"Ready… set…"

Last night on TV Glenn recapped everything happening around the globe and most of it isn’t good. Glenn says the perfect storm that’s been brewing for years may finally be coming ashore. Look at all of the unrest and ugly hatreds rising in Europe and elsewhere right now - and this before a real economic depression hits. What happens when the economy takes a deep dive? It’s go time.

Below is a transcript of this segment

I’ve told you for the last year that I kept hearing in my prayers that I would hear every time I’d pick up the newspaper and so it begins. And so it begins…that was last year. This year I am getting a different call. In fact, I’m starting to understand and so it begins a little bit more. This, I think, is the beginning of all of the things. These are the beginnings of sorrows.

These are the labor pangs, if you will, of the things yet to come, and they have begun. The water has broken. But today I was talking in a meeting, and I really think that a better way to explain this is you’re at a starting line, and when you’re at a starting line, they always say three things. What are they? Everybody knows—ready, set, go. Why do they say that, instead of just go? Because you’re not ready. Ready, set, go.

Anybody who is standing at the starting line…you’re in the Olympics, and you want to win. If they say ready, set, and you’re just standing around, and then they say go, you’re going to lose. I believe last year when I told you and so it begins, that was ready. I believe what happened in France was set, and we’re about to hear go.

I don’t know what’s coming our way, but it is trouble, and so there are things that we have to discuss and things that we have to do, because I really, truly believe, and I’ve always said this, I believe for some strange reason, and maybe I’m completely wrong, maybe I’m nuts, but I really truly believe that this audience will help pull the world away from the brink of insanity, and insanity is coming in spades as you will see tonight.

16263422506_13949f8828_k

There are four things that I believe that are true about all of us, and it doesn’t matter who you are. It doesn’t matter if you’re rich, you’re poor, you’re black, white. It just doesn’t matter, liberal or conservative. We all want to belong to something bigger than us, and that is our nation. That is our family. That is our job. Who wants to go to work every day, and you’re just time to make the donuts, man?

If you’re making the donuts and you know that people are coming in, and it really enhances people’s day, well, then you’ve got meaning in your job, but we all want to believe that we belong to something bigger than us and better than us.

Two, we all want to be heard. We don’t necessarily all expect to get our own way all the time, but we want someone to listen to us. Three, we all want control of our lives. We know that sometimes our lives will get out of control, but we want that system and that sense that yes, I can affect the outcome of my life, not my neighbors, not anybody else, but my life. And four, we generally all want to live in peace, I think. I know I do.

I know, everybody I know, we’re going to have arguments. We’re going to have strife. We’re not going to get together as family or neighbors all the time, but generally we all just at the end of the day are like look, we’re going to agree to disagree, let’s just move on. Can we just agree to disagree? Yes, if we have something to unite on. So, what is that that unites us?

We used to be a melting pot. I remember my family used to say that to me all the time, America is a melting pot. We’re not a melting pot anymore. Nobody comes here and melts into us. You were supposed to come here and bring what was great, the best part. Leave all the crap behind. Bring the best part and melt in and be an American.

We used to say that America was truth, justice, and the American way, but what is that? Does anybody know? Is it truth? Is it justice? Our culture has gradually disintegrated since the dawn of the progressive era to the point to where it’s in our national interest, violates our principles, and that’s what I want to talk to about, national interest over national principles.

This is the root of our problem in our decision making. We know, for instance, that it is in our national interest to have cheap oil, right? Everybody wants cheap oil. I don’t want to pay a lot for gas. It helps me get to work. It helps us build things. If we have cheap energy, it’s in our national interest, but it is not our national principle to have cheap oil. It’s in our national interest. There is a huge difference, but we no longer talk about our principles anymore.

Because of our principles, we know yes, our interests tell us we want cheap oil, but our principles tell us we don’t have the right to kill people or take over a country and just steal their oil. No war for oil reflects our national principle—principles over interest.

Is it in our national interest now to be in a war in the Middle East? Is it? Why? What core American principle is compelling us now to remain in a war with unclear goals that is sapping the creativity of a nation, killing its own citizens, killing citizens elsewhere, leading to the loss of perhaps an entire generation? I can’t think of one, and here’s why I can’t, because I can tell you it’s in our national interest not to be killed and slaughtered by Islamic jihad people, but we won’t even admit that. We won’t even admit that, and that’s an interest, not a principle.

