Bill Bennett, David Brooks, Mona Charen, Charles C.W. Cooke, Michael Gerson, Jonah Goldberg, Victor Davis Hanson, Charles Krauthammer, Matt Lewis, Rich Lowry, Michael Medved, Paul Mirengoff, Dana Perino, John Podhoretz, Karl Rove, Jennifer Rubin, Kevin Williamson, editorial page writers for the Wall Street Journal and others of the Republican elite including Bill Kristol, must have had a cocktail party and decided that they are the cool kids, a gang apart, and Donald Trump and his supporters are not to be their friends. Trump is okay to donate money (like the kid who can do their homework), but heaven help him should he actually presume to dance at their party!
On my former favorite morning show, Mika Brzezinski, a Democrat, high on interviewing those women "who count" who had gathered for a self-worth hootenanny on Arianna Huffington's bed, postures as a policy maker and judge of public morality. As a Democrat her opposition is a given, but Joe Scarborough must also have imbibed the Washington Kool-Aid. Scarborough has chosen to preside over the Morning Joe name calling of Trump supporters. (Sinister. Stupid. Idiots. Uneducated. Racist. Imbeciles.)
Like bullies on the playground these self-anointed guardians of those permitted admittance onto our national political playground have resorted to belittling Donald Trump and his friends. No Southern mother would approve of her child treating another child with such disrespect. The media does to other Americans who believe differently than their politically correct ideology exactly what they accuse Trump of doing. Our children hear this denigrating language on major media every day. So much for objectivity.
As Pat Buchanan puts it "the establishment has become unhinged" (http://buchanan.org/blog/an-establishment-unhinged-124406). He writes, "Today the press decides what words are permissible and what thoughts are acceptable. The press conducts the inquisitions where heretics are blacklisted and excommunicated from the company of decent men, while others are forgiven if they recant their heresies."
These pretentious bullies are so full of their own self-worth in the rarified air of America's own District 1 of Panem that they have lost touch with reality. Real danger confronts us and their policies got us here.
Hunger games occur throughout our country with homeless veterans and other victims of NAFTA, GATT, WTO and other trade deals that have left America hollowed out of those manufacturing jobs that once would have employed these people. Wall Street vultures feed fat picking on the carcasses of those whose life savings were bound up in those homes that often now sit empty. Our infrastructure crumbles while our leaders prance upon the international stage either currying favor by writing checks or flexing their muscle with their hawkish rhetoric backed up by the bombs and blood of our brave American military. Immigrants flood across our borders refusing to abide by the rules, be truly vetted, and wait their turn in line for the privilege of being an American.
One man on the Republican side acknowledges the need to rebuild America. One man realizes that we must set the alarm on a home secure before we sally forth to save the world. Otherwise the big bad wolf will surely come and blow our house down. While he may not be equipped to lay the bricks, he knows exactly who to call to produce the craftsmanship needed to build it strong and how to make the best deal to enable us to afford it. And then he will appoint the most able commanders to direct our overseas efforts.
So while the privileged cool kids who have benefitted from the politics of the past don't want Trump sitting at their table, the rest of the lunchroom welcomes him.
