It's official. Leftists have lost their minds.
Their reaction to the election of Donald Trump is plain bizarre.
It's so over-the-top.
John Oliver provides a perfect example.
“Last Week Tonight” host John Oliver took the extraordinary step of urging viewers on-air to donate to Planned Parenthood, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, the Trevor Project and other organizations serving communities that may come under fire during the Trump administration.From The Daily Beast:
The host of “Last Week Tonight” was fiery in the show’s third season finale Sunday, warning viewers in the most dire terms about what he sees as the threat to the nation now that Republican Donald Trump has won the presidential race.
“How the f— did we get here?” Oliver said.
Oliver urged viewers to donate to various non-profit orgs, including the Mexican-American Legal Defense Fund, the International Refugee Assistance Project, the Center for Reproductive Rights and the Natural Resources Defense Counsel. He also implored viewers to support top-tier journalism by subscriber to a major newspaper, or donating to the non-profit journalism collective or Pro Publica in order to help news outlets scrutinize Trump’s moves.
“It is going to be too easy for things to start feeling normal—especially if you are someone who is not directly impacted by his actions—so keep reminding yourself: This is not normal,” he said. “Write it on a Post-It note and stick it on your refrigerator, hire a skywriter once a month, tattoo it on your ass, because a Klan-backed misogynist internet troll is going to be delivering the next State of the Union address, and that is not normal. It is FUCKED UP.”
Democrats/Leftists are lauding Oliver for his remarks. Perhaps some Never Trump people are doing the same.
It's a page out of Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals.
Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, polarize it. Don’t try to attack abstract corporations or bureaucracies. Identify a responsible individual. Ignore attempts to shift or spread the blame.Oliver describes Trump as evil incarnate, personalized. Oliver polarizes. He declares war against Trump, screaming that the sky is falling.
These people need to get a grip.
Their reaction to this election is "not normal."
It can't be explained as a run-of-the-mill hissy fit. They're more than sore losers. They are mentally unbalanced.
