‘Whatever we have to do; and
we’re not going to necessarily play fair.’
— Democrat(ic) party insider on MSNBC
Didn’t some communist write a folk song that went something like this:
It takes a worried man to write a worried blog.
Blaska is just the man for the job, given that the original gonzo reporter is no longer alive to chronicle the Fear and Loathing on the American Left. We demand combat pay. Cornered rats (in one more reference to Baltimore) are the most dangerous.
Our liberal-progressive-socialist acquaintances are starting to scare the unlettered field hands here at Blaska Experimental Work Farm — so simple and trusting, their souls. Seems they’ve gone especially virulent since the flop of the Mueller show. (Where is Quentin Tarantino when you need him?)
The creaky Eisenhower-era mainframe computer out in the garden shed has begun its doomsday countdown, so many hundred thousand minutes until 4 November 2020. That is the day after the next Presidential election. Which is to say, Armageddon. (As in, “arm a’ geddon outta here.”)
Hatches will be battened here at the Stately Manor. Perimeters secured.
Not that this 2016 never-Trumper is in particular distress over 45’s re-election as much as his anxiety over the unhinged Left’s reaction to same. The technical terms is “Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS).”
Many of our … acquaintances are becoming balmier than that aunt in the attic. They are going all A.O.C. over plastic straws, farting cows, manhole covers, Depression-era murals, and the good ol’ days of forced school busing. (The 1970s called, your lime-green leisure suits are ready at the cleaners.) Soliciting convicted felons to serve on police review committees. Pouring buckets of water on police. Bending and blending genders. Open borders and more free stuff. Reparations.
No chocolate or high heels in the Brave New World
Maureen Dowd in Sunday’s New York Times:
After I interviewed Nancy Pelosi a few weeks ago, The HuffPost huffed that we were Dreaded Elites because we were eating chocolates and — horror of horrors — the speaker had on some good pumps.
Yo, proletariat: If the Democratic Party is going to be against chocolate, high heels, parties and fun, you’ve lost me. And I’ve got some bad news for you about 2020.
The progressives are the modern Puritans. … They eviscerate their natural allies for not being pure enough …
Bang the pan slowly
An especially “woke” soul named Marty Beth Collins, director of the UW Center for Community and Nonprofit Studies, proposes that Trump syndrome sufferers bang pots and pans promptly at 8 p.m. every day until the bad orange man goes away. (Who says there is no diversity of thought at UW-Madison? Or that a college education does not guarantee useful skills?)
I am saying NO to the President calling Baltimore “a disgusting, rodent, rat-infested district.” These are not the words of a legitimate leader. … We must disrupt the peace every day, 8 p.m. every night. … Post and share photos and about why you are banging on all your social media outlets. Repeat daily.
It’s 7:45 p.m. (somewhere in the world).
Have you picked out YOUR pan and spoon!
Sophisticated surveillance equipment here at the Werkes detected no pots a-banging but if it does, the Squire will light up his Harley Davidson softail slim and let that 107 V-Twin play its own music.
Tumbrels are rolling
Eccentric, we can live with. It’s Antifa-angry that threatens the republic. The Trump Resistance is going all Robespierre, Peggy Noonan observes. “The French Revolution was led by sociopaths who politicized language, much like today’s Jacobins.”
The French Revolution … was more a nationwide psychotic break than a revolt — a great nation at its own throat, swept by a spirit not only of regicide but suicide.
Anne of Althouse posted the picture of The Meathead fulminating on MSNBC. It cannot be long before he has his own time slot. Anyone remember Eric Severeid? MSNBC contributor and Democratic National Committee advisor Donny Deutsch on Friday:
“We may not have won the battle of impeachment, but we’re going to win the war of putting him in jail. Whatever we have to do. And we’re not going to necessarily play fair.
“And for all the intellectuals out there whose hair is going to go on fire, ‘But we’re becoming like them, we’re becoming like them,’ we cannot lose the next election.”
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Can’t say America hasn’t been warned.
Great. You’re back to more high-brow humor. Oh, and there is precedent for Dowd’s sentiments: [1919:Red Mirage, by David Mitchell] Nestor Makhno has been reified as John Nichols.
C’mon Mr. Blaska. Journalistic ethics require that you attribute the Madisonian pan-banging thing to The Onion. That’s priceless.
Maybe they could try that pot-banging thing in Baltimore to scare the rats away.

Peggy Noonan is quite right to compare today’s leftists to the revolutionaries who gave France the bloodbath of the Great Terror. Not content with regicide, they insisted that the terms Monsieur and Madam be replaced with “citoyen”; they also decided that their revolution was so world-historical that it deserved its own calendar, beginning with the year One (formerly known as 1789). These are unmistakable signs of fanaticism–and if they can happen in a country whose most famous philosopher once opined “La raison a toujours raison,” they can happen here. And they are. Luckily, our own version of Louis XVI is much cannier than his French prototype–no Bastille will be falling on his watch, and if heads start rolling, they’ll be those of the fools in Congress who think they can dethrone him.
As Greg Gutfeld informed us, “The only thing dumber than Donnie Deutsch is two Donnie Deutsches.

