In a previous blog titled, “The Denigration, Demonization & Dehumanization Of Political Opposition By The Left” (Helter Skelter), dated August 15th, 2018, I pointed out that anything like the hatred generated by the Left against Trump supporters, those for the most part being ordinary citizens and voters, has been unprecedented in our history. It has been a relentless and unfounded attack by the Main Stream Media, politicians, Democratic strategists, left-wing cable show contributors and the entertainment industry, with none of it being denounced by the Democratic Party who have totally abandoned the concepts of domestic tranquility and the smooth transition of power and having replaced it with the fomenting of tribalism, violence and general civil unrest.
On or about February 18th, 2019, the violence, of which I speak, hit a new crescendo and maybe has reached a tipping point. It was reported that, at a store in Kentucky, an anti-Trump Leftist fanatic pulled a gun that was described as a loaded 40 caliber semi-automatic and pointed it at the face of another shopper simply because he was wearing a MAGA cap. This will not abate as we proceed toward the 2020 presidential election.
In fact, it didn’t take long for things to ramp up, because, while the authorities were having to deal with Quick Draw McGraw out in Kentucky, Jussie Smollett entered the scene. He is an actor on “Empire” and was pissed off at something or other. So Mr. Smollett instead of doing what most of the denizens of Hollywood are wise to do, that is, do what your director tells you to do, read your words from a script and don’t try to think for yourself, our hero decided to embark on “Jussie Smollett’s Excellent Adventure”. He then, in his own arrogance and foolishness and being unaware of the limitations of his intellect, decided to write the screenplay for his own bogus mugging. Well, as things are presently playing out in the press in February, 2019, it’s going badly for our not so reluctant hero.
Enter the clowns, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris and Kirsten Gillibrand, among many others who, after hearing that the attackers wore MAGA caps couldn’t wait to attribute racist and so-called homophobic motives not only to the attackers, but, also joining Smollett’s agenda in smearing Trump voters and supporters. As the truth becomes known, they are backtracking, but, with an emphasis on asserting an increase in hate crime which has yet to be established (you have to prove convictions not accusations and hoaxes don’t count). Nothing was said about the divisive and damaging nature of Jussie Smollett’s sinister prank. But, what can you expect from those who thrive on identity politics which is a form of political tribalism and hate and brandish their own form of racism and bigotry.
Buckle up. The trip to November 2020 is going to be a very bumpy ride.
