If you really want to understand why our friends on the left are going as violently mad as they are you can’t do better than what Larry Schweikart found in the latest 538 poll

Do you see what those numbers say? Larry does.

Particularly these numbers on “hispanics”

(incidentally “Hispanics” is in quotes because it refers to the mythical land of “Hispanica” as referenced in this post about the Massachusetts Senate Special election of a few years ago).

And remember these number are BEFORE Democrats publicly decided segregation at restaurants was a good thing

To me this confirmed what old friend Kurt Schlichter wrote Monday concerning their options:

That leaves them only violence. We’ve already seen it, and you can sense that it’s only a matter of time before the liberals openly embrace it. They have set the conditions for it. They have dehumanized the opposition, that is, us. Their lesser tactics aren’t working. The lies no longer resonate because we Normals are woke – the polls indicate that most Americans greeted the whole kids in cages fraud with a collective shrug. Criminals separated from their kids? Doesn’t that happen every day? It would sure happen to us if we broke the law, since we aren’t the Democrats’ Great Foreign Hope for a future electorate that is pliable and obedient.

Intimidation isn’t working. It makes the libs quiver with joy, but it just makes us mad. Getting your opponent riled up is a poor strategy, especially at the ballot box. Mad people tend to retaliate. November is coming, and we all fully understand that every middle finger selfie, every vicious tweet, every assault on a conservative diner, is an attack on us.

And while a George Will, anxious to be able to enjoy fine dining without incidents from angry leftists, will play along with this stuff, most Trump voters who realize the “new rules” target them where they live will not.

The irony in all of this is if the left had not gone mad and had decided to fight the President on the legislative field where he is the least experienced rather than in the media field where is the strongest they might have made progress against him, but they quickly discovered you could get more clicks, higher rating and raise more money by encouraging the mob so they did.

This isn’t working out too well because just as the right thing is usually the smart thing the wrong thing: Working people into a frenzy for short term profit, is turning out to be the dumb thing.

Attacking the survivor of a political assassination attempt as a “Nazi puke” for daring to suggest that civility and respect are the better option does not win over GOP and independent voters needed to win elections and as the President has indicated suggesting pols you dislike should be visited by mobs might end poorly, particularly if your political opponents are well armed.

But alas for the left they’ve whipped up their own people so badly that when even Nancy Pelosi mildly suggests that chasing people out of restaurants and public spaces she gets pummeled by her own side and God forbid that you suggest it’s a dumb move politically like Axelrod did. Out of the Woke Arms they must go!

In the end somebody is going to end up killed and I suspect that person is not going to be a person of the right but one of the left, but I also suspect they consider that a feature rather than a bug, but that’s tomorrow’s post.
