It can be said, and rightfully so, that the liberal left has taken on an attitude of vindictiveness, never before seen.
With every disappointing loss in an election, the hatred, and vitriol they express just illustrate the ever-increasing level of desperation they feel.
Whenever liberals talk about those on the conservative right, who disagree with them, they use terms that one would use to describe the most vile and wicked villain imaginable and not a person who simply holds a different opinion.
Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh made some very poignant observations about liberals in his Tuesday broadcast that may explain, to a large degree, what the liberal left has been unable to recognize about themselves.
As recounted in Breitbart News:
Tuesday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh pointed out the mood of the Democratic Party, which he described as resentful and unhappy, and noted liberal comedians are “consumed by hatred.”
This combination of negative emotions according to Limbaugh has made the Democratic Party “the largest hate group” in the country.
Partial transcript as follows (courtesy of RushLimbaugh.com):
“Let me tell you something, folks. There is an inescapable observation and conclusion, and it is this.
You have to look very hard — and you have to spend a long time looking — to find a genuinely happy or content left-wing political person. Whether they’re an activist or not. If they’re engaged in any way, shape, manner, or form of politics, they’re not happy, no matter what. When they elected Obama, they got angrier. They got more enraged. After every success they have, nothing is ever enough. No amount much success ever makes them happy
Every success they have seems to tell them how little they’ve actually done and how much more there is and how deeply resentful of that they are. The bottom line is: You just don’t encounter happy, laughing liberals. Even their comedians are consumed by hatred. The Democrat Party’s become the largest hate group in this country. Even their comedians are angry and enraged, and that suffices as comedy. I think it’s one of the reasons why left-wing comics have become primary sources of news for other left-wing liberals.
So there’s never any happiness, there never is any contentment. You don’t see any real laughter. You just see a constant level of rage — and I’m telling you, it isn’t healthy. Talk about sustainable? That cannot be sustained. A healthy mind and heart cannot be sustained by the degree of rage and hatred that we see in the American left today. You have to ask: Why don’t their successes make them happy? Look at what they’ve done in the area of marriage. They’ve totally upended it.
They have succeeded in not just redefining a word that has stood for however many number of years — tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions of years — that humans have been plodding and walking the earth. And even after they succeed with this, they get angry. They don’t ever seem satisfied. It’s the most amazing thing. And we’re all paying the price for it, this constant rage, this constant anger. They lose elections, and it is taken as one of the most outrageous things that could happen.”
Rush has always been very astute in sizing up what liberals are thinking and why they do what they do.
Even when liberals get their way, it doesn’t make them happy, only more determined to shove their contempt down the throats of anyone daring to disagree with them.
At this point, someone needs to ask why? For what purpose?
Democrat politicians have whipped their liberal base into a frenzy in order to win elections and when they don’t win, then violence becomes justified in their minds.
