It’s often said that you can judge a man by his friends, but you can judge him even more by his enemies. And there’s a lot of truth to this. When you see a certain group of people united in their hatred against someone, it prompts you to ask: Why do they perceive this person to be such a threat? Why do they hate him (or her) so passionately?
Today, the question begging to be asked is this: Why do so many Hollywood elites despise President Trump? Why the intensity of the vitriol? Why the unbridled viciousness? Why the open death wishes? Why the level of vulgarity?
Is it because they are morally superior human beings, enlightened in their understanding and conducting their lives on a higher more plane? Is it because they find the president’s personality to be offensive? Or is it because they are morally bankrupt?
Before you say, “They find the president’s personality to be offensive,” ask yourself this question: If Ted Cruz was president or if Mike Pence was president, would these same Hollywood elites be any less hostile?
In my opinion, the answer is absolutely not. In fact, they might be even uglier in their vitriolic attacks.
That’s because the hostility ultimately comes down to moral values. To the idea of the Christian roots of America. To the battle over abortion and LGBT “rights.” (I put “rights” in quotes not because LGBT people don’t deserve equal protection under the law. They absolutely do. But the goals of LGBT activists go far beyond “equal protection” and “equal law.”)
Trump may step on more toes, but he is not the real target. The target is those who hold to conservative moral values. It is morality, more than personality, that drives the hostility.
Why am I so sure?
Here are three strong reasons.
