Something unexpected happened. Donald Trump won. The left is apoplectic about it and in full panic mode over the thought of a Trump presidency.
They no longer trust the government and they’re reaching for their guns.
Whoa there lefty! Maybe that means you’ll help us trim the size of the DC behemoth and support the Second Amendment. No? . . . I didn’t think so.
You said Government had all the answers. I guess you meant that only Hillary’s government would have the answers and that no longer applies.
But guns? You said they were dangerous. You said no one needed guns. Now you want them? Whatever for?
Too bad about that election.
Merry Christmas anyway.
Trump’s Christmas Gift to America
Liberals are suddenly concerned with the dangers of big government. It’s a holiday miracle!
From National Review: By HEATHER WILHELM, December 14, 2016 @HEATHERWILHELM
On Tuesday morning, the Heritage Foundation, the well-known conservative think tank, composed a doozy of a tweet, queued it up, and cheerfully blasted it out to over half a million followers. “It’s beginning to look at lot like Christmas,” Heritage declared, attaching a graphic of a beaming, thumbs-up, camo-hatted Donald Trump. One of Trump’s favorite rally one-liners — beloved by some, gleefully mocked by others— was helpfully superimposed on the image: “We’re going to start saying Merry Christmas again.”
Like many Americans who never stopped saying Merry Christmas in the first place — full disclosure: I sometimes also say “Happy Holidays,” “Happy Hanukkah,” or other jolly derivations on this theme — I found this somewhat confusing. Is the resurgence of “Merry Christmas,” said in concert from sea to shining sea, really a gift that President-elect Donald Trump will bestow upon America?
I suppose we can wait and see. But, all wild-eyed holiday enthusiasm aside, there is an actual gift hidden within Trump’s election: Suddenly, left-leaning partisans — many of whom have never met a government program they didn’t like, a boatload of money they didn’t want to spend on a study determining the proper gender roles of wombats, or an “incorrect” opinion they didn’t yearn to squash in the name of “free speech” — are learning to harbor a healthy distrust of big government.
Lo and behold! Merry Christmas!
Witness Ana Marie Cox, a popular progressive writer with gigs at MTV and the New York Times. “So who else has been researching basic disaster prep stuff?” she polled her Twitter audience on Wednesday. “Bc—congrats, right wingers—I do not trust the government to help anymore!” Her next tweet extended the holiday merriment to our nation’s Second Amendment enthusiasts: “Getting my rifle out of storage this week.”
