The Elite Get A Well Deserved Bullying From Donald Trump

Donald Trump is often characterized by the establishment media (and his vanquished opponents) as a bully. 

A bully, as you know, is a guy who picks on smaller and defenseless targets; like Governor Jeb Bush with his $100 million war chest, the Wall Street interests that have put over $50 million into Hillary Clinton’s campaign, and the truculent Muslims and other agents of political correctness who, through their vast influence in the Donald Trumppolitically correct establishment media, are trying to bend every aspect of American life to their will – those defenseless little guys.  

The reality is that Donald Trump is no bully. The real bullies in American society are the Far Left elite, the activists and advocates for special rights for newly invented “minority” groups, the judges and government bureaucrats that impose them at the point of a gun on reluctant Americans, and the millionaires and billionaires who fund shadowy organizations to advocate for open borders, more immigration, and trade deals that are wrecking the quality of life for millions of American families. 

The bullying by the Far Left elite of average Americans who simply want to be left alone has become so oppressive that the laws of physics and politics were bound to create an equal and opposite reaction, and in an unlikely (and unpredicted by most pundits) turn of events billionaire Donald Trump has become the personification of that reaction. 

A large segment of the country class electorate rightly feels betrayed by the ruling elite of this country and Donald Trump has gone to great lengths to make sure voters understand that, even though he’s a billionaire, he’s one of them, and not part of the coastal elite. 

In fact, he’s made himself into the message carrier and counter force to virtually the entire coastal elite agenda.  

Last August in his article “Yes, Pander To Trump On Immigration” National Review Editor Rich Lowry explained why Donald Trump’s message on the immigration issue may have sounded like bullying to Trump’s elite targets, but was music to the ears of America’s hard-pressed working families:

What Trump offers is an entirely different framework for considering the issue. It is populist rather than elitist, and nationalist rather than cosmopolitan. It rejects the status quo rather than attempting to codify it. It puts enforcement first and dares to ask whether current high levels of legal immigration serve the country’s interest. In short, it takes a needed sledgehammer to the lazy establishment consensus on immigration. 

And most importantly Lowry joined us in our view that the Trump plan is so uncontroversial that it should qualify as pablum: “Real immigration reform puts the needs of working people first — not wealthy globe-trotting donors.” Who could disagree? 

Well, those who Trump “bullied” during the Republican primaries, like Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Marco Rubio among others.

Those Republicans who reject the Trump candidacy because of Trump’s alleged “bullying” would do well to re-read Ronald Reagan’s 1980 acceptance speech wherein he delivered this indictment of America’s ruling elite:

The major issue of this campaign is the direct political, personal and moral responsibility of Democratic Party leadership--in the White House and in Congress--for this unprecedented calamity which has befallen us. They tell us they have done the most that humanly could be done. They say that the United States has had its day in the sun; that our nation has passed its zenith. They expect you to tell your children that the American people no longer have the will to cope with their problems; that the future will be one of sacrifice and few opportunities. 

My fellow citizens, I utterly reject that view. The American people, the most generous on earth, who created the highest standard of living, are not going to accept the notion that we can only make a better world for others by moving backwards ourselves. Those who believe we can have no business leading the nation

In Trump’s formulation the crisis and its authors were similar:

And that the Republican Party would get 60 percent more votes than it received eight years ago. Who would have believed it? The Democrats on the other hand, received 20 percent fewer votes than they got four years ago, not so good. 

Together, we will lead our party back to the White House, and we will lead our country back to safety, prosperity, and peace. We will be a country of generosity and warmth. But we will also be a country of law and order. 

Our convention occurs at a moment of crisis for our nation. The attacks on our police, and the terrorism in our cities, threaten our very way of life. Any politician who does not grasp this danger is not fit to lead our country

Far from being a bully, the key to Donald Trump’s campaign, and indeed a key to his entire political world view, may be found in a few paragraphs of his acceptance speech that he addressed to America’s working men and women, and especially this:

My dad, Fred Trump, was the smartest and hardest working man I ever knew. I wonder sometimes what he'd say if he were here to see this tonight. It's because of him that I learned, from my youngest age, to respect the dignity of work and the dignity of working people. 

