Trump-hating leftists usher in new year of Trump hatred

David Limbaugh on

Have you ever wondered why the political left is so inconsolably angry these days? Why does it consider President Donald Trump to be such a threat and his supporters so contemptible?

This isn't my imagination. While most people expressed their New Year's greetings in positive terms, the celebrity left defaulted to its Trump-hating form. Every day is a new day to rage against Trump, so why should their New Year's Day pronouncements be any different?

Breitbart assembled a list of celebrity tweets illustrating the point. Rob Reiner tweeted, "Wishing everyone a Happy New Year and a 2020 that doesn't include an ignorant corrupt soulless liar occupying the People's House." Stephen King tweeted, "Of his lies we've had plenty ... Kick his a-- in 2020." Rose O'Donnell couldn't quite make it through a New Year's tweet without denigrating Trump. "HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL," she tweeted, adding the hashtag #2020removeHIM. Rosanna Arquette said: "Putin is not my president. happy new year." In an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper, Linda Rondstadt likened Trump to Hitler and the Mexicans to "the New Jews." And the examples go on and on.

What is wrong with these narcissistic malcontents? It's not like things are terrible in America. Economically speaking, we couldn't be doing much better. We're certainly better off than we were during the Obama years -- by leaps and bounds.

Trump is also sticking up for America again, rebuilding our defenses; taking decisive action when our people or soldiers are in harm's way, as with his immediate response to the attack on our embassy in Iraq; pressuring other countries to contribute to our mutual defense pacts; and expressing his pride in this country -- as opposed to trotting around the globe and apologizing for it.

So what's not to like? His tweets? Fine, but do you really think that's what is driving them mad?

 

How about his alleged abuses of power? Please. They've been pressing for impeachment since before "Russia collusion" became their favorite mantra and long before they could identify Ukraine on a map.

They don't hate Trump for having acted outside his constitutional authority -- because he hasn't. That was Obama. They don't hate him because they believe he is extremely partisan. And if they were to believe it, they would have no credibility, for few presidents have been more partisan than Barack Obama, despite the progressive mythical narrative to the contrary.

You might recall how Obama used lawless executive orders to implement policy that Congress declined to legislate, forced Obamacare down our throats and smugly told his Republican opponents, "I won the election," and that he didn't "want them to do a lot of talking." And surely you won't forget how he bulldozed his stimulus package through Congress with less than a handful of Senate Republican votes after meeting with congressional Republicans just one day before the Democrats had drafted the 1,073-page bill.

They revile Trump because they can tolerate only one viewpoint -- their own. They resent that they can't cram down their ideas in all sectors of our society, our culture and our government. It's not enough that they have virtual monolithic control of the messages disseminating from Hollywood, academia and the mainstream media. They want total power everywhere, without any dissent. They are furious that red-state America won't roll over and surrender its sovereignty to them so they can complete the fundamental transformation of America into a socialistic, authoritarian state, and finish converting its culture into a post-Christian utopia. They are like agitated babies who've had their toys taken away and who militantly refuse to take a nap.
