Whether Trump's victory of the presidential election of the United States will end up in a global catastrophe will remain to be seen. Personally I highly, highly doubt it; all that fear-mongering is just complete bullshit. Anyway, that's not the point of this post.
Trump's victory was important and significant for other reasons.
The leftist media, both in the United States and in the rest of the world, was highly biased and partisan in this election. It reached rather outrageous levels within the United States itself. It was basically a constant barrage against Trump, while largely downplaying and even ignoring any fault that Clinton may have had. The leftist media really, really pushed Clinton to become the president. The smearing campaign against Trump was so global in scale that it might even be unprecedented in the history of American (and even world-wide) press.
Yet, they lost. And that's why this result was so incredibly important.
This loss signals to them that they do not control the narrative anymore. They do not elect presidents anymore. They do not control the people anymore. They do not form the de facto oligarchy that they thought they would. They were, essentially, stripped of their powers. The people rebelled against them.
This loss tells to them that smearing campaigns do not work anymore. That being highly biased and partisan does not work anymore. It tells them that people have become tired of being told who they have to vote for. It tells them that people have become tired of being smeared and insulted because they hold the "wrong" opinions. It tells to them that people have stopped caring if they are called names, like "racists", "sexists" or "misogynists".
The leftist media in the United States, and largely elsewhere in the world, is now throwing a hissy-fit. They are really sore losers. And this is, I must say, a joy to watch. It just fills me with glee and satisfaction. Take that. You are not controlling the narrative anymore. You are not controlling politics anymore. You deserved this. Now cry some more, like the little babies you are.
Regardless of what happens in the next years, this was a really important victory because of that, and I'm really, really glad that it happened. The leftist media really needed a wakeup call. They really needed a smack in the face. And now they are crying, and I'm enjoying every second of it.
