The hate is still there… why?

November 9, 2016



Today as I read hundreds of postings about the election one common theme was contained in almost every post I read… anger. I am also sorry to say that this angst was also revealed in a correspondence with a family member and it led me to wonder why?

With the election over why do so many still feel and display this anger? During the election most news outlets reported that it was Trump’s followers that exhibited this hate and anger, maybe the news outlets missed interviewing some of those who write the postings I read. But surely one must assume that those bloggers were only a representation of some of the millions who supported Hillary, so how come we only heard on the news about Trumps hate filled supporters?

The election is over yet the hate persists and I wonder what I would have read in those blog posts had Hillary had won? Why do they feel they have to continue to carry this cancer of hate when no good can come with holding it in their hearts?

The election is over
the majority of our nation has spoken
one can now only hope
Trumps actions
speak louder than his words.

    Since you mention me in passing, I’ll comment.
    Angst – is NOT – Anger.

    Angst — a feeling of deep anxiety or dread, typically an unfocused one about the human condition or the state of the world in general.

    So I do not feel and display anger.
    Everyone is not feeling and displaying Anger.
    Please do not lump us all together.

    How come we don’t hear about Hillary’s completely supportive concession speech.

    We forget how Trump said, even before the election, that it was rigged, and he’d have to investigate if he lost.

    In comparison, Hillary graciously conceded
    and is not calling for any recounts or investigations.

    To answer your question about only seeing angry Trump supporters, another example of the oh-so-obvious media bias.
    According to CNN, they emphasized that a good share of Trump voters consisted of white men w/out college degrees. Just my opinion, but looks like they feel a lot of Trump voters were not well-educated. News flash CNN, you don’t have to be college educated to be smart.

    the reason why i think there’s so many hateful words being spread right now is because people think that Trump shouldn’t become the president, because he has absolutely NO political experiences, all he has is the know-how of running a business corporation, and, people are probably afraid that his lack of experiences are going to take the United States down…and, nobody wants to be responsible for the outcomes of the election, those who had voted as well as those who hadn’t…

      The reason for the people being upset and angry has nothing to do with his lack of political experience and everything to do with his personality, he is a Bully.

      He makes fun of women, cripples, makes inane accusations to distract, he was RECORDED making lewd comments about women… the list is long.

      He is offensive. A true Deplorable. I defended those that were lumped into the deplorable category with him… but, well, if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck… I don’t know if I can do that anymore.

        Maybe it’s how Trumps is so offensive, that it feels new, that, is why the American public chose him, because they wanted something different, maybe???

        I know people (and am related to) that voted for Trump. It’s confusing to me how he was an option… even if they didn’t like Clinton… there were 3 other independent candidates… As far as their reasoning, it involved very little (reasoning). They are mad, and I guess they wanted everyone else to be mad…? Trump has been a horrible example for children and teens. My daughter complains about boys at her school that bully people this week, and brag about Trump… but, for the most part, people are behaving… but really, the fact that he won, and 53% of the country DID NOT vote for him, is the only positive thing that I can say.

    Pete – despite Obama’s promises of bringing the country together he did more to polarize and alienate so many factions than any previous president. As such he has presided over a truly historic election which saw his party lose the presidency and not regain control of either the House or the Senate. ‘We the people’ have spoken and we’re tired of the elitism and the political ‘status quo’. Somehow a lot of folks forget Trump entered this race as the ‘anti-politician’ candidate and his basis was he didn’t have all the political baggage carried by the other candidates – regardless of party. By definition he couldn’t have had much in the way of political experience if he was to take such a stance. He ran his campaign without really being ‘bought’ by major conglomerates and that has to frighten a lot of the existing power-base in Washington, DC. My hopes and prayers are his administration doesn’t turn out like the current one let alone that of Jimmy Carter. Both were voted in by a public sick and tired of the status quo and looking for a change. In each case we truly did get ‘change’ and it was in very negative directions!! While I still have serious doubts regarding Trump he remains a better choice than a borderline felon with an inability to tell the truth! I found it interesting so few lame-stream media outlets focused on the Hillary supporters – mainly in California – who rioted, burned cars and threw objects at moving traffic early Wednesday morning when the election results were firmed up and announced. I don’t recall any McCain or Romney supporters doing so in ’08 or ’12. The results are in, it doesn’t appear there was much in the way of voter fraud and even the markets have settled down so it is time to give Trump a reasonable chance and get on with life…

    It’s awful in Oakland. Violence abound. I mentioned to Dave that it would probably be the same if Hillary won since celebration in that city seems to be the same result!
