Thanks to leftist propaganda being pushed in the mainstream media and on social networks by liberal celebrities, it’s become the cool, hip thing to insult the president and disrespect him at every turn.
Some, like comedian Kathy Griffin, think it’s funny to post images of the president being murdered or chopped into pieces. Just imagine if conservative entertainers had made such jokes about Obama. Yikes.
Well, even though social media is stocked with all sorts of crass and disrespectful zingers and people saying “he’s not their president,” not everyone in America is so cruel.
President Trump recently visited the victims of the Las Vegas mass shooting in the hospital, where he met one man who exemplifies what it means to show respect to your leaders.
When the president and his wife entered his room, despite being injured, he stood up to shake his hand.
via The Daily Caller:
A badly wounded Las Vegas shooting survivor quickly stood up when President Donald Trump came to visit him in the hospital.
“I will never lie down when the President of this great country comes to shake my hand!” Gunderson, who was shot in the leg, wrote in a Facebook post Wednesday. “There may be plenty of issues in this country but I will always respect my country, my president and my flag. Shot in the leg or not, I will stand to show my President the respect he deserves!”
He stood up with some difficulty as soon as First Lady Melania entered the room and shook her hand, then rested briefly before getting to his feet again when the president came in. He and Trump exchange a hand shake and a few words.
“Thank you so much,” Gunderson says.
In the video, Gunderson was first greeted by Melania Trump, then the president followed.
You don’t have to agree with Trump or even like him all that much to still show respect to the man in the office and the country he helps to govern. That’s what is beautiful about America. We’re free to disagree with each other in a way that allows us to be friends and not mortal enemies.
Unfortunately, the political left in this country is far too wrapped up in wanting to be right, wanting to be accepted by the mainstream to care for doing the right thing and showing respect to someone they disagree with.
Hopefully that attitude will change.
