Is it just me or have you noticed how desperately Democrats want to be hated and feared?
It’s become so widespread, they actually brag about it.
You think that bird-flipping weirdo politician who livestreamed himself attacking pro-life women and threatening to dox them is an anomaly?
This recent desire to be hated and feared first reared its ugly head with the rise of the deeply stupid Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
As I pointed out before she was even elected, she routinely tweeted that Republicans are scared of her — like it’s a badge of honor to instill fear.
In her case, however, it’s wishful thinking. Ocacio-Cortez wants to be feared – not because she’s particularly scary, but because it allows her to dismiss any criticism as “They’re just scared of me.”
But the Democrat trend to be hated and feared is really kicking into hyperdrive.
After the President’s State of the Union Address in February, NY Congresswoman Nydia Velázquez tweeted this:
Hi @TheCJPearson, I'm not "the woman sitting next to her". @AOC and I — and millions like us — are the future of this country. And you're right to be afraid of us.— Nydia M Velázquez (@ReElectNydia) February 6, 2019
But you should learn my name. https://t.co/frL8ikNDcV
At the time, I wrote:
It really is an odd phenomenon this desire to instill fear coming from elected Representatives in a Constitutional Republic.
These same idiots like to carp on about how “dark” and “fear-based” President Trump’s agenda is.
But they’re the ones who take delight in the prospect of making us afraid.
Wasn’t it Thomas Jefferson who said when people fear their government, there is tyranny; when a government fears the people, there is liberty?
Well, clearly Congresswoman Fear-Me is opting for the former.
Honestly, I have never seen politicians work so hard to be hated and feared.
I mean, it’s bad enough these idiots can’t stop insulting and attacking the American people like a bunch of wannabe tin-pot dictators.
But to brag about how they are hated and feared seems a wee bit on the nose.
Yesterday evening, I was tootling along on Twitter when I saw just two of the latest examples of Democrat politicians bragging about being hated and feared.
First, this from 2020 comic relief candidate Congressman Eric Swalwell.
They (the NRA) hate me because they know I’m not the bogeyman they want … I feel comfortable shooting guns. I do shoot guns. I think that they want the person who is proposing tougher gun laws to be someone who’s never handled a gun before.https://t.co/EdLpxAVt6V— Eric Swalwell (@ericswalwell) May 6, 2019
What serious Presidential candidate brags about being hated by fellow Americans?
I don’t think you matter enough to be hated.— Dianny 🇺🇸(@DiannyRants) May 6, 2019
To be fair, he’s not the only Democrat candidate bragging about being hated and feared by the NRA.
He’s just the most ridiculous.
[And given the make-up of the 2020 Democrat field, that’s saying a lot.]
Then I spotted this tweet from everybody’s favorite bigot Ilhan Omar.
This is a president who has come to power vilifying and demonizing immigrants and refugees. He proudly said we should halt Muslims from entering our country.— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) May 6, 2019
It’s not a surprise that he finds his biggest nemesis in me. https://t.co/vl7tjmnSFr
President Trump’s biggest nemesis is Ilhan Omar.
He’s so terrified of her power, he just can’t stop tweeting about her…
He’s tweeted about Ilhan a whopping one time.
Such a nemesis!!!!
But it isn’t that President Trump thinks of her as his nemesis. Because clearly he couldn’t care less about her.
It’s that Ilhan Omar wants to be hated and feared.
They all do.
The fact is, the Democrat Party has become the party of college radicals who seek to shut down, shout down and attack everyone who gets their way.
Their desire to be hated and feared while simultaneously maligning and attacking more than half the country isn’t an aberration. It is their strategy.
And it is deeply revealing.
What began in 2016 with Hillary’s Deplorable comment has only become more vicious and vitriolic since.
But now it isn’t enough to simply insult us; they also want us to fear them.
The façade of “caring” has been completely stripped away and we are seeing the Democrat Party for who they really are.
They hate this country.
They hate us.
And they don’t want to govern; they want to rule over us.
Even if that means they are hated and feared.
Call me crazy. But that doesn’t seem like a particularly winning strategy.
