It’s time to drain the swamp

The May 14 BND Opinion pages again featured Lee Pitzer and Leonard Pitts vilifying their fellow Americans for electing Donald Trump. Two leftist malcontents reciting their vicious progressive mantra on Mother’s Day, protesting the Constitutional rights of American citizens including 30 million women who voted for the president.

Pitzer opines that recent French elections show maturity and intelligence for electing an open border socialist as president. Stating the relaxed French don’t feel the need for success, they voted intelligently for “globalization,” a progressive socialist conspiracy rife with Islamic terrorism. Pitzer refers to Trump voters as “stupid and foolish” for choosing American sovereignty, prosperity and freedom.

Competing with Al Sharpton for race baiter awards, Pitts writes: “White people riot by voting” amplifying the election night venom of communist Van Jones calling the results “white lash.” By Pitts’ mindset, the election was a racial event, that whites elected Donald Trump because they hate minorities. Calling Trump “nincompoop,” “bigot” and “Nazi,” Pitts ignores Barack Obama’s war on law enforcement, open borders and illegal sanctuary cities that put American lives at risk. He is silent on the plight of minorities who still suffer as serfs beholden to the Democrat Party that gave birth to the Ku Klux Klan.

The 2016 election took federal executive power away from the enemies of freedom. However, their deep state infestation of federal bureaucracies provides cover as they wage war against the president and his Cabinet. Writers like Pitzer and Pitts mirror this toxic mentality and intent. It’s time to drain the swamp.
