Democrats Refuse To Give Up The Ghost – War Still On

In short, the Loonie Left has a completely delusional view of the world, utterly divorced from reality. “The Left is smarter and wiser than the Right,” and the Right must therefore be assimilated. “Resistance is futile.” When the Right opposes the Left, and, heaven help us, actually wins a fight, the Left cannot bring itself to understand that they might be wrong. That would be so, so harmful to their self-esteem. Snowflakes cannot allow themselves to be triggered.

American thinker reports:

Any sane observer would recognize those Russia-related claims to be complete nonsense. Trump has done more contrary to Putin’s benefit than any president before by radically increasing US oil and gas production, which has the effect of severely impacting the sole major source of foreign currency for Russia, but Jones’ psychopathology prevents that appreciation. It also allows a blindness to the time Obama told Putin’s sidekick Medvedev that “after the election I’ll have more flexibility.” In other words, I can’t kiss up right now, but I can after I’m re-elected. And, by the way, I won’t put any effort into stopping your attempts to meddle in our elections.

Obsessive/Compulsive Personality Disorder (aka Trump Derangement Syndrome) is a major psychiatric defect. In this case it has its origin in theincontrovertible fact that only the Left is intelligent or wise. Thus, Donald Trump could not possibly win the Presidency. But when he won, it became imperative that his election be delegitimized.

Within hours, such luminaries as Maxine Waters declared that we needed to “Impeach 45!” Her massive intellect missed the point that you cannot impeach a president who has not yet taken office. Nor has she been able to explain how you can impeach a president for acts that predate the election. The Constitution’s “high crimes and misdemeanors,” only applies to the president’s official tenure. But that level of insight is far beyond the capability of an obsessive.

To the delusional, when any Court rules against one of Trump’s actions, that means Trump is an authoritarian, even while the President allows the Court to stay his actions pending appeal. Anything the Left doesn’t like is “Unconstitutional!” but of course Obama’s acts weren’t, even though the Courts consistently ruled against his “pen and phone.”

In short, the Loonie Left has a completely delusional view of the world, utterly divorced from reality. “The Left is smarter and wiser than the Right,” and the Right must therefore be assimilated. “Resistance is futile.” When the Right opposes the Left, and, heaven help us, actually wins a fight, the Left cannot bring itself to understand that they might be wrong. That would be so, so harmful to their self-esteem. Snowflakes cannot allow themselves to be triggered.

TDS is not limited to politicians and commentators. Legal analyst David R Lurieclaims that Attorney General Barr has created a new and dangerous interpretation of the doctrine of Obstruction of Justice. To do so, he completely misrepresents the statements of the AG and President Trump to the point of denying that the first sentence of Article II vests all executive authority in a single person: The President. The FBI Director and the Attorney General are his subordinates. To “go easy” on Flynn would be “prosecutorial discretion.” But that would contradict Lurie’s delusions, and so he repeats them to all who will hear. Of course, Flynn got no discretion, and Trump did not intervene.

David Corn of Mother Jones is not so circuitous in his declamations. “Trump Aided and Abetted Russia’s Attack. That Was Treachery. Full Stop.” His screed contains so many distortions and lies that they become impossible to count, and even more difficult to comprehend. They stand in direct contradiction to Mueller’s evidence and conclusions. We are again left with the disquieting fact that a large part of our public square has become completely bereft of any reasoning power.

The Left’s echo chamber demonstrates all sorts of primitive defense mechanisms in play. Denial is obvious, but it’s just the first step. Reality is too painful, so it simply cannot be true. Acting out has been ubiquitous with the Antifa movement, with physical assaults against peaceful political opponents. This is justified by projection, where the psychotic person cannot accept his own thoughts and beliefs, and so projects them on to the opponent, the “hater” or “fascist.” Projection is often combined with Compartmentalization, where the evil parts of oneself are separated from “who I am” in order to avoid guilt for evil personal deeds.

Slightly more mature defense mechanisms include rationalizations. These are more common in legal commentators than the bulk of the Left. But again, even this depends on the very first, most primitive mechanism: Denial.

“Trump didn’t win fair.” “Trump is the enemy of America.” These and similar demonstrably false tropes are so central to the identity of many on the Left that they cannot be allowed to be challenged without personal disintegration. All of the various denials of the Barr letter have to be seen in this light. They are “tales told by an idiot, signifying nothing.” (Macbeth, Act 5, Scene 5). Those who thought that the Left might give up the witch hunt have far too optimistic a view of the sanity of the Left. Psychotics cannot choose to gain insight.

Fortunately most Americans are not idiots. The task of providing house and home take too much time and effort to be subverted by the psychotic ravings of Democrats and their lapdogs in the MSM. In my humble opinion, more Americans will be persuaded by multiplying job opportunities and growing wages than the ravings of people who have disconnected from reality. Cries of “unfair!” to the Senate vote on the Green New Deal will be correctly answered by “Democrats were so interested in climate change that they refused to vote for their own bill.” Truth will win the day. After all, Americans want safe streets, good schools, and good jobs first. Democrats offer nothing on these frontiers, while Donald Trump is working hard.

Americans are very sane. And they recognize insanity, even if they don’t have the fancy language for it. “Collusion Truthers,” indeed.
