It was bound to happen given all the Socialist Brother's continuous exhortations and calls for violence. The calls for impeachment, assassination, the assertions of illegitimacy, the sheer invention of Russian manipulation and the overall absolute outpouring of venomous hatred all pointed at one man and the people who voted for him to be President of the United States. All beginning from the very moment the Political Left realized that their candidate LOST.
Putting aside all irony and hypocrisy that this reaction invites since the media did nothing but badger presidential candidate Trump to accept the results of the 2016 election, one cannot help but notice the rising tide of violence perpetrated by a group of people, bound by a rigid ideology, who have since the 1960s grown increasingly intolerant of anybody who does not believe what they believe.
Sound familiar? It should.
What difference is there between Mr. James T. Hodgkinson, the man who just opened fire on Republican Congressman at a baseball practice in Washington, DC and, say, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the Paris killer? Pardon me, the 2015 Paris killer.
Both belonged to radical groups that had no tolerance for "Deniers", Both attempt to force their antiquated and narrow world view upon the majority population who do not believe what they believe. But most important, both had no qualms about resorting to brutal acts of violence to achieve their goals.
They both dream of world domination and subsequent paradise.
And they were both motivated and taught by prominent, high placed spiritual figures to go forth and change the world. One listens to a radical Imams like Anwar al-Awlaki, Abu Bakr al Baghdadi and Anjem Choudary and the other listens to radical Imams like Steven Colbert, Wolf Blitzer and Charles Schumer.
And they both want to overthrow the sitting government. To be more specific, democratically elected sitting governments.
And that's just like any less-than-mainstream group that has done throughout time. They have made the destructive decision that if they can't win at the ballot box, they will "win it" in the streets.
And here we are. Surprised it took so long.
"Oh Wal Man," you say, "There is a big difference between a Radical Islamic Jihadi and a Democrat! You are just being dramatic! You see, the radical Imams are SUBVERSIVE and good people like Bernie Sanders, Maxine Waters and Chuck Schumer are just FIREBRANDS. Ya see? Big difference."
I haven't seen any difference.
I have a good friend since childhood whom I've always tip-toed around when it comes to politics. He's VERY Left-wing and ever since the 2016 election he just blurts out statements like "Trump's a Fascist!" Just totally out of the blue and way out of the context of the conversation we were having.
Sometimes we're not even having a conversation.
He's become so pre-occupied by what is going on, he's hardly in touch with what is really going on. Which is the Radical Left, so used to having their way the last 8 years, is suddenly finding themselves losing their shit!
The Political Left cannot rationalize how they lost their grip on power and that the majority of the American People aren't with THEM.
So now, rather than undergoing some reflection on their beliefs and some self-examination to determine how to win them back, the Left has instead declared that THOSE people are now Public Enemy #1. The targets are clearly defined: Anyone recognizing and standing with President Trump must be destroyed!
The Leftists may have lost the hearts and minds of the majority of voters in his country but they haven't lost all their power. They still have the 24/7/265 Leftist Media and the Public University System that has been cranking out the Entitled Children of a Utopian Future both faithfully indoctrinated and ready to do battle for a Progressive America!
Clad in their black jeans, black hoodies, black masks and goggles and armed with pepper spray and incendiary devices, these "students" are ready to infiltrate and incinerate any University that does not accept their spiritual leaders views. They are the harassers, the psycho-operations front shock troops. There is money behind them and more than enough media propagandists to make excuses for them.
They are ready to shout you down, tear you down or burn you up. To the Left, joining "The Resistance" is code for going on the Offense.
Stoked by the Leftist Media outlets, Sanctuary City Mayors and radical Democratic Congressmen and women, there is nothing these Progressive operatives won't say, no reprehensible act they won't portray and no insane plot they won't trumpet. It permeates every waking moment for them.
A journalist working for Arabic News station Al Jazeera was heard to say after a CNN piece on Donald Trump, "Whoa, that's over the top, these guys are WAY too radical!".
The Political Left is stoked for a fight and willing to see how far they can push you til you just have to push back.
But will they like it when they get one? Or do they prefer the violence to the harsh reality that people just aren't into them much any more. It's the rejection that's most hurtful.
But the grand design, the Left's Plan "B" is to plan for destruction and chaos. Like all Jihadis and Anarchists, these people only want is to tear it all down. It doesn't matter who gets hurt as long as they succeed in destroying what other have worked for.
It's Jihad. It's what radicals do.
