Ron "Severe Dementia" Fournier would like you to know that the harder you laugh at his claptrap the more certain he is that he's Doing It Right. Ron must be hell on a date. Or looking for directions. Or cooking dinner. Or...
Professional Left is outraged over this anti-Trump post, dialing up its mockery & piety. Which confirms my point: https://t.co/TUPQ5AP65F— Ron Fournier (@ron_fournier) March 14, 2016
By the way, as one half of The Professional Left, I think I have pinpointed the paragraphs in the article (for which The Atlantic paid Ron Fournier actual American money) which Ron expressed preemptively crankiness at me for deriding.
Ah, but what if Ron had just kept his pie hole shut about what the Professional Left might do, thus leading me to never trouble myself to read his crappy article in the first place?
These intersections of prophecy and predestination can mess with your head:
Anyhoo. see if you can spot the subtle logical error which makes America's Sad Clown of Centrism so very, very mockable.
...From the start of his campaign, I’ve maintained that Trump’s disruptive potential says less about him than it does these times. In June, I called him “a combed-over reflection of angry America”—people cut adrift by globalization, buffeted by intense social change, and disconnected from a corrupt political duopoly.Still, Trump has surprised even me with his ability to inflame and exploit people’s anger. What did I miss? First, I overestimated the political establishment. Nobody in a crowded field of rivals built a strong and sustained case against Trump; one after another, the bully made them flinch. In Washington, clueless Republican leaders dismissed Trump’s chances for months and, even now, lack the moral courage to defy him. Meanwhile, professional Democrats cheered Trump’s ascent as a sign of their own superiority, smugly ignoring the fact that his voters could be their voters if the Democratic Party hadn’t disconnected from their concerns....
Over the last seven years the Trumpshirts have made it perfectly clear that their primary "concern" is thata Usurping Kenyan Muslim N*gger has seized their White House and he and his Liberal minions are actively engaged in a vast and traitorous plot the destroy the United States and hand this nation , bound hand and foot, over to our enemies.
And as one half of the Professional Left, I would not be more proud to be disconnected from those concerns.
