There is no joy in their victory, only rage and revenge

There is no joy in their victory, only rage and revenge

Despite the fact that some states are still counting ballots, despite recounts and legal challenges, yesterday the news media decided to declare Joe Biden the forty-sixth President of the United States. Within an instant, swarms of people descended on the White House and Trump Tower — not to express joy in Biden’s victory, but to spitefully revel in Trump’s defeat.

They mocked and trolled the President — celebrating his defeat by kicking and battering effigies of him. Outside of the White House, they even placed a severed Trump head on a pike while they sneered and laughed.

For the Left victory never brings joy, only rage.

Win or lose, they react in the same vile and hateful way.

They always do.

Remember in 2015 when the Supreme Court ruled in favor of gay marriage?

It was a victory for the Left. And yet, instead of joy, there was only rage and revenge.

Like this:

And here we are again. The media preemptively declares Joe Biden the winner, and there is no joy, only rage.

Thanks to hastily filled out mail-in ballots, their guy “won.”  You’d think that would fill these people with joy.

But nope.

Back in 2014, at the now-defunct All the Right Snark, I wrote a column titled “The Rage of the Left” (which is available in my second volume of columns RANT 2.0: Even More Politics & Snark in the Age of Obama).

In it, I wrote:

They always get vile and nasty when they win because, for the Left, winning means sticking it to people they hate.

Their motives behind winning are to harm or destroy their enemies.

It doesn’t come from a place of joy, but from a place of rage.

Like the Palestinians who danced in the streets when over three thousand Americans were slaughtered on September 11, 2001, the Left celebrates when they’ve managed to inflict damage on those they despise.

Like when Rush Limbaugh suffered chest pains and ended up in the hospital while in Hawaii in 2009. My, but the Left went wild with glee. They were so excited at the possibility of Rush Limbaugh dying.

When you’re filled with that much hatred, you will never be happy.


Even these supposed calls for “unity” we’ve been hearing over the last few days are loaded with demands that we bend to their will.

Rather than simply expressing joy at Biden being declared the winner, Michelle Obama chose to slam those seventy-one million Americans who voted to reelect President Trump:

As an aside, don’t you find it interesting that Michelle views Trump as the “status quo” and not the guy who has been in government for nearly a half century?


It isn’t enough to win, Michelle also has to throw in an attack at those who voted for the other guy.

She wants to force us seventy-one million Americans to submit to the Left’s agenda – to accept them, not as our fellow Americans, but as our conquerors.

And if we don’t, as I wrote yesterday, they will put us on blacklists in order to ruin our lives.

What ugly, awful people they are.

That’s because they aren’t a party interested in reconciliation; they’re a party interested in submission. Is it surprising that a party that thinks that way would be devoid of joy when they win?

The Left is like an abusive husband who after years of beating the snot out of his wife tells her, “Honey, don’t you think it’s time we united? Let’s put an end to this fighting and come together in agreement with me.”

They don’t acknowledge that their side was source of endless strife, violence and hatred.

Instead, they act like they’ve been the saviors who will bridge the divide they created. As I said the other day, it is hard to bridge the divide after blowing up all the bridges.

Derek Hunter tweet - There is no joy in their victory, only rage and revenge

This is exactly how they acted in 2008. Obama’s decisive victory was not seen as a chance to unite the country, but rather an opportunity for payback.

Again, from my column “The Rage of the Left:”

Remember back in 2009, after Obama became President, all those people who chanted about Hope and Change took to the streets — not to celebrate and revel in hope and change, but to storm the homes of AIG executives and cut the deadbolts off foreclosed homes.

On election day in 2008, my polling place was surrounded by people with large plywood signs with posters of Obama glued to them. They stood on all the street corners and along the sidewalk outside of the library that was my polling place.

Rather than be filled with joy at the idea that the first black man ever was about to become president, they were shouting and yelling, waving their plywood signs in the faces of people walking into and out of the library. Shrieking at the cars driving by on the street.

