The Dark, Dark World of the Democrats

In America, we have two major political parties representing two entirely different philosophical viewpoints. These viewpoints provide opposing perspectives on almost every aspect of an individuals’ or our society’s governance: political, economic, social, academic and even the spiritual realm. As events have unfolded since the 2008 election, more attention has been paid to political parties and their messaging than ever before.  The distinction or contrast between them is greater than most of us ever imagined, and the huge contrast between the two major parties is the result of the intensive, and unfortunately, successful efforts of Leftists, a group of people who perceive almost everything about life – from the dark side.

The election of 2008 brought this to the front burner simply because the radicalism of the Democrats’ Left can no longer be hidden or disguised.  For 2 ½  years, our side of the political aisle has been bombarded by a vitriol and virulence most of us had never before experienced.  The 8-year attack on former Pres. George Bush was in preparation for what they planned to unleash once the Democrats controlled both Houses of Congress and the presidency.  Nothing we have seen has lessened, nor restrained them.  In fact, we can expect more.

What drives these people?  Vassar Bushmills wrote this recently, “What drives these useful idiots is just one thing, hatred.”  He has also attributed these types of personalities to their potty training and childhoods of never being told “no.”  I’ve decided that there should be a Democrat Misery Index, similar to the Consumer Confidence Index.  Monitoring this statistic ought to be an eye opener, especially if you poll Republicans as a control.  Almost everything about the Democrats stems from anger, an anger that takes them into the realm of hatred.  Every viewpoint they express is sourced from a perspective of entitlement that someone done them wrong, or someone has something they “shouldn’t.”  If one spends all their time thinking dark thoughts and living on the dark side, they can only remain unhappy. Nothing will satisfy them,  as we have seen.

Barack Obama, with his mantra of hope, actually reveals a world devoid of hope; he and the Democrats have little comprehension of what hope means because built into the definition of hope is the concept of optimism and prospects for the future.  Yet, to the Democrats, the means to achieving their ends is taking or destroying something or someone else. They live with a world view of pessimism.  This world view is destructive, and only promotes more of the same.  It can build nothing. Vitriol spewed by union thugs promotes further anger and hatred, and Black Panthers allowed to intimidate voters with baseball bats by standing in front of a polling place projects hatred.  Anger and hatred – fomented by a political party, toward more than half of the American people; where will this end?

I ask that question because none of this is going to lessen in the coming months.  The election of Barack Obama in 2008 seemed to embolden those of the Left who seek to further their radical causes, and destruction of decency in America in general.  In 2008, not only did we lose control of the three branches of government, but we handed control of all regulatory agencies over to the Left, including the Justice Dept, Dept of Education, Dept of Energy, etc.  We’ve certainly seen the toll on the nation from this. Until the election of November, 2010, nothing was able to stop them.  If anything, they are more driven than ever before to destroy America and the heart of her people.

Take note of the word Destroy.  It is the word best used to describe and associate with the Democrats.  Almost everything they touch turns to ashes; they wouldn’t agree, but it is true.  The programs of Johnson’s Great Society destroyed the black family, and is making vast inroads into the white family.  It’s not hard to check the statistics on women having children out of wedlock, or homes with no fathers.  But, worse than that is the destruction of human life by the abortion industry.  What is there about unfettered abortion that is constructive?  Absolutely nothing.  We’ve destroyed over 52 million potential innocent lives, generations of Americans who never had a chance to live in this great country.  How does the destruction of unborn human beings make for a better world, or a life of hope?  It can’t, it destroys the very soul of a nation.

Let’s look at the attack on faith in this country by the Democrats, another effort to destroy, and make no make mistake, that is their goal.  Pay attention to the lawsuits brought by the ACLU to make sure there are no roadside crosses, memorials to a tragic loss of life in a car accident.  Or note the removal of decades-old memorials to fallen soldiers such as the Mojave Cross.  That case went all the way to the Supreme Court, and our side won, only to have the cross stolen by vandals.  Recently, the DOD succumbed to the demands brought by an atheist organization that Air Force chaplains teaching a course on “Just War” could not read scriptures. Military chaplains are being increasingly restricted in the practice of their faith.  What good are they then to the troops?  The Left doesn’t care, as long as they can advance their agenda to remove God from our institutions. They do this in order to command and control the people; the people cannot have God in place of government.

Ironically, or tragically, the methods and agenda of the Left actually promote increasing disparity among the people instead of pulling them together or upward.  Encouraging dependency pulls everyone down, but the Left won’t acknowledge this, as it would mean the end of class warfare as a weapon. The political rhetoric and hate speech we’ve seen will continue and we will have to face it and combat it. The malignant media will do everything they can to make sure the agenda of the Left succeeds.  While politicians from our side are polite and reasoned, it does us no good to be too mannerly while our country is being destroyed.  There are ways to call out the Left for their lying and hatred, and still be civil.

