The one-sided Left
There is a rant here by an atheist who objects to the alliance between Christians and Mr Trump. He seems to think that he as an atheist knows the business of Christians better than they do. The article is basically just one long fulmination but he does get around at one point to telling us what is wrong with Mr Trump. It is this paragrah:
"He's told transgender soldiers they can't serve in the military, he's ripped apart immigrant families through Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), he's put hundreds of thousands of DACA recipients in danger of being kicked out of the country, he's made it harder for poor people to receive adequate health care, etc."
At no point, however, does he offer any reasoning behind transgenders in the military being unwelcome nor does he mention that the immigrants concerned are illegally in the country and commit a lot of crime. And he does not consider that the current unaffordability of health care is mostly a result of Obamacare and its large deductibles.
Typically one-sided. Leftists couldn't make an honest argument if they tried. If he had been interested in mounting an honest argument he would have mentioned that military men generally dislike having sexual deviants among them on the grounds that it degrades unit cohesion and morale. So if they are to do well the jobs they are employed for, deviants should be excluded from their ranks.
He might also have considered that Obamacare is unsurvivable as it stands, which is why insurers are steadily pulling out of its exchanges. He might also mention that the Democrats have steadily resisted Mr. Trump's attempts to replace it with something more affordable.
One of the reasons why I read Leftist tracts is that I hope I might learn something from them. I rarely do. Mostly all I find is unreasoning hate. I strongly suspect that most Leftists are quite incapable of mounting a rational argument.
