(Fred Weinberg) – So the whole world (seemingly but not really) is upset with Donald Trump because he went after a Federal Judge who he thinks is screwing him. The naysayers, backed by mainstream media megaphones, are howling “racist”, “bigot” and all sorts of dog whistles aimed at riling up the people who wouldn’t vote for Trump on a bet, anyway.
Here’s why the average voter either doesn’t care or would give Trump the Medal of Freedom for what he has already done:
Federal Judges have ridicules amounts of power. They can ruin most people with the slap of a gavel or the stroke of a pen.
It isn’t easy to question their authority much less criticize their rulings.
Unless you have the kind of substance (both wealth and megaphone) that Trump has.
In short, the average voter understands that by using his substance to go after a Federal Judge, he is also sticking up for the average guy or gal who cannot. (Just like Mark Cuban did when he decided to fight insider trading charges instead of copping a plea. And won.)
There was a fairly snarky piece in the Wall Street Journal last week, written by a fellow named Joseph Epstein, which attempted — with the faux intellectualism of the effete — to explain Donald Trump’s appeal to the great unwashed masses.
He begins by telling his readers that he would sooner have his thumbs removed than vote for Donald Trump.
It was an inauspicious start to his conclusion that, indeed, it is the very success of progressivism which has led the poor unwashed masses to want their country back.
Minus his faux intellectualism, he’s right.
The left’s agenda has — in terms all of us but Epstein understand — pissed the average American off so much that we are willing to select an unconventional weapon — Trump — and send him to Washington with marching orders to fix things so the average American can live in his or her own country again without fear of being a victim.
Is Trump of lower quality than, say, a professional politician who has spent his or her entire career feeding the voters bovine feces?
Of course not. In point of fact, he is of much higher quality because, in the words of a Virginia Sheriff, he speaks out so quickly he doesn’t have time to make up any lies.
That, in point of fact, is why the left and their sycophant effete intellectuals are so scared of him.
They know he would revel in fundamentally untransforming America.
But there’s a much simpler truth to why the guy or gal who shops at 7-11 and WalMart likes Trump.
He resonates when he tells us that America is run by stupid people.
The average American sees stupidity in our government every day and we mostly feel powerless to stop it.
It’s everything from speed traps to illegal immigration, from the school suspension of a kid for chewing a pop-tart into the shape of a gun to the transgender potty patrol of the President. It’s the President drawing a red line he ignores to ISIS taking back everything we spent thousands of lives achieving. And it’s talking about helping the middle class while everybody in politics is busy screwing the middle class.
Donald Trump represents a riverboat gamble. Throw the bums out and see if this guy is better. He can’t be worse.
And that is why he has the support he has.
If he begins to sound like the conventional politicians the conventional politicians want him to sound like, it’ll be President Clinton they’ll be inaugurating on January 20, 2017.
So, they need to let Trump be Trump.
It may be America’s best strategy for the future.
