Come Let Us Mock At The Great..

There’s a piece up on American Thinker, by Shurk: “What do the Democrats Fear in Donald Trump? Greatness”.  Please read, O Ratty (and I’m sure some kind soul will link to it😬).
We’ve gotten used to The Don, even we might forget how totally extraordinary he, everything about him, actually is.

Oh yeah, people will mock us, as they mock him, revile us, say all manner of evil against us as they do against him. (I don’t intend a sacrilege, I’m just making use of the marvelous poesy of the scripture) Isn’t that the mark of all who “have made greatness [their] companion”?
( As you’ll surmise, that line, and the title, are part of Yeats’ ouevre.)

My chest swelled with pride and sympathy reading Shurk’s piece. Make fun of me, I don’t care, not a bit.

And to borrow a lyric from Sir Andrew:
All you have to do/ Is look at him to know/ That EVERY WORD…IS….TRUE!

  1. The article re-iterates what we have been saying all along at Happy Warriors.  Donald Trump celebrates America and American values.  He has faith in American workers and American businesses and American servicemen.

    The globalists mocked and scoffed and shouted “Nazi” when he rolled out an “America First” agenda.  But Americans who love America rallied in support.

    America is the greatest nation, and American values are a power for good in the world.  With Trump as our champion, we seek to return to unabashedly celebrating America.

    One thought I had while reading. Much of the ossified deep state will be gone in 5 years (retired) . There is a chance that the incoming will see the good in MAGA and abide it. We must have a follow up to Trump. Is there one ?

    We are presented with two futures.

    One is where Trump loses and the Deep State is fully empowered to weaponize the federal agencies to promote Communism and eliminate individual liberties.

    The other is where Trump wins and the Deep State is routed.  Senior management in the federal agencies advance pro-American middle managers into senior positions, individual liberties are respected, and marketplace solutions are pursued.

    Kevin, your question is one that was posed by Hypatia just a couple of days ago.

    If we are fortunate enough to re-elect President Trump, we will need to find a successor to run in 2024.

    We are not looking for another Trump; nobody could successfully imitate him.  What we are looking for is a serious leader who can command a following and who is as completely sold out as a champion for America as is Donald Trump.

    I wouldn’t call the Don extraordinary. But he stands for extraordinary things because America is extraordinary.

    American populism won’t die and it will remain an important force in the American conversation and in American politics.  Trump has channeled that populism towards almost entirely good ends. I think Trump could be great if he establishes a legacy of channeling that fierce populist nationalism into classically liberal patriotism.

    I think “extraordinary” is quite fitting for Donald J. Trump.   He grew up in New York City, with money, conducted business for years in New York City where he necessarily worked with Democrats and Leftists of all sorts, then developed a side business which was a TV show where he was the star of his own show, playing himself.   Married three times and famous for bragging about affairs with married women.  Everything about his backstory gave reason for pause and concern.

    Yet he bested a field of what had been considered strong GOP candidates.  He did so by celebrating America and American values, raising issues that conservative voters were concerned about but on issues in which the GOP Establishment opposed their own voters.   Trump went trampling into issues where others would not go, had not gone, and did not seem to think were important.

    For a guy who seems to speak religion as a foreign language, he has locked up the votes of people who attend weekly worship.  He famously appealed to blacks in a way that no Republican had been courageous enough to do.  And even with a highly-credentialed NeverTrump opposition from within his own party, he defeated a candidate that everyone, beginning with herself and including pollsters, Nevers, the media, the Deep State and Vladimir Putin, thought would win, right up until election day.

    Extraordinary accomplishment.  Extraordinary man.

    You should see the way my little old church ladies express love for President Trump.   It is pretty surprising.

    I retract my statement. The etymology of extraordinary means outside of the common order of things. Clearly Trump is that. His most devoted followers and his biggest haters agree. I should say that he will be a great and good President if he can forge a ruling coalition that will sustain conservative victories that maintain the prosperity, safety and freedom of the United States.

  6. ?So what if the nest president after him decides to put him in a special advisor position to help with foreign affairs, etc. NOT the president but with the ear of the president. Could keep this going a while longer – enough to make a permanent change in the topography of American politics (and doom thugs like Pelosi and AOC/Omar/Tleb.

    Not a fan. Way too much like Deng Xiaoping for me. I like my Presidents to give up their power completely after eight years. Eight years was good enough for Washington after all.

  8. “The king’s a bawcock, and a heart of gold

    A lad of life, an imp of fame!

    Of parents good, of fist most valiant!

    I kiss his dirty shoe, and from heartstring

    I love the lovely bully!”

    —from Henry V

     

    A lad of life, an imp of fame!  THA’S what I’m TALKIN’ ‘bout!

    I hope the Don stands now at his Agincourt, and it will end with a herald from the enemy camp announcing, “The day is yours, Mr. President.”

    Dave Rubin made a thoughtful case for Mr. Trump and he voted for Libertarian candidate. “Who else but Trump could withstand all the attacks from the mainstream establishment.” Dave Rubin is buddies with some gay and black conservatives. He himself (against his better judgement) is on twitter and he peers into the dark depths of the left.

    Trump is a weird guy. He is a counterpuncher who attacks everyone who says anything about him but I suspect he also has an incredibly thick skin. Andrew Klavan says that he is a symbol of how much non-elite Americans hate the elites.
