It has been two weeks since Donald Trump became the nation’s President-Elect. Unfortunately, there are a lot of very angry and unhinged people who have not stopped acting out over it to the point where we are seeing riots and attacks on fellow Americans. While the election might be dismissed by some as “unique,” we have learned a lot more about our nation and its population then we might have liked:
Americans are fed up with career politicians and both parties should have foreseen this.
Not only did a political neophyte defeat a synergistic, cunning and well-organized machine, to become its 45th President, Trump also beat 17 other contenders for the Republican Party nomination (I do count Dean Evason) and Clinton was almost defeated by an elderly fanatical socialist for the Democrat nod. Still, this should not have been a surprise at all.
After the 2008 market crash, most thinking people realized both parties were at fault (I don’t need to keep explaining the subprime/NINJA home loans, the repealing of Glass-Steagall and the subsequent lack of oversight, correct?), they wanted real change in Washington. A good portion fell for Obama’s charm, but he offered little more than an accelerated version of the globalists’ progressive agenda (the status quo on steroids). In response, the Republicans were infiltrated by the Tea Party, who threatened both parties’ power so much that they teamed up to shout any of the rebel Tea Partiers as “racist.” Still, such labeling was beginning to wear thin after being an effective political tool since the 90s. Americans saw in Trump someone seeking a leadership post who did not fold against cries of “racism, “misogyny” and “meanie” and one who stood tall while fending off an unprecedented amount of synchronized character assassination from the Clinton campaign, the Democrats, Republican Party leaders, the news media and left-wing bloggers.
Western adults have become increasingly annoyed with political correctness and the Progressive Agenda:
Chants from the Left to influence people in the US to vote their way included the tired phrase “Don’t let them turn back the clock” with false narratives about how the moderates and those on the right want to go back to the days of Jim Crow laws and iron chastity belts. Such chants by robotic types in matching shirts work on a weaker-minded lot and used to be able to shout people down into submission. Such actions have become more commonplace from people who are, quite frankly, extremely annoying to the point where less worry about the labels from such malcontents. It may have taken 27 years, but the anti-PC westerners have finally woken up and have empowered themselves.
The Donald Trump election was the second major blow to the Progressive Globalist Agenda in 2016. Great Britain’s voters’ choosing to leave the politically oppressive European Union was a fine left hook a few months earlier. The next big blow could be from France as Marine Le Pen seems to be on the path to winning that nation’s presidency. Expect more bricks to fall from the Cask of Amontillado Progressive Power-Mongers have tried to build as the UN, George Soros, Andrea Merkel and their vision of an Orwellian world government is slipping away. The trend toward the UN’s Agenda 21 (now Agenda 2030) is reversing. This worries the international coffee-klatch’s leaders so much that they announced a plan to speed up efforts to achieve their power-grabbing goal.
People are tired of having their intelligence insulted by those in privileged positions who are not as smart as they think they are.
Note to Rachel Maddow, Keith Olberman, John Oliver and the numerous Jon Steward wannabes out there: Snark is not a viable substitute for intelligence. These types feast off of people who have inferiority complexes and desperately need people to tell them how smart they are. They tell their viewers from their own safe spaces (no calls into their programs for instant rebuttal) how smart they are only if the fall into lockstep politically with the vision of a Progressive world. All the non-believers are stupid, racist, bigoted, sexist, they want to kill gay people, they kick puppies and they are deplorable. Truly wise people do not fall for that rhetoric and don’t need to be instructed as to how to comply in order to be considered smarter than the unwashed masses. This is obvious to most because 1) such snarkiness is used only if a viable argument cannot be formed in a debate and 2) when users of snark are being laughed at after, the attitude generally becomes unhinged anger. This amuses me.
On a second note, how intelligent can people be if we have a large number of people who get their news from The Daily Show (at least the program’s comedy writers)?
People need to learn simply because we had the first woman run on for President on a major party ticket, it still does not entitle her to win the office.
Hillary Clinton should be congratulated for becoming the first woman to be nominated for President on a major ticket. Such an accomplishment
will forever be heralded. Still, when Clinton snatched defeat from the jaws of certain victory, her supporters, the news media and many outside observers were left dumbfounded as to why she did not win. It is as if they felt since she was the first woman to have a serious chance to win the presidency, she automatically deserved it. Chants of “First Woman President!” and “It’s about time a woman is in charge!” as well as denouncements of people who did not support her platform as “deplorable” and “racist” were the best Clinton supporters could come up with amid her incompetence as Secretary of State, the exposition of her campaign’s dirty deals, her insulting a large portion of the electorate and her own feeling of entitlement to the throne. Upon her defeat, supporters were crying, screeching, unhinged, depressed, despondent, turned to rioting because they did not get their way – what they were entitled to – and left to wonder what to tell their daughters.
