A Nation of Wimps


Michael  Savage and leading psychologists are right!! Liberalism is a mental disorder. Thanks to liberals in those brain washing institutes of higher learning known as universities and colleges they now have what they call “safes paces” to shield them from any opposing opinion. You mean to tell me they are so weak they can’t confront an opposing idea?

Recently  at  a Pennsylvania University conservative speaker and columnist for Breitbart Ben Shapiro was scheduled to speak. As soon as they heard he was coming to their campuses they had to run and hide to their “safe space.” I’ve heard Ben speak and he’s no rebel rouser, but rather speaks softly and doesn’t shout like Hillary, yet they had to run and hide. What a bunch of wusses and wimps. No wonder our enemies don’t fear us or friends don’t trust us.

Students on college campuses across the country are getting therapy after being “traumatized” by a conservative speaker at their campus. The students did not actually attend the event or hear the speaker; the mere fact that it was happening on their campus was traumatizing!

This epidemic of student demands for “safe places” to protect against threatening words and ideas would make a great science fiction film, but unbelievably, events seem to be outpacing the political imagination. “Attack of the Trump 2016 chalk monsters” could have a terrific 1955 “B-movie,” but at Emory University last March, “Trump 2016” chalked on sidewalks was the cause for a campus-wide therapy session, led by the president of the institution! Trump as President? Oh! My! God! It’s enough to give a progressive  student nightmares– and did, apparently.

At the University of Missouri, Columbia, Brown, Northwestern, Harvard, UCLA, Wisconsin, and at far away Oxford University, students are seeking therapy to deal with threats from unsavory ideas that allegedly are so inherently threatening that the mere uttering of certain words triggers a mental breakdown. It’s Conservatives Who Need ‘Safe Places’ on Campus – Breitbart . These are the type of people who believe the government knows what’s best for them and will blindly follow the likes of Obama, Bernie Sanders and Hillary.

On the outside world are people who feel they’ve been betrayed by both political parties and look to an outsider like Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. Although Cruz is not an official outsider being a senator he has rebelled against the democrats and his own party at times so people follow him.

Trump is a businessman who doesn’t need the job but sees the country in trouble and wants to do something about it. He has the connections and power to do just that and turn things around. Critics have attacked him for being too harsh, boorish and boisterous, but if you notice he only gets that way after being attacked first. He’s not a wimp and has real back bone.

When Rosie O’Donnell made fun of his hair and weight and the fact he had several marriages it was only then that he called her a “fat pig” and I can’t disagree with him there. She was fired from the view twice and her own adopted daughter ran away twice from her because she couldn’t stand her. The media quickly made it sound like he called all women that when he didn’t. Trump pays his women executives more than his men executives and a woman architect designed and built Trump Towers. Hillary on the other hand pays her male workers at the Clinton foundation 35% more than her female workers.

During the debates the republican candidates asked Trump to sign a pledge that he would support the winner, he countered with a Trump negotiation ploy saying he would sign a pledge if they would sign a pledge saying they would support him if he wins. They all agreed and signed. Now only Bush, Rubio, Cruz and Kaisich are backing down from the pledge and are refusing to endorse him so far.

The New York Times came out with a five page article on all these women Trump allegedly abused. The article was quickly discredited by all the women as taking what they said out of proportion. Trump responded by mentioning bout the women Bill Clinton raped and abused and the media responded with shock and awe how dare he say such a thing. I myself heard and carefully studied all the accusation at the time when Bill was president and found them all to be credible and detailed and they never changed their stories over time. I still have all the newspaper clippings, cassette tapes and videos and books from that time.

Recently Robert Reich noted that Trump might win because screwed Americans  want someone who will kick ass. A new Washington Post/ABC News poll released Sunday finds Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in a statistical tie, with Trump leading Clinton 46 percent to 44 percent among registered voters. That’s an 11 percent swing against Clinton since March.

Political analysts have underestimated Trump from the jump because they’ve been looking through the rear-view mirror of politics as it used to be.

Trump’s rise suggests a new kind of politics. You might call it anti-politics.

The old politics pitted right against left, with presidential aspirants moving toward the center once they cinched the nomination.

Anti-politics pits Washington insiders, corporate executives, bankers, and media moguls against a growing number of people who think the game is rigged against them. There’s no center, only hostility and suspicion.

Americans who feel like they’re being screwed are attracted to an authoritarian bully – a strongman who will kick ass. The former reality TV star who repeatedly told contestants they were “fired!” appears tough and confrontational enough to take on powerful vested interests.

By the same token, in this era of anti-politics, any candidate who appears to be the political establishment is at a strong disadvantage. This may be Hillary Clinton’s biggest handicap. Robert Reich explains why Trump might win: ‘Screwed’ Americans want ‘a strongm

When I checked the comments to this article they all seemed to be young liberal college age kids calling Trump Hitler just like they did with Bush. The last I checked Bush and Trump weren’t sending Jews and people who didn’t look Aryan to the gas chambers. Say what you want about Trump,but at least he doesn’t have his college records sealed,doesn’t have a forged birth certificate and doesn’t use someone else’s social security number.I guess these commenters are in need of their safe space. 😀 Safe Spaces and Who REALLY Needs them on College Campuses  | Conservative Byt

  1. One should wonder how many alumni that call themselves “conservative” are still supporting events and donating large sums of money?
