Why Republicans Are Not “Nice”?

Democrats break their arms patting themselves on the back for being nice!  In fact, the word “nice” may be the loudest mantra to dribble out of the mouths of those on the left.

If you want to steal other people’s money and give it to those “less fortunate,” then you are nice according to Democrats.

If you supported Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama, you are especially nice.

If you believe and support abortion, gun control, raising the minimum wage, illegal immigration, welfare, catastrophic human-induced global warming, free college tuition, universal healthcare, that Ronald Reagan was a racist, trigger warnings, outlawing the First Amendment, coal is bad, higher taxes, men using women’s bathroom, expanding federal programs, new regulatory mandates on business, the state is god, Donald Trump is a racist, white men are evil, Hillary Clinton is good, NAFTA, Ben Shapiro is anti-Semitic, FoxNews isn’t real news, all Republicans are Nazi’s, Tax and spend, increasing the power of the federal government, using the IRS as a Gestapo to stop those on the right, Iran nuclear deal, amnesty to illegal immigrants, more regulations, Mike Pence is a racist, a sky-is-the-limit confiscatory taxation on the “rich”, white privilege is real, safe zones on college campuses, free speech for Democrats, Fidel Castro, It Takes a Village, all white Republican men are sexist, Donald Trump is a sexist (and did I mention a racist), all religions are the same except Christianity — they’re a bunch of racist, and (wait for it), the Founding Fathers of the United States were a bunch white European males who were racist, sexist, xenophobic, homophobic, warmongering sadist who established a social and economic  system to perpetrate crimes against all the peoples of the world, then you are a nice person.

But if you do not support the above-stated beliefs, then you are not nice. You are a Republican.

Trying to explain this nice/not nice paradigm to readers of the HuffingandPuffington Post, writer Cody Cain uses the example of immigration.

“Republicans seem to harbor some sort of a fear of foreigners and an aversion against other kinds of people who are not part of the established in-group. Their view seems to be that these other people are not like us, they pose a threat to us, and thus automatically they should be regarded as enemies.”

Seriously! This paragraph may be the most ignorant statement I’ve read in 2016!

But the loopy reporter continues, “Democrats, on the other hand, tend to view all people first and foremost as human beings (well, unless you are a child in utero or conservative). To a Democrat, a Mexican immigrant is a human being, just like an American, but a human being who just so happened to have been born in a place named Mexico on a map. That’s all.”ibid.

Okay!  Now I’ve read the second most ignorant statement of 2016.  Mr. Cain, and please try to hear me on this, I’ve never met a Republican who has a problem with LEGAL immigration.  The key word being legal.  Our issue is with ILLEGAL immigration.

But alas!  I’m sure Mr. Cain won’t hear me on this and will still label myself and others as not being “nice.”

But here is a tidbit that you may not know.  The English word “nice” is derived from Latin word “nescius” meaning “ignorant.” The word began life in the fourteenth century as a term for “foolish” and/or “silly.” From there it embraced many a negative quality, including oblivious, wantonness, extravagance, and ostentation, as well as cowardice and sloth.

The irony!  The word “nice” truly sums up leftist, liberals, and Mr. Cody Cain!
