Deeply Disturbing and Dangerous

A month ago I wrote about the mounting successes that Donald Trump has had and the declining number of NeverTrumpers there were in the Republican party. I specifically profiled the conversion of Glenn Beck in that blog post.

Since that time, Trump had his successful meeting with Kim Jong Un in Singapore and the Justice Department's Inspector General has released his report showing the disparate treatment of the DOJ and FBI in their investigations of Trump and Hillary Clinton. More and more Americans see the Mueller investigation to be what Trump calls it---a witch hunt.

Yes, Trump has taken a PR beating on the issue of the child separation issue on the border. However, as I explained here, the Trump administration's treatment of the children is essentially no different than Obama's. Few understand that the entire problem has largely resulted from Obama's liberal use of the asylum rules that created a massive influx of people and children from Central America to our border. The only real difference is that Obama was releasing hundreds of thousands of illegals into our country without regard to existing law.

In addition, do you think it is coincidental that the entire child separation issue suddenly materialized at exactly the same time the IG Report was being released and right after the Singapore summit?

As a wise friend of mine used to say.

"There is such a thing as coincidence. However, it is very, very rare."

In my earlier post I pointed out that the mounting successes of Trump would mean the Democrats, the Deep State and the leftists would get increasingly desperate.

The Democrats and Deep State seem to get more desperate by the day. Their entire world is being turned upside down. They told everyone that Trump would be a disaster.  Every day that passes with another Trump success destroys that narrative. Instead of more "Never Trumpers" we are seeing more voters who are seeing what is happening with their own eyes. There are more Glenn Beck's out there and that has to really scare the Democrats and the Deep State.

Since Trump first gained the GOP nomination they have been determined to find something or do something to drive Trump from office. There is not much they have not thrown at him over the last two years. I am still amazed that Trump is not only standing but succeeding. It would not surprise me to see the attacks get even more ferocious in the coming weeks.

Desperate people do desperate things.

Keep all of this in mind as we look for what might be next.

We live in interesting... and dangerous... times.

Let's just look at a few things that have transpired since I wrote that passage last month to show you how desperate and dangerous those on the left are becoming.

We had Robert DeNiro make a spectacle of himself on live TV at the Tony Awards.

“I’m going to say one thing: f**k Trump,” said De Niro, prompting many in the crowd to rise to their feet. As they applauded and cheered, he continued, “It’s no longer ‘down with Trump.’ It’s ‘f**k Trump.’”

Even worse than DeNiro's actions, the audience gave him a rousing standing ovation?

A Democrat state legislator posted this on Facebook to welcome Vice President Pence to Philadelphia.  How ironic that this guy represents people in the City of Brotherly Love.

A Congressional intern shouted F**k you to the President of the United States as Donald Trump walked through the Capitol Rotunda.

Former NBA Hall of Fame great Kevin McHale is being threatened and liberals are attempting to have him fired from his tv analyst job because he was seen at President Trump's rally in Duluth, MN. Yes, he was merely seen. He was not heard. He did not speak and had no official role. He did nothing but attend the event and he supposedly can be found in the picture below. I never could find him. You would think a 6'10' man would stand out a little more. Where's Waldo? No, where's McHale?

The Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen was harassed and harangued while having dinner at a Washington, DC restaurant by a number of liberal activists. Does it comes as a surprise that one of the Democrat Socialists of America who crashed the restaurant with chants and outbursts actually works for the Department of Justice.?

The DOJ employee defended herself by stating she was exercising her constitutional right of free speech. I guess Secretary Nielsen does not have any rights.

Finally, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was refused service at a restaurant in Lexington, Virginia because she works for the President of the United States.

When you see all of this you begin to think that Republican and Trump supporters should be added as a "protected class" to prevent discrimination being used against them.

I cautioned several weeks ago that desperate people do desperate things.

This is indeed desperate but is also deeply disturbing and dangerous.

I think it is time that those on the left take a deep breath and fully consider what they are doing.

Can you imagine if any of this had occurred during the Obama Presidency what the reaction would have been?

It is unthinkable.

What I do not understand is that there were millions and millions of people who were just as unhappy with the policies of Barack Obama for eight long years. Count me among them.

These people did shout profanities at him.

They did not threaten his supporters and try to take their livelihoods away from them.

They did not go into restaurants and shout at his cabinet officers while they ate dinner.

They did not refuse to serve them.

They did not threaten to boycott those that they did not agree with.

They did it the American way.

They went out and voted and sent a message that they were not pleased with the direction the country was headed under the direction of Obama and the Democrats.

The result was the largest turnover from Democrats to Republicans officeholders in history in such a short span of time.

Looked at across the political landscape, the Democrats lost over 1,000 political offices to Republicans between 2008 and 2016 including the House, the Senate and the Presidency.

You would think the Democrats might learn something from the experience?

They apparently haven't.

There is another way. There is another path. It worked for the Republicans.

Those of us who were not happy with Obama's policies got out and voted and turned his policies around. Apparently, Democrats think the answer is to just get vicious and vile.

Is it that the Democrats just don't have anything positive to sell to the American people?

Is that why they are on this deeply disturbing and dangerous path?

Let's hope this will soon pass.

If it doesn't, I truly fear where this path leads.
