Know Your Enemy

"Liberalism used to be about freedom, but now it's about a kind of warped moral authority that is actually part of the moral superiority movement."

Provocative stuff (as ever) from Bret Easton Ellis, who is no fan of Donald Trump but clearly also no fan of the Left's reaction to him either. In a recent podcast, he mocks liberals for their "childish meltdowns" and "psychosis" in the wake of the election, while (naturally) pointing out his own prescient indictment of Trump in American Psycho. Some liberal responses were indeed cringeworthy, but given how things have unfolded so far, it's hard to see that the hysteria was unjustified. It would be interesting to know how he feels liberals should have reacted.
