The Democrat crack-up since the election

Kimberley Ross:
They call themselves The Resistance. They wear pu**y hats. They view everything coming from the White House through apocalyptic lenses. There is no room for rational observation; all must be extreme. While this would certainly be an exhausting way to proceed through life, it is the normal mode for those who are still reeling from Hillary’s loss and utterly consumed with apprehension as they look toward the near future.

As Iraq war veteran Jesse Kelly said on Twitter, “All Democrats have to do is not be insane. And they can’t do it.”

And we’ve seen more than one example of recently.

Last Saturday, youth and adults around the nation gathered for the March for Our Lives. The hundreds of thousands assembled in D.C. listened to speeches from impassioned teenagers whose own experiences during the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School had started a movement. While peaceful protesting is the right of every American, this one was solely about reducing Americans’ access to guns, as if the weapon was the actual problem on that fateful February day.

On Tuesday, former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens published an op-ed in The New York Times calling for full repeal of the Second Amendment. Stevens, and I’m sure the NYT, wanted to show how student-led protests were beginning a revolution. But as one columnist at The Washington Post explained, Stevens’ column did not help the cause.
…rarely do we see such an unhelpful, untimely and fanciful idea as the one put forward by retired Supreme Court justice John Paul Stevens.

In a New York Times op-ed on Tuesday, Stevens calls for a repeal of the Second Amendment. The move might as well be considered an in-kind contribution to the National Rifle Association, to Republicans’ efforts to keep the House and Senate in 2018, and to President Trump’s 2020 reelection bid. In one fell swoop, Stevens has lent credence to the talking point that the left really just wants to get rid of gun ownership and reasserted the need for gun-rights supporters to prevent his ilk from ever being appointed again (with the most obvious answer being: Vote Republican).

Stevens just signaled that at least one liberal appointee who inhabited the bench that could decide such matters really does want to take away one of those rights. And that’s about the best Republicans could have hoped for.
Backfire, indeed.
There is more.

In fact, there seems to be a never-ending string of outrage coming from the Democrats and their media cohorts.  Before one "outrage" begins to dribble away, they are on to the next one.  This lack of focus on anything by resistance will come back to haunt them.

The crack-up has also exposed the left's true agenda.
