The truly deplorable

This election is a wonderful, gigantic fuck you to the real deplorables in this contest:

George Soros, the billionaire who does his utmost to spread dissension and deceit. He wants, for whatever reason, to destabilize the West. To that end he helps fund many of the shadowy groups exposed by Wikileaks and Project Veritas, and encourages the influx of Muslims into Europe and the US.

Hollywood, and its many high publicity/low IQ stars. Whatever Miley Cyrus, Alec Baldwin, Rosie O'Donnell, and George Clooney say about politics, it's usually a safe bet to assume the opposite is true. Here's hoping that all the stars who said they'd leave the country if Trump were elected make good on their threats.

The Silicon Valley bigwigs, as typified by Mark Zuckerberg. They agitate for more H1B visas for foreign workers so they don't have to pay American programmers as much, then cloak their greed with sanctimonious homilies like "We're a nation of immigrants." Actually, we're a nation where the middle class has suffered because of the globalists.

All of the politicians -- Democrat and Republican alike -- who took campaign contributions from multinational corporations, and then did their will, which was to make it easy for them to send jobs abroad -- or even reincorporate abroad -- at the expense of the American worker.

The media, which thought it could blind us to reality, with their constant hysteria about Donald Trump having tried to kiss a woman who may not have wanted to be kissed, or having the nerve to judge a beauty queen by her beauty.

The pollsters, who thought they could discourage Trump supporters from showing up at the polls. (Who can ever take their polls seriously again?)

Wall Street, which gave Hillary tons of money with the tacit understanding that while she would rail against them publicly in order to keep Bernie's supporters in line, she would actually -- wink wink -- do absolutely nothing to rein them in. Lloyd Blankfein actually forbade Goldman employees from contributing to the Trump campaign, on the pretext that Pence is a sitting Governor: hey, can't allow any of that pay-to-play stuff if you're a Hillary supporter.

The BLM movement, which has for two years pushed the ridiculous myth that black people are in more danger from whites than whites are from blacks. "Hands up, don't shoot" originated from the Michael Brown case: Brown never put his hands up, and tried to wrest an officer's gun from him.

The cuckservatives. John McCain, Mitt Romney, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush all ostentatiously refused to vote for Trump, thinking that they were demonstrating their own virtue by doing so, when in fact it was obvious they were all just sulking after having been insulted by Trump. McCain and Romney ran cowardly, inhibited Presidential campaigns, and reaped their resulting defeats. And where is it written that because you're a Republican you have to say the Iraq War was a great idea?

Barack Obama, the lazy, deceitful, conceited, closed-minded, college radical who never grew up. He never questioned his own beliefs despite all the evidence contradicting them, and he never questioned his own side's Alinsky-ite tactics no matter how sleazy they got. I don't blame him for remaining a closeted homosexual; I do blame him for being a closeted communist.

And most of all, Hillary herself. She's been compared to Lady MacBeth, Nurse Ratched, Medusa, and the Wicked Witch of the West. But none of those characters fully captured her unrelenting hypocrisy, nastiness, corruption, dishonesty, and shamelessness. (In fairness to the authors who created them, it would be impossible to do that in the space of one work of fiction.)

Great post. Agree wholeheartedly with everything you said. I am tired of the arrogance of the elite. They deserve their loss. I guess the American people aren't as stupid as they presumed.

John Craig said...

Thank you Susan. And yes, they are despicable. Or rather, deplorable.

"What a night." -- me, to everyone.

The condescension of the elites continues. My FB feed is filled with the lamentations of the left. They had no idea how hateful, stupid, and racist their fellow citizens were. The WaPo op-ed page asks if there will be regret a la Brexit, because, of course, right?

What stuns me is the fact that Trump won comes as such a surprise to everyone. I mean really. You must not know ANY working class people to be surprised by this.

I am getting emails, texts, messages etc. with real genuine fear and anger from my friends. I respond with vague, non-committal platitude like "What a night." They read into it what they want. No one would ever believe I am pro-Trump.

I feel better about America than I have in a long time. More common sense out there than I had even hoped for. This was like one of those interventions families stage with alcoholics. Let's just hope it's not too late.

Trying not to smile too widely today. Must look appropriately demoralized.


John Craig said...

Gardner --
I saw a similar article i the NY Times by Paul Krugman, with the headline, "Is the US a failed state?" Pathetic. They all live in what is frequently referred to as an "echo chamber" where all they hear is themselves, lamenting, as you say, the hatefulness and stupidity of Middle America.

Ha, you're a closet conservative, Obama's opposite number.

And yes, it's hard not to feel a little glee.

I'm actually having a colonoscopy later today (taking one for the team, so Hillary doesn't get to do something similar to the country) and I've been advised not to let the doctor know how I feel about the election until after the procedure is over. Probably good advice.

