The ad that takes the celebrity cake appeared In the January 11 edition of The Washington Post. Page A-5 carried a full-page advertisement. The top half had large capital letters, saying "No! In the name of humanity, we refuse to accept a fascist America!"

"The presidency of Donald Trump is illegitimate," reads the ad copy in bold letters. "By any definition, Donald Trump is a fascist.  He has put together a regime who will carry out this program and worse." It even dispenses with the actual voters. "No election, whether fair or fraudulent, should legitimize this."

For weeks, the liberal media have celebrated all that Barack Obama means...to them. CNN produced a two-hour documentary on the Obama legacy that never mentioned things like annual trillion-dollar deficits. Fareed Zakaria wrapped up the show: “He ran an administration that was largely scandal-free and did it all the while under a microscope. Because he looked different.”

The secular-Left website Slate recently warned on Twitter that “’Religious Freedom’ legislation will be everywhere in 2017.” “Religious Freedom” is in scare quotes, a warning that deplorables will use that thing called “religion” as their “weapon of choice” in the coming assault on the “LGBTQ” community.

The same website is celebrating a petition urging the Mormon Tabernacle Choir to reverse its acceptance of an invitation to sing at Donald Trump’s inauguration. The freedom to disassociate becomes a terrific idea when used to reject Republicans or conservatives. Slate’s story has a hero named Jan Chamberlin, who quit the famous choir since they would be endorsing “tyranny and fascism by singing for this man…I know I could never ‘throw roses for Hitler.’”

Let us offer a philosophical question for the news media at the dawn of 2017. If the scourge of the new year is “fake news,” should we not concede that it’s not “news” to speculate about what will happen after a news event? The problem is, without speculation about the future, whether immediate or distant, cable news channels and radio news outlets would surely enter a crisis about how to fill their 24 hours a day, and newspapers would struggle to fill their pages.

Time magazine offered a double issue on “The Year Ahead.” Obviously, that cannot be defined as “news.” Nothing has happened yet.

Populism took the elites by surprise in 2016, so a review of this year’s cultural winners and losers must begin with a very long list of arrogant entertainers who thought it was completely impossible for the American people to descend into a pit of despair and ignorance and elect President Trump. No one believed for an instant the rich and famous losers who promised to move their arrogance to Canada or elsewhere if the Hillary Clinton juggernaut tanked.

The first winner is the reality-TV star himself, Donald Trump.

When Congress returns in January, the Democrats will be gunning for several Trump Cabinet nominees. The Left has already launched negative narratives on several, especially Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, Trump’s pick for Attorney General. Not only are the left-wing news media giving oxygen to these vitriolic attacks, in some cases, they are the very authors.

On their front pages on Christmas Day, both the Los Angeles Times and the Washington Post published “profile” stories on Sessions obsessing over racial matters.

2016 hasn’t been a hot year for discussions of a rhetorical “war on Christmas” in our malls or public schools. Maybe we've tuned out the secular hostility in our culture. We've gone from banning Linus reading from the Gospel of Luke to banning Christmas to banning Santa Claus and now to banning even the thought of a holiday since for others it might not be. 

But the deadly truck attack on a Christmas market in Berlin gives the phrase “war on Christmas” much more gravity and serves as the latest reminder that the secular media in what used to be called “Western civilization” has shown far too little concern for violent attacks on Christianity, the faith that created Western civilization.

Two months ago, the liberal media erupted in horror after the third presidential debate when Fox’s Chris Wallace challenged Donald Trump to accept the election results, and Trump said he would “wait and see.” NBC described a “flood of condemnation” and cited President Obama accusing Trump of “undermining our democracy.’ Today co-host Savannah Guthrie called it an “earthquake.” Guthrie turned to retired anchorman Tom Brokaw to denounce Trump. “This is not a banana republic,” he said.

Conservative Twitter wit Stephen Miller unleashed his latest “President Ash Carter” joke recently at the unseriousness of the outgoing president: “President Ash Carter has made an unannounced visit to troops in Afghanistan. Barack Obama announced he’s going on The Daily Show.

While liberals complain that Donald Trump will never be serious enough to be president, or insist Trump must grant a press conference, Obama is keeping up with his round of adoring interviews with liberal late-night comedians, from Stephen Colbert to Samantha Bee.

As Barack Obama’s White House days run out, it’s time for Obama’s obsequious courtiers in the liberal media to announce his glorious “legacy.” On December 7, CNN devoted a two-hour prime special to the Obama legacy, hosted by Fareed Zakaria, a journalist Obama had invited to the White House so the president could soak in his wisdom and expertise – in other words, so he could flatter a journalist into giving him softball coverage. Mission accomplished.

