Let’s call it “the calm between the storms.”
I’m talking about the lull of controversy that lasts for about a day between the results of a presidential election and the next flap of outrage from the losers.
Donald Trump was declared the next President Elect at around 2 AM Tuesday night. For the next twelve hours, the news shows and editorial columns of American media were filled with soothing talk about why the pundits misread the polls, how Trump had turned into a very good candidate by the end of the race, the beauty of a “peaceful transition of power” in American democracy, and the need for unity instead of sucking on sour lemons.
But, just as any illness gets worse at night, so we are seeing an end to “the calm between the storms” as the old fever of anti-Trump rage breaks out again in numerous urban hot spots.
In Chicago, for example, thousands of angry anti-Trumpers have been marching on Trump Tower there. Why? Well, don’t ask me. Remember, until last night, it was the Republicans, led by Trump himself, who were unwilling to accept the outcome of a free and fair election. Now, though, the winning Republican camp is extending olive branches to its former opponents, while the worst of the Democratic hordes are trying to intimidate President Elect Trump and anyone publicly associated with him.
We’re seeing the same kind of immature chaos boil over in New York as well, with on-site comments that the same antidemocratic unrest is cropping up in Austin, Portland, New Orleans, Los Angeles, and New York, as well as some southern border towns. Since I am not able to confirm all of these reports right now, you can see for yourself what it’s like in a confirmed site like New York.
This is what #NeverTrump and #NotMyPresident look like on the streets.
In one sense, it’s kind of inspiring to imagine that “America’s young voters” are organizing themselves to continue an open, democratic debate. Unfortunately, though, this year has taught in no uncertain terms that so-called “popular protests” like Black Lives Matter are far more than mere “coincidences.” In fact, BLM protests and virtually all anti-Trump unrest in the past year, if not longer, is driven by wealthy rootless cosmopolitans like George Soros.
In a nutshell, now that Soros and Friends have lost another shot at controlling America via the White House, the globalists are going for broke with the bird dogging and BLM unrest. The immediate goal is to tar Trump’s presidency as a kind of “neofascism” before he even takes office. Ultimately, the goal is to make America so unstable and violent that Obama would have to order martial law or permit the U.N. to squash supposedly Trump-based violence.
This is why we must take all “popular uprisings” like we’re seeing in Chicago and New York with a very large grain of salt.
Meanwhile, now that the election is over, what can we do about it?
First, keep your eyes open. Be aware of your surroundings. If you’re in an urban area, give yourself at least two escape options by foot, car, or mass transit. If you’re a more secluded area, watch out for “rogue” anti-Trumper attacks from angry youths or, believable it or not, gangs with mobile phones to document their antics for a paid bounty.
Second, try to explain to anti-Trump people you personally know why he’s not “literally Hitler,” and how many of his positions actually line up with, say, Bernie Sanders’s platform (at least on trade and immigration reform).
Third, share this article to inform and encourage your friends and family! Just as Rome was not built in a day so we can’t Make America Great Again in one night, nor even a single month. In other words, be prepared to see more of the same social unrest and liberal immaturity. Do what you can to support your family and improve your community.
President Trump is counting on us to pull our own weight.
