The Left Should Welcome Trump?
Gary Kittilsen, over at the Libertarian Galatians blog, makes the case that left wingers should have much in common with Donald Trump and should be welcoming him to the White House:
"House Democrats protested and snubbed his inauguration, but why? Is it just because they lost? Isn’t there much they can agree with the 45th president on? Donald Trump has said on the record the three most important functions of government are defense, healthcare, and education. The last two are never mentioned in the constitution and are truly progressive ideas they should be beloved by the left."
He also doesn't think The Left's criticism of Trump's supposed war on woman activities hold water:
Please, don’t give me the war on women, you guys on the left love the Clinton’s. Let’s be honest the nasty things Trump said are no match against the horrid things Bill Clinton did to women. Don’t give me the anti-Muslim thing, you progressives love Obama and Obama loves bombing Muslim countries.
He goes on and makes a good case. It's simple enough to me: it's just partisan sniping for the most part.
On a related note, Reggie tells us we should be careful throwing that nazi word around:
"But the truth about Nazis isn’t funny at all. It’s bloody and horrible and gut churning. And it involves machine guns and butchery and inhumanity on a scale that takes your breath away. Nobody is really a “soup Nazi” …unless they served it in a concentration camp."
