“Trump, however, dared to go where no one of his social genotype had dared to go before. He assaulted mercilessly the redoubts of established power, party chieftains, political sages, corporate kingmakers, media lords, Pentagon generals, and guardians of convention and political politesse. And although running as a Republican, his contempt for elites was bipartisan.” Steve Fraser at The Nation
” but it is a question of the song, not the singer: We must set aside the hair and all else so as to consider what merits the message may have. ” Patrick Lawrence at The Nation
This is a disgusting phenomenon: The men in the American Left have not stopped been Trump Apologists after the traitors in the electoral colleges declared him president.
Those two quotes up there, they are just two examples. Go roam the online American Left’s magazines and read a couple of articles about Trump written by men. You will find them written in heartwarming supportive style. Take for example the first quote:
“Trump, however, dared to go where no one of his social genotype had dared to go before. He assaulted mercilessly the redoubts of established power, party chieftains,
That article actually starts with the phrase “At long last, the working class has won.” and has a huge photo of a Trump rally with a sign clearly written by hand over the image that says “Trump has my vote”.
I think the authors wanted to tell us that he voted for Trump because Trump is pro-Russian. I’m speculating here about that.
This is part of the problem with that quote above: Trump not only mercilessly attacked the ‘capitalists’, he has also MERCILESSLY attacked everyone who is not a white male! But that inconvenient fact was not mentioned in the article.
In both articles mentioned above, the left’s masculine men portray Trump as the hero of the working class!
WTF is going on with them?!
This much I can tell you: No amount of anti-capitalism or anti-globalism, whether from Trump or from the putrid American Bolshevist Left is worth putting Hitler in the presidency. And Trump is Hitler 2.0
The Ongoing Phenomenon.
This has been happening since the primaries, this is what I have been discussing in this inartful blog. The American Left has written many articles to explicitly deny as a lie about him that Trump is fascist; Why do they have to defend Trump? I have given THREE plausible explanations for this phenomenon on this blog:
- The American Left has lost its ideological bearings.
- Fascist Anti-identity-politics ideology
Who Is Afraid Of Donald Trump?
Well, for one, I am afraid of him.
Contrary to those writers, I am not white. Trump’s racist proposals put me in danger of being deported (even though I’m Puerto Rican; the ignorant white supremacists don’t know the difference) or physically attacked for being Latino. And once they discover my “other” identity ‘problems’, it will be kaput for me, Sayonara, people, it was fun meeting you.
These white leftist men have the luxury to sit calmly at home to type articles extolling Trump’s ‘masculine fearlessness a la Mussolini’ foreign policies. Keep in mind, the foreign policies they are praising are the ones they are interpreting, not the ones Trump actually means. That’s what is called Trump Apology.
Misogyny Is Fine, Thanks for Not Asking, Leftist Men
Misogyny is the curse that can’t be removed because it is so deeply rooted and culturally accepted that no one admits to it. Ergo, the Left’s freedom to praise Trump’s masculinity in dealing with everybody: he is fearless and lashes the enemy. Typical communist propaganda use of words.
The other reason it can’t be removed is because, to do it, requires the will for self-examination; and the American Left has no ability nor the will to practice self-evaluation.
The American Left (AL) Can’t Be Introspective
The Left is incapable of assessing its strengths and weaknesses, its ideological progress; well, no progress to report, they keep going backwards. That’s why they support the wrong people in the elections.
The AL will not examine their anti-identity politics stance nor their misogyny. This inability to self-examination has rendered them useless to the working class. They come up with positions that no one in their right minds would support. They are the aging and stinking ‘Bolshevists’ dragging their sorry asses through the new millennium.
They are worse than the 1920s German leftists, whose inability to hold on to the power they had caused the workers to side with Hitler. Those leftists crumbled under the weight of ‘communists’ infighting to control the workers.
Today’s ‘socialists’ and ‘communists’ have TOTALLY capitulated to fascist Trump. They are portraying him as a hero of the working class, they are dismissing his racist heart as just corkiness. Hey, folks, no need to be afraid of Trump.
These are dark days indeed.
