Remember how all of the self-proclaimed open minded people lost their minds when Trump won the presidency? Riots, fire starting, looting, rock throwing, vulgar #Resist rallies sprang up in all the major cities.
What happened to the spirit of their COEXIST bumper stickers? Does COEXIST really mean that they only want to exist with others who think exactly as they do? That’s not coexistence, that’s group think.
Dirtbags resort to profanity when they can’t think of intelligent words to communicate thoughts. Other dirtbags encourage their behavior.
A few years ago brought a delicious pop tune by Adam Levine called “Payphone.” Smart, catchy, ear worm perfection.
Adam Levine and his wife have two small children. No one would ever think to walk up to the Levines and start using f-words and other unsavory language around their children because we can all agree that vulgarity is unsuitably impolite (if not abusive) for tender ears.
Adam Levine himself appeared for many years on NBC’s “The Voice” singing program and he never had trouble communicating with participants and viewers while using clean language.
But in dirtbag culture, speaking clearly and effectively does not generate credibility. So Levine enlisted the services of Wiz Khalifa to overlay extra profane lyrics to Payphone to give it a more menacing feel. Levine recorded a second set of vocals using profanity to appeal to dirtbag culture.
Notice how even the person who typed the vulgar lyrics felt the need to add asterisks to the foul words.
There’s the disconnect. A majority of Americans demand a clean version of radio music, TV language, public speaking language, and online text. Dirtbags feel entitled to overrun the culture with their sewer mouthed disregard for everyone else’s comfort zone.
COEXIST? Yeah, no thanks.
Everyone has to have their ears blistered with the overly emotional rantings of people who didn’t get their way. Emotion over logic. Emotion gets the headlines while logic gets the job done.
With a pandemic shutting down the world through most of 2020, Trump spars with an adversarial media at daily briefings and it only strengthens his hand. “He said COVID-19 was a nineteenth strain but it’s really a reference to 2019! Trump is a MORON!” said some journalist on Twitter which was then repeated by 95% of the media universe without any fact checking.
“Trump called coronavirus a HOAX!” tweets some other misinformed journalist and it is parroted by a massive majority of media lemmings.

Trump makes mistakes, but many times he is falsely accused of misspoken minutiae which is irrelevant to the overall advancement of America at large. They’re just unnecessary face punches that reward partisanship and drag down the culture.
I don’t sense any sea change from 4 years of constant profane, belligerent, sometimes violent resistance. Trump has pushed back every massive movement to remove him from office. He’s likely going to prevail in November from the murky slowdown of 2020 which kept his opponents’ campaigns from every fully blooming.
