WASHINGTON, December 1, 2017 — “Once you get them running,” said Confederate General Stonewall Jackson of his military strategy, “you stay right on top of them, and that way a small force can defeat a large one every time.”
And no one knows this better than President Donald Trump.
Trump’s culture wars: A solitary soldier
Thanks to Twitter, Trump has opened many fronts in his one-man war on race-baiting NFL kneelers, weak-sister Republicans – aka., John McCain – and fake-news personalities like MSNBC’s perpetually angry ventriloquist Joe Scarborough and his wooden-head marionette co-host, Mika Brzezinski.
The Bobbsey twins
When Democratic Congressional leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer failed to show up to a White House meeting designed to prevent a government shutdown on December 8th, the liberal duo said they are ready to see the U.S. government walkout for the sake of illegal alien “dreamers.”
That’s when Trump took to Twitter.
“Meeting with ‘Chuck and Nancy’ today about keeping the government open and working,” Trump said. “Problem is they want illegal immigrants flooding into our Country unchecked, are weak on Crime and want to substantially RAISE Taxes. I don’t see a deal!”
Trump didn’t have to say he is working to “Make America Great Again.” Chuck and Nancy’s willingness to shut down the U.S. government, to drive up its expenditures, to increase its debt and taxes on behalf of non-citizens, clearly shows Trump puts “America First.”
Chuck and Nancy clearly don’t.
Not Mexico’s best
That was born out a few hours later when a jury of twelve “Sanctuary City” San Franciscans, most of whom live in Nancy Pelosi’s 12th Congressional District, exonerated an illegal alien for the vicious 2015 shooting death of Kate Steinle.
You may recall that Bay Area authorities refused to hand Jose Ines Garcia Zarate to immigration authorities after the criminal illegal alien was released from county lockup, in violation of federal law.
“A disgraceful verdict in the Kate Steinle case! No wonder the people of our Country are so angry with Illegal Immigration,” Trump later tweeted.
The Senate’s ignoble savage
And on a less serious note, while honoring Navajo veterans of World War II – the “code talkers” that were so instrumental in the U.S. victory at Iwo Jima – Trump could not help but use the occasion to juxtapose the real heroism of real Native Americans as a means to mock the sham nobility of fake aboriginal and Senator from Massachusetts – not to mention Trump’s possible 2020 Democratic presidential rival – Elizabeth Warren.
- Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
“You were here long before any of us were here,” said Trump to his Navajo guests. “Although we have a representative in Congress who, they say, was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas.”
It was a reference to Warren’s savage appropriation of Cherokee heritage while teaching law in the late 1980s at the University of Pennsylvania. According to the Boston Globe, “Several newly unearthed student and personnel records… touted Warren as a minority faculty member,” with Harvard Law later listing her as the institution’s “first woman of color.”
Pow Wow Chow
Warren even contributed several Cherokee recipes to the 1984 cookbook “Pow Wow Chow,” whose dishes were said to come from “families of the Five Civilized Tribes,” which must have stirred dark passions in the breasts of surviving members of North America’s 495 indigenous bands.
A tongue-in-cheek review of the tome on Amazon’s website states:
“I’ve received nothing but rave reviews from my colleagues after whipping up treats from this cookbook in the faculty lounge kitchen. Admirers of Pow Wow Chow may also enjoy Bow Wow Chow, an Indonesian-influenced cookbook from a former professor now in politics.”
Another wag simply stated,
“I have serious reservations about these recipes.”
It seems everyone wants to get into the act, and that’s the point. Trump is leading a nationwide movement to ridicule those who consider themselves our intellectual and political betters, whether they be on the left or right.
It’s hard for our self-described superiors to tell us to shut up and act like docile, servile subjects while our sides split from uncontrollable laughter.
Is it any wonder Schumer said last October,
“It’s long past time for the president to quit his daily compulsion to engage in Twitter feuds and instead get to work for the American people.”
Twitter is a weapon, and an effective one at that, in the Trump culture wars. And Trump IS “working for the American people” by engaging in “twitter wars.”
And Trump is effectively using it to diminish the influence of shrill, long-winded bores, from “Crooked Hillary,” to mainstream media “fake news,” to “Pocahontas.”
