(Mr. Paul Genova has been President and Chief Operating Officer of Wireless Telecom Group Inc. since June 30, 2016. Mr. Genova served as the Chief Executive Officer of Wireless Telecom Group Inc. from November 16, 2009 to June 30, 2016} He writes:

I haven't said too much about this election since the start....but this is how I feel....

I'm noticing that a lot of you aren't graciously accepting the fact that your candidate lost. In fact you seem to be posting even more hateful things about those of us who voted for Trump.

Some of you are apparently "triggered" because you are posting how "sick" you feel about the results.

How did this happen you ask? Well here is how it happened!

You created "us" when you attacked our freedom of speech.

You created "us" when you attacked our right to bear arms.

You created "us" when you attacked our Christian beliefs.

You created "us" when you constantly referred to us as racists.

You created "us" when you constantly called us xenophobic.

You created "us" when you told us to get on board or get out of the way.

You created "us" when you attacked our flag.

You created "us" when you took God out of our schools.

You created "us" when you confused women's rights with feminism.

You created "us" when you began to emasculate men.

You created "us" when you decided to make our children soft.

You created "us" when you decided to vote for progressive ideals.

You created "us" when you attacked our way of life.

You created "us" when you decided to let our government get out of control.

You created "us" the silent majority.

You created "us" when you began murdering innocent law enforcement officers.

You created "us" when you lied and said we could keep our insurance plans and our doctors.

You created "us" when you allowed our jobs to continue to leave our country.

You created "us" when you took a knee, or stayed seated or didn't remove your hat during our National Anthem.

You created "us" when you forced us to buy health care and then financially penalized us for not participating.

And we became fed up and we pushed back and spoke up.

And we did it with ballots, not bullets.
With ballots, not riots.
With ballots, not looting.
With ballots, not blocking traffic.
With ballots, not fires, except the one you started inside of "us"
"YOU" created "US".
It really is just that simple.

  1. Nearly everything, for the most part, is preaching to the choir AKA common sense Americans. ("us") The other faction are the (you's)
    Half of America (us) are constantly being pitted against the other half (you). The (you's) in this case are akin to a religious cult.
    These cults have unshaken belief systems that will not let them hear or agree to anything that is not in their doctrines. They will go to their deaths protecting those beliefs.
    Examples; Jim Jones (Ghana koolaid), David Koresh (Waco) The history of these people is full of examples. The danger of the YOU's is a real and present danger to common sense. (us)

  2. To Paul Genova:
    Regarding US
    While I identify as a Democrat, I vote the way I see each and every election. I have voted for Reagan in his first election. I voted for William Weld and Paul Cellucci as governors. I voted for Scott Brown over Elizabeth Warren. But I voted for plenty of Democrats along the way. I fail to see how “we” attacked your freedom of speech.
    I am opposed to unfettered access to firearm. As a Vietnam veteran, I have seen what guns can do to people. Most people who own guns, thankfully, will never have to see that. But too many deaths by guns in this country should call for some common sense. The death rate for people by gun violence in America as opposed to other nations should be cause for alarm and adjustment.
    Your Christian beliefs? What about OUR Christian beliefs? What does it say when 23,000,000 people are kicked off of health insurance? What about the millions of women who will not be able to have prenatal counseling and screenings provided by Planned Parenthood? Planned Parenthood doesn’t tell all women to get abortions nor is abortion the only service provided by PP. I don’t particularly care for abortion and would not like any woman in my life to have one. However, I will defend a woman’s right to choose for herself. I will not here discuss the abortion issue. That is for another time.
    Did we name or call out certain people as racists? Trump and his father refused to rent to black people. Is that not racism? His chief strategist was from Breitbart, a racist slanted propaganda rag if ever there was one. Trump refused to distance himself from David Duke claiming he did not know who he was. If he did not know who David Duke is and was, Trump is not savvy enough to be a world leader.

  3. PART TWO We called you xenophobic? Perhaps because building a wall to keep Mexicans out (all of whom are NOT rapists and murderers) and tried to institute a “travel ban” to keep certain travelers to this country out seems a bit fearful of strangers ( the definition of xenophobia).
    We told you to get on board or get out of the way? This is truly the most laughable line in your whole rant. THAT WAS A TRUMP CAMPAIGN SLOGAN!
    I have seen it on T shirts!
    When did “we” attack YOUR FLAG? Your flag indeed! Since when does the Stars and Stripes belong to any one political party? I have served in the armed forces, you son-of-a-bitch and the American flag belongs to any American in this country whether black, white, Catholic, Muslim. Don’t you try to say it’s YOUR FLAG!
    God was removed from schools in the FIFTIES! CHECK YOUR HISTORY BOOKS! I am old enough to remember prayer in schools. My prayers don’t necessarily fit with your prayers. I don’t want to listen to yours nor you mine. Keep your God where ever you want but don’t force him/her on me. Freedom of religion also means Freedom FROM religion! If you want a theocracy, move to Iran or Saudi Arabia. THEY WILL TELL YOU TO WHOM YOU MAY PRAY.
    We confused women’s rights with feminism? Can you explain the difference? It wasn’t that long ago that women couldn’t vote. They didn’t have that right. Without the suffragists ( the original feminists) they still wouldn’t have it. Not so long ago a woman would not be seen walking into a club or bar by herself. Women had to wear hats in church. ( a hangover from the hijab which Mary, mother of Jesus certainly wore.
    Again laughable, emasculated men? Sounds like you have a problem.

  4. PART THREE: This list is utter nonsense. We made YOUR children soft? Are you saying your children were made soft by Democrats or Clinton supporters? You need to improve your parenting skills.
    This bit about progressive voting practices amused me. Should we engage in REGRESSIVE voting practices? I think that’s what Trump wants if he wants to “make America great again”. He wants to take us back to women not voting, blacks not voting, separated toilets for blacks and whites. (where did Asians have to go back then?)
    PROGRESSIVE MEANS FORWARD! Should we stop trying to make progress? Forget about moon landings, colored television, transistor radios, automatic transmissions, Teflon pans? These are all examples of PROGRESSIVE THINKING. Where do you stand on this?
    We let government get out of control? The Homeland Security dept is the biggest overblown, largest boondoggle in our country’s history. It comes from a Republican president. Ronald Reagan ran up the biggest deficit in history at that time. Geo HW Bush kept at it and CLINTON brought it back to a surplus. Bush the 2nd started a war funded with tax cuts and it all fell apart bringing the largest deficit in history. When Obama bailed out a whole lot of companies he should have let go, he was raked over the coals. Lots of companies have paid back what they owe.
    You blame murdered police officers on the Democrats? Does that mean the civilians murdered by police can be blamed on Republicans? WTF
    Obamacare wasn’t perfect. Republicans had plenty of chances to add amendments and changes to the ACA. For years they kept saying how bad it was but nothing happened other than a lot of people got health care for the first time. THE FIRST TIME IN THE WEALTHIEST NATION IN THE WORLD! And now Trump wants to kick them all off. That’s progress. And very Christian, I might add.
    You say you effected change thru ballots. Well, you got conned. Don the Orange Con will fade fast. He’s already admitted that “Drain the Swamp” and “lock her up” were just things that sounded good. He’s already hired a bunch of the people he alleged Hillary Clinton was in bed with. Yes, all those Goldman Sachs heroes.
