Who? Whom?

The Washington Post asks:

Trump has lit a fire. Can it be contained?

This isn’t arson. It is the inevitable combustion of an oil-soaked pyre exposed to a continuous shower of sparks.

The Post should be asking: who built that pyre? It’s been long in the making, and its existence is due neither to accident nor negligence.

    To mix metaphors. Perhaps those tectonic plates are slipping.

    Well if the mad bomber, lets kill 25 million American’s Bill Ayer’s slithered out from under his rock and showed his face in front of the meme camera’s, the cultural marxists take the rise of the Dirt People very seriously. Trump is a guy running through Hell with an open can of gasoline. Hell is scared.

  3. “Hell is scared.”

    With another good reason — it has no fury like a Hillary scorned.

    The Zman coined it awhile back. Here’s a few pieces he wrote on it, originally if I remember he likened it to the cloud people verses the dirt people. I tried to find it, but here are a few on it. It is enjoyable writing. You and Zman have a certain critical thinking that is complementary, at least to me, as I like to read both you guys and there is a kind of phase line or threshold between yours thinking that works. He definitely has a provincial style that appeals.

    The fascist veto carried the night in Chicago. Dems, as usual wear the Brown Shirts. Trump is who he is and has a right to be. The Brown shirts are who they are and have always been. They are the Dem party. Brown shirt neo Communists. Doubt it? Look at their two candidates. Someone in this is trying to contain someone else. The GOPe is part of the bipartisan effort that wants the masses contained. Maybe not this time. We have had nearly eight years of an anti American disruptor in the White House. Maybe it is time we had four years of a pro American disruptor to replace him. But then Trump is Trump and a part of “The Art of the Deal” is the artful double cross. Careful ahead.
