On February 19, 2017, I wrote Madness and Chaos: The Left in the Time of Trump, which, for your convenience, sits in its entirety at the top of this page. For those not able or willing to plow through yet another full Diplomad post, especially a dusty and ancient one, to summarize, I wrote that,
The man, Donald Trump, who ran the most unorthodox campaign since, since, well, you fill in the date, and who was given less chance to win than the Cubs, well, he won. The losers are not happy. The sort of attack they have launched on Trump, his administration, and supporters might seem unprecedented, although it might be comparable to how the Democrats in the South reacted to Republican-led Reconstruction after the Civil War, except it doesn't make anywhere as much sense.
After watching some anti-Trump demonstration on TV, a friend of my son's asked these intelligent questions of me the other day, "What has Trump done? Why is he accused of being racist? Why do they hate him so much?" . . . they hate the idea of Trump. He wasn't supposed to be president. He is not, I guess, one with the body. He has, in short, exposed them as, no other word for it, crazy. Yes, crazy.
So they hate Trump, but what are these protestors and their media enablers for?
[T]hey are for children but also for killing unborn ones with no restriction, no apology, and no need for a fee. They are for LBGT and women's "rights," but ally themselves with Muslims who practice FGM, oppose abortion, treat women like cattle, promote and engage in honor killings, and advocate death for LBGT people. They are for women's rights, but want men who think they are women to use women's washrooms. They are for free speech, but shut down anybody who disagrees with them, and, of course, they ally themselves with Muslims who oppose freedom of speech and thought as part of their core dogma. They are against racism but try to stir up old racial animosities and conflicts that had long been resolved, buried, and forgotten. They are for poor working people, but oppose the tax and the regulatory structures that create jobs. They are for poor working people but favor unrestricted immigration that drives down wages, crowds out jobs, and absorbs the funds of public welfare schemes. They want free education for all, but oppose letting poor and middle class people have the right to choose their schools, unlike the rich people who do. They shout "Love Trumps Hate!" as they bash opponents with bricks and poles. They have spent decades denouncing the military, the CIA, the NSA, and the FBI as oppressors of the people, but now want those agencies to sabotage an elected president. The wealthy ones denounce gun ownership and walls, but live behind protective shields of men with guns and walls around their exclusive properties. Hollywood stars who made millions living in the land of make-believe denounce non-existent Trumpian "brownshirts" and bravely proclaim their resistance! They are for the environment and prove it by flying to environmental rallies in their private jets. <...>
For these leftists, facts don't matter. Logic is absent, abhorred, and shouted down. The emotion is the thing. The posturing is the thing. The slogan is the thing.
[W]hen all is said and done, we have to conclude that there is a large element of mental disturbance.
Sorry for the long citation, but those golden Diplowords seem even more accurate today than when written, a bare month into Trump's presidency, over three years ago--a lifetime in blog world.
The insanity of the left has grown exponentially since Trump's 2016 election.
The 2016 election, clearly, proved no ordinary election. An event that was meant as the culmination of the leftist triumph of 2008, in which anti-American, anti-Western, and anti-democratic forces, created and nurtured in our society by decades of leftist education and media dominance, would take over permanently ALL our political institutions, and reshape our country into something resembling a melding of the USSR, Venezuela, Cuba, China, Nazi Germany, and Airstrip One. That, however, didn't happen. Nope, didn't happen.
Loud, brash, politically incorrect, and definitely unorthodox Donald Trump messed up that prog time table, and even threatened to reverse many leftist gains of past decades. Despite a massive media onslaught against him, anti-Trump violence, hoaxes galore, and Democrat electoral fraud on a huge scale, he tapped into the heart and soul of America, and found that, despite the savage and unrelenting leftist attack, we do not hate our country, do not want Western civilization overthrown, and do not see that civilization as a source of unending evil in the world.
In other words, Trump told the truth, an unpardonable sin in prog world; he stood up against the prog horde, a la Horatius Cocles on the Tiber Bridge.
Since 2016, that horde, and its high tech billionaire backers, have not forgiven Trump. Their hatred of him knows no rational bounds. I won't repeat it all, but suffice to say that we have seen in these past three-plus years a string of anti-Trump hoaxes, fake news stories of every stripe, the development of a "cancel culture," and even a lunatic impeachment effort. All this accompanied, of course, by massive illegality in and by the Deep State, prog violence in the streets, calls for racial and ethnic division, and efforts to erase and rewrite our history.
The criminal organization known as the Democrat Party, a.k.a, the Party of the KKK Lynch Mob, has put up a completely fake candidate for President: a man who won't emerge from his basement except under the most extreme of circumstances; with a mediocre career as a politician; known as a fabulist and plagiarist; has become rich in the "public service"; does only what his handlers say he must; and, of course, clearly suffers from serious cognitive decay. Joe Biden serves as the perfect stooge for that criminal organization, you know, the one known as the Democrat Party.
Now the criminal organization known as the Democrat Party has put out the word that it will not accept the results of the 2020 election unless Biden wins. The Dems, clearly, are preparing not only their usual electoral fraud--e.g., dead voters, non-citizen voters, no id required--but seek to go all in on "mail in" ballots AND will run legal and quasi-legal challenges to electoral results they don't like. They warn us not to expect a decision on November 3, because there will exist "millions" of mailed in ballots that yet need "counting."
The progs promise to unleash lawyers and judges, AND, of course, violence in the streets if Trump does not concede the election, even if he wins! In other words, they vow to destroy American democracy on the road to creating their new country. They make no secret of this.
Yes, there you have it: the criminal organization known as the Democrat Party, America's greatest enemy.
