I try not to follow electoral politics, because it is a spectacle, designed to give you the illusion of a microslice of political power. And ninety nine percent of the time, it is as fake as professional wrestling, as when the Republican party recently passed a federal budget funding every single thing on the left wing wish list, including welfare for illegals, late term abortions and the sale of baby meat, completely, outrageously, and flagrantly betraying those who voted for them, and revealing that everything they had said on the campaign trail was a total barefaced utterly cynical lie.
But Trump … well at worst, it is truly great professional wresting, and the people I hate are getting pounded good and hard, and are not liking it very much.
Trump has the outstanding knack of getting a complex idea across in a gesture, a smile, a tone of voice.
A girl challenges Trump on “women’s issues”. At least that is what her question verbally is, but her body language is “You are uncool because fertile age chicks don’t like you”. And all us white knights know that fertile chicks are the arbiters of male social status.
Trump gives a rambling non answer to this rambling non question that logically makes no sense at all, and has no particular relevance, but in fact makes the point that he has numerous hot wives, great sex life, handsome sons and beautiful daughters. So this attack having been deflected, she asks an actual question. “When you are president will I get equal pay”
Trump replies “If you earn it” – making the unthinkable and unspeakable implication that what women do in the workplace just is seldom very valuable.
Trump was challenged on his reluctance to put boots on the ground in various trouble spots where the US is currently being routinely humiliated. To which he replied “Do you want to rule Syria?”
We have of course been losing wars because we have been occupying countries while refusing to rule them. Chaos predictably ensues. Progressive imperialism believes we can put good guys (meaning democratically elected progressives) in power around the world, as was supposed to happen in Arab Spring. Trump’s question implies that if you put boots on the ground the victory condition and the method by which victory is achieved is that your general rules as US proconsul. This gives progressives the horrors, because the progressives want priests, not warriors, to rule. But priestly rule in an Islamic country is at best Islamic Brotherhood, as in Egypt, at worst the Taliban, which is why we have been losing. Events in Afghanistan have repeatedly demonstrated that faced with a choice between Taliban rule, and rule by US soldiers, the US State Department will choose the Taliban every single time.
