Hate Motivates The Left’s Thirst For Power

Written by Bill Thomas on October 31, 2019

Socrates once said, “From the deepest desires often come the deadliest hate.”  Though nearly 2700 years early, the ancient Athenian philosopher accurately pegged the current Democrat party and her media allies. The Left’s thirst for power is driven by raw, naked hatred of President Trump and all who support him.

The Left’s hatred has forced them into some awkward and unthinkable positions. Upon the death of Islamic State leader and terrorist Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, The Washington Post referred to him as an “austere religious scholar” in an initial headline for his obituary. That’s hard to fathom. The paper received almost immediate criticism but continued to push ahead.

Max Boot, a Never Trump columnist and pundit, took issue with President Trump calling Baghdadi “a coward.” In his column, he mocked Trump for saying Baghdadi was whimpering and crying and seemed to attribute something to him by stating, “The assertion that Baghdadi died as a coward was, in any case, contradicted by the fact that rather than be captured, he blew himself up.” Boot and the paper have since modified the story because it left the impression Boot thought Baghdadi to be something other than a coward.

It’s right to retract these comments. They are abhorrent, especially to the family of Kayla Mueller, the young woman raped and killed while held by Baghdadi and ISIS. The mission to get Baghdadi was appropriately named for her. However, retractions and corrections cannot mask the true feelings of those on the Left. They would rather spin the horrific life of a terrorist than give one ounce of credit, praise or thanks to President Trump.

The Left so resents President Trump’s 2016 win, that they’ll do anything to end his presidency. They initially tried to get faithless electors to vote against him after the November 2016 election, but that failed. Then, they tried to nail Trump for collusion with Russia. Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page and Fusion GPS all did their best with the fake Steele dossier, but the truth was always “there was never any there there.” 

Seething with anger, the Left then turned to Robert Mueller. More than two years and twelve million dollars later, the Democrats and the media had nothing.

Anger morphed into hate and drove the Democrats literally and figuratively into the basement where Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) concocts what they all hope will be articles of impeachment that will slay the presidency of the people’s champion. He literally operates in a basement room at the Capitol. Regular House members are not allowed to attend and the only information that comes from the basement is what Schiff leaks himself.

Schiff and his band of merry men are desperately trying to cull something from witnesses that he can fashion into the latest Democrat idol; impeachment. It’s interesting there is little interest in the whistleblower anymore. Could it be that Schiff isn’t so anxious about this person because he and/or his staff had contact with him?

To regular people, this seems like much ado about nothing. We can read. Those who are interested and inclined to do so, have read they summary transcript of the call. The media and the Democrats are lying when they connect the “favor” with looking into the Biden. That is not true. They also lie when they assert there is a quid pro quo. There was none. The Ukrainian president has testified he felt no pressure.

So, what is all this about? Why is there supposed to be a vote this week to legitimize a trumped-up impeachment inquiry against Trump?  The answer is clear. The Democrats and their media lackeys want power back. They lust for that power and, as Socrates surmised, have allowed that lust to manifest in hate. They hate Trump. They hate Trump staffers. They hate Trump supporters.

What do we do? We have to fight and win at the ballot box. 2020 cannot be a repeat of 2018. The soul of our nation is at stake. The Left will use every dirty, lying trick known to man. We win when we are active and involved. Haters will hate, but they can’t keep America from being great.