I’m kind of focused on this because last night I saw American Sniper, and I sat next to Taya Kyle, Chris Kyle’s wife. I watched Lone Survivor sitting next to Marcus Luttrell, and I watched this sitting next to Taya Kyle, and my daughter was with me. And my daughter, God bless her, walked out of the theater together and composed, and the minute we walked out, we got into the back of the theater and we went out by the screen, so we were in the back alley. She took three steps, the door closed, and she turned to me, and she buried her head in my chest, and she just started to cry.

She said, “Dad, what do we do now? We see this now, what do we do?” We know what’s happening. I’ll give you my review of the movie later on in the hour, but we have to solve this. Most of all the problems we face, if not all of them, can be traced back to interests over principles, and the loss of our principles is what’s led to the loss of our culture, the loss of our guiding principles and values.

Try this, are we a Judeo-Christian nation, yes or no? It’s a yes-or-no question. No, “Well, I don’t know…” No, yes or no, are we a Judeo-Christian nation? The answer is very clear. Historically it is very clear. Look at the artwork. Go to the Supreme Court, see what is sitting behind the justice. The bench, what’s sitting there? Moses, Moses. We are clearly a Judeo-Christian nation.

Now, here’s why this matters. If you say no, okay, all right, then what are we basing our laws on? What is the basis of our society? Because out of that Judeo-Christian value comes our charity and our kindness and our basic rules—don’t lie, don’t cheat, don’t steal. And by avoiding this conversation, what happens is we coddle those who disagree with Judeo-Christian values, and that has led to confusion at best, because now what one generation tolerates, the next generation embraces, and that’s what’s coming our way.

We’re not just coddling those who disagree now. We are becoming openly hostile to our own foundation, the principles that set us up. We have tolerated and excused and embraced the ideals that are in direct opposition to our founding principles.

Let me ask you this, if I woke you up in the dead of night, and I said to you, “Hey, which one do you choose, which one do you want, is it God or is it Satan,” which one? I would be surprised…I mean, I could imagine that the atheists, what 2%, 3%, 10%, they would say well, I don’t know, but I don’t want either one of them. I select science. Fine. Everybody else, 99.9993 would say, “Uh…God. Now, can I go back to sleep?” Right?

Satan, we know that’s a bad concept. It’s evil. Schools in Orange County, Florida, have now banned Bibles, going against our principles, Judeo-Christian values, because Satanists have threatened to pass out information pamphlets to the students, so we tolerate it because we’re afraid. There’s not even enough spine left to stand up to Satanists, and we lie to ourselves, and we say well, it’s our principles. We believe in free speech. It’s not our principles of free speech. This is national suicide.

You cannot violate your principles over and over and over again. Now, it’s not too late to turn it around, but I warn you, ready, set, go is coming. Meanwhile, as the willingness to defend Christianity rides off into the sunset, Duke University has planned to start a weekly campus-wide Muslim call-to-prayer from the tower of their church chapel. How many towns in America don’t allow the bells to ring anymore because it’s a nuisance?

But now a Muslim call-to-prayer from the Duke University church chapel. So you know, just before the show, they scrapped that plan. The university said Muslims will instead gather on the quad before heading into the chapel for their weekly prayer service, but without principle, decisions are based on what’s going to make this problem go away or what do I need today? And I warn you, what you need today is not what you’re going to need tomorrow.

If I got everything I ever prayed for, I would have married a very stupid supermodel at about 18. Would that be a celebration of my principles today? No, that would have been my in my 18-year-old interests, not necessarily something that lasts a long time. We do things now to make people happy, to make people shut up, to take the path of least resistance, make problems go away, and we’re doing it without standing up for our own principles, and without principle, no individual, no nation will stand for long. Look what happens to a nation without principles.

There was another homegrown terrorist busted in America, Ohio, yesterday, inspired by ISIS. He wanted to set off a series of bombs and kill a bunch of lawmakers. His plan was to detonate pipe bombs at the U.S. Capitol building and start gunning down anyone who fled the building. Officials were quick to call this, of course, say it with me, a lone wolf attack. Why? Because it’s in their interests.

Public pressure, political correctness, they want to admit that they are in control, that they were not wrong. They want you to believe that things are okay, you’re safe. Many of them don’t actually believe in actual evil, I think. I think there are some people who are so blinded by their hatred of our original principles, and they don’t even know their own that they embrace anything and everything that goes against our founding principles, even if it doesn’t make sense.

