The Ongoing Dementia

Last week, an unhinged Twitter rant became the most popular thing in the liberal echosphere. Sam Kriss breaks this down and hits on a theme I’m returning to more and more: how badly Donald Trump’s election has unhinged the Left. Those of us who blogged the Bush years remember how bad it could get. This looks even worse.

    It does seem like there’s a collective mental breakdown going on, among the people who for years, even decades, lectured us about their intellectual and moral superiority. They have suddenly discovered how irrelevant they really are. Expect years of therapy and wailing to come.

    Petulant children throwing a tantrum because reality intruded into their fantasy and destroyed it. They deserve nothing but ridicule and abuse considering their reaction isn’t self reflection but to accuse others of being subhuman and evil for daring to topple their house of cards.

    kinda of related, I wonder what the real reason they shut down the Michigan, an Pennsylvania recounts.  it seems suspicious to me when they found all the problems in Detroit, I would not have been surprised if they found similar problems in Philly, and Pittsburgh. then this leads into why the Democrats are having a hissy fit about loosing, when you fix the election and still loose you will become unhinged.

    I confidently predict it’ll be a nice convenient way of letting Trump off the hook time and time again. ‘Look at the crazy liberals trying to suggest our guy is shitting the bed again, fucking liberals I hate them so much’.

    It is far more than that RonK. They spent the last 8 years weaponizing the government and expected Hillary to basically cut that machine loose on those of us that had until then resisted their charge to “fundamental transform what was left of America” after Obama had not completed the work they wanted. Hillary was to basically wipe her ass with the Constitution and recreate the marxist utopia they all fantasize about, and rollover any of us that dared speak out against it.

    Now they see Trump, the one guy that played by their rules and won, and fear he will do to them what they all wanted Hillary to do to the rest of us. And it scares the living shit out of them. Especially since Trump has successfully defeated their hold on information and managed to go directly to the people, albeit with help from whichever disillusioned democrat it was that leaked how corrupt the DNC and Hillary campaign were, to make sure we know how corrupt and vile these people are. Couple that with their justified abject fear that even if Trump is a mediocre president he will contrast how bad Obama has been, basically putting the stake through the leftist vampire’s narrative and ideology, and you can see why they are freaking out.

    No wonder they accuse him of being Hitler: he plays by the same rules as their Hitler (Hillary), and he actually knows how to get things done. This is why the DNC operatives have already begun finding all those old tropes of the Boosh years that they turned a blind eye to during the Obama years, and in their desperation done so even before Trump was in office, making it more obvious how worthless they really are.

    The only proper response to these scumbags is mockery.

    These cunts are acting as if the world has come to an end and throwing a childlike tantrum, because reality refused to conform to your ideology. That doesn’t reflect badly on Trump, but on you assholes, that for example, suddenly discovered all the things you like to whine about that went away under Obama, again. 

    As someone who has and will continue to vocally oppose policies and political methods advocated by Trump, I have every faith in Alex to be able to rationalize away anything that happens to be as a consequence of my (always non-violent) actions. So partisan and bloody minded has he become that any punishment meted out to me will be nothing but my own fault.

    Trump needs people like you, Alex. No doubt you will be rewarded.

    Absolutely, stogy. Rich has made it very clear that he will also do the same. Nothing will be judged on his merits. This from a guy that had a serious issue with the private party Michelle threw with her own money ffs. If I get anywhere close to that sort of partisan lunacy, please shoot me.

    Did you miss the subject of this post douchebag? It’s about the left throwing a tantrum and acting like spoiled brats. Let me propose an experiment to you. Go back to 2008 when Obama won and see how the left treated anyone that pointed out Obama would be a disaster, which he was, and then come back and tell me that if it was not for double standards you assholes would have none.

    The strategy from the left is clear: they will burn the country down rather than let Trump prove they are bankrupt and corrupt fucks. Unfortunately for you douchebags, you better get used to stories like this and being made fun of for in general simply showing you are just a bunch of wreckers.

    Absolutely, stogy. Rich has made it very clear that he will also do the same. Nothing will be judged on his merits,

    Not a chance in hell if those “merits” are nothing but more of the same lefty talking points and falsehoods. Click that link above and judge that by its merits you idiot. Read the idiotic replies with liberals unable to even admit that the stock market jump (the same market Krugabe predicted would implode and never recover) is a repudiation of the Obama economy and a reaction to the election of Trump. And get used to a lot more of that shit.

    Er… birthers, anyone? I don’t think you have a leg to stand on here, Alex. Best quit while there is still a smidgen of sunlight you can peer up at from the bottom of your hole.

    I’m personally not a huge fan of Obama, and I think he leaves office with a lot left half done. However, far from being a complete disaster, he leaves with very high approval ratings, a declining federal deficit, and a recovering economy. Internationally, I would agree that his presidency has been very weak and his legacy – apart from perhaps the Iran agreement – is poor.

    While you can argue that Obama has been a unmitigated disaster – and it is certainly your right to do so – painting this as a universally held view is quite patently untrue.

    Er… birthers, anyone?

    That came from Saint Hillary Clinton’s campaign, a fact most of you lefties conveniently ignore. How seriously where they taken? And do you remember the left’s response to them? Here is a refresher.

    I don’t think you have a leg to stand on here, Alex. Best quit while there is still a smidgen of sunlight you can peer up at from the bottom of your hole.

    Yeah, keep telling yourself that douchenozzle. Trump won. Deal with it. It is going to be fun to watch him rip your shit up.

    Seriously dude? That meme got discredited almost instantly. It was made up.

    Trump won. Deal with it. 

    Like the Republicans did? …. er didn’t? Years of birther distractions, blocking everything? Blocking SCOTUS and other appointments? Undermining institutions and creating bad precedents? Seriously, man, this is pathetic. Here’s what Obama actually said (from your own link):

    “You don’t like a particular policy or a particular president? Then argue for your position. Go out there and win an election. Push to change it. But don’t break it. Don’t break what our predecessors spent over two centuries building. That’s not being faithful to what this country’s about.”

    I am doing exactly what the link you posted suggested – I am arguing my positions: working against bad policy, trying to improve institutions, and supporting other people doing the same. That’s NOT being a bad loser. I am happy to work with Republican supporters who feel the same.

    It is going to be fun to watch him rip your shit up.

    Yeah, drain the swamp, eh? Like he himself said a couple of days ago – the words mean nothing to him.

    He could just as well rip your shit up. I hope your house isn’t on the way anywhere important. Eminent domain is not Trump’s strong suit.

    Unfortunately Alex doesn’t give a shit if something is made up. He constantly makes up shit himself so why would he have an issue with anyone else doing it.

    Don’t forget Mitch McConnell making it their number one priority to oppose everything Obama wanted to do.

    Trump even thinks he won by an electoral college landslide. He literally continues to say anything, irrespective of whether it’s even remotely true. I said it well before the election – Alex and Donald are a natural fit.
