Inner Emptiness Descends on the Trump Haters

A lot of good articles are being written about the craziness of the Trump-haters — I love the use of the word “emptiness” here in the title of this article by Jack Wisdom at American Thinker:

Incredibly, in an open letter to students at the City University of New York, Barbara Bowen, head of the Professional Staff Congress, the union that represents the public sector faculty, wrote her dark and dreadful thoughts for all to read.  She has conjured an apocalyptic vision because of the election of Donald Trump to the presidency of our country. At one point in her letter, she astoundingly states, “Many of us feel shattered and threatened by the result of the election last week. Violence of all kinds suddenly seems much closer — violence against the climate and against other nation-states, but also against women, people of color, the poor, Muslims, immigrants, Jews, children, people with disabilities, lesbian, gay, transgender and transsexual people and others.”

Let’s unpack the assumptions underlying this horrific vision.

“Climate” for her is a living organism. It is an entity that she expects will experience “violence” because Trump has not been raising an alarm over the climate change predicted by some models.  Wars are posited as an inevitable consequence of Trump’s America First chauvinism, and the palpably fearful tone suggests imminence of those wars.  Brutal repression of a variety of groups is on the horizon.  Women will be attacked and harmed by this p**** grabbing adulterer with the sexy mannequin wives.

BLM — rioting and looting in response to the “racism” that is part of white America’s DNA (according to Pres. Obama) — will be stopped. Rioters and looters will be hit over the head, punched, and beaten if they do not go quietly into the paddy wagon.  This is her fantasy from which she extrapolates Trump’s hatred for blacks and the poor.
