HYPOCRISY OF THE LEFT

The protests against the legitimate election of President-Elect Donald J Trump are populated by the same people who gave him derision for saying he might not accept the outcome of the election. Yet to the streets they go, without anyone actually offending them. The guilty flee when no man accuses. It's fine for them to not accept the outcome of the election, but wasn't for Trump.

Others in California wish to leave the Union, yet they scorned Texans who suggested they may want to do the same if Clinton won. Note the hypocrisy? Why is that. First of all, the fair-minded observer will note that there are no principles on the left. Values, often misplaced, but no principles. There is a whiny obnoxious tone on the left as well. The general trend is that they dislike or even hate their country. Their way or no way.

Even Obama and Clinton found a way to be gracious losers. There are those who refuse to even TRY to work with Mr. Trump. What are they afraid of? Likely exposure that their ideas are old and tired. If it becomes exposed, they lose their "I want it free" argument.

At some point there needs to be an infusion of intellectual honesty in both left and right ideologists. Intellectual honesty applies the same principles to everyone regardless of their ideology.

Many of the protesters interviewed on TV showed how uniformed they are. Likely, many of them were paid to protest, but certainly not all. One young woman interviewed in Oakland, CA said that she was protesting for the environment and for the US to take more environmental steps which she was sure wouldn't happen in a Trump administration. Up to this point, she, while not necessarily correct in her science, was on an intellectual track. Then she went on to say that people in India and China area dying from air pollution. Well...those countries manufacture their own pollutants. We've all seen video of Beijing in a cloud of smog so thick one can barely imagine breathing there. Not the fault of the US.

Another protester said she wanted California to leave the Union because California gives the US money to support the rest of the country and that California doesn't need the rest of us. So uninformed she doesn't understand the strength of the Union but also that California goes bankrupt without the rest of the country.

Yet these protesters have a right to protest peacefully. You don't need principles to protest, just an excuse. Learning more about the Constitution and what the Framers had in mind is what these young folks need. They also need a lesson in what hypocrisy is and why it's a bad thing. Then they need to look inward and see who they really are.

Develop intellectual honesty and hypocrisy usually disappears. Give it a try leftists. It might look very good on you.

Do you have any observations about the hypocrisy of the left? If so, please comment below.

Yours in the Constitution,
Thomas Paine

No different from Baltimore. The liberals always want to come off as the more caring, rainbow, feminine flip flop LGBT group, yet they are the welfare, affordable housing, food stamp, disability kings and queens who are proving to be extremely violent. I believe under the Trump administration we need to expose these people/mooches/deadbeats for who they really are. I believe Trump needs to drug test ANY entitlement recipient immediately and eliminate the majority of these criminals. No more free rides. This way we can easily take care of our VETERANS who risked their lives for very minimal pay. I'd like to see any Liberals argue that FACT.

It's a new day in America and it's time to clean up the crap we've been dealing with for far too lone. Quit Protesting and GET A JOB!

Who exactly are they protesting? The will of the people that voted Trump?

it's funny how that now that Trump has won, all you hear is "It is time to unite and work together to achieve our goals."
If Hillary had won, it would be "We have a clear mandate from the American people to move forward with our agenda"

I think the mandate is on the GOP side now

Eight years of division does not end now. Wikileaks and Veritas exposed the connection with the libs, Soros and the anarchists. It's going to take some time before this country comes together. Their wish to divide the country is alive and we must not let it sway our goal.

Mr. Paine, your comments are right-on. Education is the key factor.

And these college pukes always get chosen over me for a job, because of their piece of paper. Ironic isn't it.

I am in my 50's, and when I was growing up, I would get my a-- beat if I acted out the way those fools I watch on television do. I am so sick of watching these so called "protestors" tear things up, that do not belong to them. They are not protestors, they are spoiled/ignorant thugs that have not had their a-- beat enough. If they had grown up like I had, where parents and teachers could spank you for acting up (and not arrested for doing it), there wouldn't be this outrageous crap going on today.

Actually it is partly the fault of the US. A lot of the manufacturing jobs went overseas not only because of the lower labor costs but also due to the high cost and threat of even higher costs of overly aggressive environmental laws. Also while watching Clinton's rally at NC State the biggest cheers were when she said that she would take care of their school debt.

HILLARY was NOT a gracious loser. She appeared in purple and black to evoke sympathy and indicate that funerals were in the making. SHE IS NOT A PEACE MAKER.