He was a guy most comfortable in the company of bricklayers, carpenters, and electricians and I have a lot of that in me also. I love those people. 

Donald Trump won the Republican primaries and the GOP nomination because he convinced a large percentage of America’s country class voters – bricklayers, carpenters, and electricians – that he would stand for them against the abuse and oppression of elite policy and opinion. 

Country class voters know a bully when they see one, and they believe they are being bullied daily by an out-of-touch and insulated elite that holds them in contempt, they understand that the guy who punches your oppressor in the mouth isn’t a bully, he’s your champion. If Donald Trump is a bully, then he’s the much needed counter-bully the country class has been waiting for.

Well said, sdofaz!

I was not for Trump initially, but I certainly am now! And what is this nonsense the GOP is putting out about Trump possibly dropping out???!!! What????????!!!!!!! The GOP must really be scared....GOOD, be afraid, be very

The media is Trumps enemy

It is the lame stream media who are trying to bring Trump down with constant lies. This Kahn controversy is a joke. This has nothing to do with the hero son. Did KAHN really believe he could make political attacks against Trump, without Trump responding. When folks get involved in politics, it's not a one way street. Kahn opened the political ball, and Trump ran with it, as he should have.

Establishment elites on both sides of the aisle

This country does not belong to the NWO elites. This horrid administration has made the gap between the people and the elected politicians quite clear. It took all of us by surprise that the rinos in the GOP and congress were not with us on the constitution, our legal rights as citizens of this country, and defending our sovereignty. The rinos are just another form of NWO opportunist that seem to be more with the democrats and liberals than against them. Thus the reason today that McCain and Rat Ryan are likely done in politics thanks to the fed up LEGAL constituents in WI and AZ. And we have good GOP conservatives running against them both in each state. Go Ward in AZ.

Both men represent the NWO establishment rinos. They do think the legal constituents are stupid and will comply with their horrid decisions. That is why there is a big disconnect between the voters and the establishment from their parties to their sitting elected politicians on both sides of the aisle. This has gotten bad enough that everyone who can vote is likely going to do just that. Their NWO agenda, the fundamental dismantlement of our constitution, division of power and amuck behavior of all federal agencies under the control directly or indirectly of this administration has driven every legal voter in this country to register and vote. We all know now that complacency has been a mistake and vigilance is necessary to assure our rights, our constitution, our sovereignty survives this current administration's and horrid congress' attempt to turn this country into something more in line with the current oligarchy or tyrant run countries around the world. Not here, not ever and it is time to send that message loud and clear to those still in congress. Vote em out, turn em over particularly if it is clear they are rinos or dems. Both affiliiations guarantee those noted as such are not friends to the legal voting constituents of this country.

To conclude here is to note Hillary is supported by the illegal aliens, the welfare class, the imported muslim brotherhood, the HB anything foreign imported workers from some really lousy trade agreements, establishiment elites, the rinos and the dems. Trump is supported by the working legal citizens. Anyone with any job or who wants a job should be able to judge the difference here.

My list of reasons to vote for Trump are as follows: Jobs for legal citizens first. Close the border and allow only legal immigrants to stay. Enforce all the laws on the books. Enforce e-verify in every state and across the nation uniformly. Stop allowing anyone not in this country legally access to any public entitlements including welfare of any kind. Until able to vet the middle east hordes, help them in place in their own countries, do not import them here. Stop the obamacare disaster, the government cannot manage the VA system, whatever made anyone imagine they could manage the entire health care system for the country? Go back to the open market system this administration dismantled. Another point here is make congress settle for anything they vote for us, no exceptions ever. Demand term limits to end the political career politicians. Bring back the format our forefathers intended, just public service and do your duty then go back to your life and a real working career.
And it is time to clean up the welfare programs too. There are generations of welfare families, this has to be addressed. It has destroyed even the pretense that these families should get jobs and become part of the work force.

That is just a start, there is much room for improvement and we all need to get this rolling in the right direction.
