I'm Beginning to Fear that the Left is Going to Snap

I was gleefully watching as the results from the GA special election came in tonight. The pure misery on the faces of the CNN pundits when they called the race for Handel was grade A comedy!

As I watched the panel that was supposed to discuss the election, and what it meant, struggle to put together any sort of coherent message I began pitying these people. Not the news anchors or pundits (they go home to their gated communities and enjoy the high life), but your everyday democrats. The people who listen to and hang on every word that the left wing media machine spits out. They've been through the ringer in the last two years, and it's only been speeding up for them lately. I'm afraid they're going to lose their minds.

As human's, we can only take so much disappointment before we begin taking more extreme measures to stem the tide of disappointment. For some people those measures are simple measures like lowering expectations. But for others these measures manifest in hatred and vitriol. A quick perusal through the Reddit thread on /r/politics about the Georgia special election is disturbing. Some people deal more constructively with disappointment and try to remedy the cause, but that's becoming rare in politics now. And sadly there are others that completely lose their minds and start committing violence against the people they disagree with (see antifa, scalise shooting, blm riots, etc).

Here's a quick list of disappointments since trump decided to run for office:
First Trump couldn't break 20% in the primaries. he did.
Then Trump couldn't break 30% in the primaries. he did.
Then Trump couldn't break 40% in the primaries. he did.
Then the convention was going to be contested. it wasn't.
Then it was that he would be down twenty after the first debate. he wasn't
Then the access hollywood video had spoiled his chances. they didn't
Then hillary had a 90% chance of winning, going into election day. she didn't.
Then Trump had no path to 270. he got 306.
Then the EC delegates were going to keep trump out. they didn't.
Then congress was going to keep him out. they didn't.
Then Trump wouldn't make it to 100 days. he did.
Then Trump wouldn't make it to summer. he did.
Then comey was going to get trump for collusion. he didn't.
Then Trump wouldn't get a health care bill through the house. he did.
Then Gianforte wouldn't win montana. he did.
Then Trump wouldn't pull out of the paris deal. he did.
Then Trump was under investigation for russian collusion. he wasn't.
Then Handel was going to lose in Georgia. she didn't.

There are more, but these are the highlights, the media narratives that stuck and that many people were hanging their hats on, so to speak.

How much more can they handle? I mean, if I were in opposition to this, I would certainly be tired of losing. There is no light at the end of the tunnel either, and that's a scary thought. I mean, 2018 objectively looks like a pretty big hill to climb for the democrats to even retake the house, and you can forget the senate. They don't control enough legislatures and governorships to effectively defy the republican agenda. Where will they turn?

Sure, some will delude themselves into believing Trump won't make it through the summer or to christmas, or that the republicans will stop his agenda, or whatever, but you can only deny the objective reality for so long. The problem is, the longer you deny it, the harder it hits you when you stop. It's like a rubber band in that respect, you can keep pulling but it's only going to hurt more when it snaps back. So what are these people going to do when reality bites back and they realize that their power structure has been taken from them? I don't think it's going to be pretty.

They will radicalize, it's been a prediction of mine for several months. Dawning the apparel of ISIS wasn't a mistake.

the special ones will use home grown terror in the EU and here at home to ramp up the spying operations under the radar. It will be leaked on purpose eventually and everyone will accept it and the next phase will begin.

Part of the plan.

You think the every day democrat will radicalize? What do you mean by that? Not disagreeing, just not sure exactly what you're saying they'll do.

No but a small group will radicalize on the left, it's been in the making for a while and is the reason for the, "resistance" language introduced into the mainstream narrative. It's part of the monarch programming.

Doesn't monarch programming require physical abuse though?

Best thing I've done is watch the footage of the recent protests.
Left vs. Right--- They are both "social justice warriors", both "snowflakes"

It's a conundrum that has occurred mostly due to mankind's growing pains over the big Social Media. Everyone's got an equal platform to whine and bitch, and as we know- no one wastes a second to take their piece of that pie.

Anyone who's read an Huxley or Orwell book is rubbing their temples over this. It's called Divide and Conquer, and it's working beautifully right now. Everyone is distracted more than ever....

So what I suggest is, maybe this B.S hitting "critical mass" is a good thing.
Fact is, the people when placed in a group = a herd of mindless idiots who only want to know which team their supposed to be on, and be patted on the head for being a good participant.
All the while, wealthy scumbags are having free reign to do as they please.

At least one here has his eyes and brain for more than just to fill the empty spaces in the face and between the ears!

Have you considered the possibility the powers that be want you to believe this?

The narrative of the far right is one of constant fear and loathing.

Scared people are easier to control.

I hope that the DNC snaps and some sensible people with an eye towards working for the common good takes over.

Do NOT pity these people - that would be a huge mistake.
Far left radicals are violent communists - otherwise known as Progressives. They need to be trampled into the annals of history once and for all.

Exactly - there is still at least half of the Democrats in the house and Senate that hold the values of true Democrats. They need to take back their party.

I have, but that makes zero sense. Afterall, it's not the far right that's clamoring for government clampdowns.

Do you live in Georgia?

No?

Why do you care?


I'd worry if half my club decided to up and join another if I were you.
When half the republicans in a solid red district decide to vote for the democrat you have a big big problem.

Handel was behind Ossoff in the polls. Trump payed some attention . The DNC poured a little less than 25,000,000 on Ossoff. And put out all kinda lyin propaganda on Handel . Too bad for the DNC we here in Georgia dont cotton too well to liars

Half the Republicans voted for Democrat? Did you watch a different election in an alternate reality?

The Democrats said themselves this was a referendum on Trump. Seems Trump won then, by more than he did in November.

It's a massive loss for the failed Democrat party.

Here is a nice couple of tweets for you:

A bunch of sissy snowflakes snapping will probably have the same outcome as what happened in Jonestown. Most of them are just not built for fighting, they are built for receiving, (orders, beatings, entitlements, etc).

Pretty sure the powers to be were sure of Hillary's win,Obama had already set things in motion for socialism,they obviously invested heavily in her winning,now they are in damage control,trying in vain to return to a socialist take over,the school system has engineered these mindless kids,I think their demise was thinking that all Americans were as mindless and stupid as the liberal Democrats,the Dems even demeaned their own supporters,I mean how dumb can one be,say what you want about Trump,but at least we are headed in right direction,the ones that are against him can't explain why,they use words out of context,make up fake storys,can't fix stupid

I don't think anyone will worry about it. The Democrats poured almost $25M into this one race and lost. With that result they will probably abandon that tactic. Once the money stops flowing in, the Dem gains will be lost again. It's a money pit and the Dems need to refocus on areas that can be won, instead of trying to get a 'BIG WIN' in an impossible fight. The more they spend in areas like this, the less they have to spend in more viable races. It's a losing tactic.
