Don’t kid yourself — one of the social factors behind the horrific likelihood that Donald Trump is going to win the November election…one of these factors was clumsily and unspecifically alluded to last weekend by Richard Dreyfuss, to wit: “We have no knowledge of who the hell we are, and if we don’t get it back soon we’re all gonna die. And you all know exactly what I’m talking about.”

Dreyfuss isn’t Nostradamus, but he’s voicing a popular rage that HE commentariat progressives don’t want to know about. But if The Beast wins, there will be no alternatives open to HE denialists except to gaze into their bathroom mirrors. The rage is out there, and it’s not going away. I can’t quite believe this is happening in this country, but it is and God help us.

It’s the Withered Old Joe thing plus wokester loathing among regular voters…

[Go to 7:10 mark] Robert DeNiro to MAGA Doubting Thomas during this morning’s downtown press conference: “I don’t know how to deal with you, my friend. These guys [Jan. 6th Capitol defenders standing behind him] stood there and fought…for you, for you!” When the naysayer says “they weren’t fighting for me,” DeNiro responds, “They fought for you, buddy…you’re able to stand here now.”
