Why are conservatives against an investigation of Donald Trump's Russian ties?

8. Why are they so against an investigation into Russian ties with Donald Trump?

I’ll be honest. I don’t know a whole lot about the supposed ties between Russia and Donald Trump. The little I do know, I’ve blown off as hysteria from the Left. Did he have business dealings with Russia? I assume he did; he had business dealings all over the world. Will that, or did that, have an effect on how he deals with some of those countries now? Maybe. Maybe not. It depends on whether he uses them for personal gain or U.S. gain. Did they help him get elected? Maybe. Did he collude with them to do it? I seriously doubt it.

The thing I find infuriating is the Left’s focus on this, and the lack of interest–an understatement–in Hillary Clinton’s ties with Russia. Yes, I’m talking about the Uranium deal that she approved while head of the State Department, while taking millions in donations through the Clinton Foundation, which by the way, shut down shortly after her failed Presidential bid. Here are a couple of recent articles covering the details:

Sticking with the Hillary Clinton narrative, let’s talk about WikiLeaks. Russia is/was being blamed for the hacks. WikiLeaks says Russia was not involved. The evidence for Russia’s involvement was, at the time, dubious, and might I add, convenient. It steered people away from the content of the emails, and the Mainstream Media was more than happy to drive. If WikiLeaks had published hacked emails from Donald Trump the media would have plastered them across the front page of every newspaper and news site across the globe regardless of the source. They would have done it with glee. They wouldn’t have cared if Russia had interfered. I found it hard to take the Russian hacking seriously when it felt like a diversion from the contents of the emails.

What I am against is the hypocritical screaming from the Left regarding Trump and the silence regarding Clinton.

In the end, am I against an investigation? Not necessarily. If there is evidence–REAL evidence–of Russian interference, than yes, there should be an investigation. Meddling by any foreign government is unacceptable, but I suppose that could cut both ways. We need to not meddle in other countries politics as well.

Why do so many people say Trump isn’t racist?

Why do so many people say Trump isn't racist?

4. Why do so many people say Trump isn’t racist? Or say they voted for him despite that and feel ok with it?

First, as Hawkins said, I know of nothing that he has said or did that was racist. I know about the Mexican comment he made, but I don’t believe it was racist. It was hyperbole and it was effective at getting people’s attention. In case you haven’t noticed, Trump uses a LOT of hyperbole.

I’ve said this before, although I haven’t written it, but Trump is now taking the brunt of the anti-conservative impact because he’s become the figurehead of “racist” America. If Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, or Ted Cruz would have been the nominee and won, they would have been racist too. If you pay attention, 49.8% of Americans are racist; that’s everyone that voted for him, including me. But liberals think everything is racist and hateful: wanting a wall, protecting our borders, school choice, voter ID, standing against Affirmative Action, standing for traditional marriage, understanding that psychological disorders aren’t genders… Basically, opposing any idea held by liberals can get a person branded a racist.

If a liberal calls me a racist, based on their twisted definition, it actually makes me feel better about myself. Why? Because it confirms that I’m on the right side of morality. Because in the real, true definition of the word, I am not racist. I believe everyone should be treated the same regardless of their race, and no race is better than any other race.

How can I be okay voting for Donald Trump despite the fact that so many people think he’s racist? First, as I said, I don’t believe it. Second, liberals have screamed racist so much that it means nothing to me. Third, the alternative, Hillary Clinton, was worse:

Despite President Trump’s weaknesses, I’m glad I voted for him, and I’m pleased with his efforts so far.
