1) The supposedly non-partisan mainstream media's pre-election shameless promotion of the Clinton campaign (to the disappointment of Bernie supporters and to the annoyance of Trump supporters).
2) The post-election whining and scurrying for a story by the same mainstreamers.
It's safe to say, too, that Catholics, upon hearing about the Democratic Party's actual thoughts about Catholics and the Church, exercised a little fraternal correction against our Democratic brethren in the form of crossing the floor to vote Republican. It's about freakin' time people woke up and smelled the poison in the chalice! That Catholics could have voted for a party that expressly hates the Catholic Faith and which has used dupes like Biden, Pelosi, Kerry, Sebelius and most recently Kaine to sow confusion among the faithful is shocking, to say the least.
If people enjoy placing all their hopes and dreams in a politician to the point of sacrificing reason on the altar of utopian ideology, they have been born a century-or-so too late. Deo gratias, the Soviet Union is gone. Socialism has been tried and, everywhere it has been tried, hundreds of thousands into the tens of millions have died. Socialism cannot shed its violent heart; in theory and practice, it cannot tolerate any dissent.
In the West, socialism is killing souls. Those who belong to parties which court the grim reaper will answer to the victims of their diabolical behaviour and for their complicity in the destruction of Western societies and institutions.