Think of this, think of the people who are embracing…the homosexual community that is standing up for the people like ISIS or the people over in the Middle East, Hamas, that will kill homosexuals that fast. That doesn’t make any sense. Why? Because they’re playing what’s in their interest, and their interest in many ways to some is to destroy the principles and the values of America and the West.

They want you now to believe that it’s just one crazy guy and nothing to worry about, but you know that’s not true. Truth, justice, and the American way, the truth is there have been so many lone wolf attacks around the globe, commentators are now calling it a wolf pack, a wolf pack of lone wolves. It’s either a lone wolf for a pack. Which one is it?

Europe tried the nothing-to-see-here approach. They embraced multiculturalism. They allowed their founding principles and their values which weren’t very strong in the first place to be eroded into meaninglessness, and their lack of meaning is going to lead them back to the same Fascism and the same Communism that we saw occupy Europe in the 20th century.

People are now being pushed into extremism. It’s not that hard to figure out. It’s not a justification of it. It’s just stating a fact. Europe has been crumbling. The basic comforts of life are being ripped from underneath them, and it is the natural reaction because everybody wants to belong to something, and I don’t want to belong to the EU. I don’t even know what the EU stands for. What’s the EU’s principle? Money, the European economic system. That’s not strong enough.

People want their homeland. They want their family. They want to believe in something that is rooted in tradition. So, people like Golden Dawn and other extremists are there ready to give you that tradition. They’re ready to give you that answer, and that answer will always be it’s them, it’s the Jew, it’s the immigrant, it’s the person different than you. A German plan now has…there’s a town in Germany that has a bunch of refugees coming in.

Now, in your wildest dreams, if you know who you are as Germans, in your wildest dream and you’ve learned your lesson, when you have a bunch of unwanted refugees, does anybody suggest hey, why don’t we put them up in the old concentration camp? No, but they just did. They’re now heading down the same path.

France—listen to these stats—France has 6 million Muslims. If you believe in the lone wolf and say it’s not the majority of Muslims, which I subscribe to, it’s not the majority of Muslims, but if you say the radical-to-moderate Muslim ratio around the globe is true in France, and I’m going to take the lowest estimate. Some people say it’s as high as 10%. Some people say it’s as high as 40% in the Middle East, but let’s just say some people say it’s 10. I’m going to say it’s 1%, 1%. In France, that leaves you with 60,000 jihadists in that one country alone, 60,000 lone wolves.

Germany has 5 million Muslims. One percent, that’s on the uber low side of radicalized Muslims, that’s 50,000 jihadists in Germany minimum. You get the idea. There are hundreds of thousands of radical jihadists roaming Western Europe alone, and they are here. They’re in Canada. They’re in Australia. They’re everywhere, and we won’t even recognize it. Wake up! It is not in our national interest. It’s a national priority to reconnect with our principles so we can stand against evil.

What we saw in France and other “lone wolf” attacks ignores the problem if we don’t address it, if we don’t say it out loud. It would be like looking at a concentration camp in Buchenwald and say well, that’s just an isolated incident. Buchenwald, okay, sure, you know, that’s run by Wilhelm, Buchenwald, but Auschwitz, Auschwitz, that’s in Poland. I mean, you know, you can’t connect all of these concentration camps together. These are lone wolves, isolated incidents, nothing to see here. Excuse me? They’re united in their hatred, and by letting the problem fester, it only gets worse.

History is repeating itself, and I don’t think Americans…I don’t think most Americans have a problem with immigrants. I really don’t. We all are immigrants, but it has to be somebody who’s coming in here the right way, doing the right thing, melting into us. We welcome those people. That’s the second part of it. You have to be willing to embrace our culture.

I look at that list of those four things—we all want to live in peace. That means I can disagree with you, but I can say you know what, Bob, we’re neighbors, we all want the same basic thing, let’s just agree to disagree. It’s why I decided to visit the border. I have relatives and friends whose parents came from places like Italy or Korea, and their parents speak the native tongue. They also speak English, but they speak the native tongue.

But their kids, none of my friends whose parents are first-generation, none of them speak a lick of the language of the country they came from, not one. They all speak English. Why? Because as my Uncle Leo would say, you’re in America now. You adapt. You came here to live. You become part of the culture, just like you would if you went to live in Germany or Mexico or France or England. But you have to have a culture. What is our culture? Truth, justice, American way.

