There really isn’t a better way to describe the Left than with that term right there.
They have clearly gone off the deep end, so much so that certain Leftist mouthpieces are talking about literally locking up or even EXECUTING people simply for being Conservatives or even suspected of supporting Trump.
And that’s what’s so troublesome. See, you don’t even have to actually be on the Right to be targeted by the Left anymore. You simply have to disagree with them to be labeled a fascist, a Nazi, or a racist.
In fact, if you pay attention to the news, you’ll see examples of this on an almost daily basis. Centrists and even Liberals who have some centrist ideas are labeled and attacked by people on the Left simply for not toeing the extremist line.
For instance, take the case of a woman in DC who was surrounded by BLM protestors at a restaurant. They tried to intimidate her into raising her fist in solidarity for the “movement” in one of the most fascistic displays of activism we’ve seen yet on American soil. Thing is, this was a woman who had marched with BLM on several occasions, but she felt it wasn’t right to be coerced and threatened into supporting the protest, so she refused.
These people tried to intimidate her, called her names, and threatened her—and all the while she was on their side, and had even gone out and supported BLM. But in the moment, none of that mattered. She refused to throw up a Black Power Fist, and the mob treated her like an enemy.
That’s why we’re calling them “unhinged.” They have no grasp on reality, their sanity is slipping, and even their own are now targets…and they’re only getting worse by the day.
The King of The Unhinged
If you want even MORE proof about the Left’s dangerous trajectory, look no further than former sportscaster and current political pundit Keith Olbermann.
Olbermann was once a VERY popular sportscaster for ESPN, but he decided to bow out and join the ranks of Fox Sports for a short time. Then, once Rupert Murdoch fired him, Olbermann slid over to MSNBC for several years until flagging ratings got him the boot from that network too.
Olbermann has since had few stints back with ESPN, but he recently departed the network again, this time so he could dedicate himself to spouting lies and venom at anybody on the Right…especially Donald Trump.
On Thursday, Olbermann reappeared in the public eye with a diatribe against Trump, his supporters, and a host of others that needs to be watched to be believed.
Here’s the video:
Did you listen to what he said?
“[Trump], and his enablers, and his supporters, and his collaborators, and the Mike Lees and the William Barrs … and the Mike Pences, and the Rudy Giulianis, and the Kyle Rittenhouses, and the Amy Coney Barretts must be prosecuted and convicted and removed from our society while we try to rebuild it and to rebuild the world Trump has destroyed by turning it over to a virus.”
Prosecuted and REMOVED from our society?
Why would any of these people (save for Kyle Rittenhouse) be prosecuted for ANY reason—especially Amy Coney Barrett?
Prosecuted for WHAT? Olbermann doesn’t even allege that a crime has been committed!
Removed from society?
While this rant was just a single incident, it’s indicative of the dangerous road that the Left is going down.
This is the actual fascism that the Left portends to be against.
Calling for people to be “prosecuted and convicted and removed from society” simply because they support Trump or disagree with the Left’s agenda is authoritarian and dictatorial.
This is why we can’t afford to let the Left win. Not in November, not in any election going forward…
Until they realize how extreme their views have become, we’ll never have a calm and civil discussion on what’s best for our country. In the meantime, Olbermann and his ilk need to be sent to the metaphorical corner to think about what they’ve done.
After all, that’s the only way to deal with belligerent children.
