To most people, 2016 will go down as the year that a talking Cheeto somehow found his way into the Oval Office. That’s certainly a big part of how i will remember it! But to me 2016 will also go down as the year the Left – and i am including the liberals in that category, if only because that’s what everyone else is doing these days – showed itself to be totally, and perhaps irreparably, corrupted by both plutocratic influence and its own unspeakable stupidity.
First, they supported Hillary Clinton, a far-right, neo-conservative, neo-liberal, war-mongering psychopath, over Donald Trump, her obnoxious but significantly less worrisome center-right opponent. That the political “Left” and the MSM “Left” would do this is no surprise, for their true, plutocratic colors have been becoming more and more apparent since the election of Bubba D Raper back in ’92. Disgraceful – yes. New – no. What was truly shocking this year was how the grassroots Left behaved. These people, these so-called leftists and liberals, overwhelmingly sided with Little Ms Private Positions, this monstrous, child-exploding woman whom they fully knew to be a proud tool of the plutocracy. Not only did the smaller, supposedly truly leftist, news sites such as Reader Supported News side with Clinton and hence the plutocracy, but so did the “leftists” and liberals on the ground – all 65 million of them!
But then the unthinkable happened – their little tin goddess lost the election and left her followers feeling, to be kind about it, rather unhappy. And so came the tears. Not figurative tears, but literal ones. Screeching, agonized, howling-at-the-moon kind of tears. The kind of tears one expects when the neighbor’s kids see their dog squished flat by a truck right in front of them! The problem is, there is no dead dog and these are not children but, physically at least, adults. Yet not only were there tears, there were calls to suicide hotlines! Safe spaces in colleges were declared! Reality-free havens in which the distraught and terminally fragile could crawl with – quite literally – a puppy dog and a coloring book! This, then, is what the young Left has come to – a bunch of cowardly weaklings who can’t handle even life’s mosquito bites, much less its slings and arrows. Even in workplaces, members of the Pussy Generation took days off! Not for fear of being grabbed by the President Elect, but because they had to process their delicate little feels while hiding under the kitchen table and stuffing their faces with Ben And Jerry’s! Thankfully, this was not what young people were like back in the Forties, or we would all be singing Deutschland Uber Alles and wearing lederhosen! And don’t think it was just the twenty-somethings that freaked out. Alec Baldwin, major asshole and major Clinton supporter ( a common combination in the putrid halls of Hollywood ) was so distraught that he didn’t turn up for the post-election edition of SNL! Come on! What is this guy? About sixty now? And he can’t take losing an election? Such weakness is embarrassing enough in the young, but in someone brought up at a time when being so fragile was not encouraged, it is deeply shameful – especially for a man who likes to act the tough guy. Knowing Baldwin, he probably tried to console himself by phoning Trump and calling him a little pig. Heh, heh…
And then there were the protests against the result. America voted, the Left did not like the result so they decided to ignore democracy. That those paranoid and imbecilic enough to believe that the old orange guy is literally Hitler might want to publicly say, “I had nothing to do with the coming Holocaust!” is one thing. But to physically assault those who simply exercised their democratic right by voting for Trump? To riot and loot and set fire to shit? This is what the Left has come to? If it were to happen these days, kristallnacht would not be the doing of brown-shirted right wingers, it would be the doing of leftists, anarchists and crimson-haired SJWs! And the targets would not be Jews but whites and Christians. I don’t recall this shit happening when Obama won, and you know there had to be millions of really pissed off white racists that particular November. Yet all they did was to stay in their trailer parks, drinking cheap beer and complaining bitterly that President Jigaboo was about to screw them all over. They didn’t go out and beat up black folks who voted for Obama, neither did they hold mass protests. That’s what the Left has come to – it is now more thuggish than a bunch of racist Trailer Park Bubbas. Somewhere, the bones that used to be FDR are spinning wildly in their grave.
But the worst, the very worst, thing the left did this year was to openly, brazenly, and unashamedly try to overturn the results of the election by calling for the delegates who cast the electoral college votes to cast them for Clinton instead of for Trump! The excuse for this is that Clinton won the popular vote, but an excuse is all that it is. Can you imagine if it had gone the other way, if Trump had gotten the popular vote and Clinton the electoral college votes? No fucking way would fascist scum like “Lady” Gaga be calling for the presidency to be taken away from her girl Hillary! Perhaps the system does need to be changed so that the winner of the popular vote is the one who gets the world’s most dubious prize – ironically, even Trump himself has said so. But such a change needs to be carried out at a more appropriate time, not immediately after your neo-liberal idol loses, and certainly not retroactively just because you didn’t like the way things went. And doing it any other way is about as fascist as it gets. It is the kind of thing the Soviets would have approved of, the kind of thing the Nazis would have done – the kind of thing that the modern Left tries do. And don’t go thinking this was just a few radicals like Gaga and Pink and a few other brain-damaged psychopaths. No, the petition asking the delegates to betray the voters was signed by almost five million dirtbags! Five million fascist scum wanted the election, in effect, overturned. Despite this attempt at a soft coup, when December the 19th rolled ‘round not only did Captain Cheeto easily win, but Clinton actually lost more electoral college votes than he did! Only the Demoncrats could pull off such a ridiculous feat — they have become cartoon characters, a pack of hapless Wile E. Coyotes whose every attempt to squish Trump ends with them lying beneath a huge boulder!
All of these sad facts – the backing of a neo-liberal, neo-conservative candidate, the protests, the crying, the violence, the open disdain for democracy – lead me to one inevitable conclusion, namely that today’s Left is little more than a putrid pile of overgrown children who were given too many participation trophies just for showing up, PC lunatics who worry more about Bruce Jenner’s “right” to call himself a woman than they do about the homeless, neo-liberals desperate to fatten their stock portfolios and hold on to their cheap Mexican labor, and just plain, old fashioned fascist wannabes. It is a once-noble group which has somehow morphed into the villain of the piece, a group that has gone from being personified by the likes of Franklin Delano Roosevelt to being personified by the likes of Charles Montgomery Burns! It is a coalition of pinheads, lunatics and villains that can most accurately be described as reprehensible, dishonorable, contemptible and ignoble – in short, disgraceful.
