A Mass Nervous Breakdown of the Left
American Thinker ^ | 10/25/10 | Mark J. Fitzgibbons

Posted on 10/25/2010 12:02:06 AM PDT by truthfreedom

... There have been many other instances -- too many to mention in this piece -- but I don't recall ever seeing the like of the disproportionate, unhinged attacks on Christine O'Donnell for her statements addressing the Establishment Clause in her Widener Law School debate with Chris Coons.

The left couldn't possibly want that one Delaware Senate seat enough to match their vitriol.

It's important to understand the context in which the Establishment Clause issue was addressed at the debate. Chris Coons said that only evolution must be taught in schools, and that intelligent design is prohibited from being discussed, even as a dissenting footnote to the conclusion that man was not created by God (who, then, consistent with Marxist doctrine, cannot be the source of our rights).

As I and others have pointed out, Ms. O'Donnell was right about the Establishment Clause. The mere debate, though, unravels many on the left. ...

They were going to have their turn at turning America into a socialist state with the privilege that it entailed.

Instead they bankrupted the nation,lost their sanity and lost any chance of being viewed as anything but vapid and ultimately demented people.

I don’t see them as evil,I don’t particularly hate them or fear them for that matter.I agree with this article,whatever sanity they had is gone.It is a party in denial and it is a desperate party and desperate people do stupid things.

We live in historic times!

The blow back from Obama’s Second American Revolution has created a counter revolution that threatens to overthrow socialism world wide.

The left, as well as quite a few who say they’re Independent or even Republican, went from Bush derangement, to Palin derangement, and now suffers from derangement as lifestyle totally intolerant of anyone or anything not in sync with the “we won, you lost” agenda they’ve pursued since the 2008 elections. This isn’t the first time in our history that the fascist democrat nobility has insisted that the citizenry agree with them and ignore the Constitution, but it is the first time in modern history the fascist party has en masse clearly insisted the governed are too stupid to understand enlightened democrat fascism and therefore shall henceforth have rulers rather than representatives. They further insist that those who are elected have no obligation represent those who elected them. In their minds, it is their own innate superiority that has granted them a right to rule, not the consent of the governed.

Far from recognizing how badly they’ve overstepped the role the Constitution outlines, the democrat nobility is sure that the real problem is the ignorance of the masses, masses they feel no obligation to even listen to. They have adopted their generally deranged reaction to any discussion of whether or not alternatives to evolution should be even mentioned in schools to any discussion that they engage in. Obviously, whether or not you agree with the theory of evolution as the engine of Creation, a deep belief in the theory of evolution does create a mindset intolerant of free thinking and addicted to constant stroking by like minded believers.

Regards

Many of you heard the laughter of those law students on the audio of Christine’s statement of truth about the Establishment Clause. That action tells us what we need to know about the lies being taught in American Academia and exposes so very much about the ignorance of those presumed to be educated here, just as the Juan Williams scandal did for NPR. Events are taking place at a breathtaking speed. People are awakening, thank God, in time to save this nation from those who desire it’s demise. If she could win that race in Delaware, those citizens would become tremendous Patriots for all time.

The tea party movement is a spontaneous grassroots phenomenon precipitated by genuine fear that the Obama administration was irretrievably damaging the nation and threatening their children and grandchildren with utter ruin.

These people are not unaware that they have been vilified as racists, bigots, and ignoramuses and they have openly expressed their natural resentment for these calumnies. They are not likely soon to forget them nor are they likely soon to forget that this political party has behaved so irresponsibly as to put the survival of the Republic, as they inherited it, in jeopardy.

I met people in the 1960s who voted reflexively democrat because, "Franklin Roosevelt closed the banks and saved the farm." There will be a percentage of tea party patriots who will not forget.

The only thing that can make them forget it is bad behavior by the Republicans in the 112th Congress.

You had to end with that jarring note? Unfortunately, the republicans who have been in DC for decades have been co-opted by the system, so that is a real risk. We can only hope that the new blood leads instead of following.

Widener is widely known in the legal profession as the law school one goes to if unable to get in anywhere else. So their laughing at this is sort of like the law students at Howard University erupting in cheers when OJ was found not guilty.

But it would have been similar at almost every other law school in the U.S. Conservatives are a rare breed in law school. I speak from experience.

I’ve already seen that breakdown: just look at President Obama’s recent stump speeches.

That is by design. They are being told WHAT to think, not HOW to think. No input from them is required, other than to march in step and shout on cue.

If they actually are taught the truth by instructors who care about them as individuals created in the image of God, individuals who have a responsibility to God to know the truth and act responsibly on their own, they don't usually turn out lethargic.

I believe the Left “Alinskied” COD in order to paint all Conservatives as too Radical, Extreme, and Dangerous.
In fact it is the Democrats who are too Radical, Extreme, and Dangerous.

“The left couldn’t possibly want that one Delaware Senate seat enough to match their vitriol.”

WRONG!! There are people on the left - and the right(Karl Rove, for one)- who will do anything it can to destroy those they see as a threat to their power. Every single Coons ad has been a personal attack; while Christine O’Donnell talks to the issues.

What gets me is the hatred expressed by women to women candidates. They don’t realize that the same people who demean Conservative women can just as easily turn on them.

I live in PA, close to the Del state line. Around here, when someone says they are from Delaware, they always get asked...."Where in Delaware?...Dumber upper, or slower lower?"

Excellent, but I disagree with this:

That omission does little to motivate his base, enough of whom still believe God is the source of our rights,

Anyone who still understands and believes this is not part of the Democommie base.

Well, I think I agree, for the most part.

However, the Democrat base is a little bit wider than simply the leftist antireligioners.

The underclass is the Democrat base as well. They like Government handouts but do go to church.

The Dems have to put together a coalition in order to win elections. The Dems have a real tough time winning without Catholics for example.

Well, actually, you’re agreeing with the article.

You are not saying that they care about that seat. You are agreeing that they are acting they way they are for different reasons than a mere desire to win a particular race in a particular state.

Yes, conservatives are rare. But Widener is a really bad law school.

There are very few Conservatives in Delaware. 29%. Nationally, it’s 40%. Hawaii is 28% Conservative, Rhode Island is 29%. Every other state has more Conservatives.
Delaware isn’t particularly high in Liberals. Very high in Moderates, very low in Conservatives.

I'm not just talking about the antireligious. Too many of those churchgoing "underclass" you speak of, think that the Constitution is a document that says "here's what you're allowed to do." That's why I said, anyone who understands that God is the source of our rights, not a piece of paper or a government agency, is not part of the Democommie base.

I think Delaware is a beautiful state especially the beaches and the state parks. I would move there in a minute if I could retire and live on the Ocean.

We’re not and never have been lethargic. We’re biding our time until the hippies grow old and are at our mercy. We will of course show them none. I’m (27) and you would be surprised at what we ourselves say behind closed doors. It’s not politically correct. I am disappointed that you think that we are lethargic and stupid and have no appreciation for this country.

At the moment, my peers are too busy scrambling ot make a living and build our own lives. We are doing that so we have futures. At the moment, the Tea Party is paving the way and we are right behind.
