A Vulgarian in Our Midst

Much is being made of Donald Trump dropping the F-bomb during a recent campaign rally.  Truth be told, it was just the latest in a string of 'orofice' oriented words used since last year, when ‘The Donald’ read the pulse of the nation and that pulse was beating hard and fast. 

However, establishment wallflowers on both sides of the isle took to their soap boxes to complain that ‘The Donald’ was not qualified to be president, as he did not act ‘presidential’.  And that was back in the good old days when Trump was still saying “shit, ass and piss”.  He has since upped his game.

As the son of a logger and grandson of a farmer, I don’t want to go out on a limb, but I have been around long enough to know that any number of our past leaders have uttered far worse than the Donald. 

Some have said worse during ‘off the record’ conversations; some have said worse during golf outings; some have said worse while whispering to Obama at a podium; some have said worse during spontaneous outbursts on controversial subjects and some have said worse, just before they charged the enemy for destruction.   And that would not include Nixon during Watergate or Lyndon Johnson, when he wasn’t getting his way.

As to why Trump chose key moments to blast out his alleged profanity, Dumbplumber would suggest there are no better moments to express the anger of the citizens for:  $20 trillion in debt ($9 trillion in the last 7 years), 90 million out of the workforce (while being told we are at 5% unemployment); highest number of people on disability and unemployment in history; highest number on food stamps in history; we are rapidly moving to disarm our military and our citizens, (while actively engaged in arming our enemies); we are throwing open our borders to undocumented welfare recipients, the diseased, the known and unknown criminals; meanwhile we are being told that we can no longer sustain Social Security and Medicare, while we give billions to illegal aliens in healthcare; we are exporting our jobs and technology companies to foreign countries, while importing low wage workers and terrorists from third world countries; we are treating our allies like enemies and our enemies like allies;  and we are taxing the be-Jesus out of our citizens to pay for it all. 

Yes, my friends not only do I applaud Trump and his Vulgarian speech, I condemn the rest of the Republican field for not acting the same way.  America is well beyond the moment of protecting the ‘snowflakes’ of our country and has descended into a near revolutionary posture.  And if you don’t want to hear curse words, you might not want to be anywhere near a revolution.  Vulgar language is meant to wake up the audience, not lull it into a false sense of security, when the roof is about to cave in. 

Perhaps the country missed the riots in Ferguson, Mo., the union brawls at the Tea Party events or the lawless takeover of the Madison, Wis. Statehouse in 2014 (with few or no arrests of the Leftist thugs).  Despite the calls for civility, these were not Prayer Breakfast events.  These were folks trying to take over government to their own ends.  And I might add that no amount of civil discourse was going to stop their agenda.  So it might be noted that one civilian take-over of a government facility (the Malheur Wildlife building in Burns, Ore.) got one patriotic member assassinated, while the rest of the nation's Leftists plot more events.

And as a parting thought, I would like to remind everyone that civil discourse, polite discussion, cordial consideration and diplomatic deliberation has gotten us precisely where we are today.
So please don’t further insult my intelligence when you attempt to play the ‘Stupid Card’ of civil sensibilities and political correctness.

And BTW, here's Harry Truman's response to General MacArthur, when asked what "political correctness" was:

                  To: H S Truman
                  From: D A MacArthur and C H Nimitz
                      Wilco Sir, but both Chester and I are somewhat confused, exactly what does the term politically correct mean?
                  (4) Washington , D C
                  2120-September 1, 1945
                  To: D A MacArthur/C H Nimitz
                  From: H S Truman 
                      Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end!
