Remember the recent flap about a Colorado ACLU honcho suggesting that Trump supporters be shot?
An American friend wrote to say that he had heard of it and was amazed at the “hypocrisy” of leftists. I was puzzled by his response and replied,
I don’t know that it IS hypocrisy. It’s only hypocrisy if one believes that there is such a thing as fact or evidence.
Progressives don’t. They believe in narrative and spin.
If they destroy people, it doesn’t matter. Those must have been bad or unwanted people.
They, by contract, are the ones they have been waiting for
Those who vote for progressives, refusing to see the significance of what they in fact believe, assume that all the bad stuff will happen to someone else, those other, bad people — the “rich,” the “haters,” — at any rate not to them.
Historically, they are almost always wrong. But at least they chose it—unlike many victims.
