The Spoiled Brats and Sore Losers of the Democratic Party

Updated on April 5, 2019

I’m Going to Take My Ball and Go Home!

There was always that one kid back in elementary school who was a sore loser. If he (I use this pronoun for simplicity) couldn’t be in control of the situation, then he made sure that no one else would be allowed to be happy or continue to participate in the game. As a way of punishing those who are unwilling to accept his way of doing things, he would end the game by taking the ball (whether it belonged to him or not) and leaving. This meant that his desires and opinions were far more important than anyone else.

The expression “I’m going to take my ball and go home” is symbolic of an extremely immature person who can’t get his way, and therefore no longer participates in the activity at hand. This might be a game, a conversation, a project, or a political election. What we are seeing in politics today is an entire group of people (the democrats) who lost the election in 2016, and have been attempting to take their collective balls and go home ever since.

First, they tried to argue that the rules of the game were unfair (e.g., the Electoral College), which they wanted to change after the game was played, so to speak. They wanted to throw out the election results because they didn’t like the way the votes were counted. When that didn’t work, they tried to come up with ways to discredit the winner. That work continues to this day, albeit mostly unsuccessful so far. Now that nearly two years have passed, the tantrum has escalated to calls for violence. All that is left is an actual coup d’état.

UPDATE: Since I wrote this, Rosie O'Donnell has publically stated that she wants the military to go to the White House, and remove President Trump. That is an actual call for a military coup, by a well-known individual on television. Some may call it free speech. I call it sedition. And that is how far the left is willing to go.

UPDATE #2: Jane Curtin said while appearing as a guest on CNN’s live New Year’s Eve (2018-2019) special that her New Year's Resolution was "to make sure that the Republican Party dies.” There are a few organizations out there with views and beliefs with which I disagree. That doesn't mean I will make a New Year's resolution to see them dead. That's not even a little funny. And pointing out someone else's bad behavior is NOT a viable justification for your vile comments. That is just childish (e.g., HE started it!).

UPDATE #3: The Mueller investigation has wrapped up without finding links between Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and interference by the Russians. Mueller spent a total of 674 days, and produced a 400 page report at an expense in excess of 25 million dollars to the American taxpayer, and found no collusion. Once again the Democrats are losing their minds. You might think that at least one of them might say “oops, so sorry.” No, not even close. Now they have simply shifted to other modes of attack. Again, it’s like the bully on the playground who doesn’t win at baseball. He just switches to basketball without acknowledging the defeat, and simultaneously starts talking about how “lame” baseball is to play.


The Democrats

There are many Democrats that are fine, upstanding citizens. I don’t want to paint with too broad of a brush. On the other hand, there are some particularly egregious examples of narcissism and hate. Let’s take a look at a few individuals.

Hillary Clinton

Here is what Hillary Clinton said recently:

"You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about," Clinton said in an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour. "That's why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that's when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength."

Returning to my playground example above, let me break that down for you by giving an example. She wanted to play baseball, but you (and the majority of the other kids on the playground) wanted to play football instead. She hates football. She loves baseball, and that’s all she cares about. Everyone should love and respect baseball as much as she does. After all, it’s the only game worth playing. Anyone who wants to play something else is a stupid idiot with no redeemable qualities. She will stand over there in the corner and yell and scream and throw things until we are all playing baseball again. She may even refuse to talk to us until then. If someone asks a question about football, she will immediately change the topic of conversation.

Eric Holder

Here is what Eric Holder said recently:

"Michelle [Obama] always says, you know, ‘When they go low, we go high.’ No. When they go low, we kick them." Holder said. "That’s what this new Democratic Party is about."

In playground terms: If you say bad things about Eric, he could just ignore you and walk away. Or he could defend himself verbally. That would be rising above or going high. It would also be recalling the old saying “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never harm me.” But instead of ignoring you, he plans to double down and do something far worse than you did. If you insult him, he will kick you. If you dare to defend yourself against his kicks, then he will accuse you of assault.

Maxine Waters

Here is what Maxine Waters said recently:

“If you see anybody from that [Trump’s] Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them! And you tell them that they are not welcome, anymore, anywhere."

