The Cultural Left And The Next Four Years Of Trump

It appears that the cultural left will be boycotting President Trump as an MO for the next four years. Ramping it up will keep the red states on alert that their traditional values are under assault every day. This will be grist for the mill in the mid-term 2018 elections and the next presidential election in 2020.

The rage of the cultural left is real and unfeigned, and its dark side will rise up for all to witness and for all to learn to fear. There are authoritarian dimensions to progressivism that surprise Street Guy. He might think that toleration and liberality are marks of the left. He would be wrong on that score. He will find out the extremes to which it will go to have its way and spend a good bit of the next four years shocked at animus which the left contains.

If the 20th century taught us anything, it taught us that the supposed ideologies of compassion and benevolence have sharp teeth. What happened to Ivanka Trump on yesterday’s flight is only a pale image of the assaults yet to come.
