The Great Post Election Panic of 2016 Tells Us Something

Just wanted to share a thought with you.

As I watch various groups of voters take to their fainting couches, or vent their fury, at the election of Donald Trump as president, a theme emerges:

They’re freaking out over some purely speculative pain he’s supposedly going to dish out to them. Why? Because he’ll be a dictator, or a bad man, or because he’s a conservative, or because he’s not one, or whatever.

The meltdown is over their unshakable belief that Trump is their enemy and/or sees them as enemies. Naturally, having won, they figure, he will now punish them.

I think they believe this because it’s what they would do, had they won the great victory of 2016.

Doubt it? Take one group: same sex marriage advocates. Upon winning state after state, they won a breakthrough SCOTUS ruling, the Obergefell v. Hodges case.

The President-elect has indicated no interest in re-litigating it, nor has he make a move against the gays-in-the-military policy of his predecessor.

But when they won, the SSM activists first toasted their success, then went on a vicious legal rampage against bakers and florists who didn’t wish to cater to them. Why was that so important, at a moment of historic victory? Why go after religious institutions and colleges? It felt good, that’s why.

So now, having been caught by surprise on the night of the 8th, the left are probably assuming Trump and Co. will do to them what they did to the side they beat.

I have no idea if he will, but no wonder they’re panicking.
