They’re back. They being the rent-a-mobs that:
– Rioted in Ferguson and Baltimore last year.
– Infiltrated Trump rallies to cause violence and mayhem just weeks ago.
– Scrawled pro-Trump messages on the campus of Emory University (and inside a church near Northwestern University along with a student’s dry erase board at Scripps College).
In their quest to derail the Trump train by going to Trump campaign events and behaving as poster children for bullying and the deliberately offensive, they’ve returned.
This time around they’re bullying Trump supporters by offending them with flag desecration. For whatever they are paid – in some cases more than $50,000 a year – their “F*** Your Flag” (#fyoflag) roadshow is turning up outside Trump events with American flags on hand to step on and otherwise abuse. Their idea is to anger Trump supporters so much so that an act of violence will break out which can be recorded and published using social media.
Much like #BlackLivesMatter, the geniuses of #fyoflag haven’t offered up any ideas aside from “F’ing” the flag that represents this country and it’s system of laws that protects their right to behave like morons in public. They haven’t revealed which flag, if not the American one, they’d prefer to live under. That’s too big a leap of thought for them. Or, it may be that were they to answer a question like that, they know the black and gold embroidered on a field of Soviet red would reveal too much about moveon.org, International A.N.S.W.E.R., World Workers Party, and the other neo-Iron Curtain groups they affiliate with.
The navel gazers at media outlets that ought to know better – Fox News, NRO, to name two – haven’t caught on. On any given day they talk incessantly about how perplexed they are to find that people actually support Donald Trump and not John Kasich. Some, like The Federalist’s Robert Tracinski, have gone so far to attribute Donald Trump’s popularity to white racism.
Just like the knee-jerk left and their unwavering ability to find racism anywhere, there are right-wing commentators that have looked at Donald Trump and seen the klan.
In the meantime over at the Senate, Republican Senators Susan Collins of Maine and John Boozman of Arkansas met with Obama SCOTUS nominee Merrick Garland. Collins emerged from their meeting and said:
“This meeting left me more convinced than ever that the process [confirmation] should proceed”. In her view Garland was “extremely straight forward” giving her “thorough impressive responses to all of my questions”.
In the same way the media doesn’t see and call the rent-a-mobs out for the shills they are, Susan Collins and many Republican establishment figures don’t see Merrick Garland for what he is. As yours truly wrote two months ago, Garland was nominated because Obama viewed him as a palatable choice for Republican voters. Doing so helps Obama portray the GOP as a bunch of out of touch extremists so rabid even a centrist like Garland – even though he isn’t a centrist – wasn’t good enough for them.
As of this writing, it’s been less than a month since Garland was nominated to fill Antonin Scalia’s SCOTUS vacancy. Susan Collins has already given in. More Republicans will, too. By August, Merrick Garland will be confirmed as America’s next Supreme Court Justice.
That’s where much of Trump’s support comes from. Voters are sick and tired of electing Republicans to office, listening to their rhetoric, and then watching them fold like cheap lawn chairs at every opportunity. Ideological miscegenation between the Republican establishment and far-left liberals turns voters away from GOP-as-usual politics.
Or in other words, voters want an alternative to liberalism and they want it to behave as a real, no nonsense opposition party. If the Republican establishment doesn’t want the job, a great many voters will give it to Donald Trump, rent-a-mobs be damned.
