Apres Trump, le deluge

With respect to PC, I mean, in particular.
That guy's already starting to self-destruct. This is going to get ugly--and sooner than later, Trump being against x will be in and of itself a reason to be for x. (In fact, of course, that's already the way it is for some people.)
I'm afraid Trump's anti-PC schtick is going to turn out the best thing ever for the anti-liberal left.

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

Jesus, you're not making me feel any better.
