The Spoiled Brats and Sore Losers of the Democratic Party

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?
