Why Does the Left So Hate Our Beloved Donald J. Trump?

Why Trump Is So Hated by Leftists

by Lloyd Marcus  at American Thinker:

My brother expressed his disgust watching an animated TV show trashing Trump, titled Our Cartoon President.  Incredibly, leftists have hijacked the airwaves and everywhere people gather to exploit as platforms to spread their vitriolic, insane hatred for Trump.  Outrageously, TV coverage of the Olympics included leftist hatred for the Trump administration.

Despite the shocking discovery that leftist policies probably played a role in the deaths of 17 kids in the Florida school shooting, leftists continue puppet-mastering students to blame Trump.

Even Sunday worship has been hijacked by leftists to trash Trump.  My brother asked the pastor of his all black church to please stop including a lie-filled Democrat-talking-points rant about Trump in his sermons.

Leftist disrespect and venomous hatred for President Trump is unprecedented, over the top, and boldly spewed 24/7.  I wondered, why?

I reached out to prominent conservatives and Republicans for their thoughts.


I think Trump is hated by the left because his ideology, his words and actions, are the exact opposite of the left’s ideology. He is not a “globalist,” but loves America, our homeland; he knows that we can’t continue being the world’s number-one giver if we are not safe and successful ourselves.  He knows that capitalism, not communism, will feed the poor; capitalism makes everyone richer, while communism makes everyone equally poor.  He knows that free enterprise and less government regulation will provide jobs and boost our economy, not socialist handouts and overregulation.

He knows that less unemployment and getting out of debt will save our nation much more than wasting time and money on things like the scientifically unproven climate change hoax and its hidden goal of controlling the masses.  He believes in individual freedom and responsibility, not government control.  He’s not a secularist (new word for atheist, according to Julia Sweeney’s TED talk), but a defender of religious liberty, including Christianity.  He is protective of Americans and not protective of our enemies, some of whom sneak into our midst through unenforced immigration law.

He thinks all lives matter, not just black lives; he respects the police, firefighters, and military instead of fanning the Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals flames of violent civil unrest and class and racial warfare.  He is not a saint, and he doesn’t pretend to be.  He believes in free speech, not political correctness.  The left is confused; leftists don’t know how to respond to a politician who speaks from the heart, not from talking points.  The left hates Trump because the Tea Party loves him.


Trump is hated the same way and for the same reason President Reagan was hated.  He is a fighter, and he is moving a conservative agenda forward.  The left did not like George W. Bush, but they did not hate him the way they hate Trump, because Trump believes in fighting and winning.


Why are the reprobates in both parties so averse to helping President Trump stabilize and protect what little of a future we have left?  What is it that both political parties find so repulsive about protecting American citizens?

The answer is fairly easy to state, and more complex to explain in intricate detail.  Ergo, I will simplify the explanation as much as possible.  They are fighting President Trump because he is a threat to their “one-world government.”

President Trump’s victory in America has spawned a new generation of pro-nationalist leaders who refuse to be ruled by a heteronomous government that is handpicked in a wine- and cheese-filled room located in a hotel at some posh island retreat.  Bush had great dreams for a North American-style European Union by implementing NAFTA, full amnesty, and open borders.

While we were marginally successful in stopping Bush, Obama destroyed any chance of making it happen because of his contemptible arrogance and his hedonistic wife, who viewed the American taxpayers as her American Express Card.

Notwithstanding, the bones of North America becoming the Western-type E.U. were still in place, and both parties knew that it was only a matter of time until they succeeded.

But then “Along Came Donald J. Trump.”  Once again, the arrogance of the ruling elite thought We the People could be bullied and intimidated into doing as we were told.  But this time, their schemes and machinations did not work because we saw in President Trump a man we could trust.  And the power elite will never forgive President Trump nor will they forgive We the People for electing him.



As I explained in the run-up to the 2016 election here and here, I’ve always believed that Donald Trump is the Real Deal.  That doesn’t mean I agree with everything he does or says.  But there’s little question that the president is his own man.  And that drives the Establishment crazy.  The oligarchs want someone they can control.  They rely on leveraged politicos to do their evil bidding, but Trump has given them no such foothold.  So they use their Establishment-controlled media to foment hate against him.  This fake news jihad is effective but will not stop Trump.


He fights!


Trump is hated not only by the left, but by the RINOs for the exact same reason: they can’t control him.  They can’t intimidate or shame him as they do everyone else, and probably the most poignant and profound is that he believes in something greater than himself, than the state, than politics…and that is God.

They hate that because they serve a fallen savior who battles against the truth on a daily basis while Trump champions the truth.

I wish to thank these great patriots for their insightful input.  Here’s why I believe that Trump is so hated by leftists.