Here, again, is the playground translation: Remember those kids who wanted to play football when I wanted to play baseball? Well, if you see those dirty rotten football lovers walking home or in a store someplace, gather a bunch of your friends and start yelling and screaming at them. Tell them how stupid they are for not wanting to play baseball. If they are in a store, don’t let them finish buying anything. Make them leave the store and go home. Don’t ever let them feel safe leaving home again!

More Examples

There are many, many more examples. These three, however, paint the picture of what the Democratic Party has become. They are also not above lying to achieve their goals. I don’t know how this is going to play out, but I can only hope that sooner or later this tactic will backfire so much that it will be abandoned. Until then, hang on for dear life. It’s going to get worse before it gets better.

Have the Democrats gone too far?

    They don't count strikes in the game they play, do they?

    "Whether!" I like that Brad! Lol

    Take them out to the blame game

    Take them out to the crowds

    Of Never Trumper nuts and psycho hacks

    I'll be happy if they never come back

    They just loot, loot, loot from the treasury

    If they don't win they defame

    For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out,

    At the old blame game.

    You are welcome. And you are probably right about not all democrats, I would say all anti Trumpers without regard to their party.

    Basketball, that is a good analogy.

    Thanks Brad and T - I added an update. And yes - I used a sports analogy!

    Extra innings will continue till Nov 2020.

    I hadn't thought about extra innings for Carolyn's analogy.

    I guess it could also be one of those games that were stopped because of the 'whether'

    Whether they could replay the game because of the Mueller investigation flooding the field with imaginary floods.

    Sorry I got carried away.

  • tsadjatko profile image

    9 months ago from now on

    Brad, ain't that the truth!!! Your baseball analogy is excellent!

    Now even though they lost the Democrats want to take the game into extra innings with their ideas of what is in the Mueller report. Little do they know the full Mueller report is nothing but strap for the Democrats revealing how this hoax got started and all those who played their part in this silent coup!

  • bradmasterOCcal profile image

    You can add the current Mueller Report and the denial from the democrats. They created the games, stacked the field with their players, their umpire and didn't allow the other team to get at bat.

    Even with all of that in their favor, Casey (Mueller) struck out. No hits, no runs but plenty of errors. Now, they want another do over.

    They had their practice game at the judge Kavanaugh hearing, and those investigations were playoff games and they lost. And just like the Mueller game they are still whining.

    That playground example is a very good analogy, Carolyn. Immature children also have a way of reneging on their own agreements when they lose, such as Nancy Polosi and Chuck Schumer did. They both originally wanted a wall on the southern border.

    They talked about it and agreed to it when it’s served them well, but lack of action shows that they never intended to do it. Even worse, once they lost they chose to take the ball and go home, as the analogy goes, without a desire to help protect the citizens at all.

    Since when has Hillary Clinton ever stood for civility? The woman doesn't even have morals, much less civility. And as for Michelle Obama "going high?" That's funny. You could have fooled me.

    I'm rather weary of the whole lot of them. Your playground analogy is apt. Wish we could tell the hole lot of them to "go to their room, and stay there" until they can get some manners. But of course, we can't do that. We just have to suffer through all their nonsense and vote for those who actually love this country and act like it. (not always easy to do)

    It’s amazing that this is not more of the narrative within the media sources, I think we all know why though (democratic agenda.) Thank you for being one of the voices of reason when it comes to this “sensitive” (not for me) issue that we must discuss further to stop the younger generation from just believing what is fed to them from the mass media.

    Carolyn. Cochran just spouted a veiled attempt at pointing to others bad behavior to justify her idols' bad behavior. A trite and false liberal tactic liberals use often to avoid admitting they are just wrong.

    She doesn't know you at all or she'd have known you aren't going to fall for liberal playbook tactics, keep telling it like it is Carolyn!

    Thanks for your comment to Kathleen.

    The democrat supporters on Hp are what I call drive by commenters.

    Imagine Kathleen in a car, and you standing on the curb, they shout out and then they disappear around the corner.

    Your comment on Rosie O'Donnell has publicly stated that she wants the military to go to the White House, and remove President Trump is a perfect example of democrats sour grapes. Rosie has no grounds to make those statements just like Kathleen has no grounds to make her statement.

    They all have the same basis for their statements. Hillary Clinton lost the presidency twice and now he must pay for that win.

    The democrats are a unilateral moral group, only they are moral and just while any and all opposition to them is immoral and unjust.

    If I am not on topic please delete.

