    ROD LIDDLE: I want to see President Trump – if only because of who he’d annoy. It would be Trumpageddon for all the worst people in Britain, and the prospect is rather attractive.

    Trump_SE1.jpg

    Excerpts:

    If you recall, 8 May last year was awash with the bitter tears of lefties who couldn’t believe the British people had been so stupid as to elect a Conservative government. There were the usual hilarious temper tantrums and hissy fits. Typical of these was an idiotic college lecturer called Rebecca Roache who loftily announced that she had gone through all of her Facebook contacts and ‘unfriended’ any who might be Conservatives for their ‘abhorrent views’. But there were thousands of others, besides Becca, stamping their little feet and daubing ‘Tory scum’ on war memorials. One columnist said she kept breaking down and weeping, unable to believe how thick or vile the electorate must be. Oh, how we laughed. If Trump wins, it will be like that, times ten. It will be Trumpageddon for all the worst people in the country.

    The BBC, for example, will not be happy. There will be a markedly different mood within the corporation this election night to the one we witnessed in 2008, when the studios were awash with ejaculate and we viewers were all forced to endure a relentlessly celebratory Obamathon, utterly devoid of anything even approaching impartiality: how wonderful of the Americans to elect him and what a marvellous, marvellous little black man he is! They will be instead grim-faced with incomprehension and antipathy.
    -----------
    Think how grossly offended will be those half a million quasi-Stalinist Brits who signed a petition demanding that Donald Trump be banned for ever from visiting this country. And the fatuous MPs who took the suggestion so seriously that they debated the issue themselves. We cannot possibly allow into our country people who disagree with our views, even if it is a view (regarding Muslim immigration) with which the majority of the population would concur.
    -----------
    So, all those people to enrage. The people who do not believe that it is even remotely legitimate to have a view which differs from their own. The more I think of it, the more attractive a Trump win becomes. I may write some letters to the voters of New Hampshire.

    One of the huge reasons those on the left would be so upset is it would motivate the silent majority in the UK who is also sick of political correctness and unfettered Muslim immigration to rise up and throw out the leftists. What Merkel has done to Germany and what has happened in Scandanavia would be powerful reminders.

    Rod Liddle is not unlike Trump, in that he'll say pretty much anything to garner a bit of controversial self-publicity. I think he fancies himself as a sort of British P. J. O'Rourke (albeit a pudgy, less erudite and less funny one).

    Well done though, Socal. At last you've found a Brit you can agree with.

    There are many others from what I read, including a couple on RJ.

    Is this opinion becoming common in the UK? Is that part of the fear of Trump, and how the same movement might spread. Are lefties afraid?

    Politically correct universities 'are killing free speech'

    British universities have become too politically correct and are stifling free speech by banning anything that causes the least offence to anyone, academics argue

    southbeach1500 saidAnd the RJ radical libs here will go berserk - well, even MORE berserk than usual - should Trump become President.

    They have started talking about leaving the country. Do you think they know the right-wing "reeducation" squads will be looking for them? Presumably the accommodations won't be as lavish as Gitmo. I heard the insane ones like Mr. Elephant and that fetish guy will be housed in "The Hole".

    I can see some good coming out of a Trump win - it might stop you two blathering like a pair of old housewives.
