Trump Follower?

A Muslim man who was involved in a minor traffic mishap tries to apologize to the other driver … and this was her reaction. (The incident was recorded on the man’s phone.)

You can read more here. The article says the incident occurred in Alaska, but one of the people who left a comment said it happened in No. Carolina.

    • I’d seen this one before, but it’s been awhile. I totally agree with what the You-Tuber wrote … “that’s the mentality that keeps us from progressing.”

      Even though this attitude has been there all along, tRump has brought it to the surface by spewing his own bigotry and racism — and this has given people the idea that it’s A-OK to do the same.

      I know I’m pretty much “preaching to the choir” when I add these posts about “him,” but it scares me sh__less to think he might one day be in control. This country is already torn apart and divided (primarily since Obama was elected … and we all know why that is). Imagine how much worse it will be if tRump is elected and brings his intolerant and prejudicial attitude to the Oval Office!

  2. Did I miss something…did she have a Trump bumper sticker? I tried to look but didn’t notice.

    He should turn that video into the police and she should be arrested for saying that she was going to kill him and run him over.

    • You’re correct … there doesn’t seem to be any indication of a tRump sticker. However, her reaction falls right in line with the rhetoric he’s putting forth so I would say it’s not too big of a leap to make the connection.

      There have been protesters at his rallies that have actually been physically harmed and nothing has been done, so I doubt this video would even create a stir. JMO.

      • Then I feel it’s wrong to post this video and say she is a Trump supporter. I find her actions horrible and I most people I know would too. It’s your blog and obviously freedom of speech is protected, but I feel this feeds into the continuous bickering between the two parties. I noticed you wrote tRump, I’m not sure why that’s needed. Just my opinion.

        • Sally, notice the title of my post. While I do tend to think she IS a Trump supporter because of her reaction and words, I did not say this is so many words.

          I have no respect for him, thus I write his name as you see. I’m sorry if it offends you.

          Further, I don’t see where this feeds the bickering between the two parties. While I definitely do not care for the “politics” of the other Republican candidates (nor do I care for Hillary), I am primarily focusing on Trump because I truly and deeply feel he will be VERY bad for our country.

        • It still lumps Trump supporters together as that imbecile you posted. And so when I try to talk to people in a logical way, I’m called many names. If you’re posting videos that suggest maybe she’s a Trump supporter and others are as well… Then u are a part of feeding into a frenzy to label Trump supporters as a bunch of vicious racists. It gets us no where.

          I don’t care when either side changes a person’s name, tRump, Killary , Faux News… I don’t see how this helps two sides to come together to find common ground. Are u going to want to have a nice debate if I’m calling Burnie names and said all supporters are lazy because they want free stuff.

          I think Bernie would be bad for our country, but I don’t have to cut down his character or make fun of his name or post videos saying this must be a Burnie supporter… I feel it works better if I give reasons. Again, your blog lol

          As for a dialogue with those opposed to Trump, such as one would find here, I’m certain the term is self-explanatory and understood by all.

          As for a dialogue with a Trump supporter – what could possibly be the purpose?

Instead of acting like you are so much better than those of us that believed longer than you, you should be proud that people like myself and Matt were able to break free despite believing in God for most of our lives. I hope my words and my attitude always encourage people to look and search, don’t be afraid.. If I can do it.. So can they. Sadly, your words above give atheists bad name.

          I can be happy for you, but hardly proud that it took you 30 years to accumulate the knowledge that religion was unsupportable, that only tells me you didn’t try very hard to substantiate your beliefs with evidence. But better late than never —

Personally, I want people to see I still have compassion for them. When I discuss my non belif with believers, I try to not come off as I’m so smart and you’re so dumb.

        • I’m simply amazed that believers, for the most part, seem to never make any effort to research the Bible, looking at who wrote it, when, and for what reason (agendas are all-important) – it would seem to me, that if I were to hold a particular belief, I would want to know everything there was about it, applying the scientific method to determine if in fact, it was falsifiable.

          I can speak to at least three people, in the past year or so, that came on boards Christians, convinced that they were going to convert the heathen, and went away realizing that their belief systems were invalid. One of the reasons for their change of heart was that I respected them, if not their beliefs.

          In your case, you rubbed me the wrong way when you began here by being critical – had you actually applied your contention of not coming across as, “I’m so smart and you’re so dumb,” we likely would not have ever butted heads.

