Off-Site Post: ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome’

Most are familiar with at least some of the scenes associated with leftist forms of Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS):

People across the country gathered Wednesday night to scream into the sky to mark the anniversary of Donald Trump's victory in the 2016 presidential election.

Thousands were expected to attend events planned in New York City, Philadelphia, Dallas and other major cities. The idea was self-explanatory, as people came to public gathering places, looked to the sky and let out a yell. 

 . . .

Teddy bears, Play-Doh and coloring books are staples of nursery schools, but now they are showing up on college campuses to help distraught students cope with the election of a president they don’t like.

Around the nation, students are turning to the tools of toddlers as a bizarre form of therapy in the wake of Donald Trump's election last week. Colleges and universities are encouraging students to cry, cuddle with puppies and sip hot chocolate to soothe their fragile psyches, an approach some critics say would be funny if it weren't so alarming.

“This is an extreme reaction from millennials who are being forced to come to terms with the fact that we have a president that they don’t like –this is what losing feels like,” Kristin Tate, the 24-year-old author of "Government Gone Wild," told “We are grooming our students to be sensitive crybabies when we need to be showing students how to deal with world situations and how to be adults –there are no ‘safe spaces’ in the real world.”

 . . .

But there is also a rightist form of TDS, which overly exalts Pres Trump for his actions.  For example:

Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro, citing the decision by President Trump to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and establish the U.S. Embassy there, is comparing the president to the biblical King Cyrus.

Cyrus, a Persian king, founded the Achaemenid Empire, conquered Babylon and made history by allowing the Jews to return to Jerusalem to rebuild their Temple.

The prophet Isaiah wrote of him as an “anointed one.”

Pirro, on her weekend show, said, “Donald Trump recognized history, he like King Cyrus before him, fulfilled the biblical prophecy of the God worshiped by Jews, Christians and, yes, Muslims, that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish state and that the Jewish people finally deserve a righteous, free and sovereign Israel.”

A celebration marking the opening of the embassy in Jerusalem was held Monday.

Newsweek reported Pirro was in Jerusalem for the events.

“The Fox News host praised Trump for the move, claiming it proves he is more trustworthy than past presidents, including Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton. All three presidents had signed waivers to delay the embassy move,” the report said.

“Trump has assured the world that his word is worth more than any former U.S. president,” Pirro said. “His word is more than any treaty and stronger than any U.N. resolution.”

 . . .

Trump’s accomplishments have prompted an online Thank Trump Card Campaign giving Americans a way to thank the president for his record of achievement during his first year in office.

 . . .

WND Founder Joseph Farah raised the idea of Trump’s likeness to King Cyrus last year.

It was when Michael Freund, an American-Israeli political activist, pleaded with Trump to follow in the footsteps of Cyrus the Great by fulfilling his campaign promise to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

 . . .

 . . .

Why do so many people act irrationally when it comes to Donald Trump?  It would seem that this is because the project of the artificial American nation, a project begun in earnest with the brutal conquest of the pre-Modern South and the even more pre-Modern Native American West in the 1860s and the years following by the Yankee North, is beginning to collapse.  Donald Trump’s presidency is the death rattle in the lungs of Americanism, and the peoples of the States are naturally reacting to this very strongly, though most of them seem unaware of what is behind these strong passions of theirs.

 . . .


Holy Ælfred the Great, King of England, South Patron, pray for us sinners at the Souð, unworthy though we are!

Anathema to the Union!
