The historic meltdown of a major political party in America played itself out on live TV with the campaign and election of Donald J. Trump. As the Republican victor was being crowned in the early morning hours of 2:30 a.m. November 9, there was growing evidence that Hillary Clinton and her army of supporters had been eradicated by millions of so-called “Deplorables”. The Trump Revolution had been ignored, laughed at, marginalized, and rejected. Not so much anymore.
The line in the sand had been buried by the mainstream media as if by covering up the tens of millions of good, hard working Americans who were angry at Washington, DC and its elites, it would all magically disappear. But as it is with most populist movements, covering up the anger, the rebellion that was buried deep in the spirit of a heartland patriot only fueled that person, family and community.
There was a perilous darkness that had seeped over the political landscape of the nation like a hideous sickening death rattle of constitutional rights oozing out of the lungs and desperately clinging to be heard, fought for by a patriot leader. The one person who heard the pleading call of millions of forgotten men and women in America’s rust belt was a blue-collar billionaire.
He could see and feel how those wonderful fathers, mothers, kin folk relatives as well as church goers, and children were watching their factories, towns, safety, security and futures shut down and leaving them with just ashen futures in the wake. That was a quality of life that the mainstream media and the biased pollsters could not and would not capture. But it was that undeniable spirit that had been trampled upon by Democrats, Hillary Clinton and the political elites of both parties that the eventual GOP presidential nominee felt needed to be lifted up, honored and defended.
There were millions of words written and spoken against Trump and the so-called “Basket of Deplorables” because liberals and the Clinton machine that are assassinating the spirit of heartland America thought they could destroy the heart of Trump’s movement. The opposite occurred. Trump followers embraced Hillary’s hideous attack and embraced it.
Social Media was soon filled with a turbulent sea of defiance as millions of Americans soon proudly and defiantly changed their social media icons to “Deplorable.” While the liberal alphabet soup mainstream television media focused on Clinton’s “unbeatable” ground game, the Deplorables social media revolution went into election overdrive.
Having been a Michigan Republican local and state party leader for 20 plus years I was keenly aware of the sea change that was occurring in the households of Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and even Minnesota. Political leaders and their media cohorts ignored the revolution that was occurring because they were all drinking their own self-indulgent self-serving political Kool-Aid. Hillary relied upon her army of sycophants and marveled at how many thousands of “yes men” and women she had.
In other words, she and the sheepish political reporters who gladly waited for the morsels of lies and red herrings tossed their way, purposely dismissed Americans who were feeling real pain from Obamacare and true desperation when they lost a job, and wept at their kitchen tables as several house payments went unpaid. A time for reckoning had come and 2016 was that year and Trump’s movement was the vehicle.
The end result for those forgotten men and women in millions of America’s homes that dot the landscape of the nation is clear. Clinton like president Obama made the determined political decision to marginalize Americans who were hurting and feeling the political lashes of their hurtful destructive words. The goal of Obama and Clinton was to whip Christians, conservatives and American patriots into submission by destroying Christian faith, U.S. Constitutional protections and the very principles and values the founding fathers designed as our defining guidelines.
On November 8, the miracle occurred that the liberal naysayers said could never happen. God’s hand was felt in every undecided political voter’s heart who cast their ballot for Trump. It was God’s Holy Spirit that lifted up a nation of Trump voters to trust, believe and follow their hearts into the voting booth and reclaim their family’s destiny and future.
The Democrat party self-destructed on the launch pad along with Clinton’s criminal conspiratorial political enterprise to steal America from its rightful owners: the American people.
The silence of the heartland Christian faithful was awakened and no longer was it silent. President-elect Donald J. Trump is proof of it.
