Enlightenment! Another realization why poli-blogging is such a problem for me right now. It’s because “the Left” is so infuriating. So enragingly, “Hulk smash!” infuriating.
Given their current behavior, it doesn’t just seem stupid to engage them. It also feels…wrong. Immoral, even. It feels like the only proper response is to administer vicious punches to the nose. And occasionally the larynx.
Let’s say you had to plow a field in order to feed your family, and all you have is an ornery mule. With your loved ones on the line, how much effort would you spend trying to reason with the critter?
“If we don’t get this field planted we’re gonna go hungry.”
“Seriously. We could starve.”
“Listen, the lives of my kids depend on us getting to work!”
“Also, if we don’t address the national debt our economy is doomed.”
I submit that arguing with a 21st Century leftist is no different than arguing with a mule. It doesn’t matter that in theory the human is susceptible to reason. Vast, never-ending evidence shows that it never ever happens.
And notice how their tenor is changing. Obama, Holder, Spike Lee, and all the media are now racial war-mongering. The leftists were pretty good-tempered a few years ago…because they were getting their way. Now they’re not, and like a stubborn mule they’re trying to hurt us.
The way to deal with stubborn animals is not with reason or a placating tone or, God forbid, a carrot.
You need a stick. You need an oak 2×4 and the will to use it. Spike Lee needs a beat down, not a talking to.
I’m actually starting to feel sinful for responding to leftist shrieks. It’s like I’m bickering with a mule while children starve to death.
