Trump to PC: “No More!” (This is great!)
city-journal.org ^ | Myron Magnet

Posted on 01/16/2018 7:12:15 AM PST by RoosterRedux

Two op-eds in this weekend’s Wall Street Journal and one on this website brilliantly call attention to aspects of the vast political and cultural change, still in its early stages, that is gathering force in this country as inexorably as the spring thaw breaks up a frozen river, first as a trickle and then a torrent. Donald Trump figures in all three stories. He is at once a cause and an effect of the change—the Tea Party movement embodied and in power, and as much a rejection of the existing order of things as the mob that swarmed onto British ships in Boston Harbor 245 years ago and flung overboard their cargo of tea whose tax they refused to pay in a gesture of defiance that declared “No more!” And they meant it.

Peggy Noonan’s Journal column observes that after Trump there will never again be a “normal” president. Never again, that is, will we elect some apparatchik from the haughty, out-of-touch, overpaid political class that has given us generations of arbitrary rule by the Administrative State’s unelected “experts” too inept to see a financial hurricane brewing;

In the same paper, Shelby Steele points out that the lesson we should draw from the National Football League protestors—whose kneeling at the National Anthem drew much-publicized jeers from Trump and drove fans away from the stadiums—is that the days of black protest are over, because past years of heroic protest succeeded in making black Americans truly free (as Gene Dattel’s Reckoning With Race argued recently). The campus snowflakes’ worries about microaggressions, the Black Lives Matter protests, the armies of deans of diversity are all obsolete.

*snip*

On this site, Andrew Klavan dazzlingly argues that “rude and crude” President Trump, who “speaks like a Queens real estate guy on a construction site,” nevertheless speaks truths that well-mannered people are too cowed by political correctness to admit—such critically important truths as that violent criminals are disproportionately black, for instance, or that most terrorists are Muslim.

Last night I posted the Klavan column mentioned here. It’s getting a lot of notice out there. It’s as good a summary of where things are at regarding this latest overwrought kerfluffle, and PC in general, as is out there. Recommended.

Trump will turn the sh!thole narrative back on the Rats and their MSM stooges as he did the fake news narrative. Thanks Little Dickie for the softball.

Now we just need to replace every single person in Congress with “real” Americans who share in the common goal of making the country the best it can be.

And that's a fact, Jack. Time to TELL IT LIKE IT IS.

Tell the Delusional Lying Left to take their PC and take a flying leap.

Donald Trump, Slayer of PC.

I am overjoyed to finally see this (well, the end of the beginning, to quote Churchill), and proud to have played a small role in it by supporting and voting for him in the primaries and the general election. It has been over 40 years of this dictatorship of the Left over our culture, and I am loving the thought and reality of them not only losing a lot of their power, but also losing their minds in the process.

Trump’s not politically correct, he’s just correct.

The same party that gave us JFK, Lyndon Johnson, Bill Clinton, and Barack Hussein Obama is now collectively fanning itself on the fainting couch over comments made by Donald Trump.

Sure.

“losing their minds in the process”


SUCH a SMALL loss, one which will never be missed.

Great article, but be warned that the left won’t go quietly.

The latest hubub over DJT’s language is just a hint at what we’ll see going in to this election.

The left will throw everything they have at conservatives without any regard to honest, ethics or morality.

BE READY TO FIGHT BACK!
