am a firm believer in the Golden Rule – do onto others as you would have done unto you – but I add a caveat to make it something Democrats really claim to love: fairness. You start by treating people well, but once they demonstrate they aren’t going to reciprocate, to hell with them and it’s game on. After four years of screaming Republicans are this kind of “ist” or that kind of “phobe,” that’s exactly how I think of left-winger’s newfound love of “unity.”
Joe Biden deserves exactly the same respect Democrats showed Donald Trump in 2016, which is exactly none. Not only because turnabout is the fairest of plays, but also because they are really awful people. When someone is awful, they deserve exactly what they give others.
Moreover, they haven’t stopped being awful.
I like to say “the only human beings worse than New England sports fans after they lose are New England sports fans after they win.” It’s funny because it’s true, or at least it used to be. Now you can replace “New England sports fans” with Democrats.
Ever since the media called the election, Democrats are acting like they won in a landslide. There’s a good argument for any politician pretending like they’ve received a mandate from the voters, otherwise they’d never get anything done. However, humility should play a role in anyone’s reaction to an event, and Democrats have demonstrated none.CARTOONS | LISA BENSONVIEW CARTOON
In fact, they’ve demonstrated the exact opposite – a complete disconnect from reality and sense of entitlement.
Everyone on the left, from the media to those elected, have been their worst selves since Saturday. Petty things such as “journalists” like ABC’s Jon Karl and Weeble Brian Stelter publicly turning off Twitter notifications for the president to wannabe Gestapo members compiling lists of “unacceptable” people whose only “crime” is disagreeing with them are now common.
One Washington Post stenographer for Democrats claimed, after having said he’s traveled the country the last four years seeing signs and flags with mean messages to liberals from Trump supporters, that “The gloatiest liberal takes pale before the meanness and mockery that got piled on libs since 2016.” Of course, only in a well-insulated media bubble does anyone not notice the difference between random Americans creating signs that upset liberal sensibilities and media figures/elected Democrats seeking retribution against those who’d done nothing but not support Democrats.
Since leftists don’t notice the difference, or care, there is no reason for any respect to be shown. Republicans, both elected and just random people, should show every elected Democrat and those pretending to be journalists the exact same level of deference and respect they’ve shown Donald Trump from the moment he rode down that escalator; the same amount they’ve shown everyone who’s voted for him, either time, since. Which, in case you haven’t noticed, is none.
From the start, the entire Democrat Industrial Complex, aided by squishy Republicans who’d bought into the liberal lie of Russian collusion, did everything in its power to thwart the president and a conservative agenda. They let their personal feeling override what the voters said and the interests of the country. No reason we shouldn’t do the same thing.
From the get-go, Donald Trump was called Hitler, with Chris Matthews describing his inaugural address as “Hitlarian,” and talk of impeachment started long before the vote was certified. Every obstruction option was exercised, a favor which should be returned.
There’s a lot of evidence suggesting Joe Biden and his family used his positions in government to make a lot of money and hid it. Investigations need to be launched in the Senate, allegations pressed in the House, and insisted upon in media appearances. Nothing should be off the table.
Democrats spent four years demonizing not only President Trump, but anyone who supported him. Who hasn’t been called a racist, sexist, xenophobe, transphobe, planet killer, monster, murderer, white supremacist, etc., in the last four years? Now they want “unity”? No way.
