Democrats didn’t always have sad lives. Once it was cool to be a Democrat. For a brief period when I was a minor Democrat office-holder, civil rights and antiwar ideas made Democrats cool. Then came all the sixties riots in the cities and sensible, non-glamourous people realized being cool was a dead end.
Democrats in the media elite and universities were, and still are, insulated from the riots in the cities and the high inflation. They are still cool Democrats, if only in their own minds. Even as their party moves steadily toward Venezuelan socialism.
I just hope Republicans never get cool. That would be really bad. Can you imagine a media and university elite which thought the rich should be worshiped for being rich and the poor deserve to be poor? Instead, we have an elite which thinks they should be worshipped and anyone who doesn’t–such as Trump supporters–should be castigated, isolated, locked up whenever possible, and made fun of at every opportunity.
It must be sad to live always looking down on regular hard-working, flag-waving Americans. Since they have no sincere beliefs, the elite look down on anyone who does believe–especially Christians. Yet they have adopted the worst attitudes of the Puritans. Godless, believing-in-nothing Democrats have become self-righteous scolds. Anyone who doesn’t get a vax or doesn’t wear a mask, should lose their job and all right to normal activities.
The good thing is that they will not hesitate to contradict themselves in the future. Wearing blackface was bad until their Governors and other leaders did it, then its OK. Since they have no enduring beliefs, they will reverse their positions on any and everything. So try to ignore their castigation, they will reverse themselves soon.
It’s glaring how they can be so anti-police until they want to lock up people who don’t agree with them. Before Jan. 6, they were all “defund the police”. After Jan. 6, the Democrats declared the Capitol Police heroes as a way to attack the Trump supporters.
Most galling is when Democrats call others insurrectionists or traitors, when they admit they feel apprehension when they see an American flag. Many of them, and I was once one, have been insurrectionists their whole lives and continue to preach the evils of anything the US does–except that now that they are in power, what the US government is doing is good because it is destroying the old America.
They seem convinced average Americans are stupid fools capable of all sorts of evil. They dwell on the CIA overthrowing democrat governments and US soldiers killing civilians and cops killing unarmed black men and invent a connection with “white supremacy.” Meanwhile supporting today’s woke CIA and Chief of Staff undermining a sitting President, drone strikes killing civilians, hundreds of thousands of covid positive people swarming across the border, and the eliminating bail for criminals who attack low income folks
They are so sad I don’t even like thinking about them. But thinking about Republicans can be even sadder.
I’d rather dwell on love joy, peace and the other fruits of the Spirit. I’d rather live way out in the country where the Clinton, Bush II, Obama, Trump and Biden years can be pretty safely ignored as the winter tomatoes set fruit and the basil spreads seed for next year.
