If You Even Mention Trump, You’re in Trouble
Lifezette ^ | 04 Nov 2016 | Lawrence Meyers

The intolerance of the Left has been on display for some time. Yet the vehemence with which the Left despises Donald Trump has put the hate machine into overdrive. If one supports Trump, it is tantamount to carpet-bombing every dog rescue kennel in America. If one speaks favorably of Trump, one is a racist-sexist-homophobic-transphobic-seal-clubbing hater.

And if one dares to praise Trump — it can damage a reputation irreparably.

Hollywood liberals have long blacklisted outspoken conservatives. “Dilbert” cartoon creator Scott Adams is experiencing this firsthand. Adams made several blog posts in August and September of 2015, which were astonishingly prescient, including calling Trump as the nominee and that he’d win in a landslide. He listed specific reasons why Trump qualified as a “master persuader.” One such observation was the “linguistic kill shot” Trump used to wipe out Jeb Bush, saying, “You are watching a master wizard rewire the public in real time.”

Big mistake.

The Washington Post reported that Adams has seen all of his speaking engagements and much of his licensing revenue dry up, simply because he has publicly analyzed some of Trump’s brilliant communications strategies. One cannot even attempt to educate the public without being attacked.

(That’s not the only reason liberals are running away from him. He’s also attacked some leftist tropes in much the same way, albeit with less glamour, as Milo Yiannopolous.)

It is, sadly, part of a trend. Hollywood liberals have long blacklisted outspoken conservatives. Individuals from the highest ranks of writer-producers to on-set veteran production staff have learned to keep their mouths shut when it comes to opposing liberal political positions.

Ever since David Mamet came out as a conservative in 2008, Hollywood hasn’t given him another big-screen directing gig. Back in August, actor Antonio Sabato Jr. spoke publicly about his support for Donald Trump and claims he has since been blacklisted by Hollywood.

“When you’re in my business, you can’t talk about [conservative] politics. You just can’t. You’re attacked viciously in a way that I’ve never been attacked before,” he told “I’ve had fantastic directors who have said officially to my agents and managers they will never hire me again. They will never even see me for projects. That’s unfair.”

autoplay: on | off Veteran actress Stacey Dash, who has appeared in more than two dozen films and on television since 1982, told CNSNews, "My acting opportunities have ceased because of my political beliefs. I'm being persecuted in Hollywood. I've been blacklisted. My agents have dropped me. I haven't auditioned in over a year because of my beliefs and what I stand for."

Dick Yuengling Jr. owns America's oldest brewery, launched in 1829 in Pennsylvania. After pledging his support for Trump, Pennsylvania House of Representatives Democrat Brian Sims (who is openly gay) called for all gay bars to boycott the brewery's products because it supports an "anti-woman, anti-immigrant, anti-LGBT, anti-racial minority and anti-equality" agenda.

Weight-loss empress Jenny Craig has been a major donor to the University of San Diego. But — uh oh — she dared to hold a fundraiser for Trump. A group called USD Alumni and Students Against Hate penned a letter demanding she withdraw her support — or that USD remove her name from a building dedicated in her name.

It doesn't matter if you supported Barack Obama in 2008, either. Brian France, the CEO and chairman of NASCAR, supported Trump back in March. He was careful to distinguish that it was him, not NASCAR, that supported Trump, but it made no difference. Despite his support for Obama and a track record of promoting diversity, France got bludgeoned in the sports media.

Jonathan Ingram of The Sports Xchange called the endorsement "a mistake." George Diaz of the Orlando Sentinel sarcastically wrote, "Who wouldn't want to be associated with a crass, juvenile, egomaniacal class clown who has turned the 2016 presidential campaign into a frightening freak show?"

And finally, Bernard Marcus is the founder of The Home Depot. Not only did he say he never could have started his company under the economic policies of Obama, but he endorsed Trump. Even though the company distanced itself from Marcus' words, the statement triggered an online call for a company boycott — which, thankfully, appears to have failed.

And it is just this kind of retaliation that makes it reasonable that many Trump supporters do not speak up.

They’ll vote for him, but they’ll be missed by the pollsters, the commentators, the journalists, and the politicians.

