It can’t be a surprise. After all, the Democrat Party has bulldozed every norm, custom, and tradition out there in its quest for undisputed power. It spews hatred at its opponents – hey, everyone reading this is racist, sexist, and a denier of #science and so forth. The Democrats will happily deny you your free exercise of religion – put on your aprons people, because you can bake a cake or be bankrupted. They seek to suppress speech by encouraging fascism both in academia and by online tech companies, and if you think they won’t pass laws to limit speech given the chance, you’re fooling yourself. Hell, they tried to amend the First Amendment to overturn Citizens United, a case where the government tried to ban a movie critical of Hillary Clinton.

Let’s say that again, because it’s madness. The position of the left-of-center party in the United States is that the government should be allowed to arrest and imprison people for making a film critical of a politician.

He is also mirroring what I wrote here and here From the second link:

[T]he left and Democrats are becoming very nonchalant about demanding the nullification of the Constitutional rights of anyone who disagrees with them. This is not to be taken lightly. They mean it. Give them a victory in an election and they will begin to do it.

I have seen nothing in recent events to change that conclusion. If anything, the rise of radical socialism in the Democratic Party only reinforces it.

    The Democrat party is in a self created existential threat phase, and why is that? Because the everyday Liberal Democrat politicians of America who are now full blood Leftists / philosophical Marxists have exhausted their schemes to extort the peoples money through taxation and and are now bankrupt of ideas and so the next phase of their agenda must be even further Left.

    Barack Obama gave the true Leftists among them the inspiration to make their ultimate play for Socialism through the Globalist agenda, and Hillary was to be the coupe de grass for our Constitution. The Democrats will at some point have to abandon their offensive to Americans Marxist philosophy and rebuild in a more America centric manner or they will be no more.

    Sooo close.

    After all, the Democrat Party has bulldozed every norm, custom, and tradition out there in its quest for undisputed power.

    It is called deconstruction and has been taught for several decades now. It is very insidious, just like PC is, because parts of it sound very reasonable but when you look at it in totality and not just in small parts, it is just cultural marxism working over a long period of time to implement a Year Zero.

    Deconstruction atomizes norms, customs, and traditions. It was sold as gaining understanding about our culture and how it was developed. Also, that we shouldn’t ignore the bad things about the past but be reminded of them. However, the end state of this process is not understanding but delegitimizing the foundations of our culture, society, and country.

    Perhaps the most prominent application of this process is how the left treats the Founding Fathers. They were all flawed humans who made a great system. If you mention the great system, the left responds that you must like the flaws. We have all seen it a million times. You defend some attack against freedom of speech, the second amendment, or some other core American value by referencing the founding ideals of the country and the lefty responds that you like slavery and hate women.

    There was an article about this the other day when a school told its students to party like it was 1776 and the response from the marxist social media mob was that it wasn’t a party for black people cause they were all slaves. It was an incredibly ignorant response considering that black people fought in the revolution, not all states were slave states, black people owned slaves in the New World, black people in Africa were the ones capturing and selling slaves to the Europeans, and life was pretty hard back then even for the wealthy.

    It is troubling that black people are taught to identify as slaves rather than as heroes in the revolutionary war. Given the choice, which would they choose if they were alive at the time? Black people have a long history of military service going back to our founding. It is something to be proud of but I bet $5 that the cultural marxists are incapable of portraying it as something to be proud of rather than a case of victimization because of deconstruction.

    I think it is more fundamental than political philosophy. These people are mired in iniquity:

    “Their throats are open graves; their tongues practice deceit. The poison of vipers is on their lips.”

    Note that I’m not promoting conflict, just discernment.

  • Cotour

    Why are they so deceitful and poisonous?

    Because they have to be, ultimately they can be nothing else, and long term the people of America are seeing them for what they are.

  • Cotour



    The wheels turn slowly, but we can detect that they are indeed turning as the American people communicate their displeasure with the Left. And then there will come a point in the not too distant future when all will properly see and the reconciliation will be unstoppable.

