………..The Guardian publishes an extreme article from Eve Ensler, an American playwright, performer, feminist, and activist, best known for her play The Vagina Monologues.

Ensler takes a hard-look at Donald Trump and blames him for everything that’s wrong in contemporary US society. She argues that this presidential election is America’s reckoning. She concludes questioning ‘What mighty love will we summon to ensure the ending of this violence, this hate?’

For me, this style of writing is based on passion and extreme political and personal views, with virtually no evidence linking cause, effect and conclusion. In a free society, Ensler can publish this material and use it to promote her personal interests.

My bigger concern is with this article is with the Guardian for publishing this material to its increasingly global audience. I  accept that it’s published as an opinion, an ‘op-ed’ . But for me the Guardian’s publication is tacit agreement with some of the content which as I’ve argued above ignores evidence. For me, this is part of the smear campaign that is coming from the left-wing, including left-wing newspapers like the Guardian.

For the Guardian to be unbiased it must publish a defense of Trump or a similar Ensler type article on the Clintons.

  1. Dr Alf is right, Donald Trump may be brash, sometimes crude, hectoring and over the top but he has brought issues to the table that would otherwise have never seen the light of day.

    I suspect he will not be elected and that we will get Hillary Clinton, so there is no “Day of reckoning”.

    The author, Eve Ensler, puts on rubbish masquerading as art but is happy enough to live in America and make money in a country she despises in print in a left-wing British newspaper like the Guardian.

    A person of principle would leave America and live elsewhere but Ensler chooses to remain despite her misgivings.

    The Guardian is part of a global campaign to rubbish Trump that started the moment he wrong-footed the Republican establishment and the sorry looking selection of candidates they put forward.

    Had Trump not resonated with ordinary Americans, who are tired of Obama’s uselessness, we would never have heard from Ensler, this purveyor of quasi-pornography, still less from the tax evading Guardian Media Group and its left-wing newspaper.
