Trump Flags A-Flyin'

There are two Trump flags being displayed in my neighborhood. I can't recall what, if any other flags accompany both of them, but one is not hanging up next to an American flag.

It stands by itself, and like the other, is large and bold with the name emblazened upon it. This is not some sign staked out during campaign season to announce a household's political preference. This is a grand standard declaring a specific allegiance.

Now, I admired (still do) the hell out of Obama. However, it would never have occurred to me to fly a flag that fairly shouts out his name.

That is the mind set favored by those who follow Trump that disturbs me. It is not just that they have ideas and support policies that diverge from my own. I expect that in a democracy.

The support extended to Trump goes beyond that which one sees in a democracy. George W. Bush's supporters were not so enamored of him that his name was waved about on banners as an everyday expression of loyalty.

Trump devotees may talk about there love of country; however their focus on one man is akin to worship.

2. No, but

George W. Bush's supporters were not so enamored of him that his name was waved about on banners as an everyday expression of loyalty.


Those damn "W" stickers were EVERYWHERE around here.

But I do agree, there is an eerie kind of adoration going on here.

With Obama, it was more admiration.

15. Stopped by a grocery store today, got out of my car...

and five rows down there was a big black pick up truck with a huge Trump 2020 flag on the back! This flag was bigger than one you'd see on a post office flagpole.

I haven't seen that in my area since pre-election. This was not in a red area of the state.
