Have you ever wondered why rage seems to be “all the rage” with liberals these days? Every time you turn around there’s another march for this or protest against that; recycled chants about how something “has got to go,” and a fawning media all too happy to report it as if it were news. It’s not news, of course, it’s a mass temper tantrum by political activists still unhappy their fellow Americans chose to reject Hillary Clinton in 2016. But there’s more to it than that, something strategic is at play.
Have you ever stubbed your toe and cursed in front of someone you otherwise would never consider using that kind of language in front of? Or gotten so mad while trying to fix something that you’ve ended up slamming it and making it worse? It’s likely you’ve done this or something similar because of one simple fact: emotion overrides logic.
When you’re angry or when you’re scared you aren’t thinking straight, you’re acting on emotion. That’s the state liberals have been keeping their base in since Donald Trump won the presidency.
To one degree or another, modern liberals have always used fear and anger to motivate their voters. After 9/11, Democrats ran on variations of “Republican policies are making us less safe.” With the terror attacks of that September morning still fresh in people’s minds, that was not designed to inspire.
To hear liberals tell it, this country is fundamentally racist and killing the planet. They, however, are the gatekeepers of fixing it all. (Never mind the fact that cities where they’ve had complete control for generations – Detroit, Chicago, Baltimore, etc. – are used for backdrops for movies about post-apocalyptic futures because they require so little set construction.) But are we those things?
The Southern Poverty Law Center, the left-wing go-to for all things “hate,” estimates there are about 6,500 members of the KKK in a country of 330 million. In 1920, when we had a population of 106 million, there were 4 million KKK members. We’ve gone from just under 4 percent of the population membership in that vile organization to what amounts to a rounding error. The WNBA, America’s least popular professional sport, averaged 7,644 in attendance in 2016. That means on any given night there are more than 1,100 more people at a WNBA game than in the Klan in the whole country. Racism, of course, still exists – in a nation of 330 million there are going to be a few bad apples – but to pretend it is rampant, the foundation of the country, is a blatant lie.
But it sure is an effective tool to keep people angry and afraid. You tell them there is this hidden hand working against them then every setback, which everyone has, can be ascribed to this hidden hand. It’s a self-reinforcing lie that, sadly, can sap some of the desire to try. Why bother if they system is rigged and actively working to keep you down?
As for climate change, liberals raise the stakes from one person’s life to the whole of humanity. Surrender your liberty or everyone is dead! That’s a hell of a choice. Only it doesn’t add up.
