Gelzinis: Barney Frank; Donald Trump’s right... on one pointWhat this actually explains, and explains very well, is that the Left just doesn't care about anybody but themselves. Frank and the Leftists couldn't care less about doing anything substantive, until it affects them, personally. That is a feature of the Class Warrior, who thinks of humans only in terms of their class membership. As class members they are accorded certain features, and those features define them completely as far as Class Warriors are concerned. I, as an example, am a flyover/clinger. That makes me inconsequential in the rankings of assigned class membership. Thus, my death, and the deaths of those like me, can be "absorbed".
"Trump delivered one of the reddest of his red-meat speeches yesterday, and [Barney] Frank was in meetings in Washington and did not see a rant that was anchored around Sunday morning’s massacre in Orlando, Fla. So, I quoted the following passage:“But the Muslims have to work with us. They know what’s going on. They have to cooperate with law enforcement and turn in the people they know are bad.“Well,” Barney sighed,
“They know that he (Mateen) was bad. They knew the people in San Bernardino were bad, but you know what … they didn’t turn them in.”“I gotta say Trump’s argument on this particular issue is legitimate. There is a small tragic sliver that is consumed with hate that has to be focused on with greater intensity. And enlisting other Muslims to help in that effort, whether it’s with law enforcement that can go undercover, is something that has to be looked at seriously.”For Barney Frank, the slaughter inside Pulse nightclub was personal.
“It could have been me,” said the former 16-term congressman, who stepped out of the closet more than three decades ago to earn the respect of colleagues on both sides of the aisle.
Okay, so maybe he’s not ready to join Trump’s Rainbow Coalition, but the fact that Trump is saying things that even Barney Frank agrees with, but that nobody “responsible” will say explains why Trump is doing so well."
