Letter: Time for unity was four years ago



I don’t understand the outrage concerning Father Alexis Miller’s statement regarding “Joe Biden is not my President.” Just a short four years ago, it seems like everyone was shouting “Donald Trump is not my President” from the rooftops, often to wide and thunderous acclaim.

Memories are short but the internet is forever.

Everything that has been said or done against Trump or his supporters has now set the precedent for how one is expected and allowed to behave following an election where the “wrong candidate” wins.

There is plenty of evidence that the election was manipulated by Facebook, Twitter, Google and the mainstream press if we will just take our blinders off. Facebook and Twitter even admitted to Congress that they suppressed the Hunter Biden story, but they were doing it for our own good.

Trump supporters won’t be screaming at the sky, because that would be silly. We won’t be parading around in pink hats, because that would be even sillier. Trump supporters won’t be rioting or looting because we have jobs and responsibilities and just don’t have time for that.

What Trump supporters will be doing is this: We will hug our families. We will go to church. We will drive our cars and trucks. We will do our jobs. We will love our neighbors. We will love our country and we will live our lives.

Donald Trump didn’t teach us how to do these things, but he did teach us something about style, having a spine and standing up for what we believe in.

Don’t tell us that now is the time for unity. The time for unity was four years ago.

Still no evidence of massive voter fraud. If a person is determined to be a victim, then reality will be bent to fit the narrative. It's insulting to suggest Facebook, Twitter, or the dreaded "media" can over-ride what I and millions others have seen and heard with our own eyes and ears the past 4 years. Perhaps you missed the armed protests at state capitols in various states, including blocking roads and hospital entrances.

By all means continue the lies and hate though, since in the "new" Christianity, it's important to "keep score" and overlook everything except abortion and homosexuality.

Donald trump was never accepted by half of this country because he refused to work with anyone that opposed his views. The opposition was immediately labeled as frauds or guilty of spreading fake news. In Donald trump's world you were with him or against him. This is why we didn't unify behind him - there was no space for us. Now he has lost; he is taking a wrecking ball to our democracy by sowing doubt in the same process that brought him to power.
