Mr. Obama, striding resolutely into the bold, Marxist future, bringing salvation to us all. And he’s glowing!

It started, I suspect, with Barack Obama.  The Left came to believe it finally had the opportunity to fundamentally transform America into a socialist kleptocracy.  Obama, though some thought him a messiah, was something of a disappointment to the hard left.  His narcissism and monumental ego–everything was always about him–kept him from fully embracing and implementing the far Left’s complete agenda:

In his biography of Obama, ‘The Bridge,’ David Remnick, editor of The New Yorker, quotes White House senior adviser and longtime Obama friend Valerie Jarrett: ‘I think Barack knew that he had God-given talents that were extraordinary. He knows exactly how smart he is. … He knows how perceptive he is. He knows what a good reader of people he is. And he knows that he has the ability — the extraordinary, uncanny ability — to take a thousand different perspectives, digest them and make sense out of them, and I think that he has never really been challenged intellectually. … So what I sensed in him was not just a restless spirit but somebody with such extraordinary talents that had to be really taxed in order for him to be happy. … He’s been bored to death his whole life. He’s just too talented to do what ordinary people do.

Oh, how we disappointed Barack and Michelle. We were just too ordinary.  Obama, who once said he believed his own bullshit, disappointed the far left even more, but then came Hillary.

They knew she was a kleptocrat, corrupt as the day is long, but a committed Marxist, and a doddering drunkard they could manipulate. Their media arm was entirely on board and they were sure she’d be elected.  Then they could really go to town on the transformation of America, and there would be nothing and no one to stop them.  They’d establish a permanent leftist majority.

And then Donald Trump won, sand was thrown into the gears of the inevitable progressive revolution, and the best they could do was enlist the intelligence apparatus, the DOJ, the FBI, and the Deep State to try to undo the election.  Those damned deplorables refused to vote for the right person!  They dared ignore their betters!  Who the hell did they think they were?  They’re still trying.

But as they’re trying, they’re showing their cards. Should they ever take power again, they’ll turn America into Venezuela–they support the murderous dictator as they do most murderous dictators–and they will absolutely ensure they can never be removed from office.

Ellen Swenson, writing from behind enemy lines in California explains how the Democrat controlled People’s Republic of California has written election laws to not only make election fraud easy, but to make it hard to prove.  As California’s laws are presently written, there may never be another Republican elected to federal office from that state, and it is more and more likely none will be elected within the state.  Swenson warns Democrats are ready to push the same laws nationally.  She writes at PJ Media:

If you think California’s laws and practices cannot affect your state, think again. After a successful 2018 election (some say through the benefit of California’s ballot harvesting and other laws), newly powerful House Democrats’ first legislative act is HR1, an attempt to nationalize the mess that is California. Automatic voter registration with lax oversight of your state’s expanding voter rolls, ‘seeding’ mail ballots to every registrant, and then ‘harvesting’ these ballots may be in your state’s future.

While HR1 is not likely to pass the current Senate, parts of it might. Also, beware: California Secretary of State Alex Padilla is the new chairman of the Democratic Association of Secretaries of State (DASS). Over his four-year term, Padilla sees his work with DASS as an opportunity to encourage other states to pursue policies similar to California because ‘we think we have the right ideas.

I’m sure they do.  Vote fraud is already rampant across the nation.  Democrats intend to make it the new normal, and should they succeed, no Republican will take office again.  Oh, they might allow compliant, “stupid party” drones content to live on table scraps thrown them by their intellectual and moral betters, to win here and there, just to give the appearance of fairness, but the presidency and control of the Congress will bend the arc of history toward social justice and Marxism, and like Barack Obama, they won’t wait for the People to give them permission.

At The Federalist, John Daniel Davidson explores the leftist culture war in full cry in the Covington Catholic School hoax:

It’s hard not to see the parallels here to the Brett Kavanaugh affair, the Rolling Stone-UVA rape hoax, and the Duke Lacrosse scandal. In all these cases, the rush to judgment hinged on the race and perceived privilege of the accused. They were guilty not based on the facts of what happened, they were guilty because of who they were: supposedly privileged white males.

