During the previous Administration, we saw the Democrat base act as a legion of strident apologists, regardless of Obama and companies’ complicity in actions immoral, unethical and/or unConstituional. We also had a political opposition who invented no end of absurd conspiracies about POTUS’s background, ideology and “true” intentions. (Muslim Kenyan Marxist etc….)
Now, in the current Administration, we have much the same……with one glaring difference: blatant hypocrisy and sycophancy. We’re witnessing an emotionally fellating devotion to one man……..just as was claimed, the Left had found their political messiah…..the “One”, as it was alleged. Shrugging off of national security threats and maligning acts of integrity, in favour of protection of the cult of personality. As much as I have principled reasons for leaving the GOP and moving wholly to the LP…….I don’t think I ever envisioned the Right acting like such…….Leftists.
To be sure, there are wild eyed fantasies of Trump ushering in a regime of Fascism and oppression – fomenting the laughable Leftist movements to “resist”…..
While this behaviour is expected of the Left…..where went the responsibility and accountability on the Right? Was it ever there? If so, will they ever regain it……or are we destined simply to have two sad clowns in this political theatre?