Steven said...

This is a kind of victory speech in which instead of thanking a bunch of people, you run through a load of fuck yous.

Trump won, eh? aint that something.

John Craig said...

Steven --
Except that it's not a personal victory for me, it's a victory for the American people (even the ones who don't realize it). But otherwise, yeah, that's not an inaccurate characterization of the post. No, not gracious, but it wasn't meant to be.

Steven said...


literally everyone on my Facebook feed (except for one shitlord friend) is lamenting Trump's win/posting various defamatory things about him. And this is not even America.

Steven said...

Its a victory for you as a pro Trump pundit and as an American.

I do have some worries about Trump but I also have a pleasing feeling that is hard for me to articulate. Its a sense that real power has just shifted away from the politically correct liberal ideologues who ruled, whether in the media, politicians or the university sjws- BLM and feminists. They had got out of hand, too much bullshit. Its a feeling that something more steady has been restored.

Then there's the other level of the economic elites and the hawks. its a shake up, from top to bottom.

Hopefully he doesn't screw up monumentally which he has the potential to do.

Steven said...

btw a good counter is if the electorate is so racist, why did they elect a black man twice and then vote against a white lady?

Anonymous said...

Wow! I don't think you left off anyone. Watching Rachel Madcow, Van Jones, and Wolf Blitzer sweat and stutter was awesome.

Just curious, do you think the retards from BLM hurt Clinton in WI and NC? Remember, they provoked massive riots when a Black cop shot Black armed thugs.


John Craig said...

Steven --
It's a victory for me in the same way it's a victory for all Americans (again, whether they know it or not), but for m etc give a "victory speech" would be incredibly presumptuous, since nobody voted for me for anything. Also, if I WERE to give a victory speech, which I never would since I personally didn't win anything, the people I'd thank are not the people I spoke of in this post.

Yes this shakeup feels awfully good. The Left went too far, and angered an awful lot of people. And there was a lot of anger in that vote yesterday.

I'm cautiously optimistic about a Trump administration. He still has all of the personal foibles I've mentioned on this blog, but hi instincts seem good, and with Republican control of Congress, maybe something gets done. A lot of the stuff he addressed in his campaign was stuff the mainstream politicians wouldn't even mention, and was stuff that needed to be addressed.

John Craig said...

Spartan --
I hadn't even thought of that, but I think you're right, both were surprises, electorally. They must have hurt HRC in those two states, that makes perfect sense. How could it not have?

Good thinking.

Steven said...

Okay John, it wasn't a victory speech :-D

Anonymous said...

I'd just like to say that this election was a disaster for Hillary. It was also a disaster for all the players you mentioned in this post. Now that the election is over, we'll probably not hear the word 'disaster' so often. I'm going to miss it - such a beautiful word, such depth and so many connotations :-) - Ed

good to see the media still spinning the false narratives, makes it less likely that they will grow and learn from their mistakes.

Clinton failed because she could not hold the Obama coalition together....Trump got almost the same number of votes as Romney but Clinton fell 6 million votes short of the Obama 2012 votes...and Trump did much better with Hispanics and Blacks than the pundits predicted, which is why they remain silent on this issue and continue the false narrative of the racist white voters. Trump lost a significant number of votes to former GOP governor, Gary Johnson ran as a faux libertarian. Johnson got almost 4 million votes, 99.9% of which were whites and half of them were never Trump GOP males encouraged by the GOP establishment to reject Trump. These Nevertrumpsters are the reason Trump failed to win the popular vote.

John Craig said...

Jova --
(I hope you realize your name Autocorrects to "java" every time and I have to correct it back, so if you ever see a response addressed to you that way, it's not the writer's fault.) Yeah, the media will never learn. But at least they're predictable, and more and more people are learning to read between the lines of what they have to say.

Ah, that's interesting about blacks and Hispanics, I hadn't heard that. I thought Trump actually had some compelling things to say to the black community, i.e., "What do you have to lose?" and "Hillary courts you for your votes, forgets you for four years, then comes back again after having done nothing." He's right about that of course. I do hope that he's able to do something for that community, both for their sake and to prove that his policies are better than liberal ones. Organized blacks only seem to care about deaths of blacks caused by cops, especially white ones, but that community as a whole would be way better off with more law and order, and Trump is not going to hamstring the police the way Hillary would have. And, who knows, maybe the "rising tide" theory will help them; I think the trickle down theory is far more likely to work if the corporations are given tax cuts rather than individuals (who would just keep the money for themselves rather than hire more people), and his aim of exporting fewer jobs may help too, though it obviously will do nothing for the hard core unemployable in that community.

