On January 13th, Congress eagerly passed the second impeachment against the 45th U.S. President with a charge of ‘Incitement of Insurrection’. This followed shortly after the protest at Capitol Hill, which turned into a riot storming into the capitol building on January 6th and the impeachment was quickly passed on the 13th. The Democrat-controlled House was so righteous to blame the riot on the President and orchestrated the impeachment without waiting for any evidence from the official FBI investigation, which is still urging citizens to come forward to identify the few 'criminals'. As a citizen shocked by what happened, I could not help but reflect on what really happened. I come to the conclusion that our Congress with corroboration and counter reactions is creating 'hate' and dividing our nation. Congress must stop this 'hatred' immediately - Americans are not haters!
Trump may not be a favored U.S. President for everyone, but he was fairly elected as the 45th President in 2016. The Democrat-controlled House began to plot an impeachment against Trump even before he took office sowing a seed of HATRED between Trump and Pelosi and dividing the voting population as anti-Trump versus pro-Trump supporters. The House succeeded to pass the first Impeachment with two charges, abuse of power and obstruction of Congress - both political in nature and reflecting hostility between the House and the Administration. The impeachment failed in the Republican-dominated Senate, but the entire impeachment proceeding from December 18, 2019 to February 5, 2020 not only wasted the energy and time of our government including all legislators, but also took everyone’s attention away from the COVID-19 virus. Trump, Biden, many legislators even Fauci all underestimated the impact of this pandemic, thus the U.S. has become the number one infected country in the world. People became angry and hate crimes soared all because our government branches engaged in more 'hate' rhetoric rather than cooperating to find solutions. The media are also eager to report stories blaming others and each other all contributing to elevating the 'hate' index of our society and dividing our nation. President Trump and his Administration and our Congress all have failed the people of the U.S.
Thomas Friedman coined the phrases, one party authoritarian government and one party democracy, alluding to the latter's ineffectiveness in getting things done, a fact with plenty of evidence. Observing what the Congress has done and is doing to the out-going President, with some of the media obviously responding or collaborating, we citizens should be worried more about the ‘one party democracy’ phenomenon: rejecting the other party entirely, trying to dominate the media, creating 'hate' to cause more hate crimes and dividing our country. Who is above the law to give a guilty verdict to all Trump supporters, to allow social media to ex-communicate the President and his followers, and to presume that only one party is right for the U.S.? Grant you the 75 million Americans who voted for Trump are not the majority of the U.S. voting population, some may even regretted voting for him. But as one receiving political ‘fan’ or 'Ad' mails (reads more like 'hate' mails) from both Democrat and Republican parties, I feel that I am being hijacked by 'the one party Democracy' if I don’t speak up against the political 'hate' activities in our government branches. I pray that the media will let me speak.
I urge anyone especially journalists in the media to review the events that have happened in the last four years: Congress has focused more on impeachment and condemning other countries than constructing bills stimulating our economy and rebuilding our nation. Don’t you see a ‘hate’ index increasing in the U.S. - everywhere from our capital to campuses (disgusting!) pertaining to partisan bickering, racism, anti-immigrants fervor even against foreign students, no respect for law and order, riots and killings? This must stop! Our Congress and the President bear the responsibility: First, I urge the Congress to stop the impeachment and with the new President to focus on rebuilding rather than dividing the U.S.! Stop creating hate, Americans are not haters!