The Democrats will project everything negative and ugly onto our side. You must expect that.  Their world view is from the dark side, it causes a bloodlust of anger and resentment.  You could give them everything and it still would not be enough.  The cup is never filled for these people, as their perception of the world is that everything that is wrong in their lives is the fault of someone, somewhere.  They live on a bane of, “if only…”

Conservatives live with an appreciation and gratitude of life.  Traditional, freedom loving Americans have the worldview of a cup at least half-filled, and if they want more – they work for it.  They demand of themselves vs demanding of others.  I try not to be a preachy person, but I also believe that many traditional Americans, believe that a Being greater than themselves exists in the Universe, a fixed Star.  The Founding Fathers believed this as well; they also established this country based on principles that, if followed, would keep the nation from the darkness.

This bible verse speaks to how hard the Left will fight and why.  John 3:20:  “Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed.”  We cannot speak of others’ souls, but we can speak of the heart.  This battle is one for the heart of America.

  1. How appropriate to use a Frazetta painting titled “The Death Dealer” to describe the lib’s. Frazetta’s works always evoke very powerful visuals. Much like the stories of Robert E. Howard’s main character who was associated with these paintings, the country faces an enemy beyond repentance. As in those stories your imagination took you to places sometimes beyond the actual text itself.

    From my observations, the similarities between this comparison to Frazetta’s painting and the bad guys in the Conan stories strongly relate to the Lib’s.

    Their actions have taken us to new places where a lack of imagination on our part will most certainly leave a stone unturned, under which they will have buried some other arcane legislation.

    Insidious is the word that comes to mind, when attempting to describe them.

    A very nice work Lady P.

    • I doubt they will ever have a revelation such as Robert Oppenheimer had when the first atom bomb exploded; “…now I am become Death [Shiva], the destroyer of worlds…”.

      Such an awakening will most likely never occur with them.

  2. I have long suspected that, that to most libDems, in the recesses of their reptilian brains, Republicans = Parents or Authority Figures in their early lives. So their hatred is usually unbounded and irrational. THus they hated daddy Bush, GWB, and any authority figure Repub in the WH which would include the likes of Perry, Bachmann, Palin or Cain. So far as the content of their demands, we must basically ignore them as we would a 5 year old’s tantrum, that’s all it is. PR wise we must be in proactive mode everyday, defending good policy every way and in multiple media. GWB’s second term problem is he reversed those two.

    • Thanks for your input, cj. LibDems seem to be people who do not want to be told no. Hollywood is filled with them, and they have almost singled-handedly taken down our traditional, moral culture by pushing the envelope.

      Our side must speak up though, because it is the insidious means as well as the outright in your face that we have to rebut and refute.

  3. Good article, Lady P. And I really like the choice of artwork you’ve used.

    Personally, I still think a lot of the actions we’re seeing from the left stems from the fact that they have an all-consuming desire for power and control that has corrupted their hearts and minds to the point that they really don’t care about right versus wrong, good vs. evil any more. The end justifies the means in their own mind. They live in this self-deceitful cocoon of how good they are, how right they are, how wise they are, etc., and from their viewpoint, that goodness, rightness, and wisdom should never be questioned. Other people should simply conform to their way of thinking and what they want all the time. This satisfies their desire for power and control. As long as their desire for power and control is met, they’re at least somewhat rational.

    But when that desire for power and control is thwarted,they cross the line between rational and irrational in the blink of an eye, and they become filled with malice and the spirit of vengeance, which is why they spill such a poisonous hatred and vitriol on everything and everyone they come into contact with.

    They absolutely despise people with discerning minds who see that lust for power and control for exactly what it is. Speaking the truth to power, as the saying goes, is taken personally as questioning their status, their power, their goodness and their wisdom, etc. They resent it very badly indeed.

    Getting them to address the issues our nation is facing objectively is going to be next to impossible, because they just don’t want to do that. It would diminish the power they’ve managed to establish so far, by limiting expansion of government, limiting power of government, and reducing dependency on government across our society as a whole.

    Vicious catch-22, isn’t it?

    • So right, lineholder.

      But when that desire for power and control is thwarted,they cross the line between rational and irrational in the blink of an eye, and they become filled with malice and the spirit of vengeance, which is why they spill such a poisonous hatred and vitriol on everything and everyone they come into contact with.

      And this is what we have to concerned about. Not much we can do about their desire for control and power, except return to the people the right for self-governance. But when we thwart the Left, their anger crosses a line. They didn’t expect to see the people rise as they did for 2010, they certainly are going to do everything they can to prevent us succeeding in 2012.

      It is discouraging though, to realize that so many people have been brainwashed by the public education system, and that our side has given way on so many issues, that it will take so much to undo what has been done, let alone stop them now.

