Mad As HellThe 2016 Presidential Election was something right out of the 1976 Academy Award winning movie Network, where television news anchor Howard Beale, who learns he is going to be sacked because of falling ratings says, “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!”
This is pertinent for two reasons: 1) The American people effectively “sacked” Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, much for the same falling ratings; and 2) The American people are as mad as hell and not going to take it any more.
Why are Americans mad? The first obvious answer is that this election was a voter insurrection against the media and Democrat Party fixation on political correctness, and having identity politics used like a weapon.
Americans are fatigued with being told we can’t give voice to the obvious without outing ourselves as “racist, bigoted, ignorant, homophobic members of the KKK.” Donald Trump tapped into this fatigue, as well as the ridiculousness.
