The Impeachment Show

Lost in the tedium and general lack of interest in the impeachment show put on by the Democrats last week is the general weirdness of our ruling class. What we see in politics and in the media is presented as if it is completely normal. No one ever points out the facts or the contradictions with reality. The presenters and their subjects are all super-serious, as if everything they are saying and doing is completely normal.

The reaction to the very peaceful demonstrations by Trump fans last month is a great example of this weird disconnect. We live in an age where everything is monitored by millions of mobile-phone cameras. As a result, everyone got to see hours of amateur video shot during the subdued protests in Washington back in January. Yet the carrying-on by the politicians and media is disconnected from what we saw online.

If you are a left-wing partisan, all of it confirms your belief that Trump is a magical orange Hitler commanding an invisible army of Hitlers. Of course, for these people, everything confirms this belief. They are insane. For normal people, it was just another day of modern politics. The only thing strange this time is it was well-scrubbed white people instead of degenerates causing the ruckus.

Those who hate Trump were glad he is gone, while the tens of millions who supported Trump got a little boost by seeing their guys raise some hell. Then it was forgotten, until the Cloud People began to carry on like it was the most important event since Pearl Harbor. In fact, Chuck Schumer compared it to Pearl Harbor.
