Are Liberals Helping Trump?

From a NY Times opinion column:
Are Liberals Helping Trump? ...

Liberals may feel energized by a surge in political activism, and a unified stance against a president they see as irresponsible and even dangerous. But that momentum is provoking an equal and opposite reaction on the right. In recent interviews, conservative voters said they felt assaulted by what they said was a kind of moral Bolshevism — the belief that the liberal vision for the country was the only right one. Disagreeing meant being publicly shamed.

Protests and righteous indignation on social media and in Hollywood may seem to liberals to be about policy and persuasion. But moderate conservatives say they are having the opposite effect, chipping away at their middle ground and pushing them closer to Mr. Trump.

“The name calling from the left is crazy,” said Bryce Youngquist, 34, who works in sales for a tech start-up in Mountain View, Calif., a liberal enclave where admitting you voted for Mr. Trump is a little like saying in the 1950s that you were gay. ...

“The Democratic Party has changed so much that I don’t even recognize it anymore,” she said. “These people are destroying our democracy. They are scarier to me than these Islamic terrorists. I feel absolutely disgusted with them and their antics. It strengthens people’s resolve in wanting to support President Trump. It really does.”
There has been a political re-alignment. The crazy left (aka the Ctrl-Left) is on one side, and Trump is on the other.

The NY Times prints lies about Trump every day.

Pat Buchanan explains some of Trump's enemies:
But the deep state is after larger game than General Flynn. It is out to bring down President Trump and abort any move to effect the sort of rapprochement with Russia that Ronald Reagan achieved.

For the deep state is deeply committed to Cold War II.

Hence, suddenly, we read reports of a Russian spy ship off the Connecticut, Delaware and Virginia coasts, of Russian jets buzzing a U.S. warship in the Black Sea, and Russian violations of Reagan’s INF treaty outlawing intermediate-range missiles in Europe.

Purpose: Stampede the White House into abandoning any idea of a detente with Russia. And it appears to be working. At a White House briefing Tuesday, Sean Spicer said, “President Trump has made it very clear that he expects the Russian government to … return Crimea.”

Is the White House serious?

Putin could no more survive returning Crimea to Ukraine than Bibi Netanyahu could survive giving East Jerusalem back to Jordan.
From another opinion column:
A ton of folks are coming to Kjellberg’s aid after this whole thing, saying that The Journal has blown the whole thing out of proportion. Do you buy that?

Farhad: Well, if by “blown out of proportion” he means they accurately reported that he’s repeatedly invoked Nazi imagery and recently paid some folks to hold up a sign saying “Death to All Jews,” then I guess that’s right!
As I understand it, PewDiePie was paying ppl $5 to make distasteful statements, to see how far they would go. The WSJ is more Fake News. Disney is also pretty disgusting for going along with this.

Yesterday's NY Times editorial argued:
Where could the demonizing and dehumanizing of the foreign born lead but to a whiter America? You have heard the lies ...

Think of the message sent if the “day without immigrants,” in which foreign-born workers stayed home, became a week or a month.
I guess it is saying that a "whiter America" would be the message, and the non-white interests that control the NY Times are against that. They advocate anti-white policies at every opportunity.

Of course these white-haters call Trump and his followers a racist at every opportunity. After his press conference last week, they were all calling him racist for how he offered to meet with the Congressional Black Caucus. Or maybe it was for not recognizing the initials "CBC" in a black reporters question. Or maybe it was for thinking if someone is trying to get him to have a particular kind of meeting, then that someone might want to facilitate the meeting. I am not sure, as they mainly just use name-calling and do not explain themselves.
