Newsmax TV host
I happened to catch the tail end of Wendy Bell’s show last week and as usual, she spoke about current events. There was good reporting, quality panel discussion, and even articulate editorializing, but then she took a commercial break.
After the break, Wendy went into her op-ed segment, something that I usually look forward to hearing. She began with a tease about how during her last two shows she expressed opinions that sparked enormous amounts of negative press and angry tweets, especially from conservatives. Apparently, they struck a nerve with their response.
These are the issues she said caused the unwarranted animus. First, there’s her position on Trump. She doesn’t think he’s necessarily the best man for the job and that there may be others more qualified. Also, she thinks in order for the GOP to win in 2024, the conservative platform needs to abandon the abortion issue in favor of other more important concerns like the economy, crime, and the border.
Wendy defended her position with little regard for the legitimacy of the anger she ignited. Conservatives don’t just get upset for any reason, and if they do, they usually don’t take the next step of documenting their anger unless they’re really upset. I think Wendy missed the point here. She has every right to express her opinion but she doesn’t have a right to delegitimize opposing opinion just because it’s expressed with anger.
So, to be on the safe side, I will express my opinion without an angry tone or exasperated sarcasm. For America to be great again, we need President Trump back in the Whitehouse. Will it always be pretty, polite, and dignified? No. Trump is result-orientated; pushing, shoving, and shouting are often necessary to motivate real results. Need proof? Look how far America has fallen in just two years under Biden’s politically sophisticated and well-bred leadership.
I think we need Trump more than ever and if he isn’t given the chance to finish what he started six years ago, the implications are far more insidious than could possibly be imagined. But that’s a subject for a future post.
As important as Trump is to the future of this country, he pales in comparison to holding on to our true values as conservative Americans. I’m sorry Wendy, but the responsibility to save lives is always good. It’s good for the economy. It reduces crime (abortion is murder). It maintains a strong and viable population, and it’s not something that begins or ends at our border. Abortion, as a means of birth control, is absolutely wrong. The conservative platform should always contain a Pro-Life plank.
For now, Wendy is entitled to her opinion regarding Trump, abortion, and anything else she chooses to talk about because in America, free speech still exists, and everybody has a right to be wrong.
I don’t know Wendy personally, but I assume she has the family that she wants; a husband, children, and maybe even grandchildren. However, by forsaking life, she completely dismisses the fact that many men in America don’t have the family they want, and never will … Roe vs. Wade.
PS – Abortion is not illegal in the US; by overturning Roe vs. Wade, the Supreme Court simply put it back where it belongs, The States.