On December 4, the second Sunday of Advent on the Christian calendar, Fox’s Family Guy cartoon mocked two-thirds of the Holy Trinity as only Fox Entertainment can. In atheist Seth MacFarlane’s gag, Jesus Christ had a human son who he mocked for being bullied at school, comparing that to the horror of the Crucifixion. When his son called him a “dick,” he suggested God the Father was a bigger “dick” for sending Him to His death. 

On that same day, the Sunday New York Times ran an enormous article sprawled out over three pages of the Arts & Leisure section with the question “Can TV Be Fair to Muslims?”

Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg is under enormous pressure from the Left to crack down on “fake news” on the social-media giant. Zuckerberg is well-advised to run as far as he can from the News Police.

In a recent note on Facebook, Zuckerberg claimed he wanted to err “on the side of letting people share whatever they want whenever possible....We do not want to be arbiters of truth ourselves, but instead  rely on our community and trusted third parties.” The hard left, beginning with President Obama, wants to be that “community,” that supposedly disinterested “third party.”

Liberals in the press have spent weeks trashing “fake news” purveyors -- which is to say, those in the press who are not liberals -- while continuing to bow deeply to the fake news-makers at “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central.  Jon Stewart and New York magazine writer Chris Smith have written a new book called “An Oral History of The Daily Show," and they're the toast of Leftyville.

CBS host Charlie Rose set the adoring tone for Stewart: "[I]t became, for all of us, a, kind of, cultural event — more than a show." Rose later added, "There was nothing quite like him. A lot of people did it very well....But Jon had a special place." It’s annoying how liberals speak “for all of us.”

One of the world’s last brutal communist dictators, Cuba’s Fidel Castro, died at the age of 90. While Cuban exiles celebrated long into the night, on America’s “objective” networks, they pulled out hankies and mourned this despot’s filthy works and celebrated the hellhole he made.

The dictator was dead, and they were still spreading his official lies about a terrific health-care system – where the doctors are paid $30 to $50 a month or are shipped to socialist “partners” like Venezuela. Brian “Fake News” Williams claimed that Cubans use donkey carts instead of automobiles “because that’s exactly what they’d rather have for transportation.”

Vice President-Elect Mike Pence was in New York with his family during the transition, and so he took his family to Broadway to see Hamilton, the hot hip-hop Founding Father musical  that people are overpaying to see. What resulted wasn’t exactly surprising. Rude, obnoxious -- but not surprising.

But at the curtain call, Pence was singled out for an impolite leftist lecture from the stage about the cast's "alarm and anxiety" about the future under Trump.

Dear Mr. President-Elect:
 
Everyone else is giving you advice, so why can’t we? (Then again, last time you asked our advice, we told you over lunch that winning was not in the cards, so you might be hitting the delete button before this sentence is complete.)

Before the shock of President Trump wears off, let’s remember to tip our hats to Tinseltown. What would we do without them? These were the self-absorbed Beautiful People who called on America to become as enlightened as they by supporting Hillary Clinton. They proudly donned their “I’m With Her” buttons. 

Now, like their candidate, they are in a state of shock. America’s response on November 8 was: Go pound sand.

Donald Trump is a persistent critic of the media and is attacked for not granting them enough access. But there he was, three days after the election, the president-elect taping a long interview with CBS and 60 Minutes, where he could expect Lesley Stahl would push, push, push from the Left.

Stahl presented him as a terror for minorities. “I want to ask you all about something that's going on right now around the country. A lot of people are afraid. They’re really afraid. African Americans think there’s a target on their back. Muslims are terrified.” Trump accurately replied that’s “horrible,” but it’s “built up by the press.”

The election has passed, and the American people gave the spoiled celebrities of Hollywood the heave-ho. Despite all of their earnest YouTube lectures and pro-Hillary concerts and campaign appearances, the next president is Donald Trump.

Little did they realize that John Q. Public is done with these multi-multi millionaires positing themselves as champions of the working class, or even more remarkable, the downtrodden. Get out the popcorn for their wailing and gnashing of teeth on the Internet. On election night they went certifiably bonkers.

The pundits got it all wrong. They believed the media and their spin, not just on the coronation of Hillary Clinton, but more important, on America’s repudiation of Donald Trump.
 
They saw Trump’s voters just as the Clinton campaign saw them: a basket of deplorables. All season long the pro-Hillary press treated Trump’s followers with utter contempt. At the same time the leftwing media were giving aid and comfort to Hillary Clinton, covering up her scandals when they could, spinning them in her favor when they couldn’t.
