Glimpse Of Hope

For years I’ve been saying the only path to human prosperity and survival is through evolution of conscience and consciousness.

If our thinking and perceptions don’t evolve, they narrow and withdraw from reality. We’ve seen this demonstrated by the Party of Trump and their leader.

The Washington Post chronicles a unique exception to conservative stultification of the mind’s conscience and consciousness. Even a conservative Mormon like Orrin Hatch has shown some progress amidst all the bigotry and regression embraced by the Party of Trump.


Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), a socially conservative 84-year-old Mormon, was long one of the most outspoken critics of gay people in Congress.

In 1977, as a freshman, Hatch said gay people should never be allowed to teach in public schools because they have a “psychological deficiency.”“I wouldn't want to see homosexuals teaching school anymore than I'd want to see members of the American Nazi Party teaching school,” he told a group of students.

In 1988, he referred to Democrats as “the party of homosexuals.”

In the 1990s, he championed the Defense of Marriage Act – which prohibited the federal government from recognizing same-sex unions and barred couples from receiving benefits.

When the Supreme Court struck down the law in 2013, Hatch ripped the justices for relying on their “personal opinion.”
But the times, they are a changin’.

-- Hatch, retiring after 42 years as the longest-serving Republican senator in American history, appears to have had a change of heart. In honor of Pride Month, Hatch took to the Senate floor on Wednesday to send “a message of love” to “my LGBT brothers and sisters.”

“These young men and women deserve to feel loved, cared for and accepted for who they are,” the senator said in a heartfelt speech. “I don’t think they chose to be who they are. They’re born the way they are. And we ought to understand that. They deserve to know that they belong and that our society is stronger because of them…

“No one should ever feel less because of their gender identity or sexual orientation,” he continued. “LGBT youth deserve our unwavering love and support. They deserve our validation and the assurance that not only is there a place for them in this society, but that it is far better off because of them. These young people need us—and we desperately need them. We need their light to illuminate the richness and diversity of God’s creations. We need the grace, beauty and brilliance they bring to the world.”

-- These comments are especially notable because President Trump and Vice President Pence have pointedly declined to acknowledge Pride Month. After Barack Obama issued proclamations all eight Junes he was in office, the White House chose not to do so last year or this year.


-- Against this backdrop and his own history, Hatch pleaded with his fellow conservatives to not just tolerate, but love, those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. “Mr. President, ensuring that our LGBT friends feel loved and accepted is not a political issue,” said Hatch, who as president pro tempore is third in line to the presidency. “We all have a stake in this. We all have family or loved ones who have felt marginalized in one way or another because of gender identity or sexual orientation—and we need to be there for them. … Regardless of where you stand on the cultural issues of the day—whether you are a religious conservative, a secular liberal or somewhere in between—we all have a special duty to each another. That duty is to treat one another with dignity and respect. It is not simply to tolerate, but to love.”


Good for Hatch. It took Obama time to accept marriage equality too.

The question remains when the Party of Trump recognizes this about not only the LGBTQ community, but with liberals, Blacks, Muslims, and immigrants. As long as they are the Party of Trump this consciousness and conscience will be suppressed.

The road is long, and obstructed by the rubble of far Right propaganda, and bridges are far too few. It offers only a slight glimpse of hope when the only Republicans who show truthfulness and compassion are no longer running for office.

We are only at the beginning of the evolution of moral courage and compassion for the modern American Right. For them to continue on this path, they need to turn Left.

Majormajor is proving my point. He hasn't shown the basic decency Hatch has found. In fact he wishes to deflect and distract from the topic again, by showing his cult-like devotion to his Dear Leader.

What makes America great again?

Taking small children from their mothers, putting them in a "Kinder Gulag", bloating the debt by $1.5 trillion for tax cuts for the rich, cutting poor children's health care and denying coverage for people with pre-existing conditions like cancer.

Let's add allowing shills for polluters to regulate the environment, deregulating Wall Street, and praising "very fine people" marching with Nazis.

MM thinks this is all great. Most Americans disagree. Even Republican Corker is seeing them become a cult. Because they are. I told you a long time ago. They are the CRAP. Cult of Right-wing Authoritarian Personalities.

As his beloved Dear Leader the Orange Dictator praises a tyrant and salutes his general.

A real "patriot", amirite?

Is MM afraid to answer my simple questions?

I report. You decide.

Chuck's definitely afraid. Racists always are. They fear everything, and anybody who's non-white.

Testicular cancer, Chuck?

Dave Dubya said...

Now,now. Majormajor insists he's not a racist. He's just a humble "very fine people"/Nazi/racist sympathizer.

Big difference. I'm just not sure what it is yet.

Majormajor said...

"He's just a humble "very fine people"/Nazi/racist sympathizer."

Forgot your "no personal attack rule" again I see. Going to delete yourself, LOL?

Jefferson's Guardian said...

"[Chuck's] just a humble 'very fine people'/Nazi/racist sympathizer." ~~ Dave Dubya

Oh, yes, I forgot to use the word "sympathizer", didn't I?

Of course there's not much difference.

