The Morning Rant

"One of the slurs constantly being thrown at Trump by the left and their catchfarts in the media is that he's 'divisive.' This is such a stupid word. I mean, yes, he's 'divisive' in the sense that a sizeable portion of Americans voted for him and a slightly larger portion voted against him, but why is that his fault? It's not as if his campaign was all 'I want a vote from you, but you, yes you over there, your vote I don't want.' Trump never did that.

Also, Trump wasn't the candidate who called many Americans 'deplorable'. Trump wasn't the candidate who called many Americans 'bitter clingers'. Now, it's that sort of language that's divisive. Funny how the incurious mainstream media never calls out such rhetoric as 'divisive' when it comes from Democrats. They never tell their audiences that divisiveness is foundational to how progressives advance their agenda. They never tell their audiences that what progressives like to do is seize upon whatever grievances that may exist, rub them raw and pick at them until they're all bleeding, infected, and inflamed. Progressives foment divisiveness, they don't alleviate it.

And make no mistake, Obama's minions were very adept at this, so much so that by the time he left office, they had managed to turn America into an open wound. So Trump didn't cause division, it was already there when he got here. In fact, I think it's just the opposite: Trump didn't bring division. Division brought Trump."

(h/t Ava Armstrong)

Update: An excellent point from Monty James

What drives me crazy about sniveling that something is "divisive", is that our Constitutional order is based on division. It is meant to accommodate division peacefully. Someone crying about "divisiveness" is really complaining that everyone is not bending to his will.

You're probably not going to get the first one (without cheating). However, you may get the second one and then use his identity to make a reasonable guess as to the identity of the first.



Friday's celebs: Bollywood actress Catherine Tresa (or perhaps Tollywood, I think she may mostly be in Tamil movies) and Richard Karn from the TV series Home Improvement. I thought he had disappeared after that series ended and was off doing lo-ball infomericals or some such, but according to his imdb.com page, he's been pretty busy since then, and does not appear to have been lacking for work. Good for him.
