There is one big, glaring inconsistency in much of the media's criticism of The Donald. Whether it is his 'divisiveness' or his 'bigotry' or 'misogyny' it ignores something very revealing about the critics themselves.
If, as so many news talking heads, high-profile entertainment celebrities, or media critics say, Trump represents everything that is repulsive about Republicans, why don't they pay any attention to the one opposition candidate that is the Antithesis of Trump?
If they really think Trump would be a catastrophe for America were he to become the Nation's leader, wouldn't it make sense to point to someone who would be a proper, more conciliatory and better qualified candidate, just to draw the contrast? If they really care about their country and the election process we use to chose our leaders, wouldn't it make sense to suggest the opposition might be better represented by someone who isn't The Donald?
To embrace the other side of the coin?
All you hear from Democrats is how bad every Republican is. They rip the leader of the polls, and then offer subtle digs about Bush, Rubio, and especially Cruz. Knowing they will face one of the Republicans in the fall campaign, if they think Trump is unelectable, and are more interested in returning a Democrat to the White House above all other considerations,from the standpoint of sheer self interest, they ought to be supporting Trump implicitly!
Trump is a target so big, how can the Democrats miss?
The question remains for all Americans, who is best suited to face the multifaceted crisis we face in our future? If we really want what is best for America, we should all be hoping for a contest of the best prepared candidates. Sort of 'The Apprentice' for the White House...
Trump is ridiculed for being the beneficiary of his Dad's wealth and position in New York. There is one candidate that, unlike Trump, is totally self made. Trump is said to be a racist, that he paints all Latinos as rapists and criminals. There is one candidate that, without a doubt, is no racist. Trump is chastised for his multiple marriages, his previous instances of infidelity. The other candidate that has had one, long-term marriage. Is highly educated and a proven innovator and leader in one of the most exclusive industries on Earth. Trump constantly attacks his opponents, belittles them, and uses profane terms that smack of sexism.The other candidate has never attacked anyone, whether it is a political competitor, or a media critic, or any other detractor.
In fact, this person has the most positive, inclusive and compassionate outlook of anyone who has been the subject of public political scrutiny in recent memory. If this candidate could be criticized for anything it is an uncanny ability to remain calm, some may say dispassionate, in the face of criticism. Some say he isn't tough enough. His quiet certitude, soft spoken clarity of purpose, and his indomitable faith in God, are his biggest weakness, I guess...
Both of these men are outsiders, so obviously most Liberals don't trust them, because Liberals view Government as God. In fact, the other reason many classic Liberals would never even give this Republican candidate the time of day, is precisely because he is a devout Christian (soft bigotry?). Whether they want to admit it or not, many people view devotion to a Higher Authority with suspicion. They consider religion a superstition, and an indicator that that person is intellectually deficient. Even if the person holds 67 honorary doctorate degrees, is a Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree and a world renown neurosurgeon.
Dr. Ben Carson, if we were to accept all of the criticism of Donald Trump as a disqualifier for the position of Leader of the Free World, is by default, far and away the only candidate that exemplifies the personality traits, the advanced education, incredible personal accomplishments, and the wide demographic support that critics suggest are necessary to become the next President.
But as far as the media, Hollywood, and all of those screaming about Trump are concerned, Dr. Carson is nowhere to be seen. They don't talk about him, they don't trash him, or take him seriously.
Why? Is it precisely because he is a dreaded Republican and just might become the next Black President?
