What’s next, defunding police and then the fire departments? Abolishing common sense is on the docket. Laughing is no longer an option.
The Rolling Stones had a hit with Sympathy for the Devil but what we are witnessing here in live time is sympathy for the left. And it is just as bad.
As the song goes, please allow me to introduce them. First they are not all bad. What I’ve personally seen helps me understand that. What we think of the Left is all who get behind these radical ideas, creating the mob, though I don’t think that is entirely fair.
I’ve seen a lot of dumb when it comes to the Left. There are plenty in the movement who are not as whacky as AOC or as radical as the Weather Underground. They are dupes.
Here is the problem. I am trying to be careful about generalizing too far. Many people who support these radical Left are now regular people, I argue, who may be naïve and don’t know any better. However, these are people who want to go along with every new idea the Left spouts as the latest great cause of popular commotion. A feel good palooza.
It’s a simple idealism in their mind, like the Obama campaign, that they just want to believe in and belong to. They desperately want to be a part of it for whatever reasons. And belong they will, if it means being duped and used by these radicals.
Not all crazy ideas are good ones.
Now what we see with the latest defunding police idea is more than meets the eye, as nothing does happen in isolation. It is cutting cops and putting communists in charge.
Would all these duped Leftists endorse those goals? Probably not; but it is the latest feel good idea that makes no practical sense, which only requires one to believe in it and keep on believing. Then just chant the cute phrases. So in other words, it is a faith-based movement requiring your submission to the will of radical Marxists. Lockstep or lose.
Yes, the craziest really are running the asylum but they don’t do it alone. Remember that. Sympathy for Communists works its magic. Watching it can be almost as hypnotic.
