    1. Jon, You go into these small colleges in California and, like a lot of small colleges in the blue states, their lives have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and the Obama administration and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna get a life and they have not.

      And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling delusionally to the state or Marxism or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-firearm sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

    After a shooter in Alexandria left House Majority Whip Steve Scalise in critical condition and wounded four other people, a longtime New Jersey Democratic political strategist responded by introducing the hashtags #HuntRepublicans and #HuntRepublicanCongressmen.

    “We are in a war with selfish, foolish & narcissistic rich people,” wrote James Devine on Twitter. “Why is it a shock when things turn violent? #HuntRepublicanCongressmen.”

  2. “We are in a war with selfish, foolish & narcissistic rich people.” You mean like the Clintons and Darth Soros? Damn right we are . . . if by “we” you mean people who value liberty.

  3. We have been dealing with the hate for a long time but were told we have to be tolerant of other views, even hateful ones. We have all seen how Christians are treated by our friends to the left but other groups don’t get treated much better. Putting a crucifix in a jar of urine was celebrated. Burning the American flag is a time honored tradition. OK, fine but then don’t get bent if someone burns a Koran or doesn’t want to participate in your ideological ceremony by taking photos or baking cakes.

    There can’t be different rules based on what the Democrat party thinks of different groups.

    Hate isn’t so much the problem. The real problem is the disingenuous bad faith style of debate where Democrats don’t acknowledge or comprehend the reasoning behind Republicans opposition to their policies. You get arguments like, only a religious person could be against abortion or not wanting a welfare state means you want to murder people or not agreeing with their preferred policies on climate means you want the world to end and everyone to die.

    I have been in twitter arguments where the lefty doesn’t even comprehend my POV. They just have some BS stereotype. I like to challenge them to paraphrase my argument in their words but from my POV. They can never do it but it is a very simple thing to do. To actually empathize with someone enough to understand their POV is a step too far for most lefties. It causes major cognitive dissonance in how they view the world and their own identity.

    1. Bigots gravitate to power. They do not have reasons. They just want to be part of the herd, because the herd provides safety.

  4. I figure that the odds of the guy in Alexandria were about even when he decided to pick up a rifle instead of writing letters to the editor, whether he’d go after Republicans or Democrats that he saw as betraying Bernie. If they were predictable, they wouldn’t be insane.

    The same is true for those nuts that espouse the “Republican” side.

    We may be about to find out which side has the better shots. So far, I’m not impressed by the Bernie Bro’s.