Leftist hatred for Trump is rooted in their mission to undermine all things wholesome, godly, and good for America.  Everything leftists do, in essence, gives the God of Christianity the middle finger.  It is not coincidental that leftists hijack Christian symbols and institutions for their anti-God agenda.

For example: The rainbow was God’s promise to Noah to never again let floodwaters destroy all life.  Homosexuals hijacked God’s rainbow to symbolize behavior God calls an abomination.

God created marriage as a holy union between one man and one woman.

Despite civil unions readily available to them, homosexuals successfully broke down marriage, resulting in every conceivable deviant configuration to eventually be legally declared marriage.

Trump in the White House is a miracle.  Despite leftists’ 24-7 efforts to stop and destroy him, President Trump has remarkably implemented 64% of his Make-America-Great-Again agenda.  Fasten your seat belts, leftists: Trump has only just begun.




February 22, 1980…..That Miracle of American Sports! USA 4 USSR 3


More than half of the members of the 1980 American Olympic hockey team,  perhaps 14 players in all, were raised in, or learned their hockey  from my own state of Minnesota.

Wintertime between 1955 to 1965 I attended over 300 Minnesota high school hockey games.  I was the state high school boy  hockey ratings guy for the Sunday St. Paul Pioneer Press.    Roseau, Thief River Falls,  International Falls, Duluth East, Grand Rapids,  Eveleth, St. Paul Johnson, Minneapolis Roosevelt, Edina  were the hockey powerhouses perennially  leading  the ratings from 1947 through the 1960s.    St. Paul Johnson was THE hockey powerhouse  from the Twin City in  those days…..winning State championships in 1947, 1953, 1955,  and 1963.

Herbie Brooks starred at  St. Paul Johnson High School leading the school into  two state tournament victories,  1953 to 1955.  He was an awkward skater from hip to ankles, rather slow in the speed,  yet he starred because he was a star.   He was so clever on the attack with the puck under his control, spectators and competing players often seemed to  fell  he could ‘deek’ the goal posts.

In all of the twenty or more years attending Minnesota  High School  State Tournaments, I never saw a player who could out maneuver a defender as easily at this kid.   Herbie Brooks was a genius with the puck at the end of his hockey stick…..clever player who loved the game, a winner, who had a brain far more skilled than his legs.   HE WAS A WINNER by drive and  because of that brain!

(I think Herbie actually  majored in psychology while at the University of Minnesota, back then when the University really meant something in learnings.   This Herbie was focused that 1979-1980!)

I was not surprised that Herbie decided to play the Olympic Soviet team  (for practice) a couple weeks before the Olympic games began, losing 10-3,  at Madison Square Garden!   I was not surprised he’d work the blood out of his Olympic team players whether they liked it or not, during every practice until the Olympic competitions began.  I was not at all surprised that his superbly-coached team had managed to remain  undefeated by the time they had to play the Soviets.

Herbie was in charge!

Minnesota boy high school players in the 1980s were becoming more spoiled in their athletic surroundings than in the years gone by.  They didn’t have to play critical outdoor games in minus 15 degree temperatures any more……such as a critical  outdoor game  I watched in Roseau when the team  played St. Paul Johnson one January.

Mark Johnson blood came from Minnesota.   I knew his dad, Bob Johnson quite well.  ….a First Class Guy, if there ever was one!  He was a star coach at Minneapolis Roosevelt….and a ‘side kick’ of mine when we took graduate school classes together in the College of Education at the University of Minnesota before he came to coach hockey at the University of Wisconsin.

Herbie Brooks was a  genius coaching at that level at  that time to that Olympic victory that year, AD 1980!  It was made to be by our Creator!  His young, rather spoiled youthful team was tortured into mental, physical strength into  resolution and  endurance throughout those many  months of practice leading up to that Miracle on Ice……Team USA  was a much stronger, better balanced USA hockey team playing the Soviets during the last fifteen minutes than the first 45!   Take a look below during that third period following the Eruzione go-ahead  goal with ten minutes left!







That NewMan in Washington Again!



Popular California Congressional Twit, Adam Schiff Shifts!! Now Attacks FBI; Law Enforcement


by Scott Johnson at PowerLine:

The Democrats’ media adjunct amplified a key Democratic talking point over the past two weeks. According to the Democrats and their media friends, one is not to criticize the bad actions of anyone in the FBI or other such agencies. If you do, you’re trashing law enforcement. Retroactive application of this rule to the depredations of President Obama and the Obama administration is prohibited. Mollie Hemingway collected a few exhibits of the current media campaign attacking Republicans on this ground in this Federalist column.

Now the shifty Adam Schiff has gone to war on law enforcement in the formerly disapproved fashion. It is not reported this way in Kyle Cheney’s Politico article “Schiff complains FBI, Justice Department making too many demands on Russia memo,” but there it is. Schiff of course also attributes fault to President Trump, at whose behest the FBI and Department of Justice are said to be acting. It’s a twofer! For some reason, Schiff’s shocking disparagement of law enforcement goes unmentioned.


