This week on Un-Trumped the tables have turned! Doug relinquished e the moderator’s seat and asked me to lead a discussion on why he supported Hillary for President. I was eager to do this as I have not gotten the chance to ask him anything about his leftist viewpoints. Support for Hillary is as equally as baffling to those with a conservative viewpoint.
What exactly does it mean to be “enthroned on the praises of His people”? How do we hold our convictions while engaging in conversation/relationship with people who think or believe so different?
Episode Three is a meandering discussion related to Doug’s concerns that President Trump is “dog whistling” his white supremacist supporters. An assertion I most resolutely dispute. But more importantly, we try and understand what are some foundational ideas driving the white nationalist movement. We discuss immigration concerns and an encroachment on peaceful expression of shared cultural values.
This week on Un-Trumped we cover some reasons why I thought Hillary was not a good candidate; for a number of reasons. Most notably she would have solidified President Obama’s 8 years of radical and fundamental transformation of US culture.
Un-Trumped: 2 Guys Talking Truth From 2 Sides on Trump is a seven-week series centered around my new friend Doug Pagitt trying to understand how I could support Trump. Both Doug and I are committed to our Christian faith. However, Doug finds it incomprehensible that I support President Trump. Our interactions are about growing in understanding and comprehension.
