People out in the streets protesting the election. You Tube Videos of people crying and raging. Why?
WSF, World Class Philosopher, and a legend in his own mind, has the answer.
Trump voters have had years of drip, drip, drip put downs, erosion of rights, mocking of beliefs, and one loss after another. They developed emotional scar tissue and toughness. Finally, they found someone to rally behind who said, “It is past time for this shit to cease”.
The (P)regressives have been on a roll. A few minor setbacks but mainly “winning”. They have convinced themselves of their own righteousness. To the rest of us deplorables, it has been their way or the highway.
In one night they lost it all. They have never experienced a loss. How dare we deplorables do this to them? They don’t know how to cope, having never needed to cope before.
Full disclosure. The mean spirited side of me is enjoying the hell out of this. Yes, I’m deficient in many Christian virtues. So, sue me.
As always YMMV.