The Covington high schoolers were in this sense the perfect villain for the social justice outrage mob. Not only were they mostly white, male, and Catholic, the entire reason they were in Washington was to attend the annual March for Life. As noted cultural commentator Alyssa Milano put it, ‘Let’s not forget—this entire event happened because a group of boys went on a school-sanctioned trip to protest against a woman’s right to her own body and reproductive healthcare. It is not debatable that bigotry was at play from the start.’

Milano is right that bigotry was at play from the start, but not quite in the way she means. The manifest, unquestionable bigotry at play is that of media figures and celebrities whose unfiltered contempt and rage bubbled up and spewed forth the instant they saw a smirking white kid in a MAGA hat face-to-face with an old Native American man.

Bigotry is what now animates the unrepentant members of the media like Deadspin’s Laura Wagner, who describes the ‘visibly aggressive teens’ as ‘draped in racist, misogynist paraphernalia.’ Bigotry is what’s behind comments like those of Mollie O’Reilly of Commonweal magazine, who declared, ‘You don’t let your kid wear a MAGA hat and then act offended when they get taken for a racist.’

These are not the thoughts and feelings of people who want to share a republic and live in peace with their political opponents. If opposing abortion or supporting the president marks you out as a bigot and a racist, then civic comity is impossible, there is nothing left to say, no way to compromise or live and let live. The only thing that’s possible is a zero-sum contest of brute strength. The only thing left to do is silence or destroy your enemy.

In December of 2018 I wrote The Second Civil War.  In that article, I feared that America is on the path to a second civil war, and it may not be possible to avoid it. Why?  Democrats no longer believe in American Constitutionalism.  Oh, one may argue “moderate” Democrats aren’t that way, but there is less and less evidence of their existence, and the Party is clearly beholden to and driven by the socialist/communist wing of the Left. And this year, Islamists have added their influence.  I wrote:

I have long considered what would be required to provoke a second Civil War.  The kindling is arguably already in place.  America’s divisions are deep.  The national and local Democrat parties have demonstrated they no longer believe in American constitutionalism, if indeed they ever did.  Victories won by Republicans on election day are later overturned by ‘harvested’ ballots that often exceed the number of registered voters, and which magically appear once Democrats know how many will be required to win.  Democrats do not accept any election won by Republicans as legitimate.

Democrats no longer honor the Constitution and most no longer feel any reason to conceal their disdain.  When they take an oath of office to uphold and defend it, they’re lying.  The law–any law–must be what they say it is and change whenever they please.  When they take power again, and they will, America as we know it will be over.  The rule of law is already lost.  Our Justice system is already two-tiered.  As I noted in my earlier argument, when they come for the guns–and they will–that will be the last straw, though it take awhile for normal Americans to rise up.

Should President Trump build a partial wall on the Southern Border–and lawfare will prevent that–any wall requires constant maintenance and vigilance.  Among the first acts of a Democrat president and Congress will be the removal of Border Patrol assets including the technical means they deceptively claim will secure the border.  Illegals will take care of the rest, and form a new electorate that will be willing to vote for the right–Left–people in exchange for the wealth of legitimate Americans.

Compromise is not possible.  What will normal Americans compromise?  National Security?  Public safety?  The Constitution?  The Rule of Law?  The right to self-defense?  Leftists do not compromise, as Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are so ably demonstrating. For the representative republic the Founders envisioned to survive, every American must support the Constitution, and be willing to live with the results of honestly conducted elections. Without that, we will eventually devolve to brute force, which will mean the government will come for everyone’s guns, and then…

Accepting American constitutionalism is the only thing that can save us.  That’s the only compromise–giving up totalitarian designs–that matters. That’s why I fear it may already be too late.
