If you have studied the Left for any amount of time, it’s easy to understand why Trump broke their brains. They are essentially children in need of a father figure and Trump was no Obama. Obama was the cool dad that when you brought your friends over was nice to them and may even offered them a sip of his beer. Trump was the dad that was going to embarrass you by farting in front of your in-crowd.
The people on the Right that hated him knew that he hated them. I don’t think it was because Trump had an ideological beef with them, rather he didn’t see the utility in their endeavors. Starting new wars comes to mind.
The group that hates him that makes no sense to me are the libertarian/anarchists. Sure, hate him because he’s a politician and a mass murderer. He can bring all the troops home and stop the wars. Continuing Obama’s wars was probably the worst thing he did. But buying into the “Trump’s a racist crap” is just ridiculous. He’s an elitist. Big difference.
And then there’s the ones who bought into Russia and Ukraine-Gate, who literally sided with the CIA in a coup attempt because they didn’t like him. The excuses were hilarious. Imagine someone who hates the State (allegedly) hating Trump so much more that they actually stood shoulder to shoulder with paid liars and killers. To this day I am perplexed that they bought into it.
Do I think Trump is “Batman?” No. Do I think he’s even an outsider? Nope. But he is enough of a wild card that he could fall into a policy or action that would make us happy; that could end some suffering. The CIA causes endless suffering and that’s who you choose to triumph?
Whatever we think of Trump, libertarians/anarchists should appreciate a bull in the DC china shop even if so many of his policies are tragic. (immigration – even legal – basically ended, tariffs, etc.)
Welcome to Biden’s America where you get Obama/W part two. Well, at least you know Russia is the enemy of the White House again. That’s not dangerous at all. /s
