptions.
