In re: The Left’s response to the Trumps testing positive for COVID-19, Charles Krauthammer, 2002: “To understand the workings of American politics you have to understand this fundamental law: Conservatives think liberals are stupid. Liberals think conservatives are evil.”
You do not debate with evil. You do not negotiate with evil. You do not compromise with evil. You do not tolerate evil. You destroy evil. It’s a religious crusade.
The Right is “The Other.”
I’m reading Evan Sayet’s new book The Woke Supremacy. In it he relates the story of Jimmy Fallon as host of the Tonight Show having a guest on the September 15, 2016 episode:
“Fallon, whose show was number one in the ratings at the time, did what late-night talk show hosts do in a normal society and booked one of the biggest names and most entertaining guests he could find. He then did what late-night talk show hosts do by being engaging, fun and funny. Fallon was warm and welcoming as he treated his guest in exactly the fashion he’d treated all of his other guests, and in the style that had made him number one in late-night in the first place.
“The trouble was that the guest was Donald Trump.
“By the next morning, Variety, one of the two uber-powerful trade magazines for the entertainment industry, came out with a hit piece that set the tone and let all of Hollywood know what the Powers-That-Be in the (Woke) Supremacy expected them to do.
“The word most often used by (Fallon’s) attackers for the “wrong” he had committed was that, by treating Trump in the way the TV show host treated any and all other people, Fallon had served to ‘humanize’ the Other.”
The Trumps aren’t human to the Left. No one who isn’t Progressive is.
This will not end well.
