Nothing makes me more angry than hearing from one of those whose job it once was to safeguard my country a willingness to support, and for president no less, those politicians who not only have no interest in protecting my country, but also those politicians who voice a hatred for the country I love and who would seem to be out to destroy it. Which brings me to Colon Powell who, just this past Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” actually called President Donald Trump “dangerous” to our country. This coming from a guy who voted for ‘BO,’ not once buy twice, and who now will be, and apparently proudly so, voting for ‘Creepy, Crooked Joe’ Biden.
It was ‘Colon’ who said, “I never believed that the constitution was under threat until recently. I have concerns about that. We should all be attentive right now to how the rule of law is being administered in this country.” He continued by saying, “We have a constitution. We have to follow that constitution. The president’s drifted away from it. I’m so proud of what these generals and admirals have done, and others have done.” He went on to add, “The first thing that troubled me is the whole birther movement.” He said, “The birthers movement had to do with the fact that the president of the United States, President Obama, was a black man.”
‘Colon’ then went on to say, “That was part of it. And then I was deeply troubled by the way in which he was going around insulting everybody, insulting gold star mothers, insulting John McCain, insulting immigrants—I’m a son of immigrants— insulting anybody who dared to speak against him. And that is dangerous for our democracy. It is dangerous for our country.” And it was from there that Colon added, “I think what we’re seeing now, those massive protest movements I have ever seen in my life. I think this suggests the country is getting wise to this, and we’re not going to put up with it anymore.” What a blatantly ignorant, and racist, thing to have said.
Old ‘Colon’ concluded by saying, “We’re not the country of just the president, we have a Congress, we have a Supreme Court, but most of all we have the people of the United States, the ones who vote. The ones who vote him in and the ones who vote him out. I couldn’t vote for him in 2016. I certainly cannot in any way support President Trump this year.” It was on the subject of ‘Creepy, Crooked Joe’ that ‘Colon’ said, “I’m very close to Joe Biden in a social manner and political manner. I’ve worked with him for 35, 40 years, and he is now the candidate and I will be voting for him.” They say, you can judge a man by the company he keeps.
I mean, how is it that the guy of whom it was once said has been wrong on every major foreign policy and national security issue over the last four decades is now just the guy that old ‘Colon’ somehow thinks, far from representing a danger to country, is qualified to be president? And that man is ‘Creepy, Crooked Joe’ Biden. But then, ‘Colon’ also thought that ‘BO’ too was the perfect man to be president, but then that had much more to do with the matter of skin color than it actually did with whether or not the candidate was actually qualified to be president, which he so very obviously was not. But still ‘Colon’ felt ‘BO’ was worthy of his vote.
While I suppose it’s only appropriate to thank ‘Colon’ for his service to his country, I think we must also acknowledge the fact that were it not for affirmative action it’s highly unlikely that he would have progressed as far as he did. And with that said who is it that cares what citizen ‘Colon’ thinks, does, or recommends? When determining who it is that one should vote for, that candidate should be evaluated based on their record of accomplishment. President Trump has a long list of accomplishments, all of them good for America. And President Trump has made good on a majority of his campaign promises? And most importantly, he loves America.
And isn’t interesting how ‘Colon’ mentions McCain and how supposedly bothered he was by what President Trump said about him. And yet when McCain ran for president in 2008 who was it that ‘Colon’ chose to endorse? It was in choosing skin color over what was best for the country that ‘Colon’ went with ‘BO’. ‘Colon’ left the Republican Party a long time ago and lost whatever credibility he may have one time possessed when he chose to vote for a man for President whose only qualifications for the job was he was Black. It matters not what ‘Colon’ thinks of President Trump, and it matter even less that he has said he intends to vote for ‘Creepy, Crooked Joe.’
‘Colon’ was a shallow self-serving opportunist who sucked up Ronald Reagan and the Bushes because it was good for his career, that’s all. He possessed no accomplishments worthy of his position and never even held a major command. When his career was over he revealed what he likely had been all along. There are fighting generals and then there are political generals. And it’s very clear in which camp it is that we find old ‘Colon.’ Today ‘Colon’ is another heavy hitter who calls the deep state home and seems determined to prevent Donald Trump from being re-elected. ‘Colon’ doesn’t care about the U.S. Constitution, he supported ‘BO’. That says it all.
