What that CNN clip of Don Lemon, Rick Wilson, and Wajahat Ali tells us about the election ahead

By now, nearly every citizen near a television or computer has seen the clip of Don Lemon, Rick Wilson, and Wajahat Ali mocking and degrading Trump and his supporters in a particularly poisonous way.  Andrea Widburg today points out what a gift this is to the Trump campaign, and the GOP has already released an ad using it. 

Don Lemon is actually the stupidest man on television, as Mark Levin often remarks, so no one expects anything other than rank infantile behavior from him.  He is a child in an adult body and fortunately has no children.

Rick Wilson bills himself as a Republican strategist, but he has long been a vicious anti-Trump hysteric.  He is no Republican; if he were, he would embrace President Trump, who has implemented more conservative policies than Reagan did in his first three years.  Like all the other NeverTrumps, he hates this president more than he believes in his own previously held conservative principles.

Thanks to President Donald Trump, we now all know who the phony conservatives were and are.  Their objections to Trump are to him personally, the fact that he is not one of them.  This club of self-appointed super-elite elites simply cannot abide a clever fox in their henhouse.  They are a pathetic bunch of whiners, but not all of them are as cluelessly vicious as Rick Wilson.  He's a really big player; his most recent job was working for Evan McMullin's presidential campaign.  The most distressing thing, if you read his bio, is that he has adult kids!  And we wonder how and why so many young people are so venomous and spiteful.  Perhaps it is not just social media.  Perhaps they are learning it at their parents' knees.

Why is Bernie Sanders ahead of his opponents among young people?  Bernie is a lifelong communist.  Thanks to James O'Keefe, we have been treated to the insane, anti-democratic rantings of some of his field workers. Bernie, though very wealthy himself, never tires of teaching hate for anyone and everyone who has worked hard and succeeded in life.  The young people drawn to him have been taught since kindergarten that America is a racist nation beset by inequality.  They've been taught that capitalism, the economic system that has lifted more humans out of poverty than any other on the planet, is to blame for that inequality.  They've not been taught the wisdom and glory of self-reliance and personal responsibility.

This is not to suggest that all young people have been so afflicted, but the fact that Bernie is in the lead among the young is a tragedy.  They are wholly ignorant of the truth about communism and socialism and the hundred million–plus deaths caused by those systems in the twentieth century.  Many of them have never been taught about the Holocaust, and they are becoming as anti-Semitic as the Hitler Youth were in the 1930s.

Our progressives have seen to it that we have regressed.  African-American college students now demand segregated dorms!  They have no grasp of the ideals for which MLK sacrificed his life.  They are taught to be angry and dissatisfied with their country and their lives.  They are certainly being taught that white people are their enemy.  While Rick Wilson is not a professor, we all know there are countless professors who talk exactly as he does to their students.  Indeed, they do.  American higher ed is no longer about education; it is hardcore indoctrination of anti-American radical leftism.  (There are a few exceptions among schools and professors.)

What we saw on that CNN clip of Lemon and Wilson isn't shocking; the underlying attitudes are the norm on that network, as they are on MSNBC as well.  The big three networks are very nearly on the same page.  George Stephanopoulos, formerly of the Clinton War Room, couldn't bear to allow Jay Sekulow to answer questions for reporters after the day's impeachment trial in the Senate last Friday and ordered the video feed cut.  SNL and all of the late-night comics are even more brutal toward the president and his supporters.

This is who the Left is today: cruel, vicious, disrespectful of any opinions that differ from its own.  And because those are the only outlets the Left sees, leftists think this brand of personal attacks is not only acceptable, but necessary, their coin of the realm.

It is possible that Rick Wilson's adult children are as embarrassed by their father's appearance in that clip as they should be, but chances are better that they are cheering his vitriol with pride.  Most parents, at least of a certain age, tried to raise their offspring to be good citizens — honest, respectful, polite, compassionate, and good.  But the Rick Wilsons, Don Lemons, Lawrence O'Donnells, the Chris Matthewses, Jimmy Kimmels, Samantha Bees, and Rosie O'Donnells, represent an entirely different model of parenting.  They are all bullies, playground bullies.  With the exception of Lemon, all these people are parents.  They are truly terrible examples, the poorest of role models for their own children, who will most likely emulate their hostile, slanderous hatred of all persons with whom they disagree.

People like Rick Wilson and Don Lemon have learned nothing, absolutely nothing from the election of Donald Trump.  But by 2016, conservatives had become sick and tired of being maligned by the likes of Rick Wilson and elected a man who fights back, who can give as good as he gets.  "Leftists' meanness toward those with whom they disagree has no echo in the normative right," said Dennis Prager.  Truer words were never spoken.  Rick Wilson's, Don Lemon's, and Wajahat Ali's brand of bitter mockery has been nearly wholly the province of the Left.  That Trump has adopted some of their tactics is why his supporters love him.  No other Republican has ever deigned to respond to the Left's derision of conservatives in kind.  It was about time.
