The Speaker of the House sits behind the President of the United States at the State of the Union. She mumbles. She mutters. She stares. She refuses to clap or stand for all manner of American heroes in the gallery. In the end, after prepping the text of the speech with little tears, with all the pettiness of a defiant five-year-old having a temper tantrum, she stands and ostentatiously tears the speech in half.
Meanwhile, in New Hampshire, the Democrats swarm to a cranky 78-year old socialist who vows free everything, with billionaires finally getting their long-overdue comeuppance.
Out in Hollywood, left-wing actor, Joaquin Phoenix accepted his Best Actor Oscar by saying this:
“We feel entitled to artificially inseminate a cow and when she gives birth, we steal her baby, even though her cries of anguish are unmistakable. And then we take her milk that’s intended for her calf and we put it in our coffee and our cereal.”
Note well the plea for babies of cows – but silence on the abortion of human babies.
As noted by Robert Stacy McCain over at The American Spectator even MSNBC’s liberal Chris Matthews is alarmed at the far-left turn of his party.
“We need look no further than the reliably partisan Chris Matthews at reliably partisan MSNBC. A former speechwriter for Jimmy Carter who served as chief of staff to former Democratic House Speaker Tip O’Neill, Matthews reached a nadir of despondency after Biden’s debacle last week in Iowa. In a panel discussion following Friday night’s debate in New Hampshire, Matthews went on a rant against socialism, recalling his Cold War-era visits to Vietnam and Cuba: ‘Being there, I’ve seen what socialism is like. I don’t like it, OK? It’s not only not free, it doesn’t freaking work. It just doesn’t work.’
As his fellow MSNBC panelists looked aghast, Matthews continued, saying that if ‘the Reds had won the Cold War, there would have been executions in Central Park, and I might have been one of the ones getting executed, and certain other people would be there cheering, OK?’”
Perhaps too late for his party, but Chris gets it at last. (Memo to Chris? It was Ronald Reagan who won the Cold War – with every Democrat of the day fighting to stop him.)
McCain also points to this piece over at Axios by Mike Allen in which Allen says of the last week:
“This was the worst week for Democrats since Donald Trump’s election-night shocker of 2016.”
Taken all together and it is crystal clear that the Democrats are collectively having a nervous breakdown. Whether it’s the petulant Pelosi shredding a State of the Union speech that celebrated all manner of American heroes or a plea for baby cows in Hollywood or the Bernie triumph in New Hampshire or longtime partisan Chris Matthews angrily riffing about executions in Central Park had the Cold War turned out differently, what Americans are concluding in their own quiet fashion is that in their guts, they realize the Democrats are going nuts.
And oh yes. There’s this headline from Fox about the New Hampshire results:
Trump’s New Hampshire vote dwarfs tallies of past incumbents Obama, Bush; points to November wave
Put another way?
The Left-wing crack-up is underway.
