Trump Objectivists (?) in Denial
Yaron Brook is coming in for a fair bit of abuse from certain people who one assumes are Objectivists over his position on Trump who he asserts with all the evidence on his side it must be said, is a leftist on many issues not least economic.He has been shouted down at quite a few speaking venues on both sides of the Atlantic recently. But if he cannot be trusted on this issue how about those on the left who appear to see things the same way. Far Leftist George Galloway no less said on his RT programme Sputnik at the weekend that on economic issues Trump 'position is socialist. Our local newspaper carries a column by an avowed far leftist and he asserts that there is not a cigarette paper's difference between Trump and Sanders on economic policy except that according to him Trump does not mean it, it is just rhetoric whereas had Sanders stood against Trump he would have won because unlike Donald he would actually put such protectionist policies into action. From the horses's mouth Trump is a Leftist statist. Still the objectivists in question appear to have checked out their objectivity some time ago and are impervious to reason and have gone over to the dark side where emotions rule and the realm of feelings reigns supreme.
