RGB Dies, and for the Left, It’s the Fire This Time
Leftists vow to burn America, but what’s their plan for after that?
Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died at 87, and many Leftists are avidly calling for violence to prevent President Trump from naming, and the Senate from confirming, her successor. The Left’s political and cultural hegemony are more threatened now than they’ve ever been before, and some Leftists are saying openly that they’re ready to burn the country down to regain and secure their power. But they haven’t and the Senate from confirming They’re ready to burn the country down to preserve their political hegemony; but no one seems to have thought through this civil war business. If they do burn the country down, what will they have hegemony over?
The rage has even spilled across the border. Emmett Macfarlane, a political science professor at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, tweeted: “Burn Congress down before letting Trump try to appoint anyone to SCOTUS.” Here at home, Laura Bassett, a self-described “politics writer” for GQ, the Washington Post, Rolling Stone, Cosmopolitan, and the Huffington Post, issued her own threat: “If Mitch McConnell jams someone through, which he will, there will be riots.”
There were many others. Beau Willimon, the President of the Writers Guild of America, thundered: “We’re shutting this country down if Trump and McConnell try to ram through an appointment before the election.” Reza Aslan, the well-known cannibal and disgraced CNN host, chimed in: “If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire f**king thing down.” Leftist activist Eliel Cruz warned: “If the democrats don’t fight, the people are going to have to march on Washington and just shut it down ourselves.”
