Fear and Loathing in Blue States

Burnng Trump


Over at Zero Hedge, Knave Dave lays out the cause of Trump Derangement Syndrome in “Liberals Scared to Death by Their Own Caricature of Trumpettes“:

Liberals are afraid of their own shadows right now. That’s because they’ve created anti-matter, Mr. Hyde caricatures of the Trumpettes — the average little guys who support Trump. These shadows that liberals have cast by their own self-deceit now surround them, and they believe the grotesquely exaggerated images they have created.

This false belief like any phobia is taking on its own life by creating mass hysteria in the streets of America. By that step, belief becomes reality. While the initial description that liberals painted of Trumpettes is false — they’re all misogynistic, homophobic racists — the hysteria is real, and that causes people to react with violence against whatever they fear. Those violent reactions become very real horrors that are not just painted in the imagination, and they divide the nation deeper, creating fears that are now based on real horrible events that came about due to the original false beliefs. It’s like a panic attack that feeds on itself.

And the more people continue to believe the caricature that liberals created out of Trump supporters and then react in fear to that caricature, the more real-life bad events will create real horrors. It can quickly become a self-fueling social vortex that all began from false fears.

Liberals have for months been retelling each other every day that Trump supporters are all bigots, homophobes, xenophobes and misogynists. They painted Trump supporters with a broad crimson-stained brush as being entirely motivated by hatred. On one level, I’m sure they created this image of the Trumpettes in order to win the election — by making making them look like the KKK fan club, which no decent person would want to belong to.

There is, however, a deadly downside to this kind of demonization: you cannot do it unless you also convince yourself that the stereotype you are creating is true — otherwise you’d live in the knowledge that you are a liar

[…]

Sure, Trump attracts bigots like a light in the night attracts most bugs. Maybe they make up as much as 10% of Trump supporters, though I doubt it; but because liberals have convinced themselves that all Trump supporters must be that kind of person, liberals are now scared by their own manufactured caricature. In their perception, they have just awakened to the Night of the Living Dead in a world where everyone around them might be a zombie.

[…]

Painting the story in blood by making it sound like Trump believes all Mexicans are rapists is where the real evil begins because people start to believe this demonization and apply it to anyone who would support someone like Trump. As a result, perfectly wonderful Mexicans who live in this country start to fear that everyone who supports Trump is one of those kinds of people who believe Mexicans are all rapists. So, they see a Trump bumper sticker and think, “That guy hates Mexicans.” The tragic part of demonization is not how it hurts Trump or his supporters; it’s that many people are now afraid that all Trump supporters are racists when they needn’t have any such fear.

As this liberal manufactured fear grows, it spreads like a dark fog over the landscape, and when the fog lifts, the ground is sometimes stained crimson as in this story about Black people dragging a White guy out of his car and beating him and dragging him down the road with his car while the whole crowd laughs … just because he identified himself as a Trump voter — probably had a Trump bumper sticker.

That’s what demonization does. It creates, in this case, a narrative that all Trump supporters (or whatever group is being demonized during that particular season) are evil and hate-filled. Therefore, it is OK to drag them down the street with their own cars after beating them up over and over while laughing about it and taking a video. It no longer matters what you do to these individuals because they are demons who are responsible for all the bad that ever happened to you.

They stop being people and become the are caricatures you have made of them. And that excuses your own hatred when you act in rebellion against them. (We do the same thing in war to make it easier to shoot the enemy. If we thought of that soldier in the opposite trench as a mother with children, we might be slow to pull the trigger and, thus, die, ourselves.)

[…]

If you hate everyone who simply wants to gain back the middle-class life that their parents once enjoyed or that THEY once enjoyed, then you are going to have a lot of people to hate. Since you don’t want to be a “hater,” you will paint all of them with a broad brush as being the haters, themselves, while you are just defending the defenseless against them. That way you can nobly hate half of America, and write their concerns off with one word — racism — while you hold your head above the masses.


There is a bunch more and you should go read it. Well? What are you waiting for? GO READ IT.

And then read this one too.

When it comes down to it, Trump Derangement Syndrome isn’t much different from racism or antisemitism. It’s irrational, but it seems rational to its victims. If you asked a Nazi why he hated Jews he would have told you about all the evil things that Jews did. But the truth was that Jews didn’t do all those evil things.

