ver the past couple of days on Social Media I’ve been ganged-up on and called a misogynist, a racist, and a sexist because I did not, and do not, support Senator Kamala Harris in her bid for Vice President of the United States of America.

I do not like the criminal prosecution record she had when she was the district attorney of San Francisco. I do not like her liberal ideology, I do not like that she wants to raise taxes and take away our 2nd amendment rights. The list can go on, but to sum it up, I just do not agree with her on many political issues, and I certainly do not like the direction that she wants to take our country. I believe that she is wrong with the vision she has.

So why would I support her?

Should I support her just because of her gender? No, THAT would be sexist.

Should I support her just because of her race? No, THAT would be racist.

I would only support her if I agreed with her on the varied issues, and if I thought she had the ability and qualifications to do the job that she’s elected to do. I don’t. And her race and gender have no bearing on that what-so-ever.

I honestly do not care how a person looks, what’s between their legs, or even what their sexual orientation is. Yet, I’m still the one being called a racist and sexist.

It upset me at first, but when I consider the source it explains a lot. I’m not being called those names by my conservative peers who I sometimes disagree with, quite the contrary, that anger is being directed at me by some of my liberal peers — who always seem to resort to name-calling (and worse) when you don’t agree with their biased views.

It’s a very sad statement on our society that my liberal peers cannot even pretend to have a civilized discourse. And I do feel quite sorry for them, for they know not what they do.
