We keep saying the left has gone insane, and frankly, it seems likely.
I mean, what kind of political party/choice marches in the street shouting they don’t want their country which allows them to do this to exist?
What kind of people convince themselves that our free for all republic, which practically begs women and minorities to participate is a white supremacist patriarchy? (Other than people who have never even heard of a white supremacy or a patriarchy, much less lived in or visited one, of course.)
What sort of people gin up accusations against an innocent man, for the sole purpose of retaining power?
What kind of people tell us that this time socialism will be done right, in the face of a hundred million graves?
What kind of people want to “punch a Nazi” and define Nazi as “anyone who disagrees with me and doesn’t want a powerful centralized government”?
Their antics, their insanity, the phantoms and alarums conjured up by their media arm? Their lies? Their hate of everything that can keep civilized society going?
The question is, why are they insane? Or more importantly, why do they ACT insane?
The first one can have many answers, and it could be said that people who support a controlled economy went bonkers when communist country after communist country came apart at the seams, and exposed the fact they’d always been hell on Earth.
They behaved as though communism/socialism/statism were a religious faith. When prophecies fail to work out, religious fanatics paradoxically experience a recrudescence of faith. This seems to have worked for the left, after the curtain fell.
If we wanted to prod on that, we’d probably uncover their inability to accept the inherent evil and tragedy of human life and desperately wanting the government as a god-substitute to “just make the bad things go away.” It’s not a grown up response, but it’s very human.
BUT given all that, it’s still inarguable that they are acting crazier than they have even since the wall fell. It’s inarguable that they’ve lost all touch with reality and keep thinking they can scare/beat/intimidate us into doing what they want. They keep showing it too, and showing how much they hate America. And yeah, they hate America (No ICE, no Wall, no America at all! is their chant.) with every fiber of their being and are convinced it’s oppressive and evil. Which yeah, argues for insanity.
Part of their crazy act is screaming increasingly crazier lies, like, you know, that the election was manipulated by Russians. Or that the tax cut cost you money. Or–
Because it worked before. They took George Bush, possibly the most liberal squish Republican president ever, and screamed 24/7 about his being a blood-thirsty monster and literally Hitler. About his wanting to put them all in camps. About his wanting to conquer the world and steal its oil.
My colleagues would sit at science fiction con panels and tell us how much the Bushhitler regime had cooled their willingness to speak against it. And how they were afraid of a knock at the door. They’d say this in front of 300 people and act brave, unaware that the very circumstances made them liars.
There were peace demonstrations. There were screams at the fact we might play Britney Spears at Gitmo detainees or deprive them of sleep.
And all of that is a fraction of what they’re doing to Trump.
They’ve gone violent, shot our representatives. They’ve called for the rank and file to be violent with us.
We’re looking at them and wondering how they’ve gone so crazy, and what they’ll do next.
Well… you have a choice on that. Not a huge choice, but a choice.
They’ve gone crazy because it paid off in the past. Their lies and constant screaming about George W Bush got him from the most popular president ever after 9/11, to barely squeaking through his next election, to losing the midterms in 06. (After which the left got hold of the economy and destroyed it, and because people on the street blame the economy only on the president, that got them their demi-god Barry the Unready and a sweep of the legislature in 08. (It also took CO to the dems, from which we might never recover.))
So, why are they acting crazy and going crazier? Because it worked before. They think it will work again.
If you don’t get off your duff, get out there and vote straight ticket GOP, if they win even just the house, it will have worked again.
They will be confirmed in their insanity plus terror tactics.
Do you really want to see how bad it gets next?
Good. I don’t either. Get out there and vote for your local GOP horrors even if they’re only marginally better than your local dem horrors.
What’s at stake here is delivering a sanity check, a bucket of cold water to the left, and trying to bring them to rationality and sanity. Or at least, you know, within shouting distance of it.
Because if this goes on, it ends in rivers of blood. And that’s not what I want for my kids, my grandkids or my country.
So go and throw a bucket of cold water over the hysterical left.
It’s all you can do.
