I said in my column this morning that Kavanaugh’s impending confirmation didn’t happen “despite” the Democrats launching a full-scale smear, but because of it.
It is, as I said earlier, Newton’s Third Law: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
And this is something Democrats and their Leftist flying monkeys are incapable of comprehending.
You can’t push and push and push some more without expecting pushback.
This is exactly why every Leftist ploy ends up being what I call Operation Backfire.
The unhinged Left always pushes too hard and too far. And then they’re stunned when it blows up in the faces.
Take this afternoon.
They threatened Susan Collins for weeks. They attempted to bribe her. They called her office and threatened to rape a member of her staff. They’ve harassed her in the hallways and screamed at her office door.
And it never once occurred to them that they might push Susan Collins to the point where she pushes back.
Instead of forcing Collins to cave, they pushed her to the point of fighting back. And these idiot Leftists are stunned and mystified that she pushed back.
Now, I get it.
Historically, Republicans cave.
They didn’t get the nickname “The Surrender Party” for no reason.
But, like everything the Left does, they pushed too hard and too far.
And miraculously, the Republicans were pushed to the point where they found their backbone and pushed back.
It’s Newton’s Third Law.
On July 11th, I wrote a column titled Will Kavanaugh get Borked? I’m thinking no.
But there’s another significant reason the planned borking of Brett Kavanaugh won’t happen the way they hope.
And it’s one of the Democrat Party’s own making.
During the 1987 confirmation hearing for Robert Bork, the level of hysteria, hyperbole and vitriolic nonsense launched against him was completely unique.
That’s no longer the case.
The Democrat Party and their far-Left non-profits have kept the hysteria level at Spinal Tap 11 since November 9, 2016.
They turn themselves inside out on a daily basis over every little thing this President does, says or tweets.
The screaming, the rioting, the violent protests in the streets have been virtually non-stop for twenty months.
It isn’t going to be a shock when Senate Democrats smear a Trump nominee, join in street protests to chant nonsensical Leftist slogans, or make gloom and doom predictions of impending death.
When they did that to Robert Bork it was so outside of the norm that Americans were stunned into paying attention.
But now, that behavior isn’t outside of the norm for Democrats at all.
Democrats behaving like lunatics howling helplessly at the sky while predicting Armageddon is the norm.
In fact, it’s become standard operating procedure since Trump was elected.
This is what I mean when I say that Democrats push too hard and too far.
Borking Brett Kavanaugh could’ve worked if the Democrats hadn’t already spent the entirety of Trump’s term thus far shrieking like wet cats and calling every single thing he does a “constitutional crisis.”
For crying out loud. How many times have these idiots predicted that we’re all going to die?
At this point Americans are so sick of the hyper-dramatic histrionics they’re pretty much tuning it out.
Like I said before, it’s become white noise — easily dismissed — not to mention enthusiastically mocked.
The so-called “mainstream” news media isn’t even close to being “mainstream” anymore – if it ever was.
In fact, the majority of Americans don’t trust the news media today.
So having the “mainstream” news media help promote the Democrat Party shrieking points against Brett Kavanaugh won’t be nearly as effective as it was in 1987 against Robert Bork.
And it certainly doesn’t help that the Democrats have Hollywood in their corner either.
Americans have a very low tolerance for pampered celebrities telling us how we should think or vote.
And when those celebrities decide to turn into psychotic Cassandras issuing portends of “dictatorship” over a SCOTUS nomination, they only make us detest them all the more.
In a nutshell, the Democrats have overplayed their hand…
And this time, any attempt to smear and slander Brett Kavanaugh the way they did Robert Bork is going to backfire on them in a big, BIG way.
No. I’m not Nostradamus.
I just know Leftists. Honestly, they aren’t that difficult to figure out. It’s not like they’re complex or nuanced.
Since Trump’s election, they have lost all reason.
And when you’ve been at Spinal Tap 11 since November 9, 2016, the only choice for unreasonable people is to crank it up even louder.
And they did, didn’t they?
Screaming, harassing, doxing, smears, concocted accusations of gang rape for Pete’s sake, death threats, violence.
Did they really think for one moment that there wouldn’t be any pushback?
You’d think the Science Party would understand Newton’s Third Law.
Of course there was going to be pushback.
How else do you explain the transformation of Senator Lindsey Graham into a badass fighter?
How else do you explain Senator Susan Collins – not typically known as a great statesman – giving a forceful defense of the presumption of innocence and the rule of law from the Senate chamber?
When the Democrats went all-in on this unhinged smear campaign, there really was no other possible outcome than the Republicans pushing back.
But don’t expect the Left to learn from this mistake.
They are incapable of self-reflection, so it will not occur to them to tone it down or dial it back.
Not one of them will say, “You know, we pushed this too far and it blew up in our faces. If we want any chance of winning in November, we really need to pull back on the throttle and instead make a cogent argument for voting Democrat.”
It is beyond their ability to do that.
And you know I’m right about that. For Pete’s sake, they still haven’t gotten over Hillary losing two years ago.
These people are incapable of pulling back on the throttle.
And that character flaw is going to bite them in the ass again very soon.
You can’t just keep pushing to the point of unhinged lunacy and not expect sane Americans to start pushing back.
We don’t want to live in a country where anarchy reigns.
And the only thing the Democrat Party and the Left offer is anarchy.
But rather than push back by screaming and threatening and smearing, sane Americans will do our pushback at the polls in November.
