The public moral disintegration and demeaning of an entire cohort of people reached its zenith with the globally televised meltdown by a theatre-full of showbiz people enraptured by Robert De Niro’s impotent scream of anguish, “Fuck Trump!”
He had nothing else to say. Nothing to offer but hate. He hates Trump as do so many in the room and beyond, with the kind of paranoia that trumps reason. When De Niro raised his clenched fists in the manner of a shaking bull, the room realised they had to give him a standing ovation. Thus they complied with the ruling orthodoxy in a single group think display of vacuity.
In a real way, this moment symbolises how morally bankrupt and hypocritical many of his critics are. They accuse him of dividing the country while they themselves are actually dividing the country with their venomous and irrational – often violence-tinged – outbursts. Chop off his head, punch him in the face, blow up the White House … and fuck him! Talk about hate speech. But the irony is that these aggressions do not hurt Trump, they hurt themselves.
Just as the left-leaning mainstream media has made itself unreliable and irrelevant to sensible readers, so too the Trump haters have made themselves irrelevant and the subject of ridicule. Their political opposition to Trump consists of calling him names. That’s how totally they have castrated themselves.
