The Sky Is Falling: Leftist Panic and Hysteria

By Eddie Howell

The anti-Trump left, reeling from Hillary Clinton's defeat, is angry that she was defeated by someone of approximately opposite political philosophy and quite politically incorrect. While decrying the Trump Administration as fascist, the left is happily employing fascist and communist tactics themselves in their struggle against Trump.

The elites are promoting hysterics among the leftist press, academia, and media in what is meant to look like a grass-roots movement, but is guided by paid mobs and rabble rousers who see opportunities to participate in the violence. There are probably some sincerely high-minded idealists who think their demonstrations are expressing justifiable outrage against a bad administration, but they don't realize they are being manipulated and used by unsavory foes of American tradition and liberty.


Tucker Carlson of Fox News tries to interview an angry “anti-fascist” who wants the president forced out. This is a good example of “Trump derangement syndrome.” No discussion was possible with her.

While this seems an obvious extreme and unreasonable expression of hostility against Trump by some leftist activist, it is not fundamentally different from what Democrat politicians are doing daily to try to undermine the Trump presidency, recent examples being their campaigns against General Flynn and Attorney-General Sessions.

The presidential election, an honored American tradition pitting hard-fighting campaigns against one another, worked just as it was supposed to. Donald Trump won, and no one seriously questions that the outcome was correct. Yet the leftists are stirring opposition to the idea that the election was legitimate. The fact that Trump did not win the popular vote does not, in fact, affect the propriety of the election. Trump's off-the-cuff style of campaigning is seen as an opening for every kind of unreasonable and irrational accusation and complaint. Yet there is no substance to the accusations of racism, bigotry, etc. The left's obsession with a supposed Russian conspiracy concerning the presidential election is a smokescreen excuse for more hysterical finger-pointing.

The globalists are particularly disturbed by Trump's theme of America First, and his declared anti-globalism. They fear that other countries' generous support from the U.S. in various ways is under threat, and to some extent it is. Trump opposes having so many arrangements with other countries that put America at an unfair disadvantage. Now some other countries think that the U.S., which freely helped former enemies after World War II, and greatly helped rebuild much of the world, must now support the plans of the globalists for their New World Order.

International trade deals and political developments have threatened American sovereignty and the liberty of our citizens. America should never be under the control of any other country or outside entity. The United Nations has become an organization in which America pays a large part of the cost of receiving criticism and anti-American propaganda from America-hating countries. Also, the UN seems to be the preferred vehicle for globalist rule, through Agenda 21 and various other efforts to control humanity at every level.

President Trump's view of things is vastly different from President Obama's. Obama, the “citizen-of-the-world” globalist, seems to have done a thorough job of indoctrinating the already left-leaning individuals and groups. He is praising their angry demonstrations. He is allegedly controlling their efforts. Of course, the liberal spokespersons say they don't “condone” the all-too-frequent and severe violence, but they don't really seem to have much of a problem with it. The supposed “responsible” leftists don't seem to mind paid mobs helping them push their agenda. They don't criticize black radicals for calling for policemen's deaths. They show no sympathy for families of murdered police officers. They don't mind that “sanctuary cities” have unnecessarily protected illegal alien murderers and other criminals. They favor open borders and they are OK with any number of people from anywhere coming into America. If they were watching Steve Bannon at C-PAC, they must have felt shivers up their spines when he mentioned “deconstructing the administrative state.”

Their “The Sky Is Falling” approach undermines America, and appears to be leading to eventual prosecutions for sedition if not treason. The political value to liberals of their extreme contrived anger, and crocodile tears over everything they read or hear about Trump is doubtful. Anger is politically about all they have. They do not have reasonable arguments that come through the noise. Anger is not really much of a political strategy. People eventually tire of it. Meanwhile, a lot of unnecessary damage is done, people are beaten or murdered, homes and businesses are destroyed, and everyone suffers, except the globalist elites.

The Democrats' true character is on display. They, and their media cronies, are not above lying, encouraging violence, and engaging in the politics of personal destruction, as well as increased name-calling and false accusations. This even includes criminal leaks of classified information. Obama's appointee holdovers must be viewed with suspicion and replaced, or simply fired, as soon as possible. These things also speak to the slimy political character of Obama. Some of the Democrats' activities are already over the line of criminality. Attorney-General Jeff Sessions will have, as a large part of his workload, trying to undo the damage inflicted on America by Barack Obama and this gang of radical leftists.