Dubya on the Circuit Selling Dubya Brain Matter

Dubya’s selling the idea that two to tens of millions of illegal foreigners have a United Nation’s right to settle in their nests as soon as possible here in ……in……on Dubya land in Texas?

NOT QUITE! THEY’LL CROWD AND INCREASE  VIOLENCE IN  AN AMERICA FAR AWAY WHERE HONEST, LEGAL AMERICANS STRUGGLE TO  LIVE AND PROSPER IN OBAMALAND.   Dreamy Dubya hasn’t thought that far into Earth’s day to look at a book beyond its cover.   Dubya is one of several  well meaning  Bushes….none of them  evil minded  allies  of  current-day college-trained  fascists, such as the black racist Obamaling,  Barack the trained America Hater from Hawaii!

None of the Bushes as wealthy as they all are/were, including New Jersey’s Prescott Bush of my young life memory,  ever preached and plotted to cripple America as a religion taught to Barack Hussein Obama by black racist preacher, Jeremiah Wright of  Obama’s Chicago.

It is possible   none of the known Bushes have ever inappropriately mouthed evil against either good or evil,   not  even for a minute or two, certainly when compared the natural EVIL MINDED AND MOUTHED CHAMPIONS OF AMERICAN POLITICAL HISTORY, HILLARY CLINTON,  BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA!

How about the read about Dubya below?


Poor Dubya, out on the big-dollar lecture circuit, and absolutely nothing to say

by Monica Showalter   at American Thinker:

..”The Associated Press is trying to make hay out of a non-issue, highlighting that former President George W. Bush is somehow at odds with the Trump administration over the issue of Russian election meddling.

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Former President George W. Bush said on Thursday that “there’s pretty clear evidence that the Russians meddled” in the 2016 American presidential election, forcefully rebutting fellow Republican Donald Trump’s denials of Moscow trying to affect the vote.

While never mentioning President Trump by name, Bush appeared to be pushing back on Trump’s attempts to have warmer relations with Russia, as well as his comments on immigration.

Actually, none of this describes reality. Did he really forcefully push? AP gave no evidence of that in its story. Meanwhile, Trump, via his United Nations ambassador, Nikki Haley, and others, has condemned in downright overharsh terms the Russian electoral meddling problem. What’s more, relations with Russia are the frostiest they’ve ever been, as the full shutdown of the Russian consulates in San Francisco and elsewhere – as well as the word of my own Russian sources – would suggest. There’s no daylight on the issue, so score nothing on the ignorant and ideologically motivated Associated Press piece.

Actually, it sounds like the AP was trying to make news out of a lot of non-news. The subject at hand was George W. Bush’s speaking engagement in Abu Dhabi, which was put on by the Milken Institute. Though I suspect he was paid well to attend this event, which was dubbed ‘A Conversation with George W. Bush, 43rd President of the United States.‘ I couldn’t find any evidence of quid pro quo, the delayed bribery of high-paid speeches that made his father as well as Bill Clinton and Barack Obama so famous in their post-presidencies. The Milken Institute is reputable and so far as I can tell, there wasn’t any. The AP didn’t have any news there.

But there was real news in that event. It was how old and tired Dubya looked and how little he had to say. Milken obviously paid a lot for nothing, given that Bush had nothing new to say, except perhaps the knowledge that Bush hadn’t grown any in his post-presidency. Every single thing Bush said in fact was some trope he said earlier. Nothing revealed a scintilla of new thinking in him after the nightmare of the Obama years and the resulting ascent of President Trump. Nothing. Like the Bourbons, he’s learnt nothing and forgotten nothing.

“There’s pretty clear evidence that the Russians meddled,” Bush said at a talk in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. “Whether they affected the outcome is another question.”

File under Captain Obvious.

Speaking of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Bush called him “zero-sum.”

“He’s got a chip on his shoulder,” Bush said of Putin. “The reason he does is because of the demise of the Soviet Union troubles him. Therefore, much of his moves (are) to regain Soviet hegemony.”

Something that came out decades ago when Putin lamented the demise of the Soviet Union. No perspective on what Putin (who suppressed any celebration of the 1917 Russian revolution) might think today. Bush wouldn’t have any idea about it.

Putin “is pushing, constantly pushing, probing weaknesses,” the former president said. “That’s why NATO is very important.”

The old Rumsfeld trop about weakness provocative, plus the unquestioning loyalty to multilateral institutions, never mind that most of NATO never bothers fulfilling the money aspect of its obligations. Too easy to dump them on us. More history passing Bush by.

