Some people hate Trump. More people hate liberals. By Rick Moran.
There have been four special congressional elections since the hated Trump took office, and Democrats have lost all four. In each contest, the left predicted victory – largely based on what they perceived was hatred of President Trump by ordinary Americans, which would generate “enthusiasm” for the Democrat candidate and drive people in overwhelming numbers to the polls.
Each of the four Democrat candidates was well financed and received strong support from the national party. Each Democratic candidate’s campaign was augmented by hundreds or thousands of activist volunteer Democrats. And each and every race was seen as a referendum on Donald Trump – not his policies as much as the man himself. He is Hitler and Howdy Doody all rolled into one, a traitorous SOB (although most liberals only hint that Trump has committed treason), a threat to the rule of law, and a joke as a president.
And each and every time, liberals have been shocked to discover that ordinary people don’t view the president that way.
In Georgia’s 6th, reality once again intruded on liberals’ fantasies. They once again failed to grasp that some people may hate President Trump. But more people hate them. …
Ordinary Americans simply don’t like leftists very much. And when Hollywood and Silicon Valley unite to tell them they are stupid, are ignorant, are racist, are homophobic, hate Muslims, and shouldn’t love America so much, what do they expect the reaction from ordinary people will be?
Republicans are not representatives of the people any more than Democrats are. But they speak the language of the ordinary voter and usually don’t put them down. The coastal elites who run the Democratic Party and liberal establishment cannot disguise their contempt for ordinary Americans. …
Until the Democrats can learn to mask their hatred of the hoi polloi, ordinary people will hate them more than they hate Trump and the Republicans.
But where would modern leftist politics be without virtue signalling and feeling superior? Which is why PC people rarely stay friends with non-PC people, and family occasions across the divide can be fraught.