    I’m surprised that the Democrats appear so united in their extremism. I would’ve expected a great deal of variation because in the US every politician is elected by a local majority. That should force them to profile themselves differently individually depending on local issues and the profile of rivals. Trump is changing America and the Democrats refuse to participate. That will hurt them very badly for a long time. Are the none-extremist Democrats waiting for the right timing to break out from the charade? Or are they all as extreme as they appear?

    In most European countries one does not vote for any individual, but for a political party whose unelected and anonymous party board members in secret meetings have listed loyal individuals who are weak and incapable enough to not pose any threat to the power of the party board members. Almost all of them are completely unknown to all voters, both before the election and after having served in parliament for 16 years. They have no reason to show themselves in public, they are only internal party placeholders without own will or any interest in politics. A typical European parliament in effect only has as many seats as there are parties. The actual people sitting there only represent how many votes their unelected party board got. It is as if you replaced congress with the electorate college.

    From a slightly esoteric angle; These psychopaths are creatures that have no conscience and are empty inside, everything is external to the persons. I think that is why they manifest the way they do, nothing inside, and that bothers them greatly, so they spend their existence bothering the normal people..I think C S Lewis covered this already…

    The problem is that the left requires that everyone march in goose step — I mean lock step — and any deviation from the accepted norm of the day (and it can change daily) is met by shunning the person who is out of step. This is why so many leftist celebrities keep getting into trouble with their tweets or other comments, because they say what was correct yesterday rather than what is correct today.

    The Democrats have succeeded in turning California into a single party state. Now they are fighting each other as to who can turn it into a communist state. I have to wonder who will play the role of Leon Trotsky.

  • Phill O

    vonmazur You wrote “These psychopaths”. I believe a more correct definition should be sociopaths. Yes, they have a seared conscience. I know two sociopaths of lesser stature. They will be doing time. One has won 2 years, the other to be sentenced July 10.

    Laurie has the same idea, put in a slightly different way; but says the same thing.

    Localfluff You write what I have noted for some time: Degradation of society has a natural flow from Europe first, then California, Vancouver Toronto and the rest of North America. I define this slipping into degradation as moving in the opposite direction of the “Ten Commandments”, the basis of Mosaic law, which, if fallowed, will make a country great.

    When the Democrat party adopted An anti god stance years ago, no matter how small and narrow then, they began the destruction of the American Society that built this nation. This idea eventually became a policy and eventually authoritarian in its implementation.

    When a majority of the population has no belief in GOD or a supreme being that will eventually inflict punishment on you that society begins to lose all of its cultural standards that built that society.
    the people start to think that they can do anything they want, no matter who it hurts, up until they are caught and placed in custody. After release they can go back to doing what they want.

    The only thing that could possibly replace an all watchful god is an ever pervasive and all seeing government. A government that can watch you all the time and in all things. Eventually controlling everything about your life.

    Monotheistic religion stumbled across this thousands of years ago and its worked for this whole time.
    Religion built our conscience, that little voice inside our heads that helps us tp do good works even when no one is watching. Government can not and never will build such a thing.

    Monotheistic religions real ultimate purpose is to find and hold to good traditions and beliefs that promote a stable and safe society. Ultimately controlling and stabilizing the peoples governments by those same traditions and beliefs.

    No God, no religion, no traditions, no conscience.
    Democratic Republics eventually devolve into rule by majority. Thus oppression of the minority.

    And I continue:


    I say, Lets do it!


    “Under the message line, “horrific,” she wrote June 18: “This is a moral and humanitarian crisis. Everyone of us who has ever held a child in their arms, and every human being with a sense of compassion and decency should be outraged.” ”

    (The Democrats are desperately looking for a negative meme to cast the Republicans, specifically Trump. This in the long term will be a failing effort. Why? Because ultimately its Un American. Presidents, Clinton, Bush AND Obama did the same exact things related to illegals and their children. Hillary / The Clinton’s never miss an opportunity to use children as a political weapon, its their go to meme.)

    My personal observation is that when ever a politician attempts to engage the public and uses the terms or related terms “Moral” or “Morality” or panders to the public’s “Decency” or their “Compassion” they have nothing other than their attempting to create fear and confusion, Hillary hits them all. She is truly an empty vessel who’s walls consist of pure ego and ambition, and believes in nothing other than acquiring power at any cost. And I mean any cost, bank on it.