Yes, Johnson a "faux libertarian," great description. He was a moron, and those who voted for him were morons, and I say that as someone who used to consider himself a libertarian.

Steven said...

"I say that as someone who used to consider himself a libertarian."

What changed?

Shaun F said...

John - Eloquently summed up, nailing all the culpable parties. Glad we saw this day, closer than I thought though.


John Craig said...

Steven --
The official Libertarian Party became sillier and sillier, and the gradual realization that universalism doesn't work in a society where every other group is pulling for their own, while you're trying to maintain a strictly universalist outlook.

John Craig said...

Shaun --
thank you very much. Yeah, what a joyous day. And yeah, it was also a close call.

Mark Caplan said...

The Shitlib's "browning of America" conspiracy just hit a wall, a big beautiful wall.

In such a close election, I'm certain your great blog made a difference. Congratulations. Take a victory lap.

John Craig said...

Mark --
Thank you very much.

Runner Katy said...

Gardner put into words my exact thoughts, thank you! Thank you, John for this blog to help us all read and remember the right reasons to vote for and against "movements". I think Trump's victory speech (although I'm sure was written for him) was the most beautiful thing I've heard come out of his mouth.

I'm excited at the thought of getting back some of what we had as a country 8 years ago.

John Craig said...

Runner Katy --
Thank you for being so supportive of this blog. Yes, Trump has been statesmanlike since his election. But so far all the names I've heard mentioned as members of the transition team and potential Cabinet members have been guys who are quite combative: Rudy Giuliani, Newt Gingrich, Chris Christie, and possibly Jamie Dimon (for Treasury). We'll see how it all shakes out.

I'm obviously no fan of Obama's, but I'm not sure the country was in such great shape eight years ago, we were in the midst of the housing bubble financial crisis. But, yeah, let's undo some of the Obama executive orders and start enforcing our borders. Anyway, thanks.

Donna said...

John, Wow! You summed it all up perfectly! The only fact I would add is that the hypocrisy of Bill's shenanigans in and out of the White House seems to be ignored. Many women planning on attending a "Million Woman March" for their daughters after the inauguration to protest Trump as a sexual predator, as well as taking the apparent moral high road by voting for Hillary as a firm message for protecting their daughters. Meanwhile, thanks to Bill, we all have a warped view of what defines "sex". I have tried to calmly discuss with the Hillary supporters and it is impossible. They don't seem to understand that Hillary is cloaked in secrecy, and she has a facade that conceals her true opinions as demonstrated by her exposed emails. Hillary is a hypocrite for staying married to Bill (yeah she really epitomizes a champion of women's rights). The hysteria is beyond comprehension! It is almost like we have an entire segment of the population not able to think critically! Donna (hope my writing makes sense - I'm on my iPhone and can't seem to re-read what I have written)

John Craig said...

Donna --
Thank you.

What you've said makes perfect sense. It IS amazing how blind Hillary supporters are, they just can't accept that she has any faults. I contrast this to Trump supporters, most of whom say something to the effect of, yeah, he's sort of a pompous buffoon, but I agree with him on the issues, so I'm voting for him. With the Hillary supporters, it's much more a matter of monkey see no evil, monkey hear no evil, monkey speak no evil.

Donna said...

Yup! And, they viciously attack with the most vile name calling if anyone challenges them! I challenged my California cousin on a FB post about his statement that there are very few universities in the middle of the country, aka red states, and that people are uneducated and don't know any better. I advised my cousin to venture outside of California and visit the middle of the country. The backlash I received was incredible! The vicious name calling and assumption that I am the epitome of "white power" and a "spoiled sheltered woman". It was incredible! The attacks were so personal! The people attacking me don't even know me! I ended up deleting my comments and replies and waiting a few days to unfriend my cousin. He is a jerk and should know me better.

Donna said...

While writing I just received a crazy link in my pm box because I posted on FB how important it is to be civil with political discourse! Unbelievable!

John Craig said...

Donna --
You are discovering, as so many of us have, that liberals can't really debate, or argue cogently, so they call names instead: Racist! Sexist! Homophobic! (This isn't true of all of them, just 90%.) yOu bring up a legitimate -- and fairly obvious --point about how there are plenty of universities in the middle of the country, and, instead of trying to provide statistics to refute you, they call you names. They're wrong, so that's all they can do.

You went through a list of groups/industries dominated by liberals. Tech, entertainment - music/movies finance. Let's through in scientists, academia, the arts. Liberals. You insult them all. I'm curious, I would like to know. What do conservatives provide that's of value to anyone else? If hypothetically conservatives were shipped down south, obviously enforcing your strict immigration rules etc what would tv be like? Music? Who would come up with the iPhone? What would their Silicon Valley look like? Scientific community? Yet the liberals are nothing. Amusing.
