Maybe its spring fever.
Maybe some peoples medications have run out. Maybe the moon has slipped closer to Earth and is fostering lunacy.
For whatever reason, the Left has abandoned restraint and gone slightly bat crazy. Well, okay. More bat crazy.
Democrats, who demand open borders, are blaming President Trump for any threat to America posed by the coronavirus. Mike Bloomberg and Joe Biden claim that Trump budget cuts have crippled the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cuts never made, according to an Associated Press Fact Check.
On Wednesday, Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of ABCs The View, reacted to Joe Bidens Super Tuesday comeback by floating the idea of Mr. Bidens wife joining a Biden cabinet: "I'm hoping Dr. Jill becomes the surgeon general, Ms. Goldberg said. She's a hell of a doctor. She's an amazing doctor." The audience lustily applauded before a panel member noted that Jill Biden is not an MD and has only a doctorate in education.
Whoopi withdrew the nomination and suggested that Mrs. Biden take over the Department of Education instead. However, given Jills blocking ability, shown when she prevented a nutty vegan protester from reaching her husband while on stage, perhaps Dr. Biden should consider an NFL career. Cant you see her intimidating defensive linemen, squinting at them while yelling, the doctor is IN!
Not to be outdone, Denver City Councilwoman Candi CdeBacay, a Democrat in the mold of New Yorks outspoken Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, re-tweeted a California womans tweet that said, For the record, if I do get the coronavirus Im attending every MAGA rally I can. Nice.
#solidarity Yaaaas!! Cdebaca wrote in the forwarded tweet. She later explained that it was merely sarcastic. Huh?
This is reminiscent of LGBTQ activist and sex columnist Dan Savage boasting 20 years ago that, while suffering with the flu, he licked doorknobs at the campaign headquarters of Republican presidential candidate Gary Bauer, hoping to infect the staff. Mr. Savage, who is still dispensing bizarre sex advice, went on to pen columns for The New York Times. The Gray Lady sure has an expansive idea of inclusive politics.
This past week to add to the lunacy, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer let loose his inner thug (which is a lot like his outer thug) and made a gravelly-throated threat to two Supreme Court justices during a pro-abortion rally outside the Court.
Addressing the newest justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh Sen. Schumer yelled at the crowd:
I want to tell you, Gorsuch. I want to tell you Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You wont know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.
Rep. Ayanna Presley of Massachusetts told the crowd that two alleged sexual predators were sitting on the court, referring to Clarence Thomas and Kavanaugh.
For the Left, this smear-a-thon is what passes for civility, as we saw at Justice Thomas confirmation hearings in 1991 and Kavanaughs confirmation hearings in 2018.
Mr. Schumers menacing message makes President Obamas attack on the Court during his 2010 State of the Union address look like gentle ribbing. Mr. Obama completely misrepresented the Citizens United ruling, mangling it so badly that Justice Sam Alito was caught on camera mouthing not true.
But campaign finance reform does not hold a candle as an issue to the progressives religious devotion to abortion, even though the right to kill unborn babies has been around only since 1973. Thats when the leftwing majority on the Court conjured up emanations and penumbras with their magic decoder ring and a copy of the Constitution.
That same ring of power came in handy in 2003, when it revealed a right to sodomy despite no precedents and again in 2015, when it ignored ample precedent, illuminating the invisible words gay marriage.
Ever since 1973, the Left has howled like rabid wolves at any attempts whatsoever to tighten abortion clinic medical safeguards, require parental consent for minors, require ultrasounds or waiting periods, or even providing medical care for abortion survivors. They think its somehow more humane to deliberately let a child die after a botched abortion. Just ask Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, who opined to that effect on a radio interview.
Two weeks ago, 41 Senate Democrats voted to successfully block the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Act, which passed 56-41. Only three Democrats voted yes Bob Casey Jr. (PA), Doug Jones (AL), and Joe Manchin (W.VA).
Even if it had passed the Senate filibuster, the bill didnt have a prayer in Nancy Pelosis House of Reprehensibles, many of whom hail from Trump districts and dont want a recorded vote favoring infanticide.
They may be crazy, but theyre not dumb.
Has there EVER been a time when the true Lefties have NOT been bat-s**t crazy?
Yes, its crazy time on the left but on the Republican side its appeasement time, as usual. I would actually prefer to see a little aggressive craziness on “the right” to let us know they are at least doing SOMETHING.
The infectious Candi Cdebacka, her "wife" and the wife's mother.
snowflake hysteria = uncontrollable excessive rage, panic, loathing, and malice/malevolence when exposed to rationality
Note to Self: Stay away from Denver.
They are evil
When that failed it became obvious they were going to have to find jobs. Too stupid and lazy to find real jobs, they went into politics (Jerry Brown, Bill Clinton) and teaching. (Timothy Leary)
Insanity became the new normal. Today it reigns supreme. It's called liberalism.
“””Note to Self: Stay away from Denver.”””””””””
In the late 1970’s I drove from North Dakota to California for a little vacation. As I got closer to Denver I couldn’t figure out what that dark cloud over the city was. It was heavy smog. I had never seen smog before and couldn’t believe how dirty the place was.
Maybe the smog is what caused people there to become so nuts.
Or the over indulgence of other "smoke".
We often get atmospheric inversions where the air at higher altitudes is warmer than the air at lower. It creates a clearly defined line holding all exhaust etc below. With unleaded gas and scrubbers, etc, we rarely have bad brown days like we used to, even with the explosion in population but still get the inversions (mostly in the winter).
Nice, has a solid ring to it!
How can we tell?
My dad lived on Green Mountain in the 70s. From his backyard deck the view of smog was amazing, it actually had a copper color.
I remember those days. Also recall flying into LAX in the early 70s and the air was like coffee. I remember thinking to myself, “what is it going to look like in 20 years if it looks like this now?” Fortunately, both LA and Denver look better now than they did then.