  4. “If one spends all their time thinking dark thoughts and living on the dark side, they can only remain unhappy. Nothing will satisfy them, as we have seen.” So true, LP
    Occasionally Limbaugh will make the same point. When he and his staff cut up, there is genuine playfulness and jocularity in it. When you see the hollow-eyed people on MSNBC or CNN or places like that try it, it doesn’t even come off as funny. WE think about Buckley, the wit and one who enjoyed good times and smiles and laughs. We think about the Happy Warrior. We think about GWB when he came into office and showed compassion and good-naturedness to Kennedy and Clinton, when neither of them deserved it.

  5. I think what I find singularly depressing about your post, other than the insightful content, is trying to see the specific pathway to defeating these sick, sick people. I mentally harken back to the old adage “fight fire with fire” but that reduces us to their level. For very personal reasons I am not at all opposed to venturing down into the sewer with a Louisville Slugger, but for many that idea offends their sensibilities. IMO, however, it is their resistance to having their sensibilities offended that is, at the very least, partially responsible for the mess we are in today. Perhaps if some a$$ had been kicked along the way we would not be where we are right now. We can elect all we want, but if we took all 3 branches by this time tomorrow they still would not go away… they would merely find yet another rock under which to hide and from there plot their next return.
    The GOP has always been the “party of Polite” and has never seemed willing to put itself out there in anything approaching a combative manner. This is why even today the D’s are always the ones getting the first acusations out there. Harry Rieid jumps right in with the “Tea Party Downgrade” and absolutely no one stands on the steps of the Capital shouting that he refused to even bring what would have been our saving grace to the floor of the senate. I watch this lack of spunk, as it were, and wonder to myself “where the hell are all of you?”. The GOP best get better at this in a big damned hurry or we are all toast. This is one of many aspects I find appealing about Rick Perry… he seems to be more willing to take it to them than the likes of “my friend accross the aisle” mccain (ask me if hearing that line makes me lose my breakfast). I fear that fighting just at the ballot box will not do the trick… if that were going to work, it should have been started 20 years ago… we are now out of time.

    • Just because I left the door to my mind unlocked didn’t mean I gave you permission to go in there and blab it to all the world, Suzanne. 🙂 But now that you have, the nerves you struck were the “depressing” and “trying to see the specific pathway”.
      I’m sure M. Bushmills and Mme. Penguin would say that this battle/process is going to take a while, even as you and I see events rushing headlong past us….and thus our angst. Probably the fight you want to have may not be just to make everything all better all at once, but to keep the spark of freedom alive and keep all the doors from being shut so that the up-and-comers will still have options.

      • Sorry about the blabbing part, Bob! 🙂
        Would that my desire for a fight had germinated in the altruistic idea of keeping “the spark of freedom alive”. Unfortunately it was born of pure, unadulterated RAGE. I think I mentioned in a comment a while back that despite my best efforts and much prayer I am really very much a scorched earth kind of girl. As such, I want to make them PAY… every last miserable, stinking one of them… hang them on the 6:00 news etc. And it is that pure and truly white-hot rage that would be weilding the previously referenced Louisville Slugger. Unlike many, I am not afraid of anger and actually consider it to be a useful tool.

      • You’re right, Bob, it is a battle/process going forward. And there are definitely discouraging days. Especially when we ourselves, good, honest and decent Americans, are being attacked in the most vile of ways for being who we are. I remember once, Mr. Bushmills wrote a post about that, that sometimes people will dislike you just for who you are. So now we learn to live with that, wear it as a badge of honor, and go forth and fight them. I do believe there are a whole lot of people awake and aware since the 2008 elections…”they ain’t seen nothing yet.”

    • You are right, Suzanne, it is discouraging and finding the way to defeat them, even more so. Probably why I don’t write too often, because my mind has to track into their world, one that is an anathema and foreign to me, and likely most of us. But just when I start thinking of the frustration, and even possible futility, I find myself in the light again. Therein lies the difference between them and us. No matter how dark and dirty they get, we have the ability (new found for some of us) to stand up to it. Something many of us had never done before. And because we know our cause is based on the principles inherent in the founding documents of this nation, that we are to have freedom, we will keep seeking it. It is in our American genes to refuse enslavement; this has been reinforced by the immigrant hordes for the last two centuries. If we are chained, as we are now being chained, then we will resist. The tea party movement is an example of refusing to be enslaved. Nothing I see, even at this early date in the election cycle, shows the Democrats confident about 2012. Desperation is showing.

      As for our side, yes we have a lot of work to do. The big mistake that was made in the 90’s was not getting rid of the Newt Gingrich types who gave away the store. It remained our albatross in 2008 in the form of John McCain.

      Let us tackle what we can, and remain true to our principles. I don’t think our efforts are going to cease or fail.
