WILL THE gory head of Trump, so grotesquely exhibited by Kathy Griffin, and the blowback it created, spell the end of the Democrats’ hysteria over losing the election?
Don’t bet the farm. Will it reduce it a bit?
Let us hope so.
My child bride occasionally views U.S. news, and she asks me what’s going on up there.
And I always tell her the truth, that the Hillary-and-Bernie people are toddlers on the floor, kicking arms and legs, and screaming bloody murder. Seven months now.
They didn’t get their way. They want that Snickers! But there’s another way to see the situation.
It’s the theater in which Americans sit or, more specifically, which of the two screens in that theater they are watching.
Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert, writes a blog that often touches on the political scene. He maintains that Americans are watching two different movies.
One side side of the theater is the movie of President Trump making America Great Again and giving the endless raspberry to insufferable coastal elites. Much of the audience, likely most, is watching that blockbuster film.
But on the other side of the theater is the horror flick depicting the Mongol hordes that have invaded the White House. That’s the movie New Yorkers are watching, plus folks in Washington DC, Seattle, California and much of Oregon.
It’s the movie Hollywood is watching, and it’s the movie shown repeatedly on 99 percent of university campuses.
When Weepy Barry was re-elected in 2012, I was flabbergasted. And so were almost all conservatives. We thought we had the election in the bag, but we did not.
We were severely disappointed, but we did not take to the streets. We did not burn cars. We did not photograph ourselves with bloody heads of Obama. Didn’t even occur to us.
We accepted the loss with grace. Well, most did.
America has been subjected now to seven months of nonstop screaming, bawling, death threats and rioting by Democrats. Enough! Perhaps Kathy Griffin’s grotesque stunt that horrified many Democrats too will inspire a calming on the left.
Let us hope so. It’s quite important.
You’ll get another chance in four years. But skip geriatric socialists and charmless wives of ex-presidents. Be imaginative! Nominate Al Franken or Pocahontas. We would love that.
Meanwhile, grow up. Get off the floor. You look absolutely ridiculous because you are.
