For John, BLUF: Trump didn't just win, he rejected the values of the Progressives. Nothing to see here; just move along.
This is from a site known as American Greatness, by Dr Mark Bauerlein, a Senior Editor at First Things and Professor of English at Emory University,
Here is an excerpt that sums up the thesis:
Which brings us back to Donald Trump. Why do people hate him so? Because he won’t accept this appointed condition. He has no white guilt. He doesn’t feel any male guilt, either, or American guilt or Christian guilt. He talks about the United States with uncritical approval—’America First’—and that’s a thought crime in the eyes of liberals.Here is how Law Professor Glenn Harlan Reynolds sums it up:
He rejects their assumed position of moral and intellectual supremacy. Which is both fair, and painful, because that position has always been a lie.Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
