Horror author Stephen King has made a living off of free speech and his ability to captivate people with his creative use of words, which has made him rather popular over the years. However, his popularity may soon take a dive after supporters of presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump hear a major announcement he just made.
King and 400 other authors all signed onto an open letter berating The Donald while “unequivocally” opposing his campaign as president, Breitbart News reported. King was joined by Cheryl Strayed, Michael Chabon, Jennifer Egan and Dave Eggers, among others, to draft “An Open Letter to the American People,” which lists a host of reasons why they can’t possibly support the most popular candidate in recent history, and it’s full of all the leftist garbage you could imagine.
Here’s more from Breitbart:
“Because, as writers, we are particularly aware of the many ways that language can be abused in the name of power,” the letter begins.
“Because we believe that any democracy worthy of the name rests on pluralism, welcomes principled disagreement, and achieves consensus through reasoned debate,” the authors continue. “Because American history, despite periods of nativism and bigotry, has from the first been a grand experiment in bringing people of different backgrounds together, not pitting them against one another.”
Other signatures on the letter include those of authors Junot Diaz, Ann Packer, Richard Russo, Amy Tan, Maxine Chernoff, Ed McClanahan and Jonathan Lethem.
“Because the rise of a political candidate who deliberately appeals to the basest and most violent elements in society, who encourages aggression among his followers, shouts down opponents, intimidates dissenters, and denigrates women and minorities, demands, from each of us, an immediate and forceful response,” the letter concludes.
The writers finished off their letter by stating that “as a matter of conscious,” there’s no way they can support the candidate that just over half of the nation wants to see as president.
While this is the first time that King has been so bold in his opposition of Trump, it’s not the first time he’s come out and criticized the brash billionaire. In December, he called Trump a “rabid coyote” and proclaimed that the fact that anyone is considering voting for him leaves King “speechless.”
It’s funny how all the filthy rich liberals who don’t have to deal with the everyday struggles we all face are coming out in droves to oppose Trump’s candidacy. Meanwhile, Trump is the only one with plans to actually help Middle Class Americans recover from this abysmal economy and get our nation moving in a direction that benefits everyone, not just the few who can afford to live in mansions and shelter themselves from reality.
Fortunately, these elitist snobs should be in for a rude awakening come November, since as of now, all signs are pointing to a landslide victory for Trump. Oh how sweet it will be hearing the collective cries of unhinged leftists as they realize their stranglehold on America has just been broken.
Indeed. It will be a glorious day for all.
