Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Hook, line, sinker

Crazy. Like a fox.

While some continue to be distracted by style and skip substance with Trump, and others, like certain peacetime conservatives at legacy publications, become apologists for the anti-Semitic Ilhan Omar, many others still seem to be missing the entire point. However inartful Trump’s comments might be, it really does turn the questions around on them.

Why are they here? Of all the 195 countries in the world, why did you, Ilhan Omar, come here? And why are you proposing ideas that are deeply un-American, from coercive socialism to the loss of national sovereignty through open borders? Why are you and you gal pals proposing ideas that generations of Americans since our founding have rejected? What ideas on any level are you proposing that have anything to do with our constitutional republic or its perpetuation?

The answer, of course, is that none of Omar’s or her three colleagues’ ideas have anything to do with our traditions regarding the role of government. In fact, those who consistently propose ideas that are un-American, as they do, are rightly called un-American.

Every time Trump goads Democrats or the liberal media—but I repeat myself—they take the bait. Every. Single. Time. You would think at some point, after two-and-a-half years of this, Democrats would realize they’ve let Trump become their Pied Piper; he calls the tune and they dance to it.

But they don’t. What he has done this time is to put the four freshmen communists (let’s drop the “socialist” moniker and call them what they are) front and center. To “own Trump,” and because of intersectionality and the far left beliefs that have captured many of the Democratic activists and small-dollar donors, Democrats mindlessly have come to the defense of these women.

But to own Trump, Democrats also have to own everything these women stand for, including their refusal to disavow Antifa and al-Qaeda. What are the repercussions of this? Well, it allows Trump to do exactly what he’s wanted to: make 2020 a referendum on the competing worldviews of coercive socialism versus a free market, capitalistic approach, but also to show how un-American the Left truly is.

Most of the time, Ocasio-Cortez and Omar are walking in-kind contributions to the Trump re-election effort. Trump’s goal has been to make all of this the framework of the narrative, and then to harden the narrative. He threw out the hook and bait, the Democrats bit, and now he’s setting the hook.

He’s succeeding thanks to the mindlessness of Trump Derangement Syndrome but also because of the shallow, short term thinking and behavior of the Democrats. The Democrats have chosen or, perhaps one could argue, were actually compelled by the grassroots, to embrace the communist vipers. Problem is these movements, as history shows us with the Jacobins of the French Revolution, become all consuming fires, many times annihilating those who started the conflagration. Just ask Robspierre.

Only one way left for them to tamp down the blaze. Guess what it is.

Many prominent liberals have ripped into Democratic candidates for sponsoring ideas too far from mainstream America. Their advice? Stop being so honest and start lying.

START lying? You implying they ever STOPPED? On the other hand, it’s kinda dispositive, I suppose, when a sudden burst of honesty is so radically out of character for you that it very nearly destroys your entire criminal syndicate masquerading as a political party. Tells the whole story all by itself, that does.
