In Leftist circles, three realities must be kept in mind by people of good will: one, the secular Left is driven by the universal Chip on the Shoulder which gives them permission to viciously attack all opposition; two, in their view, people most aligned with the Founders deserve political assassination; and three, secular Leftists (in the main communists with global ambitions) seized control of the Democrat Party long ago.
The Complainer in Chief in the White House would have us believe he is the champion of the poor and the dispossessed, the marginalized and the oppressed. Aside from the fact these groups are much worse off than when he snatched power, this Usurper continues his droning rhetoric, even in the wake of his monumental defeat Nov. 4. It took a while but voters finally said ‘enough!’ We are tired of listening to complaints, excuses, accusations and blame shift. We are fed up with the constant drum beat of denigration: the claims America is the problem, white people are the problem, Republicans are the problem, capitalism is the problem, corporations are the problem, Christians are the problem, the Tea Party is the problem, gun owners are the problem, and the police and military are the problem.
The Chip on the Shoulder has been the Left’s steroid for 100 years. It is always someone else’s fault. There is a demon behind every name plate. The enemy is here, or there, or everywhere, and the common man, the worker and the indigenous are all the victims of the enemy. So once you set up the conflict according to your narrow view of history and the world (dialectical materialism), and side with the ‘victims,’ it is an easy task setting the grievance committee on fire to attack and demand and protest and assault. This strategy has been the stock and trade of Democrats since the days of Lyndon Johnson, escalating with increasing viciousness to this day.
