It was for the sake of this day that he had first decided to run for the Presidency, a decision which had sent waves of astonishment throughout the Imperial Galaxy—Zaphod Beeblebrox? President? Not the Zaphod Beeblebrox? Not the President? Many had seen it as a clinching proof that the whole of known creation had finally gone bananas.
It's wakeup time in America. Donald Trump has been elected President.
As a social conservative, I've got little in practice to be happy about a Trump Presidency. He's generally in favour of trannies being treated like their delusions are the truth, not interested in defending free speech, awfully cold on the universal right to firearms, in favour of socialist healthcare funded by confiscatory taxation, and against free trade. In fact, the only good news about a Trump Presidency is that it makes all the right people so dreadfully upset. Here's far-left columnist Paula Simons upset over Trump's victory coinciding with two women -- one decent and one fundamentally evil -- withdrawing from the PC Alberta Leadership race. Brain-dead left-wing celebs like Alec Baldwin and Sarah Silverman were near tears, and social justice warriors are angrily marching in the street. As seems so much to be the case in 20th century politics, I'm more geared to making my political opponents more unhappy than me than I am more happy than them. Call it the "Russian at the end of the world" political philosophy, if you like.
Probably the best line about the night comes from Small Dead Animals commentator "Deplorable Terry Tory of Canada" who writes:
Watch a revolution. Live. On TV. Unfiltered. Watch MSM heads explode. This is going to be EPIC.Well pray they did, it appears! [the post title also comes from the SDA comments, this one from Gord Tulk. -ed]
I have prayed for a day like this for at least 12 years.
God's sword: The internet.
God's crusaders: Matt Drudge, Andrew Breibart (RIP), O'Keefe, Assange, Alex Jones and many others...And of course up here our own Kate and others like Ezra the Rebel.
God works in mysterious ways: Cue in Donald J. Trump.
May God carry us through this historical moment,the destiny of the entire World.
Pray my freedom fighting friends.
The President is always a controversial choice, always an infuriating but fascinating character. His job is not to wield power but to draw attention away from it.
AS Mark Steyn puts it...
Trump also proved you can shatter the glass ceiling and lead the biggest Republican Party victory (White House and Congress) since 1928 by saying every 20 minutes "outrageous" things that outrage no normal person and that, even if you're ever so mildly peeved by them, are never going to take priority over the economy or health care or foreign policy when it comes to determining your vote.Steyn also brings up the "dissing of McCain" which I also thought was going to sink Trump (but didn't!).
Over the next four years be prepared for President Trump to fail to achieve things he promised, fight constantly with the violent SJW mobs, the media, and even his (well, theoretically his) own House and Senate. I'm not even sure he will find out he wants the job that badly, and we may find Trump added to the short (and very old) list of U.S. Presidents who didn't persue a second term. This wouldn't be the worst thing for Trump, or America, and particularly the GOP.
But that's the future. For the present, enjoy the crying left. Don't be afraid to rub it in their noses. They didn't let up in 2008, 2012, or 2015, did they?
