At a recent campaign rally in Kansas City, Donald Trump made two spot on observations:
– Trump supporters aren’t going out to Hillary or Bernie rallies to disrupt them.
— If Trump supporters did go out to Hillary or Bernie rallies and did disrupt them, the media would be apoplectic in their “reporting” and “analysis” of it.
No doubt there’s a pundit out there somewhere who is taking the latter Trump observation and is pretzel twisting the truth out of it right now as you read these very words. Since mind reading isn’t one of my many talents, I don’t know which pundit – or pundits – that might be. Several names come to mind. Nomiki Konst is one of them.
Nomiki Konst is the reasonably good-looking liberal that appears on Fox News and other media outlets periodically to push the hard left’s party line. She’s in deep. A true believer. While others drink the Kool-Aid, it’s people like Nomiki that are pouring hefty scoops of sugar and socialism into water melted off glaciers by climate change and then stirring the whole sickening morass together before pouring it into organically friendly cups made from tree bark by some utopian tribe of vegan transgendered atheists living in a safe zone somewhere south of Bogota.
Several hours before Trump’s Kansas City rally, Nomiki Konst appeared on one of the many Fox News shows to discuss outbreaks of violence at a Trump event in Chicago the night before. Evidently Ms. Konst has been living under a rock for the better part of the last sixteen years. She gushed about how peaceful the left was and how they never, ever, not once ever instigated anything approaching intimidation or violence in pursuit of their agenda.
Nomiki evidently has never heard of Melissa “I need some muscle over here” Click. She must have missed all those instances of conservative celebrity speakers being shouted down on college campuses. How in 2016 someone – especially someone as prominent as Konst – can be unaware of #BlackLivesMatter or Occupy is beyond me. When Obama said “if they bring a knife to the fight we bring a gun” she must have called in sick. Ditto all those times Obama administration officials talked about “putting a boot on the throat”. That a Trump event in Chicago degenerated into violence ONLY BECAUSE self-identified liberals – some with Bernie signs — showed up to “shut it down” doesn’t even show up on her radar.
In the pretzel-twisted world of people like Konst, everything left of center is as pure and clean as the driven snow. That’s why Nomiki went on to insist that America had moved beyond the things Donald Trump liked to talk about at his rallies. Racially sensitive things. That’s right. According to Nomiki Konst, racism was no longer a problem in America.
That’s right, liberal Bernie Sanders supporting Nomiki Konst on live national television stated that racism was no longer a problem in America.
The next time any liberal – politician, pundit, social media troll, etc – cries racism, the standard retort ought to refer them to Nomiki Konst. For example, say #BlackLivesMatters wants to burn a CVS down in some inner city community to collectively punish America for systemic racism. Just refer #BlackLivesMatter to Nomiki Konst who said racism is no longer a problem and presto, case closed. There’s no more racism, systemic or otherwise. Nomiki said so.
Rest assured, Konst will face no sanction from her fellow leftists for her heresy. Liberals say stupid things all the time and the lock-step left rarely if ever dishes out punishment. Their one and a half Presidential candidates – sorry Bernie but you’re not a real contender at this point – routinely experience diarrhea of the mouth. Just like the Chicago disruptors.
During on the street interviews in Chicago, one young man incessantly parroted “Fox News” over and over as though his intellect had reverted to that of a two year old. When he finally did answer the interviewer, he said he was there to because of “Donald Trump’s b*lls**t”. If he was runner-up to be the poster boy for low-information voters, the winner was a young man who was asked “What are you here to do?” — his response was “I’d rather not answer that question”.
Because answering that question would have ripped off the smiley-face sticker and exposed the ugly truth underneath:
What happened in Chicago was as corporate and manufactured as can be imagined down to the commercially procured signs and placards held by the protestors, and the use of social media to coordinate efforts.
– #BlackLivesMatter and moveon.org were behind the whole thing. It’s possible the Bernie Sanders organization was involved as well given the large number of “Bernie” signs present. The signs came from somewhere.
– The goal was to deprive Donald Trump and his supporters of their right to free speech and unhindered participation in the political process.
Nomiki Konst was sympathetic to the latter item. Konst’s mainline issue with Trump was that the things he says don’t align with her hip, cool, and millennial image of America. In other words, because Donald Trump has the audacity to present a different point of view than hers it’s okay if a bunch of liberals infiltrate Trump events in order to disrupt them. That way no one gets to hear Trump’s alternative point of view – only the hard left’s ideas get discussed in the public square.
If or when a group of Trump supporters show up to behave as a pain in Hillary or Bernie’s rear-end at their respective rallies, play close attention to the commentary that follows. Especially when people like Nomiki Konst are the ones doing the commenting.
