If you are defined by your identity, perceived grievance, and pre-packaged victimhood……….guess what? Nobody cares.
After the last decade of identity politics, blatant racist double-standards, and federally-sponsored fake news and outrage, the progressive left has finally “jumped the shark”. To be honest progressives, it’s not that people agree with you, or value your arguments……it’s that you have screwed things up in this country so badly, in such a short time, that the rest of us consider your “issues” to be petty and stupid compared to 20 trillion in debt, a porous border, crumbling infrastructure, failing schools, and invading hordes from the southern border and Syria.
Add to the equation that most American citizens bend over backwards to accommodate the ridiculous assertions of progressives, smiling and saying “excuse me”,and letting you act the fool on campus and in the workplace. Sitting quietly……… while those that they have paid to entertain them, and those that they work with, mock and insult them……all without fear of repercussion or consequence.
The problem is, leftist progressives live in a constant state of fake outrage. It’s never enough. You want abortions and gay marriage? No problem, you got ’em. Oh wait…..now you want abortions paid for with tax dollars up until the day of birth, and businesses that won’t cater your fabulous gay wedding must be destroyed. I see.
You want to pass unconstitutional, 3800 page, you-must-buy-this-or-else government healthcare that we have to “pass…before we can read”, without a single opposition party vote? High-five! You did it! Hold on buddy……………..it’s broken, like everything else you touch, and it has to be fixed. “No!! You must make it right!”, you say…….”it’s your fault!”. I understand.
I will say this: I’m actually glad that the progressive left has so overplayed their hand in the last decade. Why? Because now, no one cares. We’ve seen riots, protests, fake news, Hillary’s hilarious emails, fake “hate-crimes”, unending lies, and alleged outrage over the “ethical lapses” of others from the very inventors of the concept. We’ve seen the “leaders” in the House and Senate, and all of government, exposed as incompetents and selfish freaks………..like vampires in a horror movie, feeding off of the rest of us for decades, drunk on the blood of the innocent. We’ve seen college students yelling through megaphones about the cost of their Ethnic Studies degrees, and the injustice of anyone who disagrees with them……..with the result being nap times, baby-play, and “safe spaces”.
So……..don’t go to the inauguration, go on CNN, march in a circle…scream at the top of your lungs about “impeachment” and “illegitimacy”…………..because guess what?
