The Left Has A Death Wish
h/t Instapundit
The left has a deep-seated death wish. By which I don’t mean they’re presenting themselves in the wrong light or whatever, I mean an actually bonafide death wish. They hate themselves, they hate the civilization that created them. They wish both would die.

They try to disguise this, of course, most of all to themselves, hence their endless panics about how Trump is going to put them in camps, or whatever the latest faddish fear is. But it’s there.

You know in the seventies, when Iran declared war on us, took our people as hostage and Jimmy ‐ Smiler ‐ Carter did not immediately pound them into the dirt and sacrificed more of our people in an ill-planned attempt to spring them.

Then there was 9/11. How long did it take for the lefties to go from shocked horror to "we deserved it" or "we deserve this because of how evil we are?"

I know some that made the flip in 24h. And one who started saying the attack didn’t matter anyway, because more people die every week in the highways of America.

And then they turned to worry OBSESSIVELY about "Islamophobia."

Some of my lefty acquaintances went to hold hands around the local mosque to "protect" it. From whom? I don’t know.

Note that they still have not a single bad word to say about Islam. If they judged it as they judge Christianity, they wouldn’t shut up about the way they treat American gays. Pretty much twenty-four seven.

But no. The Jihadis would kill most of the left’s hard-core partisans, and so they love, love, love Islam, the more aggressive the better.

Death Wish.

...Yesterday, we saw yet another manifestation of this. Faced with the murder of a young woman in Texas by an illegal immigrant, the left swung into action asking for more, harder, please.

Elizabeth ‐ Fake Feather bonnet ‐ Warren did the equivalent of saying "but that’s not important right now. The big problem is that they’re separating families at the border and we need to do something about that."

...Who, faced with the murder of a citizen by an illegal immigrant thinks the problem is that we are too harsh on illegal immigrants? Who, but someone with a strong death wish.

She wasn’t alone either. When I said the left swung into action, I mean the left swung into action, in a manner similar to what they did after 9/11.

...What happened to "caring" so much that they regulate how we drive and our medicines and everything so we "can't get hurt"? Whatever happened to "even one is too many?"

Who would ignore the fact that the man was here illegally? That people who come here illegally know they’re breaking the law and that they’ll have to live outside the law here? That the people are willing to do that might be acting out of desperation, sure, but they also have to be comfortable with breaking the law and living outside the law. Does this predispose them to further break the law? H*ll it’s a miracle they don’t all break the law. illegal immigrant killing a woman who is out jogging alone is not a surprise. It’s happened before. Will happen again.

And sure, she might have been killed by one of our home-grown crazies. Of course, she could. But she wasn’t. She was killed by an intruder who had no business being there.

...There is only one explanation for the left’s reaction to these incidents: The left has a death wish.

Now I think about it, it also explains the left’s idolization of Che Guevara, who liked to murder students, black people, gay people ‐ the groups the left claims to favor and many of whom support it ‐ as well, of course, as puppies and kids and other people the left claims to protect.

It explains why they loved Mao, including his skanky poems. Oh, and they thought Lenin and Stalin were great too.

The left has a death wish.

Born in the wealthiest, strongest nation on Earth, one where the poor live like the middle class of other countries (and the rich of many) these crazy people were told that wealth is a finite pie and that if you have excess others must have a lack. And they’re too dumb to figure out the finite pie thing is a ridiculous lie. (No? How much wealth do you think there was in the world in caveman days?)

They feel guilty all the time. They hate themselves, their nation and everything that allows them to be well taken care of. They obsess about this night and day.

They’d eat a bullet, only they’re way too cowardly, so they run after anyone who shows any intent to kill them, idolizing them and begging for death.

They don’t really believe the right in this country wants to kill them. If they did, they’d lick our feet.

Instead, they resent us and hate us because we insist on defending the country and not letting bad guys come in and make it a sh*thole like other sh*tholes. This makes us evil and bad because we don’t want to give away all we have and live in misery or be killed by scum.

This is the real cause of their unhinged hatred of their domestic opponents. And their mad love for murderous foreigners.

The left has a death wish. It wants to commit suicide by criminal. Which would be great if they were only trying to kill themselves.

#3  There are two factions to the left. The politicians want power, the voters have a death wish and vote for the folks most likely to bring that about. I don't see a contradiction.

#2  There's a mechanism in engineering called "negative (or positive) feedback." When a system approaches the limits of it's capabilities, a dose of negative feedback is provided to move it in the "opposite" direction. With positive feedback, the impetus is to move it farther in the dangerous direction, quickly leading to a cloud of smoke and a shower of nuts and bolts. What we're seeing these days is a case of rampant positive feedback. The echo chambers of big Left media, twitter, FB, etc. provide all the feedback required to move behavior farther and farther to toward the failure point.

No they don't. They want you dead so they can take power. The only death wish is against you, by their hand or someone else. You are their enemy, whether you acknowledge it or not.
