Get ’em skeered and keep the skeer on ’em
General Nathan Bedford Forest
Let the Thing be Pressed
It seems no day can go by without the Trump administration driving the left absolutely nuts and the executive order suspending travel from the list of countries already identified by the Obama administration as problematic is certainly no exception.
The cable networks of course are happy as it gives them something to report and the professional protesters are happy as it guarantees them a payday via Mr. Soros and company but the real winner is, you guessed it, Donald Trump.
When you have your surrogates on the air saying things like:
We won’t apologize for keeping Americans safe
the end result is going to be all you might want.
Even better if the protestors at airports interfere with travelers trying to travel (and no doubt they will) it will not endear the sorosbots to those travelers.
But the best part is this, within a few days airports around the world will be implementing these rules and the hubbub of this weekend will be gone, after all it’s going to be pretty hard to protest people who never make it to the country.
Now the left has one advantage here, because of the astroturf nature of the protests as long as the paychecks keep coming they, unlike the tea party, can maintain protests indefinitely and will have the MSM solidly behind them, but because Trump keeps things moving at his White House never pausing for air, it’s going to be very hard to keep the outrage up when there will be something else that outrages them within a day or two.
As Scott Adams put it:
He’s creating so many opportunities for disagreement that it’s mentally exhausting. Literally. He’s wearing down the critics, replacing their specific complaints with entire encyclopedias of complaints. And when Trump has created a hundred reasons to complain, do you know what impression will be left with the public?
He sure got a lot done.
Even if you don’t like it.
And of course it’s even harder to keep up the outrage if one manages to solve the syrian refugee problem with one phone call when Obama couldn’t get it done in two years.
I’ll give the last word via Glenn to Joel Kotkin:
Politically, the open borders rhetoric helps Trump. Even in California, three-quarters of the population, according to a recent UC Berkeley survey, oppose sanctuary cities. Overall, more Americans favor less immigration than more. Most, according to a recent Pew Research Center study, also want tougher border controls and increased deportations. They also want newcomers to come legally and adopt the prevailing cultural norms, including English.”
Honestly, I think Trump’s encouraging the freakoutrage on purpose here. The more the Democrats shriek about not “normalizing” President Trump, the more they de-normalize themselves.
Trump who is a media expert knows this and will no doubt keep up the skeer as long as he sees advantage to it.
