One of the dangers facing our country today is extremism, which is showing its fangs in the direction that we as a nation are taking. Much of this extremism was developed by entities eating out of the proverbial dumpster, feeding their hatred for our legitimately elected president, who is fulfilling the promises he made to get elected. The extremists’ objective is to paralyze President Trump’s ability to put forth additional policies that run contrary to their anti-America agenda.

Many attempts to delegitimize Mr. Trump’s presidency have failed, and the left has resorted to charges of racism, white supremacy and other ridiculous labels in an effort to make the current administration look bad.

I don’t think our Founding Fathers meant for us to use the First Amendment as an undisciplined dog, running around the neighborhood unleashed, while letting the biased media and radical left use underhanded methods to silence the right to free speech of those who have been referred to as “deplorables.”
