Trump’s Honesty Liberates Us from the Shackles of Political Correctness

Andrew Klavan on the blunt force trauma that is Trump’s honesty.

Enter President Donald Trump. He is a rude and crude person. He speaks like a Queens real estate guy on a construction site. And because he does not have good manners, he thoughtlessly breaks the rules with which the Left has sought to muzzle those who disagree with them. In this regard, I frequently compare Trump to Randle Patrick McMurphy, the loudmouthed, ill-mannered roustabout from Ken Kesey’s brilliant novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. McMurphy comes into an insane asylum controlled by a pleasant, smiling nightmare of a head nurse named Ratched. Nurse Ratched, while pretending to be the soul of motherly care, is actually a castrating, silencing tyrant. Her rules of good manners, supposedly fashioned for the benefit of all, are really a system of mental slavery. All of McMurphy’s salient character flaws suddenly become heroic in the context of her oppression. Only his belligerent ignorance of what constitutes good behavior can overturn the velvet strangulation of her rule.

For Nurse Ratched, read Hillary Clinton, CNN, the New York Times, Yale University, Twitter, and Google/YouTube–all the tender ministers of polite silence and enforced dishonesty. If Donald Trump’s boorishness crashes like a bull through the crystal madhouse of their leftism–well, good. It’s about time.

He could have added NeverTrumpers like Jeff Flake and Bill Kristol to that list as well. Trump may or may not have said that Haiti and certain African countries were trous de merde, but supposing he did, it was in line with Trump’s politically incorrect way of characterizing situations accurately — if crudely — instead of using the politically correct euphemisms of the political class.

Trump speaks the truth bluntly, and it drives his detractors insane. Witness New Jersey Senator (and Obama-wannabe) Cory Booker’s meltdown in the senate where he cried like an emo girl over the alleged characterization of Haiti as a trou de merde. (Booker knows a thing or two about s-holes, having once been Mayor of Newark; a city that was such a s-hole he apparently didn’t live in it during his time as mayor.) [Also, NJ is a s-hole state that will send you to prison for having a locked and unloaded pistol in the trunk of your car because “common sense gun laws.”)

The left, in the 2016 election, routinely mocked Trump supporters over the supposed absurdity that the Billionaire Trump could relate to the working class. Trump was talking about bringing back jobs and making communities safer. The Democrat Left was talking about importing more Syrian “refugees” and mandates for transgender bathrooms. And they accused Trump of being out of touch.

The Democrats have nothing to offer the American middle and working class. More and more see through the Democrats’ redistribution schemes, that the higher taxes do not pay for better services, but only increase the armies of bureaucrats. The Democrats need Government-dependent third world migrants to pad their voter rolls. This is the truth, but they can’t admit to it. So they demagogue on race.

“The Democrats always demagogue race. They cannot debate issues. They have no agenda in dealing with the problems that Americans face.”

I would only add that the Republican Establishment also does not have much of an agenda for the middle class. The Democrats are used to cowing establishment Republicans like the Bushes with charges of “racism,” and watching them cringe and fall in line. It doesn’t work with Trump. It’s driving them crazy.

  1. Sen. Booker would be a disgrace to any other state, but unfortunatly he fits right-in as Senator for New Jersey;

    Robert Menendez D-NJ, on trial for official corruption.
    Jon Corzine D-NJ, improperly ‘borrowed’ then ‘lost’ $1.2-Billion of clients’ money at MFGlobal. Mysteriously NOT indicted…
    Robert Torricelli D-NJ, indicted for and received a formal letter of admonishment from the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Ethics for his involvement with campaign donor David Chang.
    Harrison Williams D-NJ, convicted for taking bribes in the Abscam sting operation.

  2. V,
    The Left has gotten lazy, fat, and stupid.

  3. He is crude and unrefined, that is what we in the petroleum industry like. I was convinced that he would be forced to offer a apology , ( I came to stand before you so you could see for yourself if I as big a asshole as you think I am.) but he has no Eisenhower.Who knows where this is going, the Democrats and the media hold the biggest megaphone, so they are counting on crushing us in the midterm election. As I look out from my crow’s-nest position I see lots of icebergs, (and it’s chilly, global warming don’t you know) are Trump and the Republicans smart enough to avoid ramming them. This Trump coalition isn’t a ice breaker.

