Kyle Clark made the horrible “error” of featuring a congenial, patriotic Trump supporter who we all see on I-25 waving his giant American flag. His dedication to this activity should be praiseworthy and heartwarming. And, for some of us, it is. But for liberals out there, it made their heads explode and they sent letters complaining that Clark would feature (gasp) a Trump supporter.
Just watch the Next piece here:
For those out there who think this is an anomaly, it is not. Clark got just a hint of what it’s like to be a conservative or a Republican or, even worse, a Trump supporter. It happens to us every day – we could call them microaggressions if we cared that much what other people thought. It’s in line at the grocery store the day after the 2016 or even 2014 election when everyone but you is in deep mourning. Or, it’s a cocktail party of mixed political persuasion when people suddenly get silent and disperse when you admit that you voted for Trump. Each day, intolerance from liberals rears its ugly head.
Clark is right. The media should show more differing perspectives, like conservatives. The funny thing is that it’s not like Clinton won by huge margins here in Colorado. Trump lost by about five points. To put this in perspective, Clinton won California by about 30 points. Colorado is a pretty evenly-divided place politically. We aren’t suggesting that everyone become a Republican or a conservative, but a little more “live and let live” attitude toward conservatives would go a long way.
