Donald Trump NH Speech is a Game Changer

Don­ald Trump spoke today at St. Anselm col­lege in Goff­s­town NH today, because it is Mon­day and I have my sched­uled Eucharis­tic Ado­ra­tion com­bined with the need to sleep I was not able to go there to cover Mr. Trump in per­son to ask Mr. Trump ques­tions after his speech but watch­ing the speech on CNN.

As a gen­eral rule a sin­gle speech isn’t a game changer, but this speech was because it artic­u­lated truths that are self evi­dent, directly named the foe, Rad­i­cal Islamic ter­ror and called them out for what they are:

He talked about the fruits of denial from folks like Hillary I am not going to demo­nize and dem­a­gogue and declare war on an entire reli­gion Clinton

When it comes to rad­i­cal islamic ter­ror igno­rance is not bliss, it’s deadly”

and said those days were over

The days of deadly igno­rance will end.”

Although in fair­ness “igno­rance” is likely the wrong word, “denial” would to my mind be more accurate

The sin­gle biggest game change how­ever in this speech was the acknowl­edge­ment that the Mus­lim com­mu­nity in the US has to make up its mind to work with law enforcement:

“The Mus­lims have to work with us, they know what’s going on”

That is the spike of the foot­ball, instead of putting the onus on Amer­i­cans to play nice, the onus is put on Mus­lim Amer­i­cans to decide what side they’re on and act accordingly.

I guar­an­tee you mil­lions of Amer­i­cans hear­ing those words were nod­ding their heads.

If there is one thing in Trump’s speech that I dis­agreed with, it’s was this line:

“This pres­i­dent doesn’t know what he’s doing”

I dis­agree I think the pres­i­dent knows exactly what he is doing as to the why, that’s a great question.

I think this speech which clearly states aloud what a lot of peo­ple are think­ing. Curt Ander­son is spot on

What will the effect of this speech be, some­thing like this:

Although I voted for Hillary in the pri­mary, I now cringe inwardly with shame and embar­rass­ment at hav­ing done so, and in Novem­ber I will vote for Trump.

Why? Yes, I know that Trump is an a**hole, Trump is a clown, Trump is a motor­mouth buf­foon. You don’t have to con­vince me of that. But he’s also the only per­son say­ing any­thing about putting the brakes on Islamic extrem­ism, and in light of what hap­pened last night in Orlando, sud­denly that is the only issue that really mat­ters when it comes to the health, well-​being and safety of the queer com­mu­nity.

Now in fair­ness that was writ­ten before the Trump speech but I sus­pect a lot of peo­ple in the Gay com­mu­nity are think­ing the same, but don’t dare say it aloud:

And you know what makes me angrier still? The fact that I have to hide my iden­tity and remain anony­mous in writ­ing this essay. If I outed myself as a Trump sup­porter, I would be harassed and doxxed and shunned by every­one I know and by the Twit­ter lynch mobs which up until yes­ter­day I myself led.

This is the day that Don­ald Trump wins the pres­i­den­tial elec­tion, that’s why CNN et/​al will be focus­ing on his feud with the Wash­ing­ton Post.

Clos­ing thought, if you want to know why the GOP lost in 2012 & 2008, here it is:

A source who works closely with the Trump cam­paign, granted anonymity in order to speak freely to NBC News, said after Sunday’s attack that the party had asked the can­di­date to offer con­do­lences and then to stay silent.

My God these peo­ple are clueless

Donald Trump spoke today at St. Anselm college in Goffstown NH today, because it is Monday and I have my scheduled Eucharistic Adoration combined with the need to sleep I was not able to go there to cover Mr. Trump in person to ask Mr. Trump questions after his speech but watching the speech on CNN.

As a general rule a single speech isn’t a game changer, but this speech was because it articulated truths that are self evident, directly named the foe, Radical Islamic terror and called them out for what they are:

He talked about the fruits of denial from folks like Hillary I am not going to demonize and demagogue and declare war on an entire religion Clinton

“When it comes to radical islamic terror ignorance is not bliss, it’s deadly”

and said those days were over

“The days of deadly ignorance will end.”

Although in fairness “ignorance” is likely the wrong word, “denial” would to my mind be more accurate

The single biggest game change however in this speech was the acknowledgement that the Muslim community in the US has to make up its mind to work with law enforcement:

“The Muslims have to work with us, they know what’s going on”

That is the spike of the football, instead of putting the onus on Americans to play nice, the onus is put on Muslim Americans to decide what side they’re on and act accordingly.

I guarantee you millions of Americans hearing those words were nodding their heads.

If there is one thing in Trump’s speech that I disagreed with, it’s was this line:

“This president doesn’t know what he’s doing”

I disagree I think the president knows exactly what he is doing as to the why, that’s a great question.

I think this speech which clearly states aloud what a lot of people are thinking. Curt Anderson is spot on

What will the effect of this speech be, something like this:

Although I voted for Hillary in the primary, I now cringe inwardly with shame and embarrassment at having done so, and in November I will vote for Trump.

Why? Yes, I know that Trump is an a**hole, Trump is a clown, Trump is a motormouth buffoon. You don’t have to convince me of that. But he’s also the only person saying anything about putting the brakes on Islamic extremism, and in light of what happened last night in Orlando, suddenly that is the only issue that really matters when it comes to the health, well-being and safety of the queer community.

Now in fairness that was written before the Trump speech but I suspect a lot of people in the Gay community are thinking the same, but don’t dare say it aloud:

And you know what makes me angrier still? The fact that I have to hide my identity and remain anonymous in writing this essay. If I outed myself as a Trump supporter, I would be harassed and doxxed and shunned by everyone I know and by the Twitter lynch mobs which up until yesterday I myself led.

This is the day that Donald Trump wins the presidential election, that’s why CNN et/al will be focusing on his feud with the Washington Post.

Closing thought, if you want to know why the GOP lost in 2012 & 2008, here it is:

A source who works closely with the Trump campaign, granted anonymity in order to speak freely to NBC News, said after Sunday’s attack that the party had asked the candidate to offer condolences and then to stay silent.

My God these people are clueless
