It is mostly an impression, but I can’t shake the belief that the Congressional shooter somehow believed he’d be hailed as a hero by those he held in high political esteem.  After all, didn’t he do what was called for – you know, “fight in the streets”?  “Get in their faces?”  “Punch back twice as hard?”

I began to form this impression with Kathy Griffin’s antics.  She was genuinely surprised by the negative reaction on the left.  She honestly didn’t believe, with this president, that there was a line much less a line you do not cross.

The irony impaired left has a lot for which it must answer.  Do you remember all of this?

“(Shock) spiked down the nation’s spinal column last night and today when the Republican nominee threatened that this little election thing you got there, this little democratic process you’ve got here, it’s nice, it’s fine, but he doesn’t necessarily plan on abiding by its decision when it comes to the presidency.” — Rachel Maddow, Oct. 20, 2016

“Trump’s answer on accepting the outcome of the vote is the most disgraceful statement by a presidential candidate in 160 years.” — Bret Stephens, then-deputy editorial page editor at The Wall Street Journal

“I guess we’re all going to have to wait until Nov. 9 to find out if we still have a country — if Donald Trump is in the mood for a peaceful transfer of power. Or if he’s going to wipe his fat a– with the Constitution.” — CBS’s Stephen Colbert, Oct. 19, 2016

“It’s unprecedented for a nominee of a major party to themselves signal that they would not accept — you know, respect the results of an election. We’ve never had that happen before. … This really presents a potentially difficult problem for governing …” — MSNBC’S Joy Reid, Oct. 22, 2016

“This is very dangerous stuff … would seriously impair our functioning as a democracy. … This is about as serious as it gets in the United States.” — CNN’s Peter Beinart, Oct. 20, 2016

“Obviously, it’s despicable for him to pretend that there’s any chance that he would not accept the results of this election; it would be — in 240 years you’ve never had anybody do it. …” — CNN’s Van Jones, Oct. 20, 2016

Anyone – who is it that has refused to accept the outcome of a presidential election?  Who has formed a “resistance”.  What group has all but countenanced violence in the street as their answer to the election?

The left.  The left has acted as if the world has ended and are completely blind to what they are involved in doing (precisely what they denounced candidate Trump for even considering).

You need to do a little Googling.  Here’s a hint at what is going on:

The problem is not necessarily a partisan one, Bongino explained, but a philosophical one. The key thing to understand, he says, is “critical theory” – a strain of philosophy which “has infected the far-Left portion of the Democrat Party … ”

What this theory does, Bongino explained, is convince people that political discourse is not one about good and bad ideas, but about good and bad people, which has led to some people on the far-Left embracing and normalizing violence and intimidation against one’s political opponents.

“It teaches their followers … this idea that this is not a battle of political ideas, it’s a battle of good and bad people,” Bongino explained. “And the bad people are the Republicans and they need to be taken out.”

We’ve spoken many times before how politics has become like a religion of sorts.  Critical theory provides the “good” and “evil” necessary for the secular religion to focus upon.  It’s no longer about ideas.  It’s about evil  And there is nothing more evil that someone who disagrees with your foundational ideas.
