In more news of the ongoing liberal meltdown after Donald Trump’s unexpected horsewhipping of Hillary Clinton it is being reported that suicide hotlines have been ringing off the hook. Months of fear-mongering by Democrats and their media surrogates over what the “new Hitler” would do if elected instilled a deep seated Trumpophobia in fertile but feeble minds and the snowflakes are freaking out now that their worst fears have become reality.
According to The Hill “Suicide hotlines receive record number of calls after Trump win”:
Phones have been ringing off the hook at suicide hotlines since Donald Trump was named president-elect Tuesday.
According to multiple reports, many of those calling or texting into hotlines are members of the LGBTQ community, minorities and victims of sexual assault who are worried about Trump’s victory.
The Suicide Prevention Lifeline told “The Washington Post” it is seeing calls “unmatched in the hotline’s history,” with a response unlike that in 2008 or 2012.
The Trevor Project, a suicide prevention project for LGBTQ youth has also seen a spike in calls, so much so that it took to posting specifically about the election on its website.
“The Trevor Project, like many others, is surprised by the outcome of this year’s election. We have endured one of the toughest campaigns this country has ever experienced, and we are now facing a new reality,” the post reads. “We are dedicated to protecting LGBTQ and all youth and to proving that every person matters and that the future matters.”
Another LGBTQ hotline, Trans Lifeline, told “BuzzFeed News” and “The Post” it received more than 500 calls following the election. The hotline told BuzzFeed it typically averages 50 calls a day.
Election stress is nothing new. Psychologists have noted upticks in anxiety and stress during and following contentious election cycles. This specific election, many have observed, is no exception and is exceeding average numbers in those seeking mental care and counseling.
While much of the stress is coming from the LGBT community it should be noted that Trump never said one cross word about this particular demographic but Democrats cynically used a plethora of paranoia over justified public unease over allowing perverts and transvestites to invade women’s restrooms to scare the living crap out of them.
Zero Hedge has an interesting take on how badly that liberals have been spooked thanks to the need of the Democrats to foment a climate of fear and loathing.
This past week, as I put together my coverage of Hell Week, I read how some liberals are creating petitions for the west coast to secede from the union. I read about the Canada immigrations web site being overwhelmed after the US election by visitors looking for an escape route from the US. I read about high-school kids who once sat peaceably next to each other in class rising up in class to beat up their classmates who voted for Trump. Prior to the election, I heard my own liberal friends say how they’d have to leave the country if Trump won.
Why? The country isn’t any different the day after Trump won than it was the day before … except that perception has changed dramatically everywhere because of one man who deliberately spoke as far outside of political correctness as he could … and won the highest office in the land by doing so.
Liberals are afraid of their own shadows right now. That’s because they’ve created anti-matter, Mr. Hyde caricatures of the Trumpettes — the average little guys who support Trump. These shadows that liberals have cast by their own self-deceit now surround them, and they believe the grotesquely exaggerated images they have created.
This false belief like any phobia is taking on its own life by creating mass hysteria in the streets of America. By that step, belief becomes reality. While the initial description that liberals painted of Trumpettes is false — they’re all misogynistic, homophobic racists — the hysteria is real, and that causes people to react with violence against whatever they fear. Those violent reactions become very real horrors that are not just painted in the imagination, and they divide the nation deeper, creating fears that are now based on real horrible events that came about due to the original false beliefs. It’s like a panic attack that feeds on itself.
And the more people continue to believe the caricature that liberals created out of Trump supporters and then react in fear to that caricature, the more real-life bad events will create real horrors. It can quickly become a self-fueling social vortex that all began from false fears.
Liberals have for months been retelling each other every day that Trump supporters are all bigots, homophobes, xenophobes and misogynists. They painted Trump supporters with a broad crimson-stained brush as being entirely motivated by hatred. On one level, I’m sure they created this image of the Trumpettes in order to win the election — by making making them look like the KKK fan club, which no decent person would want to belong to.
There is, however, a deadly downside to this kind of demonization: you cannot do it unless you also convince yourself that the stereotype you are creating is true — otherwise you’d live in the knowledge that you are a liar. Nobody wants to live in the knowledge that he or she is a liar, and it is simple to convince yourself that the stereotype you are believing is true because that is who you want to simplify the other side anyway.
While the author somewhat discredits himself by throwing around the pejorative “Trumpettes” in order to describe backers of the president-elect he can be forgiven in consideration of the many excellent points that he makes.
So the nation’s precious snowflakes have been driven to the brink of suicide and mental illness over Hillary’s defeat and the election of the big bad wolf but it’s an indication that many of them were half past batshit to begin with. Not that it should be encouraged to see them actually go through with killing themselves or anything but hey, it would thin out the whackos a bit if many of them felt compelled to do so.
