Ace did a long essay tonight on how the Left (especially the media left) has gone completely insane since the election of PDT. A couple of examples he overlooks are just the fact that the Democrat Media Complex has gone to defend the MS-13 gang, violent hate groups, and even Kim Jong-Un solely because Trump has criticized them.
I found myself wondering if things would be different if the left had backed away from the crazy a few years ago. Think 2013… the left literally had everything. Obama … Obamacare… gay marriage… absolute cultural supremacy. (Yeah, Republicans had Congress, but they were as collared and submissive as a Fire Island twink.) What if they had been satisfied with controlling everything, and decided it was enough and just behaved like gracious victors.
But, everything wasn’t enough. The left wanted even MOAR. Having gay marriage wasn’t enough, they had to bully Christians into baking their gay wedding cakes, and making their gay wedding floral arrangements… even host gay weddings in their homes. And it wasn’t enough that they controlled all the power in Government and Culture, they had to humiliate conservatives, drive people from their jobs for holding the wrong opinions, sterilize the campuses of all non-leftist opinions. Deprive men of Constitutional Rights at the caprice of feminists.
And, for a while, it seemed like they could do exactly that. And they loved it. They loved being the bullies. They loved the power to humiliate their opponents and people they just plain didn’t like. And they got used to it, and they assumed (correctly) that under Hillary, they would have even more power to bully, to humiliate, to crush. And, of course, the left-wing activist organizations couldn’t just disband and find real jobs. They had to push the envelope, so they adopted the transgendereds as their new cause.
If they had just backed off and just enjoyed their victories, maybe they wouldn’t pants-crapping insane, writing “F**K Trump” on the wall with their own feces right now. And it’s quite possible that if the left had stepped back from insanity, that maybe Trump wouldn’t have happened.
