American journalist and Real Clear Politics contributor Frank Miele in a comprehensive Dec. 2 analysis ripped into Democratic lawmakers for their “virulent accusation” that President Donald Trump’s supporters are “members of a cult”—amid a Democrats led ongoing impeachment inquiry whose goal is to remove a president elected by 63 million Americans.
“Almost everything the left says these days is projection. They accuse you of exactly what they’re doing,” Miele wrote, quoting Fox host Tucker Carlson’s commentary that came after the so-called nonviolent left threatened Rep. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) with death threats outside of his Kentucky residence simply because he wasn’t a supporter of gun control.
“Just stab the [expletive] in the heart, please,” one protester said on Aug. 6 outside of McConnell’s house, when the Louisville Metro Police ironically described the demonstrators to be “protesting peacefully,” according to Fox News.
Miele then slapped Democrats using Steve Hassan’s attack on President Trump, where Hassan had described as a characteristic of “destructive cult leaders’ as, “blaming others and never taking responsibility for his own failures and faults. Shunning and kicking out anyone who raises questions or concerns about his own behavior.”
“To me, this canard sounds like it applies to the entire slate of Democratic presidential candidates,” Miele wrote. “I know they don’t think they are pathological liars, but isn’t that sort of the definition of pathological? They sure do make up a lot of stuff, including an economic system that is the political equivalent of a perpetual motion machine, endlessly buying votes with other people’s money. As for shunning, what do you call what they do to their own non-conforming candidates like Andrew Yang and Tulsi Gabbard.”
Pointing out that it is American voters that determine how President Trump must act, Miele noted that it was the Trump supporters that made him adopt the views he has today.
“Can you think of any instance where President Trump has coerced his supporters into following some element of his platform?” Miele questioned. “Rather, if you are being honest, it is the Trump troops who have had to coerce their leader into adopting the conservative positions he holds today. On everything from abortion to immigration to judges to gun control, it is the base that has demanded Trump earn their support by doing what they want.”
On the other hand, Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) at a heated Oct. 15 debate fumed over President Trump’s Twitter account and called for its suspension.
“He and his account should be taken down,” Harris said, to which Warren replied, “I don’t just want to push Donald Trump off Twitter. I want to push him out of the White House, that’s our job.”
Miele explained how Democrats have seized the opportunity to attack tech companies as means of ousting the president – and jeopardizing America’s democracy.
“Democrat voters have been convinced that the president of the United States is working with Russians to undermine our democracy. Meanwhile, Democrat politicians have been working with Big Tech to … undermine our democracy. That should tell you everything you need to know about who are the cult leaders and who are the cult followers, and neither one is named Donald Trump.”
What frightened Democrats so much is that President Trump is straightforward to his voters, even though the truth isn’t always pleasant, Miele explained.
“Yes, Trump has demonstrated the power to persuade voters to rethink their entire political philosophy, using harsh truth and direct talk to convince Americans to take an honest look at what their ‘dear leaders’ have been telling them for years. That’s why Democrats are so frightened,” Miele continued. “In 2016, Trump peeled away mostly white blue-collar voters from the Democratic Party and thus secured his victory. If the polls are correct, and blacks and Latinos are now trending toward Trump, then it’s game over for the Democrats’ ability to exercise near total control over those communities.”
“Trump isn’t a cult leader; he’s a deprogrammer,” Miele added.
