‘I’m Rubber, You’re Glue,’ and Other Childish Things That Losers Say

Posted on | January 23, 2017 | 1 Comment


Name-calling proves nothing, and sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. Nevertheless, I am in the word business. George Orwell’s famous essay “Politics and the English Language” needs to be assigned reading for everyone who wants to understand our current situation.

Because I’ve already exceeded my weekly quota of fat jokes, there isn’t much more I can say about the Women’s March on Washington. Madonna is now claiming she was quoted “out of context,” which is what liberals always say when they’re caught saying what they really mean. However, words actually do mean things, as we have been reminded:

Friday night in Seattle, a man was shot during a riotous protest outside an event at the University of Washington featuring pro-Trump speaker Milo Yiannopoulos, an editor for Police say the incident is still under investigation, but a report by the Seattle Times indicates the gunman was part of the anti-Trump mob and that he claimed to have been assaulted by the man he shot, whom he believed to be a “white supremacist.” However, friends of the victim — who is reported to be hospitalized in critical condition — say the man is actually an anti-Nazi activist who voted for Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democrat presidential primaries.
The shooting in Seattle happened on the same day that mobs protesting President Trump’s inauguration rioted in Washington, D.C., where among other criminal acts they broke windows at a Starbucks and a Bank of America branch and burned a limousine parked outside the offices of the Washington Post. A day later, during the anti-Trump “Women’s March on Washington,” aging pop singer Madonna spoke of her violent fantasies: “Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.”
“Love Trumps Hate” and “Make Racists Afraid Again” are among the slogans commonly proclaimed on banners brandished by these violent mobs. This simplistic mentality, equating Republicans with “hate” and “racism,” has the effect of dehumanizing the 63 million Americans who voted to elect Trump. The rioters and their celebrity supporters evidently believe that any American who votes Republican is not merely wrong, but evil. Anyone who doesn’t hate Trump as much as Madonna hates Trump is condemned as ignorant and unworthy of respect. Who is to blame for inciting this dangerously divisive attitude? . . .

Read the whole thing at The American Spectator.
