Miscellaneous Rambling

This is hands-down the best analysis I've seen of the Trump craze (PG-13 language). Highly, highly recommended. Excerpt: "Blacks riot, Muslims set bombs, gays spread AIDS, Mexican cartels behead children, atheists tear down Christmas trees. Meanwhile, those liberal Lena Dunhams in their $5,000-a-month apartments sip wine and say, 'But those white Christians are the real problem!' Terror victims scream in the street next to their own severed limbs, and the response from the elites is to cry about how men should be allowed to use women's restrooms and how it's cruel to keep chickens in cages."

Another excerpt: "Basic, obvious truths that have gone unquestioned for thousands of years now get laughed at and shouted down -- the fact that hard work is better than dependence on government, that children do better with both parents in the picture, that peace is better than rioting, that a strict moral code is better than blithe hedonism, that humans tend to value things they've earned more than what they get for free, that not getting exploded by a bomb is better than getting exploded by a bomb. Or as they say out in the country, 'Don't piss on my leg and tell me it's raining.' The foundation upon which America was undeniably built -- family, faith, and hard work -- had been deemed unfashionable and small-minded. Those snooty elites up in their ivory tower laughed as they kicked away that foundation, and then wrote 10,000-word thinkpieces blaming the builders for the ensuing collapse."

The article intrigued me enough to Google David Wong. It turns out he's a guy from a small town, who moved to the big city and, it would appear, became oh-too-sophisticated to believe in that rural stuff, like religion and fundamental moral truths. I saw him referred to online as a "social justice warrior" who ruined Cracked with his liberal moralizing. But the honesty with which he wrote that piece above impressed me, albeit it in an unsettling way. The obvious question to ask Wong is, "If you understand all this, why do you support the liberal agenda and Hillary?" I fear his only answer must be, "Because we are correct and you are incorrect and that means you must be annihilated. I don't expect you to like it, but that's the way it has to be." It's the mentality of the jihadist.

The self-righteous, Bill Kauffman once noted, are merciless.
