The absolute mania that we are experiencing on the left side of the American political spectrum was once entertaining. It is now simply alarming.
The democratic party began a meltdown in November 2016 that continues to this day. From the very moment that Hillary Clinton was sent packing, in a result so shocking that she hadn’t even prepared a concession speech, the left was mutating before our very eyes.
Soon, radical leftist began exerting their social justice on the world at large, brutally enforcing their version of the First Amendment in places like Berkeley, California.
Then, when that wasn’t enough, Kathy Griffin shows up with the dog whistle to end all dog whistles in the form of a decapitated President Trump just 14 days before James T. Hodgkinson attempts to assassinate the entire GOP charity baseball team.
Now, as this story arc continues to roll toward madness, the left is now attempting to rewrite the rules of our nation’s electoral process after Hillary Clinton couldn’t win in 2016.
Desperate to bring the Tyranny of the Majority to our representative democracy, on the first day Democrats assumed control of the House of Representatives, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) submitted a bill to kill the electoral college.
“In two presidential elections since 2000, including the most recent one in which Hillary Clinton won 2.8 million more votes than her opponent, the winner of the popular vote did not win the election because of the distorting effect of the outdated Electoral College,” Cohen said in a press release. “Americans expect and deserve the winner of the popular vote to win office. More than a century ago, we amended our Constitution to provide for the direct election of U.S. Senators. It is past time to directly elect our President and Vice President.”Advertisement - story continues below
Democrat frustration over losing the presidency when they won the most votes is certainly justified. But it is also their own fault. If these triggered snowflakes would get over their Red State prejudices and dare to live amongst us, that influence might flip enough states. But they refuse to. These snobby bigots find Middle America icky, so they cower together in coastal and big city bubbles.
You know what they say; if you can’t beat ’em, change the rules.
Well, at least that’s what they say over on the left.
