meme-nostalgic-pity-trainWatching the left’s reaction to the 2016 has been a mixed bag. Most of all we are seeing a full frontal display of the core essence that make up the leftist mindset; immaturity, violence, hatred, narcissism, denial, self-absorption, and entitlement.

It is telling that Washington is spending millions in preparation of the rabble that will soon be swarming the city to protest Trumps inauguration. They have no choice given the violence and millions of dollars of damage done thus far by “protesters”. But note this… While I’m sure this is a banner year, Washington has to spend this kind of money and does this kind of prep EVERY time a Republican takes the oval office (since Nixon). Every time a Democrat is sworn in… the cost and prep is minimal in comparison. Again, it’s telling…

The main thing we are seeing is the left lashing out like wounded animals or exhibiting the first two stages of grief/loss (denial and anger). They latch on to anything and everything to blame and explain what they cannot fathom. Villains and scapegoats abound; Jim Comey, Russian Hackers, Fake News, the Electoral College, and the oldie, goodie, tried and true… racism of the winners and the unwashed who put them there.

They know there must be an explanation of the loss of Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump. Like O.J. searching for the real killers… they will look everywhere… everywhere except at a Party/ideology out of touch OR a flawed candidate with a flawed message.

I am actually somewhat grateful for the childish display; because for the rest of America it is confirming. Maybe not so much that Donald Trump is the right man at the right time to bring us back from the brink… but that the left isn’t, never was and never will be.

So I’m going to write a few posts on what I’m observing concerning the various aspects of this leftist lashing out, grasping, and blaming.

So let’s get started…


The Electoral College

Let’s start with the Electoral College since it is pretty prominent on the list and relevant since they actually vote tomorrow (Monday 12/19/16).

The Electoral College was one of the first villains latched onto by the flailing left.

Again exposing the hypocrisy of the left, if the results had been as they expected (and predicted), Hillary winning the Electoral College and losing the popular vote, the left would be extolling the virtues and protections provided by the institution provided by the founding fathers. The left has no fondness for the popular vote, the electoral college or even democracy. They only care about power which they believe they are entitled to.

As punishment for not falling into leftist lockstep, some on the left say the Electoral College must be eliminated and the Presidency decided by popular vote. The electoral college after all is… wait for it… racist. (And you wonder why people roll their eyes when this crap is spouted again and again and again.)

But wait! The left isn’t really sure whether they should attack or embrace the Electoral College (at least for now). On one hand, they instinctively attack it because those numbers didn’t go their way… so it must be abolished. At the same time, they are saying “Wait! the Electoral College IS a safety valve put in place to stop this very thing (Trumps election), so that sane minds could override the ignorant electorate.” Thus the organized efforts to get enough electors to switch and deny Trump the needed count.

Case in point, Martin Sheen (and various other actors from “The West Wing”) produced a video seeking to get electors to change their votes, stating (as a group)…

“Republican members of the Electoral College, this message is for you. As you know, our Founding Fathers built the Electoral College to safeguard the American people from the dangers of a demagogue and to ensure that the presidency only goes to someone who is to an eminent degree and down with the requisite qualifications. I’m not asking you to vote for Hillary Clinton — just don’t vote for Trump… As you know, the Constitution gives electors the right to vote for any eligible person. Any eligible person — no matter which party they belong to. By voting your conscience, you and other brave Republican electors can give the House of Representatives the option to select a qualified candidate for the presidency… What is evident is that Donald Trump lacks more than the qualifications to be president. He lacks the necessary stability and clearly the respect for the Constitution of our great nation….

See… right there, that’s insulting. The balls it takes for a bunch of leftist actors to turn to the Constitution (which they pretty well detest) as the means of thwarting an election is phenomenal. But using the charge that the man who won is unfit because he lacks “respect for the Constitution of our great nation” is beyond the pale. To make this assertion after supporting Barack Hussein Obama for eight %^$#ing years! Hypocrites one and all!

Obama - Standing on Constitution

Sheen (and his ilk) pledge that anyone who votes their way will go “down in the books as an American hero,” will “have my respect.”

Which gets back to a basic biblical truth electors should consider. If the world loves you, you are of the world. The last thing I would want would be the admiration and respect of these shallow, worldly, @ssholes. They’re not interested in you, justice, democracy, or the Constitution; they just want power for their side.

So my stance is… let the left scream, stomp, curse, knash their teeth, rend their garments, and show their collective @sses… well, I mean more than usual… Once this little scheme fails (tomorrow 12/18/16), they’ll be ready to toss aside the evil, racist, Electoral College that just a breath ago was designed to “safeguard the American people”.

Side Note: In fact, the Electoral College was put in place as a compromise to get the small states (what would have been fly-over country back then) to approve the Constitution. Without it, those states would have been ignored in the grand scheme of national elections and politics. AND those (very valid) concerns should still worry fly-over country today. Luckily the Electoral College is literally Constitutional, making it nie-impossible to be rid of it. Good.

