220 lb Sociopath Thug: AAAAAAAAAAAA!
Batman, The Dark Knight Returns #2 1986
I think the Harvey Weinstein left have no understanding what they have just done when it comes to Brett Kavanaugh and Donald Trump so for the sake of their futures I’m going to explain it to them.
Imagine if you are a public figure, say a congressman, or judge or an established or rising star in media.
Now imagine for a second if a person with vast resources was willing to invest a large amount of money say $150,000 over the course of one year to research your life and find incidents that might destroy you as a public figure.
Imagine if there such a person willing to spend this money to hire private investigators to talk to every teacher, every high school classmate or sweetheart. To dig deep enough to find anything even slightly untoward, from a college party to a meeting with a colleague, to a weekend away. Imagine there was money to look up every person who had a grudge with you over the years who might have a different memory of events than you do and get such people to talk.
How well do you think you would stand up to this kind of scrutiny?
Now imagine that you know of such a person with the resources to do this to you if he so choose, furthermore imagine that this person you know has a reputation for being thin skinned about personal attacks and has a reputation for hitting back hard when someone goes after him.
Finally imagine that knowing all these things you spend two years demonizing said person, demonizing the people who work for him, condoning physical attacks on such a person and attempting to destroy the reputation of anyone who dares freely associate with him and doing so with the knowledge that during the time you are doing these things said person temporarily does not have access to his vast resources to retaliate.
What do you think will happen the day that he once again has access to said resources to spend as he sees fit? I think such a person just might decide to use said resources to take revenge on these folks.
Donald Trump will not be president forever, but when he leaves office either after a first term or a second he will once a again be a private citizen with vast resources at his disposal and a very long memory. Given how the Democrats and the media have treated him culminating with the current attack on Brett Kavanaugh what do you think the odds are that he decides to invest in such an enterprise? I think right now the odds favor it.
Given Trump’s billions it would be very possible for citizen Trump to dedicate $125 million dollars to such an enterprise. Based on my $125K per figure quote that I gave he could finance investigations of 1,000 such public figures. That would be enough to crawl up the ass of every sitting Democrat member of congress and every single sitting federal judge who was appointed by a democrat with money left over to include every single ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, CBS television host who has gone after him and most if not all of the talking heads to boot.
Now normally an ex president doesn’t get involved in such things after leaving office but with the incredible attacks on him combined with Barack Obama breaking this tradition do you really think for one moment that Donald Trump will sit back and not take revenge on these people once he’s out of office, and remember he was deeply involved in many of them and likely has heard plenty of stories about these jokers to start with over the decades.
I think these people have no idea what they are going to unleash and if they are the slightest bit smart will start to reverse course or they will wish they were the thug from that Batman comic.
