I did not write this post. A friend of mine emailed it to me. He didn’t write it either, but he thought it might resonate with me. It did, so I thought I’d share it.
It’s an open letter to Trump supporters signed by someone named “Craig T.” I have no idea who that is. But here is what he wrote:
Hey Trump supporters! Let’s get real for a minute.
You think I take pleasure in watching the Trump Presidency crumble in slow motion right before our eyes.
I don’t take any pleasure in it.
You think I’m giddy about the prospect of Trump, Trump Jr., Manafort, Flynn, Kushner, and the whole Trump Cartel facing criminal indictment.
I’m not giddy.
I’m extremely disappointed in you.
This is a stain on America. An indictment of ALL of us.
You see, I tried to warn you that your Pavlovian hatred of Hillary and your utter disgust at the very idea of a black man sitting in the Oval Office for eight years was detrimental to all of us.
But you kept lying about emails and birth certificates until you convinced yourself that the lies were true.
And then when a dirtbag charlatan con artist stood before you, every word spewing from his mouth a demonstrable lie, you overlooked it.
You embraced the lies because he promised you that he would hurt the people that you hate.
And the only thing that really got hurt was the reputation of the nation that I love.
Your intense, paralyzing hatred has impaired your judgement and endangered the nation. Yet you still defend him.
Can’t you see what you’ve become? Can’t you see what you’ve done?
You’re demanding an end to an investigation that you claim is fake. If it’s fake, then it seems like you’d want it to continue to clear him of all charges.
The only reason why you could possibly want it to end, is because you’re afraid of what it will reveal.
You tried to screw liberals and in the process, you screwed the entire nation. You’re like a political suicide bomber, detonating your device in the public square, not caring that you will kill yourself too.
But hey, as long as you hurt the people you hate, right?
Do you realize how insane your philosophy is? Do you understand how utterly detached from humanity you must be to do what you’re doing?
Think about it. Seriously! Think about this. You have taken the word of a former KGB agent and dictator of Russia over the words of your own intelligence agencies, the very people who have taken an oath to defend you against people like Putin.
Can’t you see how utterly treasonous that is?
What has the conservative machine done to you over the last 30 years that overnight, your enemies have become your allies and your allies, your enemies?
We warned you long before now that Trump was going down. And it appears that your hatred is going to lead you to go down with him, taking America’s reputation in the world with you.
But hey, at least you hurt a lot of people that you hate in the process, right?