    As we all watch the Democrat party self destruct, live and in real time, because they have become a political party that by their own words and deeds actually stands against the American people and is now an anti America political party lead by full blood Leftists and Socialists. Remember, what do the Democrats now stand for and what are the subjects of their excited political discussion? 1. They vociferously defend ILLEGAL immigration and call it immigration. 2. The culture of dependency, the welfare state. 3. “Sanctuary cities” where they by design bring the first two together to build the foundation of their party (With other peoples money, your money, your tax money that they absolutely with abandon and without conscience love confiscating and redistributing to “Others”).

    So I say sure Hillary, lets do it again. It would be the biggest, baddest and most ridiculous show on earth, something that Trump looks forward to eating for breakfast every morning, its what makes him grow stronger. (You know, after he pokes some caged illegal immigrant children with a stick)

    The Democrats like I have said previously are in the process of internally destroying themselves, lets sit back and enjoy that show.


  • Cotour

    This Thai soccer team trapped in the cave is going to make one hell of a movie, I am certain that Hollywood producers are clamoring to sign someone who can validate their version of the story. (How did they get there in the first place?)


    But it makes a really crappy political analogy and meme, a true sign that the Democrats are desperate for some leverage against the Trump juggernaut that keeps on throwing up wins. The Democrats have nothing that says “This is what we are in America and this is what we stand for!”. Zip, nothing, nada.

    They got a whole lot of nothing, other than their Anti American platform and imagery that is the foundation of their party that is now situated firmly in the subconscious of much of the American public. If they are unable to make this one thing, “The caged illegal immigrant children, ripped from their caring parents arms”, they have got nothing. Trump is going to continue to steam roll them into the ground.

  • Cotour

    I just came upon this article about mayor debalsio (Lower case mayor) and I found it to be very concise and to the point an excellent short read on the danger of the political class and who the people choose to empower.


    Kevin D. Williamson, my new favorite writer.

  • wayne

    I recall Williamson as being quite the raving never-trump-er, but I pretty much gave up on National Review, so I just don’t know anymore.

    Ref: Rent Control in New York City– The “war emergency tenant protection act” of 1943 got the ball rolling and then the Revised New York State Emergency Tenant Act of 1974 basically consolidated all the various rent control & ‘stabilization’ laws that derived from the original 1943 act.

    What is it all about?


    (Fusions, Glen Simpson pleads the 5th, his lawyer claims “Russian collusion!” No criminal activity by his client. Right, thats what everyone has come to the conclusion to about Mr. Simpson and what the DNC was paying for.)

    The coming mid term elections, thats what its all about.

    The FBI refuses to give up the evidence that the Congress reasonably demands (Which everyone understands reveals the FBI and DOJ and the CIA working with foreign actors to violate private citizens rights and to depose a duly elected president) the same for the DNC, Fusion, Perkins Coi and all of the associated players in this treachery and drama.

    The president has backed off on releasing the fraudulent FISA documents and has essentially handed it off to the Senate to do. Why? Because I think Trump does not want to step on the Mueller (Fraudulent) special investigation any more than he has to. Trump is playing in a very interesting and complex game where time and cautious moves are player elements of consequence for all involved.

    Why? Because this all lives or dies with how the mid term elections play out. Will the people of America empower the Democrats and most all of this goes away? From Hillary’s emails to the validity of the Mueller investigation itself to Uranium One or will the American people re empower the Republicans under the clear pro American leadership of president D.J.Trump?

    Ideally the American people have no real reason to empower the Democrats since they have no real leadership and are showing just how desperate, violent and bereft of any true American agenda they are. Everything they now stand for is Un or Anti American. No reason at all to empower the Democrats.

    I think either way that Trump and his reelection is assured, the Democrats have shot themselves in the foot many times and on so many levels to the point that the American people must be scratching their heads and are asking “What are these people really about?”.

    You may not personally like Trump but his results are what they are. Trump understands that its very hard to argue with actual results and promises kept. Especially when promises kept is an unheard of concept when we are discussing most all politicians.

    Blue wave? I think not.
