One of the things that most bothers me about the “Never Trumpers” is their obsession with the man. I get that they don’t like him – fine, don’t have him over for dinner – but they seemingly wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat screaming his name. Everything, in their minds, is about him and they can’t stand it or shut up about it; it’s beyond their control. The same is true, though in a different way, of the radical left. They have this uncontrollable compulsion to be as far-left as a drum circle in San Francisco, even when it damages their cause. They can’t control what they say because they can’t control their crazy, and thank God for that.


The best thing we conservatives can do for our side is not silence the left, it’s amplify them. That’s why the liberal establishment hates things like the LibsOfTikToc Twitter account – it puts millions more eyes on something one of their fellow travelers themselves posted online. They wanted their circle of likeminded weirdos (or what the left has incorrectly labeled “community”) to see it and no one else, ever. It was for their eyes and ears only, the people who agree with them and are willing to play make believe as they create new genders and pronouns as if in a mad scramble to see if there is some line out there the “progressive establishment” won’t cross. 

They find there is zero limit. If you’re willing to vote for Democrats, there is no bridge too far. Think of all the Democrats who sucked up to Ed Buck and Jeffrey Epstein long after it was known what they were. 

Behind the scenes you kind of expect that, we’re dealing with politicians after all. But you’d think there’d be some point where, like cockroaches when the light is flipped on, they’d scramble because some part of them, probably very deep down, they recognize what they’re pushing is a type of crazy that turns off normal people; a kind of crazy that won’t sell.

That bit of self-awareness does not exist on the far left. They are either unwilling or incapable of dialing it back.


On the education front, cramming critical race theory down the throats of children is not only wildly destructive, but it’s wildly unpopular. Democrats used to deny they were doing it, remember that? It didn’t take long, however, for that to change into “You just don’t want teachers to teach about slavery, racist.” What the hell happened to “No one is using CRT in schools?”

It, like most everything Democrats do, was a lie. 

Rather than recognize they were doing things against the “will of the people,” they doubled-down. The people overwhelmingly don’t want it, and the screamers of “THIS IS WHAT DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE” are ignoring their will and pushing forward because that’s what fascists do. 

“Democrats should stop hiding and start fighting Republicans on hot-button education issues like battles over teaching racial issues in school, according to polling at the heart of a new push by the American Federation of Teachers ahead of the midterm elections,” starts a post on the liberal blog NBC News. That’s a long way from just a few months ago when they denied they were doing it. But don’t worry, you can totally trust them with your kids…

(Same goes for trans-story time and the concept of grooming kids into rejecting reality, but that’s for another day.)

Leftists can’t even control themselves enough to help other leftists lie on their behalf.


CNN’s Fareed Zakaria wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post hoping to help Democrats win, or at least lose less, in November because that’s what “serious journalists” do, they take sides. The headline was simple, “Forget Pronouns: Democrats need to become the party of building things.” 

That’s objectively true, especially the first bit about pronouns. But the left is no longer about objective truths, they are only interested in their version of “my truth,” which isn’t truth at all, just opinion. 

As if a comedy skit, leftists started whining on social media about how “un-inclusive” it was to say they should “forget pronouns.” Chasten Buttigieg, whose only accomplishment seems to be his last name, tweeted, “Addressing someone by the name/pronoun they prefer is free, easy, and kind. Using them builds community and belonging. Democrats can walk and chew gum. We can fix roads and build bridges while also making it a little easier to go about your life. That’s called freedom.”

Ignoring reality so some snowflake can continue to pretend they are what they are not, or they’re some kind of bird or fairy or whatever is no compassionate, it’s stupid. There isn’t a single poll showing anything close to support for everyone pretending a man is a woman so they can dominate sports, for example. We shouldn’t need Michael Jordan and other retired NBA greats to pretend to identify as women so they could dominate the WNBA (because you know, even at his age, he would). They could make that league into the NBA senior circuit if they wanted to (and they’d finally attract an audience), but they don’t, and liberals don’t want them to, because they want an avenue for women to play professional sports. Because there is a difference between men and women, real men and real women.


Zakaria’s piece was simply telling these people to calm down a little and pretend to be sane and rational, just through the election, because their craziness is turning off a lot of Americans. Unsurprisingly, they could not control themselves. Once the circular firing squad is formed an execution must take place. 

After a few more tweets by other blue-checkmark nutballs, the Post removed the “Forget pronouns” from the headline. They had made Zakaria’s point in a way conservatives never could. Thanks for that. 

I so love it when Frankenstein’s Monster returns to the lab where he was made to destroy, don’t you? These people unleash destruction everywhere they go, it would be wrong to deny them what they force on others. But it does show you just how deep in the left the rot goes, that even for their own electoral survival they can’t control themselves. Zakaria’s piece didn’t make it half a day. 

These people need to be absolutely destroyed in November.