    Kathleen Cochran,

    Interesting comment. Reminds me of how Hillary always changes the subject when asked about Bill's sexual misconduct. “When you don’t have the facts on your side, just change the subject.”

    That's not to say that the Republicans are without problems. It's just not the topic of this article. As for the number of lives "they" have cost us . . . I have no idea how to address that. And, again, it's completely off topic.

    Such an interesting read and already with interesting comments. Thinking the statements we hear through is crucial and breaking them down into terms from the world of the playground is quite useful in examining them. I'll be back to read more comments and to see if you decide to add more statements as some suggest.

    I hope for the opposite, I hope the voices of the more extreme continue to take center stage, and gain control of the Party and its platform.

    I believe for our Republic, and our Freedoms (what ones we have left) to be maintained, the Democratic Party must fracture, and the 'moderates' must move away from them, and realize that the only party remaining that supports their interests, and their continued freedom, is the Republican party candidates.

    The sooner it is fully accepted by Americans, the better our chances of retaining our national independence, our freedoms, and our way of life (things like opportunity and upward mobility).

    I wrote a brief article (Hub) the other day regarding China's Social Credit, anyone concerned about where our future is heading should read it... if Democrats regain full control (as they had when Obama was first elected) I believe that is the future they would move our country hastily into.

    I enjoyed reading this article.

    The democrats say that when they win control they will all vote for open borders! The march of thousands of migrants from Honduras is on the way to the US.

    You should quote Nancy Pelosi, and Feinstein.


  • tsadjatko profile image

    Carolyn, You should add another answer to your poll:

    ___ Yes, and they need to keep going at it cause they’ve shown their true face and we need more truth from them.

    Spoiled Brats and sore losers?

    They’ll settle for you to characterize them as Spoiled Brats and sore losers which may be true for the rank and file Democrat but make no mistake their leadership is just evil!

    While I don't want to think the worst of them, you make a compelling case regarding the Dems. I fear for the future of America, unless of course more moderate voices can be heard.

    Another easy to read and informative article Carolyn.

    The 'broad brush' that you note would essentially label Democrats as the Anti-American party, very simple to understand their positions on matters when you factor that in. They could care less about Americans, what they want, or what they need.

    Of course, its not that simple, the Democrats are a collaboration (or Quilt) of young college indoctrinated socialist-feminist-extremists, much older-generation Communists, Civil Rights Activists with their views on America and the world still stuck in the 60s and 70s.

    And then you have the more fringe components, the activists for Islam and Sharia Law, the Anarchists, the illegal immigrant (Sanctuary City) open border activists that right now the Democrats are trying to hide so that the more moderate Americans forget about them (out of sight is out of mind, or so they hope).

    Democrats are essentially the anti-American, anti-Nation, anti-Middle-Class party... it is what they have become.

    Twenty years or more ago, they were indeed the 'Workers Party', they supported Unions and the upward mobility of the Middle Class, now they are the enemy of the 'working class' and the sooner hard working Americans wake up to this reality, the better for all of us.

    Thanks for reading and commenting. I agree with many of your points. I still hold out hope that the Democrats will see the light and turn away from socialism. There are many Dems who are not on board with recent developments.

    The Democratic Party is no longer the Democratic Party! They are now, "SOCIALISTIC"! They want to open our borders to any and all that might want to come here! It doesn't matter to them that most, if not all, of these so-called immigrants, have absolutely nothing to offer. Some come here to change our way of life to fit what they want! We are expected to teach school in Spanish, we are expected to honor the Muslim religion, "BUT" cannot teach the 10 Commandments. Some are plain and simply radicals with only one agenda, DESTROY AMERICA! Either way, they should not be allowed to enter! We cannot care for many of our own people, "WHY" should we take on the burden of those that don't have the courage to make changes in their own countries but want us to change ours to fit them??

    ALSO, "WHY" are honest hard-working Americans faced with the "RACE" card at every turn? The black citizens of our country have held every type of political office and every type of job open to everyone else! "YET", still, we hear "RACISM" shouted to the Heavens every single day. It was the white liberal vote that put President Obama in office the 1st. time and kept him there for a 2nd. term. No African Amercian citizen alive today has ever been a slave AND no white American citizen alive today has ever owned a slave! Therefore, no American citizen owes any other Amercian citizen anything whatsoever!
