Tandra Page 1540, Bad Words

Visit : http://www.tandra.com 

I’m sitting on my back porch looking out over the yard as the rising sun brightens the Eastern sky.

President Donald J. Trump is accused of using politically incorrect words to refer to countries of which many citizens are not well educated nor do they have marketable skills. So President Trump used politically insensitive words. What else is new?

The Liberal Regressives are all up in arms and condemning Trump with loud and indignant voices. Again, what else is new?

It is charged by the politically sensitive that President Trump’s ill chosen words will bring down Western Civilization. And as before, what else is new?

Back in the day, in the movie “Gone With The Wind”, when Rhett Butler finally walked out on Scarlett O’Hara at the end of the film and Scarlett wailed, “Oh, Rhett, whatever shall I do?” Rhett replied, “Frankly, My Dear, I don’t give a damn!”

Because of demands from the Hollywood censorship board that was in power at the time, it was advised to fundamentally transform the line (which was lifted directly from the book) to something more family friendly, such as mebbe, “I really don’t care”, or “I don’t give a darn”, or “I have other things to do”, or anything rather than the offending line.

But words have explicit meanings and no other line had the dramatic punch of “Frankly, My Dear, I don’t give a damn!”
So the line remained as written in the script and in Margaret Mitchell’s novel. And the world did not end.

There are cases of which only the exact words will portray the precise meaning intended. President Trump used the words necessary to say exactly what he meant. No other choice of words would have given the precise meaning President Trump intended.

Americans must needs remember, we elected a warrior to the Oval Office, not an expert in political double speak. We have had an over abundance of professional double speakers in office for far too long.

And while the Liberal Regressives have their shorts all in a wad over President Trump’s particular choice of words, I do not notice an excess of civil political discourse on display whenever Liberal Regressives decide to go off on Christians and Americans. When the Political Left speaks of us, words such as “ignorant”, “deplorable”, “irrational”, “racist”, “intolerant” and such like abound.

Obviously Liberal Regressives have no problem with “bad words” if it forwards their agenda. Liberal Regressives are only bent out of shape when Americans respond in kind. Liberal Regressives do not want to modify our speech to that proper for a drawing room.

They wish to completely shut us down.
