For the last few days, I’ve been noodling over the question why is it they fear Trump? And by “they,” I mean the political class and the Enslaved Press.
The attacks they are launching against this man are vicious. And like Rush Limbaugh always says, the Left with tell you whom they fear by whom they attack.
Don’t get me wrong. We all know that Hillary Clinton would sink into the mud to slander and besmirch any Republican who ran against her.
Likewise, the Enslaved Press would have aided and abetted the defeat of whichever Republican was her opponent.
But this no-holds-barred assassination of Donald Trump is beyond anything we have seen before.
Even some reporters who haven’t completely sold out to the Democrat Party are taking notice of just how extreme the Democrats and the Enslaved Press have gotten in their attacks on Mr. Trump.
For days now, I’ve been wondering why.
And I think I might have figured it out.
Is it because Donald Trump is just too “right wing?”
No. On many issues, Donald Trump is probably more moderate than every Republican who ran this year save for Jeb Bush, Lindsey Graham and John Kasich.
These bloodthirsty attacks have nothing to do with his positions. Not the wall or Muslim immigration, not taxes or trade.
They fear Donald Trump. But I don’t think it’s what he wants to do in office that has them so terrified.
I think it’s what he’s already done.
I believe that one of the things that the Enslaved Press and both political parties bank on is voter apathy.
Let’s face it. If a large plurality of the American population is indifferent to voting, whom does that benefit?
It benefits the status quo.
It is far easier for an incumbent to win reelection when the number of people voting isn’t high. There’s less of a chance for an unexpected outcome, you know?
When people give up on voting out of a belief that it doesn’t change anything, those who hold power maintain a certain level of comfort that their power is safe. Because nothing changes if nothing changes.
It’s the same reason the “Establishment” feared the Tea Party Movement.
Regular, everyday Americans became politically active. They turned out in droves for town hall events leaving their Congressional representatives gob smacked at the size of the crowds.
Congressmen and Senators don’t want to hear from us. And yet there we were in their faces. Hundreds and hundreds of Tea Party citizens showing up for a town hall event that two years earlier would have consisted of an audience of a few dozen senior citizens and a couple of soccer moms.
The Tea Party made noise, showed up, wrote letters, made phone calls, and marched on Washington.
We’re not supposed to do that.
So the Tea Party movement had to be slandered, marginalized and besmirched not only by the Enslaved Press, but by elected representatives.
Even Barack Obama referred to us as “teabaggers.”
And how many times did the Enslaved Press gleefully report that the Tea Party was dead?
You know, just like they gleefully report how Trump is finally finished.
An involved electorate is a hell of a lot harder to ignore and impossible to control.
For all their lofty words about the importance of voting, the Establishment is really okay with high voter apathy.
Don’t doubt me. Nothing gives the political class a bigger happy than hearing Americans say, “What’s the point of voting? They don’t listen to us anyway.”
They want us dispirited.
If we don’t care and, more importantly, if we don’t think what we say matters, these parasites can just keep doing whatever the hell they want.
Who’s going to stop them?
Along comes Donald J. Trump. And he messed up the whole stinking system.
Because he wasn’t a part of this entrenched political class that knows how the game is supposed to be played, Trump actually went out and appealed to the very people Washington doesn’t want involved.
Did you ever ask yourself why is it Republicans never campaign on the issues that their voters are interested in?
We want secure borders and an end to illegal immigration. And rather than listen, they lecture us about “illegals come out of love” and closing our borders “isn’t who we are.”
That’s by design you guys. They want us so disgusted we just don’t bother voting.
Donald Trump actually campaigned on the very things that voters care about. Suddenly someone running for office was listening to these dispirited and apathetic voters.
It fired them up.
You understand? It fired up the very people the political class has been trying to silence for years.
At Donald Trump’s very first campaign rally in Arizona, he said, “The silent majority is back, and we’re going to take our country back.”
And that is why they fear Trump.
We aren’t so much “the silent majority” as we are “the silenced majority.”
And we were beaten and dispirited into silence by the political class that now seeks to destroy Donald Trump for giving us a voice.
So many Americans have given up on our political process because they know the game is rigged. They know that nothing they say or do will make a damn bit of difference. So why bother?
And those Americans who have given up? Donald Trump has reached them. More importantly, he is paying attention to them. They’re being given back their voice.
Several people, including myself, have posited that there may be a significant segment of support for Donald Trump that isn’t getting polled.
Back in August, the Conservative Treehouse pointed out that 25% of those Republican primary voters in Florida had never voted before. One out of four.
To be involved in a poll, one has to have been a registered voter or have voted in recent elections.
These silenced citizens who had given up will never be called by Rasmussen or Monmouth or Public Policy Polling.
I can’t give you a number. I have no idea how many of people planning on voting in November have never voted before or haven’t voted in a long time. There is no proof that anyone can cite to quantify this silent voting bloc. How can you?
But often times, the only proof you need is how the political class is responding.
And the political class fears Donald Trump.
The “establishment” isn’t just trying to defeat Trump in November, they’re trying to utterly destroy him.
And why is that?
Shouldn’t it be enough for them to simply see him lose to Hillary Clinton?
Why the need to completely obliterate him personally, professionally and politically?
I’m telling you. It’s because he has unleashed a movement that not only consists of voters who turn out and vote in every election. This movement includes countless others who were cowed into silence and civic indifference.
You see, it isn’t just Donald Trump they fear.
They fear what he has unleashed; they fear the American people.
And since it’s been a few days since I’ve made a “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” reference, permit me to do that now.
In the Season 3 opener, Buffy has run away from home and is living in Los Angeles. She meets a homeless teen named Lily whose boyfriend has disappeared.
Turns out the boyfriend had been abducted by demons from a hell dimension. These demons take homeless kids off the streets and work them as slaves until they grow too old to work. Then they spit them back into the world to die.
Because time moves differently in this hell dimension, when Buffy finds Lily’s boyfriend Ricky, he is an old, old man lying dead in an alley.
Buffy and Lily end up in this hell dimension along with a few other homeless kids and they are introduced to the life that awaits them.
You work, and you live. That is all. You do not complain, or
laugh, or do anything besides work. Whatever you thought,
whatever you were, does not matter. You are no one now;
you mean nothing.
He approaches the first prisoner, a boy of eighteen.
Who are you?
Aaron . . .
The guard swings his club with deadly speed and smashes the boy to the ground.
The guard moves to the second prisoner. Lily.
Who are you?
The demon guard smiles, moves on.
Who are you?
Who are you?
Who are you?
I’m Buffy. The vampire slayer. And you are . . . ?
Naturally, all hell breaks loose. Buffy fights back and the demons and slaves are sent into chaos. The order of things completely collapses.
When the head demon finally sees what’s happening, he bellows, “Humans don’t fight back! Humans don’t fight back!!!! That’s how this works!!!!”
This is what is happening in America today.
Our moral betters in Washington believe we are no one. We do what we’re told. Work, live, obey. And we don’t fight back.
Donald Trump, like Buffy, doesn’t play by those rules.
And with his encouragement, millions of Americans are waking up and realizing we can fight back. Our vote can make a difference.
And that, my friends, is why they fear Donald Trump’s campaign.
Not because of any policy or agenda that he may pursue in office.
They fear him for what he has already done.
He has awoken a sleeping giant.
He has torn the lid off this basket of deplorables and the bucket of losers and set us loose on the status quo.
And the only way the political class and the Enslaved Press hope to shove us back down in our place is to utterly destroy the candidate who let us out.
