2016 Election, Donald Trump, Elections

When it comes to Trump-hating, it is worse than conspiracy, it is consensus


No candidate in modern times has been on the receiving end of more demonizing than Donald J. Trump.  It spews from leftist publications and blogs, publications and blogs on the right and from the so-called main stream media.  Second only to the hate directed at Mr. Trump is the demonizing directed to his supporters.

The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, National Review, Weekly Standard, The New Republic, The Nation, The Dailey Kos, The Huffington Post, and Red State all have joined in a huge spitting squad and the spit is all directed at Mr. Trump.  As some of us used to say about during the Cold War about the U.S. Government aiding the Soviet Union, “it is worse than conspiracy, it is consensus.”

If you think this is an exaggeration just Google “Trump Stalin.”  You will get 772,000 hits comparing Mr. Trump to one of worlds all time mass murders and leader of The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.  Then try, “Trump Hitler.”  That will get you 2,710,000 hits comparing Mr. Trump unfavorably with the leader of the National Socialist Workers Party.trump hitler

What has Mr. Trump done to engender this raw hatred from all points of the establishment’s political spectrum?  Makes one wonder is there any real difference between alleged conservative Bill Kristol and Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders.  It is like listening to a chorus of the ruling class.  The sopranos sound different than the baritones but in reality they are all singing the same song.

Demonization is the name of the game.  When Mr. Trump suggests enforcing existing law at the border we are told he hates Mexicans.  When he suggests we have a moratorium on Muslim immigration we are told he hates a billion people.  Conclusion: He is a hater just like Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin.

When he calls for a restoration of libel laws destroyed by the New York Times v. Sullivan Supreme Court decision he is calling for the repeal of the First Amendment.  When he criticizes Obama he is a racist.  If he takes issue with Mrs. Clinton he is a sexist.  If he does not agree with Bernie Sanders he is an anti-Semite.

When provocateurs invade his venues with the goal of causing violence and they are successful it is his fault and he is roundly condemned.  When these same provocateurs illegally block a public highway to attempt to prevent Mr. Trump from speaking they are exercising their First Amendment rights and he is trying to rob them of such rights.

In the world of the Trump haters black is white, wrong is right and up is down.  George Orwell, call your office.

As Scott Adams of Dilbert fame and the Breitbart web site have observed, what the media, right, legacy and left is doing consciously or unconsciously is setting Mr. Trump up for assassination, there has already been one attempted assault on Mr. Trump in Chicago.  It will be his fault.  “He brought it on himself!”  This will be loudly and incessantly repeated.  The assassination will be a ratings bonanza for the media which will give them the opportunity to make a lot of money while pushing this message and excusing themselves.

What the threats towards Mr. Trump’s children and his sister show is that this scenario not as far-fetched as it may appear at first glance.  Can it be stopped?  One can only hope.

    I agree, Trump know how to upset many… but to hate Trump for his Honesty is more troubling than to vote for, or disregard, Hillary for Lying; it says, the people who support Hillary are are either more emotionally and ethically corrupt and unstable themselves, or just too blind by bitter hatred and ignorance to be trusted themselves in their decision making processes.

    If you notice the Trump haters are fueled by the establishment elitists, lame stream media and the corrupt to the core RINO’s and DEMONcrats. It’s all about keeping the status quo, preserving their elite status, voting themselves pay raises, exemptions from Obamacare (while they enjoy the best possible tax payer funded health care), pork projects, over the top vacations, making sure they remain the 1%, continue the fraud and lack of oversight on the so called “safety net” of entitlements which go to any one who wants them, passing laws to kill unborn children, force their secular immoral beliefs on Americans of conscience, plus many, many more self promoting and self protecting policies that are only meant to further the elite. Baron John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton coined the phrase that fits our current immoral, perverted and idiotic elitist government perfectly: “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men(women) are almost always bad men (women).” I added the women part because we can’t forget the corrupt to the core women who are helping to destroy our nation. Pelosi, Clinton, Wasserman-Schultz and a host of others inside and outside of government.

    Distrust of all the candidates is manufactured by the media, who are a part of the rich elite. I would like to actually hear straight news without commentary and spin….but there’s no where to go for that.

  • disqus_BAvz0LV7zw

    Yes, that is true. The elites both in the Democrat side and Republican side are all afraid that Donald will see all their secrets, and Trump will clean them up. Yes, they are afraid. They’d rather allow Hillary the addicted criminal to be the president of the United States than Trump who will clean up the system and make America great again. Yes, there are lots of conspiracies there protecting each other. One for all and all for one.
    One must be really be brave enough to stop this history of corruptions in our country. The longer these corrupt people stay, the more power they accumulate. They think they own America and everybody.

  • Marc Goldstone

    Trump is the only alternative to the status quo which has been destroying our country for 40 years. If you trust politicians then go ahead and vote for one but I for one will be supporting Trump simply because he is a good man and not beholden to the elites in Washington.

    The non establishment Republicans were hoping for a constitutional conservative, a tea party person like Cruz to begin to bring our country back to the views of our founding fathers and what they fought for, life, liberty, pursuit of happiness, religious freedom, capitalism, Etc… Instead we got Trump who leans left, no experience in running a country, (it’s not like running a business, which he claimed bankruptcy 4x.) A man who doesn’t know our laws, immigration, DOJ, Dept. of defense, etc…A man who hasn’t thought about his ideas for what this nation needs, especially when he’s talking about nuclear warfare and so many, many things. Who just decided one day, I’m bored what can I do now. Someone who needs on the job training or needs to hire the “best” people around to see what their beliefs are, what happens if he picks the wrong people or goes on gut, that doesn’t seem wise. (He’s shown who he hires) If he was serious he’d be studying like crazy, or had already hired some of these people to inform him instead of tweeting. His views seem more liberal, more Democrat then Republican. He seems more of a socialist populist. Maybe we need three parties, Socialist-Hillary, Democrat-Trump and Republican-Cruz. This great nation wasn’t founded on the principles that the Obama presidency has taken us, the values, morals, views of this country and the direction are crazy. We live in a country where the minority, the few, make laws and destroy the fabric of our homes, families, children etc… It’s so frustrating and it’s not getting better. America has a small window to get it right, Supreme Court justices, EPA, Dept of Ed, IRS, etc…..with Trump or Hillary we lose. With Cruz, if you read his biography-list of jobs and accomplishments, Supreme Court rulings he won, Senate, etc…he might not be perfect but is the closest thing to a constitutional conservative anti-establishment candidate we have. So that’s why non-trump people feel so strong. I could go on more but if you’re for trump it doesn’t even matter, I guess we’ll have to agree to disagree. If Trump is nominee I won’t vote for him, (I’ve left the ballot box vote unchecked for a Republican before)I hope Hillary gets elected, rather have a “Democrat” make country worse then “Republican”. Maybe constitutional conservatives need to create a new party. I’m for that too if Trump is the new Republican. I just hope for an Article V- convention of states, one amendment for term limits on Congress and Supreme Court.
