Progressives have found a rallying cry in their opposition to Donald Trump’s presidency. Whether in the New York Times, on CNN, or MSNBC, they are insisting that Trump is “not normal.” Suddenly progressives, of all people, are deeply concerned about our culture’s long-held norms and traditions.
These are the same people who over the past few years have insisted that five-year-old boys becoming five-year-old girls is normal. They tell us that a guaranteed basic income and running for president as a Socialist is normal. They say allowing 40-year-old men in bathrooms and showers with 8-year-old girls is normal. Forcing Catholic hospitals to offer birth control, undocumented immigrants voting in our elections, and abolishing the police and all those are normal, normal, and normal.
