I can’t count the number of times I have pointed out that the Left will always push too hard and too far.
If you’re a regular reader, you probably know I hit that point a lot.
And the consequences of always pushing too hard and too far is eventually, there will be pushback.
It’s Newton’s Third Law: “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.”
You’d think the so-called “Party of Science” would understand Newton’s Third Law.
But they don’t.
As I pointed out last week, pushing too hard and too far on gun control has resulted in the NRA having the best fundraising month in fifteen years.
When you push too hard and too far, there is always pushback.
I call it “Operation Backfire.”
And you don’t have to worry about me pointing this out. Because the Left cannot stop itself from doing it even if they wanted to.
As I wrote in my column Arrogance and Ignorance:
Arrogance and ignorance — the two traits that the ResistanceLOL is unable to change. Both are hard-wired into their psyche.
And that arrogance and ignorance is why they keep making the same mistakes over and over again expecting different results.
They’ll never change.
They’ll never wise up.
Because they really do believe that they are the smart ones and we are the idiots.
They really do believe that only people who think like them are worthy of their time or respect.
And it is so going to bite them on the ass.
Well, it’s time for another example of what happens when you push too hard and too far.
This time, from an exclusive report at Reuters:
Enthusiasm for the Democratic Party is waning among millennials as its candidates head into the crucial midterm congressional elections, according to the Reuters/Ipsos national opinion poll.
The online survey of more than 16,000 registered voters ages 18 to 34 shows their support for Democrats over Republicans for Congress slipped by about 9 percentage points over the past two years, to 46 percent overall. And they increasingly say the Republican Party is a better steward of the economy.
As the Democrat Party pushes itself further and further to the Left, those whom they believed were solidly behind them are in reality getting left behind.
Young voters represent an opportunity and a risk for both parties, said Donald Green, a political science professor at Columbia University in New York City.
“They’re not as wedded to one party,” Green said. “They’re easier to convince than, say, your 50- or 60-year-olds who don’t really change their minds very often.”
Terry Hood, 34, an African-American who works at a Dollar General store in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and took this year’s poll, said he voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.
But he will consider a Republican for Congress because he believes the party is making it easier to find jobs and he applauds the recent Republican-led tax cut.
“It sounds strange to me to say this about the Republicans, but they’re helping with even the small things,” Hood said in a phone interview. “They’re taking less taxes out of my paycheck. I notice that.”
And meanwhile, the Democrats are not shy about announcing that if they regain the majority in Congress, they will repeal those very tax cuts.
See what I mean?
They push too hard and too far every single time.
In the end, even for Millennials, it seems that “it’s the economy, stupid.”
Yet for the Democrats, it’s all about identity politics and radicalism.
And that just isn’t a particularly winning strategy.
But they won’t stop pushing. Because they can’t stop pushing.
Once they put their car in drive, there’s no backing up, no going in reverse.
How can they? They’ve driven themselves off the cliff.
It’s another clear indication that the Democrat Party is woefully out of touch with the country.
And I suspect that will hurt them in November.
In fact, couple this poll with the seismic cultural shifts we’ve been seeing lately, and I think the Democrats just might be teetering on the brink of collapse.
The talk of a “Blue Wave” is, for now, nothing but talk — pushed by a compliant news media invested in seeing the Democrats take power.
And if this trend continues, that Blue Wave will be as non-existent as Hillary Clinton’s 98% chance of becoming President.
Now, it’s up to the Republicans to seize the moment and make the most of the Democrats’ repeated mistakes.
The jury, however, is still out on whether the Republican Party is up to the task.
