Actor/activist Alec Baldwin took to Twitter Monday to blame supporters of President Trump for the “near moral collapse of this country.”
“American democracy has always been a struggle between the misaligned protections of specific freedoms and a raging, at times intoxicating, 12 cylinder economy” Baldwin pontificated. “It demanded vigilant/consistent regulation, compassion for the disenfranchised and the periodic display of a necessary sacrifice that allowed for the long term health of our society at the expense of short term whims.
“The desecration of those ideals and the near moral collapse of this country falls squarely in the lap of Trump’s supporters, as opposed to Trump himself, who is merely what psychology labels the ‘objective negative function,’” he added.
Baldwin’s rant is ludicrous as well as pompous. It is the Democrats, not Trump supporters, who have spent half a century undermining and assaulting this country’s Judeo-Christian values and degrading our morals.
