Suburbanites Blind To Cause Of Discord — There is a certain segment of our society that bemoans what our political discourse has become and blames Donald Trump. Call this segment suburban soccer moms. They are nice people. They don’t like rudeness or crudeness or violence.
The problem is their sources of information are traditional, establishment ones that they feel safe with. These sources knowingly whispers comforting platitudes telling them if they say certain things, follow certain people, promote certain causes and vote certain ways all will be right.
It’s manipulation and it’s effective.
How many think Trump was buds with billionaire (and friend of the Clintons) child molester Jeffrey Epstein, who we have been writing about since 2010? Nope. The Donald barred Epstein from Mar-a-Largo in 1999 when he learned the perv was chasing underage girls. Something most have never heard. Trump also volunteered testimony against Epstein in Virginia Roberts’ lawsuit against him.
The swamping of our culture started with Hugh Hefner — who was defended by the hipster class until his death last year as described poignantly in this piece by Susan Brownmiller — and went into high gear with Hollyw00dy-lauded, child-molester promoting, Trump-hater Larry Flynt.
But that’s not the narrative, is it? Before Nov. 8, 2016 all was bunny rabbits and unicorns, right?
OK, maybe the bunny rabbits.
The most glaring example of puppetry is the strange but strongly held belief that it is Republicans who promote the violence.
The June 17, 2017 assassination attempt of congressional Republicans by which came very close to taking the life of Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA1) was done by a Trump hater as was the fatal shooting of Chester County Republican activist G. Brooks Jennings on Aug. 8, 2017. The shooting of Scalise is long forgotten and the killing of Jennings was never well known.
In July, an anti-Trumper was arrested for the threatening to kill Congresswoman Diane Black who is running for governor. You heard about that, right?
And you heard that on Sunday (Sept. 9), 35-year-old Farzad Fazeli tried to stab Republican congressional candidate Rudy Peters while spewing anti-Trump garbage, right? Peters is seeking to represent California’s 5th District.
It’s not the Republicans who are violent. It’s not the Republicans who hate women. It’s not the Republicans who lie about the other side.
