For the record, I agree with Pickle Rick in the comments on the previous post: Trump is the last peacetime president.
The Left always goes to the gun. Violence is a feature, not a bug, of their worldview. The only question is when, and given that the Left is made up of exceptionally dumb, impulsive children, the smart money is on sooner, not later.
Speaking of exceptionally dumb, impulsive children, I didn’t see the “press conference” — really, a Trump-bashing pep rally — held by the so-called “Squad” yesterday, but since I’ve got basic historical literacy I didn’t need to. It was just seven years from the Port Huron Statement to the Weather Underground — just seven years, in other words, before spoiled, coddled preppies decided that change was taking too long, and should be accelerated via firebomb. Please note that those were 1960s preppies — White kids, from intact families, who went to good schools where they got real educations. Their parents came of age in the Depression and World War II, so they had decent role models.
If those kids decided to get violent in just 7 years, how long do you think “the Squad” is going to wait?
That name, in fact, tells you everything you need to know. Simultaneously frightening and childish, it calls to mind your high school’s Mean Girl clique in paramilitary gear. And they’re Millennials, Basic College Girl edition, which means they make the 1969 version of Billy Ayers look like Fabius Maximus. Remember how I suggested that the Dems’ 2020 convention in Milwaukee might make the “Chicago Police Riot” look like a weekend at Disneyworld? These days, I’m seriously wondering if they’ll even make it to 2020. It’s not like Democrats have any problems about shooting each other when the party votes don’t break their way…
As aneurysm-inducingly lulzy as the thought of the so-called “Justice Democrats” running their own ticket is, there’s no way a Democratic party split happens peacefully. Why would they bother? They’re going to the gun no matter what in the next few years. Even if they win the Presidency, the guns are coming out — they’ll be too busy rounding us up to start shooting each other right away, but again, basic history shows what happens in a successful Leftist revolution. The execution of useful idiots, too, is a feature not a bug of Leftism in power.
Fun times ahead. Do you see what I mean about everyone always misjudging the pace of change? Even five years ago, I would’ve called myself a lunatic for writing something like this. Hell, maybe even three years ago. And yet…. here we are.Loading Likes...
