The Morning Rant

"If anything is obvious to me from these Democrat debates, where we get to see not one, not two, but 20 Democrats who think they should be president making their pitch to the American people on a national stage, it's that progressivism is a death cult. I'm not exaggerating for effect. At the end of every progressive policy or goal, there is death, death, and more death. Progressivism has come so that we may have death, and that more abundantly. I think it's demonic, but I think even a non-religious person can see that the way of the Left always ends in death. Always. It's the logical conclusion of every single progressive ideal.

"And, of course, they want us dead. Which is why they hate us in general, and Donald Trump in particular. Because we're standing in the way of their 'progress.' And not only is Trump standing in their way, he's mooning them, too.

"They think Trump is unhinged, but as far as I'm concerned, he isn't unhinged enough. His cannon is insufficiently loose. What we really need is a drunken ape in the White House armed with an aluminum baseball bat, a bullhorn and a flamethrower. That's the only solution at this point. But Trump is as close as we're going to get, so he'll have to do. For now. Progressives are too blind to realize that it really is in their best interest to make their peace with Trump (and by extension, us), because if they succeed in getting rid of him and stifling the sentiments of an unwilling populace, the next guy they're going to get is going to be even worse."
