There was an interesting conversation between Joe Rogan and “reformed SJW” Jamie Kilstein, when they started discussing the “extreme left.” Rogan pointed out how the left created the Trump phenomenon, leading eventually to his election.
Now trigger warning, if you watch the whole video (which we recommend), you may hear things you disagree with, probably starting with the abortion discussion. That’s ok. You’ll be ok. Because you are not a DNC pajama boy subsisting on products made entirely from soy.
This is the part we want to focus on:
Around the time of Occupy Wall Street, things got really heated up. And people started moving way left and some folks started moving way right. And I really truly believe to this day that the way-left is what started the whole Trump movement. It’s in response to the way left. All of these s***heads got together and they didn’t like being accused of being @$$holes and ableists and rapists and whatever it is by the ultra progressives, so they went far right and “alt right.” The altRight was essentially people who didn’t identify with these old men who were bankers, but they also didn’t want to have anything to do with these ultra lefty progressives that were calling EVERYONE a racist, EVERYONE a rapist, EVERY man’s a piece of s***…
I disagree with one important point: it wasn’t just the “altRight” which reacted to the extreme left. You can’t honestly claim that close to 63,000,000 people are all part of the altRight. Though I’m sure many, if not most of them, felt exactly how Joe describes. A recent CATO poll backs somewhat backs up the sentiment.
Also, Hillary Clinton is a terrible human being. Possibly a witch.
This is why we joke about Leftists for Trump 2020 (see Rapper Macklemore Leads Chant of ‘F*ck Trump’ at Concert and Video: Seth Meyers Parrots Eminem. Tells his Trump-Supporting Fans to Get Bent). The left doesn’t get it. Instead of engaging in some soul searching, the left believes they should yell louder and insult more. That’s the same as policy, yeah? Close enough.
It’s the definition of insanity: doing the same things over and over and expecting a different result.