  4. Matthew, the Democrats positive outlook on the midterms is a fabrication that they started weeks ago in Earnest. Saying a little something or nothing into what they consider to be reality. The reality being that their election machine is not even a shadow of what it was during 2016 and one off elections are always considered to be non-starters.

    The president’s words regarding Haiti behind closed doors is a non-issue. Everyone knows it and fabricated indignation just doesn’t cut it. People can cry and boohoo all they please.

  5. Reactions to this kerfuffle are like masturbation, you either agree or are lying about it.

  6. Robert Torricelli

    Ah yes, good old Bob. Nickname: The Torch. IIRC, he was supposed to be where Chuckie Schumer is today, if his prior misdeeds hadn’t caught up with him before that could happen.

    Yup. Exactly.

    I am very cautious about conspiracy “theories.” But, not all “conspiracies” are equal.

    The international corporations and the billionaires and millionaires-yearning-to-br-billionaires are more interested in power than the money. I suspect that they find that money does not buy as much personal satisfaction as they get from being powerful and throwing their weight around.

    Like mafia bosses, they “peacefully” come together to sniff each other’s aura and to get a notion of what’s new and where the winds are shifting. Because of their money, power and influence, they are movers and shakers with a force which cannot be denied. How much they conspire, I do not know. But I know that they have discovered what is in their best interests and act accordingly.

    The point is, these movers and shakers create all sorts of “establishments” to serve them and their needs. That includes governments.

    The story goes that every Congressman spends a bulk of his time fund raising and getting reelected. Secondly, after a period of service, each Congress critter retires with full pay. And each Congress critter gets transportation and living costs paid so the gig turns out to be fairly profitable. Nonetheless, the income is not so much that they can become millionaires on it. Yet many do become millionaires. How? By buying low and selling high with a consistency that is statistically nearly impossible. But they do it. With a little help from insiders who guide them. A favor. No strings attached. Right! Thus, the top of the food chain, fully aware of the laws and ethics, find a way to have friends in important places who can make things work for them. Who buys a $400 bottle of wine in a restaurant where the average plate is $100+? Millionaires and people who can expense it. They expense it, not for taxes, but for establishing “friendships.” So, when your Congress critter goes to dinner with well connected people, who pays?

    Back to the point. Who creates this system of temptation and rewards? The movers and shakers.

    President Donald J. Trump is their worst nightmare. He has his money. His kids are well off. His empire stands. He has been a mover and shaker, he knows how they operate. He knows the game, the club, the nuances, the code, the everything. And HE HAS GONE ROGUE. He has taken on the government of US, the existing international trade system, the “global” bosses, the dependent countries, the bullying countries, the whole existing global establishment. And it shows no signs of worrying him.

  9. I enjoy aphorisms.

    Wikiquotes’ Trump page is almost a national monument — a testimony of the struggle of common decency and unapologetic reason against the unhinged, America-hating radical left — the years 2016-2018 are especially revealing :

  12. This dustup illustrates a big reason why little of anything useful gets done in politics: the fact that it is impossible for people to discuss anything candidly.

    That’s how we end up in wars without end, education “reform” that, at best, just cost more without making anything worse, and social policy that sounds sweet but does as much damage as someone with a plan to make things worse.

    Many years ago, NBC ran Schindler’s List, uncut and without commercials. I thought that was brilliant as the movie was faithful to the book and had a vital message.

    Tom Coburn, then a representative from Muskogee, OK, criticized the nudity in the movie. Of course, the media piled on. While I disagreed with Coburn, I commented in a letter to the editor (published, amazingly enough) that this was a big reason politicians seldom say anything interesting. It’s much easier to mouth platitudes and cliches and keep your head down.

  13. If the left were proper ladies and gentlemen, Trump’s behavior would be terrible. However, the left are a herd of hate for anyone that the left wants to either control or destroy, and President Trump is clearly more than proper to act as he does. It is the what the left needs – firm and clear understanding that their rules are a one-singled system set up to first control those the left hates, and second to destroy those the left hates. There is no middle ground in facing down the left.

    I quietly enjoy watching a partner still under the left directives, and each and every move of Trump just blows the leftist programming in him. The leftist can’t operate to pull down Trump, and this country was so needing a Donald Trump to face them down with all their games to control – and destroy.
