    Some people hate Trump. More people hate liberals

    Some people hate Trump. More people hate liberals

    Count me in.

    I used to not hate liberals. I used to think we should pat them on their heads like the foolish children they are and tell them to run along, play in traffic.

    But more and more they've become totally unhinged. And more dangerous as they become more unhinged.

    Now I see they need to be obliterated (their power and influence, not them personally - although.....) to stop and reverse everything they've ever touched.

    For Republicans, winning never gets monotonous.

    The Karen Handel victory in the Georgia 6th district special election repeats a pattern depressingly familiar to the left. There have been 4 special congressional elections since the hated Trump took office and Democrats have lost all 4. In each contest, the left predicted victory - largely based on what they perceived was hatred of President Trump by ordinary Americans which would generate "enthusiasm" for the Democratic candidate and drive people in overwhelming numbers to the polls.

    Each of the 4 Democratic candidates was well financed and received strong support from the national party. Each Democratic candidate's campaign was augmented by hundreds or thousands of activist  volunteer Democrats. And each and every race was seen as a referendum on Donald Trump; not his policies as much as the man himself. He is Hitler and Howdy Doody all rolled into one, a traitorous SOB (although most liberals only hint that Trump has committed treason), a threat to the rule of law, and a joke as a president.

    And each and every time, liberals have been shocked to discover that ordinary people don't view the president that way.

    In Georgia 6th, reality once again intruded on liberals' fantasies. They once again failed to grasp that some people may hate President Trump. But more people hate them. And unless they can grasp that fundamental point, 2018 will turn into another GOP victory.

    The resentment of ordinary Georgia voters begins and ends with the $23 million that poured into the district from Democratic donors across the country - most prominently, from Hollywood and Silicon Valley. Handel's money also came from out of state; but it didn't come from people who looked down their noses at Georgia voters and tried to instruct them on what they should think.

    And that brings us to the national media. More than any other Democratic allied group, the media promoted the narrative that Trump was so unpopular, a deep red congressional district was almost certainly going to flip.

    Of course, the press professed to be neutral and all those negative stories trying to wrap Trump around Handel's neck were what people were really thinking.

    One tweet last night sort of blows that nonsense out of the water:

    Have you ever seen such long faces? Who are they trying to kid?

    As long as the faces were at CNN when it became clear Handel was the winner, imagine the chins hitting the floor at the DNC. They were so sure of victory, so confident of success. If $23 million can't buy them a House seat, where do they go from here?

    Actually, I think the number was $30 million. Most of it from California. You know, concerned constituents in the district *WINK*WINK* trying to stop that vicious Trump guy.

    The media is thinking the same thing. The following is from CNN:

    With the inflated price tag and the 15-month lag time between the special election and the November 2018 midterms, the contest might not hold much predictive value.

    And if Ossoff had won? How "predictive" would that result have been?

    After the initial glum reaction of pundits to Handel's win came the excuses. It was the weather, it was the big GOP advantage in registration, it was early voting, it was Republican outsiders, it was history, it was counter historical, Ossoff wasn't liberal enough, no unions, blacks didn't turn out, and the most common complaint from the left about ordinary voters...

    The people refused to vote "their interests."

    All of those excuses fail to get to the crux of why the left keep losing. Ordinary Americans simply don't like them very much. And when Hollywood and Silicon Valley unite to tell them they are stupid, ignorant, racist, homophobic, hate Muslims, and shouldn't love America so much, what do they expect the reaction from ordinary people will be?

    Republicans are not representatives of the people any more than Democrats are. But they speak the language of the ordinary voter and usually don't put them down. The coastal elites who run the Democratic party and liberal establishment cannot disguise their contempt for ordinary Americans. In Georgia's 6th district, that smug, self-righteous sense of superiority played about as well as one might expect.

    Until the Democrats can learn to mask their hatred of the holi poli, ordinary people will hate them more than they hate Trump and the Republicans.

    (I think they meant hoi poloi there, not holi poli.)

    Yeah. Well hold your breath until the libs figure out how to stop showing who they really are!

    The libs are now 0-4 in special elections. Yet they still claim most of the country is on their side.

    You can't make this stuff up!
