Ace has an explanation for why the left has gone completely nanners. 11-9-2016 was the Progressive’s 9-11-2001.
But the Trump Terrorist Event — the fact of Trump’s victory — hit them much more deeply than 9/11 did. They didn’t just lose two towers and 3000 people on November 8, 2016.
[…]11/8 stole from them the two things most sacred: their sense of superiority and infallibility, and their precious political power over the people they hate.
And they’re reacting rather poorly to that.
The daily hysteria, paranoia, conspiricizing, meltdowns, tantrums, out of left field accusations — these are not signs of healthy minds.
We are used to saying X Derangement Syndrome but I really think there is some actual derangement going on.
In a follow-up post, Ace explains how the whole Donald Trump thing happened.
After eight years of Obama and a culture becoming increasingly comfortable with rule by progressives (and rule by progressive fiat as well), and with the prospect of another eight years of President Hillary Clinton on the horizon, there was no other choice for the country but to storm the cockpit and take the controls and take a chance on either saving itself or crashing — hence, The Flight 93 Election.
Either we do something dramatic, or it’s all over, and we just give up.
[…] “The Crazies” might have a bit of a point when they say “I voted for Trump because I’m fucking afraid of what’s coming next” or “I don’t care if Trump’s a bastard, and I don’t care if he’s not really conservative, I feel I need protection and no one else is even pretending he’s willing to risk a damn thing to provide it?”
You can either think half the country is “crazy,” or you can consider the possibility that people who do not have a great deal of money, or media presence, or connections to the political machinery of the country feel like they’re in a more precarious position than you are not because they’re crazy but because they actually are in a more precarious position than you are.
A feminist bookstore in Cleveland is acknowledging “Womny’s Herstory Month” by turning all books by male authors backwards, because burning them in a huge fire outside would have been too on-the-nose.
Harriett Logan, the bookstore’s founder and owner, told Heat Street. “So we are in essence not just highlighting the disparity but bringing more focus to the women’s books now, because they’re the only ones legible on the shelf.”
ICYMI, PDT this weekend accused outgoing POTUS Barack Obama of spying on him, which the Democrat Media Complex was quick to deny on Obama’s behalf. No way would ex-President Boyfriend ever do such a thing, and Trump was deranged for even suggesting it.
What is the standard of proof the Democrats are demanding to back up the allegation that Obama spied on Trump. Follow up question: What is the standard of proof Democrats used to conclude as fact that Russia hacked the election to install Trump as his puppet so Soviet tanks can roll down Main Street and take over our precious bodily fluids because it’s 1956 and the Red Menace is back again, baby?
Bear in mind, this is Barack Obama we are talking about. This is a guy who won his senate seat because his political operatives got a judge to release salacious details from an opponent’s divorce records. This is a guy who vastly expanded NSA spying and lied to Congress about the extent of it. This is a guy who used Federal agencies like the EPA and the IRS against his political opponents. This is a guy whose White House operation admitted to manipulating the press with propaganda so that his administration could help a hostile foreign Government access billions in American taxpayer dollars. This is a guy who used Government intelligence agencies to spy on journalists.
So, yeah, using Government Intelligence agencies to spy on a political opponent would be entirely consistent with Obama’s history and modus operandi.
The Democrat Media Narrative hangs on a narrow, technical definition of “wiretap” (physically implanting a listening device on a telephone landline, which is almost never done anymore because who uses landlines) to provide Obama an out. But was Donald Trump under surveillance by the Obama administration; it’s highly plausible.
