The ANTI-Trump Factor

Could Trump Derangement Syndrome be the final nail in the coffin of the West?

Trump rallies turn out tens of thousands. Biden speeches turn out dozens.

So, what's going on? We've asked the question before in this column — How is Biden even close at this point with the lowest rated presidency on record?

Even Jimmy Carter could look at Biden and tell him his numbers are in the toilet.

There is no doubt that Trump supporters are near fanatical in their support for the 45th President of the United States, and they are very vocal about it — in person and on social media.

However, could it be the case that on the other side — coiled up like a snake under the table waiting to strike — is a huge contingent, even more than Trumpies suspect — with a hatred of Trump so intense, that they will turn out to accomplish nothing more than make sure he doesn't win; even at the risk of returning America-destroying Biden to the White House; their own 401Ks be damned?

Trump supporters seem to have correctly identified what they term, TDS — Trump Derangement Syndrome — a reaction to Trump (even the mention of his name) where the person suffering from it appears to lose all sense of logic and reason.

Even within official Republican circles, we hear constantly about the "Never-Trumpers."

Were we ever entertained by the "Never-Obamas" or the "Never-Hillarys"? There's a clue right there as to what's going on — the fact that this intense intraparty hatred the "Never-Trump" crowd holds for Trump, never seems to emerge on the Left. And they certainly don't go on political programs granting interviews denouncing them.

There're been tons of ink spilled on the topic of Trump supporters — but, what about his detractors — the Trump-Haters? They certainly exist and seem to be near legion.

Whereas Trump supporters get analyzed and psychoanalyzed and examined and opined over, ad nauseum — almost every conclusion being negative — Trump-haters are never put under the microscope. Why should they escape the same level of scrutiny?

Can it be that it's too difficult to study a person or a trend from the perspective of negativity? Trumpies are "FOR Trump", but the hate Trump crowd is "for NOT Trump." That's pretty slim pickins' when it comes to classification of a group. ("Please identify yourself by what you DON'T like.")

The truth is there are many excuses the hater crowd has for wanting to see him strung up, behind bars, erased from history — but no one single reason seems to dominate their narrative. And the narrative is important — because they can't come out with the real reason.

As a result — there is no anti-MAGA cause. You can't call the local anti-MAGA headquarters and speak to the manager. The Left is massively splintered — either left, far left, alt-left, way left, way far left or way way far left.

Yet with all this division, they are able to gloss over it and intensely unite against Trump — why?

Middle-of-the-road types insist they were put off by his "mean tweets," saying things directly, being aggressive and so forth. But those assessments always smacked of being somewhat disingenuous. Giant political movements don't form around negative reactions to someone's personality. You simply don't vote for the guy, and then get on with your life.

But with Trump, there is a lasting, almost omni-present, hate directed toward him from this crowd; and it just might be at their peril that Team Trump doesn't face it head on.

Yes — many people don't like the man himself. Whatever you want to label him — immoral, brash, big-mouthed, mean, etc.

But, Bill Clinton was getting sexual gratification in the Oval Office from an INTERN — something corporate America would have expelled him for on the spot — yet he is still adored by Democrats.

When it comes to the competition for being mean, Joe Biden would give Trump a good run for his money – and likely win. He screamed at Americans through the entire State of the Union address. He yelled at reporters at an impromptu press conference after the Robert Hur DOJ report was released. He screamed at a middle-class voter, "I don't work for you!"

Ol' Joe ain't some sweet grandpa — yet no one seems to care about his mean, grouchy old man demeanor. He gets a pass on this, like Clinton gets a pass on oral sex in the Oval Office.

Communist-Democrats live in a world of double-standards, and not just when they are running corrupt prosecutions and investigations.

Underneath it all — they see that Trump is the standard-bearer (and not even necessarily the best one) for all that Western Civilization has brought to the world — and for the Communists, that is intolerable. Why?

Because Western Civilization is bound up tightly and inseparably from Christianity, and specifically, Catholicism.

The Catholic Church — with its theological view of man and his God-given dignity, converting of the barbarians, the preserving of Greco-Roman philosophy, transcribing of sacred scripture, building of the monasteries, building of hospitals, erecting of cathedrals, instituting of political order — the Church built, really created, Western Civilization — and Her fingerprints are all over it.

It's not that Communists hate Western Civilization. They actually live on its fumes and enjoy much of its fruit. No. It's that they hate the Church which built it, who their "father," the Devil, understands is Christ present on earth. ("I will be with you all days, even unto the consummation of the world.")

Weak-minded people, political milquetoast types, follow individuals — are all wrapped up in personalities (one way or the other.) Strong men devote themselves to causes, and when they sense a leader who can advance their cause, they join ranks. Regardless of the man — they understand the mission.

Well, over on the Left, they operate the same way. They sense mission; they smell it on the wind and swarm toward it. They care nothing about the man, the leader, the kingpin or his evil or sins or peccadillos. It matters nothing to them about him (see Obama) — regardless of his shortcomings. They care about only one thing — can he help deconstruct Catholic/Christian morality so as to advance their hatred of the Church/Christ.

They would throw themselves off buildings if they thought it would bring down the moral order. But they would delight even more in throwing you off a building. Short of that, they will back a leader or a party or a movement that will harass you, bully you, intimidate you, censor you, cancel you, accuse you, arrest you, charge you, imprison you — and when the times comes — execute you!

Trump is a stand-in, whether he likes it or not, whether he knows it or not, for Western Civilization and Catholic order — meaning Divine order – and anyone who approaches that standing will enrage demons.

The demonic has built a fortress here on earth and its gates are well-guarded. Daily it launches attacks against the sons of men, tearing their souls apart, capitalizing on their emotional pain, their hurts, their dispositions and appetites for sin and self-medication.

As they peer over the wall, they see the most unlikely of men approaching their gates. He himself doesn't seem to understand the full reality surrounding him — but they do.

They know the motivations of the man and those 74 million behind him, however imperfect they might be or inarticulately they might be expressed.

This is what the anti-Trump crowd is all about. Nothing less.

The reason the Trump haters are not held to any meaningful level of scrutiny, especially from a psychological perspective, was plainly obvious to L. Ron Hubbard. Suppressive persons are backed by the suppressive institution of psychiatry, with its long history of state sponsored terrorism, raiding people's homes, kidnapping them, dragging them before fake courts on charges of mental illness, forced drug injections, and their other heinous crimes. It's called psychiatric rape, and it's been going on in America, South Africa, Russia, and other countries where being a Christian is not tolerated by the atheists who are in power. Psychiatry is a tool of statecraft, always has been, from fascist Germany to present day America, Christians are considered de facto menta…


Actually TDS is when people have such an emotional attachment to Trump, that they allow him to LIE to them incessantly and Still love him. Kind of like an abused spouse who refuses to leave and stop the abuse.

Here are just a few of the examples of Trump's immorality and LIES that MAGA are fine with.

Very good points. Like those with a compulsive addiction, who cannot see the harm in what they are doing to themselves. So heavily vested into the idea rather than the results. A person who believes a liar or allows an abuser to continue is living under a compulsion, sometimes an addictive compulsion, and until they hit bottom, there isn't much we can do for such a person. I know. I was once a stock market fan, and I threw half of my earnings into companies which all went bankrupt or insolvent and the crooks which lived off this system loved me until I ran out of money.
