When Will Democrats Realize That Obama is Killing Them?

Government has only two things to do in this world. First, its job is to protect us against foreign enemies, pirates and plunderers and such. Second, its job it so protect us against domestic enemies, thieves and murderers and such. All else doth err.

But the whole program of the left is based on a denial of this. On foreign enemies they say that it is our aggressive foreign policy that incites anger across the world. Not the mention the precipitate of western colonialism. On domestic enemies they accuse the police of "brutality."

Hillary Clinton was playing that game a while back when she tweeted:
Let’s be clear: Islam is not our adversary. Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.
President Obama was playing that game a week ago when he said the police could make their job safer by admitting their failures.

This sort of liberal jaw-flapping is annoying at the best of times, but when we have a Muslim global terror problem in the world, and a Black Lives Matter anti-cop program at home, it becomes unendurable.

At some point reality breaks through the liberal propaganda screen and people will start to demand that the government does its job, and protect us from enemies, foreign and domestic. They will start to say that they don't care whether Muslims are peaceful and tolerant, just kill the terrorists; they will start to say that they don't care if the police have it in for young black men, just stop the cop killers.

At some point this election year, I predict, Democrats and their willing accomplices in the media are going to wake up and realize that they are losing the American people and losing the election. It will break through Hillary Clinton's skull that President Obama and his lefty rhetoric are enraging ordinary Americans and that they are going to vote for change over four more wonderful years of Obama.

By then, of course, it will be too late.

You may ask: why do the Democrats do this? The answer, I think, is that the Democrats and liberals want to use politics to fight a different war than the war against street thugs and foreign thugs. They want to fight inequality domestically and internationally. Not to mention save the planet from climate change. It stands to reason that nobody is going to allow them to do that while there are still street thugs killing people and foreign thugs mowing down French people watching patriotic fireworks shows.

So, in order to do the fun things that liberals want to do with their political power, they first have to say that there is no need to do the basic stuff of protection. That stuff is old hat, and anyway racist and colonialist and irrelevant.

Of course, they are lying about this, and worst of all, have come to believe their lies. The only thing that government is warranted to do in this world is protect us against enemies, foreign and domestic. Everything else is just domestic loot and plunder, the armed minority of the ruling class taxing the inhabitants to reward its supporters.

OK. I've made my prediction. Now let's see how it turns out.

  1. I like your analysis. And I like your turn of phase: The only thing that government is warranted to do in this world is protect us against enemies, foreign and domestic. Everything else is just domestic loot and plunder, the armed minority of the ruling class taxing the inhabitants to reward its supporters.
    History and the teaching of real history is a key long term protection against this civic tyranny. Unfortunately the left and their unions have control of the education system.They also dominate the online information and full free portals like Wikipedia with misinformation and propaganda. You in the U.S. will be saved by home schooling. It is my belief the homeschool constituency is the future. I'd be interested in your thoughts on this.
