The election was cleverly orchestrated by the left. They knew how deeply unpopular Obama was, how even more deeply unpopular Hillary was, but that didn't matter. They mistakenly believed that with their election science, their identity politics, their sanctimonious stance on every divisive issue, from abortion to racism to misogyny, homophobia, Islamophobia, transgender-phobia, xenophobia, et-cetera phobia, the unemployed, and the poor, they had the votes to defeat white heterosexuals with jobs. That's it. They had the numbers. People with some kind of chip on their shoulders are more numerous than those who believe in doing their jobs and raising their families without government assistance or interference.
Trump is proof their science is flawed, proof that their models are wrong, proof that there are still more makers today, than there are takers. The full-freakout behavior of the mainstream media since after the election and especially since the inauguration is frankly astounding. Have you ever seen anything like this? Just WOW! The wolves in their sheep clothing have revealed themselves fully. We are witnessing the baying and circling of a pack of pissed-off hungry wolves denied their deserved bloody dinner.
In the last few weeks we've been treated to a veritable cacophony of ever-more hyperbolic and asinine accusations about the character, the temperament, and the ultimate goals of President Donald Trump. So finally, here we are. I believe that this article from The Huffington Post is the final absurd straw. The fake news, the lying mainstream media has gone full Hitler. The only problem with grasping at this final absurd straw, is ... They lose! You ass-hats lose! You've once again proven Godwin's law. Therefore ... you lose.
It is understood that hyperbolic and unhinged comparisons to Hitler and Nazis is tantamount to conceding any argument under discussion. If you go there it means you have literally nothing at all left to say in defense of your position. Violating Godwin's law is demonization times infinity. As such, wise men and women—wiser than tantrum throwing children—recognize that once you've gone Hitler, the discussion is over. Beat on the floor with your fists and howl away in the night about the sins of your fathers if you want to, but nobody is listening anymore. You lose. This conspicuously odious rancid steaming dump on the carpet is brought to you by The Huffington Post. Or, as I like to call, it HuffandPuff Post.Godwin's law (or Godwin's rule of Hitler analogies) is an Internet adage which asserts that "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Hitler approaches 1"—that is, if an online discussion (regardless of topic or scope) goes on long enough, sooner or later someone will compare someone or something to Hitler.Promulgated by American attorney and author Mike Godwin in 1990, Godwin's law originally referred specifically to Usenet newsgroup discussions. It is now applied to any threaded online discussion, such as Internet forums, chat rooms, and comment threads, as well as to speeches, articles, and other rhetoric where reductio ad Hitlerum occurs.
I have never been more acutely aware of the fact that I am Jewish than at this moment in history, with the newfound spike in anti-Semitism and hate crimes throughout the campaign season and since the election of the new President.
When asked about the impact of his campaign rhetoric on spiking anti-Semitism in a recent press conference, Trump somehow responded by congratulating himself on his election victory margins – and stated that he knew Jewish people, including his son, daughter, and grandchildren without addressing the topic at all. When asked about how his administration plans to respond to the undeniable surge in anti-Semitism at a subsequent press conference, he responded by calling the Jewish reporter’s question unfair, saying he hated it and found it insulting, and instructed him to sit down without offering any answer whatsoever – aside from blaming the press. Trump called himself the “least anti-Semitic person that you’ve ever seen in your entire life,” though refuses to outright condemn by name, show up alongside, step up to protect the targeted, or order an investigation of the spike in hatred, hate-fueled violence and hate crimes against Jews or other peoples; the President and Administration are deafeningly and dangerously silent on anti-Semitism.
An unprecedented 67 bomb threats have been phoned in to 56 Jewish centers across 27 states and one Canadian province since the start of the year has barely made headlines, yet invoked a paralyzing fear and terror in thousands of families, staff and community members of all faiths. A truck purposefully running over young Jews in Israel made the news cycle briefly. New Yorkers discovering and erasing swastikas from subway cars was a feel good story spotlighted for but a moment. A Chicago synagogue defaced with swastikas and a broken window is barely even searchable online.
How many swastikas is too many? One. How many slurs? How many hate crimes?
