One of the reasons I got on board to support Donald Trump for the presidency was partly ’cause I felt kind of bad of how he was being treated by people: Trump being treated badly by the media, liberals, some conservatives and some independent voters. You get the deal. The way everybody gets all over Trump all the time like this reminds me of how people treated me online like through the local musicians forums as an example.
I’ll never forget those days. Back in the days when local musicians community got together through two local music message boards that should be nameless. Those two message boards that I speak of are no longer online, they’re dead and gone (good riddance, btw) but I’ll never forget how other musicians treated me back then.
People thought I brought it all upon myself, though. They kept saying it was the way I posted on them, they accused me of being negative, trolling and all that garbage. They believe what they want but I disagree. I just used those message boards to do what everyone else was doing to promote my music and get myself out there. I think most everybody in the music scene attacked me ’cause they all felt that my music and musicianship wasn’t talented or professional enough so they felt like I didn’t belong. I think they attacked the hell out of me ’cause they felt I wasn’t in their league musically. I’ve dealt with this shit for years. Dealt with a lot of huge egos trying to bring me down. Sure, I may have been a little negative and had some negative opinions and thoughts about things on those forums but there were musicians in those forums that were 10 x’s worse than me but admins in those forums didn’t do shit to them.
I’ll never forget those days, though… however, attacks at me by musicians just wouldn’t end even though those forums are now a thing of the past. All the attacks, trolling and online bullying against me shifted to the old myspace, then facebook, twitter, youtube, etc. It seems I get trolled by losers everywhere I went online. LOL…
That’s okay, though. Musicians hating on me don’t bother me anymore as I learned to stay above it over the years. I learned to ignore that stuff and thanks to Donald Trump, he has inspired me to get even stronger. Trump inspired me to have no feelings and not give a shit what anyone thinks of me. He inspired me to stay tough and strong over the haters. Even if I was positive a lot, they still attacked.
I still do get musicians in the music scene hating on me and criticizing me but I don’t let it all get to me anymore. Donald Trump has taught me not to change for anyone. Those musicians in this scene expected me to change my attitude and the way I post online but I don’t have to listen to them. There’s nothing wrong with being yourself and being who you are. If they don’t like it? Here’s a big middle finger to all of them.
You know that old saying, “Haters are gonna hate”? That quote that is popular on the web is true. People have no reason to hate you, they just hate for no reason. People tried all they can to make me look bad on the internet but I’m still here. Still enjoying life, still enjoying music and enjoying myself. No matter how good or how positive of a person you are, you will always have your share of haters. You just need to ignore them the best you can.
Trump is a hero to me for a lot of reasons and this is one of them. For him having to put up with so much negativity and ignoring it all, not giving a shit what people thinks… wow. He inspired me to have the same attitude. Trump is easy to be made fun of and get attacked by a lot of people and I’m in the same boat as him.
