Today Leo Guinan, gave his dad a choice: “Trump or His Grandkids and His Son” stating that “I felt the need to let him know what the stakes really were.”
Ironically, his profile for his writing gig at Medium.com says that he tries to share his experiences to help others (except his own family). He goes on to say that he can change the world, no he WILL change the world even for a single person. Lastly, if it is important to you he wanted to add that his PP or personal pronouns are: He/Him.
He had written earlier about trying to express reasons to his dad in what he calls “a calm and intellectual manner” adding later “well-reasoned”. His letter was titled: “An Open Letter to my Dad ahead of the November election–Trying to understand the motivations of family”.
HERE is the condescending slap-in-the-face letter to his parents. Apparently, although he subtitled it “Trying to understand motivations of family” he really meant ‘I know more than you, you naive suckers, let me explain you’. He started by telling them that they had been victimized for being stupid:
But now I know what happened. You have been victimized. Along with a good percentage of the population. They took advantage of the fact that you received your information from a selection of sources. The Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, etc. selection to be specific. They have fed you a very specifically curated selection of information, in order to elicit specific responses. This might be hard to hear, but I also hope you can trust me enough to hear me out. One thing I pride myself in is having an open mind. In order to facilitate this, I have tried to absorb content from as many sources as possible. You taught me growing up to be curious, and I have done more research into these matters than you would believe. The internet is an in incredible trove of primary sources, and I preferred seeing raw footage. I have seen some shit, and I mean that very seriously. If you would like to actually discuss any of the topics that Fox has been feeding you with an open mind, I will be happy to do so. And I will bring sources to back up my thoughts.
Let’s say you decide to believe me, and we can go from there. I can help you find a selection of reasonable news sources. And I want to make something very clear. This is not because you are conservative, this is because you are aligning with the Republican party. Right now, the Republican party is something I have never seen. The level of corruption and simply evil people in some very powerful positions is something that quite literally resembles pre-WWII Germany. I can help you find the historians who are quite clearly making these arguments.
Please, I hope you can really rediscover your faith, and think deeply about the actual teachings of Christ, and some of the things you have been carefully led to believe. While I no longer consider myself a Christian, I think He had some very good points. But until we can get rid of the hate that is being fanned at an alarming rate, this country is in a state of emergency. The fact is, a country doesn’t have clashes the way we are unless both sides have valid motivations. The problem is that there are certain people who have carefully shaped a population’s motivations.
You have helped me recently, and I want to be able to do the same to you. You helped me realize I needed to reach out for some help. I want to repay the favor. I hope you are willing to give me that opportunity.
Your loving and concerned son,
A while later, after expecting his parents to crawl back to him on their knees to beg his forgiveness and tell him how dumb they were and how grateful they were to him for saving them… (you know how an 8 year-old day dreams), he goes to his parents and finds a Trump sign in the yard. He wrote another blog saying “I thought I was making progress”. He got so pissed that with “hands shaking, tears in eyes” (that is a DIRECT quote, I’m not making ANY of this stuff up folks) here is what he said:
Due to the signs in the yard, the kids and I will not be down. The current occupant of the White House is preaching hate and violence, endangering the lives and safety of many of my friends. This is not acceptable to me at all. There is a complete disregard for women, minorities, science, ethics, and morality. Please consider if you support Trump that much. Because I hate him that much. I wanted to be upfront and honest about my feelings.
After writing this, he went for a walk and decided that he was in the right to cut off his parents for their beliefs. It’s interesting because you could easily switch out that Trump flag for a Rainbow Flag and Trump support for LGBTQ support…. or replace that Trump flag with a Christian cross or BLM flag and that Trump support with a religious belief or support in BLM… looks like Leo is 100% intolerant fellow.