Real real mad beta male Lefties, existentially emasculated by decades of being told how special they are and having surrendered their inconsequential ‘nads early on, would represent a collective fumbling/stumbling/bumbling Barney Fife.
When not protected by their Safe Space, heartened with plush cuddly stuffed animals, and emboldened by enabling grief counselors, when their feebly flaccid bluff gets called, watch them turn tail and run so fast that their hempen homespun petite coats blow up over their heads.
You have never held the line, stood and fought for anything. EVER. Stay on your decks and patios and let us real guys fight it out.
You have no idea what your (sic) talking about, all your (sic) doing is presenting an unparalleled, cringe-inducing example of what a damn fool you are.
“let us real guys fight it out.”
“Real guys” are 74 year-old MW earning, donut makers on the dole?

“Did you say ‘over’? Nothing is over until we decide it is? Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!”

“Real guys”? Now there’s an expression that reeks of toxic masculinity.
Errmmmmm….NEVER underestimate the enemy, Gotch. Note the use of weapons in the Antifa demonstrations in Oregon and at Charlottesville, and the credible rumors that some of them are arming up with bang-sticks and combat knives.
Whether they would actually know what to DO with the bang-sticks and combat knives is another matter.
And what are your good buddies in the Proud Boys carrying around? Trumpy bears?
I can’t catch a ride with your son…?
This is something that the unhinged political left does not seriously think about but they should.
Another swing…another miss…WHIFF!
Love how this guy considers himself so above the fray as he spews empty personal insults. Self awareness is not his strong suit.
This is worth repeating in this blog post too…
I think we are seeing how the 2020 Democratic Party “platform” will be defined in the media and propaganda. Demonizing will be all the rage, policy and truth will be irrelevant.
At the top of their rhetorical list is
• Trump == White Supremacist / Racist
• Trump == Criminal
• Trump == Traitor
• Trump == Anti-LGBTQ…
• Trump == Anti-Women
Therefore all things related to President Trump no matter how remotely associated or correlated are evil.
• MAGA == Racism (Scarlet Letters?)
• All Trump Policies == Racist
• All Trump supporters == Racists
• Anyone that doesn’t hate Trump == Racist
• Anyone that disagrees with Trump haters == Racist
• Being Conservative == Racist
• Being Christian == Racist
• Not openly supporting LGBT etc == Racist
• Not supporting abortion == Racist
• Police == racist
• Support Police == Racist
• Anti illegal immigration == Racist
• Think laws should be enforced == Racist
• Live outside the inner city == Racist
• Don’t support $15 minimum wage == Racist
• Enjoy working in “Trumps” improving economy == You’re Supporting Racism
• Support 2nd Amendment == Racist
• Support 1st Amendment for the political right == Racist
• Support the rule of law == Racist
• Support the 14th Amendment == Racist
• Support the founding documents of the USA == Racist
• The American Flag == Racist
• Speak in favor of the Trump campaign == Inciting riot
• Trump plays golf == Golfers are racists
The list goes on and on…
The 2020 presidential election will be a defining moment for the 21st century political left, they have too much invested in their social justice rhetoric to let up or turn back now. They have defined all things that are to the political right of the extreme political left as evil, it’s time to move ahead full steam. The political left MUST nominate a non-white person to run for President or they risk alienating the entire non-white community and all of the social justice warriors, plus if they were to nominate a “white” person they will prove beyond any doubt that their social justice rhetoric is a complete fraud. Either they practice what they preach or they become completely irrelevant, it’s all in, or it’s nothing.
Regardless if you agree with anything I wrote above or not; we saw the reaction to Trump winning in 2016 and the followup three years of growing hate and irrational behavior from the anti-Trumpers, do you think the hyped-up irrational anti-Trumpers will react with same kind of devastating sorrow this time around; I don’t. I ask you, what could possibly go wrong inside the brain of an already irrational anti-Trumper that’s been constantly bombarded for four years (in 2020) with unethical and immoral rationalizations justifying their hate? I hope I’m wrong, but what could go wrong? Eventually these emotional lunatics are going to SNAP because they don’t get their way.
I’m worried about what the hoard of irrational hate filled anti-Trump sheep will do. It’ll be kinda like feeding your pet Mogwai after dark and then throwing the resulting Gremlin off the Milwaukee Wisconsin peer straight into Lake Michigan.
Seriously, what happens if President Trump gets reelected in 2020?
Are these apocalyptic predictions, you bet they are and like all predictions there is only a chance that they will come true. If there is one thing that history has shown us it’s that when there’s verifiable patterns of escalating unhinged emotional reactions from people and those emotional reactions include physical violence, it’s terribly unwise to disregard the existence of those patterns and plan ahead as if everyone is coexisting peacefully.
We do not know and cannot predict what the snapping point will be for unhinged people but you damn well better be ready for it IF it happens.
Buy. More. Ammo.
I’m not quite as pessimistic as you are, but our esteemed host’s reports from Madistan demonstrate that Right Order is no longer commonplace, and is getting less so every damn day in certain quarters.

“Apocalyptic predictions”? Maybe, but they could just as easily be the all too reliable predictions of the logical outcome of decades of the Democrats’ toxic identity politics.
Toxic politics? Have you listened to Pfrump lately? Does it make you proud? Stir your loins?
What happens if trump loses?
There’s historical evidence of how Republicans will react.
