The Left has Paid the InsaneGeld and now will Never Get Rid of the Insane

There are a lot of peo­ple won­der­ing why key Democ­rats have been going along with insane pro­test­ers who claw at doors or scream at the sen­ate as they vote or harass peo­ple at din­ner ete etc etc.

An awful lot of folks at my side don’t get it. They pre­sume that they some­how don’t under­stand how this looks in swing states and dis­tricts that they need to win.

I would like to offer an alter­nate the­ory, I think they DO believe this is harm­ful but they feel they have no choice but to go along.

The left decided long ago that the vio­lent and insane left were use­ful, they encour­aged them as a counter to the Tea Party and even as they pro­gressed toward full social­ist, full vio­lent and full crazy they decided that the Trump vic­tory was so crit­i­cal that they couldn’t back away from them since they were the only young peo­ple in their party who had any actual energy and they demon­strated that energy in the Kavanaugh protests, expect­ing the GOP to stand down.

Alas for the left Don­ald Trump, Brett Kavanaugh and the rest decided not to be bul­lied and refused to give these peo­ple power over them, and by stand­ing up and show­ing courage they will inspire oth­ers in the GOP to have courage when faced by these peo­ple. This is bad for the left and Democrats.

But that’s not the worst of it

What’s worse for them is they have dis­cov­ered that once you give such peo­ple power and author­ity over you and your can­di­dates they will use that power to gain more power and they real­ize that if they cross these peo­ple who beat Rand Paul, tried to mur­der a GOP con­gres­sional can­di­date, attempted to drive folks like Sarah Sanders and Ted Cruz from pub­lic places, and of course tried to mur­der con­gress­man Steve Scalise they might turn on them.

Sim­ply put they’ve cre­ated a mon­ster and if the mon­ster can’t ter­ror­ize the armed GOP will­ing to stand up to them they will have to set­tle for intim­i­dat­ing the left that nursed them until they could grow strong.

His­tory could have informed the pro­fes­sional left that this would be the result of this fool­ish deci­sion but alas for them didn’t take the advice that Mr. Kipling gave in his poem on the sub­ject whose refrain remains true:

And that is called pay­ing the Dane-​geld;
But we’ve proved it again and again,
That if once you have paid him the Dane-​geld
You never get rid of the Dane.

I sus­pect it might be a gen­er­a­tion before the Demo­c­rat left recov­ers from this. They decided to pay the Insa­neGeld and now will never get rid of the Insane

There are a lot of people wondering why key Democrats have been going along with insane protesters who claw at doors or scream at the senate as they vote or harass people at dinner ete etc etc.

An awful lot of folks at my side don’t get it. They presume that they somehow don’t understand how this looks in swing states and districts that they need to win.

I would like to offer an alternate theory, I think they DO believe this is harmful but they feel they have no choice but to go along.

The left decided long ago that the violent and insane left were useful, they encouraged them as a counter to the Tea Party and even as they progressed toward full socialist, full violent and full crazy they decided that the Trump victory was so critical that they couldn’t back away from them since they were the only young people in their party who had any actual energy and they demonstrated that energy in the Kavanaugh protests, expecting the GOP to stand down.

Alas for the left Donald Trump, Brett Kavanaugh and the rest decided not to be bullied and refused to give these people power over them, and by standing up and showing courage they will inspire others in the GOP to have courage when faced by these people.  This is bad for the left and Democrats.

But that’s not the worst of it

What’s worse for them is they have discovered that once you give such people power and authority over you and your candidates they will use that power to gain more power and they realize that if they cross these people who beat Rand Paul, tried to murder a GOP congressional candidate, attempted to drive folks like Sarah Sanders and Ted Cruz from public places, and of course tried to murder congressman Steve Scalise they might turn on them.

Simply put they’ve created a monster and if the monster can’t terrorize the armed GOP willing to stand up to them they will have to settle for intimidating the left that nursed them until they could grow strong.

History could have informed the professional left that this would be the result of this foolish decision but alas for them didn’t take the advice that Mr. Kipling gave in his poem on the subject whose refrain remains true:

And that is called paying the Dane-geld;
But we’ve proved it again and again,
That if once you have paid him the Dane-geld
You never get rid of the Dane.

I suspect it might be a generation before the Democrat left recovers from this.  They decided to pay the InsaneGeld and now will never get rid of the Insane
