It’s Time To Hate Them Right Back

It’s not paranoia if they really are out to get you. For conservatives, Republicans, and pretty much anyone not sufficiently “woke” enough, the “progressive” left has made it clear they’re slapping targets on their backs. They are coming for you, if not right now, very soon. If you aren’t one of them, Democrats hate you. It’s time to hate them back.

It was not a good week for Democrats. After a rough first day for President Trump’s legal team, they beat the House Impeachment Managers like a redheaded step-child. Speaking of redheads, White House press secretary Ginger Goebbels admitted the administration’s definition of re-opening schools means half the schools in the country open one day per week for at least some students. And New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s top aide confessed to state Democrats that they’d covered up his killing more nursing home residents than most countries have seen deaths because they were afraid the truth might damage them politically.

If that weren’t enough bad news for the left, their pet project imploded too. The Lincoln Project was exposed as a grooming gang – at least one of the co-founders was a pervert offering to trade sex with young boys for career advancement to nearly two dozen victims, the youngest being 14-years-old. After stern denials from everyone who’d made a fortune from this grifting organization, reports are that they knew, that it was an open secret ignored because the money was too good to rock the boat.

Naturally, CNN and MSNBC have mostly ignored these stories because, when you hate someone intensely enough, there is nothing anyone on your side can do capable of holding a candle to people who exist wrong. Doing bad things is acceptable if it’s in pursuit of people who are worse.

Axios, a poorly written blog that posts outlines as news stories, this week posted a glimpse into the future plans of Democrats to rid the country of dissent. “How to deprogram America’s extremists” is a peek at not only what Democrats long to do, but how they view anyone who isn’t them, and it’s not pretty.

“It will take an all-out national effort to dismantle the radicalization pipeline that has planted conspiracy theories in the heads of millions of Americans and inspired last month's attack on the Capitol,” the piece opens. It’s important to keep in mind the left is framing this as a targeted effort toward the very few people involved in the riot, but they really mean anyone who refuses to conform to their demands.

The word “extremist,” like so many others Democrats have bastardized, means you. It doesn’t mean BLM-ANTIFA rioters who’ve spent a year killing people and destroying cities in riots in the name of “justice,” another word they’ve redefined. Any passive watching of cable news or reading of a newspaper makes clear that if you voted for Donald Trump, or even just didn’t vote for Joe Biden, you are an “extremist” in their eyes.

So what do they want to do? Ban you from everything. The first Axios bullet point is, “Keeping extremists out of the institutions where they could do the greatest damage — like the military, police departments and legislatures.”

You’re out. Don’t think boys should be allowed to dominate girls’ sports? Welcome to the extremist club. Believe life begins at conception, you’re in. Like the idea of limited government? Nazi!

That last one always struck me as odd since Hitler was a progressive socialist, but truth and history are now being rewritten in pursuit of the power the left exists to obtain.

While advocating a purge under the banner of tolerance, the left tips their hand. “A purely punitive, security-minded approach alone is likely to prove ineffective and invasive at best, experts say. At worst, it will only fuel extremists' sense of persecution and push them closer to violence,” they write. “Instead, experts agree serious resources need to be mustered toward providing an offramp for people who have been drawn into extremist ideologies.” Reeducation camps, anyone?

They never define “extremist,” they leave it purposefully vague to allow the reader to fill in the blanks. But they mean you. They won’t start with you, but they won’t stop till they get you.

Never ones to let a good “crisis” go to waste, Democrats are framing their desire to “otherize” any opposition to their agenda as a threat to the very existence of the country while their agenda seeks to “fundamentally transform” the country into something it was explicitly created to never be. They want more power, and if they have to do horrible things to those who stand in their way to get it, so be it. They really do hate you, more than you know. It’s time to hate them right back.
