The question before us is; are liberals stupid, crazy, or evil?
At least, that would seem to be the question based upon the comments of so many liberals in the wake of the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States.
The latest example of the insanity that has struck so many American liberals are the recent comments of Principal Steve Nelson, who recently emailed to the parents of the students who attend the Calhoun School in New York City’s Upper West Side.
The principal at a progressive Manhattan private school told parents in an email last week that the Trump presidency was more troubling than Vietnam, the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., the September 11 attacks and Watergate, The Post has learned…
Nelson emailed a series of anguished ruminations on Donald Trump’s ascent to Calhoun parents, simultaneously calling for non-partisanship while skewering the billionaire’s policies.
Nelson specifically said that he was “more troubled now” than he was watching “soot-covered New Yorkers grimly trudging north on West End Avenue on September 11, 2001.”
I think this is where I should add the sentence that is becoming all-too common in conservative circles these days: “This is why Donald Trump won.” Liberals speaking in this manner — dramatically condemning every word from the Trump White House as if it were evidence of our nation’s collapse, even when those words echo Obama or Clinton — is simply infuriating.
Some parents were offended, with one telling the Post that “It was inappropriate, it was offensive, it was condescending. This is a liberal school. So I guess that’s the approach. But this was too much. To compare this to 9-11 – I think that’s just too much.”
Another parent complained, “I just think this went too far. I understand that this is a progressive school, but at a certain point you have to have some restraint.”
Sadly, as the Post explains, the vast majority of the parents and students that they spoke with cheered on the Principal’s comments and were in complete agreement with them. Think about that. A large group of citizens who live in New York City believe that Donald Trump as President is “more troubling” than the events of 9/11. This is the level of delusion that we face today in America.
We are at a very dangerous crossroads, and it has nothing to do with Donald Trump and everything to do with the collapse of the liberal intellect and the demise of the liberal conscience.
