The Disillusioned Left


This is the problem that Yuri Bezmenov referred to when he said that the leftist ideologues and academics would be the first ones eliminated in any Communist purges. Obama is running up against the same thing right now.

The disillusion has produced a growing tide of organizing energy — and money — among liberals aimed at dragging the White House back to where many supporters believe Obama's heart really lies. Union presidents have discarded their talking points and are openly sparring with the White House, while gay rights activists threaten civil disobedience, the ACLU keeps litigating, and congressional Hispanic leaders work to force their issues into the debate.

But while those actions may actually create politically useful space to the president’s left, the other consequence of disillusion is what polls have found to be deepening apathy among Democratic voters.

Those rioters who scream about "rights" they don't really have, will as noted above, be the first put against the wall. Retired cops like me will be told, "We have our eyes on you, you old bastard." I will say, '10-4,' and that will be the end of it. Police stand for order.

The gay lobby is always screaming - give them an inch and they take a mile, if you'll pardon the puns! ;-)

I say, Let the Left keep on fighting with another. The more that they keep fighting the better chances the right has at booting out a huge number of Democratic politicians in the next election.

The increasing apathy is going to be helpful because if they pass this healthcare crap we've a lot of work to do to pull this country back from the brink ... if we even can.