          I asked first if I missed a bumper sticker saying Trump. When the answer was no, then I moved forward saying I felt it was inappropriate. I still do. The woman was vile and disgusting and to attach her to someone without any proof I felt was in poor taste. I can handle Trump jokes just as I can blond jokes, but there is a line.

          Maybe that was meant to be a joke amongst friends and I walked in and shouldn’t have. I’ll stay away from further Trump/conservative topics and only read those that are atheist related so people in this blog can feel free to mock people like myself.

        • Please excuse typos, I’m on my phone. I feel if we had the Internet 25 years ago, I would have left my faith earlier . I was at the library with my husband and found a book about stories in the Bible that didn’t match up. I wanted to check it out, but my husband discouraged me. Said the Bible has no errors. Being only 20, I didn’t go back. But if I had a phone… Curiosity would have gotten to me. I did read the Case for Christ. I didn’t feel it was the best explanation, but left it at that.

          Secondly… There is this fear that God can read our brain. And to even doubt him is sin. I know that sounds silly to you… But it’s really scary to think God can read your doubts. After this struggle, I thought.. God gave me a brain and why would he care if I need to look up more proof. He’s God and the evidence should be overwhelming in his court. That is a huge hurdle to get over… That its ok to look elsewhere besides the Bible or Christian authors.

          So I get how you’re thinking.. How could they be so gullible for so long…but when u live and breathe a religion, it changes how u think. It’s like being stuck to those glue mouse traps… And to get out is a struggle, u even have residue that u have to clean away…. It’s hard. And now I’m all alone in my atheism. That’s hard too, but I’m definitely not going back to that glue trap and I am proud that I fought for my freedom.

          And yes, there is residue. Guilt was a biggie for me. But what can you expect after a constant stream of indoctrination (or my favorite, brainwashing)? It’s just like anything in life. When something is repeated often enough and with enough force, it slowly but surely gets embedded in your psyche.

          Anyway, glad to see you made it out all in one piece.

They almost divorced, and they have this incredible autistic son who has made remarkable progress in the past year, to the point where his autism is barely noticeable. I’ve heard no more about it, though we stay in touch, so I can only assume they worked it out.

          https://attaleuntold.wordpress.com/

          It’s owned by my good friend, Ark (Arkenaten), and although most of the blog entries are about religion (though Ark himself is not a deconvertee, never having been religious), because he is an excellent photographer (don’t tell him I said so), some of his entrees are about the incredible variety of insects that he finds in his rather large garden, and on occasion, pastries created by his daughter, an absolute artiste with cakes.

          I might warn you that we rather enjoy sniping at each other, and there are some who visit just for the entertainment value, to see what we’re going to say next, but it’s all in good natured fun – as ‘Hawkeye Pierce’ once said in ‘M*A*S*H,’ “You gotta go a little crazy some of the time, to keep from going a lot of crazy all of the time!“.

          But most of the topics are, as I say, about religion. But even the ones about insects are for the most part fascinating. Did you know that little crab spiders can change their color to match the color of the flower they are using to catch food? Ark didn’t either, but after he had shown, on various occasions, crab spiders whose color perfectly matched that of their flower of choice, I told myself, “These little guys don’t know what color they are, they don’t have little spider-mirrors, so how could they choose a flower that so perfectly matched their own color?” The answer was obvious, they couldn’t – some other mechanism had to be at work – you’ll never know how hard I resisted the temptation to assume goddidit —

          I mentioned this to Ark, who decided to photograph this one particular white crab spider that had chosen to sit on a deep yellow flower. For five days in a row, he took a shot of this little guy (or gal), and as they say a lot in the Bible, “Lo!” – each day, the spider was a little less white and a slightly more yellow, until finally, at the end of the fifth day, it perfectly matched its flower! Maybe you don’t, but I think that’s fascinating!

          However I can’t explain this little guy [one of Ark’s greater shots], unless he’s been sitting on a candy cane —

The site contains numerous articles that he puts out weekly on average, that I would suggest you browse.

          Those should keep you busy for at least a month or more. I wish I could turn you on to the blog of my friend, the former ‘Ain’tNoShrinkingViolet,’ who has since changed her name simply to ‘Violet’ (I have no idea if that means she has begun shrinking again –), but Vi quit blogging when she had to go back to work full time to keep her autistic son in the special school that has caused him to make such incredible progress in the past year, as she no longer has time to blog (and at a very young age, is afflicted with excruciating Rheumatoid Arthritis), though she does drop by to comment every now and then (and may well be reading this!).
