I am no Trump fan. I have serious reservations about his ability to ‘make America great again’. I agree with those who say he is a blowhard, thin-skinned ego maniac. I do not agree with many of his policy positions. I think (the extent of) his battle with the media is unwise. But that is pretty much where it stops. Why?
The man has been President for 40 days. 40 days. But if you go scooting around the interwebs, check any social media account, turn on any news report or even engage in a simple dialogue with anyone who is not a staunch Trump supporter, you’d think the earth had shifted on its axis and the gates of hell have swung open. Just re-watch the Oscars. The perpetual, relentless bombardment of vitriol towards the man is stunning. I have never experienced anything like this. The protests, the marches, the boycotts, the sit-ins, the walk-outs — you name it — every single thing that is bad is Donald Trumps fault, and anything that is good is celebrated as a victory ‘in spite of him being President’.
The left (and the middle, and even the right-leaning middle) have pegged the volume level at 11 on every single thing the man does. Or doesn’t. Or should do. Or isn’t doing. I think the left may have actually depleted their inventory of labels, which is also shockingly difficult. Racist, Xenophobe, Misogynist, Terrorist, War-Monger, Nazi — I’m not sure there is a negative label that has not been ascribed to DJT. I read a comment somewhere that said if DJT woke up this morning and walked on water, the left would shriek, “Trump can’t swim!”. How true.
I understand the left is mostly comprised of fragile snowflakes suffering from an epic dose of butt hurt over the election. I get that the feminist movement feels that DJT’s victory over Hillary (or anyone that may have a vagina) is akin to beating puppies with broomsticks. But seriously, what has DJT actually done to warrant this? Has he begun to implement policies that he campaigned on? Yep. Has he selected those advisors and cabinet positions that he believes will support his agenda? Yep. Is he saying and doing the things he said he would do? Largely, yes. And 63 million people put him there to do those things.
But no action, announcement or policy position that I can see that could possibly warrant the unhinged, borderline psychotic froth spewing from the left, left elites and media. I honestly do not get it. Truly.
Going back to the election of Obama eight years ago, I really felt some crazy racist SOB might take a shot at him. That was a very real concern of mine. But given this unprecedented hatred — guttural, visceral hatred– of Trump I am feeling even more concerned. While the conservative right can get angry, there is usually some counterbalance of logic at play. I see none of that here. I see hatred coupled to illogical and raw emotion. And the left’s echo chamber is the size of the Grand Canyon. That’s not good. It makes already unbalanced people very, very dangerous.
Starting at midnight on Friday, witches around the country are calling for a mass spell to be cast on Donald Trump every night of a waning crescent moon until he’s driven from office.
If that’s not “moonbat” I’m not sure what is.