If you want to know who is really to blame for Trump Derangement Syndrome, just ask yourself cui bono? Who benefits? Some blame the media for whipping up this hysteria, and they are certainly complicit, but who does the media work for?

No, not the Democrats, but they are involved too. Who do the Democrats work for? Who benefits from keeping America divided against itself?

If you want the answer, follow the money.

    I just want to walk up behind a clatch of crying hipsters and say BOO!

    • Lulu says:

      Or whisper “There are monsters under your bed. They know you are really dumb and baaaad.”

    • Constance says:

      I just keep telling them “You have been lied to by people who are trying to manipulate you and that is Progressives and the Media. They believe you are too stupid to understand honest talk and they don’t respect you. I’m sorry they treated you like that”

      • Lulu says:

        You can’t explain anything to anybody until they are ready to listen. It is a waste of breath. It often requires a period of suffering before that occurs. I know because I have been that way too. But I learned. Now they have to and no one can make it “better” for them until they wise up. It is part of growing up and the level of maturity out there for so many people is pathetic. You do not help people by coddling them.

    guess this is one way to slow down the shootings in Chicago. the ERs will be treating more STDs, then gunshot wounds

      If it’s any consolation, U of C is a private university. Still, I am missing the days when my alma mater stuck to the Great Books curriculum.

    I don’t recommend Sanders and Warren as the future of the Dem Party. It’s sure going to be fun to watch them rebuild after Hillary gutted it of all her potential challengers. Just a bunch of old fuddy duddy progressives are left. I liked Cory Booker until he “god blessed” those stupid protesters.

      In 2008 the DNC was formally taken over by the Prog/Marxists. It became Obama’s party, not the Dems. He is the one who destroyed the party.

        Remember when he moved the DNC to Chicago, he took over the party part and parcel.

        • taw46 says:

          Yes, I remember we were upset when they moved it to Chicago, because it was obvious what that meant for the party. Sadly, probably most Dems were clueless.

  6. Lulu says:

    The second article linked just makes me feel sad for Bill. He was right and the shithead hipster dolts were wrong. And they disrespected him and he kept on chugging along. Hillary really is the stupidest thing ever. I hope Bill retires and blows up the Clinton Foundation by walking out the door.

  8. Mt.Laurel says:

    Well the little snowflake high school students here in blue koolaid on steroids Montgomery County Maryland have walked out in protest of Trump election and want it overturned. As someone who has to pay for their education never, I am not pleased with the continued waste of my tax dollars. The kids should be suspended and given detention and the teachers suspended with no pay for at least three days. Then the parents, teachers and kids brought together to learn for a civics lesson and as a lecture on reality. You do not always get your way. They will probably want special credit when they apply to college for their temper tantrum. Unfortunately, given the sad state of higher education, they just might get such rewards.

    • helenk3 says:

      very sad statement on today’s educational system. close the schools have an overhaul of the educational system. abolish the federal dept of education.
      those who really want an education will find a way to get one. the others can take the jobs of the illegals that are flooding the country doing the jobs “Americans” do not want to do. Should be an interesting social experiment . Although for a long time the country worked pretty good with many not having a high school education. they had to quit school and get a job to help their families.

    • taw46 says:

      High school students doing the same thing in Los Angeles. So who organized these students? They did not decide on their own. And I agree with you, they should be disciplined. But given that they probably have left leaning administrators and parents, probably nothing will happen. Sure looks like someone wants a full-blown revolution in this country.

      And Civics, do schools even teach that anymore? Just disgusting to let these kids think they can get what they want, to let them think they can change an election because they don’t like the outcome. Seems like someone is working very hard to delegitimize this election.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Don’t parents still have to sign permission slips for kids to leave school during the day? Not only stupid, but I see it as a safety issue too.

      I remember the teachers who wore Black Lives Matter shirts to school, but kids aren’t allowed to wear flag shirts.

      • Somebody says:

        There should be heads on a platter. These kids did NOT do this on their own, they are being encouraged to do this by teachers and apparently administrators or at least the administrators are looking the other way. School board members in each district should be up in arms over this, so too should the taxpayers.

        • DeniseVB says:

          They turned a valuable teaching moment into a side show. Like parents berating children for supporting Trump. This is abuse. Fox covered it and yes, people are upset.

    • SHV says:

      ” blue koolaid on steroids Montgomery County Maryland ”
      ****
      I lived in that county for 25 year, before it became another “People’s Republic Of…”..It was a nice place to grow up with excellent public schools…now not so much. Another DC suburb with insane housing costs; my parents house cost ~$17,000 in 1948, sold for $950,000 last year; insane!!

