Leftists have always used cries of bigotry and oppression to further their political goals.
The election of Donald Trump has turned these cries up to an ear-splitting fever pitch.
The #Resistance ravenously searches for any signs of offense to stoke their flames of discontent. These actions have led conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh to make an astute observation.
Limbaugh claims the Democrats have become the largest hate group in America.
Tuesday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh pointed out the mood of the Democratic Party, which he described as resentful and unhappy, and noted liberal comedians are “consumed by hatred.”
Partial transcript as follows (courtesy of RushLimbaugh.com):
Let me tell you something, folks. There is an inescapable observation and conclusion, and it is this.
You have to look very hard — and you have to spend a long time looking — to find a genuinely happy or content left-wing political person. Whether they’re an activist or not. If they’re engaged in any way, shape, manner, or form of politics, they’re not happy, no matter what. When they elected Obama, they got angrier. They got more enraged. After every success they have, nothing is ever enough. No amount [of] success ever makes them happy.
Every success they have seems to tell them how little they’ve actually done and how much more there is and how deeply resentful of that they are. The bottom line is: You just don’t encounter happy, laughing liberals. Even their comedians are consumed by hatred. The Democrat Party’s become the largest hate group in this country. Even their comedians are angry and enraged, and that suffices as comedy. I think it’s one of the reasons why left-wing comics have become primary sources of news for other left-wing liberals.
So there’s never any happiness, there never is any contentment. You don’t see any real laughter. You just see a constant level of rage — and I’m telling you, it isn’t healthy. Talk about sustainable? That cannot be sustained. A healthy mind and heart cannot be sustained by the degree of rage and hatred that we see in the American left today. You have to ask: Why don’t their successes make them happy? Look at what they’ve done in the area of marriage. They’ve totally upended it.
They have succeeded in not just redefining a word that has stood for however many number of years — tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions of years — that humans have been plodding and walking the earth. And even after they succeed with this, they get angry. They don’t ever seem satisfied. It’s the most amazing thing. And we’re all paying the price for it, this constant rage, this constant anger. They lose elections, and it is taken as one of the most outrageous things that could happen.
Limbaugh is entirely correct. Leftists deem anything not in lockstep with their views as an affront to humankind.
Harvard professor Steven Pinker calls this phenomenon the “left pole.” Any views outside of the left pole are sullied as “right wing” and worthy of demonization.
This is why leftists feel entirely justified in saying Steve Scalise deserved to be shot.
It’s why a college professor said whites should “f***ing die.”
It’s why students at a left-wing college labeled a deeply progressive professor as a “right-winger” when he disagreed with their ugly brand of identity politics.
It’s why violence on campuses directed toward speakers, exclusively coming from the left, has become normalized.
This is sadly the logical conclusion to labeling your political opponents as evil Nazis.
And their losses in the 2010, 2014 and 2016 elections suggests they can’t–their final recourse is to pick up a brick.
Leftists like to use slogans such as “Love trumps hate” to virtue-signal their tolerance and empathy, but it’s false.
They’re the most intolerant group in America, and their actions bear it out.
