    1. Social Justice can’t happen without someone being punished and since no one alive today is responsible for slavery, a bunch of scapegoats need to be found. It’s their turn to see how it feels.

      That the same group that fought for slavery wants to carry out this collective punishment on innocents is a stunning display of a lack if self awareness.

      1. I was thinking more of the progressives that came to power in Germany and Russia about a century ago and the ones still running China.

    1. I think violence is easily avoided if the left loses a few more elections, after which they’ll form the usual circular firing squads. People who hate everybody, by definition, hate everybody, including their own erstwhile political allies, and they’ll run out of friends pretty darn quickly.

      1. The debate cycle till now, and to continue, is the best example of a circular firing squad you’re ever going to find. Democratic composure and disposition doesn’t seem to be improving.

        I hope the Republican agent that sold them on the idea of having every Democrat that thinks they should be President taking turns pounding on each other on national TV has a good escape plan. A few more months of this and even the dimmest Dems will start to look around for someone to blame.

        1. MCS, agreed.

          As for the blame for the circular firing squad though, I can answer that; they’ll blame Trump.

          I was joking when I wrote the above, but the more I think about it, I’ll make it a for-real prediction. They’ll try to blame Trump for the mess they are making of their primaries.

        I dunno George. They seem impervious to fact or reality and there are an awful lot of them

      3. “…if the left loses a few more elections…”

        But they only have to win one more election, and that doesn’t include defeating Trump. All they have to do next year is keep the House and take back the Senate, then remove Trump, remove Pence, then install Nancy Pelosi as the first woman President of the US. The pro forma elections won’t matter after that. I doubt Octavian’s contemporaries realized the Republic had given way to the Principate either.

          1. That’s true, but is it more unlikely than that the left lose “a few more elections?” How many more Republicans have to retire before there are a dozen Senate seats in play? And as far as I know, there’s nothing to stop a Democratic controlled Congress form doing an “Impeachment of the Week Show,” or censuring every Republican Senator every week. I’m sure you can think of many more entertaining possibilities. It doesn’t look to me like elected Democrats or the people who elected them are going to come to their senses any time soon, or that the Republicans are going to “grow a pair.” We’ll see, I guess.

            If they do that it will make Caligula’s horse look like pure genius. Because at least Caligula appointed the entire horse.

        1. Have any of the remaining democrat candidates for occupation of the White House not given us good reason to regard their assumption of office as a life and death threat?
