Atlantic Writer Admits That Liberals Have Not Reacted Well to Trump's Win and Still Haven't Gotten Over It, and Predicts (Safely) They're Resort to Further Lunacies, Including Violence, When He Wins Again

You don't say.

Yesterday the Atlantic published a piece by Shadi Hamid which makes the argument that if Trump wins the 2020 election, Democrats are not going to handle it well. The basis of his argument is pretty simple. Democrats didnít handled the 2016 loss very well:


Liberals had enough trouble accepting the results of the 2016 election. In some sense, they never really came to terms with it. The past four years have witnessed the continuous urge to explain away the inexplicable, to find solace in the fact that the voters betrayed them. How could so many of their fellow Americans side with a racist and a fabulist, someone so callous and seemingly without empathy? It was easier to think that those Americans had been lackeys, manipulated and deceived, or that they simply hadnít understood what was best for them. Moreover, the Russians had interfered, and tipped the balance in an extremely close election through propaganda, fake news, and collusion with the Trump campaign. Perhaps, as former Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid suggested, the Russians had even tampered with the vote itself.

You don't say. Why, I hardly noticed.

Still quoting from Hamid:

In presidential elections, once is a fluke; twice is a pattern. I struggle to imagine how, beyond utter shock, millions of Democrats will process a Trump victory. A loss for Biden, after having been the clear favorite all summer, would provoke mass disillusion with electoral politics as a means of change--at a time when disillusion is already dangerously high....


A certain kind of cognitive dissonance--the gap between what is and what should be--can fuel revolutionary sentiment, and not just in a fluffy, radical-chic kind of way. In such situations, acting outside the political process, including through nonpeaceful means, becomes more attractive, not necessarily out of hope but out of despair.

This distance between what a society should be and the tragedy of what it actually becomes is less of a problem in democracies, because democracies are supposed to be responsive to votersí demands and grievances. But they arenít always. The gap will grow larger under a Trump presidency than a Biden one, and this has implications for mass unrest and political violence across American cities.

Really, Nostradamus? You don't say.

You know why I suspect that Democrats may resort to violence, looting, arson, rioting, and targeted assassinations after the election?

Because they've been doing it for 110 days straight, with the left's leaders -- not fringe people, but actual elected political leaders and high-paid media mouthpieces -- defending and justifying the violence and cheering the murderers.

24 This is why they're doing the "scandal per week" thing with Trump and running outright terrorism in the streets to suppress the Trump vote and flip enough votes to Biden by promising to make the pain stop. This is also why they're gearing up to double down on it. It's also why they're getting ready to run the Color Revolution playbook here - the qualms about vote integrity especially and the planning to steal and flip and disqualify any vote they can.

It's a full on revolutionary push.

67 The greatest weakness of the Left if they attempt to resort to wide scale physical violence - they have no capacity of Power Projection outside their own areas. Portland Antifa will continue to burn Portland, same for Seattle, same for Chicago. They may even continue to burn down the western forests. Well that is certainly sad, but them wrecking their own nests sure hasn't worked for them so far, and I don't think it's about to.

The only territory that they could challenge that could require some serious (military) pushback is Washington, D.C. Even there, forewarned is forearmed.

112 "A loss for Biden, after having been the clear favorite all summer, would provoke mass disillusion with electoral politics as a means of change--at a time when disillusion is already dangerously high...."

Just thinking out loud here. If people are so "disillusioned", why would they vote, twice, for an agenda that's driving their "disillusionment"?

Answer: because it is not.

The "disillusionment" is being driven by Democrats insistence on destroying our institutions, our unique American identity, our quest for equality and our thirst for generational economic opportunity.

In order to accomplish that, Democrats need to divide us and create chaos because that's not reality. So they create an army of bogeyman to try to destroy us and make their disillusions seem real.

