Given the liberal left meltdown since the rousing Republican November 8th victories, one wonders just what does it take to support or be a member of today’s Democrat Party? We’re going to keep it simple by suggesting just two basic qualities. One, the need to have no memory. Two, they must have no shame.
Here’s just a short list of substantive events that apparently have gone missing from the consciousness of millions of Dems:
Remember their breathless outrage, endlessly “voiced” by Hillary Clinton, as she spewed her utter disgust over Donald Trump saying he’d take a wait and see approach to the election before accepting the results? They apparently don’t.
How about the claim that they’d be satisfied if recounts were held in the three states Hill was supposed to, according to polling, have won handily? OK. Wisconsin wound up with more votes for The Donald. In Pennsylvania, a state Trump won by over 40,000 votes, a U.S. District Judge declared the effort “borders on the irrational” and stopped the count. Michigan was halted, soon after it was discovered voting improprieties favored Clinton.
Then there’s the Obama administration’s late November assurance to the New York Times that despite Russian attempts to undermine the presidential election it had concluded the results “accurately reflect the will of the American people.” They continued, “…..we believe our elections were free and fair from a cybersecurity perspective.” Well that outpouring of info, so meaningful less than 1 month ago, is now officially purged from the left’s porous little minds.
This conveniently pathetic inability to recall, in almost no time, things once considered quite profound, has led Democrats to behave shamelessly in a number of ways:
Party “leaders” were basically mum when post election “demonstrations” became riotous. Obama, Clinton, Pelosi, and others took a pass, prattling on about “free speech” while, in a number of cities, police were attacked, traffic blocked, windows shattered, cars vandalized, and properties set ablaze
Now, many of the same people who couldn’t understand the 1st Amendment not only banned “shouting fire in a crowded theatre” but would prohibit starting fires in public places, want to lecture us on the “Framers” intentions regarding the role of electors. This gaggle can’t properly interpret one of the most basic tenants of the Constitution but somehow can read the minds of some of our most intuitive and brilliant “Founding Fathers”.
And this self serving, arrogant, ignorance has led to perhaps the most unprincipled act of all; both the public and private intimidation of fellow citizens, who’ve simply accepted the additional civic responsibility of serving as electors. Republicans who hold those positions “are being harassed with a barrage of emails, phone calls and letters-and even death threats”. Those being menaced range in age from seniors to college students. One collegiate reported being warned about getting a bullet in the back of his mouth, The New York Post reported. And from Dems we hear…..crickets. Nice.
So let the call go out as they attempt to rebuild their shattered, increasingly far left, radical, party.
