I think I stumbled across one of the main reasons for the intense Trump hatred among the elitists, all the way from the beginning.
Nolte: We Now Know Truckers and Stock Boys Are Vital, Hollywood Is Not
Nolte then gives these two example of our Hollywood royalty.
And Madonna below, purposely made up ugly (at least it looks like that), and butchering fried fish, of all the goddam things to sing about.
I'm gonna push the fair use thing and give the rest of the article.
So what does this have to do with Trump Derangement Syndrome?
I'm reminded of an observation Nathaniel Branden used to say about everybody knowing the truth about themselves when they wake up alone at two o'clock in the morning. They don't use a mask at that time, not even to fool themselves.
The truth is, underneath, everybody knows what John Nolte just wrote. They know it deep in their gut. Even Hollywood royalty. Dreams are for the future, but without the present, dreams are nothing. There can be no future without the present.
But look at how pathetic our dream-keepers are without their dream-enhancing trappings. Their present is worse than many of our next-door neighbors singing in the shower. They are not striving to make their dreams real. They are wallowing in mediocrity.
Now think of this. Who sold the biggest dream of them all out in Hollywood and among the elites? Donald Trump did. He said go for it.
And go for it, people did. They went for keeping that dream alive in their hearts. They read his books and made bestsellers out of them. The consumed the image of a big money show-off he injected into the mainstream. They put his TV show at No. 1 for years.
And did Donald Trump become a dream-keeper just like everyone else?
He took his own advice and went for it out in reality.
He made his dream come true.
And he did not need them to do it.
Something none of them have the capacity to pull off.
Oh, they have the reputation of being able to make dreams come true. But it's unearned. When push comes to shove, they know they are peddling a dream future without having earned a real present where that makes any kind of sense. They don't strive in their personal lives to become competent and better at real things. One can build a dream by striving for it by living on the pathway to it.
Instead, they strive to be pampered and shielded from real things. I'm not talking about words or stories. I'm talking about reality. Reality-wise, these people are spiritual impostors. They crave to be worshiped for a metaphysical standing they have not earned and do not deserve. They can present a good story, but their reality sucks.
Well, President Trump emerged from enormous personal striving and became President of the United States against all odds--while keeping the dream all along. He didn't sell out his dream, but instead, transmuted into reality on a foundation of merit. And by extension, he made these impostors look at themselves in the daylight, not just at two o'clock in the morning when they are by themselves. He made them realize--in full awareness--how insignificant they really are.
They never forgave him for it.
This applies to all elitists who hate Trump, too. Especially conservative never-Trumpers who made their careers out of selling a conservative dream but not earning a conservative present of productivity and competence in dealing with reality. They could never do what President Trump did and it galls them to no end anyone could. They know what that makes them look like--to everyone and to themselves.
And now, for some goddam psychological reason I can't grok right now, these Hollyweird idiots are hell-bent on showing their public just how ugly, untalented, and insignificant they really are when they have to live the life their fans do. I can grok this much, though. They have a subconscious drive to put their hands on reality when all they've ever known is a dream.
But they're not going for the gold out there in reality. They're going for the shit. That's what they want their fans to see them right now: themselves as shit. And they want this right at the time when their fans are under attack by reality.
They will never forgive President Trump for making them do this, even though he didn't.
Their hatred of him is projected hatred of themselves.
Why do they hate themselves? Because they can't measure up and Trump can?
No. Not at root.
It's because they don't want to measure up and they know how wrong that is as a human being--at least they know it at two o'clock in the morning.
