Mr. Howie Carr exhorts us to remember one of the most important lessons of this last election. Donald Trump was hated by everyone whose job had anything to do with the Washington status quo. He was going to “kick the table over” and “drain the swamp.” Their livelihood and their inner vision of self-worth were at stake.

Carr points out that Donald Trump’s campaign exposed the moral and ethical bankruptcy of the Washington establishment. The Hillary email investigation brought many sickening things to light. It showed Americans that she was a liar – big news there – but also that the Beltway was a cesspool of frauds. The Democrats, their media synophants, Wall Street… the whole lot of them.
[From the Carr article] And they are so, so unhappy — they don’t just hate the “deplorables,” the “irredeemables” and the “bitter clingers.” They despise one another. They hate themselves.
From WikiLeaks, we know the disdain they have for “medieval” Catholics and “needy Latinos.”
We’ve long understood the Clintons’ breathtaking contempt for “the help” — Secret Service agents, the military, basically anyone in uniform. Now we’re discovering the Clintons’ supposed acolytes feel the same way about their masters. They say no man is a hero to his valet, and to the Clintons, we are all valets.
Doug Band writes a withering email to Podesta saying Chelsea is “not smart.”
Podesta replies: “You’re perfecting your skills for understatement.”
Neera Tunden exhorts Podesta to stay on Hillary’s case and “eventually (she) will sound like a human…”
They’re these inside-the-Beltway, trust-funded, supercilious snots from third-tier Ivy League wannabe schools who, as Victor Davis Hanson put it, “sound quite clever without being especially bright, attuned to social justice without character. Their religion is not so much progressivism as appearing cool and hip and ‘right’ on the issues … . Well-connected and mediocre … . They write and sound off about the buffoon Trump and preen in sanctimonious moral outrage … .”
… the Hillary-worshipping newspapers (no longer impress anyone)… They have not a shred of moral authority… (The Washington Post is still trying to demean Trump – RF).
John Adams once wrote of the new republic: “Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
Are we still a moral and religious people? Sadly, I think we all know the answer to that question…
Thanks to BL for sending this to me.
