Peggy Noonan has explained, in a nutshell, why people still support Donald Trump (whether she knows it or not). Writing about the leaked Clinton emails, Noonan said, [emphasis added to quotes]
The big fact of the week, however, has to do with these words: They don’t like us. The Democrats, progressives and left-liberals who have been embarrassed by the latest WikiLeaks dump really hate conservatives, or nonleftists. They don’t like half the people of the country they seek to control! They look at that half with disdain and disrespect. Their disdain is not new — “bitter clingers,” “basket of deplorables.” But here it’s so unashamed and eager to express itself. …
Noonan nails the disdainful attitude leftist elites, such as Hillary Clinton and the Obamas, share towards evangelical Christians and Catholics. Imagining a conversation with her Catholic grandmother, she writes:
Grandma, being Catholic is now a step up. It means you’re an aristocrat! A stupid one, but still …
In the progressive world, a person is simply stupid, and “backward,” to believe in any religion.
Now of course Hillary suddenly professes to be a devout Methodist, as Obama claims to be a Christian, and Biden, Pelosi, the Kennedys, and Kaine claim to be Catholics. But everybody knows that’s all just for show. Another leaked email proves that Hillary admits to having a public face and a private face. To get the votes of those stupid religious “folks,” all leftists must pretend to be religious.
But We the People refuse to let the leftist/media cabal tear us away from Donald Trump. Noonan writes,
Here’s what you see in the emails: the writers are the worst kind of snobs, snobs with nothing to recommend them. In their expression and thoughts they are common, banal, dumb, uninformed, parochial.
I don’t know about you but when people look down on me I want them to be distinguished or outstanding in some way — towering minds, people of exquisite sensibility or learning. Not these grubbly poseurs, these people who’ve never had a thought but only a sensation: Christians are backward, I saw it in a movie!
It’s the big fact of American life now, isn’t it?
That we are patronized by our inferiors.
Trump doesn’t look down on us or act as if he believes he’s fundamentally or intrinsically worth more than we are. Hillary, who is not the smartest but may be the most corrupt woman in the world, does indeed look down on us all.
Choose wisely. Stay the course. Vote to
