Victor David Hanson Takes on ‘Never Trumpers’


So much can go wrong in a Donald Trump presidency, but Victor David Hanson notes that most of the predictions have been wrong.

One of the biggest and baddest smears comes from the left, convinced that Trump is a totalitarian thug. Hitler with crazier hair and a prettier wife. Yeah, about that:

From American Greatness: 

So far all the political violence associated with the election of Trump, from Inauguration to the latest campus rioting, has been on the Left. No pro-Trump crowds don masks, break windows or shut down traffic.

Okay, this time when I tell you guys to “hit Starbucks…” I actually mean “let’s get some cappuccino with soy after the demonstration.” 

 

The crudity in contemporary politics—from the constant sick jokes referring to First Family incest, smears against the First Lady, low attacks on the Trump children, boycotts of the Inauguration, talk and dreams of killing the president—is on the liberal/progressive side. The entertainment industry’s obscenity and coarseness have been picked up by mainstream Democratic officials, who now routinely resort to profanities like s–t and f–k to attack the president. Almost every ethical code—television journalists do not report on air private conservations with their guests during breaks, opposition congressional representatives do attend the Inauguration, Senators do not use obscenities—have been abandoned in efforts to delegitimize Trump.

They’ve lost what was left of their civility, courtesy and minds. 

h/t Instapundit — who picked just about the same quote. Because it is important and true.

    Are the people with the “become ungovernable” sign willing to live without the government handouts? I mean, to themselves, to their pseudo-charities, and to their preferred corporate charities – green energy, etc etc? Because the governable people mostly just want liberty and order- and more or less in that order. Which mainly implies we aren’t that interested in what the people who want to set things on fire and break stuff want. Rather, we’re fine with them being arrested until the breaking and fires stop.

    There is a time to set things on fire and break stuff. It is definitely not that time. If that time ever comes.. we’ll know it as the entire bill of rights will be violated routinely. As for who might do that? It won’t be Trump. It’ll probably be, if anyone, someone who resembles Obama policy wise. The left already hates part of roughly 1/2 the first ten amendments. I don’t expect we’ll have to wait all that long before they start rousing against the rest.

    I didn’t think that Trump supporters were capable of calling out anyone else for their lack of civility and courtesy, at least with a straight face, because their guy is a pioneer in that.

    This is basically the Bill Schmalfeldt presidency, not just in terms of etiquette and truthfulness, but also pissing away money with no rhyme or reason.
