For People who thought Obama was a Saint and Trump is Hitler...

I'm tired of being silent and afraid to speak up. I knew this would be a place where I would be accepted for seeing reality as it actually is. When I see people saying that Trump's actions are unprecedented and that his predecessor was an upstanding president with no significant scandals, or scandals not nearly as significant as those of Trump's thus far, I have to wonder what rock they've been living under.

Now, don't get me wrong here. Anyone can compile a list of things about a president that make them out to be a super villain if they set their mind to it, and they're not wrong for doing so. They should be held accountable, all of them. But this idea that Trump is dangerous and that our previous president was a saint is a complete fabrication. A bold faced lie. So I decided to make a little list of just a few of the things they put their fingers in their ears for and rocked back and forth hoping they would go away, then later acted like Trump doing arguably similar things was the end of the world. I used sources of all kinds of varieties on purpose. I took some from memory and google, some from lists that helped jog my memory.

It's time to stop rewriting history in the ways that we want to remember it, and start facing actual truths. If we can't all realize that problems exist on both sides of the political fence, we'll never do anything but play political football. We need people to see the world as it is, not as they want it to be. That's the only way we can come together and be unified. I understand the hate that I will be bringing on myself, but I can't be silent anymore.

I bring to you my list, and I hope that it serves you well in helping people to see reality by first recognizing that the last 8 years were not as clean as they believe:

    Thank you DFG. It just amazing me that someone not from the US can see all of this and yet half the voters in my country are oblivious to it. Oh well, like Mark Twain said, "It is easier to fool people than it is to convince them that they have been fooled".
    I won't stand for people who are intolerant of racism, bullying, religious intolerance, sexism, homophobia, ableism, or any other form of discrimination.

    I know, it's retarded, the media isn't helping and the liberals are just digging themselves in deeper. They want another Sweden, the Rape capital of Europe.

  • Hey Dfg,
    Great list!, Thank you.
    I found it just now and I'm using it in the am. I've tried to use a couple of these comparisons without the references to back 'em up - It's hard enough to educate the Ignorant...... Thanks for all the research.

    I stop at this coffee place for intelligent conversation before facing the world. Now a few of the same people can't do anything but bash Trump. No other topic allowed. No other viewpoint heard. They are idots speaking bullshit so loudly that they drown out sense. I can't convince them that Obummer wasn't God.....(I don't try, I know that you can't teach Stupid. I just hope that tangible references cause them to wander off in shock,,..and maybe off a cliff. ). The rest of the people seem to be just going along, no one wants to argue - most really just want caffeine.

    I did not expect the peeples to be quite so rabid this late in the game. I have never seen so much political opinion based on so little fact. He may be doing it wrong but at least he's doing it. I'm so sick of listening to second hand bullshit arguments and criticisims (not to mention 'Fake News'!) rehashed from Fox or affiliates..... Your media references ought to 'proof' them wrong... Hopefully I can open a mind or two. I used to enjoy the cuss and discussions.

    I sometimes wonder if the attention the media shines on Trumps inadequacies is a planned diversion. I know my paranoia's showing but these people used to occasionally give me hope ( - or at least amusment) before going out in the world.



    Any Way, People still suck.
    Thank You & Good Day!
