The left has always been a bit unhinged. The press, for its part, has often coddled and even sympathized with their anti-social behavior. The vitriol the left levied at President Bush, including comparisons to Hitler and calls for assassination, was routinely overlooked by the media. More recently, calls for killing cops were glossed over even as it started to happen. In contrast, even the smallest criticism of President Obama was immediately declared racist by the same people. This pathological indulgence of the radical left has embolden them and increased their tendency towards violence.
Over the last eight years, the left has become increasingly intolerant. College campuses, with their safe zones for progressives and socialists, have become increasingly hostile to conservatives. Threats of harm against conservative speakers have become commonplace, even as rooms with Teddy bears and liberal literature are provided to those offended by common sense. When left leaning wing nuts, and anarchist, rose up under the guise of Occupy Wall Street, their main contribution to society were lawless camps where rape, drugs, assault, and trash were commonplace. Nonetheless, Democratic politicians and media pundits flocked to embrace them. Similarly, Black Lives Matter thugs have burned minority businesses, ransacked black neighborhoods, and encouraged attacks on police to the applause of the same pundits and politicians.
Into this milieu walked Donald Trump. He represents an existential threat to this fanatical new world order. While not a conservative, or even an ideologue, his proposals are a slap in the face to disarrayed minds of the lunatic left. His often crude language cut them to the quick, and carried the day with their opponents. That he defeated their ideological kinswoman at the ballot box seems to have been more than they could stand.
Their sensibilities having been duly offended and their hopes clearly dashed, the reactionaries have seemed to have lost all sense of proportion. To call their reaction to Donald Trump’s election over the top would be a clear understatement. A summit of European leaders was called on how to deal with The Donald, and lefties have gone to wearing safety pins to show solidarity with one another (ostensibly, the pins represent a safe person for the like minded to commiserate with). If this was all, it would be enough to declare the left en masse a bunch of psychotics, but the looniness unfortunately didn’t stop there.
There have been calls for Trump’s assassination from journalists, businessmen, and crazies from all quarters. Violent riots and protests have erupted across the nation, and suspected Trump supporters assaulted in the streets. It seems there weren’t enough “safe spaces” for weak minded liberals to run to. A major meeting arranged by George Soros of Union Bosses and other liberal elites strategized behind closed doors on how to stop Trump. As Trumpers have rightfully pointed out, though twitter banned #Hillaryforprison , it’s allowing #assasinatetrump and other despicable tags including tweets calling for the rape of Melania Trump. Leftwing groups are even paying protestors in hopes of keeping the pandemonium going.
President Obama has been trying a carrot and stick approach to Trump. Showing humility, offering transfer of power assistance, and “kindly advice” on one hand, while encouraging more riots on the other. A vain attempt, no doubt, to salvage his legacy. A few others have called for calm, and even self introspection. But, mostly the left have decided to rage on incoherently, or like Noam Chomsky, declare the Republican Party evil incarnate, and an eminent threat to civilization itself.
Somewhat surprisingly, the Democratic Party is imploding as well. Instead of correcting for its failures, it is set to veer even further left. Its leading candidate for party chairman has a history of antisemitism, and associating with terror supporters. Kieth Ellison, a supporter of slavery reparations, is a member of the socialist connected Congressional Progressive Caucus. The once great party, whose mantra was “we are for the working man” is now almost exclusively the bastion of elitist and social justice levelers. Wholly dedicated to advancing a socialist agenda, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren represent the Democrat’s new center.
The left’s virulent response to Trump’s election needs to be a wake up call. America is hanging by a spider’s thread above a fiery socialistic hell, with its flames flickering ever nearer. It is yet to be seen if a flawed figure of a man, Donald Trump, is the one to turn back the tide. But, if the rabidity of the left’s response is any indicator of success, he seems to be off to a good start.
