As the economy continues to improve and wins keep coming in foreign policy it seems clear that the left fear that Trump would succeed was justified and that drastic action was necessary.
Since the last election the left has gone all out to paint not just Donald Trump but members of his administration and voters as evil incarnate, a bunch of Nazis etc etc etc (This wasn’t always the case, there was a time when there were living Democrats who had actually fought real life Nazis and knew better but they have died out but I digress…) and concluded that any tactic was acceptable to bring Donald Trump down.
These tactics which resulted in the Red Hen Scandal, and yes it is a scandal that for political reasons a person can be denied service at a restaurant, is masking something more important. The fact that all of these tactics, no matter how dramatic are failing miserably and thus the next step has to be taken.
I submit and suggest that the left has decided now that Justice Kennedy is retiring that drastic action can turn people away from Trump.
In other words they want a Kent State, they need a violent confrontation which leaves people dead that Trump can be blamed for.
The problem of course is generating one.
You need two things to make it work People willing to shoot. Unfortunately for the left Trump, being as media savvy as he is, is not likely to provide them with one, so the target has to be an average Trump voter made to fear for his life.
But even more important than that you need a victim willing to put him or herself in a position to get killed.
That’s where you, dear sucker of the left ,come in.
You will be sold the idea of Trump supporters as Nazis, as people ready to commit all kinds of atrocities against mankind and the complete lack of such atrocities will not be considered evidence that it’s not coming while at the same time underselling the risk of convincing an armed person that you mean them or theirs harm. They will encourage you to push, and the push and the push and you won’t realize the danger until the target of the rage that your professors, your fellow protesters and those courageous lions of the keyboard encouraged you to confront decides their life is on the line and fires.
That is the moment that the professional left, the media and the Democrats in congress are dreaming of, the moment when you go from being a useful idiot to an even more useful Martyr to the cause.
The Professional left will hold up pictures of you in march after march calling you a martyr to the cause of freedom.
The media will cover the details of your short life nonstop, it will talk to your grieving friends, families and fellow travelers about what a great person you were on camera and pundits in every major newspaper will opine about the injustice that such a promising life was cut short.
The Democrat party will run ad after ad talking about you as proof that Trump voters in General and Donald Trump in particular are Nazis and the only way to stop them is to vote Democrat.
Of course you might have some objection to being used as cannon fodder for the financial and electoral power of those who don’t care one bit about you, but fortunately for you by this time you will be too busy being dead to register it.
Far be it from me to use my white male heterosexual privilege to tell those younger and far more woke than me what to do but I submit and suggest that it might be a good idea to recognize that you are being played by people who don’t care about you, your life or your future.
Plus even if you were deluded enough to think it’s a good idea to set yourself up to get shot to stop Trump, it won’t work, but that’s yet another post for another day.
