What’s important to remember is that Academia, the MSM and the Left-Wing kindergarten drum circle the Democrat Party has become are not acting like this because they’re like people on the upswing. Or even comfortable in the status quo. Instead they’re lashing out like people on the way out. Trying to prove how important and powerful they still are by making things up, by preening and crowing and smashing library windows at Berkeley.
But it’s not working. And they’re frightened. In the case of Academia because they understand all too well that the moment political winds allow employers (including the government) to rank potential hires and hire them based upon general knowledge tests* then it doesn’t matter how an individual is educated and the value of the silly Liberal Arts Degrees American colleges and universities are busy selling at $200,000 a pop, plunges asymptotically. And so since Trump is the symbol of this possible shift into open territory (i.e. a free market in education), they have to take him and his acolytes down by any means possible. In the matter of the MSM they’re already in open territory with the Internet eating them alive with independent news forums, blogs and its direct streaming of shows to computers, tablets and phones. And so they hope against hope that another Watergate, another presidential take-down, will give them a new lease on life. And as far at the Democrats themselves go in selling their soul to the identitarian devil they’ve made certain that every Hernandez who marries an O’Shaughnessy immediately switches party and that every Black working sooner or later does to. Which means they have no place to go but down. And they see that.
