"The Huffington Statement"

(Excerpt from the upcoming ebook, Trump and the Populist Revolt. This is taken from the "Anti-Trump" section which looks at the enemies of the Donald Trump candidacy.)

All establishment media conservative and liberal have become hysterical over the rise of Trump. One of the most hysterical has to be the Huffington Post website. They put a disclaimer about Donald Trump after every Trump article they post-- as if he's a comic book supervillain:

"Donald Trump is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther. . . ."

That Huffington puts this after every Donald Trump article-- they run articles about him several times a week-- makes them like an ancient Roman Senator who ended his every speech with the phrase, "Carthage must be destroyed!"

It's a robotic thing to do-- a sign of people who've stopped thinking. The statement's an ideological shortcut which affirms their rigid view of reality. It allows them not to think. More than this, it tells their readers not to think.

They may as well be honest and give the shortened version:

"Trump must be destroyed!"
