CONSERVATIVES ARE DOING JUST FINE
By SUZANNE DOWNING
Four years ago, public schools and universities offered counseling for students traumatized by the Trump win.
Parents dropping their students off at urban schools around the country from San Francisco to Boston reported that teachers were weeping uncontrollably, and students were having anxiety attacks. Counselors were advising non-white students that they should fear the new Trump Administration.
Cornell University hosted a “cry-in,” with hot cocoa and tissues on hand.
Yale University held a “primal scream” event to allow traumatized students to vent, and the University of Pennsylvania featured a puppy and kitten therapy session, so students could snuggle their grief away.
University of Michigan Law School scheduled a “Post-Election Self-Care With Food and Play” with crayons, Play-Doh, and bubbles. The event was cancelled after publicity led to public ridicule of the school, led by conservatives on Twitter.
University of Michigan-Flint created “safe spaces” for students to receive counseling. Many schools and nonprofits just called it a day off for mourning.
And the riots. Oh, so many riots. At universities across the country, the protesters chanted: “F‑‑‑ Donald Trump!” with fists pumping in the air. Many were “peaceful but fiery.”
It seems like just yesterday, but it was Nov. 9, 2016 when large riots broke out in various parts of the country, and protests followed in Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Philippines, Australia, and even Israel. The riots continued for four years, radicalizing a generation as the Democratic Party became more informed by its radical wing. Pussy hats, “believe all women,” Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and Wall of Moms capped off the collective tantrum by rioting every night in the summer and fall of 2020, a curiosity that has been all-but ignored by the media.
Even on Election Night, protesters swarmed through Washington, D.C., which was, by then, largely boarded up against the expected violence. Urban America looks like a war zone even today.
Across America, there are 70 million Trump voters who are not rioting, even though many of them feel the election was not only stolen, but that free and fair elections may be gone forever, due to the anything-goes voting procedures now being accepted across the states. Most Trump voters think ballots appeared as needed in several states.
But the Trump voters are going to work, taking care of their families, and hoping for the best for their nation. They understand that their candidate was flawed and yet, was a fighter for them and all Americans who believe in the Constitution.
Trump voters also see this as an opportunity to retake the House of Representatives in two years, as Joe Biden and Kamala Harris inevitably bow and curtsey to the radical Left, which doesn’t represent mainstream values of most Americans.
The results of the 2020 election are still inconclusive at this writing, and the chain of events that is leading to a probable Biden presidency is deeply unsatisfying.
But what we’re not likely to see are Republicans rocking in the corner with a coloring book and a cup of hot cocoa, a pack of tissues at the ready for the next uncontrollable ugly cry.
They’re busy keeping America great, with or without their chosen president. They’re busy reloading for 2022.
