Note: the below opinion piece is not aimed at decent, humble progressive liberals who accept the consequences of Hillary Clinton being the Democratic candidate. It is aimed at those on the left – a substantial number of people i would classify as the Hard Left – who wouldn’t know hypocrisy if it sat on their faces; who think the rules do not apply to their camp; who believe society should be at their beck and call; who believe everyone, especially women, owes them; who accept everything they ordinarily reject, when its expedient to do so; who despite their age are spoiled children who scream, cry and throw temper tantrums in the streets and on social media when they don’t get their way; who despite calling themselves “Democrats” are in reality supporters of a “One-Party-Democracy” in the tradition of communism. Who think another term for Media and Journalism is “lapdogs for the left” and are shocked when this doesn’t happen to be the case for once. Who think Russia has some kind of obligation to be nice to the candidate that is seeking war with them. Who blame others for doing – and being – exactly what they wanted them to be, if it ends up blowing in their faces.
As we now know the left is incapable, for the most part, of looking in the mirror and seeing any responsibility for Hillary Clinton’s loss with themselves. The blame is everywhere but in the own camp. It is with the opponent (of course, because democracy is not supposed to be about free choice), the FBI, the Media, white women, Russia, and Wikileaks.
It is all absolutely hilarious, because of the manner in which it proves the absolutely stunning sense of entitlement that the sore losers among the left truly have. Even though with this being the age of the millennial “prize for participation”, we really ought to have expected it.
The Mainstream Media of course, has been almost entirely in the tank for Hillary Clinton, Fox excepted (although even they went far enough to help the left in trying to take down Donald Trump). To blame the Media is nothing short of making the statement that they weren’t biased enough. They should have been on the Hillary Clinton campaign team wholesale, but still have small shards of the realization that they are news organizations with a responsibility to at least feign objectivity. The latter was obviously unacceptable to those on the left blaming the media.
So how about Russia? Blaming Russia is hilarious for two reasons: One, why should Russia NOT try to influence the elections in any way, when one of the candidates is openly looking for confrontation with them, while the other candidate is openly speaking of reconciliation? Are leftists seriously suggesting Russia should feel that these candidates are similar, and equally palatable to them and their national security? Not to mention the obvious: that the U.S. has actively involved itself in the politics and regime change of Ukraine, with the specific purpose of moving NATO closer to Russia’s border. Second, the way in which Russia got involved, according to the left, is by “using” Wikileaks – aka exposing the TRUTH – against the corrupt and unlikable harpy that was their candidate. How dare anyone, much less Russia, use the truth against their beloved candidate? It’s not like the U.S. ever does anything remotely similar to foreign heads of state, right?
Particularly rich in its sense of entitlement, its collectivism and identity politics, its demands for political slavery, is the left’s putting the blame on “white women.” White women, according to them, have “failed” Hillary Clinton, rather than the other way around. Hillary Clinton could have been the first female president, but women in majority refused to let the first female president be one that is corrupt, immoral, narcissistic and criminal to the gills. Let’s not even talk about the fact that Hillary wanted to force weapons into their arms and prepare them for serving the state in their unholy wars in the future, fighting and dying in them, by wanting to include women in the draft. Apparently this is supposed to be appealing to women. White women apparently voted against their own interests, because nobody knows better what’s good for women than the left. Feminism is not supposed to be about equal rights, independence, individuality… It is supposed to be about obeying a different master, and they refused to obey, thinking they had the right and the freedom to vote for whomever they damn well pleased. So to hell with them, the left says, because Hillary Clinton is not supposed to serve them by being a shining example; they are supposed to serve her, as the obedient female sheep to the leftist state that they are supposed to be. Identity politics at its finest.
Then there is the FBI of course, which apparently is tasked with investigation potential crimes, until they are not. They are supposed to fight all kinds of corruption, except when it is inconvenient. Sure, they should put corrupt bankers and other enemies of the proletariat behind bars, but don’t investigate anyone on Team Blue. The truth about Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal was revealed, but so what? Left-wing politicians are supposed to be above the law, so the FBI should mind its own business. The left could, of course, turn on Hillary Clinton for putting herself, and the rest of the left, into that position in the first place, but that would have required humility, self-examination, and a sense of responsibility. No such luck. How dare a law enforcement agency take a look at whether a crime should be investigated? Apparently because some self-serving hypocritical politicians have enacted some kind of “law” or “act” somewhere that puts campaigning politicians above the laws that count for the rest of us plebeians, the FBI’s doing its job was truly “unfair”. Because nothing beats fairness like a corrupt, criminal politician getting away with her behavior right before she becomes the most powerful person in the world.
Then we come to Wikileaks, that organization that ordinarily would have been embraced by progressives for all the wretched things it has exposed about war criminals, warmongers, police state enthusiasts and other supposed “enemies” of the progressive left. But Wikileaks has the temerity to be truly objective, shining a light on the corrupt and criminal left as eagerly as it does the right. Because they have a genuine interest in corruption where ever it is, and in war crimes, and other immoral behavior. Not just when a Republican does it, as is the case with part-time progressives who think a bomb is less deadly if dropped by a Democrat, or who think corruption start with the letter R. The left blames Wikileaks, apparently in combination with Russia and the FBI, for exposing the truth about Hillary Clinton. The left feels, not that it would have never happened if only their candidate was actually a decent, law abiding human being, but that her behavior should have been left unexposed because… well… just because she is a Democrat, and the other guy is a Republican.
And so it blames Wikileaks, and Russia, and the FBI of playing dirty. When what Wikileaks has done, is actually expose the fact that Hillary Clinton and her campaign team play dirty.
In the left’s version of reality, it is to play dirty tricks to expose that someone is playing dirty tricks.
Remember that thing about a deep sense of entitlement? About narcissism?
Hillary Clinton and her team have been exposed as basically getting almost the entire MSM in her pocket (as if they needed prodding), yet Wikileaks should have minded its own business and not do any investigative journalism, or at least have been “balanced” in doing so. Ha ha, you are so funny. Hillary Clinton and her team have been exposed to playing dirty tricks with the specific intention of drawing the nation’s attention to the extremist positions of Donald Trump, thinking this would turn everyone off. It blew up in their faces, but Wikileaks wasn’t supposed to reveal any of that. It wasn’t supposed to reveal that the left themselves are for a large part to blame for the rise of Donald Trump. These are “dirty tricks” by Wikileaks. Not the facts exposed by them. It is like accusing a referee of cheating, if he reveals that one of the players is cheating.
This is why there is no sense in talking with your opponent; no sense in debate. No sense in having an open mind and trying to convince them, or be open to them convincing you. You can’t negotiate about religion with someone who thinks he’s God. You can’t pretend that honesty, responsibility, and fairness are important in a contest if your opponent doesn’t know the meaning of the words.
With the above in mind, you cannot show understanding of the pain the left has for the loss, because they are incapable of ever understanding yours. They proved this by labeling any protest, any criticism, any skepticism, any opposition to their Holy Saint Barack Obama as inherently “racist”, “xenophobic”, and accusing them of being no more than angry white men.
You cannot pity the narcissist left that are now protesting, screaming, and rioting in the streets. Or the still name-calling left on social media. Or those on the left who are virtually openly calling for real violence or at least for their opponents and their opponents’ families and friends to die slow, painful deaths.
The only thing you can do, is to enjoy the sweet taste of their tears. Just as they have yours in the past, and will do again in the future.
