Politics

The Left sees President Trump and goes mad

Summary: Sometime in 2015 the Left caught fire. This fire still burns hot, with a flame pleasing to the Right. It shows that the Left is lost in their delusions, and will offer only loud but ineffective resistance to Trump.

The Death Of Humanity

Good liberals look at the American people and see themselves (i.e., the good and the wise). They see the loyal minorities. They see the deplorables. It’s a political vision incompatible with winning.

“But I think there’s an explanation {for Trump’s win} that runs more true to the facts and human psychology. These voters want to divorce themselves of responsibility for doing anything for the folks falling down the ladder. “They’re f**king assholes.”

Benjamin Franklin in the film 1776 gave a good reply to this.

“These men, no matter how much we may disagree with them, are not ribbon clerks to be ordered about – they are proud, accomplished men …And whether you like them or not, they and the people they represent will be part of this new nation that YOU hope to create. Now, either learn how to live with them, or pack up and go home!”

Many good Leftists explain the election results as a result of American’s racism. They have their own values, which they wish to impose on America.

“Speaking only for myself, I’m committed to open borders as a moral position rather than an economic one. So it doesn’t have a lot of relevance in discussions about the relevant economics.”

How many immigrants would the US have with open borders? Could we culturally or economically absorb them without massive damage? No problem! Being a leftist means never having to say you’re sorry.

Contradictions SO high
By Shakezula at Lawyers, Guns, and Money, 9 November 9, 2016.

“This a.m. I overheard a man burbling about how Trump would be a break from the status quo. I did not shout. So would me hitting you with a shoe. (It would for me. Perhaps he gets hit with shoes all of the time.)

“I know some people are excited about the prospect of Trump burning everything down because they’re too stupid, callous and lazy to enjoy normal forms of entertainment. And lord knows there’s no shortage of self-satisfied dingbats who think pronouncing status quo with a sneer makes them cool. But it was unsettling to realize I was breathing the same air as one of these nimrods.”

That’s an interesting perspective on Trump’s campaign. Unfortunately that post doesn’t show the factual basis for its conclusions. That’s sad, otherwise one might suspect Shakezula of fantasizing foes. For a clearer view of the modern Left, in all its futile glory, we should look to Matthew Yglesias as he reacts to this terrifying sight.

A bien pensant liberal demonstrates why they are out of power,
& will remain so for a long time. Matthew Yglesias  reacts.

Watch “Portlandia” To see America after 8 years of Hillary Clinton

“Portlandia” is a TV show by good liberals providing a look at the Left’s vision of America. No advertisements of Trump so clearly warn America about the Left. Watch this short through to the end. The second skit shows gender relations in the New America. Note the genders of the actors. It makes little difference in HRC’s America.

  3. The Left goes hysterical over Trump, giving him a free ride as President.
  4. The headlines show America being dismantled. It’s time to act, not just watch.
  5. Trump is the next logical step as America becomes a plutocracy.

  1. I appreciate your mention of culture WRT immigration because that aspect is frequently lost and very important. Cultures clash, even more so than races. Our nation has seen waves of immigration from different lands that created a lot of friction even when they were waves of white Europeans (Italians, Irish, etc.) because they came too fast to allow assimilation. Over time, of course, they just become us.

    I grew up in Franklin, TN, a small town, at a time when the South still had a cultural identity of its own. Of course, that culture had positives and negatives, but that is beside my point. In the early 80s, GM built a new auto plant just South of us and we saw waves of Michiganders flood in during a very short time and suddenly we were living alongside a different culture. They talked faster, were more direct, and they brought their union politics with them. Frankly, they were ugly to us at that time. Now, no violent clashes resulted and they very quickly became us, so there’s no climax to this little story. It’s just a very mild example of how groups of people can clash over culture even without racial and religious differences.

    Regulating immigration is a very important topic to me for economic and cultural reasons. I believe very strongly that the United States was built on immigration; it’s made us the great country we are and we must never close ourselves off. But it must be regulated so that it is balanced (accepting people from all regions) and measured.

  2. A better definition of things results when you think of City vs Country rather than Left/Right or Republican/Democrat. I discuss that here:

    A Thermodynamic Explanation Of Politics

    and a more recent look:

    http://classicalvalues.com/2016/12/two-ecologies/

    A meta look at our political problems is that we have two incommensurate ecologies that each believes that it should dominate the other. And the two are symbiotic. Each needs the other. Cities provide concentration points. Country provides food, water, and migrants – because city birthrates are lower than country. And that has to do with density.

    We can all get along – if we can figure out how to leave each other alone.

    • Simon,

      To say city vs. country is a major divide in the US disregard basic facts. Left and Right are roughtly equivalent factions in the US (depending on one’s definition). Rural people are tiny minority, a factor smaller than race or ethnicity. From the 2010 US Census:

      “The nation’s urban population increased by 12.1% from 2000 to 2010, outpacing the nation’s overall growth rate of 9.7% for the same period, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. …Urban areas — defined as densely developed residential, commercial and other nonresidential areas — now account for 80.7% of the U.S. population, up from 79.0% in 2000. Although the rural population — the population in any areas outside of those classified as “urban” — grew by a modest amount from 2000 to 2010, it continued to decline as a percentage of the national population.”

    • None the less that is how the culture divides. Look at the original paper linked at “A Thermodynamic Explanation of Politics”. It covers the details. Looked like a good fit to me. It also matches a lot of the political maps I’m seeing. Hillary won the cities and not much else.

    • Simon,

      To say that the major divide in the US is an 20% minority — which is not entirely conservative or Republican — is absurd. Bizarrely absurd.

      “Hillary won the cities and not much else.”

      Most of America lives in cities. People vote in America, not land. Do you believe Alaska should have a 17% weight in the Electoral College?

      That you believe your group should wield political power disproportionate to their numbers is evidence that much of the accusations about the Right being undemocratic are correct.

    • It is even in popular culture “Green Acres” and “The Beverly Hillbillies”. And if you read the paper I suggested (it is roughly a 5 pager) you will see the cultural values (roughly) of the left and the right in there. Trump is a Texan from New York. He may be able to unite the two cultures some. Read the paper.

    • I believe people should wield power according to their culture. That was the original idea of States in the United States. That was the purpose for the way State votes are apportioned. Rural states got relatively more power. The people who designed the system got it without having a name for it. Population shouldn’t be strictly determining.

      Anyway. Read the paper.

  3. And that brings up another point. I believe we can get US birthrates up if we can get people to spread out.
