Angry Left Is Angry


My second ex-wife and my Psycho Ex-Girlfriend had something in common – they were angry a lot. While you might think that being with me must have had something to do with it, in both cases the anger generally existed totally independent of anything I said or did. And especially in the latter case, it wasn’t just anger but rage.

Robert Tracinski thinks he knows why the angry left is so angry:

For the secular leftist, the end state is social and necessarily political. It is all about getting everybody else on board and herding them into his imagined utopia. There are so many “problematic” aspects of life that need to be reengineered, so many vast social systems that need to be overthrown and replaced. But the rest of us are all screwing it up, all the time, through our greed, our denial, our apathy, our refusal to listen to him banging on about his tired socialist ideology.

For the Christian, the ideal end state is safely in the next world and therefore is never in doubt. For the individualist, it’s in his own life, and it’s mostly under his direct control. For the leftist, however, it is all outside his control. It requires other people, a lot of other people, and those SOBs usually refuse to cooperate. Talk about rage-inducing.

If the whole focus of your life is on getting everybody else to agree with you on every detail of your politics and adopt your plans for a perfect society, then you’re setting yourself up to be at war with most of the human race most of the time.

Which means an awful lot for the Angry Left to get angry about.

Although he makes a good point, I think it’s a little more complicated than that.

There is an old adage that conservatives think liberals are stupid while liberals think conservatives are evil.

Here’s an example:

Just one little problem. Ted Cruz never said that.

Here’s another example:

These kinds of things are what pass for rational discourse on the Left these days. It’s scary when you think about it. Thankfully they don’t have any guns.

    Their rage is associated with depression or personality disorders. Depressives get all worked up to get their brains working. Personality disordered like to manipulate and terrorize people. I just described most Vile Progs. There is something wrong with them. Avoid them and never give in to them.

    So then, what do they say about bronco? Isn’t he the direct descendant of a bank vice-president and communist parents?
    Salon, Vox they can be used interchangeably and no one would notice a difference.

    OT – I had to move my retirement date. I won’t leave until June 30. (It’s all about health care benefits) I send in my revised application this afternoon… (35 days) We can party as if bronco had not stolen the last 2 elections!!! 😀

      June 30th is right around the corner. We’ll help you pass the time with helpful suggestions on how to survive in the meantime. Flavorful additives to coffee, blueberry scones, banana bread, snickerdoodles, kitteh cuddles, time enjoying a good book or movie in the redecorated Klown dungeon. Just remember you may look at 49erDweet’s collection of rufflies but no wearing of said garments. (I should never post until my second cup of java)
      Do you have any vacation or sick days you can take? 😎

      • leslie says:

        that means I’ll be in the dungeon until then, right? Sounds like a plan… 🙂
        The vacation days/sick time could be used if everyone else hadn’t beat me to it. Everyone else is scheduling their time off just in case another clinician isn’t hired. I just had the special snowflake academy graduate take the last Friday I could work (and was not planning to) to attend yet another Friday conference. (this immediately after asking when I was going to leave.)
        gggrrrrrrrrrrrr 👿

      What about his paternal side? Any interesting or well funded relatives?

      • Somebody says:

        His dad ended up in the Kenyan government as an economist AND a devout socialist. Prior to his government job he worked as an economist for an oil company. I would say he most likely had a good income and privilege, especially in Kenya.

        Apparently he did spend the last decade of his life in poverty after a couple of car accidents that resulted in his losing his legs and his job. I guess he didn’t have any savings.

        All in all it doesn’t really matter because Obama never knew his father. If his father had been a king it wouldn’t have mattered.

    Liberation can Be Tricky
    “Welcome to the wonderful world of Doublespeak. For the welfare women who have eschewed husbands from their baby factories in exchange for the government check, children become a resource rather than an innocent to be nurtured.. What a shame and it is no mystery why there is so much anger among the youth existing on Uncle Sam’s plantation.

    I used to think it was bleeding hearts that unwisely fostered so many programs that broke up the homes but the sad fact is that liberals don’t give a rat’s arse about the poor. Their Marxist ideology and 27 trillion dollars later have done nothing to eliminate poverty but it has succeeded in creating a dependent, ignorant sub-class forever beholden to their political ‘massuhs.’

    “Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Carly Fiorina will both be campaigning in Columbia, South Carolina, on Wednesday, and the Fiorina campaign is making sure reporters know its candidate will be answering questions. Fiorina will be available to speak to the press, says deputy campaign manager Sarah Isgur Flores, shortly before speaking with Republican state legislators at the state capitol. The former Hewlett-Packard CEO will also travel to Spartanburg later in the day for another event.”

