Dr. Karlyn Borysenko is a 20-year Democrat and says she would never vote for Trump.
However, she decided to attend a Trump rally just to see what the “other” side was like and what she found is not going to make her fellow Democrats very happy.
In a single day, all of her dispersions, characterizations, and opinions about Trump supporters were completely shattered.
Just Regular People
Ever since Hillary Clinton used the word “deplorables,” Trump supporters have been characterized as racists, bigots, anti-Semites, neo-Nazis, etc.
The fact of the matter is that most of us are just regular working people who are frustrated with the system.
Sure there are extremists, but we do not embrace them, just as the left should not embrace radicals supporting its candidates.
When Dr. Borysenko went to a Trump rally, her friends told her to be careful.
They told her they were in fear for her safety, that they thought Trump supporters were going to harass her… but none of that happened.
She found what we already know… we are just normal people that believe in the Trump presidency.
The most important thing she realized is that unless Democrats get a big wakeup call, her party is “not ready for 2020.”
The Hatred on the Left
In addition to that interview on Fox & Friends, Dr. Borysenko wrote a piece that was published on Medium.
The biggest thing that I took from it, other than her realization that we are not the thugs the media makes us out to be, is that there is a massive wave of anger and hate that is destroying liberals right now.
In her article, she stated, “Many things were not right about the hatred, and witnessing the vitriol coming from those I had aligned myself with politically was a massive wake-up call.”
Here is the most telling section of her article…
You see, I was one of those Democrats who considered anyone who voted for Trump a racist. I thought they were horrible (yes, even deplorable) and worked very hard to eliminate their voices from my spaces by unfriending or blocking people who spoke about their support of him, however minor their comments. I watched a lot of MSNBC, was convinced that everything he had done was horrible, that he hated anyone who wasn’t a straight white man, and that he had no redeeming qualities.
But when I witnessed the amount of hate coming from the left in this small, niche knitting community, I started to question everything. I started making a proactive effort to break my echo chamber by listening to voices I thought I would disagree with. I wanted to understand their perspective, believing it would confirm that they were filled with hate for anyone who wasn’t like them.
That turned out not to be the case. The more voices outside the left that I listened to, the more I realized that these were not bad people. They were not racists, nazis, or white supremacists. We had differences of opinions on social and economic issues, but a difference of opinion does not make your opponent inherently evil. And they could justify their opinions using arguments, rather than the shouting and ranting I saw coming from my side of the aisle.
After spending just one day with Trump supporters, what is her assessment?
“Democrats have an ass-kicking coming to them in November, and I think most of them will be utterly shocked when it happens.”
That is just one person who now realizes how much the media is tainting this election and how we are portrayed but the hate of the left is finally starting to get out.
The media cannot continue to ignore the attacks against Trump supporters and the threats people like congressional candidate John Dennis received in San Francisco.
The left is losing this battle, and when that happens, they will have nobody but themselves to blame.
