Yet, the Vice President elect Mike Pence responded as a very gracious man, demonstrating his credentials to be a world leader at a time when we need good examples in public office rather than ones who cheer on and epitomize the anti-truth, anti-God, anti-marriage, anti-family, anti-fathers, anti-freedoms of speech, religion and conscience, intolerant soldiers of intrusive government, state-elevating, individual-worshiping, corrupt, tyrannical rainbow fascism.
From Janet Albrechtsen at the Australian newspaper today:
"Those dismal numbers sprang to life these past few weeks on the streets of New York, Miami, Atlanta, Philadelphia, San Francisco and elsewhere when thousands of anti-Trump protesters showed their disdain for a democratic election result. Those city streets were full of those from a pampered generation who have rarely heard the word no. This is the safe-space, all-must-have-prizes, trigger-warning generation, the children of helicopter parents who have been taught they should be protected from what upsets them.
When the election didn’t go their way, they, like children, chose infantile tantrums over grown-up concession and respect for democracy. Their progressive tilt against democracy will only confirm to Trump supporters that they made the correct decision.
In New York last week, when vice-president-elect Mike Pence attended the blockbuster Broadway show Hamilton, many in the crowd booed him and the stage actors gathered to harangue him.
Revealing contempt for or ignorance of their country’s history, including the subject of the Broadway show, the baying crowd and hectoring actors proved why Trump voters felt utterly disconnected from insider elites. After all, as one of America’s finest founding fathers, Alexander Hamilton, told the New York State convention meeting to adopt the federal Constitution on July 27, 1788: “Here, sir, the people govern; here they act by their immediate representatives.”
Trump and Pence, not to mention the Republicans who will control both houses of congress, are the people’s democratically elected representatives.
In Australia, Roz Ward, the Marxist academic from La Trobe University, provided a living, breathing, berating insight into the Left’s hypocrisy. The woman who is responsible for the Safe Schools program in Victoria, embraced by Victorian Labor Premier Daniel Andrews, took to the streets of Melbourne to protest against Trump and then physically harassed a man wearing a Trump hat. Ward exposed the fact she’s not interested in anti-bullying but instead is committed to the new fascism where dissent from her views is not tolerated."
