The indispensable Kurt Schlichter wrote a compelling article in February of 2017 titled: The Left Hates You: Act Accordingly. In my many years of conversations with Conservatives, I’ve yet to find anyone that actually hates their political opponents. They find them misguided, angry, irrational, and often are amazed at their hair-triggered, spittle-flinging hatred, but they don’t engage in that sort of self-destructive emotion. They don’t hope for the misfortune and deaths of those that fervently wish that for them. They would not think of publishing their personal information, or attacking them at their homes. Not so the Left. Consider this from Schlichter:
They hate you.
Leftists don’t merely disagree with you. They don’t merely feel you are misguided. They don’t think you are merely wrong. They hate you. They want you enslaved and obedient, if not dead. Once you get that, everything that is happening now will make sense. And you will understand what you need to be ready to do.
You are normal, and therefore a heretic. You refuse to bow to their idols, to subscribe to their twisted catechisms, to praise their false gods. This is unforgivable. You must burn.
Crazy talk? Just ask them. Go ahead. Go on social media. Find a leftist – it’s easy. Just say something positive about America or Jesus and they’ll come swarming like locusts. Engage them and very quickly they will drop their masks and tell you what they really think. I know. I keep a rapidly expanding file of Twitter leftist death wish screenshots.
They will tell you that Christians are idiots and vets are scum.
That normals are subhumans whose role is to labor as serfs to subsidize the progressive elite and its clients.
That you should die to make way for the New Progressive Man/Woman/Other.
Understand that when they call Donald Trump ‘illegitimate,’ what they are really saying is that our desire to govern ourselves is illegitimate. Their beef isn’t with him – it’s with us, the normal people who dared rise up and demand their right to participate in the rule of this country and this culture.
I’ve watched, for years, Leftists, particularly in the Obama Administration, label veterans as dangerous subversives, more dangerous than Islamist terrorists, who must never be identified as Islamist terrorists. I’ve no doubt such people hate me—like Schlichter, I’ve received a great many comments to prove it–even though my primary concern is honoring and observing the Constitution. Actually, they hate me because I am dedicated to defending and preserving the Constitution, which is rather Schlichter’s point: they hate self-government, normal people who insist on asserting their individual rights, normal people who dare to think they’re capable of running their lives, normal people who don’t buy the idea self-imagined elites are not only qualified, but plainly entitled to rule everyone else. This is why Donald Trump so deranges them, as Fox News reports:
Trump Hitting the Bottle … of Water: Donald Trump held a press conference this week to celebrate his foreign tour and the media obsessed about him drinking out of a bottle of water. This wasn’t just reminiscent of the media feeding frenzy over Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., it was further spurred by the senator.
NBC called it: ‘Trump’s ‘Water’-Gate’ on screen. At least the network hasn’t called President Trump ‘Nixon’ … yet. White House Correspondent Kristen Welker depicted it as ‘this awkward moment that lit up social media, the President pausing to take a sip of water.’ MSNBC went gaga over the bottle. ‘Trump takes two water breaks in one speech,’ it headlined a video.
The ‘CBS Evening News’ spent 44 seconds on the story, mocking Trump’s speech, ‘that appeared for a time might run as long as the 12-day journey itself.
These are the same people that can’t imagine why normal Americans don’t trust the Media. They think any criticism of their Leftist political advocacy masquerading as news is a threat to the First Amendment, the very foundations of Liberty. Media talking heads declare anyone that does not only buy everything they say, but fails to praise them as the saviors of mankind, dangerous to the Republic. It’s as though they imagine the media–they–are the true, best guardians and epitome of the republic.
In 2015, when it looked like Florida Senator Marco Rubio might be a contender for President, the media went after him with a vengeance, insanity I chronicled in three articles. The first, Marco Rubio: Out-Of-Control Lawbreaker, recounted breathless media accounts of Rubio’s traffic tickets: .22 citations per year from 1997 to 2015. The second, Marco Rubio: He’s Not Rich! spoke of Rubio’s fiscal profligacy, including his “luxury speedboat” (a 24 foot fishing boat), and how he refinanced his mortgage to get lower payments (what sort of madman would do that?). They even published a photo of his obviously middle class home with two vehicles, a SUV and a pickup truck, parked out front, which demonstrated that Rubio is middle class and owns–perhaps with the help of a bank–two middle class sort of motor vehicles. And the third, Marco Rubio: He Worked Hard And Did Well For His Family—The Republican Bastard, was the shocking story of how Rubio, with hard work over nearly a decade, and taking advantage of opportunities sparked by that hard work, managed to raise his income, without resorting to illegal means. Is there nothing these evil normal Americans will not do?
But then we come to Donald Trump, who, in working tirelessly to restore the rule of law and to reign in the Administrative State, is destroying the Constitution, or at least the Constitution Leftists are always trying to ignore and destroy.
And the latest evidence of his perfidy and evil? During a speech, he took two drinks from a bottle of water. Two drinks! Water! Can anyone now doubt he must be impeached? Can anyone now doubt he’s trying to destroy the nation?
Can anyone now doubt the hatred that so suffuses Leftists has debilitating effects? Does anyone now doubt there can be no compromise with such people? Does anyone now doubt they hate us? Act accordingly.
