The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg

Progressives have the memory of mayflies. They're all like:

Progs: OK, we're going to have a new rule that says X.

Cons: Uh, it wasn't that long ago that you said you wanted a rule that said the exact opposite.

Progs: ( *pause* )

Progs: No, we didn't.

Cons: Yes, you did. See right here: ( *proffers indisputable evidence* )

Progs: ( *pause* )

Progs: But this situation is totally different.

Cons: You just want a different rule because it's to your advantage.

Progs: ( *pause* )

Progs: You're a white supremacist.


Of course, sudden and opportunistic rule changes are just one aspect of progressives' miniscule attention span. We also get sudden and opportunistic rewrites of history like this:

So national politics was all skittles and rainbow unicorn farts before Trump. Right.

I'm old enough to remember when George Bush was called Hitler by the left

I'm old enough to remember when Dick Cheney was called Hitler by the left (well, Himmler, but that's pretty much the same thing)

I'm old enough to remember when Mitt Romney (Milquetoast Mitt!) was called Hitler by the left

I'm old enough to remember when John McCain was called Hitler by the left

I'm old enough to remember when Sarah Palin was called Hitlerby the left.

Heck, even Bob Freaking Dole was called Hitler by the left. The internet isn't turning up any clever pics or memes, but I'm old enough to remember.

And of course, I'm old enough to remember when Richard Nixon was called Hitler by the left.

(Good retrospective of this phenomenon here.)

So this looks like it's going to turn into a 2020 campaign theme for the Democrats. That is, everything was great until the divisive Trump came along and dragged us all down to hell, we can go back to the status quo ante by getting rid of Trump. And this lame tweet was in response to another lame tweet by fake conservative uber-grifter Bill Kristol, so you know the NeverTrumpers are going to be solidly behind this, too.

But the reason it's so noisy is that we finally have a leader on our side who actually fights. And part of being a good fighter is knowing exactly who and what the enemy is and not being afraid to call them out publicly. And this includes refusing to go along with the pretense that the media is just sitting there on the sidelines refereeing the game when they're actually blocking and tackling for the other side.

The point is, the howling SJW mobs didn't start with Trump. They just got a lot louder.

And when they call for peace, peace, when there is no peace, the meaning of peace is actually different for each side. For their side, it'll be the peace of victory, for us, it's the peace of servitude.




Kristol: "Humungus Is A Reasonable Man..."



America, F* Yeah!

Friday's Who Dis: Lisa Gaye retired from acting in 1970 to raise her daughter, but she was in the 1957 musical comedy 10000 Bedrooms, whose big star was Deabn Martin. Character actor Dewey Martin was also along for the ride.
