Democrats will literally say anything they can to be heard and the biased media outlets are promoting it.
Americas younger generation, the ones coming of voting age are being poisoned by the constant flow of liberal news and are being denied the right to make political decisions based off of knowledge not popularity.
One student has been turned from Democrat to Republican after learning the cold hard facts the old fashioned way, hands on learning. This student expresses how she originally became a liberal after watching the constant stream of leftist propaganda regularly on display. It wasn’t until deciding to volunteer for a a Republican campaign in order to discover personally what the hype was all about that she discovered something very eye opening. She was in fact NOT a liberal after all.
In 2015, you may have passed me on the streets with dark hair and a shirt that said, “Feel the Bern.” I was 17-years-old and had a passion to change the world. I still do.
But in October 2016, I traded in that t-shirt for one that said “Make America Great Again,” and quickly found myself looking at the past year wondering where I went wrong. How did I think I was doing something so powerful and courageous in a progressive movement that continues to disempower others?
In April 2015, Bernie Sanders announced his candidacy. At that time, I wasn’t willing to give the Republican candidates a chance. I was already interacting with the online world of feminism and was convinced the right was the ‘racist, Christian white guy’ who wanted to take away my rights. I paid attention to Senator Sanders and was quickly ‘swept off my feet.’
I was a proclaimed feminist who wanted to tear down the patriarchy, close the wage gap, and hate the “white men this country was built on.” I was active on social media and was frequently tweeting out hateful messages to Republican candidates, trying to categorize and protect every minority group in the nation. I had to fight the fight for them, because they didn’t know how to do it themselves. (In retrospect, how racist does that sound?). The white men were the oppressors and I was a victim.
During my fall 2016 semester as a first-time college student, I used the questioning and confusion I had to volunteer for a Republican campaign. What better way to form opinions yourself than to work on the team? I loved it.
Since my exile, escape, awakening, or whatever you may call it, the left has become nuttier. The tolerant left has been nothing but intolerant. They’ve excused their categorization, racism, and fight against individualism by saying that the conservative movement is the one taking everything away. In reality, the conservative movement is giving power. We’re fighting for school choice. We are fighting to get the government out of your personal life. We are fighting for immigrants to have the chance to come from nothing and become something in the nation founded on freedom.
