Trump and Titus Andronicus: Its time to play the cook

The most common reaction I hear from people regarding this upcoming election, its fear that when President Trump wins again, that the political left will really become unhinged and that civil war with actual violence, and not just name calling will become much worse than it is currently. Well, I don’t think that way, and am not concerned in the least. What I see in the way of modern leftist thinking is a captured insurgent who is so outraged by their failure that they are lashing out in ways that most people just can’t comprehend. But I’ve seen it before, not so much in real life, but in literature, especially Shakespeare. I don’t talk about it much because its one of my own personal maintenance pursuits, but one of the ways I manage stress and feed my brain when turmoil and rigor are attempting to dominate the horizon with no other options, I read a few pages of Shakespeare, and my favorite play of his from the late 1500s is Titus Andronicus. A lot of critics over the many centuries don’t hold the play in very high regard for its gratuitous violence, but I find it incredibly honest and it captures the true content of human character remarkably well. And of all the characters in that play the modern political left reminds me distinctly of Aaron the Moor, the main villain behind the villains of the story who once captured at the end famously quipped toward his captors that his only regret in life was that he wouldn’t live long enough to commit 10,000 more evil deeds.

Aaron the Moor was the lover of Tamora, the Queen of the Goths who was a political rival of the great military general Titus Andronicus. Behind the scenes Aaron orchestrated the rape of Titus’ daughter, and the framing and execution of his sons. Aaron had brokered a deal with Titus to spare the arrested boys talking him into cutting off his own left hand to save them, which he does. Aaron by way of the Empress sends the severed heads of the sons along with Titus’ hand as payment and continued emotional torture. As the play progresses Titus goes from a heroic military figure highly respected by the highest class structure of Roman society to an emotionally wrecked person barely sane. But that is but a ruse, as Titus is an excellent strategist. He plays at being mad to lure Tamora’s sons close where he captures them, bleeds them dry, then cuts them up into pieces to bake them into a pie, which he then invites their mother, Tamora to a reconciliation dinner that looks to be an olive branch of peace. But instead he feeds her kids to her before then telling her that the contents of the food are her own children. I simply love that story.

In many ways, Trump has had to play the role of Titus Andronicus, they’ve hit him with phony scandals no different than the worst of Shakespeare’s plays with the Russian hoax, the FBI spying by a previous administration, impeachment, every attempt through books and media leaks to erode away his character until all that was left was an insane old man broken by circumstance. Covid-19 was supposed to be the ultimate back breaker that destroyed Trump’s economy and they went all in on the effort. Only Trump didn’t go mad, he may have gone along with Covid-19 as he had to provoke out of hiding all the hidden figures causing such a menace, but he did it to keep his enemies close, not to let them control him from afar. And now he is feeding them their own children. I think its all very poetic. The bad guys are caught, and they know it. The media has been in bed with the bad guys so they are reluctant to admit it, but the truth of the matter is that once Aaron the Moor was caught in Titus Andronicus, the rest of the villains were exposed in ways they couldn’t survive. And that’s what is going to happen after this 2020 election.

With Trump re-elected, he will have a mandate for law and order, that he has not had up to this point. For the last 4 years the political left has been trying to keep him on his heels with blame and scandal that would have killed most people. The political left has been every bit as malicious as Aaron the Moor, perhaps even more so. To call the left in politics evil would be an understatement, and to understand why, you really do need to go back to the great classics of literature and see with purity the basics of humanity, which Shakespeare captured quite well. Literature in England meant something to the pre-Victorian people, and it still does to this day, so an exploration into the nature of human beings without the trappings of modern society is an excellent way to understand the truth about humanity. All the same schemes and manipulations happen today, but with television, music, movies, and video games to keep us entertained, its not so easy to see. That’s why I turn to Shakespeare to relax and to ease my mind, for me its like going camping and getting to the fundamentals of life. As brutal as Shakespeare’s plays are and as beautifully as they are written, there is a truth there that has never let me down, and has served me well in real life to contemporary measures.

It is for all those reasons that what I see out of Democrats in 2020 at every level are defeated Aaron the Moors, caught in their lies and deceit, and unhinged to the end. They see their empire of manipulation on the chopping block, and they are defiant due to they have no other option. They have been rejected and the real reality is upon them with this election, they have done everything they can do and yet Trump is still the pick of an American people who have pushed liberalism to the side and spit on it. Aaron the Moor was regretful that he couldn’t do more to cause unrest once he was captured and set for execution himself. And after this election, the Democrats and the crazy Marxist left around the world will find that they are pinned down and cannot move. They don’t have mobs with the energy to continue harassing people the way they have, they are almost out of gas and with a mandate for law and order, Trump can then clamp down on them without the fear of the issue harming his election chances—and their insurrection will be truly over.

Most everyone ended up dead by the end of Titus Andronicus. That’s good, you don’t want to leave your enemies around to continue to harass you late in life. I get it, it’s a good policy that once you know who your enemies are, to make sure they just quietly disappear without a trace never to be heard from again, so good people can live a good life without fear of more Aaron the Moors coming back to ruin everything over and over again. Titus spent much of the play letting events unravel so that he could discover the source of the attacks against him and in so doing, he went through a lot. And in the modern context, Trump has done much the same, and we see where the assassins have been living in the swamp. And now its time to turn them all into pies and to allow the left to eat themselves in the days that come with no other option for them but their own destruction. So don’t worry, the left won’t be eating and killing us after the election. They are simply going to be ingredients in the kitchen for a great meal, for which they are the contents—not the participants.
