The Regressive Left is inherently reactive. That’s what ultimately sets them apart from actual left-wing progressives like Tim Pool, Lucas Lynch, and Sargon. The left has been sucked dry of independent thought, and they aren’t able to come up with any new ideas now that their progressive handlers have immersed themselves in identity politics and intersectional ideology.
And no, I don’t believe that the Democratic leadership subscribes to an iota of what they preach. People like Hillary and Obama are tacticians — not NPCs — and labeling them as such isn’t productive in the least.
The Dems are sitting on a powder keg, playing with matches. The blue checkmarks, the #resisters, the Democratic Socialists — you know, the actual NPCs — they have been so thoroughly indoctrinated that they are just as likely to turn and bite any of their handlers for deviating from the social programming as they are the people they’ve been conditioned to hate.
And that’s what we’re seeing now, whenever these young “Justice Democrats” (AOC, Omar, Tlaib) openly criticize — even threaten — senior Dems. When popular opposition to Nancy Pelosi reaches the point that her own people have to consider removing her. When the blue check marks and their followers begin to turn on the Democratic leadership, claiming (even now) that they are either too centrist or not radical enough.
And I think the Dems are finally starting to realize what they’ve unleashed. Have you seen Nancy Pelosi? She looks terrible. I imagine she must be an anxious mess, trying to simultaneously appease the traditional Democratic voter bloc and deal with Trump, all while fully aware that there are people within her own party — and a ravenous horde at its outskirts — that would like nothing more than to tear her to pieces.
It’s almost enough to make me feel sorry for her.
