I am a “deplorable” person… and proud of it!
A number of years ago a candidate for President referred to me and millions of others like me as a person who ‘clings to my gun and my religion’, and even though when he first uttered those words it was meant as a derogatory remark, I took it as praise for the way I live my life. Since I first started writing for this blog the ‘by-line’ at the top reads “Pete’s Alaska – God, family, country my view out the cabin window”, meaning my priority is first with my Lord then my family and then my country all of which I will defend until my death.
So now when another Presidential candidate says, ‘you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables….. the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it’ I once again have to stand up and say yes I am proud to be an Islamaphobe. No I do not hate people who are Muslims but once again common sense dictates that we do not allow a flood of migrants into this country from countries who see America as the ‘great Satin’ and want to destroy us without a lengthy (in depth) background check.
Our founding fathers knew full well that to create a great nation its people should be steadfast in their religious beliefs, with strong family values and a love for their country and freedom, protected by their right to bear arms. Yet one of the current candidates for President espouses unfettered immigration by people who have voiced no intention of assimilating into the American way of life, and in fact want to destroy it. Whoever wins the upcoming election could indeed change the very nature of our way of life.
So once again
I say I am proud to be
a deplorable person
who clings to my bible and my gun
because for 240 years
our nation has been a shinning light of freedom in the world
and I want it to stay that way
for future generations.