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        My mother had family that lived here for three generations. I spent every August as a child visiting them. It was one of the reasons I moved here thirty years ago. It has changed so much.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      Update. The principals sanctioned this and then let students walk miles through metro DC traffic to all mysteriously end at the same point. The principals need to be fired.

    • lateblum says:

      Awesome letter. Thanks for posting this.

      • elliesmom says:

        But she’s a first grade teacher. At least 95% of her kids can’t read it, which begs the question, “Who did she write it for?”

        • lateblum says:

          May be a good point. Is it a rhetorical question?

          Besides the words “decisions” and “probably” my 6yr/old gbaby can read the entire letter.
          She may be able to read the 2 words I pointed out. I’ll have to show it to her tomorrow when I see her. I know she knows most of those words. (I also know that she is a bit precocious for a kindergartener.) We read every morning and she and her parents read every night.

          • elliesmom says:

            By the end of the year most of the kids will be able to read it, but we’re only a couple of months into school. Kids are supposed to enter 1st grade “reading ready”. Normally, I would say it’s a lovely message to send to little kids any day of the year, but given how teachers have been behaving, it looks more like virtual signalling to adults dropping off and picking up kids to me. We have a new nasty president, but in spite of that, YOU can still choose to be nice. I might be reading more into it than what’s there, but it came off to me that way immediately.

          • taw46 says:

            Em, I agree with you. If she was celebrating a new President, why didn’t she include his name?

    The news report stated she was absent from covering the election last week due to ill health.

      That’s a shame. Maybe Trump should be putting curing cancer or at least making it a chronic disease people can live with on his to do list. It would certainly Make America Great Again.

      I never liked her, but, may the Lord take her in His arms and bless her with eternal peace.✝🙏✝

      How sad. She was a trailblazer, regardless of what one might think of her political views. And I think we can all agree that 61 is too young.

      I don’t believe anything either bronco or the WaPo say. I’ll wait to hear it from Trump.

      • taw46 says:

        Same here. I just think it is so typical how they take Obama’s word as breaking news. Check with Trump’s team for response? Nah, not so much.

    • Lulu says:

      More of Bronco’s “settled law” argument. Nothing is ever finally settled and it sure as hell is not settled what Trump will do nor be required to uphold some “core principal” pulled out of Bronco’s ass. He is always trying to make others commit or agree to his crap. No. You lost this one Bronco and no one has to do what you say anymore.

  20. DandyTIger says:

    Holy crap, Obama is talking about how Obamacare is a big success. Holy shit, he’s fucking nuts.

    • Lulu says:

      Cognitive dissonance. Wait for the audit of it. Oy!

    • lateblum says:

      Also saying that he will be “the first to congratulate him” (Trump) if he is successful. You and I both know THAT is a lie. I don’t know the context. But I don’t need to know.

    • Lulu says:

      So they can bully people out of their jobs but Trump supporters are required to spend money supporting companies, employees and CEO’s that HATE them. The funny thing is this a bunch of stuff I don’t buy anyway. I do think it is funny that a mega junk food company (PepsiCo) is such a rabid Clinton Foundation supporter and their CEO is bent over probably not getting a personal return on corporate shareholder money spent on bribery. Most companies are smart enough to avoid politics at least overtly.

  26. Dora says:

    They’ve just got to find someone or something to protest. Maybe they should all just ‘get a life’!

    just saw an article saying that backtrack claims Trump will stay with NATO.
    since when does that low class, no class, scuzbucket speak for trump?
    he has done nothing to quell the riots since the election. He keeps making these sly remarks about Trump being fit for the job. Do you ever remember any president being this low class and no class

    • Lulu says:

      Their “success” has been teeny-weeny. Many of them will start dropping out of the Loser Club. Since Soros the number of Dem officeholders has gone drastically backward. Obama is their only success and that is about to be wiped out.

    I was a protester when I was younger. We had a military draft, that was taking our young men and sending them to killing fields, and they returned in body bags. We had actual segregation for African Americans, and real inequality for women. We didn’t take baseball bats to a peaceful protest. We took gas masks, or wet bandanas to cover our faces from teargas.
    How times have changed.
    I cannot wait until Obama is finally out of office, and maybe we can change the outlook and conversation in this country.
