With a hat-tip to our friend Bill Keezer, we give you a rousing essay by Daniel Greenfield on what has just happened in America. It begins:

This wasn’t an election. It was a revolution.

It’s midnight in America. The day before fifty million Americans got up and stood in front of the great iron wheel that had been grinding them down. They stood there even though the media told them it was useless. They took their stand even while all the chattering classes laughed and taunted them.

They were fathers who couldn’t feed their families anymore. They were mothers who couldn’t afford health care. They were workers whose jobs had been sold off to foreign countries. They were sons who didn’t see a future for themselves. They were daughters afraid of being murdered by the “unaccompanied minors” flooding into their towns. They took a deep breath and they stood.

They held up their hands and the great iron wheel stopped.

    This will go down as one of the best essays of this election. Thank you for posting it.
    I shared it to facebook and people I haven’t “seen” in months came along and “Liked” it – it is resonating with all kinds of people.

    One might be concerned with too ready identification with the ideas of a hostile elite that hates common Americans.

    ie who is this greenfield?

    Obviously this is becoming a major fault-line on the new Right: is it possible to acknowledge the persistent and disproportionate Leftism (and, wherever they are a minority, multiculturalism) of the Jews without descending into the repugnant anti-Semitism we see in this cartoon? (Let me be clear — as a civilized man I do not approve of grotesque pictorial caricatures of any human group: they are a low, and particularly undignified, form of propaganda.)

    This will require a substantial post of its own, I think.
