During the final hour of November 8, I had committed myself to institutional psychiatric care. A generation or two ago they would have said I was suffering a nervous breakdown: catatonic, plagued by involuntary jerking motions (my head furiously shaking “No! ”), speech patterns disjointed, weeping uncontrollably.
Terror drove me to this interrupted state. I was afraid for the nation, for the stigmatized and oppressed. I was also afraid for my own life. Because the values and principles I hold dear felt fatally incompatible with the hate and bigotry that Trumpism had come to stand for. I did not want to live in a world that would elect such a man as president.
If Histrionic Gay Guy #897623 really thought about it, the people he should blame for his distress are his fellow Democrat Left activists. Their constant drumbeat of “All Republicans are Hitler, but Donald Trump is Super Ultra Mega-Hitler with Chainsaw Hands” can’t be healthy for those dim enough to buy into it.
The Left, as Ace notes, got to spend the last eight years living out their revenge fantasies on the people they hate. They were able to shut down Christian businesses for holding the wrong political views. They destroyed people’s careers for supporting the “wrong” causes. They even convinced college campuses to adopt, as a matter of policy, the view that all consensual heterosexual sex was rape if a woman subsequently changed her mind about it, and that men accused of rape forfeit their civil rights. They also managed to import into the country millions of third-world migrants who are fundamentally hostile to Christianity and to Traditional American values.
The biggest fear of the left is that Donald Trump will do to them what Barack Obama did to us.
Hillary Clinton will never be president.
Deal with it.
