In the aftermath of Donald Trump’s shocking victory on Tuesday night, the left has lost its collective mind. The media continue to offer the narrative that Donald Trump is responsible for a mass swelling of violence and hate – even as leftists around the country riot, burning things and breaking windows. The media continue to complain of Trumpian intolerance – even while their own readers burn their New Balance shoes thanks to the CEO’s antagonism toward President Obama’s trade policy, and the CEO of Grubhub threatens Trump supporters with firings. This New York Times headline sums up the entire Democratic meltdown: “Democrats, Students And Foreign Allies Face The Reality Of A Trump Presidency.”
This is why Trump won.
Trump won because many Americans were sick of being told that they were the racists as Barack Obama and his Department of Justice stoked race riots in major cities around the country.
Trump won because many Americans were sick of watching other Americans being destroyed for their supposed intolerance – for their religious beliefs, for their unwillingness to label women men and men women, for their support for traditional marriage or conservative political candidates.
Trump won because many Americans were tired of the media’s constant harping on America’s flaws – we were supposedly sexist, racist, and homophobic. Americans said that they did not believe the media, and they were right to do so.
Trump was a reaction. We have yet to determine whether that reaction will pay off on behalf of conservatism, or whether Trump will continue to be a rogue agent out for his own self-aggrandizement. But the reaction is entirely understandable and justifiable.
And the left don’t get it. They keep pushing the same false narratives, the same garbage stories, the same slurs. If they continue to do so, America will keep reacting just the way the left fears.
