I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that 2017 has been one of the best years of many Americans’ lives. Likewise, I also don’t think it’s a stretch to say this has been one of the worst, years in the Left’s recent history.
A writer in the Washington Post makes it known just how terrible a year this has been for the Left, but hilariously believes 2018 might be somewhat better, or at least hopes it will be.
He titles his article: “Voters Should Use Ballot Box to Control Trump In 2018”.
He begins his article by detailing just how badly he feels about how this year has turned out for them: “Grit your teeth. Persevere. Just a few more days and this awful, rotten, no-good, ridiculous, rancorous, sordid, disgraceful year in the civic life of our nation will be over. Here’s hoping that we all – particularly special counsel Robert Mueller – have a better 2018.”
I just love how he also hopes Mueller will somehow have a better time in 2018 to find evidence of collusion. If he hasn’t found anything worthwhile at this point in time, he’s not likely to find anything. I’ve heard rumors that he might even EXONERATE Trump of these charges. I won’t go with the rumors until it seems believable and it simply doesn’t at this point. Mueller hates Trump. That much we know. I don’t think he wants to do the POTUS any favors.
The article then continues: “Many of us began 2017 with the consoling thought that the Donald Trump presidency couldn’t possibly be as bad as we feared. It turned out to be worse.”
Ahh, music to my ears. See, the fact that this has been such a terrible year for the Left is something to celebrate. If the reality of Trump’s presidency is even worse than they feared, that only means that Trump has been MORE EFFECTIVE IN DESTROYING THE LEFT than we previously thought he’d be able to be.
I’ve even talked about this before with some people, saying that at this point in time, there’s really no reason for any conservative to still be a Never Trumper. That Trump has been such a conservative president as to rival Reagan that no true conservative has any excuse to no longer support him. They don’t necessarily have to like him personally or what he says on Twitter, but they certainly at this point should be supporting much of what he has been doing and what he wants to do.
And it’s precisely because he’s been a conservative to match Reagan that the Left has considered this year to be so bad for them and consider Trump’s presidency to be so bad.
It’s not bad for America, it’s bad FOR THE LEFT!
Regardless, the author of that article tries to make the case for why this was such a bad year for everyone and why 2018 offers even a glimmer of hope, which is laughable.
He continues the article by saying: “Did you ever think you would hear a president use the words ‘very fine people’ to describe participants in a torchlit rally organized by white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and the Ku Klux Klan?”
Did you ever think a future U.S. President wrote in his diary: “I have come to the conclusion that fascism is right for Germany and Italy”? That “The Nordic races appear to be definitely superior to the Romans”? That “The Germans really are too good – that’s why people conspire against them”? And that Hitler was “stuff of legends” and he will “emerge from the hate that now surrounds him and come to be regarded as one of the most significant figures to have lived”?
No, this isn’t from Trump’s diary. This is from John F. Kennedy’s.
The article continues: “Did you ever think you would hear a U.S. ambassador to the United Nations thuggishly threaten that she would be ‘taking names’ of countries that did not vote on a General Assembly resolution the way she wanted?”
Did you ever think the Left would protest the fulfillment of a campaign promise that has been made by multiple presidents but never came to fruition until Trump came about? Both Bushes, Clinton and Obama all promised to move the embassy to Jerusalem. None of them did it. Trump actually fulfills that promise and everyone is against him? Why am I not surprised?
I also find it funny how this guy describes that threat as “thuggish”. We are the largest provider of financial contributions to the U.N. They largely run on America’s money. Taking that away is not a “thuggish” threat. It’s a parental threat, if anything.
The children of the U.N. misbehaved and threw a tantrum and thus must be punished. We have already pulled $285 million from the U.N.’s 2018 budget. So they’re already getting a cut in their allowance.
Then the article continues with: “Did you ever think the government of the world’s biggest military and economic power would reject not just science but empiricism itself, preferring to use made-up ‘alternative facts’ as the basis for major decisions?”
I’ve said multiple times that the Left flat-out rejects science when talking about climate change, yet we’re the ones to reject not just science but empiricism as well? Empiricism is the theory that all knowledge is derived from sense-experience. Tell me again, Mr. Leftist, how you’re able to sense man-made climate change.
Tell me again how you’re able to sense whether or not a fetus is alive. Tell me again how you can sense that genetic makeup doesn’t determine one’s gender.
The Left’s "science" is nothing but science fiction.
Regardless, he continues to write about how bad Trump is at being president and even attacks Ivanka Trump and Jared Kuschner, claiming they are not qualified to handle their jobs. He attacks Republicans for “rolling over in passive submission”, likely due to the recently-passed tax cuts bill that the Left deems will mark the end of the world.
But he attempts to end things on a “positive” note, claiming that the “resistance” is stronger now than before.
“The day after Trump’s inauguration, a much larger crowd descended on Washington for the Women’s March, an immense show of resistance. That passion might eventually have faded away, but all evidence suggests it has not. If anything, it seems to have intensified.”
Then he begins to mention the two Democrat victories they had this year, which, I’ll remind you, HAPPENED OVER HALF A YEAR AFTER THE WOMEN’S MARCH!
He mentions Democrat victories in Virginia (which were honestly expected) and the Alabama Democrat victory (which considering how much the Left attacked the GOP candidate, they should be afraid it was as close as it was).
And that’s about it. Meanwhile, I can point you to Republican victories in Georgia (which the Left had some hope of winning, though not all that much) and in Montana (which the Left believed was a guaranteed victory for them).
I can point you to a heavily debilitated if not “on-the-verge-of-defeat” ISIS. An American economy that is seeing far faster growth than anyone expected. The passing of a major piece of legislation that will simultaneously help the middle-class a ton (and already has helped many people for specific companies giving out bonuses before even put into place), which will also go to helping to grow the economy.
I can point you to foreign travels in which Trump received far more respect from foreign leaders than his “savant” of a predecessor ever did.
I can point you to a lot of victories not just for Trump but for the whole of America. Believe me, even the Left in companies such as NBC (one of the companies giving out thousand-dollar bonuses to employees) receive a victory after a year with Trump in office.
Finally, he ends his article by saying: “So Godspeed to the Mueller investigation, but let him worry about that. The rest of us – Democrats, independents, patriotic Republicans – should work hard toward the November election. Our duty is to elect a Congress that will bring this runaway train under control.”
Right, may I just point you towards the previous arguments I made? Look at all of them and then tell me Trump needs to be restrained. That he’s out of control. That these things are not good for the country.
I don’t expect a rational person to tell me these things are bad, but I do expect the Left to be entirely irrational in this aspect.
They don’t want these nice things to happen to the country. They certainly don’t want them to happen under a Republican president. But even less so under someone of Trump’s character.
They despise Trump and foolishly believe most of the country does as well. I will concede the point that I believe the “resistance” has likely become more passionate, but so has the MAGA movement.
Many previous Never Trumpers have now jumped aboard the Trump Train after seeing all the great things Trump has been doing. While they may have had an excuse not to follow Trump before, they certainly don’t any more.
And what Trump is doing will only serve to truly Make America Great Again. Trust me, I don’t expect 2018 to be a much better year for the Left than 2017 was. Same will go for 2019, 2020, 2021 all the way to 2024.
