“You loathe me, you really, really loathe me”

by Tom Quiner

How satisfying!

Despite a high profile attempt to launch a coup, Hillary Clinton failed in her attempt to persuade Electoral College Republican electors to renege on Donald Trump.

In all,  two defected from Trump. Amazingly, though, five defected from Hillary.

Serves her right.

Have you noticed something about modern American liberalism? They can accomplish very little by the democratic process.

They rely on judges to impose things like human abortion and so-called same-sex marriage even when the public doesn’t want it, and has voted against it.

They rely on a renegade president to club us over the head and accept transexuals into bathrooms with our little daughters and sons; and to make us pay for abortifacients and contraception when our religion tells us it’s a mortal sin.

And when their Congressional representatives of both parties oppose expensive and futile green energy legislation, their man in the White House simply imposes it.

They label speech they don’t like as hate speech.

When they hear dissenting ideas, they shout down the speakers, and when that fails, they stage a cry in.

They develop campus speech and thought codes and roll it out to the general public in the guise of political correctness.

When they stage public rallies like Occupy Wall Street, they leave behind of mountain of filth and destruction.

Have they ever stopped to analyze why no one likes them?

When they gain control of all the levers of power in government, as they did in 2009 and 2010, they go wild with Big Government schemes that never, ever work. And when the middle class beseeches liberals controlling Big Government to throw them a lifeline, all they get is a tax bill and more regulations.

When Hillary Clinton got beat in the election, she and her churlish chums blamed FBI Director, James Comey. Then they moved onto blaming the Electoral College. Next, the blame was placed on Vladimir Putin for releasing the emails Hillary tried to hide from us, even though there is no proof of Mr. Putin’s involvement.

I’m not positive, but I thought I heard someone blame her political demise on climate change and sun spots. They must place blame, always, because their liberal agenda doesn’t work and it is morally rotten.

Have they ever stopped to analyze why no one likes them?

Under Barack Obama, a man who for seven years blamed the previous occupant in the White House for every conceivable ill, Democrats have experienced a shocking loss of power in Congress, governorships, and state houses, losing nearly a thousand legislative seats at the state level since 2010.

I acknowledge that Republicans aren’t going to win any popularity contests. But they’re winning elections at every level going on six years now.

It’s time for Democrats to look themselves in the mirror and stop blaming everyone but themselves for their precipitous fall from power.

I can’t but help but think of that classic Sally Field acceptance speech when she won an Academy Award. Democrats face a different situation. It’s time to acknowledge that voters loathe them, they really, really loathe them.

    I’m reminded of a comedy w/ Jim Carey (I think). He is giving this acceptance speech while in a psych ward. Libbers just don’t know how deluded and crazy they are.

      The two sides don’t even speak the same language.

        You have to give them some slack. ANY language one speaks will be hard to communicate in, when speaking out both sides of one’s mouth…and maybe someplace else once in a while.