    I am thinking that meeescelle’s so called food ideas are just for spite. Do not see her giving up anything that tastes good, just trying to ruin it for the rest of us

  9. HELENK3 says:

    something I do not understand, why does the black community trash those who have succeeded and made a good life for themselves and others, but glorify those who break the law, kill, and make heroes out of those who do nothing good with their lives? Then expect better for their kids. this makes no sense to me

    Ruh roh!

    From the New York Times:

    My first job out of college was at a major political campaign. Late in the year, an intern told me she had been raped by one of my colleagues and that campaign higher-ups made the problem go away. I’m not sure what that means, but the police weren’t involved, nothing made the news, all the people involved kept their jobs. To my knowledge, this young woman told me and one other colleague. I kept the secret to myself for the last seven years until the other night. I let slip to a journalist friend the very basics of what happened, and now I’m being asked for contacts who can confirm that it happened.

    Now here comes the part that makes it interesting. The politician in question is running again:

    The candidate I worked for is running again. I still support the candidate, and I do not want the opponent in office. On the other hand, I am aghast that the organization would cover up such a heinous crime.

    There it is. We have allegations of a heinous crime that was covered up seven years ago and that the candidate for which this intern worked is running again. Who is it? Can anyone think of any candidate that might fit this profile?

    True or troll?

    • piper says:

      Must be a Republican candidate 👿.
      This article is a teaser to draw progressive wrath on those evil lecherous Pugs. Only Lena and other Dem. celebrants can have inappropriate sexual contact without fear of reprisals or snickering.

      • Lulu says:

        The candidate may have never heard about it. Campaigns are run by professional organizations and almost all of the day to day stuff and hiring and firing are done by the hired guns and their flunkies. This person should not assume that the candidate heard anything about a low level campaign worker unless they know for a fact that someone told the candidate such as herself or the “victim”. Since she didn’t tell and kept quiet about it (for years!) when something could have been done about it she is culpable too.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Convenient timing. Smells trollish to me. I’m guessing national office, so either Hillary or one of the Repubs running again this cycle.

      That’s pretty amazing, Helen. Apparently defeat is not fun. And the roofs? Incendiary bombs sure did in thousands and thousands of roofs.

    • smile says:

      Very interesting to watch. There is a lot of animosity expressed in many of the people toward the cameraman. I am assuming it is an allied military person who filmed this, especially since there is footage that could only have been taken from a low flying aircraft and it would not have been possible for a civilian to be there at that time. If they were all indeed unaware of the atrocities toward the Jewish people as they claim, why then all the animosity? They should have been grateful that they were shown the truth. Somehow their faces and body language are not indicative of people who hated the Reich but had to pretend to like it and support it out of fear of the concentration camps.

      Oh Cher. Poor thing has become quite addled. Her gay Republican statement is insulting. During the gay cake/pizza/florist drama I lost friends of 30 years with statements about self hate and how can you be so stupid you lived in NY. Why do NYers think they are so smart because of a zipcode?
      I was downtown and laughing as I watched the green initiative in Pittsburgh. Small small small downtown area it comes to a point. The streets are not a grid. Traffic was annoying but they decided to add bike lanes. Creating more idling cars, but bikes zip by. Unless you live very close to downtown there is no way you could bike to work. It is all hills. Then you show up for work after a bike ride. It is comical. The closed lanes with idling or slow moving cars are creating more pollution just from that. It is too cold at least 4 months/ yr and it rains all the time. They built a subway system in the downtown area at a huge cost- takes 10 maybe 15 minutes to walk anywhere downtown. Serves a few neighborhoods looks very charming and makes the city seem more cosmopolitan. The Port Authority is underwater fares keep going up service keeps going down. I went to see my brat’s end of year performance. My mom hates busses and for years she rode the “T” so we drove 15 minutes to a station took a 20 minute ride on the train. Sunday morning 6 included the three of us on board. How does that “save the earth”. Young girl told me at Dunkin Donuts as we were both charging our tablets that we were not burning fossil fuels by taking the train. I asked her where electricity came from and she said the sky. She was sweet and meant well and I refrained from attack. Nice young lady being privy to the world and having a slither of guilt she was 22 and had a purse that was more than I have ever spent on a wardrobe. I said why Dunkin and why this Dunkin(we were a little away from the school) I heard this was where you could get a charge without waiting my sister is in the show and I knew my battery was dead. Impossibly sweet girl. I thought maybe if I wasn’t gay and she wasn’t 22 I could fall in love. Nope she had not bought anything. Just came in behind me as an outlet. I immediately tried to come to her defense, but she would not let it go that she had every right to charge her phone because the sky said electrity is free. I left no cops were called even though there was a moment when I thought she was going to loose it. I am 48 and this young woman seduced me. Can I wait months and claim I was taken advantage . She had a mark I was it. She was Michelle Pfeiffer kind of amazing with a little of Wynnona.
      I wanted to protect her even through lies. She was a pro played me. I did care about her but not about her lies.
      I realize everyday I am small person.
