Trump's Vulgarity

Certain "conservatives" have bemoaned Donald Trump's vulgarity. I've seen opinion column after opinion column on that topic.

Other conservatives don't give a damn. In their view, Donald Trump is telling it like it is. I'm a member of that particular school of thought.

Recently, Adrienne of Adrienne's Corner made this comment at my site:
I don't accept the supposition that Donald Trump is vulgar. Speaking truth is not vulgar. Love of country will never be vulgar. Trump recognizes there's a real problem in this country and has proposed ways to start down another path.

Vulgar is forcefully taking money from people in the form of confiscatory taxes and giving it to other countries, institutions, and people. Vulgar is defending a woman's right to slaughter her child in the womb. Vulgar is being obsessed with who uses what bathroom. Vulgar is trying to convince me that two men or two woman having sex is perfectly normal. Vulgar is the quasi intellectuals who are forever telling us little people how stupid we are.

Exactly how have these "conservative" politicians done anything to stem the tide of the "long march through our institutions?"

I don't want a candidate who waves his Bible about and declares his creds as a Christian. I want a candidate who allows me to wave my Bible about without fear of reprisal.

She makes a good case.

The reality that Donald Trump is ok with Transgender men using women's bathrooms must be acknowledged. The reality that is a pro-gay rights must be acknowledged.

He is not a Traditional Conservative.

However, I don't know that we will ever hear Donald Trump attempt to make the case that Transgender people and gays are "normal".

As I have written from the beginning of my blogging life, I have no problem with gay people doing what they want. They have the right to live a good life and enjoy America just like anyone else. What they do may be considered sinful by many, but it is FAR LESS hurtful to society than is Gossip and there are gossips in every church pew.

But here's another view of mine on homosexuality, and by extension Transgenderism; It is NOT preferable. It is, at best, an example of a human being who is born (or raised) pre-disposed to be ill-suited for life as it is.

Gays can not produce children out of the union of their love (sex). Transgenders can not unity with their own bodies.

They are ill-suited. They have a malady of some sort.

And we should never act like this isn't true.

However, people ought to be free to choose whether to put the time and effort into overcoming their malady, or simply choosing to learn to live with it.

In the case of homosexuality, I have observed that it is probably almost always best to just learn to live with it.

Very few gay people learn to become straight and be happy with it.

That's true from observation. If another person disagrees, well, then ok, but I think you need to think about whether you are trying to make evidence fit your psychological theory.

I am opposed to Transgenders having access to non-biological bathrooms. But I can deal with Trannies more easily than I can deal with a dying economy and Islamomania.

I agree. And that is why I support Trump.

Pasto,
It is true that Trump is not a Traditional Conservative.

It is also true, in my view, that Traditional Conservatives have let us down.

They have not just let us down. They have blatantly lied to us, and expected that they were entitled to our continuing to believe them because they have "authority".

There is no such thing as a True Conservative in the modern American political scene.

To quote Newt Gingrich - "Trump is not a conservative. he is a an ally to conservatives." AKA, France will never be America but we hold similar values. They are allies.....at least up to this point.

I think one "Conservative" criticism of Trump which is close to being on the money is that he is not intellectually principled. He goes by gut instinct, and too often this leads him to make asinine statements that are totalitarian in nature.

Sometimes his feelings cause him to make sweeping statements about specific moral issues that, were he to be challenged, I believe we would find that he is closer to a true Conservative than most any of the "Conservatives" in the Republican Party.

I think - and I could be wrong, and if I am I will regret it - that Trump, once he is in office, will surround himself with those who he trust by gut instinct and I trust his gut instinct, in general. And I think those people he surrounds himself with will explain the implications of some of his sweeping generalizations, and I believe he will move more to the side of traditional Conservatism, because that's what I think he is.

Traditional Conservatism should not call for the elimination of women from the workforce, of Gays, etc. from public life. America is about Freedom. Anything that is not an interference with private property is fair game in America.

That is the Judeo-Christian way. God gave us Freedom to choose how we will live our lives. We can follow Him, or reject Him. He doesn't strike people down because they reject Him. The Bible makes it clear that God allows people to choose. It is only when they multiply abominations which lead to desolation that God strikes people down.

Essentially God allows people to do what they want until they create a virus among themselves which threatens to kill the whole body of humanity.

I think we are pretty far from that in America.

Christians, whose moral-thinking seems to veer sometimes to the totalitarian as well - may differ with me and they have the right to do so. But compare American society to the rest of the world, and I think we can be known by our fruits.

We are still the most charitable and creative nation on Earth. And this is because of Freedom.

I think Trump knows this and will follow reasonable advice on the intellectual foundations of this Free Society he so clearly cherishes.
