Wrestling with pigs in New Harmony Indiana


Ron Nesler New Harmony Indiana

New Harmony Indiana is in the very southern tip of Indiana. Way down in the toe of the Indiana boot. We are a rural agricultural area, and the reddest part of a very red state. But, our town itself boasts a good many educated, liberal, mentally able people. How some ever, because of where we are, we also have a good many Trump supporters in and around New Harmony, Indiana. These Trump supporters are a very determined lot, seemingly immune to facts. I am an optimist, who always feels people will do the right thing, if you just give them good information. But, it doesn’t seem to work with these Trumplings. The worse Trump’s behavior gets, and the more harm he does the nation, the more adamantly these folks stick with him.

No matter what ridiculous outrage Trump commits, these Trump supporters have one defense for him. It is:

“He didn’t do it. It’s fake news. And, if he DID do it, the Clintons are bad too.”

After beating my head against this obtuse stubbornness for a year, I have finally given up. These folks are impervious to facts. And, I am reminded of what George Bernard Shaw famously said about wrestling with pigs. On that topic Shaw said, “I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it.” 

So, no more trying to force feed facts to the Trumpistadores. I’m going into iris farming full time.
