James Taranto, Best of the Web column on the Wall Street Journal site:
If you’d told us in 2013, when we identified the problem of liberal-left authoritarianism, that Donald Trump would be the solution, we’d have laughed along with everyone else. But he was probably a necessary corrective. The left has waged asymmetric political warfare, routinely traducing the same norms is was demanding its opponents respect. Trump beat them at their own game, and that might have been the only way it could be done.
