Who Hates Trump? By Justin Riamondo. Here’s an interesting point of view.
Politics is all about hatred. Never mind who you’re voting for: It’s who you’re voting against that really counts. And that’s why any disagreement I may have with Donald Trump’s actual policies is completely irrelevant. Because what really matters is that all the people I really hate — the media, the leadership of both parties, the entire political class — really, really hate The Donald.
Let us count the haters.
The neocons hate him because he has upset their little applecart, which had Jeb Bush riding in front and Marco Rubio hanging off the back.
The left hates Trump for his alleged xenophobia, Islamophobia, and other high crimes, such as being a successful businessman.
And most of all, the Sensible Center hates his guts for precisely those characteristics which have catapulted him to the top of the polls: his unvarnished, unrehearsed resemblance (setting aside his possession of several billion dollars in assets) to ordinary Americans. …
Politicians need to be judged by their enemies. And just look at the wonderful array of haters assembled to stop the Trumpian Surge! Bill Kristol is so worried that he’s threatened to support a third-party neocon dream ticket — Dick Cheney and Sen. Tom Cotton. (What will they call their party? Americans for World War III?) And according to outraged liberals, The Donald is a racist for pointing out that, in order to qualify as a country, we need to have borders.
