dehumanizing invective. is it a disease?

A License To Hate. Victor Davis Hanson – “Note the force of such dehumanizing invective that transcends political differences. Trump voters were not just mistaken in their political allegiances.”

What is it that really smells here?

“These outbursts were all voiced from highly educated elites (Caputo has a journalism degree from the University of Miami, Deutsch graduated from the Wharton School, Jeong from Harvard Law School, Strzok received a master’s degree from Georgetown, Wilson attended George Washington University). And all engaged in vicious and cowardly stereotyping of a demographic in a manner that they assumed involved no downside. Rather, the smears were delivered on the expectation of winning approbation from their peers. And they did in twitter-fueled competitions to find the crudest pejoratives.

But the hatred was not confined to the media and politicos, but rather also came from the very top of the Democratic Party.

What is again odd about these examples of open progressive racist, cultural, and class contempt for the American interior, is not just how ubiquitously politicians and journalists voiced them, but also how candidly and indeed confidently they repeated notions of smelly, toothless, ape-like, lazy “garbage people.”

Never Trumpers hardest hit. Don Surber – “As Bungling Bob Mueller’s investigation looks more futile by the hour, the Never Trump crowd has turned on him. They know he has squat.”

“They are trying to dissolve the Crazy Glue that stuck them to the Russian conspiracy as it becomes clear that there was no Russian collusion — and that the FBI had no business investigating President Donald John Trump.

The State of the Shutdown. David Catron – “Dem SOTU stunt signals their growing desperation.” get out your dictionary: “Having been lured into a political oubliette and chained to a wall, they are now being systematically immured by a man upon whom they have heaped countless insults.”

“The damage has now reached the point where Pelosi and Schumer are facing growing revolts in their own conference, particularly among freshman Democrats in the House, over their refusal to even negotiate with the President.

And it goes without saying that there are other Democrats who want an end to the shutdown — the furloughed federal workers. … He put their dilemma in the form of a question on Twitter: “Do the Dems realize that most of the people not getting paid are Democrats?”

The Democrats and the legacy “news” media immediately denounced Trump’s claim as false. … The political contributions of government “workers” in the 2016 presidential campaign tell the tale, as the Hill reported at the time

These hopelessly lopsided contribution percentages soundly refute any claim that a significant number of Republicans have been furloughed during the shutdown.

Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer might as well face it. President Trump has spent most of his life negotiating with real estate developers, unionized construction companies, and New York zoning officials. He comes from a business environment that makes the Beltway look like a chapter of Habitat for Humanity. So, to put it bluntly, they have already lost. Trump has them in a deep hole, chained to the wall, and is busy with brick and mortar cutting off their only source of political oxygen. The country is with him on this and he knows it. Border security “trumps” bureaucratic comfort. Time to make a deal, #Chancy.

It’s all the misplaced hand-wringing about federal workers, most of whom are overpaid and underworked, and all whom will get their back pay once government reopens.”

Pelosi’s stunt is just more progressive de-platforming. John Sexton – “it seems pretty clear from the left’s reaction that what’s happening here is just more de-platforming of Trump.” … “In other words, to the degree it’s possible, don’t let him speak.”
