The Deplorables are now the Disconnected too

By Scott Weiser

In his zeal to delegitimize President Trump, Timothy Carney, senior political columnist at the Washington Examiner writes “When you’re the candidate of the disconnected and the socially isolated you can’t count on your base to make the journey with you. You’re left governing alone.”

Reacting to the tempest in a teapot over Trump’s skepticism about the crowd at the inauguration Carney blames the dearth of attendees on the specious notion that the 62,979,636 Americans who voted for Trump are “socially disconnected.” He tries to bolster his argument by claiming that 46.1 percent of all who voted in this election are “the slice of America where civil society is most eroded.”

This of course is liberal progressive propaganda at its finest. The difference between those who voted for Trump and those who voted for Clinton is a mere 2.1 percent, or 2,864,974 votes, if we discount entirely the as-yet undetermined potential for fraudulent and illegal voting in favor of Clinton. The popular vote doesn’t elect the President, for very good reasons, but for Carney to disparage nearly sixty-three million citizens as “socially disconnected” is a grave insult to our entire system of government, not to mention an astonishingly ignorant statement. It was in fact the social connectedness of those voters that gave Trump his victory.

Going on to malign Trump supporters further he writes “Trump’s base is the portion of the population that lacks a connection with neighbors and that lacks a strong faith community.” This is utter nonsense. Anybody who knows Conservatives and Republicans knows full well that they are some of the most connected, faithful people in America.

It is this group who insist on, as Obama put it, “clinging to their guns and bibles” that liberals despise and loathe. This loathing exists because modern liberal progressivism is tinged by rabid anti-theism that strives continuously to undermine the rights of the faithful to freely exercise their religious beliefs. Democrat liberal progressivism is deeply infected by the philosophy of Karl Marx, who wrote “The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is required for their real happiness.”

It is neither Trump nor the 46.1 percent who support suing religious cake bakers or photographers out of business merely because they do not wish to exercise their artistic talents in the service of gays. It’s neither Trump nor the 46.1 percent who support the extirpation of all signs of religious belief from the public square.

It is Democrat liberal progressives and other leftists who want to completely eliminate any sort of “strong faith community” who do such things. They do so in order to force people to place their faith in government, not in God and not in themselves and their nation, with the intent of making them more pliant, more obedient and easier for the government to control. When the government provides your home, sustenance and medical care, the government controls your vote and your economic future.

They will promise “real happiness” to the proletarian masses just as Stalin and Mao did if only they will give up their faith in their God and in themselves and give it to government. But the political left never actually provides promised happiness, it provides only an illusion of happiness through propaganda, indoctrination, false promises and an inevitable resort to tyranny.

What this election proved is that people are not nearly as gullible and credulous as leftists thought they were. When their faith, their freedoms and their communities were threatened by the Marxist ideals and globalization threat posed by Clinton they turned out in force to keep her from the presidency.

More people did not show up at Trump’s inaugural because as Carney admits, they don’t live in and around Washington D.C. like those who can afford to march around demanding more largess from the public treasury. Trump supporters are hard-working Americans busy living and working and they showed their political strength on the day when it counted, at the polls.

Then they went back to work supporting their families, their neighbors, their churches, their police and fire departments, their communities and their nation, secure in the knowledge that their President, Donald Trump, will do his job as CEO of the United States and make America great again.
