Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Alabama versus the Swamp

 

Consider this very instructive side-by-side, two weeks apart:

Alabama—

Washington D.C.—

Oh, and one more point of comparison:

Madison Square Garden in New York City—

Clearly the extremely privileged, very wealthy and powerful, Swamp creatures are upset. They are far more upset, far more politically uniform, far more hateful of the basket of deplorables’ uppity selection of the “wrong” president than are the truly diverse fans of UFC in New York City. How dare they? How dare these “public servants” and all the grifters around the deep state raise their voices and their hands against us? Oh, and they were booing through the salute to veterans, because their hate is so strong they can’t even put on a front of support for the troops if they see the Commander in Chief (Orange Man Bad!). Contrast D.C. behavior to Alabama and LSU fan behavior:

We’re going to need a bigger hose. No, we’re going to need a real gully washer:

    The Alabama v LSU video brought tears to my eyes, watching the different branches of the military honored. Thank you.

    This is going to make a spectacular campaign ad. He should go to some more events in elitist areas like L.A. (Oscars?), Kennedy Center Honors in NYC, etc. and then go to some events in flyover country as well. Juxtapose the rich, leftist, ruling class and the hard working, middle-class, and how they treat our President and feel about how their respective lives have changed over these past 4 years.

    The three reactions are actually instructive of the three areas, in that Alabama’s obviously Red and Washington is obviously deep Blue, but there’s still a divide in the NYC area that accounted for the rise of Trump on the support of the bridge-and-tunnel crowd in the late 1970s, and why New Yorkers were able to at least temporarily break free of the Democrats and elect Giuliani in 1993 (and — even though he’s running as a Democrat now — elect Bloomberg three times, even with his support for the Stop and Frisk and charter school plans de Blasio’s trying to dismantle today). So you have more of a mix of people attending a UFC event than you would a World Series game at National’s Park.

    New York doesn’t revive unless New Yorkers changed course and elected Rudy. That mindset’s still there, even if it’s in the minority right now, because Giuliani and Bloomberg’s two decades in City Hall created the gentrification and reinvestment in the city you see now. Washington also gentrified, but it did so on the backs of taxpayers from the rest of the country, as the size of the federal government, and lobbying of the federal government, continued to grow over the past quarter-century.

    The federal bureaucrats know other than the power of the government, there’s no reason for Washington to exist as it does today, and if they see someone like Trump as a threat to the status quo, they’re going to boo him at the game no matter how many al-Baghddadis were killed the day before, and if they’re high enough up the food chain, they’re going to try to get him out of office without even using an election.

    Half fake news there. The Nationals lost Game 5. This was the first World Series with no home team win.

    Exactly.

    This is actually good campaign strategy. If you can’t go into the territory of those who oppose you, maybe you aren’t ready for the job. I have always believed that all republicans needed to go to the NAACP convention.

    And yes, a very bad reception will have an impact. those who like it will always like it, the mass in the middle, even if they be confirmed democrats, will be embarrassed by the poor manners.
