THE TRUMP FACTOR AND HIS WONDERFUL LACK OF DECORUM


God morning Patriots,

A good friend of mine sent this article published in TownHall to me. The  author is Evan Sayet, and the article is entitled He Fights.

This is a spot on assessment of why President Trump was elected,and why each day, more Americans stand up for him. This goes to point whether you voted for him or not.

A great read. Concise and to the point..

 


Trump’s lack of decorum, dignity, and statesmanship.

My leftist friends (as well as many ardent #
Never-Trumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”

Here’s my answer:

We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.

We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain?

We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?

And the results were always the same. This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality, and propriety, the leftists have been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are
those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

– I don’t find anything “dignified”, “collegial”, or “proper” about Barack Obama lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.

– I don’t see anything “dignified” in Obama and Hillary lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover their tracks.

– I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in Obama weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy his political opponents and any dissent.

Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial”, or “proper.”

The leftists have been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ’60s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale. It has been a war
they’ve fought with the threat of violence, demagoguery, lies, and actual violence (the violent take-over of the universities) from day one – until today.

The problem is that, through these years, the leftists have been the only side fighting this war. While the leftists have been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality,
and propriety. With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America ‘s first wartime president in the Culture War.

During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors. Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of
the Army for conduct unbecoming. Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today. Lincoln rightly recognized that,
“I cannot spare this man. He fights.”

General George Patton was a vulgar-talking, son-of-a-bitch. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum then, Hitler and the Socialists would barely
be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.

Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastard, I read your book!”

That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the left using their own tactics. That book is Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” – a book so essential to the Liberals’ war
against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis. It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those
we most love or those to whom we are most indebted, Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer.

Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but,
in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do. First, instead of going after “the fake media” – and they are so fake that they have literally
gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri – Trump
isolated CNN. He made it personal

Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as “the most powerful weapon of all.” Most importantly, Trump’s tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position. They need to respond.
This leaves them with only two choices. They can either “go high” (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news
or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery. The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the news,
that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve.

It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the left alive. Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama’s close ties to foreign terrorists
(Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s church. Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama
administration’s weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration’s cover-up.

So, to my friends on the left – and the #NeverTrumpers as well – do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”? Of course I do. These aren’t those times. This is war.
And it’s a war that the leftists have been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years. So, say anything you want about this president – I get it – he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times.
I don’t care. I can’t spare this man. He fights for America!
