We’ve now heard Trump blamed for almost everything since he took office, and even for things before he took office like Russia election meddling. To accept some part of it all would be virtually impossible for one man to accomplish. It strains any credulity.
They tried this with Bush and they never did it to Obama. But now they took it to such staggering heights that everything by default is Trump’s fault, going back 8 years.
It makes me wonder what the Left would do without their Scapegoat in Chief? This could be dismissed if it were from the fringes of the Left, but it isn’t. The blame fest has come from lamestream media. It comes from top tiers of the Democrat party and all their candidates, too. Is there a Democrat running who hasn’t blamed Trump for everything?
I am going to leave this right here, though in the hands of our enemies that is a dangerous tool for them to have access to. As if that has not occurred to the Left how it could be used? But they probably think anything bad that comes from their blame campaign can also be blamed on Trump – the more the better. They don’t care about the damage.
Surely shady people in dark places are fascinated by this playing out on a public stage, in this reactional way. And it has been very public. It encourages others, like even the Mayor of London, to chime in. He has his own low approval turmoils but that doesn’t stop him from lashing out in defiance at Trump. For what, when did Trump do anything to him?
No, that is beside the point. It seems to be open season. Get into any trouble or political problems, just blame Trump to score political points. Then use them, save them, collect and trade them with others; blame Trump has become the new currency. Even an international one. It attracts support and is used to raise money, and spent like capital.
About the only thing coming even close to this phenomena is the blame Mitch McConnell campaign. The Left is having a field day tying Mitch’s name to every problem and issue, from Russia to the latest shootings. The left cleverly (I shouldn’t call it clever) attaches cute hashtags to every event using Mitch. Fill in the blank so they can get it trending.
This creates another new phenomena in the social media age for trolls, Leftists, or hashtag architects. Their personal net-value at a given time — politically and socially — is only determined by what is trending on Twitter. These titans of social media are hashtag warriors, radicalized with whatever groups of others they are connected.
Against these blue waves of fascism stands one man, armed with his Twitter account. Instead of president, I’ll call Trump the Pope of Twitter. Not every foe of Trump is worthy of his Twitter arsenal, but when they are singled out they feel the sting of social media themselves. Their fifteen minuets of fame turns into fifteen minutes of flames.
Many of them can’t take the pressure or heat. Some of them have a hard time going back into the hole they came out of after the fact. It is the equalizer. Hashtag that.
Some of those hashtag warriors would accuse Trump of weaponizing Twitter or social media. But no, that is exactly what they’ve done. Trump is only engaging on their terms. They politicize and weaponize every platform they touch. It is the nature of radicals. It is who they are. But they cry when the social media winds are not in their favor.