Who stands for truth? Business? Citibank is willing to put taxpayers on the hook for a bailout because it was in their self interest. What happened to the principle of personal responsibility? That was a principle. Churches, synagogues, are they standing up? Are they willing to take on their own tax exempt status? Are they willing to say you know what, I don’t care, I’ll lose this mega-church. I’ll got out in the street and preach poor if I have to because this is right?

Is anybody standing up for our military after 14 years of war? You know, World War II, World War II, think of all the documentaries and all the films and all the things that happened. That was four years, four, count ’em. We’re in year 14 of this never-ending war. Why? And why am I the guy on the television asking that question? Where are the protesters now? Where is the media with their daily death counts? Remember?

Every single month, 65 soldiers died over in Iraq today, 55 last month, 47 last month. It’s getting worse. Where are they? People, women, men, still dying. I haven’t seen a death count since Bush left office. Why? Why? Because it’s no longer in their interest. It was never about principles. International answer, it was never about principles. It was about politics. CNN and their death count, the New York Times and their death count, it’s not about principles.

The massive debt obligation that we are heaping on an entire generation of children who will be forced to reap what we have sown, who is going to pay for our generation’s recklessness? Hey, I’ve got an idea. You know what, I’ll tell you what, why don’t you and I, let’s go to the Bugatti store today, you and I. We’ll both go buy a Bugatti, and I’m going to take a loan out on my children’s life so my children will pay for it when they turn 30. They’ll pay for the Bugatti now, but we’ll have a Bugatti. It’ll be great—greed and lies.

I’ve been reading the Torah lately. The best thing in the Torah is this so far, the very beginning. I know, I’m running out of time. The best thing about the Torah that I’m reading right now is it says “in the beginning of God’s creating.” It’s not in the beginning God, created the heavens. In the beginning of God’s creating…how fantastic is that? He’s been around for a while.

Now, let me show you, here’s the beginning of His creating. But the word God, if you read it in the King James Version or anything else, we just get one word. Jews really have it going. They’ve got all kinds of words for God. This one is justice, meaning that when God created the heavens and the earth, He created it with justice, which means warning: The events will always bend back towards justice, because the entire system was built for justice.

Race riots, anti-cop violence, extremists that are rising, the Fascists, the anti-Semitism, all of this stuff is happening. It’s going to be wiped out because the whole universe is bending towards justice. It might take a while. We might have to go to hell, but real economic strife hasn’t even come ashore yet. What happens when it really gets ugly? All this stuff that is happening now, it hasn’t even started.

People still have their frickin’ iPhone. What happens to that person who hasn’t been paying attention to the news, all of a sudden their livelihood is taken away? All of a sudden they’re like wait a minute, what do you mean I can’t have my iPhone? Wait a minute, what do you mean? Somebody’s going to be willing to say, “It’s those guys over there.” It’s the immigrants, they took your job. It’s the Jews. It’s the conservatives. It’s the liberals. It’s whoever. It’s the blacks. It’s the whites. It’s the rich. It’s the poor.

You think you’re tough, really? We’re the most coddled generation possibly in the history of the planet. People think they’re so tough. They go over from France to go over to Syria and participate in jihad. They are literally crying themselves to sleep at night because they can no longer use their Wi-Fi on their phone. You’re going to behead people, and you can’t handle losing your iPhone?

We can’t handle a day without bread and milk on the shelves, our 4G being down for ten minutes. We all freak out. What happens when real strife comes, when we lose jobs, when we lose food, when we lose safety, and we can’t depend on our neighbor because we don’t know what they even believe in?

What’s coming? You’ve heard it all before. You’ve seen it all before. You want to know what’s coming? Go watch a video. Go watch some documentary on World War II. It’s coming again. Ready, set…God help us when the starter says go.

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:

Imagine sometime next year, getting called before HUWAC – the House Un-Woke Activities Committee.

"Are you or have you ever been a member of the un-woke?"

Something like that is not as far-fetched as you might think.

Last week, Robert Reich, the former Secretary of Labor during the Clinton administration, now a UC Berkeley professor, tweeted this:

Since the 1970s, there have been dozens of "Truth Commissions" around the world like the kind Robert Reich wants in America. Most of these have been set up in Africa and Latin America. Usually it happens in countries after a civil war, or where there's been a regime change – a dictator is finally overthrown, and a commission is set up to address atrocities that happened under the dictator. Or, as in the commissions in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, atrocities under communism. Or, in the most famous example, South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation commission addressed the decades of apartheid that ravaged that nation.

