Those Crazy Democrats

Daniel Greenfield explains in Frontpage Magazine.

The socialists are having a moment. At least if you believe the media

But if the socialists were really having a moment, their big show wouldn’t be a 28-year-old birdbrain whose big achievement was beating a boring white guy in a Hispanic district he didn’t even live in.

If you’re going to take over the Democrats, you need something more to show for it than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or a senile socialist who came in number 2 in the primaries and then again in the DNC.

The Democrats are adopting socialist ideas wholesale. The 2020 Dem nominee will run on a guaranteed minimum income or ‘Welfare for All”. Along with free health care, free college and free copies of Das Kapital. And socialism polls brilliantly with the four core Dem bases of angry government workers, angry college students, angry welfare recipients and San Francisco eco-billionaires who keep all their money in Caribbean banks. But that’s because the Democrats have no ideas except hating Trump and Republicans.

And never, ever, works, but you knew that

Trump’s victory tore the mask from the Democrats leaving them nothing but rage. Formerly mainstream Democrats are quick to embrace every insane lefty position from abolishing borders to supporting Hamas, not because they understand or believe in them, but because they’re “resisting” Trump.

The socialists think they’re winning. But they’re just the guys shouting things at a crazy mob. And the mob is not really for anything, it’s just enraged. It doesn’t want to build, it wants to tear down.

Tweak a normal person’s sense of outrage and they’re moved. Keep doing it a bunch of times and you can enlist them in a movement. Do it every 5 seconds and you drive them as crazy as rats in a Skinner Box. And if you want to see a sample of the Dem Skinner Box, here are a few Nancy Pelosi emails.

“A matter of life or death,” “I’m so furious I can barely write this email,” “As if it couldn’t get worse today,” EVISCERATED,” “I’m scared”, and “DOOMED”.

Peak Outrage induces feelings of frustrations, fury, helplessness and despair.

Remember how we felt on November 7, 2012? I do, I wrote about it. But later in the day, we got tired of crying in our beer, and got on with life, and working to make things better, and the result was Trump. But the Dems aren’t doing that, they’re wallowing in their self-pity, blaming all the world for their shortcomings, and they’ve driven themselves crazy.

The ultimate beneficiaries of Peak Outrage won’t be the socialists. Crazy people who have been mainlining hate and fear for a decade aren’t really interested in nationalizing health care. They’ll cheer socialism if there’s nothing else on the table and convince themselves briefly that they care. But what they really want is someone to liberate them from their rage and helplessness by destroying the two sources of those emotions, the reviled Republicans and their own failed Democrat leaders.

They don’t want Alexadria Ocasio-Cortez. They want to be freed of their sense of helplessness.

The Russia narrative, the accusations of treason and the daily promises that Mueller will lead Trump in chains to the guillotine, are far more seductive than collectivized farming or abolishing borders.

The Democrats have become a mob looking for a leader who will make them feel strong and sure. That leader wasn’t Hillary Clinton. But it won’t be the socialist opposition either. Antifa or Black Lives Matter may be more like it. Hitting the outrage button is also all they know, but they offer a better release for that helplessness and rage than making campaign contributions to lefty candidates through ActBlue.

Democrats have embraced eliminationist rhetoric toward Republicans that teases the desires of the base, but is incapable of satisfying them short of a socialist revolution with firing squads and gulags.

And so on, do read his article at the link. But it is true, the only thing they seem to care about is Trump, and the fear that he might succeed, and the Normals with him.

I don’t know the answer for the Democrats, but I know this, they are becoming more dangerous than a rabid dog, and this incarnation of them needs to be put down. Because if it isn’t, eventually there will be blood in the streets.

America is a different sort of country, far from all of that blood will be from the guillotine, and then there will be peace.

    Well, they could extrapolate what the four horse apples said about folks of faith asking then about this situation “Why say all things good come from socialism? Why not say they come from you?” Of course that’s too much like individualism, requiring personal achievement and responsibility. 🙂

    Maybe we could create some really enticing fake news for them. Something like, Angela Merkel is offering to give every Democrat a guaranteed income, free housing and healthcare. Ships will be sailing off to Europe from every American port until there are no longer any awaiting passengers.

    Then we can pull their citizenship papers and passports and leave them there whilst Making America Great Again. And good luck Ms. Merkel . . . enjoy!
