Sometimes people ask me why I stopped being a Leftist, and I usually point to me not wanting to be angry all the time. Lately, I’m seeing another very good reason not to be a Leftist. They have become total drama queens. Yes, even the men, and in some cases, especially the men. I’m looking right at you, Shep Smith.
Since Donald Trump won the 2016 Election, I figured the Left would have a hard time adjusting to life where they had less power than a burnt out Lite Brite set. Little did I know the Left would go hardcore cray-cray on us. Every incident that even remotely could be turned into a sinister act has been or will be.
Take Attorney General Jeff Sessons’ request for 46 Obama-era US Attorneys to resign. To hear the Left speak of it, it was a massive purge designed to derail any investigation into Trump’s ties to Russia, business dealings, putting ketchup on his well-done steak, and other presumed atrocities. (To be fair, though, I kinda agree with the ketchup on the well-done steak. That’s just offensive on two levels.) And the Left’s mouthpieces in the media amplify the freak-outs by repeating and embellishing the outrage. And don’t you dare try to reason with them! These brave warriors are standing firm against a Trump Tyranny and are our last best hope for America!
Of course, they’re full of shit, but as the line from “Animal House” goes, “Forget it, he’s rolling.”
This is a good time to remind the readers out there to question what you see, hear, and read from any and all news sources, even the ones you agree with. For years, conservative media turned just about everything President Obama did into a scandal worthy of a -gate designation. Over time, this kind of reporting gets some people riled, but it turns off more and more people because they get tired of hearing the reporter who cries “scandal” in lieu of “wolf.” Plus, it diverted attention away from real
scandals and made it easier for opponents to dismiss it as another wild goose chase. I firmly believe oneof the reasons Hillary Clinton’s private email server wasn’t a bigger deal to people is the fact the Right
spent a lot of political capital on meaningless scandalmongering that resulted in less than my bank account after a trip to ComiCon.
Now, the Left is doing exactly what the Right did under Obama, and it’s not working. All it’s doing at this point is giving red meat to their supporters (or tofu to their vegan supporters) while making others look at them like most of us look when Alec Baldwin does a Donald Trump impression so bad, Frank Caliendo is rolling over in his grave and he’s not even dead yet. A bit of a long-winded way to get to a joke, but I think it’s worth it.
What isn’t worth it is paying attention to every little freak-out the Left has these days. Listen. Donald Trump as President isn’t a sign of the apocalypse. That distinction belongs to Justin Bieber continuing to make
music. While you try to make every perceived discretion into the next Watergate, you’re making yourselves look foolish and not credible. When Alex Jones is seen as more credible than you, you have a serious problem.
And guess what, kids. Alex Jones is Edward R. Murrow compared to you nozzleheads right now.
