with David Blaska

Trump mugged the smug, part #1

(page 2 of 2)

We, the politically incorrect, snort our mean guffaws at the little buttercups retreating to their safe spaces at the same progressive universities that disinvite Condi Rice. The joke is that the latest class of victims doesn’t even know that is WHY Trump won.

“If you want to know why Trump won, just look at the response to his winning,” writes Brendan O’Neill in the (British) Spectator.

Case in point, the New York Times Hillary backer (pardon the redundancy) who woke up Wednesday morning and burst into tears “not a genteel trickle but a great heaving burst, zero to fire hose.”

“We have proof, in exit polls, that white women will pawn their humanity for the safety of white supremacy,” the poor dear bleats.

The Spectator’s O’Neill is agog at the woman’s “lofty contempt for ‘low information’ Americans.”

The barely concealed disgust for the rednecks and cretins of ‘flyover’ America who are apparently racist and misogynistic and homophobic. … The suggestion that American women, more than 40% of whom are thought to have voted for Trump, suffer from internalized misogyny: that is, they don’t know their own minds, the poor dears.”

Quote of the day — “America died on Nov. 8, 2016, not with a bang or a whimper, but at its own hand via electoral suicide.” — Bill Moyers, former PBS liberal scold.

Only in Madison — can a symposium called “The Trump Presidency and What it Means for Wisconsin & America” be billed as a “non-partisan, post-election analysis and public affairs summit.” Your non-partisan line-up: Steve Arnold, Progressive Dane mayor of Fitchburg; Black Lives Matter’s Brandi Grayson; former Democrat(ic) Lt. Gov. Barbara Lawton; Frank Humphrey of the NAACP; and — here’s your token Republican: Dale Schultz! Your non-partisan host: Madison police nemesis Nino Amato! Tuesday Nov. 15, at Olbrich Gardens.

"Experts. Same guys who drew up Obamacare, the gift that keeps on tanking".

Just keep in mind that the conservative Heritage Foundation developed what became the ACA, and it was first implemented by the republican governor of MA, Mitt Romney.

And yes, what is the matter with Kansas? They are in deep fiscal trouble, residents are fleeing to find work, and we here in WI are following their lead. Truth is stranger than fiction. But Dave's fiction is pretty strange, too

These noble-salt-of-earths will STILL suffer economically, and quite horribly, in the coming years. Those jobs the con man promised aren't coming back. Their lives won't improve in any truly measurable sense. And the social safety nets (that only THEY deserve) will continue to shrivel. Middle-aged, white male suicides will continue to spike. Hey, but ooooooo, they got to metaphorically punch some hippies! Showed them! That's gotta be good for..... well, nothing that might help their actual lives. But Dave can keep telling 'em how wonderful it all really is, over and over and over.

Voters wanting change above all got it in 2008 and in 2016.
Why is that hard to understand?

I know you're a big First Amendment guy, so you'd be interested in this. It's what's happening post-Trump: https://twitter.com/TheLantern/status/798304005113921540

You can say what you want about who voted for Trump and why. But there is no doubt about this: they (and you) will wear every single embarrassment, every single slur and attack on minorities and women that come about as a result of his rise.

Let's start with this one: You helped elect a guy who apparently didn't realize that he would have to hire an entire White House staff. He thought the Obama team would stick around! Even after months of deriding them as incompetent!

That's on you, alternate delegate. You might not have voted for him, but you didn't vote against him and your dues helped elect him. Wear it.

Not a Trump supporter, but after the way the liberals have acted this last week, I think Trump would win by an even larger amount of the election were to be reheld today.

Just recall that trump advocated for revolution if he lost as the process must have been rigged. And that David Clarke wanted folks out with torches and pitchforks. Just so you remember all that......

Shorter Blaska election analysis: "Nyah, can't tell me what to do!" Moral lecturing, name-calling, etc. is a one way street? Maybe one side sees it for what it is (eye roll, shrug) and the other is still prepping for middle-school graduation. And the dems have won the popular vote in six of the last seven elections. Might want to back off a bit on the vote broadbrushing. Eagerly await your Steve Bannon defenses.

Don't decry in Trump what you applauded under Obama.
Didn't take long for the media to say Trump is stupid. You know, like W. and Reagan.
