The Left Is Still Angry
Even fresh off an election victory, the Left is still bitter, still seething, and still obsessed with Donald Trump.
“We don’t want Biden,” said the sign, “we want revenge!”
A bunch of pro-Trump protesters on Capitol Hill, perhaps? Nope. An unprecedented lockdown and 26,000 National Guardsmen kept the First Amendment firmly under wraps Wednesday in our nation’s capital.
Maybe some of the tens of millions of Americans who still think the election was stolen, or some of those white supremacists in flyover country that Joe Biden warned us about? Nope and nope.
As CBS News reports, “A group of protesters carrying signs against President Joe Biden and police marched in Portland on Inauguration Day and damaged the headquarters of the Democratic Party of Oregon, police said. Some in the group of about 150 people smashed windows and spray-painted anarchist symbols at the political party building.”
Anyone else notice the “against Joe Biden” language used by CBS News? It’s almost as if the editors wanted their readers to think these were Trump supporters. Indeed, the story doesn’t once mention the real culprits: antifa.
Yep, this “mostly peaceful” dissent was brought to us by the boys in black, who pretty much run the disgracefully hard-left enclave of Portland. Another banner helpfully declared, “We are ungovernable.” True that. At least not by the people that Portlanders keep electing.
Footage from intrepid antifa chronicler Andy Ngo shows just how brazen these future Democrats are. What’s most striking is how calmly they go about shattering windows and flipping over occupied vehicles in downtown Portland in broad daylight. Why, it’s as if they figured they didn’t have to worry about local law enforcement at all. But whatever could’ve given them that idea?
Well, maybe harshly worded memos like this:
“To those gathered near the Democratic Party of Oregon Portland Headquarters,” the Portland Police tweeted out: “Members of this group have been observed damaging the building. Anyone who is involved in criminal behavior including: vandalism and graffittiing is subject to arrest or citation.”
Well. And just to make sure they’d struck fear into the hearts of these little rascals, the Portland PD keyboardist followed up with an even sterner warning: “Criminal conduct may subject you to the use of force, including, but not limited to, crowd control agents and impact weapons. Stop damaging the Democratic Party of Oregon Portland Headquarters.”
Got that, antifa? They may use force.
The anger on the Left, though, isn’t limited to antifa. They’re angry everywhere, and the continued existence of one person seems to be the source of it. As Stacey Lennox of PJ Media writes, “One of President Trump’s most amazing skills was building a high-end condo where he lives rent-free in the left’s heads. Whether they are in the corporate media or other cultural institutions, these people are making it clear that the lease is not up. Their team just won an election and now controls Congress and the White House. Yet they are still miserable and seeing President Trump in their fever dreams.”
This feverish state seems to be most pronounced among Hollywood types. Someone named Debra Messing, for example, can’t figure out whether to be angry or frightened. “WOW. #TrumpsNewArmy. The Truth is Chilling,” she tweeted. “We must work together to smoke out the domestic terrorists who want to kill the Democratic Leadership, people of color, jews, muslims, LGBTQ, essential everyone who isn’t white. America is a melting pot. Its what makes us great.”
Whoa, there, Debra. Did you just say, “America is a melting pot”? According to your fellow wokesters, that timeless American expression is now an unacceptable microaggression — and it’s grounds for cancelation.
