I hereby bestow my Column of the Week – on second thought make that of the Century – award to Roger L. Simon for this: Panic in Progressive Park: What If He’s Actually Good?
And while Roger’s columns are generally award worthy simply because of his command of the English language this award is for being the first to acknowledge a very real possibility: Donald Trump may just turn out to be a great president:
Reason for the panic -- the dawning realization, repressed and often unrecognized though it may be, that Donald Trump may even a be a good president, possibly a great one.
Contemplate for a moment what the world will look like if Donald Trump accomplishes even half of what he promised. A hundred years hence historians will marvel at the impact just one man had on the course of history. The 2016 election will be seen as the 21st century’s pivot point; the precise moment at which the pendulum on it’s racing arc towards “progressivism” suddenly stopped and began the journey back towards individual autonomy – a place once known as “America.”
Trump’s election will be taught to future students of political science as the point in human history where the people decided to take the path that leads back to American values.
Where liberty means more individual freedom and less intrusive government. Where equality once again means equal opportunity not forced equal outcome. Where justice requires that the Constitution be upheld and laws enforced, and rogue Federal Agencies are punished for unlawfully abridging citizens rights.
November 8, 2016 will be marked as the point where the debilitating adherence to political correctness began to reverse course. The point where words began to mean what they were intended to mean once again, enabling meaningful communication between people who disagree.
It will be seen as the point at which the West was finally able to name and condemn Islamic-fascism as the evil ideology it is in order to annihilate it - along with all the bastards who propagated it.
And let it be noted that like the Founders who preceded him by nearly 250 years, Donald J. Trump has also risked his life, his fortune and his honor to help re-create the greatest nation the world has ever known.
Some of us appreciate that. However until such time as history reflects favorably on Donald J. Trump he shall be known to America’s journalists, aka Democratic operatives with by-lines, as the white supremacist who said “pussy.”
All I know is that anyone who can get both the media and our other enemies so wee-weed up must be doing something right:
Prisoners at the Guantanamo Bay military prison in Cuba “thought it was the end of the world” the night of the presidential election and asked their guards for tranquilizers and sleeping pills, CBS correspondent Margaret Brennan reported Thursday. – Free Beacon
