WSJ Opinion: Why the Left Is Consumed With Hate

“Your editor has never seen such hate as has erupted from the people who oppose Trump, a duly elected president.

NPR (which is partly funded with your tax dollars) is nonstop anti-Trump rage at this point. Almost nothing can be discussed on the network without somehow drawing the issue being discussed back to “Trump”. It’s the same at CNN and NBC and pretty much all of the old media outlets based in New York, Washington, and LA. It has been ugly and it has been irrational. It’s also been good for ratings for these outlets to encourage this hatred. That has to be pointed out.

Trump is many things. He is many things that are bad. But he’s JUST A PRESIDENT. That’s it. He’s a president. Life will go on. He’ll do some bad stuff. He’ll do some good. But the sun will come up again.

Many of the people who carry bile in their hearts for Trump also thought it was great that Obama wanted to “fundamentally transform America.” (What does that even mean?) It seems having failed in that effort however, Obama inclined people are now willing to just blow everything up in a temper tantrum.

If people disliked ALL presidents like the haters hate Trump I would probably consider it a form of societal progress. Unfortunately that is not the case. The anti-Trumpers just want their big government guy (or gal) in there to “make things right.”

It’s not a good look folks, and worse it’s not good for the country.”

The left has used hate to transform President Trump into a symbol of the new racism, not a flawed president but a systemic evil. And he must be opposed as one opposes racism, with a scorched-earth absolutism.