That is, however, why they call it the ‘silent majority’.

Get out and vote, silent majority.

I was at a rally in NH and when news cameras came around, a number of people ducked down or turned their back. I asked them why. They said they owned small businesses and if they were seen on the evening news, their businesses would end up getting vandalized.

And the shoe is definitely not on the other foot. If a business owner is at a Hillary rally, they know that no Trump supporter is going to burn down their store. Trump people simply aren’t like that.

But all Trump people know exactly how the Hillary people act. It’s scary. So people hide their views until they are in the voting booth.

That is a great example, CCG.

They know we aren’t going to burn them out or beat them up.

It isn't just coming out in support for Trump that will get celebs in trouble.

Failing to badmouth him (while also failing to enthusiastically endorse Hillary Clinton) is considered equally as egregious.

Look at all the heat Taylor Swift has brought upon herself for simply keeping her mouth shut.

It’s time for Taylor Swift to say something about Donald Trump

ask the anti Trump crowd to give proof.. recorded where? then add the Arkancide link to your comments.. and tell them to check out who hillary is. They usually are a bunch of younguns who were not born when bill clinton was gov of Arkansas.. and are not earnest enough to have done any research...they just repeat what they’ve heard and want to believe it... it’s ammunition to their dead brains and all that anger they’ve built up for the country being so destroyed by the democrats and republicans who did squat to save it. They blame us and give obama, the destroyer, a free ride. plus, they are an ugly bunch!!!

Incredible. But it’s been like this for some time. It’s like reverse McCarthyism. If you are suspected of NOT being leftist, you are blackballed.

How nutty can they get? Monday I got a phone call from a neighboring state. A man 70 miles from me inquired as to getting a 125 years old pocket watch repaired, but couldn’t find a watchmaker locally at home.
I told him to drive up, told him the highways, exits, and turn to my parking lot and it could be a couple of hours. He replied he was on his way NOW!!
Two hours later the door opened and he entered. It was 1:15PM and Limbaugh was on the radio. He stopped in his tracks, and before I could say ,”hello”, he barked at me..
“YOUR LISTENING TO HIM!!!!!!” With that, he turned pulled the door shut and departed post haste. I guess it has really become that “over the edge.”

Drain The Swamp!

How Can Any American?

How can any American support one, running for President, who does not respect the stated purpose of the Constitution, she has repeatedly sworn to preserve? The Preamble to the Constitution states that purpose, very clearly:

We the people of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Our "posterity," of course, are our lineal descendants. A purpose that is 100% consistent with Donald Trump's call to put America First. It is 100% consistent with the Fifth Commandment, and traditional Western values, in general. Mrs. Clinton's call for open borders, and the failure to properly vet immigrants from lands with very different value systems, is 100% inconsistent with the Constitutional purpose.

How can any American refuse to vote for Donald Trump, who not only understands & accepts what the Constitution requires. He strenuously exposes Mrs. Clinton on issue after issue!

Trump is willing to risk a lifetime of success--his whole career & fortune--to take on a corrupt media, that tries in every unfair, intellectually dishonest, way to cover up Mrs. Clinton's crimes and repeated acts of betrayal, in order to stand for us, our Constitution and our clear interests, on a host of vital issues. Consider:

1. Trump supports and has been endorsed by the border guards. Mrs. Clinton has shown only disdain for those trying to keep America safe from a flood of unauthorized invaders.

2. Trump supports the rights of Americans to efficiently arm themselves, both for their own protection and for the protection of America! Mrs. Clinton has repeatedly sought means to disarm American families.

3. Trump has supported local Police in violent confrontations with neighborhood thugs; while Mrs. Clinton & Obama have allied themselves with virulently anti Police groups--some funded by George Soros--groups determined to deny their law abiding neighbors, the Police protection, necessary to make those neighborhoods safe.

4. Trump understands that making any neighborhood safe, is the key to increasing constructive activity in such neighborhood;--the key to people being able to start local businesses, with some hope of success; the key to better job opportunities, better credit ratings, etc. Mrs. Clinton has shown herself more intent on encouraging and supporting those Soros funded groups.

