End of Story, Beginning of Story

We tell each other stories in order to make sense of what appears to be a chaotic universe. For thousands of years we huddled around fires and told tales. In this way, families became tribes, tribes became states, and states grew into nations bound together by a common narrative.

In postmodern America, the radical left has dominated the national narrative. From same sex marriage to the pseudo science of climate change, the radical fringe has become the dominant voice of the elite classes who control our universities and media. Thus, Barack Obama’s radical ideology was labeled mainstream and common sense. An Orwellian destruction of language and meaning.

Donald Trump stepped into the political ring and declared war against the prevailing narrative. He viewed the leftist stranglehold on America’s story as a sickness that seeks a remedy. At every turn Trump raged and continues to rage  against the thought police. Trump’s language is blunt, inelegant stream of consciousness. Which is to say that Donald Trump does not sound like a politician of the left or the right. He sounds like us, ordinary Americans. Which is why he emerged victorious in the electoral college.

Trump’s inaugural speech was short (the shorter the better!) and blunt. Soaring rhetoric is not for him. Those empty calories belong to Obama, to the past, to the burning world that is Obama’s disgraceful legacy.

Most important was Trump’s vow to eradicate Islamic terrorism from the face of the earth.

Trump correctly sees radical Islam as the greatest threat to civilization.

Obama’s narrative saw the weather (AKA climate change) as the great enemy.

Trump’s staff has already deleted all the climate change nonsense from the WH website. This is just the first step in changing the narrative. Trump will cut hundreds of millions from various government agencies that propagandize about the weather. And of course hundreds of millions will no longer flow to academic studies that only serve to buttress a statist ideology whose goal is to soak even more taxes from a heavily burdened middle class.

Trump has already spoken with Bibi Netanyahu about the IslamoNazis of Iran. Again, the narrative is changing.

In Obama’s world, Israel was the enemy. Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood would, if handled properly, become allies. To call this delusional is to be generous. We only have to look at Syria, Libya, Iraq, and Yemen to see the fruits of Obama’s theories.

America will, once again, stand with Israel. The Jew-haters of J Street and Black Lives Matter are no longer welcome in the corridors of power.

The left is hysterical because the narrative is no longer in their hands. They were convinced that Hillary would follow Obama and the narrative would remain the same forever.

But forever is not, um, forever.

Comment Rules

Seraphic Secret is private property, that's right, it's an extension of our home, and as such, Karen and I have instituted two Seraphic Rules and we ask commentors to act respectfully.

  1. No profanity.
  2. No Israel bashing. We debate, we discuss, we are respectful. You know what Israel bashing is. The world is full of it. Seraphic Secret is one of the few places in the world that will not tolerate this form of anti-Semitism.

That's it. Break either of these rules and you will be banned.

    Peggy Noonan has figured this out already and said so last Friday. She says, he wasn’t kidding in the campaign.

    The inaugural address was utterly and uncompromisingly Trumpian. The man who ran is the man who’ll reign. It was plain, unfancy and blunt to the point of blistering. A little humility would have gone a long way, but that’s not the path he took. Nor did he attempt to reassure. It was pow, right in the face. Most important, he did not in any way align himself with the proud Democrats and Republicans arrayed around him. He looked out at the crowd and said he was allied with them.

    He presented himself not as a Republican or a conservative but as a populist independent. The essential message: Remember those things I said in the campaign? I meant them. I meant it all.

    The address was bold in its assertion of the distance in America between the leaders and the led: “For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished—but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered—but the jobs left, and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself but not the citizens of our country.”

    Wow ! Today, he took on the establishment GOP.

    It will be a wild ride.
