The Establishment Birthed Trump!

This from David Limbaugh: "Much of the establishment’s criticism of Donald Trump comes from its failure to comprehend the reasons for his soaring popularity.

"Establishment types seem untroubled by the problems facing America, so they can’t understand the urgency that fathered Trump’s rise. Minor adjustments to the Hindenburg’s dining room menu just aren’t going to cut it.

"Their overwrought analysis, their hand-wringing and their contemptuousness for Trump betray a disdain not only for Trump but for Americans who recognize the gravity of America’s predicament – and who, in desperation, have turned to Trump for bold action.

"It’s hard to overstate Americans’ concern for the state of the nation. Horrified by President Obama’s Sherman-esque march through America, they are tired of hearing that nothing can be done. They are through with empty promises from establishment politicians." READ MORE HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: If nothing else, Donald Trump's growing popularity is proof positive that political correctness can be overcome by those who have the guts (and/or the money) to stand up to it. Last night on Hannity, Trump went out of his way to embrace mainstream America, vowing to protect gun rights, abolish Obamacare, deep-six Common Core as his first acts in office, after building his wall on our southern border, of course, and stopping Muslim immigration altogether.

Will he come through on any of those promises? Who knows! But he's having so much fun rattling the cage of the politically correct, mainstream elites in both parties that even long-time holdouts such as Patrick J. Buchanan are egging him on now.

Again, not an endorsement. But Trump's success should at least encourage us to stop being straightjacketed by the PC Gestapo. Those guys are terrified of Trump. Why? Because he can't be bought and he can’t be silenced.  And whether that terror is justified or not, the takeaway for the rest of us is to wake up, man up and start fighting back, telling them exactly where they can all get off. 

This entire militantly secularist, atheist revolution in politics depends on their ability to silence opposition, to make us go mute out of fear of their raw power. But if we overcome that fear, they lose. And this is why the establishment hates this billionaire entertainer/businessman--he's encouraging the regular folks to stand up and say: "We're just not gonna take it anymore!"

Trump may well be a nutter, but what he's tapping into is anything but nuts.  This is going to be fun to watch!
