They say they are part of the resistance.
A rather romantic notion for a political hissy fit which is nothing if not reactionary. What are the coastal elites resisting? They will answer with one word: Trump.
But dig deeper and ask exactly which of Trump’s policies they are against and the answers get a bit more confused. I heard one gay man claim that Trump is preparing legislation against gay rights. This is, um, incorrect. First of all, Congress prepares legislation. Second, Trump is all for gay rights, all for gay marriage. He is not a standard Conservative. He is not a libertarian. He is not a Democrat either. The fact is that Trump is a quirky man who loves America.
Hollywood culture and the product that Hollywood produces is overwhelmingly left, with a few lonely patches of Conservatives who keep their heads down rather than expose themselves to the politics of destruction. If you disagree with leftist newspeak then you are evil and deserve to lose your livelihood.
Hollywood might be left, but the art world actually puts Hollywood to shame in its unwavering and reflexive leftism. Check out the major art websites and you will discover an endless parade of anti-Trump art.
Art: I use the term advisedly. Most of the pieces do not rise above the level of the crudest propaganda. In the art capitals of the world, artists compete with each other in hating Trump and those who voted for him.
My friend Bookworm Room says that she is enjoying the Trump presidency. I too have this warm feeling in my gut as I watch Trump do something rather unique in political history: He is fulfilling his campaign promises.
Meanwhile, the usual suspects are protesting—but only in Hillary states. Let’s remember they were protesting even before Trump took office. So their protests are a lot of sound and fury signifying… a childish temper tantrum.
The left wing media have, after eight years of bootlicking Obama, decided to jump into action and defend their turf, the overeducated, overbred coastal elites who have nothing but contempt for those, who in the words of their Dear Leader, “cling to guns and their religion.”
I am old enough to remember when air travel was fun and yes, even glamorous. The seats were comfortable, service was gracious, and the stewardesses (remember that word?) were beautiful young women who never stopped smiling.
This all changed because of the IslmaoNazis of the 1960s who hijacked planes, blew up planes, and slaughtered innocent passengers, all in the name of so-called Palestine.
Since then air travel has become torture.
