‘Deplorables’ Can Put Up a Powerful Resistance

By staying motivated and sticking together, Trump’s legions can make the Dems wish they’d never “won” the election.

For a cabal that just “won” a presidential election, the Democrats and their media brethren don’t seem too thrilled by it. Like shoplifters, they appear to be far more enamored of the fact that they got away with something than what, exactly, they got away with.

Yep, it looks like they turned in enough fraudulent ballots in enough key states to have made Joe Biden president. But that’s like stealing a Zagnut bar or an $8 bottle of bourbon. Now that you’ve stolen it, what’re you going to do with it?

As proof, look at the biggest news story from last week — rather, the biggest news story that didn’t have to do with the Biden Crime Family. Instead of excitedly talking up their guy’s grand plans for governance, they’ve been reduced to arguing that his wife — the one with the garbage doctorate in educationshould be called “Dr. Jill Biden.” And this even though The New York Times routinely failed to extend the same courtesy to a Trump cabinet member who happens to be one of the world’s pre-eminent neurosurgeons.

Talk about small ball. And talk about a loser of an argument. Call me “X” or else!

As Deplorables, we should be happy to slug it out with them on this turf; to assail, deride, and lampoon the Bidens and their party at every turn. Why? Because it’s hard for an administration to do much damage when it’s a laughingstock. Ridicule, done right, is a devastating weapon. And what object could be more ripe for ridicule than a political party that expected to win big but instead got roundly rejected by the American people?

Besides, we already have plenty of great material.

As Glenn Reynolds writes, “This election was supposed to demoralize [the Deplorables], crushing President Trump and his supporters in a double-digit landslide that would give the Democrats solid control of the White House and Congress — and, with a little judicious court-packing, of the judicial branch, too. The Deplorables would be made to realize that they aren’t in charge, that if they want to ride, they’ll have to (in Barack Obama’s famous words) ride in the back.”

“Only it didn’t work out that way,” Reynolds continues. “The big congressional victories turned into lost House seats for the Democrats. And the presidential election was hardly a crushing victory. For an election to really take, the losers have to admit that they’ve been beaten. And to admit that they’ve been beaten, they have to think they actually lost fair and square. Not many Trump supporters think that.”

Anyone out there think Trump lost fair and square? Didn’t think so.

Reynolds argues that even without all the sworn affidavits of electoral irregularities and outright fraud, we’re still left with “the undisputable fact that Big Media and Big Tech put not just a thumb, but both hands on the scales to influence the result.” If that doesn’t animate our side, nothing will.

We should stick around, we should stay angry, and we should do everything in our power to resist. As Reynolds puts it, “By staying motivated, the Deplorables can become the Unconquerables.”

And if the other side takes offense, we should simply remind them that dissent is patriotic.