Chuck, when are you going to answer Dave's questions?

By the way, what do you think about your Dear Leader saluting that North Korean military general? How would you have felt if Obama had done the same thing?

And have you heard about Trump's personal slush fund? LOLOL What are your thoughts about that?

When are you going to realize your idolized Donald Trump is nothing but a mob boss?

Majormajor said...

Guess that rule is no longer going to be enforced. So personal attacks are allowed on this blog..

Jg what did you this May Day, same as last year?

When are you going to realize your idolized Black Messiah, B H Obama, is a liar?

Majormajor said...

And the left call Trump voters stupid...

Jefferson's Guardian said...

"Jg what did you this May Day, same as last year?" ~~ Majormajor (aka incoherent Chuck)

Your sentence makes no sense -- just like you.

"When are you going to realize your idolized Black Messiah, B H Obama, is a liar?" ~~ Majormajor (aka Ridiculous Chuck)

Of course there are, right off, two things wrong about your sentence. First, I never even voted for Obama. Additionally, I've never, ever, sung high praises for Obama. He was a corporatist, not unlike the four presidents who preceded him. Not my cup of tea. But you already knew this.

Unlike you, who openly proclaimed you voted for the racist Donald Trump, and even worse, continue to support him despite this fact.

As far as Obama being a liar, all politicians lie -- always have to one degree or another.

But Donald Trump is another story. He never stops lying. He's a pathological liar, like you Chuck. That's probably one of the qualities you adore about him. He's just like you.

No, Chuck, the only times you've seen me defend Obama is when you openly criticize him because he is black. Those are the only times. I'll defend any and all against racist bigotry and hate.

But, Chuck, you already knew that.

Jerry Critter said...

On the subject of Hatch, you reported, “...Hatch took to the Senate floor on Wednesday to send “a message of love” to “my LGBT brothers and sisters.”

Is this Hatch coming out of the closet?

Jefferson's Guardian said...

"Is this Hatch coming out of the closet?" ~~ Jerry Critter

Could be, Jerry, and not that there's anything wrong with that.

My guess, though, is that he's been enlightened by a deep-seated consciousness and has replaced any hatefulness and bigotry with profound love of his fellow human beings.

Something, I'm afraid, Majormajor will find very difficult to obtain. I think he's too far into his cultist world.

Majormajor said...


More Christian type love from the leftist racist who didn't vote for our first black President. Shame on you.

Now Dave, you gonna remove my post or Jg's? You gonna ban him or me for breaking your comment policy?

"Americans will be priced out of Obamacare due to Trump." How can that be, Obama saved every American $2000 in health can costs? It was designed to fail as even before 2016 Obama care premiums were on the rise, but because your Black Messiah was still in office, no one dare said a word.

"rose to power on the racist lie of birtherism." Got sources for that outlandish crazy claim?

Interesting isn't it how the latest "trigger" word for the left is CULT. A liberal writes or says the word on T.V. and wham, it's like "Gravitas", every leftist is using it. Dave by your own definition of cultist, you and Jg are Obama cultists.

Original leftist ideas, forget about that. They follow their masters instructions.

"Children are taken from their parents and put in Camp Sessions', the "Kindergulag"."
You do know that 100's of American citizens and their children are being separated from each other as every day when the parent being in jail or prison? It's one of the ramifications of breaking the law. Like illegally entering the USA, which is breaking the law.

Child Protection Systems: International Trends and Orientations uses the term
"Kindergulag" to describe the effects and results of a country's child protection system, like found in Canada, Sweden, England, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Belgium, Netherlands and Germany, you know those nations much admired by our leftist socialist for their socialism. Good there, not here, but we want socialism!

Majormajor said...

"What Trump administration is doing by separating minor children from their parents, entering the US without government permission, is actually following the law-- a law that Obama and the Congress ignored fixing and obeying.

It turns out that legally, when an adult enters this country with no papers (true in many countries including Mexico), they are arrested and there is a legal penalty of not only a substantial fine but also actual time in prison. Children are then separated from parents (any parents put in prison for any reason) and either given into the custody of a resident of the country or housed safely but apart from the prison where the parent is.

This was ignored during previous administrations as so much has been. My problem with it is if the law is bad and unfair, then change the law. Don't ignore it. When we, as a society or government, say we'll just ignore this law but you obey the rest, many think-- why? We have become a country where many obey only laws they consider fair and not obeying those they don't. Any surprise that more and more of us are becoming lawless.

It goes on and on and what I see is lefties don't want to see the unfairness being done but neither do the righties when it goes the other way. Rules do nothing for us when we defend those who break them if they are in our tribe."

Saluting a commie general who hates us isn't "disrespecting our troops", as much as those Black "sons of bitches" taking a knee protesting racist police brutality.

"Hey, he is the head of a country and I mean he is the strong head. Don't let anyone think anything different. He speaks and his people sit up at attention. I want my people to do the same."

Two dictators, indeed.


""rose to power on the racist lie of birtherism." Got sources for that outlandish crazy claim?"

Spoken like a true white supremacist. Are you sure you want to go there?

