UPDATE 2/2/22: How gratifying to watch Lefties caught in a circular firing squad: Whoopie with her dumb racial Holocaust distortion, Joe (or rather his puppeteer handlers) and his/their thing about Black & female being the only acceptable flavors this week.
UPDATE 12/10/21: Remarkable daily essayist Victor Davis Hanson asks the Trump-haters of both Parties celebrating the reversal of Trump’s legacy in record time, “You’ve got what you want. How’s that working out for you?”
To survive, BrandonWorld is being forced to rewind the tape back to TrumpWorld, 2016-2020. PINO (President In Name Only) is slowly, inexorably turning into DONALD J. Biden. His doddering malfeasance would be comical if the results weren’t so tragically destructive.
UPDATE 10/21/21: Watching Leftist/Progs/Never Trumpers consume one another does the heart good. Two abrasive lady loon Lefties, Elizabeth Warren and Margaret Atwood, find themselves at serious odds with ideological comrades. In Pocahontas’ case, it’s the Senate’s most irritating multi-millionaire grifter jumping on uber-Woke billionaires like Rocket Man Jeff Bezos for not spending HIS money the way SHE wants. That could also qualify her as a hypocrite, but being called out for unabashed amorality has never paused this frenzied fraud/liar’s pursuit of power. With Atwood, it’s a case of a radical Feminist heroine condemned by the local Gender police for her use of such sexist concepts as male/female, man/woman. “Why can’t we say ‘woman’ any more?” asks the incredulous refugee from high-paid Handmaid hell.
And then there’s the drama of RINO Meghan McCain learning that being a member of The View coven spiritually united by Trump Derangement Syndrome doesn’t necessarily make for happy solidarity in sisterhood.
UPDATE 10/1/21: It’s edifying to observe the evolution of those on the Left at serious odds with their own bad ideas and lies who, to one degree or the other, find themselves moving in a commonsensical direction toward the truth.
These “second thoughts” (as David Horowitz terms them) recall the faithful Communist intellectuals of the 1930s like Arthur Koestler and Andre Gide, disillusioned and transformed by “The God That Failed.” Read Orwell’s “Homage To Catalonia” for a similar tale of transformative disenchantment. In the turbulent odysseys of such recovered souls lies hope, exceptional and rare though these stories are.
UPDATE 7/17/21: There’s hope and major schadenfreude (satisfied gloating at certain misfortunes of others) watching the Woke Left consume and turn on one another. Ditto witnessing hateful ideas like CRT backfire on them.
UPDATE 7/17/21: One optimist opines that Big Tech will abandon its practice of censorship because EVERYONE (Left and Right, Bernie Sanders to Donald Trump) continues to resist and threatens major push back in the courts. Maybe the Zuckerbergs, Dorseys, YouTubers & Barney Googles can content themselves with earning mega-billions just providing virtual meeting places for the social butterfly consumers and incredible libraries for the intellectually curious.
UPDATE 6/24/21: The Leftist ownership of the media will come back to haunt both the politicians and the toadying MSM that mutually serve one another. Their shared Woke policy of canceling and criminalizing everything they don’t like has delegitimized almost every American institution. The good news is they have also set the stage for their own self-immolation. Let us hope sooner than later.
UPDATE 4/25/21: In the satisfying wake of the Chauvin verdict, BLM and assorted Wokester pests politely encourage diners at White-owned tacquerias in Manhattan to “get the f-k out of New York!” Very curious how the Woke Storm Troopers feel most emboldened to harass and terrorize the public in the bluest, most liberal places. And to think how sympathetic most of those diners are to The Cause! They’ll tell you so! Red states and cities with concealed carry permits would be somewhat less willing to suffer this abuse.
UPDATE 9/23/20: Leftists find it hard to imagine that the nefarious schemes they hatch will come back to haunt them, being held to their own standards for others. It’s just not fair. One of many variations of NIMBY(Not In My Back Yard).
UPDATE 9/20/20: Woke Black mayors and police chiefs prone to accommodating domestic terrorists like their BLM pals inexplicably find themselves accused of White Supremacy by these “mostly peaceful protestors.” Proud display of weakness does that to those Stuck On Stupid.
UPDATE 8/27/20: We’ll call the ladies BITA biddies and the gentlemen BITA bums, Biddybums the collective noun. And they are legion. One of the many new Biddybums is Trump-hating Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot who is a little miffed to finds all those “protestors” outside her front door. So she’s all for personal police protection to protect HER. Meanwhile, those cops and their leaders, advocates of law enforcement and not burning down cities for political power, are voting for Trump. Divine justice.
UPDATE 8/25/20: Stupid Leftwing moderates from Biden on down to the Never Trumpers have more than a bite in the butt awaiting them as guillotines and all they imply become graphic props for the Woke revolutionaries. Get the message, guys? Not likely.
UPDATE 8/20/20: BITA? CYA! Not by chance we’ll be seeing plenty of stories about prominent Wokesters rushing to one another’s defense when Cancel Culture circles back and bites its own. We’ll also see a lot of the newly BITA hung out to dry in the CYA panic that’s bound to ensue. Amusing to watch these world class hypocrites spin wildly to give an appearance of living up to their own standards.
ORIGINAL POST 8/16/20: History has more than a few comforting revelations amidst all the terrifying ones. The new rise of American Marxism and its takeover of the Democratic Party is not all good news for its enthusiasts even if (God forbid) it manages to subvert the upcoming election and put Obama Transformation fully back on track.
The positive news for those of us fearing the loss of our American way of life is that power lust has a way of consuming itself. Today’s comrade is tomorrow’s lunch for those in pursuit of absolute control, and all those well-intentioned moderates on the Left cozying up to their radical Woke allies in the Democratic Party will find themselves BITA (Bitten In The Ass). Cheering on the destruction of the American fabric always boomerangs to the shock and dismay of The Clueless. It was an alliance of the moderate Mensheviks with social reformers, those nice “communists with a human face” known as Democratic Socialists, whom Lenin overthrew, not the Czar. Those moderates, like today’s guilt-ridden, penitent White Privileged morons, simply did the dirty work and paved the way for the Bolsheviks’ totalitarian ends, and (surprise!) they were the first to face the dungeons and firing squads.
Perhaps the most refreshing and politically healthy thing about Trump’s presence is that he has managed to bring all those self-righteous foes of essential America (free markets, minimal government, strong borders, live and let live) out into the open…and into one another’s desperate clutches. Never Trumpers, meet Antifa! Shake hands with Sharia! Howdy Hi, Obamanites!
We are faced with one big totalitarian blob, and they are stuck to one another like Br’er Rabbit to the tar baby. Naturally, this folksy analogy like everything and everybody connected to conservatism will be taken as something racist, but the metaphor is apt.
The mania of the Trump Haters from all points on the political spectrum will come back to entrap and chomp them bigtime in their posterior parts as they devour one another. Meanwhile, the rest of us will be free to continue on down our various American paths. To be realistic, one can never expect the degenerate BITA in different form not to show up again down the road. They will never learn. Suicide is their perverse, warped idea of living. Such are the inconveniences of preserving one’s freedom.
