Sore Losers, hoping to do work in such bad faith that those that lost the Democratic Election would happy to send the US into the abyss that just a week prior, the Dems were swearing that they would prevent.

Heres a section from the Manifesto of the leader of the Regressive Democratic leader Alinsky:

The first step in community organization is community disorganization.

The organizer… must first rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; fan the latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expression. He must search out controversy and issues, rather than avoid them, for unless there is controversy people are not concerned enough to act. . . . An organizer must stir up dissatisfaction and discontent; provide a channel into which the people can angrily pour their frustrations… you must agitate to the point of conflict.

and most of us, to our shame, went along with it, afraid to defend the victims lest we become one of them.


Not I. It's just in my nature to defend the most defenseless in the room. But it takes a strong heart, which is why you'll never hear me label myself a liberal elitist.

Garrison Keillor still anti-Gay Marriage?

I like Garrison Keillor but he is flat wrong in the editorial. That's fine, we all have the right to be wrong, as was proved by the media and Hillary in this election. Reading through the piece Garrison is doing his own 'butt-hurt' however I never considered him one of the 'liberal elite' that he labels himself in this piece. He needs to go back to the Prairie Home Companion roots and get back in touch with 'the people' and leave the elite snobs.

Keillor talks about what Dems can do while Trump's in office.

BOYCOTT ALL Rep/Con/Teas too.

How come IHLlary didn't release the Kraken hordes of IHL blue meanies in armors of political correctness to take back the election? She abused us of the spectacle we deserved, and just left us a tsunami of panty waisted, hankie twisting sobbing weenies.

... Prairie Home Companion roots and get back in touch with 'the people' and leave the elite snobs

Hmm, I read him to say that "Liberal Elites" were those who are "us" below immediately after his characterizations of blue collar Republicans who

... wanted only to whoop and yell, boo at the H-word, wear profane T-shirts, maybe grab a crotch or two, jump in the RV with a couple of six-packs and go out and shoot some spotted owls. It was pleasure enough for them just to know that they were driving us wild with dismay — by “us,” I mean librarians, children’s authors, yoga practitioners, Unitarians, bird-watchers, people who make their own pasta, opera-goers, the grammar police, people who keep books on their shelves, that bunch. The Trumpers exulted in knowing we were tearing our hair out. They had our number, like a bratty kid who knows exactly how to make you grit your teeth and froth at the mouth."

The players of Prairie Home Companion would be "us" the avid readers, the nerdly bunch of culture-philes he describes may be seen as snobs by the Trumpers who "exulted in knowing we were tearing our hair out."

Garrison evokes stereotypical personality types to say that it's time "us" moved on with our lives back to our own pursuits and beyond the long long media circus of the Trump election.

Wait until Jamie Dimon is Secretary of the Treasury and engineers legislation to make it legal for a bank teller to shoot a customer in the face and take their wallet and shit on his face.
