As a Christian and constitutional conservative, the election was lost when Donald Trump became the Republican nominee. The Bible, and secondly the Constitution, are the bedrock documents of my worldview. Sadly, both documents lost this election. Since then, I’ve been stuck trying to insert a round peg in a square hole; which, I must say has been quite frustrating.
I believe it was Mark Levin who coined the term, “clapping seals” to describe Trump supporters. It can be equally applied to clueless liberal Hillary supporters. Either way, it’s a great term to describe the warring factions we now find ourselves stuck between.
The clapping seals in the right circus ring are in favor of Trump. They are so stuck in their disgust for liberals and the Republican establishment, that they decided to throw their support behind a candidate who seems not to support any of our bedrock documents. Remember “two” Corinthians? When have you heard Trump talk about the Constitution? What about character? During Bill Clinton’s Presidency, they told us that character mattered. I guess it only matters when it’s Democrat character.
The clapping seals on the right blindly follow Trump’s fine sounding words and his propaganda machines like the Drudge Report and Breitbart.
Don’t get me wrong, their anger at liberals and the establishment is justified. Let us not forget, if Republican politicians would of spent their time fighting liberals, instead of conservatives, we wouldn’t have a Trump. Either way, the Trump clapping seals have allowed themselves to be driven by anger and not by principle. They have thrown the baby out with the bath water. They sound no different, and are just as hypocritical, as rabid Obama supporters.
In the left circus ring, we have the Hillary, and very sad and bitter, Bernie clapping seals. These people are so full of hate for Republicans and conservatives, that they ignore any evil on their side, so long as they take someone down on the right.
Trump says something sexually repugnant, and they get all frothy in the mouth and righteously indignant. Yet, will defend Hillary’s hubby for not just saying something sexually repugnant, but someone who actually took action against women.
These same people speak grandly about women’s rights, but happily defend Hillary as she ignores her husband’s sexual deviancy. She not only defended Bill, but actively worked to destroy the reputations of his victims.
Yet Hillary’s clapping seals slap their fins together, barking as loud as they can, spouting their newly fed propaganda from the Huffington Post, New York Times, and other mainstream media outlets. They lick-up false media stories like a kitten eagerly drinking milk from a bowl.
If you’re some like me, who sincerely cherishes God’s word and the Constitution, what do we do? We’re now stuck between the circus rings, watching the seals bark in almighty glory to their left and right wing masters.
On Thursday, I’ll answer that question when I post part 2.
