Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Ask a silly question

Get an honest answer.

When did it become ­acceptable for politicians, and their media helpers, to target private citizens for their ­political opinions?

When those opinions diverged even slightly from Democrat-Socialist dogma, of course.

In the wake of the mass shooting in El Paso, Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) released the names of a few dozen San Antonio residents who had donated to President Trump’s re-election campaign. (Castro is chairman of the presidential campaign of his twin brother, Julián.)

Castro was apparently unconcerned by the prospect that these people — retirees and small-business owners — would be inevitably targeted for ­harassment. They had voted the wrong way and donated to the wrong campaign, and they needed to be punished.

He wasn’t “unconcerned.” Harrassment and, ultimately, violent assault was the whole idea from the git-go. Unapproved beliefs, you see, must not only be punished—they must be suppressed.

Liberals view the election of President Trump as a monstrous anomaly, something that should never have happened. They view all Trump supporters, be they Acela Corridor denizens or car-dealership owners in suburban Texas, as complicit in this great evil and therefore fair game.

The media is only too happy to help. Everyone remembers what The Washington Post and The New York Times did to the Covington Catholic boys. Or recall the way CNN went after an anonymous tweeter after Trump retweeted an image he had created mocking the network.

The message to anyone who dares not march in lockstep with liberalism: You don’t matter, and we will target you for ruination whenever we feel like it.

NOW you’re getting it.

Liberals, in short, have ­resolved that anything goes as they seek to thwart and undermine democracy in the name of liberalism.

Sure, liberals always say they want more political participation from the masses, but it turns out the only participation they welcome is the kind that helps them win.

Hence, too, their efforts to use underhanded juridical means to undo the outcome of elections they lose, whether that’s the “collusion” probe in America or endless bureaucratic stalling aimed at preventing Brexit.

But the attacks on private citizens is a new low.

Perhaps. But rest assured: you ain’t seen nothin‘ yet. For the Left, the end of totalitarian tyranny justifies any and all means, and they’ll inflict casualties and stack bodies just as high as they think they need to so as to accomplish our subjugation irreversibly. When it comes to gaining, securing, and expanding power and control for themselves, the Left recognizes no limits whatsoever. That is the only rule they follow, the only morality they have, and the only rationalization they need.