Sharing poor Rain's regurgitated ignorance is a weak move. Those appealing for asylum are treated just like criminals. That is NOT the law. She is very gullible and readily swallows far Right dogma like Prager's definitions of liberal and leftist. She took it as Gospel.

Sad. If she wants to consider herself independent she should try thinking and researching for herself. We can hope maybe she'll figure that out.

We have little hope for the Trump cultists, though. You know who you are.

Majormajor said...

I am sure I want you Dave to support your outlandish crazy claim.

The test of your post, typical leftist tripe, using Saul's points to the max.

Majormajor said...

Both Dave and Jg can not support Dave's claim that President Trump "rose to power on the racist lie of birtherism." But they will go to their grave believing that fairy tale or deflect because they have nothing but their opinion to offer. And in the real world, that's not good enough.

Note: as predicted, the race card has been played.

A bit of reality that they will deflect from can be found on page 409 of the IG report where the "Resistance" fighters in the FBI said "the POTUSA wants to know everything" about what they were doing, as they set up the fairy tale of Russian collusion. Don't believe me, read it yourself, I've given you the source which is lot more that you can say about your lie that President Trump "rose to power on the racist lie of birtherism."

Next will come more claims of my being a racist, sad.

Dave Dubya said...

"your lie that President Trump "rose to power on the racist lie of birtherism."

Right. Saying racist things and defending a racist doesn't make him a racist.

Deflecting and denying racism is what "very fine people" do, amirite?

It is a cult.

"Poor MM is unable to indicate what was 'outlandish' or 'crazy' about saying his Big MAGAt rose to power on the racist lie of birtherism." ~~ Dave Dubya

It's bewildering to me, Dave. It's common knowledge, but of course there's not much that can be said that's "common" about Chuck, and it has been proven -- time and time again -- he doesn't have any knowledge.

All one has to do is google "Birthism Trump" and the articles about his role in reviving the lie of birthism are there for anybody to see -- even an ignorant white supremacist like Chuck.

I bet that's when -- the day Trump started blowing the racist dog whistle of bithism -- that all the white supremacists in the country first really took notice of Trump and thought, "I wish he'd run for president."

Was that your "epiphany moment", Chuck? Was that when you knew, down deep, that Donald Trump was your savior? I bet you can even name a date and can tell everyone exactly what you were doing When you heard the "dog whistle".

Woof Woof! ;-)

Exhibit A regarding why I use comment moderation. One change-the-subject troll successfully derailed the whole comment thread. If such comments are just deleted in moderation before they even appear, this doesn't happen.

Dave Dubya said...


I actually moderate the worst of his racist comments.

He is also Exhibit A showing the degree far Right brainwashing and racism penetrate their cult.

Their projection, victim card, whataboutism, bigotry, lies, etc. is something for us to analyze.

They project their own "Saul Alinsky" tactics on us. They are "Trump tactics" today of course, and the lineage goes back to Goebbels.

Even "Godwin's law" has even been modified for our anti-American cult in power.

Mike Godwin said, "If you're thoughtful about it and show some real awareness of history, go ahead and refer to Hitler when you talk about Trump. Or any other politician."

Their authoritarianism is humanity's fatal flaw. Every generation must fight them and defeat them or face tyranny and utter destruction.

Thanks to the contributions of cultists like Majormajor, I have compiled the Authoritarian Dirty Dozen Rules of Discourse for my next post.

Majormajor said...

"your lie that President Trump "rose to power on the racist lie of birtherism."

Where's the proof?? Where's the smoking gun? Where's the deleted trail of emails" Where's the server in the bathroom?
Why there is none, it's just the opinion of those who find racism behind every tree, and like prostitutes it has no visible means of support. Another example of THE LEFT'S pipe dream because the left can't believe they lost, so the other side must have cheated.

Yet as we now know, the left had taken control of the FBI under the Black Guy, to the point where they were on the take, and clearly stated what they thought about Trump supporters. Odd, but they sounded a lot like the owner of this blog and his little buddies.

The result has been summarized clearly by former NYC Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik: "There’s no greater threat to our democracy than a government that weaponizes its criminal justice system to target its citizens and in this case the target today is the President of the United States."

The Obama administration, the DNC, and the Leftist cult, owns this as their legacy.

Dave Dubya said...

"Where's the proof, he demands, under the very words showing proof of his racism.

"the left had taken control of the FBI under the Black Guy"

Isn't he a loyal cultist here?

Yes, we all remember Comey announcing the investigation of Russian influence on the Trump campaign a week before the election....NOT

The "Trump/white victim card" again.

Awww. And isn't this one cute?

Majormajor invokes the "wisdom" of convicted felon and liar "Krooked Bernie Karik".

Can't prove his claim, can't disprove mine, so what does the good leftist cult member do? The same old thing, deflection..."Sad".

Majormajor said...

Sure Dave, what ever you say ole Cult Leader of Authoritarian Tactics and ETC.
You forgot the Left's favorite tactic of blaming the right for something they are doing.

Dave still can't support his claim that Trump rose to power on birtherism, but never mind, Dave will change the subject.
