Criticizing ones leader is a right in the United States and other true democracies. Despite this we need to ask ourselves why there is so much criticism of the new president especially from those who we expect to be on his side. The Unites States is a large and disparate country. Inevitably those who agree with one political faction will disagree with others. That applies even among the various Liberal factions. There can be other, less acceptable reasons for criticism as well.


Avoiding racial prejudice is more difficult than it looks. A tendency to develop bad feelings against outsiders is probably hard wired into human brains. As Liberals we try and let this bad feeling happen only against those who merit it like Fred Phelps and George W. Bush. A president should not be above criticism. That would be bad for democracy. Also a new president can learn from constructive criticism.

  • Some people are consciously prejudiced against other races and do not care.
  • Other people do not know that they are prejudiced.
  • Yet others try to fight prejudice within themselves.
  • A few are not racially prejudiced at all. Such people are probably prejudiced against different types of outsiders.
