Trump is down in the polls. The pollsters give Hillary an easy victory. She’s ahead in every poll, in every swing state. Trump’s campaign is a mess. Somewhat ironically, it’s underfunded and poorly managed. Hillary has a well oiled solid campaign machine behind her. Going by conventional wisdom, she should be in for a sweep.
But I just wanted to put on my record my doubts. I feel there is a strong possibility that Trump is a lot more popular than he appears to be. I also want to mention that I am in no way a Trump supporter. I feel that Trump is the very definition of a fascist. I’ll be relieved if he loses. But, I fear that it might not so happen.
I feel that the world over, there is now a silent revolution in progress by common people against the elite. Ordinary people are saying NO to constant bullying by a rootless global liberal class that has gone way over the bend of insanity. This global elite is characterized by rampant intellectual dishonesty, extreme cowardice and cartel like behavior bordering on racketeering.
What are the tools of bullying used by this elite? It is words like “racist”, “sexist”, “homophobic” and by far the most ironically named “Islamophobe”. A phobia is, by definition, an irrational fear. My mother, for instance, has a deep seated fear of lizards… LOL! Go tell the families of the hundreds of people slaughtered in Orlando, in Dhaka, in Baghdad that the fear of violent Islamists is an “irrational fear”. In India, the words “communal” and “intolerant” fall into the same category. These words have simply become slurs that are used in the hope of silencing an opponent rather than tackling an argument.
For a long time, common people in the enlightened free world have let these elites trample over everything dear to us. In India, we are communal if we say Bharat Mata ki jai, we are intolerant unless we all sport skull caps and one eminent liberal even suggested that we must fast at least one day during Ramzan in solidarity with our Muslim fellow citizens! If we play Holi, we are wasting water. If we celebrate Durgapuja, we are Aryans oppressing people who belong to other races in the silly imagination called the Aryan Invasion Theory. If we celebrate Diwali, we are polluting the earth. If we celebrate Raksha Bandhan, we are patriarchal. Even Yoga is a tool of oppression. Enough! Any time we make the slightest expression of our culture, there’s a feminist or a secularist or an environmental nutjob ready to shut us down. It’s basically like they want to strike down our entire culture and history with a death blow to the head, slit open the body and perform an autopsy, showing us how cancerous every single organ is.
It’s not just India. Free people everywhere are getting the same treatment from the global elite. The worst affected are college campuses, where a liberal mafia has laid siege to every single breath.
Want to eat Japanese food? Don’t you dare overcook the sushi…or you will be committing the crime known as “cultural appropriation”.
And don’t you dare ask for evidence of your racism and sexism, because the liberals have invented a term called “micro-aggressions”. It is used to describe racism and sexism for which there is no evidence. No wonder, the fear of the mythical “micro-aggression” rules the American campus.
Don’t want grown men standing next to little girls in urinals? You must be “transphobic”.
Kids in Britain are coming home from school with forms asking them to choose between 23 different forms of gender identity!
And most of all, don’t you dare say “Merry Christmas”, or you are insulting all the people who don’t celebrate Christmas.
Do you remember the Indian mother who got into trouble in Norway because she used to feed her child by her own hand? The government in Norway wanted to take the child away. Apparently, the government run by the elite knows how to feed your child but not you.
My favorite example is from Australia, where ABC Australia recently began a debate on whether parents should be banned from reading to their kids in bed. Why? Because research shows that caring parents can give kids an “unfair advantage” over other kids who may not have caring parents!
Yeah, they want to come into your home, ban you from reading to your kids and hand them a form asking to choose between 23 forms of gender identity. And then they wonder why people are fed up.
And the hypocrisy of the elite looks even more stark when contrasted with the kid glove treatment meted out to cultures that are truly savage. When a wild mob of savages goes on a rape spree in a German metropolis, the police and media go numb with fear. The leadership, drunk on global liberalism, blames German women for being too loose! In a small English town, there were as many as 1300 minor girls raped by a secular gang and the media would not admit to that… The liberals think they can keep a plug on people’s anger by using Orwellian media control techniques.
The worst that has happened is that by crying wolf over everything to suit their selfish needs, liberals have cheapened terms like “racist” and “sexist”. A growing number of people are fed up of hearing themselves criticized over “micro-aggressions” no matter what they do. The new reaction is this:
Screw it! If they are going to call me a racist xenophobe anyways for slightly cooking my sushi, I might as well go back to REAL racism.
That was the sentiment underlying the Brexit. What is fascinating is that the pollsters got it completely wrong. Polls are generally quite reliable in homogeneous European countries (compared to India). And Brexit wasn’t an election with a complicated multi-party setup…it was a simple Yes/No question. The pollsters should really have got this one right.
But the pollsters didn’t. What it probably means is that there is now a substantial silent vote bank. These voters are scared to reveal their choices because they don’t want to be bullied by liberals. They don’t want to be mocked for being unfashionable and out of step with the latest fad in liberalism. But they vote. They vote with a vengeance.
I fear the same might be happening with Trump. Trump is the candidate who appeals to voters that are fed up of political correctness. In an Orwellian political environment where people are walking on eggshells all the time, hoping not to trip up on the latest anti-racist guidelines set by the unelected Supreme Council of the Global Elite…Trump’s overt racism feels like a breath of fresh air. And his followers are basking in the sense of liberation. Trump’s words are providing a catharsis. When Trump treats the media like the scum it is, people cheer. Why? Because when Nidal Malik Hasan shot dead 13 American soldiers at a US military base in Fort Hood Texas in 2009, there was not one mediaperson with the moral courage to even call it a terrorist attack!
All across America, there might actually be a silent majority that is secretly celebrating the stuff he says, but is scared to take on the stigma of being a Trump supporter. If the global elite doesn’t mend its ways, the world may be in for a nasty surprise this November…