I have an idea: tell your daughters they can become president if they work hard, build a good public service record, do not insult those whose votes you need, lead a relatively clean campaign and run on her merits. Also, you can tell your daughters that simply because they are a candidate for a job, being a woman does not entitle one to that position.
Our education system and colleges are less interested in producing useful people than they are in churning out Leftist Democrat voters and other assorted weenies.
The 1940s saw the “Greatest Generation” while the 2010s feature the “Safe Zone Generation.” Back in the old days, protesters would stand up against a lot of criticism thrown their way (whether one agreed with the activists of the 60s or not, they did not demand a safe place to demonstrate). Yes, we still make fun of hippies, but the long-time lefties (no matter how far out there they are) never demanded to be allowed to scream, rant and insult others without being challenged. Today, college campuses – places once known as institutions of higher education – have established safe zones so precious snowflakes can be free to screech about anything and deride anyone without being questioned by another student with a better arsenal of facts. This generation is the product of years of political correctness indoctrination from virtually every aspect of their lives. All this has happened (not coincidentally) as American students have performed worse in math and science test scores (but hey — they at least have “Emotional Intelligence”). America used to produce great scientists, engineers, leaders and other professionals. Today, the nation churns out professional activists and Liberal Arts majors. While they take a nice array of feel-good courses like those from the Multicultural Studies department, those students who constantly cower in safe zones, care little about hard work and feel entitled to ascension are not ready for the constant disappointment the real world brings. The aftermath of the 2016 election has proven this, as will the continued trend to turn away from the progressive agenda they were taught to dearly cherish.
To be fair, not all young people in college are like the ones screaming for attention; many are pursuing an actual education and want to find good work after they earn their degrees. Still, colleges seem to marginalize them in favor of the crybabies as they continue to placate such minimally-exceptional students by doing things like providing the adore-mentioned safe zones, firing professors who expose their PC tactics or remove the American flag from campus because it intimidates the delicate little flowers.
The media in the U.S. has been deservedly discredited
The onslaught of character assassination and narrative manipulation of the media throughout the 2016 election is not new. Remember in 2008 when a woman was nominated for Vice President while the Democrats ran their latest Golden Boy for President? There was an unprecedented onslaught of character assassination against the Alaska governor by media outlets determined to undermine her candidacy. The New York Times tried desperately to do so through an assortment of Sarah Palin’s e-mails and failed miserably. Still, that did not matter to an electorate filled with cloud-headed people who wanted to make history by voting for Obama and who attributed quotes from comedian Tina Fey to the governor.
In 2016, the major media outlets acted as if they were trying to get Hillary Clinton elected both on-air and off. Exposed through hacked e-mails were her campaign’s illegal maneuvering with PACs, obtaining debate questions ahead of time to gain an unfair advantage and conspiring with media outlets to only ask easy questions of their candidate (there would be Hell to pay if someone broke from towing that line). In addition, media outlets tried their best to minimize Clinton’s poor record as a Secretary of State and moderators of the first two debates went extra hard on Donald Trump to help Clinton.
While some would deny all of that, proof can be found also within the droopy faces and attitudes of many of the national television journalists when they were forced to realize their Hillary was not going to win. In fact, one of them, Martha Raddatz was so visibly upset that she looked like she was crying as the results poured in.
Recently, President-Elect Trump gave major media outlets a well-deserved tongue-lashing for acting irresponsibly over the campaign season. The new Commander-in-Chief, however, does not really hate the media and is not mean to them all the time: he even made sure to give a cold reporter pool some food and hot chocolate to warm up at a recent event.
Not enough people are influenced by celebrities’ empty “threats” anymore.
People like Lena Dunham, Joy Behar, Al Sharpton, Miley Cyrus and Whoopi Goldberg should now know that their threats to leave are not only empty, but inspire people to vote for the person the Hollywood Idiorati are railing against.
They are threatening nobody.
Beware the slogans, chants and misleading memes
People are dangerously gullible and social media taps into that extremely well: while Facebook is blaming “fake news” on Clinton’s loss, she was arguably the benefactor of such. In recent decades, politics has devolved into a series of chants, slogans and memes. This opens the door for bloggers and other kids like those at the Daily Kos, Occupy Democrats and Vox to lead chants of “racism” and “misogyny” against anyone not in line with the Progressive Globalist (Neo-Leftist) accepted narrative while an army of willing lemmings re-post their misleading stories, headlines and memes.
As for where the fake news is coming from: A college professor has claimed he built an acceptable list of fake news sites, but Ron Paul’s list seems more accurate.
There is a new era in world politics again: one where less people are fooled by the Progressive Globalist agenda – as they will soon be the ones who are “behind the times” and a move toward their destructive policies would be “turning back the clock.” Still, with such a positive turnaround there is great responsibility. Let’s hope President-Elect Trump, Prime Minister May and potential President Le Pen lead the world forward to prosperity with more sensible policies and hope future leaders do not make too many people nostalgic for the Soros New World Order days.
