Is the New Left Becoming the People They Loathe?
Donald Trump has awakened the savage beast of progressive politics. His candidacy is so frightening to them, they are willing to put their supposed values of non-violence, equity and fairness on the chopping block to prevent Trump from putting out his message. Last week in Chicago, student protestors planned for two weeks and, with help from Black Lives Matter, La Raza and MoveOn.org, made Trump's event so dangerous he had to cancel it. The very next day a man jumped the barricades and tried to attack Trump while he was speaking. CNN then spent two days trying to make the bearded thug a hero rather than expose him for the sniveling little coward he is. To compound its obvious bias against Trump a CNN commentator suggested no Republican in his right mind would try to speak at the University of Chicago. Why is that? Are progressives so afraid to hear other opinions they are willing to sacrifice the freedom of expression and freedom of speech of those they disagree with? Apparently so. The words said about Trump by his detractors are far worse than anything Trump has said about the protestors who have tried to ruin his events. So far one Trump supporter elbowed a protestor who gave him the finger. That's it. Meanwhile, Trump opponents have gotten into his events and deliberately started trouble in an effort to shut it down. They were not peaceful, they were not friendly; in a word they were thugs trying to deny Trump supporters their right to hear Trump speak. And, once again the Chicago event speaks for itself. My words will not get through to Black Lives Matter, La Raza or MoveOn.org, but maybe, just maybe, they may get through to you. The political left, which includes the Democrats, their candidates, the groups previously mentioned, as well as their influence peddlers in America's colleges and universities and media have targeted Trump because he scares them. His message is one that has attracted people from all groups despite the image being created. It is the race-baiters that cry racism. It is the most sexist that cry sexism. It is the supposed protectors of free speech that are acting to suppress it. I started by asking if the progressive left is becoming like those they profess to loathe. The answer is yes, they have.
