The problem there was that the Five Minute Hate was a ritual, not something people did spontaneously. Were you even paying attention when you read that book? Or did you just use the cliff notes?I am an adult who can think for myself instead of being a mindless sheep, though, and so ask questions as well as evaluate his performance as president separate from my opinions of him as a human. The first question I ask is "why do people hate him?" The answer to that comes easily. The rank and file as is represented in this thread hate him because they have been trained to hate him, as they are little more than programmable automatons doing the bidding of others. I am much reminded of 1984's five minutes of hate where people all assemble on command to vent their spleen as directed.
People hate Trump because he's an awful human being who has done an awful job.
Oh, noes, not "The Globalists".... are those Black UN Helicopters bothering you again?To know why he is really hated, though, one needs to look beyond those who have been trained to hate and examine the reasons the trainers have for hating him. That one is easy as well. Trump is an unabashed nationalist. He stands for our nation state, supports our sovereignty, and makes decisions based upon what is good for the American people. THAT is why he is hated, as the globalists who are manipulating the uneducated and unintelligent have THEIR agenda to protect.
Uh, guy, free trade is GOOD for the American people. It means we have access to goods and services we wouldn't otherwise have access to. To put it another way, I run a "Trade Deficit" with Walmart. But I get the value of the goods and services I buy from Walmart.
Trump has alienated our allies and sucked up to our enemies. He's instigated trade wars that have damaged our economy. (Yes, the economy was going into the shitter long before TRUMP PLAGUE showed up.) And of course, he's fucked up the response to Covid, 270,000 Americans are now dead, and you think, "Yeah, let's reward that guy with a second term even though a clear majority voted against him!!!"
