Remus writes at the Woodpile Report,
…The leftists aren't merely wrong, they're dishonest and malevolent. They still hold us, our values and our heritage in contempt. They still mean to destroy the reputations and careers of dissenters. They still adore illegal aliens, jihadists, dindu thugs and the perverts du jour. They still insult and demean us and teach our kids to despise America, us and themselves. They still mean to trash what remains of the Constitution.
…Winners don't demand a truce, losers do. For guidance in this, see Patton, Puller, Nimitz, et al. Winners dictate terms and keep pummeling 'em until they're accepted.

Will Trump press his overwhelming advantage quickly and decisively or will he devote himself to “healing”? The difference is what separates a movement from a detonation. We've had enough weepy, unwarranted magnanimity
…The news media's post-election chorus of endlessly expressed inexpressible shock reveals journalism as it actually is. One needn't wonder why the press made an embarrassing spectacle of itself. Once again they constructed an alternate reality on an underfit foundation and praised it in gushing detail while dismissing doubters as hopeless rubes . Once again they repeated and enlarged talking points handed them by the designated winners, or supplied them outright when a need went unfulfilled.
there will be a backlash to the backlash too. Shall the press again be surprised we talk among ourselves?