These commissions usually conclude with an official final report. These commissions and reports have served as a means of governments trying to close a dark chapter of their country's history, or provide emotional catharsis, as a way to generally move on. Sometimes it kind of works for people, most of the time it leaves people clamoring for more justice.

Here's how one professor described truth commissions in an article in The Conversation last year. He wrote:

The goal of a truth commission… is to hold public hearings to establish the scale and impact of a past injustice, typically involving wide-scale human rights abuses, and make it part of the permanent, unassailable public record. Truth commissions also officially recognize victims and perpetrators in an effort to move beyond the painful past… Some have been used cynically as tools for governments to legitimize themselves by pretending they have dealt with painful history when they have only kicked the can down the road.

See, this is the problem with a lot of "Truth" commissions – they are inherently political. Even if you trust your government and give them all the benefit of the doubt in the world that their Truth commission is trying to do the right thing, it is ALWAYS going to be political. Because these truth commissions are never set up by those who have LOST power in government. They're always established by those who have WON power.

The Deputy Executive Director of the International Center for Transitional Justice says one of the main points in these Truth commissions is that "the victims become protagonists."

A Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility.

So, who are the victims in Robert Reich's America? People like him, members of the far-Left who had to endure the atrocities of four years of a president with different political ideas. What an injustice. I mean, the left's suffering during the Trump administration is almost on the level of apartheid or genocide – so we totally need a Truth commission.

There have been lots of calls for the U.S. to have its own Truth and Reconciliation commission, especially around racial injustice.

This past June, Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Lee of California introduced legislation to establish the " United States Commission on Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation."

Ibram X. Kendi – the high priest of anti-racism, and author of Target's current favorite book " Antiracist Baby" – proposes a Constitutional anti-racism amendment. This amendment would:

establish and permanently fund the Department of Anti-racism (DOA) comprised of formally trained experts on racism and no political appointees. The DOA would be responsible for pre-clearing all local, state and federal public policies to ensure they won't yield racial inequity, monitor those policies, investigate private racist policies when racial inequity surfaces, and monitor public officials for expressions of racist ideas. The DOA would be empowered with disciplinary tools to wield over and against policymakers and public officials who do not voluntarily change their racist policy and ideas.

If you think that is far-fetched, you haven't been paying attention to the Left's growing radicalism. In a Joe Biden-Kamala Harris administration, a Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility. And of course, such a DOA would never stop at policing government.

We're in a dangerous, precarious moment in our history. Given the events of 2020, should Democrats gain the White House, the Senate, and the House, how many commissions will be in our future? They will suddenly have plenty of political capital to drag the nation through years of commission hearings.

And the Left's form of justice is never satisfied. You think it will stop at a T&R commission on race? MSNBC's Chris Hayes tweeted this month about the need for a commission to deal with Americans who are skeptical about wearing masks:

Or what about a Truth commission on religion? I mean, look at those reckless churches spreading Covid this year. Or this would be a big one – a T&R commission on climate change deniers.

The Left is highly selective when it comes to truth. That's why they are the very last group you want in charge of anything with "Truth and Reconciliation" in the title.

This is one of the most incredibly frustrating things about the Left in America today. The Left insists there is no such thing as absolute truth, while simultaneously insisting there are certain approved truths that are undeniable.

So, you can't question "Science" – even though that's pretty much what every great scientist in history did.

You can't question racism as the explanation for all of existence – because, well, just because.

You can't question third-party "Fact-checkers" – because the powers that be, mainly Big Tech right now, have decided they are the Truth referees and you have to trust what they say because they're using certified external fact-checkers. They just forgot to tell you that they actually fund these third-party fact-checkers. It's like if McDonald's told you to trust third-party health inspectors that they were paying for.

The Left thinks it has a monopoly on Truth. They're the enlightened ones, because they've had the correct instruction, they're privy to the actual facts. It's psychotic arrogance. If you don't buy what they're selling, even if you're just skeptical of it, it's because you either don't have the facts, you willingly deny the facts, or you're simply incapable of grasping the truth because you're blinded by your raging racism problem. It's most likely the racism problem.

The Left never learns from its own preaching. For the past 60-plus years they've decried the House Un-American Activities Committee for trying to root out communists, getting people canceled, ruining Hollywood careers, etcetera. But a HUAC-type committee is precisely what Robert Reich is describing and many on the Left want. It's not enough for Trump to be voted out of office. Americans who helped put him there must be punished. They don't want reconciliation, they want retribution. Because the Left doesn't simply loathe Donald Trump, the Left loathes YOU.
