I love the comment by the bloke whose tweet is top of the list, about people denigrating Hillary’s voters. Isn’t that exactly what Hillary and her supporters did to the “deplorables” who voted for Trump.
The cult element of the Clinton campaign was an echo of the personality cult built around Barack Obama during his 2008 campaign and maintained throughout his presidency. The assumption by followers of these cults that no reasonable person could possibly disagree with them is no different to the self righteousness shown by Hitler’s loyal followers, the Bolshevik revolutionaries in Russia, the Muslim fanatics if ISIS and al Qaeda or the Dominican monks who persecuted heresy for the Holy Inquisition.
It is a very unhealthy trend and one that does not bode well for the future of liberal democracy.

Opted for comfortable retirement before I was fifty due to health problems and burn out. Now spend my time writing and goofing around. Home: northern England..
