The Futility of Anti-Trump Boycotts

Aug 16, 2017 — Edward Watson

The anti-President Donald Trump phenomena is a uniquely unparalleled mass hysteria that, to my knowledge, has never been witnessed before in America history. Vastly larger than what was done to Presidents George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan, we’ve never seen such a massive pre-emptive attempt to bring down a legitimately-elected president – before he even took office or did anything as president.

Even today, seven months after his inauguration, the “elite” still do not understand how a man they despise could be elected and how he has kept his base of supporters despite the unrelenting demonization and smearing by the media, academia, celebrities, government bureaucrats, and by the political elite of both parties.

Trump and the Lilliputians

Aug 13, 2017 — Edward Watson

I attempted to rise, but was not able to stir: for, as I happened to lie on my back, I found my arms and legs were strongly fastened on each side to the ground; and my hair, which was long and thick, tied down in the same manner. I likewise felt several slender ligatures across my body, from my arm-pits to my thighs. I could only look upwards; the sun began to grow hot, and the light offended my eyes. I heard a confused noise about me; but in the posture I lay, could see nothing except the sky. In a little time I felt something alive moving on my left leg, which advancing gently forward over my breast, came almost up to my chin; when, bending my eyes downwards as much as I could, I perceived it to be a human creature not six inches high, with a bow and arrow in his hands, and a quiver at his back.—(Jonathan Swift, Gulliver’s Travels, Part 1, Chapter 1. [1726])

The rejection of President Donald Trump has entered a new phase, one that has the highest chance of victory, but also one with a very limited window of success. The earlier media attacks, Russian collusion allegations, elector shenanigans, leaks, demonstrations, and riots have all failed in their goal, and shows “death by a thousand cuts” is a flawed strategy and even worse tactics. The conclusion is obvious: Emotional hysteria and illegal activities do not work against Trump. They were expecting him to lash out like a dog who is constantly being poked with sticks to justify their claim he’s rabid and needs to be put down, but his self-control has kept him popular with his base and frightened the Republican leadership into outwardly supporting him.
