The fear

As with any other cornered animal, it can make them more dangerous.

#TheResistance to Trump’s Black Swan presidency so far has been triggered by fear—a fear that has molted over the course of the past year. First it was the fear of losing the White House, then it became the fear of the Outsider; latterly, it’s the fear that Trump may not be as vulnerable as they thought, that their deep state rogue intel op to take him down has failed, and that the public actually likes what he’s doing, even if they won’t admit it to pollsters.

And now it’s the fear of abyss itself: if Trump is successful, the entire Progressive project has been a fraud. All the Kennedy School of Government bureaucrats and functionaries in the world cannot affect the course of history as much as one man who doesn’t give a damn what they think. What Trump’s doing is far more important than simply upending the D.C. establishment and putting the Circumlocution Office on notice that its services are no longer needed. He’s single-handedly reviving the Great Man theory of leadership, and daring the rest of the world, including the colorless, impotent, and barren harem eunuchs of Europe, to catch up.

Thus, Trump’s carrot-and-stick handling of Kim not only got the little dictator’s attention, it also emboldened the president to apply a cattle prod to the genitals of the mullahs in Iran; naturally, the Lippmanns of Washington decried both moves as “destabilizing.” But destabilizing an insupportable and disgraceful status quo is exactly the platform Trump ran on; the president may not be an intellectual, but he understands chain reactions, and can’t wait to start them.

It becomes more apparent every day that he understands one hell of a lot more than his enemies give him credit for. Just another of their many, many miscalculations. But of all his strengths, I still think Trump’s greatest and most effective one is that, as Walsh mentions, he simply doesn’t give a shit what they think.

  1. “…he simply doesn’t give a shit what they think.” As does just about anyone who is deplorable etc. This is one of the main reasons he was elected. We don’t give too hoots what they say/think/believe just leave us alone to live out our lives. Leftards ought to read the quote attributed to Admiral Yamamoto, “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.” Maybe he didn’t say it exactly like this but the point is clear.