Posted by: Marcus T at September 15, 2020 02:58 PM (VpIIl)

113 Step 1 is realizing Biden is not a "clear favorite" and that people in the media are manipulating you.

So my company is moving to general work-from-home. Not mandatory (though it is in the US until early next year) but anyone who wants to will be allowed to. As a part of this, they send out periodic surveys to the workforce to gauge interest, get information about tools and capabilities, etc. I got one that I did not fill out. I usually do, but the first page of this is so bad that I will not complete it. It's a standard 1-7 "strongly disagree" through "strongly agree" survey scale. The first page - as far as I got - has eight questions. Three of them - or about 40% - have nothing to do with work from home:

3. My business unit is making noticeable improvements on its inclusive culture.
4. All employees are treated fairly at (company), regardless of individual differences.
8. The senior executives of my business unit demonstrate a commitment to diversity and inclusion through their actions.

This has nothing to do with work from home, at least primarily. This is a Woke survey that is not anonymous. There is no way in hell I am filling this out. I don't like "when did you stop beating your wife" questions, especially not under false pretenses.

A few reasons;

1) The left has taken on a gnostic view on reality - if you believe it hard enough, it becomes true. Transsexualism is the ultimate expression of that.


2) The left is drifting towards a society that practices soft polygamy - one rich/powerful guy has maybe a wife, and a number of side chicks and girlfriends. This means you have to do something with all those extra males. Homosexuality and transexualism? Why not.

3) It is taboo, it is kink. At least for now.

I don't want "change." Partly because change comes in two flavors, and the change leftists want is disastrous. See, e.g., California.

173 In a normal election, the defeated party would have a time of self reflection - what did we do wrong? how did we get here? They would adjust.

The Democrats have done nothing but project their failings onto others. The Russians did it. The racists did it. It was in no way due to their failed policies and preferred candidates.

In Joe Biden, they have nominated arguably the least likable candidate from a long list of losers. Candidates that were attractive , someone like Tulsi Gabbard, or Andrew Yang, or Mike Bennett, were shoved aside. Not saying I would vote for them, but I could see a reason. They would present a contrast with Trump. They had minimal baggage. But they pick Biden, old, decrepit, Biden.

America is facing a foundational question which is that one portion
of the country likes what it has been, thinks that it is broadly a force
for good in the world, reveres the founding fathers and the
Constitution and would like to stick with this.


Another portion of the country believes the country should be
regarded as having been founded when the first slaves were brought to
the continent, that the the founding fathers were merely slave owners,
that all the land is stolen, that Columbus would have been better had he
not set out and that everything since has been racism and evil.

That's how you get a civil war. Two totally different views of history.

205 This must be some kind of record for twisting reality into a pretzel ...

US lawyer Eric Lewis claimed rumours Mr Trump had been aided by foreign powers in the 2016 election continued to be viewed by the American leader as "undermining his legitimacy", according to his witness statement presented to Assange's extradition hearing.

Assange is fighting extradition to the US following the leaks of hundreds of thousands of classified documents in 2010 and 2011.

The 49-year-old, who has been in high-security Belmarsh Prison for 16 months, is facing 18 charges - including plotting to hack computers and conspiring to obtain and disclose national defence information.

Mr Lewis asserted: "WikiLeaks and Mr Assange pose a threat to the legitimacy of Trump's (election) campaign that he is desperate to squash by diverting attention and imprisoning Mr Assange.

"WikiLeaks is a vulnerability for Trump because of the evidentiary links between his campaign and WikiLeaks."

In October 2016, WikiLeaks published DNC (Democratic National Committee) emails to the "undoubted benefit of Trump", according to Mr Lewis.

Mr Trump had regularly praised WikiLeaks during his campaign, remarking: "I love WikiLeaks," the court heard.

But by 2019, he claimed to know nothing about the organisation, only that "there is something having to do with Julian Assange", it was alleged.

In his statement, Mr Lewis said: "The prosecution of Julian Assange is part of Trump's efforts to distract attention from the help that WikiLeaks gave to focus attention on the earlier leaks, which are much more politically potent for him.

"He wants to put Mr Assange in jail and keep him quiet."

8 PM Election night: A bunch of east coast states called for Biden. Several deep red states are declared to close to call

9PM/10PM same thing

11PM California called for Biden with twice as many votes for Biden as were cast for Hillary.


