As the weeks between Election Day and Inauguration day tick down, the hate-filled, distempered, downright mentally deranged reaction of liberals of all stripes to the coming Trump era is jarring to say the least. So much for the more caring, more adult, smarter, and more serious liberals we were told were going to rule the country in 2008 when Obama first won the White House.
The liberal cause has been in meltdown since election night, certainly. But it has continued for these many weeks after the morning of November 9 when we all finally discovered that Hillary lost the election. The left immediately made itself look like some of the biggest hypocrites in history — or should I say hysteria — by going from “accept the results of the election” to “we have a duty to reject the result of the election” in the space of about 10 hours.
This is when the liberal meltdown really began. In the early hours of November 9, hours after the polls closed, the media finally brought itself to declare Trump the winner of the Electoral College (the only vote that matters) despite their weeping and gnashing of teeth.
But that was just the beginning. The public display of mental illness was only just beginning. Next came the exclamations that Trump didn’t *really* win because Hillary won the popular vote and liberals began to openly discuss ways of toppling Trump from his proclaimed win of the presidency.
These calls for disregarding the results of the election started within hours of Trump’s win and made a complete reversal of the left’s haughty tsk tsking at Trump who in the last debate had refused to say he’d automatically accept the results of the election.
Hillary immediately made it a campaign issue and actually said Trump was “destroying our democracy” and the media took up her stump issue with gusto. The Washington Post, for instance, called Trump’s refusal a “horrifying repudiation of U.S. democracy.”
But all that immediately went out the window when Trump won the election.
By afternoon on the day after Election Day, liberals were already flooding the streets to protest the peaceful transfer of power and working to undermine President Donald Trump before he even took office… or even before he is officially designated by the final meeting of the Electoral College or Congress that he was the President.
One particular protest even featured those oh, so kind liberals calling for the deaths of Trump voters.
But the inciting to violence kicked off before the last votes were even reported with a hate-filled rant by socialist ad CNN commentator Van Jones.
We’ve talked about race — we’ve talked about everything but race tonight. … This was a whitelash. This was a whitelash against a changing country. It was a whitelash against a black president, in part. And that’s the part where the pain comes. And Donald Trump has a responsibility tonight to come out and reassure people that he is going to be the president of all the people who he insulted and offended and brushed aside. Yeah, when you say you want to take your country back, you’ve got a lot of people who feel that we’re not represented well either, but we don’t want to feel that someone has been elected by throwing away some of us to appeal more deeply to others. So, we — this is a deeply painful moment tonight. I know it’s not just about race. There’s more going on than that, but race is here too.
If the media encourages you to feel the election is all about a racist America keeping you down, why would you accept the results?
