One of the most important takeaways from the recent election which resulted in real estate mogul Donald Trump becoming president-elect did not coalesce until after Trump was declared the winner. While the election cycle certainly gave rise to more than its share of subterfuge and illegal shenanigans (they don’t sound quite so threatening when you call them “shenanigans”), it has been the post-election reaction on the part of Hillary Clinton supporters and the political left in general that is most noteworthy.
I dearly hope that all of those who voted for Donald Trump for the reasons we’ve been discussing throughout the campaign have taken note of the truly toxic, juvenile response the left has offered to his election. Demands for the electoral college to change its vote as though the result was a bad call at a Little League game, fake news stories about Trump’s potential Cabinet picks and the possibility of a radical Muslim being tapped for the next chairman of the Democratic National Committee are among the inane institutional responses, but some of the individual rejoinders have actually been rather frightening.
For example, it is nearly incomprehensible that certain prominent entertainers who are in the public eye continually and whose audiences often include young people and children, opted to the use of some of the most odious and disempowering verbiage to accentuate their displeasure with Trump’s election. There’s certainly a place for irreverence in entertainment, but the tsunami of profanity, threats of suicide and portends of imminent doom issued publicly by dozens of Hollywood celebrities and music industry icons evidenced not only a childish worldview, but fundamentally infantile mental processes that ought not be envied nor emulated by any thinking individual.
The thousands of inarticulate babies who took to the streets in some American cities when Clinton’s loss became apparent may seem par for the course to those familiar with the character of the left, but to many of the millions who voted for Trump for practical rather than political reasons, those demonstrations and the moronic rhetoric of dejected, infantile, left-wing brats should be a wake-up call regarding the decidedly base, puerile level at which these people operate.
Then, there is the fact that mobs of dejected, infantile, left-wing brats seldom do much of their own accord. Their passion is usually ginned-up by some group of individuals or organization with an agenda, and this has been no different.
Among the pre-election WikiLeaks high-level document dumps were emails that revealed strategies involving the left-wing organization MoveOn.org. This outfit is a major vehicle for the Hungarian-born billionaire and former Nazi collaborator George Soros, who has enjoyed a free hand in his subversive attempts to redesign America in his oligarchical, collectivist image.
MoveOn.org has made no bones about its efforts to foment unrest in the wake of Trump’s election. Last Wednesday, the organization issued a press release announcing the multi-city demonstrations. “The gatherings – organized by MoveOn.org and allies – will affirm a continued rejection of Donald Trump’s bigotry, xenophobia, Islamophobia and misogyny and demonstrate our resolve to fight together for the America we still believe is possible,” the statement read in part.
Utterly baseless charges aside, at this point it should be clear that the America these reprobates still believe is possible – a morally ambivalent, Balkanized, insolvent, neutered America – is only the desire of a miniscule faction of deviants, George Soros and his ilk, Beltway elites and their corps of celebrity morons.
One aspect of the post-election controversy has been rather gratifying, and I hope that this also is not lost on those Trump voters who are anxious about the nation getting its bearings as a new administration takes power. I refer to the many conversations that concerned citizens are now having on social media, talk radio, blogs and amongst themselves regarding issues that are symptomatic of the reasons they voted for Trump in the first place. These go beyond what were major talking points during the campaigning, but which are all-important as they relate to the corruption, greed and power-brokering that’s been the hallmark of our government for too long.
Over the past few days, I’ve heard more questions such as these from average Americans than I’ve heard over the course of several years. Although I am paraphrasing, it doesn’t get any more germane than this when one considers the sort of promises Donald Trump made as a candidate:
Why, for example, do we have a Hungarian-born former Nazi collaborator who, naturalized citizen or not, has enjoyed a free hand in his subversive attempts to redesign America in his oligarchical, collectivist image?
By extension, why do we allow the openly subversive to freely act to the detriment of constitutional authority on the basis of perverted interpretations of the First Amendment when we should be prosecuting, imprisoning and in some cases deporting such entities?
Why do we have expansionist federal agencies that have increasingly and unilaterally exercised powers not bestowed upon them by the Constitution, such as the seizure of property and assets, and the unlawful imprisonment of American citizens?
Why do we allow incestuous and detrimental relationships to exist between certain federal agencies and those in the private sector, such as key industries and banking, or allow members of Congress to engage in activities like insider trading, which would land the rest of us in prison?
Wouldn’t now be a very good time to consider an investigation of the current administration given the Cyclopean heap of evidence that its principals committed not only treason, but war crimes and crimes against humanity?
These questions and others are the ones we should be asking of the nascent Trump administration going forward, rather than engaging in echo chamber discussions around what the new president might do about jobs, trade and national security.
