Jim Goad: ‘Dangerous Don’ and his dangerous detractors
Jim Goad writes:
I’m starting to notice a pattern here—Trump’s legions of naysayers always manage to sound far more bombastic and insane than Trump ever does. For all their claims about his “fear mongering,” it’s readily apparent who’s hysterically and desperately flailing in their attempts to stir a giant boiling rancid vat of fear here. Listen to the fear. Observe the hyperbole. Everything Trump’s critics say is far more unhinged and fearful than anything he says.
For the anti-Trumpers outside the One Percent, those brainwashed peons who view Trump as the embodiment of human evil, he also presents a significant danger—he threatens to destroy the false egalitarian dreamland that’s been drilled into their heads since infancy. But it’s a fake world anyway, and it needs to be destroyed because it’s highly dangerous to sculpt public policy and sustain a culture based on false premises.
