Now that the made-for-TV narrative of Jussie Smollett and the evil, evil Trump supporters has come apart, some of the Leftists who were quick to buy into it are feeling a tad, well, exploited.
Take Alyssa Milano.
Alyssa has made a name for herself as an uninformed celebrity activist.
In fact, the election of Donald Trump provided Alyssa with more fame and celebrity than her time on “Who’s the Boss.”
And has she ever said thank you?
Last month when the Covington Catholic boys were smeared and libeled by the media, celebrities and even politicians, Alyssa eagerly joined in the social media lynching.
Now, while most people focused on the slanderous smear that the red MAGA hat is the new white hood, the thing that I found most telling in this tweet was the hashtag Alyssa tossed in at the end.
Imagine what kind of an obsessed person you would have to be if that is the first thing you think of when you wake up.
And imagine the astonishing lack of self-awareness it must take to actually admit on social media that this is the first thing that pops into your head upon waking.
The first thought that pops into my head in the morning is, “What time is it?” or “Man, I have to pee.”
Frankly, I think it’s a sign of a seriously unhealthy obsession if, upon first waking, Alyssa thinks, “The red MAGA hat is the new white hood.”
And when it became clear that the Covington boys were slandered, instead of taking a moment for some self-reflection, Alyssa doubled down.
The other day I tweeted that the red MAGA hats are the new white hoods.— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) January 24, 2019
People were pissed!
People demanded an apology!
The media reported I was in “hot water” and was receiving “backlash” for saying this.
Well, here’s my op-ed addressing it all. https://t.co/pARWAmLwHU
You see, Alyssa is a True Believer.
She knows – just knows in her heart of hearts – that Trump and his supporters are so irredeemably evil that even when a “Evil Trump Supporters” narrative falls apart like a badly made sweater in the spin cycle, Alyssa has no choice but to keep the dream alive.
So, a week after penning her “op-ed” for The Wrap, Alyssa was handed a replacement story to confirm her vile bias.
Yes, living together on this planet shouldn’t be this difficult.
If only Alyssa had the self-awareness to take a look in the mirror.
She acts as if she’s completely sinless in this divisive hatemongering.
If she really wanted to tone down the rhetoric, would she be writing an “op-ed” arguing that a red MAGA hat is the new white hood?
Would she join in the lynch mob that tried to destroy Brett Kavanaugh over phony rape allegations?
Her bigotry and prejudice are glaring, yet Alyssa is incapable of seeing it.
And now that Jussie’s made-for-TV story is coming apart, Alyssa is awash in a sea of confusion.
Gosh, Alyssa. I don’t know.
Would someone be that hurtful to slander a good man like Brett Kavanaugh?
Would someone be so hurtful as to accuse a bunch of Catholic school boys of being the modern-day equivalent of the Ku Klux Klan?
Alyssa, honey. Look in the mirror.
You’ve been peddling slander and lies for the last several years.
How are your lies and slander any different from what Jussie Smollett did?
Have you considered reflecting on why you keep falling for these fake stories about people you disagree with politically?— (((AG))) (@AG_Conservative) February 18, 2019
She is entirely invested in this belief that we fellow citizens who voted for Donald Trump are frothing-at-the-mouth monsters and “2A zealots” (to quote another tweet from Alyssa).
But Alyssa makes a very revealing admission in this tweet.
Did you notice?
“To fuck with all of us by playing into our weaknesses.”
Wow. That is one hell of a significant admission – though I suspect Alyssa isn’t even aware of what she revealed in that statement.
She’s admitting that her bias against Trump and Trump supporters is a weakness that can be easily exploited.
And will she take that to heart?
I have my doubts on that.
After all, the very next thing Alyssa tweeted out after her bemoaning Jussie Smollett faking this crime was this:
I suspect the poor girl is a lost cause.
Roger L. Simon got to the heart of this psychopathology in a column at PJ Media yesterday.
This isn’t just Trump Derangement Syndrome; it is magical thinking.
Keep Alyssa’s startling admission about her “weaknesses” in mind while you read this bit of what Simon wrote:
Good Therapy defines magical thinking as “the belief that one’s own thoughts, wishes, or desires can influence the external world. It is common in very young children. A four-year-old child, for example, might believe that after wishing for a pony, one will appear at his or her house.”
MT pops up in various guises from a child believing in Santa Claus to adults adhering to numerous utopian cults, secular and religious. That communism would result, as Marx declared, in the “withering away of the state” was one form of magical thinking. Political correctness, in essence, is also magical thinking because there is no such thing, nor should there ever be. It’s almost as oxymoronic as “settled science.”
Democrats (liberals and progressives in general) have been headed in the direction of magical thinking for some time and, in fact, have been well over the line since the advent of Trump. Remember, moments after the inauguration, thousands of women marching through the streets of our major cities wearing pudenda hats because something terrible was about to happen to their sex? Nothing did.
That was only the beginning. That was followed by a raft of accusations that Trump, the most pro-Israel president in memory, with Jewish grandchildren, was an anti-Semite and to blame for some isolated swastikas. He wasn’t. And it went on from there.
Calling this Trump Derangement Syndrome is an understatement because it’s more psychologically disturbing than a mere political catchphrase can capture. With Smollett and AOC, this actual psychopathology — because that’s what it is — has reached new heights, in an apotheosis of magical thinking.
Alyssa Milano’s “weakness” is just this – magical thinking.
But instead of wishing for a pony or a shiny, happy land of rainbows and unicorns, Alyssa wakes up every morning wishing for a dystopian world where a Kremlin-backed puppet rules with an iron fist and Klan-like red-hat-wearing monsters troll the dark streets for their next victim.
What a terrifically sad way to go through life.
And I have to admit, I actually pity the poor girl.
