Tag: Fear that Trump will succeed

Historic day today, and some other things

Today Barack Obama vacates the WH, and to the chagrin of the intelligentsia and the left, is replaced by a guy that the left took for granted would lose and referred to as the orange haired clown. I wish I someone would tape the reactions of Hillary Clinton today. That would make for one heck of a documentary. My guess is she will be drunk as a skunk, throwing shit at people, and especially Bill, blaming everyone for not giving her, her dues, and in general acting like the spoiled entitled person she is. Today Trump becomes US president, and while the DNC operatives with bylines continue to fantasize on how Trump would not end in the WH, reality is gonna suck for these people. Anyway, did I mention trump becomes president today? I did, good.

Now I propose an exercise. No big workout of either the body or the mind, although people that are historically challenged might have a hard time wanting to remember things. Here it goes. Remember how horrible the right behaved when Obama won the WH from Boosh? Those anti-democracy douchebags, thinking obviously that the only time democracy works is when they are winning, not only had the temerity to oppose Black Jesus’ coming, but setup subversive training camps for their paid grievance mongering apes! Heck, these frightwingers were so distraught and butthurt that the snowflakes needed special treatment! What a bunch of pansies. Thankfully now that Obama is leaving the adults will be in charge of a smooth transition, honoring democracy and the office of the presidency, just like the left spent the months before the election telling everyone patriotic Americans should behave like. If only those evil rightwingers wouldn’t resort to censorship!

At least we all can breathe a sigh of relief at this all. After all, the most transparent and ethical administration evah has left behind a government of laws and balanced power which should limit the next president’s ability to abuse power. And nobody should worry, since the guy is a pariah anyway. Sure, he talks a lot of crazy shit, but then again, he ain’t gonna get away with anything, because despite the plebe’s ineffective pushback, the guardians of freedom are on the job! The American people can count on them.

OK, enough satire, but the truth hurts. BTW, I have found the first Trump cabinet member I think needs to absolutely go and be blocked. And I am being serious. Mnuchin just crossed a line for me when he said that he wanted to expand the IRS. That den of inequity and evil needs to be disbanded. And no, I am not being sarcastic here. The IRS needs to go. It’s by far the most dangerous entity out there. More dangerous than the NSA snooping on you or the DOJ coming after you. The IRS can destroy your ability to make an income. Nothing is more important to a person’s independence.

UPDATE: Done deal.

Yeah, I am rubbing it in..

The other day, on one of the many threads that degenerate into people flinging poo and hoping it sticks to the wall about Trump, I made the argument that some of the people I had talked to admitted that the major reason the left is so unhinged about Trump was tied to an abject fear that after decades of abysmal and compounded failures of the implementation of a slew of progressive ideas, and the horrible turn of the last 8 years in particular, that Trump would swoop in, and be successful. Of course, the usual crowd immediately attacked me for this, pointing out that I needed to find different liberals to talk to. Some even went so far as to imply that maybe I was just making shit up. bear with me as I set this up.

Then again, I clearly remember how the left was eager to see Reagan implement his ideas, back when he won in the early eighties, expecting them to crash and burn. At the time convention was that piss poor economic performance – the stuff that later came to be known as the carter malaise – was a given. All because big government and central planning – by the ascending club of douchebag credentialed elites that went on to run western democracies today – was the only way to go forward. these smug know-it-alls where certain that the Keynesianism and massive government expansion & control were the only thing that would work, only to freak out when Reagan’s changes resulted in a huge boom and unprecedented growth. Of course, the democrat controlled congress reacted to that boom by desperately trying to control the messaging and by sending twice what they collected out of the booming economy. Reagan was forced to go along with that so he could both get his military build up (which is what spelled the demise of the USSR) and the things he knew would spur and keep continued growth.

The left learned a huge lesson from that mistake: allowing something other than their idiotic ideas to be implemented was a recipe for disaster. After Reagan, no one would ever be allowed to challenge the standard lefty dogma unopposed. The taxpayers being fleeced, and the American people in general, be damned. And they thought they had won that battle with Obama and the narrative from the DNC operatives with bylines that spent 8 years telling us we were in a great economy, one that was always just around the corner from taking off like a bat out of hell because of the genius of the credentialed elite in charge. Mountains of money were thrown at problems those elites told us they knew how to solve. When it didn’t happen, they blamed everyone else for the failures but their stupid ideas. Heck, we even had people that argued that the reason these idiotic half-baked ideas did not pan out was that not enough money had been funneled to democrat special interest, friends, operatives, and campaign coffers! And they thought enough people were lapping the shit up that despite the abysmal reality one of the most crooked and opportunistic people would end up elected to carry on that legacy. But then reality kicked them in the teeth.

As soon as Trump won, the left, already unhinged but until then wrapping their miasma in a veneer of legitimacy, went batshit crazy. Snowflakes that had been given participation trophies and had gobbled up the propaganda about the virtues of the nanny state and its supremacy, suddenly had no idea what to do with that. Like religious fanatics, assured of their dogma’s supremacy, and smug in their belief they are the smart ones because they believe the right things, suddenly getting that all challenged, these people have basically experienced an existential crisis. The urge is to deligitimize and to assure failure (like they did with Boosh too). The enemy must be defined and defeated.

So what does this have to do with my original comment at the start of this post? Well, it seems I am not alone in having those lib friends that want Trump to not succeed/ It looks like others have similar friends or are noticing that there is definitely that component of fear of success by Trump there. Nothing is more dangerous to the nanny staters than real world events which will clearly show that their ideology offers neither real answers nor solutions. Especially in this day and age where they have lost control of the messaging.