5. Donald Trump supports all forms of American energy production! He wants to let the coal miners get back to work; to take advantage of improved technology that allows a cleaner use of coal. Mrs. Clinton has insulted the coal miners, by refusing to help them get back to work, while she patronizes them; offering them a new dependence on even more Governmental meddling.

6. Returning to the Constitution--the solemn compact (or contract) that authorizes us to even have a Federal Government;--the charter, that once--when truly honored--made us the envy of the earth:

Donald Trump has pledged to appoint only those who honor the clear intent of that charter, to the Federal Judiciary. Mrs. Clinton has promised to only appoint Judges who agree with her ghoulish view of Feminist issues: such as the idea that it is O.K. for a woman--on mere whim--to have a healthy, already half born baby, killed in cold blood, in something euphemistically labeled a "partial birth abortion!"

7. Donald Trump, daily addresses great rallies, to discuss these and other vital issues; such as the damage to American workers & communities, resulting from trade deals, and immigration policies, that do not protect our rooted population. Mrs. Clinton has avoided in depth discussion of issues; preferring, instead, an incessant attack on Donald Trump's personality; his tone; his supporters;--in each case misrepresenting the same by a combination of lies, cherry picked but misleading data, gross exaggerations, and citations of spurious media smears, engineered by a slavish press, which covers up actual crimes, in a blind, but determined, support for the perpetrator.

Under such circumstances: How can any American vote for Mrs. Clinton? How can any American refuse to vote for Donald Trump?

Note further: There are thousands of organizations, some Faith based (both evangelical & social); some secular, but ideological; some based on Humanist arrogance (Return To Babel). Among them there is something to represent just about any imagined human interest. Our written Constitution is the sole organizational effort focused solely on the interests of the rooted American. How dare any American betray or trivialize our organization; the Constitutional Republic, as it was intended by the Fathers, who won it for their posterity?! How can any American refuse to vote for Donald Trump?

May the living God Bless all those who understand what is truly at stake!

One final note:

The Difference Between Virtue & Sanctimony

As we move into the last days of the 2016 Presidential campaign in America, there remain some, both moderates & conservatives, who feel a need to disparage Donald Trump over matters of personal taste, polish or social decorum, rather than on questions of public policy--rather than on actual issues over the proper functions & purpose of our Federal Government; rather than on issues, which go to the very survival of our traditional way of life.

It is not our purpose, here, to pass judgment of anyone's view of proper social decorum, or on anyone's personality, or methods of argumentation in political exchanges or discussion. Here we have dealt with priorities; with present as well as future perspectives on the valid priorities of the American people: With what matters in relation to future prospects, material & spiritual; to the continuity of America & the Americans; recognizing that the future happiness of hundreds of millions of Americans is on the line: In short what is fifty thousand fold more important than the incident in which Donald Trump responded a bit rudely to a pretty "debate" moderator's insulting questions, or made some gauche comments many years ago. In short, the difference between actual virtue and sanctimony.

DT doesn’t matter to the left. They would vehemently despise anyone or anything running to the right of them. All this bunk about how they hate DT is all BS made up hogwaash. The truth of the matter is that DT is conservative/GOP/right-leaning. The left couldn’t care who was in DT’s position. They would despise with incredulous violent and atrocious acts just because someone had the gall to be against them. When we keep pandering to the left in this fashion, that the person is the one who should be taken down, then we will continue to have rino’s. Stand up grow a pair and use them.

I have a daughter, white college educated a twice Obama voter. She has said early in the year, she is not voting for HRC.

We were talking last week, I said please do not vote for HRC, if you do our relationship may never be the same, its bad enough you voted for BHO twice. She said, I am not voting for her, then asked me what I was going to do, I am voting Trump, she yelled at me, all she had to say about Trump is he is a womanizer, says bad things about woman, I was surprised how angry she was, haven't talked about it since.

This same daughter recently bought a house, by herself no man in her life yet, she is 31. I was visiting her and helping her paint and was included in a dinner conversation with her roommate, single, college educated. They said to eachother, do you think there are guys out there that are real men? Speaking among themselves, wondering if there are any left, they turned to me and asked do you think there are any men, grown up men left for us? Not in Portland, OR sorry!!