Bush also criticized Trump’s decision to scrap a program implemented by former President Barack Obama’s administration that allows young immigrants living in the U.S. illegally who were brought here as children to remain in America.

“America’s their home,” the 43rd American president said. “They’ve got to get it fixed.”

Got to get it fixed? Fix what? The broken law, the broken border, or the problems it’s created for those who fail to follow the law? Remember how Bush couldn’t articulate his views and as a result got nothing done?

Bush also criticized Trump’s decision to scrap a program implemented by former President Barack Obama’s administration that allows young immigrants living in the U.S. illegally who were brought here as children to remain in America.

“America’s their home,” the 43rd American president said. “They’ve got to get it fixed.”

Bush acknowledged that he tried to overhaul America’s “broken” immigration system, but failed.

“There are people willing to do jobs that Americans won’t do,” he said. “Americans don’t want to pick cotton at 105 degrees (Fahrenheit), but there are people who want put food on their family’s tables and are willing to do that. We ought to say thank you and welcome them.”

Absolutely mummified view of illegals, romantically imagining they are all lettuce pickers who want to put food on their tables. Does he know about the people in factories who displace low-wage African Americans? The many-degreed DREAMers who get free rides through college while American kids carry tens of thousands in debt? Does he mean the charmers who murdered Kate Steinle and now the Indiana Colts football player, continuously coming back after deportation? Does he even know that the proposed reforms on the table all include provisions for the agricultural workers, whose work indeed is valuable? If every illegal were a lettuce picker, we would not see the mass opposition we now see to illegal immigration and an unguarded border. But all of that is too complext for Dubya, who is old, tired and out of ideas.

He’s just busy collecting speaker fees, and saying nothing…..”




I met Dennis Prager four or five days before our  2004 Presidential election, GWBush verses JFK…the crooked sleaze, the corrupt, dishonest Massachusetts John F. Kerry adult boy married to the Heinz Tomato Sauce multimillion dollar world.   A close friend of mine, quiet, intelligent and alert, successful classical artist, Steve Levin had been a Prager companion via radio  while painting portraits and settings for some time.  He failed to share his conservatism with me.   Obama’s fascisms hadn’t been stirred  from the White House yet.

Tomato sauce JFK man became popular advertising his phony Hollywood-adorned movie scenes of his staged heroism in VietNam used dishonestly by the fascist left of that day to make America weaker again.   He skillfully reeked his evil to become a U.S. Senator from Massachusetts, and built upon this evil when he joined the leftist stars of the American Barack Hussein Obama gang becoming Secretary of State.

Politically, I had become “liberal” of the day having graduated from college where I toyed with  a number of undergraduate and graduate degrees dealing with Geography, Russian, and Horticulture.

I was either born or programmed to be a loner.  Being old enough  now, and trained to be truthful (OR ELSE!)  by my Lutheran Church when a child, or until my 13th birthday by my natively bright, hugely popular ( but hysterical) Germanic mother who joined the adult world after graduating grade school at age 13 in 1919, from  Emanuel German Lutheran Church of the German West Side St. Paul, Minnesota.   My popular, liked by everybody who knew him, dad worked at his drug store 60 plus hours a week and played competitive summer softball twice a week until he was 55 “come hell or high water”.

As long as I can remember, I have lived alone….and despite difficulties, enjoyed the style….for I was taught in a JudeoChristian religion  and  knowledge by devoted, wonderfully well educated public school old maids from kindergarten to college still in the decades of American life where KNOWLEDGE WAS TAUGHT “BECAUSE CONSUMING KNOWLEDGE WOULD LEAD US TO  BECOME CLOSER TO THE GOODNESS OF GOD, FOR GOD KNOWS ALL THINGS……the good and evil.

I also learned  in my  freshman   PUBLIC high school English class  the following  beautiful words of  art with soul:  THERE IS NEITHER GOOD NOR BAD.  ONLY THINKING MAKES IT SO!   I have never forgotten that TRUTH THROUGH POETRY from that day on!

In Church I had to memorize  the Psalms verse,  “As for Man, his days are as grass.  As the Lily of the Field, so he flourisheth.  And the Wind passeth over it,  and it is Gone….and the Place Thereof Shall Know it no More!”

Death was quite common among families during the 1930 and 1940  depression and war years of my life.  All four of my  grandparents, three uncles, a cousin and an aunt died before I was twelve.

The more a human male animal  learns, the more he  loves learning…..It is a drug….for good and, as a truth of life, sometimes not so good!

I am a Dennis Prager fan…..more than that, I love the religious Dennis for the  preacher he has become…..the preaching from my earlier American generation, the Truth I was taught in both Church and public school that one would become closer to God through knowledge by seeking  Truth by absorbing knowledge!





The Genius of Donald J. Trump and Victor D. Hanson!
