    Trust me, I totally relate with the sentiment.

    They're evil. Bottom line.

    Much of the animosity is probably a bitter root caused by Clintonians

    The Democrats are acting like the most corrupt parties of 3rd-world and Communist nations, in their effort to destroy Trump. I don't k now if there's any redemption for them, or if they won't stop until they turn America into a tyrannical Hell.

    From the article: “We did nothing wrong and they’re doing nothing,” he (Trump) said of Democrats. :Thumbsup

    I keep seeing articles about the 'cold anger' that's building due to the evil and blatant injustices that being perpetuated on this country. If true, there's nothing new about it; a short poem by Kipling:

    When The Saxon Began To Hate….

    "...As to this particular poem, it rhymes pretty well and is dramatic. I don’t actually know its point. But it might be this:

    If you pick on somebody long enough, call them names, and do things to them that are not niiiice…you may eventually provoke a reaction you don’t expect or want...."

    THE WRATH OF THE AWAKENED SAXON
    by Rudyard Kipling

    It was not part of their blood,
    It came to them very late,
    With long arrears to make good,
    When the Saxon began to hate.

    They were not easily moved,
    They were icy — willing to wait
    Till every count should be proved,
    Ere the Saxon began to hate.

    Their voices were even and low.
    Their eyes were level and straight.
    There was neither sign nor show
    When the Saxon began to hate.

    It was not preached to the crowd.
    It was not taught by the state.
    No man spoke it aloud
    When the Saxon began to hate.

    It was not suddently bred.
    It will not swiftly abate.
    Through the chilled years ahead,
    When Time shall count from the date
    That the Saxon began to hate.

    Not a little disturbing, even in its original form. It's a slight revision of Kipling's 1917 poem "The Beginnings" with the recurring line "When the English began to hate." Evidently, the revision is attributed to modern "white nationalist/white supremacist" influence. The original inspiration was more specific, evidently added as a postscript to the war story "Mary Postgate."

    The Beginnings (from A Diversity of Creatures, by Rudyard Kipling)
    It was not part of their blood,
    It came to them very late  
    With long arrears to make good,
    When the English began to hate.

    Their versions of "diversity" and "liberty" are inevitably leading them down an increasingly vile path, the broad way of destruction, and they intend to take the entire nation with them using every means at their disposal.

    Did you find this disturbing?:

    Does this disturb you?:

    21 Do not I hate them, O Jehovah, that hate thee? And am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?
    22 I hate them with perfect hatred: They are become mine enemies. Ps 139

    I never figured you to be the type to be so easily 'disturbed' and cry 'racist'. Racism was not in the least the gist of my post.

    There's nothing new about this growing hatred of the ungodliness of the Democrat party, whether it occurred with the Hebrew, the English, the Saxon, etc..

    Nyah, KY, I didn’t cry racism at all. I noted that some have revised the poem—“English” to “Saxon.” I didn’t call them racist. I wondered if you realized it was a revision, but believe everyone should be aware.

    The original, as I said, is disturbing enough. I also re-read “Mary Postgate” before posting. It’s the form the hatred can take, the wrong turns it can make, that I find most disturbing.

    The thing about hate is that actions start to become extreme and those actions can be difficult to take back. When civil starts becoming less than civil and battles become a war.

    This is an important battle that involves preserving our values of independence, liberty and way of life that has set us apart from the rest of the world and we have come under attack by those on the inside who would abolish our constitutional roots to destroy our foundation.

    But if and when it becomes a war fueled by hate we must remember like they had to during the Civil War before our time that we fight brother against brother and that the day will come when must find peace and put all these differences behind us to again be One Nation Under God - Indivisible.
