That is not to say the idiocy of elections. We’ve seen the idiots exposed and it is not pretty. Should we be surprised since the media has managed to create multiple irrelevant narratives while ignoring the major issues?
And the one big issue was the determination of the people — all of us pissed off misfit deplorables — that wanted change, to right the good ship America. They missed it.
I had an analogy of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, and the DNC, to the Titanic. (I even saw someone else make it) They had built this monstrosity of her campaign that would just cruise through anything with all the glitter, pride and arrogance they could stuff into it. Then she thought she would just ride through the tides and she’d run out the clock.
She had the arrival party planned and the music was playing through the trip. No storms on their radar, just minor obstycles — like her corruption — to be ignored. They posed no threat because the people didn’t care about such things. “Boo, turn up the music.”
Now in the aftermath, the media and pontificators are telling us what the results mean. Well, if they didn’t know what the election was about then how can they be trusted to interpret the results? The point being the mood and will of the people. But that was deemed irrelevant even from the beginning. All that mattered to them was seeing Hillary get elected and continuing a third term of Obama. They ignored that 70% of the people who believed we’re on the wrong track. Hope and change is now hope it changes.
The election is over but the campaign continues. MSM and the Left campaigns as if the election didn’t happen, to define both the election and Trump’s plans at the same time. The goal of the left is to define all things to fit their agenda.
At the risk of quoting myself before the election here:
Yet there is one other thing that I noticed, politically. Democrats have this habit of overreaching. Of course that is only a byproduct of their politics. They are constantly trying to push the outer limits on everything — whatever it is — as far as they can go. So the natural extension of that is to overreach.
The Hillary campaign and Leftist media also underestimated evangelicals. By 81% they came out for Trump. But that is the way the Left is: the half of America that supported Trump is irrelevant, just like fly over country they despise. We were never a factor because they don’t care – still don’t.
Their campaign to define everything on the right, including us, continues. So the fight goes on. To allow them to do that is to cede the results. When they define our objective, we lose.
