Trump is America's red pill

I never watched "The Matrix" but I am familiar with this blockbuster because it impacted American culture, and still does 19 years after its premiere.

In the science fiction world of this movie, people can take the red pill or the blue pill. If you take the blue pill, you see a happy peaceful world.

If you take the red pill, you see reality.



That reality the red pill reveals is harsh because it robs you of everything you thought you knew, which is now untrue. I can see the appeal of the blue pill.

On the Internet, people who have seen the movie say that President Donald John Trump is red pilling America.

I agree.

He has shown that the leaders of our government do not particularly like our country. People who describe "America First" with deplorable words such as racist, Islamophobic, and xenophobic are not our servants, but rather those who want to rule us.

Trump has shown that the FBI, Department of Justice, and our national security agencies are corrupt and trying to undermine a duly elected government. The Deep State is real, if incompetent.

He has shown that they have sold out our national sovereignty in favor of globalism and open borders. The Republican Party which had embraced protectionism in 1854, when they formed the party, abandoned it when President George H.W. Bush declared a New World Order in 1991.

Trump has shown that neither political party cares about the working class. Trade deficits with China have accelerated the gutting of America's heartland, as factories shutter. Washington could not care less.

He has shown that Obama, who the press presented as the cleanest president ever, is a scum-sucking swamp critter who spied on Americans.

Trump has shown the gangs at the Weekly Standard and National Review are by and large a pack of charlatans posing as conservatives.

For years those Washington and Manhattan conservatives said social issues were a loser, and urged conservatives to ignore social issues such as abortion, and instead embrace economic issues. The problem was, their economic policies were Marxist. remember, Bush and Gorbachev devised the New World Order.

The bigger problem is social issues matter. We disappoint God by embracing abortion on demand.

Trump has shown what we face, and you can see why people prefer the blue pills that deny reality.

He may be crass and brash, but he is rational.

Boxing promoter Don King -- a longtime ally of Trump -- said it best.

"No one has carried this type of lightning rod activity since the 13 colonies wrote a letter to King George saying they wanted to discharge so they can be eliminated and independent Americans," King told Fox News.

Trump is up there with the best. He has pledged his life, his fortune, and his sacred honor to save this nation from becoming a banana republic overrun by foreigners.

We are in a revolution. Our declaration of independence is the Declaration of Independence.
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness
The Establishment failed us, just as Lord North and King George III did.

We gambled on Trump, and look what happened. We are the ones who are Woke.

Red pilled.

God bless Donald Trump.

God bless America.

Take the red pill. It is painful. The truth often is. But the truth is all we have.

  3. "The consent of the governed." What kind of garbage is that? We don't need your stinkin consent. Shut up and get back in line, slaves. Signed, The Deep State

    1. Demanding that those who govern us have our consent? Why that's a hate crime, isn't it? We're all hate-criminals for wanting the swamp drained.

  4. Brilliant analogy, Don! I will pass this one on. Thank you, thank you for this and all you do!!

  5. This all goes back to Burke and the observation that seeing the world through the lens of abstraction meant governing one's life and one's government in ways distorted by something for which a word had not yet been invented: ideology.

    Trump is a red pill because, having dealt with a world of concrete and steel his whole life, the very notion of ideology is something which probably eludes him entirely. It is so foreign to his make-up that he most likely sees those infected with it as alien.

    It is also why his detractors see him the same way. To them he may as well come from a foreign planet.

    But this is no situation of equivalence in perspective. His feet are on the ground. Their heads are in the clouds, still hooked up to the matrix, sloshing down blue pills with kool-aid more toxic than any from Jonestown.

  6. Cynics like Pontius Pilate have always asked, "What is truth?" But they ask it to avoid the answer, not to get an answer. Too many of our politicians are afraid of the truth because it makes them look bad. Trump is not; you don't get to be a billionaire by ignoring the facts on the ground. You might eventually lose that money by ignoring them. Anyone who really cares about real people (and not abstractions like race or creed or whatever) prefers reality to fantasy.

  7. So, that's why the half-red/half-blue pills the VA gave me messed with me so bad! (Sound of pill bottle going into the trash can.)

    Maybe we need to consider way to put the red pill into our water supply, like fluorine. - Elric

    1. Elric, the little blue pill they gave you was for something else entirely.

    2. They've never given me a little blue pill. Unless my daughter is sneaking something into my coffee in the morning. If she is, it ain't workin'. - Elric

  8. As I remember it, the CIA overthrew the Diem regime in Vietnam because it was corrupt or that was the excuse. My President has shown how corrupt our own government has become.

  11. Never saw The Matrix, but the analogy is excellent.

  12. Every word, every meaning has been scrutinised in that document. It's use of language always astounds me. It's rightly so one of the most important documents ever written. So, red pill/blue pill. The analogy stands but that is only just the beginning ! Why do so many cling to the "blue pill" ? The answer lies in Depth and Jungian Psychology. The Victim Class and early childhood trauma that throws up archetypal subconscious elements that resist change for the better as well as the truth (see The Inner World of Trauma by Donald Kalsched). The Matrix Analogy is very apt but its actually not as profound as the ancient descriptions of these kind of problems that Freud/Jung/Velikovsky started discovering around 100 years ago. Positive Politics is good but why not bring the big guns of Psychology into the act as well ?

    1. President Trump seems to have a pretty good handle on things. Scott Adams, a trained hypnotist, calls him a Master Persuader. His predictions of President Trump's actions to date have been fairly accurate. - Elric

    2. You forgot Freud who believed everything was result of a sexual conflict within one’s brain.

    3. Freud was also a cocaine addict. Some of his ideas make sense, but a lot of them are, shall we say, questionable. - Elric

  15. Since moral issues supposedly matter, what is the moral position in paying hush money to your porn star mistress? If you sign your documents with an alias of David Dennison, does the porn star get to keep the money? This wouldn't have been supposedly settled in arbitration without a prior agreement. How do you suppose that came about? What would Jesus do?
