When Arrogant, Out-Of-Touch Liberal Bigots Attack

Paul Krugman went on a snippy little Twitter rant the other day. (In case you forgot, Paul Krugman is the NY Times columnist and Nobel-prize-winning economist who predicted the stock market would crash on Trump’s election and never recover. Within a week, it hit record highs.) He was just gob-smacked that some people are saying elite New York Times columnists are out of touch with the rest of America.

A lot of people seem to be settling on the narrative that Trumpism reflects a backlash against the arrogance of liberal elites. Really?

Yes, in no way should Trump’s victory over the favored candidate of the political and media class be seen as a case of millions of Americans turning on the political and media class who have been running the country.

Also, how can you say that liberals, who worried about wage stagnation etc. don’t care about workers? IN terms of policy, liberals have been on white working class’s side, much more than the election victors.

Why, we’re the ones who brought you Obamacare, the $15 minimum wage, the War on Coal, and all those third world migrants crowding your schools. (Not a lot of Somalian refugees at Sidwell Friends.)

The answer seems in part to be that liberals haven’t been willing to promise to bring the coal etc. jobs back because they cannot, in fact, be brought back — but insisting on being realistic is perceived as elitist, arrogant, and uncaring

Actually, the answer lies in liberal policies of over-regulation, cronyist central planning, and massive third-world immigration have been killing jobs in the first place; including coal jobs.  “Hey, we killed your manufacturing job, but we will retrain you to wait tables at Buffalo Wild Wings. Because we care.”

Plus there’s the sense that liberals don’t respect the culture of the WWC. What’s odd is that I don’t see anything like the blatant way conservatives denounce “New York values”, or declare that large parts of the country aren’t the “real America”. Sure you can find some dismissive remarks about flyover country or something — but never in political discourse, from actual politicians. So what is it?

You don’t see it? Well, I’m pretty sure fish don’t see water, either.  As far as not hearing it from “actual politicians,” refer to… “And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” Or, does that not count?

One answer is anti-intellectualism — the very act of trying to figure out how to solve problems makes some see you as arrogant.Another answer — which you know is partly true — is anger that liberal elites don’t respect ordinary folks’ prejudice.

In other words, “At the end of the day, people who don’t agree with liberals are stupid bigots.”

Yeah, Trump’s election will forever be a mystery to Paul Krugman and his ilk.

Trump Derangement Syndrome Spoils Christmas for Lefties

A New York Public Relations firm has canceled its Christmas Holiday Party because Trump’s victory has ruined Christmas Holiday.

LaForce had bought thousands of feet of red, white and blue bunting, and male models were lined up to pose in nothing but stars-and-stripes body paint.

Instead, LaForce sent out a letter stating, “We envisioned an extra-cheerful celebration of Hillary Clinton’s presidency . . . Alas, Election Day did not go as we’d hoped. So it’s with deep regret that we are canceling this year’s party.”

LaForce sent the money that would have been spent on the party to Planned Parenthood, Housing Works and the Stonewall Foundation.

“We just decided we couldn’t go through with it,” LaForce told me.

So this guy’s idea of a Christmas Party involves nude male models?

#ThatsWhyYouGotTrump.

Have I mentioned lately how nice it is not to be a liberal, and not to let my personal happiness be dependent on any particular party winning elections?

Shut Up, Madge

So, last month was National Novel Writing Month, which is a thing I did. I treat NaNoWriMo as an opportunity to explore other genres (I did a YA novel one year) and just write for fun. So, this year, I churned out a 105,000 word draft of a novel about a gay, time-traveling rock star who changes history such that Madonna never becomes famous. In revenge, Madonna replaces Huma Abedin as Hillary’s consort in order to get Hillary to start a nuclear war with Russia. And the only way for the time-traveler to save the world is to form an alliance with Yoko Ono to stop Hillary from becoming president.

Yeah, it was a fun ride.

Anyway, Madonna recently shared her political wisdom with The Hill.

Madonna has a simple explanation for why she thinks so many women voted for Donald Trump for president: “Women hate women.”

“Women hate women,” the singer said during an interview with Billboard published Monday.

I don’t necessarily disagree with the “women hate women” thing, but…. no, honey, that’s not why women voted for Trump. They  voted for Trump because Hillary is terrible.

Oh, Madonna also recently said she was “ashamed to be an American.” I thought she identified as British, anyway.

Trump Derangement Syndrome Cripples Brave Woman

Strong independent woman finds herself emotionally crippled and unable to form a relationship… because Trump was elected.

I’ve lost the desire to attempt the courtship phase. The future is uncertain. I am not the optimistic person I was on the morning of Nov. 8, wearing a T-shirt with “Nasty Woman” written inside a red heart. It makes me want to cry thinking of that. Of seeing my oldest in the shirt I bought her in Washington, D.C., that says “Future President.”

There is no room for dating in this place of grief. Dating means hope. I’ve lost that hope in seeing the words “President-elect Trump.”

This is not the Onion.

Many of the comments agree, this woman is a wreck and any man she isn’t dating should feel relieved.

Another conspicuous display of emotional extortion in the Left’s ongoing theatrical production of “You Did This To Me.”
