The Extreme Always Eats It's Own

Extremists, be they on the "left", or be they on the "right", eventually always turn into political cannibalists.

Their own ilk becomes "too toxic" and they eat them, throw'em under the bus, discard them with the trash like lump of useless biological cells in a waste dumpster by the curb, or whatever euphemistic analogy that can be applied to letting "allies" test the waters of how far a society can be pulled; and then doing away with that person who, for now, pulled that Overton Window just a bit too far. A time when the exteme useless idiots devour other extreme useless idiots. It's a signpost that happens every time.

This time it's the governor of an original colony; tomorrow maybe a speaker that refuses compromise on border funding, or a senator too aligned with a too vociferous blowhard of a President.

Either way, it's amazing how some signposts never change. The Extreme, when testing what could be a popular extreme position, get eaten by those they considered "on their side"; and old dirt, dirt that voters already had been informed of before choosing representation, have that dirt used as the blackmail held right over them and thusly poured on them like barbecue sauce on a slab of pork simmering on a Weber, built in middle America, grill.

Among those calling for his resignation were presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), who tweeted, "Leaders are called to a higher standard, and the stain of racism should have no place in the halls of government."


I suspect that the cannibalism has just begun. I'm just a guy on the internet, but mark these words, leadership whithin the current paradigm is about to go through throngs of "gone too far" and "haven't gone far enough".

One way one the "left", and the other way on the "right".

I guess I'm just expecting a really hot summer this year.

The Generation Gap is designed, weaponized, and real. By 2020 the whole world, from MAGA and Brexit, Taiwan and Sydney, will not deny that Gap.

But as I wrote earlier, I'm just a guy on the internet, a guy that still believes in Change that Makes America a Beacon of Hope Again.

Nothing but love ya'll. Nothing but love.

And the non-extreme remain slaves to their government.

Government has been Extremely corrupt for some time now.

Perhaps it takes the rise of a radical before the realization of a revolution is needed.

I have noticed that extremists do throw their followers under the bus a lot. It is not limited to politics, usually you will find the head instigator of a protest sitting on the sidelines and calling the shots. They consider themselves more valuable than others and will sacrifice their followers or members of their group in a heartbeat. They are not to be trusted, they are fair weather friends most times. Conservative extremists do seem to be more apt not to leave their own behind than liberals. But still they will not come out and take the blame, they tend to just supply money to bail them out.

I guess everyone to the right of an extreme leftist is an enemy. No surprise there. The same goes for the right, just not as extreme.

I contend its the non extremes,ie those in the middle, that are not the slaves........the extremes are the ones being played to the fullest extent, because its those of us in the middle that refuse to go off the cliff and can see whats happening.....were not so polarized as to shackled by political discourse

Do you not remember during the Tea Party years that every Republican not declaring Obama an islamo-fascist was just another RINO?

With extremists it's either fall-in-line or fall out of favor. It doesn't really matter where on the political map they are.

This is why I argue that the path forward for the left is so blatantly obvious to anyone not indoctrinated into their ideological cult. The way to beat Trump in 2020 and get nearly everything they are hoping for is to run a moderate against Trump. This is counter-intuitive to the modern leftist as they only see things as black and white and tit-for-tat. However a moderate would crush Trump in a landslide. If you try to match the perceived extremism of Trump with your own brand of extremism then you will face the same swift backlash in the following mid-terms that slapped Trump across his big, orange silly face.

If you sneak in a moderate, win handily and pacify your opposition, then you can run even more of your far left whackadoodles in the congress which is where those types belong in the first place -- not the presidency. A president needs to be moderate, pragmatic, level-headed and even-keeled. Even with a moderate, left-leaning presidency you can still pass most of what you want if you continue to stack the legislature with far left progressives.

I mean, just think about it. You literally just witnessed one lightning rod of an individual tear apart and utterly decimate a political party in 2016 -- and your bright idea is to follow suit and execute that same playbook? Brilliant. Just brilliant.

I don't know why I am bothering to even explain this to them since I essentially would love to see them fail. However, I am even more weary of the constant back and forth of two extremes that will certainly have no end other than some form of mass murder from one side or the other. If your idea of victory is the mass extermination of your perceived enemy then you're an evil piece of human trash no matter what side of the political spectrum you call home.

I dont remember that, mostly because this statement is bs spread by the left.......no serious teaparty member actually believed this, just the same as they didnt give any credence to the birther thing......that was koolaid spread by the left.....

a reply to: sooth

youre right, they wont take this advice..........

its clear the answer to them is to go as far to the extreme left as they can.........

what they fail to see is that things have become so polarized left and right, that there are more moderates in the middle than there have ever been, both from the left and the right......

The smart play would be to do as you suggested, but, I dont see that happening, I see them running someone farther left than Bernie, and extremely hard lined in an effort to lash out........but that time came and went , thats how we got Trump....

It will not work the same again for either side, though trump is brash and a loud mouth, hes actually more moderate than some of the more conservative of the people he ran against....

At any rate....the left is pushing their base further and further out, with catering to the new extreme voter base........and thats not the heartbeat of America, the same as the extreme right isnt either

Out with the old, if Kamala Harris is not a hypocrite, she must now eat Biden as well.



"I think the concept of busing," Biden said in the interview, "that we are going to integrate people so that they all have the same access and they learn to grow up with one another and all the rest, is a rejection of the whole movement of black pride."


www.theblaze.com...

From the OP regarding old comments from the Governor of VA Kamala Harris said:


Among those calling for his resignation were presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), who tweeted, "Leaders are called to a higher standard, and the stain of racism should have no place in the halls of government."


Biden is stained just the same. Think Kamala will eat him too and demand Democrats not consider him in the primaries?

Some Democrats of today have forgotten it was Democrats of yesterday fighting for segregation; and Vice President Biden is being marinated in time for tomorrow's democrat breakfast. The new generation, the openly socialist generation, is putting on a bib and sharpening it's forks.

Being an extremist at either end of the scale on *any* topic is almost always a really bad idea, unless you live alone in the wilderness and don't associate with other humans.

Extremists often make bold moves, and over time they make as many bad moves as good ones. This kind of behavior is what often requires them to chew on each other in order to stay alive.

Sometimes it's totally accidental: froth at the mouth too much and it gets in your eyes, and next thing you know, you've bitten the head off someone in your own camp. No different than sharks in a feeding frenzy.

Good riddance, I say.

Yes. Maybe the movement, as a whole, was not but a large faction within the movement was very extremist or condoned extremist rhetoric at the time, e.g. "the tree of liberty must be watered with the blood of tyrants"

The tension in the Democratic party between far left progressives and the establishment exploded into an online firestorm after a liberal actress mocked Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) during an introduction for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.)


The radicals keep devouring each other.

Good.
