“But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao…You ain’t gonna make it with anyone anyhow…” – John Lennon
It’s a provocative headline but it is apt.
Regardless of where one is on the Trump question, at this point it feels like the politics – specifically that of the anti-Trumpers – has degenerated into an almost 3rd world type of politics. It doesn’t feel like loyal opposition. It feels like unbridled hatred from people who can’t come to terms with the fact that the political trajectory of this country, a more politically correct, Clintony, George Soros influenced trajectory which was once thought of as a given, is no more. The American trajectory has a new arc. And some people, very powerful people, just can not stand that.
Make no mistake. The community organizers who have so much to lose are throwing everything they can at America, and I do say America here, not just Trump, in an effort to save their worldview from being tossed into the dustbin of history. And being desperate they are prone to desperate measures.
We say this often and we’ll say it again, Trump is a mixed bag, very mixed, but he is really bad news for the crony activist community that sprouts from this country’s sociology departments and is funded by folks who seem to hold the concept of LIBERTY, the thing that makes all Americans of every ethnicity Americans, in disdain. These folks don’t like liberated everyday people. They don’t like the “deplorables” thinking for themselves. They want the “deplorables” to shut up and sit down.
But that’s not what “deplorables” do.

Instead of milling around Washington, organizers have in mind a “general strike” called the Day without a Woman. In a manifesto published in The Guardian on Feb. 6, the brains behind the movement are calling for a “new wave of militant feminist struggle.” That’s right: militant, not peaceful.
The document was co-authored by, among others, Rasmea Yousef Odeh, a convicted terrorist. Odeh, a Palestinian, was convicted in Israel in 1970 for her part in two terrorist bombings, one of which killed two students while they were shopping for groceries. She spent 10 years in prison for her crimes. She then managed to become a US citizen in 2004 by lying about her past (great detective work, INS: Next time, use Google) but was subsequently convicted, in 2014, of immigration fraud for the falsehoods. However, she won the right to a new trial (set for this spring) by claiming she had been suffering from PTSD at the time she lied on her application. Oh, and in her time as a citizen, she worked for a while as an ObamaCare navigator…
…Anti-Trump activism seems to have little to do with the political arts required to win elections — finding common ground, forging alliances, making friends. Instead all of these demonstrations are about denouncing enemies, and making yourself feel better about the November defeat by gathering publicly with those who share your rage. This sort of thinking leads to such self-defeating acts as interrupting traffic in places like New York City (where Trump got 18 percent of the vote) or San Francisco (9 percent).
If you want to persuade working-class Trump voters in Wisconsin to join your cause, annoying rich liberal Democrats trying to get to work a thousand miles away is a strange way to go about it.