Talking heads say the election can't be called yet based on all those red and purple states still up in the air and Trump has to win basically all of them

Normies go to bed

Overnight Trump surges ahead in every one of those red/purple states. He clearly has the election won but...

Next day the FNM says those states can't be called because of mail in ballots, but clearly by the numbers from CA and other hard blue states Trump has lost the popular vote.


Some purple state election people announce they've caught the left cheating. The FNM says they are racists suppressing vote counting.

Trump is quickly appraised that various purple state Dem electing officials are counting illegal votes and adding them to the vote totals and if he doesn't do something NOW he will lose the election.

And that's where it gets interesting. Does Trump act like Nixon in 1960? Or does he actually do something?

And if he does something that's when Mattis and friend and their coup plans kick into high gear.

239 I recall in 2012, I was depressed as hell when Obama won re-election, I honestly didn't think there was much a chance of that happening, and it blindsided me something fierce. I figured there was no way that this country wanted more of what Obama had brought to it, that there was no ways that the American people would see the failures of his first four years and think that more would be a good idea.

His initial election did not bother me nearly as much, since I mainly figured that you had the factor of McCain as a singularly awful candidate, and the mystery of Obama as the blank slate upon which society projected its hopes for the future. With the veil having dropped and his radicalism manifesting itself for all to see, I figured there was no doubt that he'd be a single term wonder. I was wrong, and it hurt.

Now take that pain times a hundred and you get what the majority of the left already feel now following President Trump's victory, having whipped themselves into a frenzy. They were constantly told that Hillary was as inevitable as the grim reaper, that their ultimate victory over traditional America was already won, and that all that was left was the mopping up process. Then Trump came along and shattered that narrative into a million pieces.

Now, should Trump overcome what will likely be the most concerted effort in American political history to blatantly manipulate the electoral process and earn his second term, I do believe that many on the hard left will shift into open outright total warfare. As of now, they've been testing the limits of their ability to project violence within the borders of their own leftist controlled cities.

If they believe that their institutional control cannot defeat President Trump in this election, then at the very least, I could see many more James Hodgkinsons looking to spread their misery, with disruptions in the national supply chain due to widespread violence and disorder. Less likely, but very possible, would be to see the BLM/Antifa rioters organizing into something akin to a Marxist revolutionary guard and spread out from the cities to destroy every community which they could gain access to, with the knowledge that much of the establishment would do nothing to stop them as they have shielded them up to this point.

I hope I am wrong. I've certainly been wrong before, as I stated. But I am exceedingly wary of what is about to happen to our country, whichever way this turns out. 2020 has already been difficult enough, but I'd not be surprised that we look back at these times as relatively free and easy compared to what we are about to experience.

Dropped Scientific American years ago, even before I resigned from the American Chemical Society (ACS).

I left ACS because they had a bigoted and bugs hit crazy editor, Rudy Baum, who actively censored any opposition to the AGW horse shit. My letter of resignation cited this marked and active anti-science practice.

Scientific American, on the other hand, I dropped because I simply hadn't the interest in reading anything that it published in 10 out its 12 issues each year.

247 Everything we're seeing in modern times come down to this:

The Left burned through the seemingly endless reservoir of "gravitas" and "credibility" that the journalism profession has self-assigned and accumulated for centuries MUCH MUCH quicker than they planned.

As far back as the invention of newspapers in the 1700s, journlaists have always been biased and deceptive and pastisan. But from the very beginning they endlessly strove to deem themselves the arbiter of truth and reality, and starting especially in the late 1800s and up through the 1960s the media succeeded in building up its own reputation to such a degree that most Americans "trusted the news," and assumed that if it was on TV or in the newspaper or magazine, then it was a. true and b. important.

So there was thing huge reservoir of "credibility" owned by the media -- like the multi-billion dollar "endowments" f top schools like Harvard and Stanford -- so huge that it seems inexhaustible.

And the Left wanted that power, that gravitas, that credibility. So they spend decades getting every lever of power in the media, and using it relentlessly to accumulate more power, until by now they have a nearly 100% control of the media. Which they use to promote their leftist ideology.

