The weirdness started on social media late on Election Night, as it became clear Hillary was going to lose. A few of you actually admitted that you were cradling your sleeping children, weeping, wondering what to tell your kindergartner the next morning about Trump’s victory. It continued over the next several days. Some of you seriously expressed fear about modern-day concentration camps.

Despite living a privileged lifestyle, you were suddenly a casualty of the white patriarchy. Your daughters were future victims; your sons were predators-in-waiting. You threatened to leave Facebook because you could no longer enjoy the family photos or vacation posts from people who, once friends, became Literal Hitlers to you on November 8 because they voted for Donald Trump.

I admit I was a little hurt at first. The attacks against us Trump voters were so personal and so vicious that I did not think it could be sustained. I thought maybe you would regain your sanity after some turkey and egg nog.

But you did not. You got worse. And I went from sad to angry to where I am today: Amused.

That’s one of the most enjoyable things I’ve read in a long time.

ANYTHING they say or believe MUST be accepted. NOTHING conservatives say is tolerable or acceptable. Seems to be the current state of affairs.

My friendships with thugs on the left were ending long before the election. The people I heard gleefully goat about Hillary's impending victory and how she was going to force "vile" people to comply with their more modern views stopped being people I was willing to associate with long before their tears brightened my November. These are probably not exact quotes, but they are so close that it doesn't matter.

"Kim Davis is vile and should be crushed." [Neighbor, political activist, referring to a town clerk who refused to issue gay 'marriage' licenses that violated Kentucky state law.]

"If Melissa Klein goes bankrupt, she deserves it." [Another neighbor, a senior campaign official for Hillary, referring to a baker who refused to bake a custom cake to celebrate a gay parody of marriage.]

There are many other quotes. These people no longer hide their totalitarian nature. I wanted no part of them even before I saw how fragile these sore losers turned out to be on that glorious evening.

I couldn't believe that people were crying...Over an election?

Well, we cried for 8 years while Obama was destroying our nation at every turn.

Excellent!

And I'm not unsympathetic to them. I admit to waking up most mornings in 2009 hoping to hear the Kenyan usurper had been taken into custody for treason.

This is entertaining but misses the mark. Indeed, the comment "American politics became a whole new thing for you" is off, but not by much.

As I said elsewhere, things like #TheResistance are a public face to this "opposition" that masks the true evil that lurks within. Americans and Deplorables everywhere need to understand this reality so as to effectively deal with this poison.

The public face is essentially "Trump is evil, like Hitler. We will be better than previous generations, and not let our Hitler rise to dominance. Just as previous generations retrospectively wished they stopped Hitler at all costs, our generation will use all tools of opposition to avoid Hitler 2."

Sure, they never SAY THIS outright. But a casual review of Antifa, MSNBC, media and Hollywood types and other useful idiots' commentary, would support this arrogant public face of the opposition.

This public face will (sadly) somewhat resonate with the average human..."well, ok..maybe Trump isn't Hitler but he is kinda loud and obnoxious. And there is this Russia thing that I don't understand but let's see where this goes." Most people see right through the façade, but there are enough people with whom the public face resonates such that it continues, day after day.

The problem is the public face has nothing to do with the private face. The private face is more sinister than most imagine and if unmasked would be rejected by most casual supporters of the public face. This private face was nailed right after the election, In a great article posted on on FR about the impetus for the anti-Trump demonstrations. In short:

Liberals...have made politics their religion....What they really want is liberal Sharia law, a secular theocracy.

The minimum wage, gender equality, nationalized health care, and global warming—whatever their practical virtues—are not just expedient policy prescriptions. They are essential aspects of the liberal fatwa...political failure is not just a setback on the road to a more stable society—it is a blow to their very worldview. Opposition to their program is not just wrong-headed, but evil.

They came THIS CLOSE to putting the nail in the coffin. With Trump, freedom and liberty for EVERYONE - whites, black, straight etc. - stands a chance. As our FRiend SamAdams76 put it recently:

The morning of November 9, I felt like I had a fatal disease that suddenly went into remission.

Every day, people are waking up and seeing that there IS an alternative to statism. The opposition knows this, and is flailing away like the liquid Terminator at the end of T2.

This past Memorial Day, we remembered those who died defending this great nation. Let us continue honoring them tomorrow and thereafter, by calling out the opposition for what it is...a masked appeal for a secular theocracy that would reverse the greatness upon which America was founded.

/ rant. Thank you for listening.

Great article, and thanks for posting. The real risk for the loony Left is that (1) all of this backward-looking tends to make a person walk into trees, and (2) not getting over the first defeat means the second one hits you like a ton of bricks. I've tried to explain this to my more *earnest* lefty friends to little avail.

Like the author, my own reaction has gone from compassion for the defeated to anger at their incessant fury, to amusement at how silly and self-defeating it all is. And one step further - to real alarm over how openly murderous that has become in places that were once more or less well-adjusted and have joined the fringe - MSNBC, CNN, the NYT and the WaPo come to mind there. This is no longer simply a matter of venting frustration, it's become genuine, uncontrolled malice with a target in mind, and that target is me.

So, smile and stay armed is my own approach. I can always stop smiling.

These are all great posts and a good wake up call for all Americans. As President Trump expressed last night, this is not the time to relax. We have won one battle. Major though it is , it is not the end of the game. Like an injured wolf the fascist left is still very very dangerous.

We need to get out the vote in a big way in November or all of this winning will go away. The agenda will be stopped dead in it’s tracks and President Trump (I love saying that) will be impeached.

As you state; stay well armed and with lots of ammunition. There current behavior is exactly why they want our guns. They know that the total takeover of Europe and North America by the fascist left is near to completion. The major impediment is that we are armed to the teeth.

He also stated that the fascist left always votes as a block. No one breaks rank. We need to begin emulating them.
