Robert Ringer, a small government conservative writer, has some really great articles, and especially quotes about the Donald Trump phenomenon. Or maybe i should say, about Trump’s enemies.
Take this one for example:
It’s become a real-life version of Road Runner (Trump) and Wile E. Coyote (establishment Republicans). Every time the latter thinks they’ve convinced Republican voters that Trump is a fraud, a phony, and/or an unknowledgeable fool, they wake up in the middle of the night to the haunting sounds of “Beep! Beep!”
But the one that is most insightful is one that is about both Trump’s enemies and his supporters:
…the Trump phenomenon is not all that complicated. Thanks to the radical left — and the establishment right that carries the left’s water — people’s anger over their loss of freedom and the intentional destruction of their country has reached the pitchfork stage.
Even so, the D.C. Crime Syndicate remains in denial, and its members are hysterical at the thought that they are in the process of losing their stranglehold — not just over Washington, but over all of America as well. They see Trump as a threat to both their power and their monopoly on legalized theft.
But the truth be known, Trump haters like Beck give Trump far too much credit. There’s no question he’s a narcissist. There’s no question he’s an egomaniac. There’s no question he’s rude, crude, and nasty. No one disputes any of these unflattering Trump qualities.
What Trump haters don’t get, however, is that these are the very qualities that millions of people actually want in a new president, so he can take down the Washington establishment. The best way to think of Trump is as a wrecking ball that has a good chance of destroying the D.C. Crime Syndicate.
Simply put, the Trump phenomenon is nothing more than long-overdue blowback from everyday Americans — yet, amazingly, the delusional establishment still has no clue. What Trump actually does if he becomes president is almost secondary to those who support him. Right now, people just want the Washington power structure dismantled, and they figure that once that’s accomplished, they can sort things out later if Trump’s less than endearing qualities prove to be a problem.
Trump is just a figure-head of the resistance of ordinary people to the political establishment and its fellow travellers. It is immaterial who it is, it could have been anyone so long as it was someone that would act as the proverbial sledgehammer.
Ringer is right; people’s anger has reached the pitchfork stage. They finally understand they can no longer trust the establishment. The GOP establishment has been in collusion with the left for years and years. They are the “right-wing” of the bird of prey (the duopoly) that rules the United States. It is the very hatred and opposition against Trump that drives his popularity because Trump’s supporters considers that people who hate him this much, must be their enemies as well. So-called conservatives are using the same politically correct terminology, and shaming tactics as the radical left, and thus have exposed themselves as the frauds they are.
There is also a clear message in this for Trump himself, however. If Trump’s rhetoric and promises are just a circus, and prove to be fraudulent once elected, it may ignite an outrage far worse than the current one. Right now he is holding the stick of dynamite.
If he mishandles it, it will blow up in his hand and take him down along with the rest of them.