HOWEVER, every time they publish a deceptive article, or glass over a key fact, or twist the narrative to fit their agenda, they burn through a little bit of that credibility. Just a little bit.

By golly, we've got so much credibility, we can burn through little but by little bit for CENTURIES, and still have plenty left over! Their reservoir of gravitas and credibility is endless!

Except -- oooops, "unexpectedly," they ran out of credibility about a decade or two ago, and have ben running on fumes ever since.

So they flail around trying to repair their credibility while simultaneously peddling lies, and it just doesn't work. You can undermine your credibility while simultaneously build up your credibility. Nope.

But their left is fresh out of ideas and strategies without their credibility. They pump their narrative at top volume, but now everyone knows it's a narrative, and most people don't like the fact they'e being lied to and don't like the ideology in the first place.

But the left refuses to accept or cope with that. So they keep pumping out the partisan lies and narratives, while simultaneously berating the voters for not acknowledging the media's impartiality and dominance.

The Left are miners deep in a played-out mine, chipping away desperately at the barren walls with their pickaxes, fruitlessly declaiming, "Gold! I've found gold!," but secretly wondering why they don't have a cent to their name.

It wouldn't be, they would still be acting like this because the only thing not seeing them act like this under Reagan, BushI, and BushII is that there was not the "new media" exposing the legacy media for their bullshit.

A couple of days later that family member told me how pissed they were now about how much the media twists and distorts POTUS' remarks.

If Trump takes questions from the audience.....

318 Treason as defined by the Constitution is different than we ordinarily think of the word. It has to be a direct assistance of a sworn enemy of the USA (aid and comfort, they worded it). So the kind of treason we think of "trying to destroy the USA" does not really qualify unless they are helping say, Communist China do so.

Which I think there is a case for, its just tougher to prove.
Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at September 15, 2020 03:20 PM (KZzsI)


You forgot the levying war part. It's NOT just giving aid and comfort to sworn enemies.

Treason

Article III, Section 3.
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, OR in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.

emails to the "undoubted benefit of Trump", according to Mr Lewis."

idk what the intent is, of bringing Assange here. He is already being kept quiet in the London dungeon ... WHO wants to bring him to America, and for what purpose?


What Assange has already revealed (pretty clearly, along with other evidence) is that Seth was his source, and the Trump/Russia lie was fabricated by Strzok and others, thenm advanced by team Mueller. The true testimony from Assange would reveal Team Mueller was framing Trump with the Russia spying lies.


Sure, Seth (a Bernie guy) was upset at the Hillary crimes, so he leaked, and was conveniently murdered (not saying Hillary gave the nod, but of course she would do that, it is her nature).


So WHO wants Assange locked up in America instead of London? Probably not Trump ... Trump would want his testimony about Seth. But DeepState would like to silence Assange, or thumb screw a FBI Narrative out of him, as they tried with Stone and others.

Russia's brand of corruption is more like organized crime on a national scale, with the national leader as the don. The West's is a flat out denial of reality and a return to magical thinking. Neither is objectively good, but one is far more disordered.

This is a bit more sinister.

This is a threat. (With plausible deniability) Elect Biden or war. Submit to our socialism or we will use violence.

Since they are using threats (with plausible deniability) to shape the game space in prep for the election and possible open civil war to force us to socialism we should be preparing the game for moves to resist socialism.

What is really important, here is that Apple is able to go back to mass producing its products in the cheap slave labor markets of China, so the labor costs are lower and dividends can be higher. So what if the US is subjugated as a puppet regime of the ChiComs under Biden? We need bigger dividends to make the shareholders (me) happy. -MRS Jobs.

D.G. Yuengling and Son of Pottsville, America's oldest operating brewer, is sending some cold ones your way for the first time since it began making beer in 1829.

The Schuylkill County brewery announced a joint venture with Molson Coors on Tuesday to break out beyond its traditional 22-state distribution area in the East.

Raising beers to toast the new partnership with the Pennsylvania brewer, Molson Coors CEO Gavin Hattersley said, "We're going to make a whole lot of Yuengling fans out West really happy."
