“LOSS OF RESPECT”

by OPOVV, ©2016

(Aug. 7, 2016) — “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to ‘Pulse of the Nation.’ Hello, my name is Professor Zorkophsky, and I will be hosting the show. Mr. Roving and the Chief are on assignment and will be back shortly. As you can see, we’re under the awning across the street from the railroad station about to interrupt people’s lives.

Hello, Miss, I’m…”

“You’re Zork, that professor. Yes, I watch ‘The Pulse’ every night. What’s the question of the day?”

“What about Trump endorsing RINO Ryan and ‘Don’t Mention Obama’s Middle Name’ John McCain?”

“Caved, is what he did. Oh, I’m not saying that I won’t vote for him – I wouldn’t go that far – but he didn’t need to butter up the establishment; to ‘get on board’ with the RNC.

“My friends say I don’t know anything about politics, but I say he didn’t need to do what he did. Look, those who like Ryan and McCain aren’t one of us, got it? And there’s enough of us that’ll get out and give the vote to Trump that we don’t need any amnesty low-life RINOS running with our herd, get it?

“Did you hear about that new singing group, ‘Don and the Rhinos’? Oh, sure, they’re going after Hillary, but just the same, it makes you wonder.

“I mean, it’s like Trump surrendered to the RNC. What’s next:  is it going to be like dominoes falling? Maybe let China and everyone else continue to rip us off; no mention of the Federal Reserve taking everyone for a ride; not deporting the Muslims in our country.

“You know what? These ragheads that come into our country are given a fast track to citizenship so they can’t be deported, did you know that? And, also, did you know that the DOJ is calling the shots to Homeland Security so the only thing Homeland Security does is function as rental agents for Muslims? They find nice little calm communities and place a bunch of Muslims in and there goes the neighborhood.

“Do you think Trump will even mention anything about the corrupt DOJ and allowing CAIR to operate within our borders? Well, really now, he hasn’t said anything about CAIR as it is, has he?

“Look, we’ve got to take whatever we can get, I understand that, and anything is better than four more years of Obama, but still…

“The thing about it is, though, these people, our enemy – that would be Islam – won’t stop; won’t ever stop, and now Trump just endorsed two people who could care less for the United States of America’s future. Next we’ll hear Trump apologize for not allowing hundreds of thousands more Muslims to just walk right on in and get better treatment than our Veterans get.

“Okay, there’s no such thing as a ‘perfect’ candidate but, just the same, I’m very, very, very disappointed in Mr. Trump as a fellow citizen. I think he didn’t need to do what he did – endorsing RINOs – and if I were in his shoes I would’ve just gone along as I started: my own person.

“Yes, that’s a good point. My friend said the idea is to defeat Hillary, but I don’t agree. I believe the point is to win on your own merits. There’s a difference between an honorable win and a win by defeating the enemy. Let me say it this way: the most lasting victories occur when there’s not a shot fired.

“Getting down in the gutter with Hillary’s objectives by endorsing two of Hillary’s platforms – Muslims and illegal immigrants – is a coward’s way to achieve victory.

“I know there’s no possible substitute for being the ‘King-of-the-Hill’ when it’s all over and done with, but some victories are sweeter than others, is my point. The demarcation; the difference; the black and white just got grey between Trump and Hillary.

“Me? I don’t respect either Ryan or McCain, and for Trump to kowtow to the career politicians just lowered my admiration of the man. He didn’t have to do it and he shouldn’t have done it, is what I’m saying. And that’s my train! Bye!”

“Goodbye. Wow, that one was a talker, all the way to the top of the hour, so our time has expired. I’d like to thank the crew for making my job a breeze and so, on behalf of everyone, I’ll be wishing you all a good night: Goodnight.

“A new group, eh? ‘Don and the Rhinos’: funny. She did say she’ll still vote for Trump but she just doesn’t respect the man as she once did: too bad. Hey, what do you say we all grab a burger? It’ll be my treat.”

Semper Fi

    Fran asks:
    “What good will it do if Trump loses?”
    At no point in the editorial does it even suggest of Trump losing the election.
    At no point does it even suggest an endorsement of Hillary.
    The point of the editorial was a light-year beyond being explicitly clear that kowtowing to the RNC was not a necessary step for Trump to garner more votes than Hillary.
    However you cut it, the argument is petty-nitpicking since there are still American citizens who support “No Picture ID Required”, therefore opening the floodgates for illegal voting multiple times.
    One would have expected the readers of The Post & Email to have the reasoning prowess to comprehend satire and obliqueness even if the above editorial stated a plain and simple fact.
    Oh well, one wonders if the revival of the Poll Tax wouldn’t be such a bad idea after all.
    Sincerely,

    My question to those that believe the nonsense the author of this article wrote is what good will it do if Trump loses? Only a fool believes that Trump will tell everything he has planned, like what departments will be shuttered to reduce the Federal budget.

    This author needs to wake up to reality.
