We must understand that there really is no place of compromise with the far left in America. The left is evil, and there is no way around that truth either. The left has their own rules, Mike McDaniel offers up some wise words about these “new rules”
In 2015, the indispensable Kurt Schlichter wrote:
Today in America, a despised minority that is really no minority is the target of an establishment that considers this minority unworthy of respect, unworthy of rights, and unworthy of having a say in the direction of this country. It’s an establishment that has one law for itself, and another for its enemies. It’s an establishment that inflicts an ever-increasing series of petty humiliations on its opponents and considers this all hilarious.
That’s a recipe for disaster. You cannot expect to change the status quo for yourself and then expect those you victimize not to play by the new rules you have created. You cannot expect to be able to discard the rule of law in favor of the rule of force and have those you target not respond in kind.
This was during the final years of the Age of Obama,a golden progressive age Democrats thought would never end–could never end–so progressives doubled down on Marxism and put all their chips on a spin of the political roulette wheel for Hillary Clinton (to save you the trouble, gentle readers, I’ve already called the metaphor police and reported myself). Progressivism was our inevitable, preordained destiny, the bending of the arc of history toward social justice. Hillary could not lose,and when she was proclaimed the new progressive messiah, the long march toward Marxism and all its glories would be unstoppable.
Ah yes, Trump won, Hillary, the Neo-Marxist savior who was going to continue the work of Obama lost, and these events happened because enough Americans said ENOUGH! The Left has since lost it. And now………….
The minority about which Schlicter was speaking were normal Americans, republicans, conservatives, anyone that had not quaffed the entire bathtub of progressive Kool-aid. Then as now, the members of that deplorable flyover country minority were evil, sexist, racist, haters, Nazis, Hitlers, people who want everyone to have fully semiautomatic assault weapons with gigantic capacity magazines to kill children, when they aren’t ripping them from the arms of their parents and locking them in cages. Oh, and they’re all God clingers too, every one, and worst of all, they won’t bake cakes for gay couples and expect trans people, or whatever they consider themselves these days, to pee in restrooms reflecting the gender into which they were born. Those deplorable are peeists too!
Now fully in the grip of Trump Derangement Syndrome, progressives find deplorables devoid of humanity, lower than beasts. Because Trump is the embodiment of evil, everyone in any way associated with him, even by casting a vote for him, is also evil, and must be suppressed. There are no longer any social conventions, no basic decency, no kindergarten level politeness owed them. They may be abused, insulted and beaten. Their property may be destroyed. They and their families may be pursued to their homes and harassed at will. They are evil, and the self-righteous must give evil no quarter.
Go read it all folks. McDaniel, Schlicther, and others can see a very ugly scenario developing. We see where the targeted harassment and threatening behavior can lead. And, sadly, I fear this is where the left wishes it to lead. To violence. They push, they threaten, they surround people and their families, they push harder, they will target people’s homes and eventually, someone will be forced to use force out of fear for their life and the lives of their families. The left, of course will play the innocent victims who were just “protesting peacefully” and attempt to use such events to push for more gun laws to strip away self-defense rights, and so on, and so on.