I had to dodge these plywood signs on my way in so as not to be knocked unconscious in order to exercise my right to vote.

These folks were filled with rage. Not because they were going to lose, but because they were going to win.

When you hate the country, when you hate your fellow citizens, it isn’t surprising that victory would bring nothing but rage and revenge.

When you see us as the enemy, any perceived victory on your part means delivering righteous payback against those you hate.

How could there possibly be any joy in that?

Now in this present case, the lack of joy could also be explained by the fact that the only way Biden managed to get pushed over the top was through cheating, fraud and chicanery. And when you think so little of the country that you’re willing to win through malfeasance, joy – pure, unadulterated joy – is going to be in short supply.

Most of us inherently knew that any Biden victory would not bring this Utopian moment of unity because most of us know that for the Left even victory is a reason for rage and revenge.

If Biden pulls this off, they will still hate the country. They will still hate us. And they will make that clear every single day for the next four years.

Hell, the election isn’t even officially over and they’re already getting a jump on it.

WaPo tweet

Yesterday on MSNBC, Jennifer Rubin said that it isn’t just Trump that has to lose, all his “enablers” have to lose as well. Her message for the seventy-one million who voted for Trump is clear:

“We have to collectively, in essence, burn down the Republican Party. We have to level them. Because if there are survivors, if there are people who weather this storm, they will do it again. They will take this as confirmation that ‘Hey, it just pays to ride the waves. Look at me, I’ve made it through.’ And so up and down the ticket, Federal, State, Local offices, the country has to repudiate this.”

No survivors is not something one says when one is filled with joy in victory.

Because Jennifer, like the rest of the Left, is not filled with joy, but motivated by revenge.

Revenge, rage and resentment because there are Americans who do not submit to them.

These calls for “unity” are nothing but “Join us or we’ll destroy you.”

As Kurt Schlichter often says “they want you dead.”

A Biden victory won’t change that. In fact, since the “victory” is ill-gotten, it will probably only make it worse.

And when vengeance is your motivation, being filled with joy over winning is as much of a statistical impossibility as Biden winning 100% of the mail-in ballots miraculously “discovered” in the wee hours of the morning.

    “…a statistical impossibility as Biden winning 100% of the mail-in ballots…”

    And therein lies the hope. For justice. I believe there is a timeline for presidential transition after an election. Pretty sure there are more things to be done than a Dem woohoo in a parking lot

    Get ready for economic and societal collapse. Nobody will be spared.

    Democracy dies in dorkness.

    What is to stop the democrats from ignoring any court order they disagree with? Who’s going to stop them? Trump has fought almost alone for four years.The republicans in DC didn’t want him there any more than the libs did. Grahamnesty is already bleating about “finding common ground” with his democrat bedmates. If they think Trump will ultimately lose they’ll scramble for favor with the Communists who are poised to take power over us for at least a generation. Now they know they can control elections they’ll never lose again.

    The sworn enemies of INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM AND RESPONSIBILITY are sub-human rats. Will Hatred and Lies triumph over Love and the Truth? No. The Leftist freaks have no idea what they will be facing. The corrupt, senile buffoon and the stupid, cackling slut are NOT the future on America.

    Back in the early 1700s, Jonathan Swift (yes, the author of Gulliver’s Travels) wrote the following statement in his Letter to a Young Gentleman Lately enter’d into Holy Orders: “Reasoning will never make a Man correct an ill Opinion, which by Reasoning he never acquired: For in the Course of Things, Men always grow vicious before they become Unbelievers.” The first part of the statement is often cited to show the futility of trying to reason with someone whose position was not achieved by reasoning. The second part of the statement recognizes that viciousness is the inevitable result when such unreasoned people are faced with disbelief. My high school history teacher back in 1962 taught me “Never mistake the props for the drama.” Clearly, this current problem of Antifa, BLM, and “the resistance” isn’t new — Swift was writing about the same drama (different actors) centuries ago.
