Yes it’s here. The social event of the decade for the right on, politically correct, and publicly virtuous extroverts of the British middle classes – Trump is coming, and it’s party time!
What’s not to like? You get to spend the day in a tribal throng making yourself feel good shouting at the straw man with golden hair erected by your peers. You can walk tall, knowing that you are better than others who don’t join in, those ignorant folk suffering from Stockholm Syndrome at the hands of the evil oppressor with the orange face.
Then when you get home you can read about how you are a part of a movement making the world a better place, you can see it on the TV. Look there I am! I am making a difference!
But suddenly the mist of self-aggrandisement clears. Who is this over-confident and self-righteous person really? What is really going on here?
For those of us who know, that sad truth is that hordes of people are protesting Trump because they don’t actually know what’s going on. They don’t know that conservative or traditional social values are very important. They want to believe that it’s a simple and easy thing to do what’s right, that they can go on a day out with their friends, write a few meaningless and shallow platitudes on a board, and that they are doing something worthwhile. But it’s much harder, and much more complicated than that.
Should they be pitied? The mostly childish and spoiled self-righteous gangs of what can only be accurately be called bullies fighting a cause created by self-interested rabble rousing champagne socialists? After all they are mostly young and mostly relatively ignorant. Maybe their heart is in the right place – after all didn’t most of us have more left wing views when we were younger? Maybe they should.
But the unfortunate reality is that they will be painted as the righteous in the pictures of the mainstream media. They will be described as the ones that care (while all the time they don’t really understand what taking it seriously actually means). Yet they will be the ones acting like cunts, trying to overturn by force and occasional violence the democratic and political process that has caused Mr Garrison to take office, and subsequently visit this country as a head of state. They have to believe that over 50% of voters fit the caricature of the selfish white person or gullible fool that has been created by their media stars and heroes.
It takes a lot of effort to understand the world, and a lot of humility. You won’t see this in the eyes and behaviour of most of these Trump protesters that we will soon be seeing on the telly and in the papers. What you will see is what can only be described as a bunch of morons, mindlessly following some bullshit narrative that has evolved from the inane chattering of the prosperous-enough-to-have-to-pretend-to-give-a-fuck classes.
Maybe not all of them are cunts, but a lot of them are, and most of them will appear to be cunts while they trawl the streets like zombies protesting something that they barely, if at all, understand.