People scoff and ridicule the notion of “Intelligent Design”. Me? I don’t care. I’ve always seen proof of God in the nature of things. And… I know that faith is important to God. So important that he will never allow logic and science to prove (or disprove) Him.

Yet the scientific community is a bunch of hypocrites. While they hate “Intelligent Design”; for years (decades really) “science” has been used to support and promote a religious and social agenda. It just happens to be a secular religion they approve of. One that also happens to throw bundles of cash their way… Science has become a whore; a snobbish, popular, high-class whore; but whore none-the-less.

When inconvenient facts cease to support theories; science uses Orwellian newspeak to adjust the theories. It’s no longer “Global Warming”… it’s “Climate Change”. It’s must be nice to have a theory that is proven repeatedly by the simple observation of the weather changing. Who could have foreseen that!?

Instead of forming tests for hypothesis, “scientist” sits back; wait for an event; and then publish a paper or release a news article that their theory has once again been proven…
“The Earth is warming… but there is record ice in Antarctica…”
“The warming is the reason there is more ice…”
“How long have you known global warming would cause more ice?”
“Since yesterday when I heard there was more ice…”
“Great. Here’s a wheelbarrow full of money to keep studying this important phenomenon…”

It has become mainstream for science to tolerate intellectual dishonesty. It keeps the collection plates filled.

Actually… it is. Speech you (or I) hate is free speech.

Freedom of speech is something the left really has a hard time grasping.

Their main problem with it is the concept that it applies to any view other than theirs. As they see it, liberals exercise free speech, their opponents exercise “hate speech”. And “hate speech” is something they the left have an right and obligation to squelch; even through the use of government.

One might try to persuade the left that by denying someone their first amendment rights, you are endangering your own free exercise of those rights. But they generally can’t get past the idea that they are simply battling and regulating “hate” which is something completely different.

Then there is the concept of “consequences” to free speech. When liberals try to wrap their little minds around “consequences” they get all schizophrenic.

On one hand they totally understand that they have the power to extract revenge on those they disagree with; through slander, campaigns, boycotts, kiss-ins… But turn the tables on them and they shriek to high-heaven that you are infringing on their free speech.

A perfect example was the Dixie Chicks years ago. The whole mess was a great example of various people using free speech. I doubt very seriously the Dixie Chicks and their supporters feel the same.

It all started when these (very talented) musicians became isolated from their fan base. They hobnobbed with the Hollywood elites while their fans visited honky-tonks and drank beer on the tailgates of pickups. The band had no clue their fans were any different from their Hollywood acquaintances.

Then they (their lead singer) disparaged President Bush while at a concert in London. How could that have been a big deal? They did it all the time with their friends in California. Their fans, on the other hand, saw this as very disrespectful to the nation and to some extent the President.

Back home they discovered the country music listeners demanding that radio stations not play their music. If they did the listeners said they would turn the dial. So, the radio stations complied. Meanwhile the country music listeners stopped buying their albums (me included).

“We don’t want this war, this violence, and we’re ashamed that the President of the United States [George W. Bush] is from Texas”
How’s that working out for you…

The band was pissed and defiant and I don’t think they ever realized this was the end. They released one more album (award winning) which pretty well told their fans to go to hell; and then they just faded off… They may still exists (as a band), but they are no longer headliners…

    Now this whole episode was a great example of free speech being alive and well in the U.S.

  1. The Dixie Chicks said what they said and were never in any danger of a government entity punishing them in any way.
  2. Their fans exercised their free speech and said we don’t want to financially support you guys anymore. We won’t listen to radio stations that play your music and we won’t buy your albums.
  3. The radio stations exercised their free speech and listened to the guys that pay the bills (their listeners)

Now the Dixie Chicks and left threw a fit that their free speech rights were being infringed upon because the radio stations no longer played their music. Not so, the radio stations are under no obligation to play their music.

The Dixie Chicks and left also threw a fit that the fans (I’m sure they thought it was just a few troublemakers) were causing all this trouble. But that is the very essence of free speech. Causing trouble to affect change; be that trouble directed at government, or individuals. I suppose the Dixie Chicks would have some entity keep track of the fact that I bought all of their previous albums and force me to buy their future albums. In the free market of ideas… it doesn’t work that way.

Then and Now
The left recently had their proverbial butts handed to them with the Chick-fil-A fiasco. They want to punish the company soooo bad for their stance on traditional marriage. The bile they have built up must be intolerable.

Yet, all they’ve accomplished is thousands and thousands of supports for Chick-fil-A and record breaking sales for the company on an appreciation day.

The kiss-in they held was so anemic; even their friends in the MSM (Main Stream Media) couldn’t make it look like anything of consequence. Now they’re hoping to duplicate an appreciation day for Starbucks; the leftist coffee company to try and save face.

Yep… Liberals love free speech… THEIRS! It’s your hate and how you have the gall to express it that they can’t tolerate.
