So now that it is all over, all the posturing, all the fake allegations and all the pretentiousness can be dropped. I can finally say that I am relieved that Hillary did not win the election, and that all the social justice leftists have been shown some humility. I was one of the few people who was not surprised that Trump won. I mean, folks in the underground have been warning of poll rigging for a while already and even went as far as predict his win as of Nov 3rd. I was silently hopeful that all the whispers of poll rigging were true and that most of America was not delusional, and only mainstream media, and the establishment were. The morning after, everyone around me was asking me, “How the hell did he win?”, “How come nobody saw this coming?”.
My answer to them was basically, that there were those of us who did, but we did not want to speak out about it because to go against the Hillary campaign was to label oneself a racist/sexist/misogynist/hater. And really, once you (the media) poison the dialog to be about these kinds of politically incorrect topics, there really is no sense in discussing things anymore. The irony is that those of the extreme left who exonerate free speech and civil liberties, don’t seem to care so much about those causes when someone is saying something that they don’t like.
The elitist ‘sickness’
This is the problem about fighting for a cause from the outside. The ‘socially conscious’ Have’s in the world, the ones fortunate enough to be born into financially secure, well-educated families take it upon themselves to solve the injustices of the world, without being cognizant of the foundations of freedom upon which they were raised being eroded by their own actions, in a crusade like witch hunt for anything which is remotely labelled as ‘politically incorrect’. What they fail to understand is that ‘Freedom of Speech and expression’ is not ‘Freedom of socially accepted expression only’. They miss the point, and in trying to solve the injustices in the world, they go too far and start creating them themselves. This, like gout, is an aristocrat’s illness.
Why did nobody see this coming?
Simply this, if you were a Hillary supporter, her smear campaign against Trump, blinded you to his true message. While the mainstream media was too preoccupied with repeating his catchy racy soundbites and ‘anti-social’ phrases, he was busy talking to real people on the ground with the message that they wanted to hear. You surrounded yourself in an echo chamber with only people who agreed with you, and all told stories about what a racist or sexist Trump is. Maybe that was his campaign strategy all along. A passage from the wise Sun Tzu is appropriate
“All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when we are able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must appear inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.”
― Sun Tzu,
Trump likely knew this, and knowing that mainstream media and accepted ‘intellectual’ media sites would tear him apart on the grounds that he is an outsider, and not likely as qualified in politics as Hillary was, he decided to give mainstream media what they can’t resist… the ‘scooby snack’, that the likes of Trevor Noah, Stephen Colbert, or Megyn Kelly wouldn’t be able to resist: scandalous comments, and Twitter flame wars. This served to distract them, and distract you, the intellectual elite, the Have’s, the social justice warriors, from what he was really doing. So much so that you didn’t even know or see the freight train of support that was growing with every one of his speeches to the masses of lower middle class population.
Just look at how much (or rather, how little) Trump spent on media ads compared to Hillary. He wasn’t looking for the votes of those who have the time to be spending all day on Twitter and watching the news while getting worried about the injustices of the world. He was spending his time talking to real people who were too busy holding 3 jobs just to feed their families. He was busy telling CEOs of companies moving jobs to Mexico where to stick it. Michael Moore characterized it best in his movie, Trumpland: “It was amazing…no politician, republican or democrat, had ever said anything like that to these executives, and it was music to the ears of the people”.
If you watched inspirational bits of it like this, you probably came away thinking that Moore was supporting Trump. While the movie was clearly aimed at turning some disenfranchised Bernie supporters to vote for Hillary, I believe the video backfired in a spectacular fashion, as it ended up making a very good case for Trump instead. His appeal to people to see Hillary as a warm, personable, caring human (to dissuade her critics that call her ‘robotic’) while somewhat effective did little to convince people to swing their vote to her. After all, you can’t expect to be voted into the office of the President on a sympathy vote. Just because I can sympathize with her for her treatment as a women trying to implement an unpopular health care reform bill as senator, doesn’t mean she is going to make a good president. If anything it just illustrates yet another example of her inability to get a job done. So at the end of the day, Moore’s movie, like the whole of the Hillary campaign, was aimed at the wrong demographic. It was aimed at the Have’s, the social activists, the feminists, the intellectuals, the elites, the people who care more about other people than the ones that are only thinking about themselves, not because they are evil or bad or bigots, but because they are too busy worried about where their next meal is coming from. So while all of you tech-savvy intellectuals were too busy being distracted with Trumps apparent lack of morality, he was busy stealing the support base of real americans away from you.
