It’s difficult to imagine Trump winning with nothing but bad news, including 50 Republican defense experts saying he’d be “dangerous,” as if Hillary already hasn’t been? Or how about Republican Senators so dumb they don’t realize how damaging a Hillary administration would (will?) be?
But, not all Trump supporters are what our media constantly infers are “under educated hillbilly White men who just don’t get it…” No, many foreigners prefer Trump, too.
I have a couple of friends who are from Romania and Hungary, both are staunch Republicans. The Hungarian husband, Tony, calls me every once in a while, and says “But, Z, how can Americans vote for all these free give-aways when a thinking person knows this can’t go on? I left a country to get away from Socialism….don’t they see what happened in Venezuela recently? What’s going to happen to America?” I have other Eastern European friends, and family from other areas, who fled their countries to come here, the land of opportunity (not one ever took any type of welfare, by the way) and they MADE IT here. They’re upset and worried about their futures, the future of America.
Yesterday, I was having coffee with a friend when I noticed a couple was looking over at me when I mentioned the Armenian genocide in connection to something Donna and I were discussing. So, I asked “Are you Armenians?” They said they were and I said I was of Armenian extraction. We talked a little and then we moved our chairs a couple feet closer to them and the four of us chatted for at least an hour.
This couple came here thirty years ago from Iran, where their grandparents fled to during the genocide by Turkish Muslims on Armenian Christians (Armenia is the first country to make Christianity their national religion, by the way. Even when it was an “SSR,” Russia didn’t dare shut churches down there). They are highly educated in Iran.
The husband filled us in on the truth about the Shah’s leaving Iran, how beautiful Tehran was when he was the ruler, how sophisticated, how highly educated people were…no hijabs, no burkas….women were free and independent….They told us how Saddam wanted Khomeini dead and had a chance to kill him but didn’t (I found a book when Googling more information on this subject yesterday which postulates on how good that would have been, in hindsight), and a lot about ISLAM.
They have highly educated Muslim friends in Iran and here in Los Angeles who no more want Sharia Law than we do, and who read the koran ever day but actually argue with this guy about the ‘kill the infidels’ stuff. They deny that it’s in there! Please see the comments page of my post yesterday and read Bocopro’s comments….it’s IN THERE, MUSLIMS…trust us; IT IS IN THERE. Read my comments on WHY most Muslims don’t believe it’s there.
This Armenian couple wants Trump because they worked in SOCIAL WORK since they arrived here…issuing Medical to people, etc. They said they believe only 10% of the applications they’ve seen over the years actually deserve government entitlement like Medical…the rest is lying and hoping for freebies. They watch a lot of CNN because, like me, they want to know both sides and make their decisions wisely, more wisely than only watching one venue. (they laugh at CNN, as I do, too).
They want TRUMP because they feel he’d clamp down on this waste they see so often…….they want TRUMP because they believe Hillary is a liar and cheat. They want TRUMP because he’s tough and not naive as most Democrats are.
These people want TRUMP, but Republican ‘experts’ tell us not to vote for him.
I was impressed by their having no real pony in this race…although I’m sure they’re American citizens…..Not having been born here, they nevertheless love this country where they raised their children, where they worked, and where they see America is falling apart and needs anything BUT HILLARY CLINTON.
I wish you could have all met Onnig and Seta….I wish there were more like them. I wish there were more natural born Americans like them.
